PREFACE. 



Prof. Tyler's History of Amherst College was published in 1873. 
It was au accurate and exhaustive record of the life of the college, 
of its professors and teachers, its trustees and benefactors, during 
its first half century. But to give a complete view of the work 
accomplished and the influence exerted by the college, something 
more was needed. The history- of the college is fittingly supple- 
mented by the biographies of the graduates, and before the former 
work had left the printer's hands, the task of collecting material for 
the latter had begun. 

The Biographical Record of the Alumni was authorized by the 
Trustees in 1872, and Prof. E. P. Crowell and Prof. W. L. Monta- 
gue were appointed to take charge of the work. A division of the 
labor was made, Prof. Crowell taking the earlier half of the classes, 
through 1850, and Prof. Montague the later, through 1871. Although 
circulars were at once issued to obtain the desired information, the 
requisite facts have, in many cases, been obtained only after much 
search and repeated inquiries. Yet, as rapidly as the pressure of Col- 
lege duties made it practiciQjie, the work has been carried forward 
to a conclusion. 

From 1876 to 1879, the work of gathering information respecting 
the first twenty-nine classes was carried forward by Prof. Chickeriug, 
and after that time resumed and completed by Prof. Crowell. 
The final preparation for the press of the materials thus collected 
has been made by Mr. W. S. Biscoe. The record of the classes 
from 1851 to 1871 inclusive has been wholly prepared by Prof. 
W. L. Montague, who has also had the editorial slipervisiop of the 
entire work. 

The editors have endeavored to make the reports as brief as possi- 
ble ; all eulogies have been carefully avoided, and the simple facts 
of each life stated ; and jet, notwithstanding their utmost eflJbrts, the 



iv PREFACE. 

volume has extended nearly a hundred pages beyond what was expect- 
ed. The following general order has been adopted in giving the record 
of each graduate : 

1. His personal history before graduation. 

2. His professional life ; including both the study and practice of 
his profession, with the facts arranged as far as possible chronolog- 
ically. 

3. Official positions held, books or pamphlets written, and hono- 
rary degrees received. There has been a great difference in the 
fullness with which the facts of this section have been stated in the 
written reports received, and a corresponding difference will conse- 
quently be found in the printed record. 

4. The death of deceased graduates ; marriage and number of 
children. 

5. The present P. O. address of all living graduates. 

From some of the living graduates, it has been impossible to 
obtain any answer to the various circulars sent, and their records 
are of necessity incomplete. Friends and relatives have supplied 
some of the facts, but the editors do not feel that they are responsi- 
ble for any error or omission in such records. In other cases 
there are seeming errors in the spelling of names, but it has been 
thought best to follow closely the responses which have been received. 
For the same reason tliere are frequent diversities in the way in 
which similar facts are given in different places, as well as in the 
fullness of individual records. 

The graduates of Amherst College during its first half century 
have been engaged in the different professions and occupations as 
follows: 887 have been clergymen ; 92, foreign missionaries; 181, 
physicians; 305, lawyers; 348, teachers; 233, authors; 138, pro- 
fessors; 26, college presidents; 83, editors ; 178 have engaged in 
business; 41 have been merchants; 32, manufacturers; 76, 
farmers; 21, civil engineers ; 2, U. S. ministers; 2, U.S. Commis- 
sioners; 10, members of Congress; 28, State Senators; 81, mem- 
bers of State Legislatures; 2, governors; 41, judges; 207, in the 
U. S. Army ; 9, in the Confederate Army ; 1 has been Postmaster- 
General ; and 1, a Bishop ; the whole number has been 1968. 



Every one, who notices an error or omission in the Record, will 
confer a favor upon the College by sending the correction to the 
College Librarian. 



INTRODUCTION. 



