Description"Founded in 1881 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, and Charles Eliot Norton (the Society's first three presidents) and others, the DSA is the second oldest officially constituted organization in the world and it is dedicated to the furtherance of the study of the works of Dante Alighieri. Dante Alighieri (1265 -1321) was a Florentine poet. His greatest work, La divina commedia (The Divine Comedy), is considered the greatest literary statement produced in Europe in the medieval period. The society's official residence is at Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Society publishes the annual Dante Studies, sent gratis to all members, a semi-annual Newsletter, and an electronic version of the American Dante Bibliography, also printed each year in Dante Studies."
