This project, sponsored by the American Antiquarian Society, continued the work of improving and adding additional entries to the database of engravings and images from the early issues of Scientific American magazine. This is the sixth year of the project, and continuing from past groups, the current group has managed to finish the indexing of images from 1859 through 1865, bringing the database to contain a full twenty years of engravings. As a historical research topic, the team considered Scientific American as a "middleman" between various stakeholders such as the readers, editors, and inventors, and how the periodical’s publishing was ahead of the time in terms of advertising, promotion, and business sense.
