In February of 1985, Dr. Charles Gehring welcomed readers to the first issue of the New Netherland Project’s newsletter, thanking those who submitted “imaginative suggestions” for a name: “everything from North Atlantic Association for New Netherland Research (NAAFNNR) to the St. Louis Browns.” Ultimately, Charly thought it appropriate to revive the name of the newsletter that Jeremias van Rensselaer mentioned twice in his correspondence: de Nieu Nederlanse Marcurius.

After thirty-four fruitful years, we have retired the paper version of the Marcurius. But its name lives on in our monthly e-newsletter.
