History of the Lawrence Base Ball Club
The club played matches against a club formed by men in the Harvard Law School . Practice was held where the University Museum now stands, while matches were played on Cambridge Common near the Washington Elm. It is unclear when the club disbanded, but it is likely to have broken up during the Civil War.
Its first members were largely, although not exclusively, students of the Lawrence Scientific School, which was Harvard's first graduate school dedicated solely to science and engineering . Early members included Frederic Ward Putnam, a professor and Harvard College alumnus from the Class of 1862, and José Eulogio Delgado, a Harvard College alumnus from Class of 1858 and later Minister of Finance for Peru.
