A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.
Description: The Germanic Museum Bulletin was published on an occasional basis from November, 1935, to March, 1940. The need for such a publication was expressed in the first issue: "The Germanic Museum has long needed a medium through which it could communicate the news of its activities, aims, and accomplishments to friends. With this in view, we are publishing this bulletin." The Bulletin contained scholarly articles about the significance of new acquisitions and loans to the museum, and such other topics as "German art of the 18th century" and "Goethe's drawings." Each issue also included a list of recent acquisitions and new members of the Germanic Museum Association, the museum's friends group. Harvard's Germanic Museum, founded in 1901, was renamed the Busch-Reisinger museum and incorporated into the Harvard University Art Museums (now the Harvard Art Museum) in 1983.
