The Yale Center for Parliamentary History

There is a long tradition of Tudor-Stuart studies at Yale University. The Center for Parliamentary History was established in 1966 under the directorship of Professor J.H. Hexter. From its inception the Center's objectives have been twofold: first, to edit and publish the proceedings in the Stuart parliaments and second to make the source materials collected at the Center available to scholars and students.
