Correspondence regarding the merger of Hamilton and Kirkland Colleges

Restrictions

Restricted for 25 years; restriction now lifted. E-mail from W. Lawrence Gulick, 2/24/2005, confirms lifting of restriction: The materials which I delivered to Ralph Stenstrom (the Librarian) and Frank Lorenz (then Archivist) in 1989 consist of documents and correspondence relevant to the merger of Kirkland and Hamilton. I judged it best if the materials remained private until a twenty-five year period had elapsed, beginning with the formal merger in 1979. Accordingly, the restriction may now be lifted, a date I made plain in my transmittal letter to Mr. Stenstrom. Four years ago Mr. Lorenz and I agreed that it would be useful for me to make an effort to organize the materials, and so I spent three days on the Hill, adding dated explanatory notes when it seemed useful so to do. You should know that some former Kirkland faculty who continue to serve Hamilton are quite likely to be disturbed by some of the contents. Indeed, the restriction was intended to make minimum the bitterness that accompanied the merger. Use judgment. Best wishes, W. Lawrence Gulick

Christian H.F. Peters Papers (C.H.F. Peters Papers) (0000.123)

Biographical Information

Litchfield Professor of Astronomy at H.C.: 1858-90 Christian Henry Frederick Peters was born in Coldenbüttel, Schleswig, Germany on 19 September, 1813, and died on 19 July, 1890, in Clinton, NY. Peters earned his Ph.D. from the University of Berlin in 1936. After working with Baron von Walterhausen on a geodetic survey of Mount Etna from 1838 until 1843, Peters fought as an artillery officer under Garibaldi in the revolt against the King of Naples. After the failure of the revolt, Peters fled to Malta. He returned to Sicily the following year, but the fall of Palermo caused him to travel to France, then Constantinople. Peters immigrated to the United States in 1852 and began working for the Dudley Observatory in Albany, NY, a position he held until 1858. In 1858, the Hamilton College Board of Trustees offered Peters the directorship of the Litchfield Observatory. With the support of Edwin C. Litchfield '32, Peters became the first member of the Hamilton College faculty with a Ph.D., was named the Litchfield Professor of Astronomy in 1867, and continued to serve the school until his death. During Peters' time at Hamilton, he discovered 47 asteroids from the Litchfield Observatory and, with help from the University of the State of New York, determined the longitude of the western boundary of New York State, as well as the longitude for several cities, including Buffalo, Syracuse, and Elmira. With Peters' death, the Litchfield Observatory fell into disrepair. Although it was mentioned in college catalogues until 1917, it was never effectively manned and was torn down in 1918.

Johnson, Alexander Bryan, Papers: 1815 - 1875 (0000.183)

Biographical Information

(1786 -1867) Banker, economist, semanticist, and philosopher, of Utica, NY H.C. Class of 1832 Alexander Bryan Johnson was born on 29 May, 1786 in Gosport, England and died in Utica, NY on 9 September, 1867. Johnson came to Utica from England with only a grammar school education in 1801 to join his father's trading business. After establishing a glass factory in Geneva, NY in 1810, Johnson used the capital he had earned to move to New York City to invest in bank stocks and study banking methods. When the fighting of the War of 1812 threatened New York City, Johnson returned to Utica where he married Abigail Louisa Adams, granddaughter of former United States President John Adams in 1814. He served as the manager of the Utica Insurance Company (1815-1819) and was appointed president of the Ontario Bank Branch (1819) before being named director of the Bank of Utica. Johnson took an interest in law and was admitted to the bar in 1833, though he never actively practiced. He was also involved in politics, serving as a delegate to the Baltimore Convention in 1835, the result of which was the re-nomination of Martin Van Buren for president. He was awarded an honorary degree by Hamilton College in 1832. Along with his talent for banking and law, Johnson was a noted philosopher and semanticist. Though his theories were mostly ignored during his lifetime, his work evidences his anticipation of the concerns of modern linguistic philosophy and logical positivism. A prolific writer on all matters that interested him, Johnson published several treatises during his life, including, "The Nature of Value, Capital, etc." (1818); "The Philosophy of Human Knowledge" (1828); "Treatise on Language" (1836); "Religion in Relation to the Present Life" (1840); "The Meaning of Words Analyzed" (1854);" Physiology of the Senses" (1856); "An Encyclopedia of Instruction" (1857); and a "Guide to Right Understanding of our American Union" (1857).

