From the FLP mailbox, this notice of research fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society:
The Massachusetts Historical Society will offer about 30 research fellowships for the academic year 2010-2011, including at least two long-term research fellowships made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Society also offers Short-Term Fellowships, and participates in the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium.

The MHS also has some of its collections online here. Of particular interest to legal scholars might be the collection of manuscripts and early printed material about the abolition of slavery in 18th century Massachusetts, as well as the extensive holding of papers of John and Abigail Adams.
