COLLECTIONS: 1 - 9 of 9
This collection contains letters to Lemuel Shaw, dated 1798-1857, from five other members of the Harvard College class of 1800: Timothy Boutelle, Timothy Flint, Abiel Holbrook, William Sawyer, and Daniel Kimball. A folder enclosed with the correspondence indicates Shaw was on a committee to collect biographical information on the class of 1800, and these letters, which date from their college days until late adulthood, may have been used to compile a class book.
