The Eugenics Archive: An online archive of manuscripts, photographs, pedigree charts and other archival material related to the American Eugenics Movement.
Women Working, 1890-1930: An aggregate of everything in Harvard’s holdings related to women working, including diaries, institutional records, magazines and photographs.
The Modernist Journals Project: Digitizes U.S. and British modernist periodicals from 1890-1922. (Speaking of 1922, here is Roxane Shirazi’s fantastic article on the impacts of copyright law on modernist periodical studies.)

I have therefore accumulated several NYC-specific resources, which I include here in case they are of interest.)
