William Massa

Retired Head of Collection Development, Manuscripts & Archives

Bill Massa’s primary prior work experience was at the Smithsonian Institution Archives in Washington, DC, from 1977 to 1988 when he moved to Yale.  He works in Manuscripts and Archives, Sterling Memorial Library, most recently as Head of Collection Development (working with donors to acquire manuscript collections based on our collecting criteria).  He also spends a fair amount of time with researchers, including undergraduates, who are in need of primary source materials for an academic assignment, a student publication, or a major writing project such as a dissertation or monograph. 

As a Trumbull College Fellow, he has been advising freshmen since the late 1990s. This has truly been the most fulfilling part of his life at Yale; he enjoys getting to know not only the advisees assigned to him, and through them, their friends.  He also serves as a Personal Librarian to about 35 Trumbull freshmen and sophomores each year.

His primary academic interest is Yale history, but he has gained a wide knowledge of primary sources at Yale and searching for related materials beyond Yale. 

Outside of Yale, he enjoys hiking, snowshoeing (bring on the snow and lots of it!), and collecting early (mid-18th to about the 1820s) American domestic lighting devices.
