10. Shevchenko Scientific Society

63 4th Avenue Shevchenko Scientific Society

The Shevchenko Scientific Society is a Ukrainian scientific society founded in Lviv with a branch in Manhattan at 63 Fourth Avenue. The society, founded in 1873, promotes scholarly research and publication and takes its name from poet Taras Shevchenko.

The organization started off as promoting just Ukrainian literature, but it later shifted to research in three areas: history-philosophical, philological, and mathematically-medical-natural scientific. The society has a specialized library, an archives depository pertaining to Ukraine and its diaspora, and an art collection. The society at large is now publishing the third volume of Encyclopedia of the Ukrainian Diaspora.
