Historical Note

This volume is part of a series of Harvard class books, which may be considered the nineteenth-century counterpart to yearbooks in general or the published works known as Harvard Class Reports in the 20th century.  Harvard classes began compiling Class Books in about 1800 and discontinued the practice around 1900.  For the most part the class books lack photographs; however, the Class Secretary for the Class of 1828 appears to have acquired photographs of the alumni from his year ca. 1870.
