The Santayana Digital Library is a collection of digital objects created by or related to notable Spanish-American philospher and author George Santayana (1863-1952) assembled and maintained by researchers at the Santayana Edition.
Many of the digital objects in this Library are photographs of the cartoons George Santayana drew for the Harvard Lampoon between 1883 and 1886. While the Santayana Edition has long held copies of the vast majority of Santayana's works, this is the first time that a concerted effort has been made to aquire a complete set of hi drawings for presentation to the public. These cartoons can be difficult to locate online, and their complete compilation here, in full color and high resolution, is the first such collection on the Internet.
Many of Santayana's early works are in the public domain, and all of those works have been included in this library. Thanks to the efforts of the selfless volunteers at Project Gutenburg, the Internet Archive and Librivox, Santayana's work can be accessed in a variety of digital formats, including some audio performances.
The Santayana Digital Library was concieved and created in the fall of 2016 by Santayana Edition intern, Keenan Salla, in the course of his work towards a dual Public History/Library Science Masters degree from IUPUI.