In the Preface to the History of Amherst College, which was 
published in 1873, it was announced that at my instance and 
the request of the Faculty Professors Crowell and Montague had 
commenced the collection of materials for a History of the Graduates 
of the College, which would be given to the public as soon as it could 
be prepared. After the lapse of ten years that promise is now ful- 
filled, though not without some change of plan and of hands in the 
execution of the work, which will be explained in the Preface. 
Meanwhile Professor Montague has prepared and printed, with great 
labor and painstaking, a Record of the Non-Graduate Members of 
Amherst College from 1821 to 1871. These three works, the His- 
tory of the College, the Record of its Alumni, and the Record of its 
Non-Graduates, together with the Exercises at the Semi- Centennial, 
and Student Life at Amherst, all clustering about the Semi-Centen- 
nial, make up a pretty complete picture, or series of pictures, of 
Amherst College during the first half century of its existence. 

If any of the readers of this Record wonder why a period as long 
as that of the Trojan War should have elapsed before its completion, 
let them undertake for themselves the compilation of such a mass of 
biography and history — nearly two thousand lives, over three thou- 
sand including the Non-Graduates ; or let them read in the Preface 
to the Record of Non- Graduates Professor Montague's account of the 
process of collecting materials, the sources from which they have 
been gathered, the procrastinations and delays even of those who 
have been willing to communicate the facts, and the various means, 
instruments of torture shall I say. (surely it must have been torture 
to the authors, if not to the subjects of the history) by which infor- 
mation has been extorted from the reluctant and the indifferent. 
Then let them think of the more than hydrostatic pressure, to which 



Vi INTRODUCTION. 

these hard, (or perhaps worse, soft), crude, incongruous and bulky 
materials must have been subjected in order to reduce them within 
the compass of a medium-sized volume ! For myself I only wonder 
that the authors have lived through the process and been able to 
accomplish the work at all. 

To me this Record has been as fascinating as it has been instruc- 
tive. I was scarcely able to lay it aside till I had read it through, 
from beginning to end. Of course it is not to be expected that all, 
if indeed any, of the readers of this volume will feel the same inter- 
est in its perusal which I have felt, who have known as students the 
graduate and the non-graduate members of all but the first half a 
dozen classes, and have made the acquaintance of nearly all the mem- 
bers of those classes as they have revisited the College from time to 
time at Commencement. Yet I have learned much which I did not 
know about almost every person whose name appears ; and I can 
hardly tell which have interested me the most, the old or the new 
facts, the old or the new acquaintances. In one or the other of these 
ways every alumnus will find matter of interest and instruction in 
every record. 

In reviewing the history of classmates and college acquaintances, 
the thoughtful reader will probably meet with three kinds of surprises. 
He will be agreeably surprised, that some from whom he expected 
little, have done so much and done it so well. He will be sadly dis- 
appointed, that some who promised so much in College have accom- 
plished so little after graduation, and some, alas ! who did pretty 
well in college have made an utter shipwreck in the voyage of life. 
But most frequently' of all he will be surprised to see that the great 
majority have been in after life so nearly and essentiall}'^ what they 
were in College ; though after all this is only the old law that the boy 
is father to the man, and whatsoever a man soweth that shall he 
also reap. 

On the whole we shall doubtless feel that we have no occasion to 
be ashamed of our mother or her sons ; on the contrary, the more we 
know of her and of them, the more we shall love and honor both. 
If they are her jewels, she is their pearl. The brotherhood of our 
College answers somewhat to the description which the Apostle Paul 
has given of the church in Corinth : Not many mighty, not many 
noble, not very many who sit in the high places of political power 
and preferment ; but a great number of those whom God has called 
to run in his service, and to do the hard work that needs to be done 



INTRODUCTION. VU 

in the church and the world. We have our leaders in every sphere 
of public life, of whom we are justly proud. But the rank and file 
of our sacramental host, the fighting and the working men who are 
serving their country and mankind in the toil and battle of life, in 
business and the professions, in the pulpit and the press, in literature 
and science and education and religion — these are the strength and 
the glory of Amherst. 

The Alumni cannot but be grateful to the authors for a book 
which, besides being so instructive and so convenient for reference, 
will serve to brighten the chain of those college friendships which 
are among the most sacred that bind together human hearts, and 
which only grow more hallowed with the flight of years. We older 
graduates especially must feel drawn closer to each other and 
our youuger brothers as we read these records of the living and the 
dead, and we may well seize the occasion to greet Alma Mater 
and all her children in the words of Longfellow : Morituri Salutamus.
