Boston HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) records are kept by the
American Jewish Historical Society. While their main facility recently
moved to NYC, they still maintain the Boston HIAS records, and I believe
most/all Boston-related materials, in their facility on the campus of
Brandeis Univ., in Waltham MA. Their holdings are described very well in
the following Infofile: http://www.jewishgen.org/jgsgb/ajhs.html

Make sure that you check _all_ of the Boston HIAS records, not just the
arrival records. I recently found a massive amount of correspondence there
regarding the efforts of my wife's g-grandfather and his cousins to help
out their cousins in Europe who had managed to survive the Holocaust and
who were in DP camps or elsewhere.

The AJHS website can be found here: http://www.ajhs.org/
Their email address, as given on their website, is: ajhs@ajhs.org
Their addresses are as follows (also >from their website):
15 West 16th Street
New York, NY 10011
Tel: 212-294-6160

2 Thornton Road
Waltham, MA 02453
Tel: 781-891-8110

I hope this helps!