Davis, Henry, Correspondence: 1817 - 1833 (also Treadwell and Maltbie) (0000.184)

Biographical Information

(1771 - 1852) Clergy and President of Middlebury and Hamilton (1817 - 1833) Colleges Henry Davis was born in East Hampton, NY, on 15 September, 1771 and died in Clinton, NY, on 8 March, 1852. A classical scholar and preacher, Davis graduated from Yale College in 1796. After working as a tutor for Williams College and Yale College, Davis was appointed professor of classics at Union College. In 1806 he became the second president of Middlebury College, a position he held until he agreed to become the second president of Hamilton College in 1816. Davis was an unpopular president. His time at Hamilton College was characterized by continuous struggles between himself and the Board of Trustees that lasted more than ten years and nearly resulted in the collapse of Hamilton. In addition to fulfilling his duties as president of Hamilton, Davis was instrumental in the establishment of the Auburn Theological Seminary in 1818. After Davis resigned his presidency in 1832, he wrote a book on Hamilton's turmoil, "A Narrative of the Embarrassments and Decline of Hamilton College," published in 1833. Davis continued to attempt to impose his ideas on college policies by attending meetings of the Board of Trustees until his death in 1852.

Lightbulb--AEO: Theodore W. Case sent this lightbulb made 5/29/1929 to S.H. Adams on 6/11/1931 1917 - Theodore W. Case developed the Thalofide photocell that used thallium oxysulfide. By 1922 he developed the Aeo-light as a source of modulated light. E. I. Sponable worked with Case after 1916 and from 1922 to 1925 he shared equipment with de Forest. Case and Sponable in 1924 developed a sound recording mechanism for a modified Bell and Howell camera using the Aeo-light tube. After breaking off from de Forest in 1925, Case began to develop a projector sound head, offset 20 frames at a speed of 90 ft. per min., using a narrow slit with a helical filament. General Electric and Western Electric were developing their own sound systems, so did not wish to buy into the Case-Sponable system. William Fox licensed the system July 23, 1926, and organized the Fox-Case Corp. with Courtland Smith as president to develop what became known as the Movietone News service. Sponable left the Case lab to join Fox in designing the recording studios in New York and Hollywood, and he designed in 1927 a screen that allowed sound to pass through the screen. The Fox-Case Corp. licensed amplifiers and speakers from Western Electric in 1926 and from ERPI organized in January 1927.

Biographical Information

Isaac Hollister Hall, Class of 1859, A.M. (1862), Ph.D. (1876), L.H.D., ADP, Phi Beta Kappa '90, lawyer, editor. Died NYC 1896. Isaac Hollister Hall (December 12, 1837 - July 2, 1896), American Orientalist, was born in Norwalk, Connecticut. He graduated at Hamilton College in 1859, was a tutor there in 1859-1863, graduated at the Columbia Law School in 1865, practised law in New York City until 1875, and in 1875-1877 taught in the Syrian Protestant College at Beirut, where he discovered a valuable Syriac manuscript of the Philoxenian version of a large part of the New Testament, which he published in part in facsimile in 1884. He worked with General di Cesnola in classifying the famous Cypriote collection in the Metropolitan Museum of New York City, and was a curator of that museum from 1885 until his death in Mount Vernon, New York, on the 2nd of July 1896. He was an eminent authority on Oriental inscriptions. Following the scanty clues given by George Smith and Samuel Birch, and working on the data furnished by the di Cesnola collection, he succeeded about 1874 in deciphering an entire Cypriote inscription, and in establishing the Hellenic character of the dialect and the syllabic nature of the script. His work in Cypriote epigraphy is described in his articles in Scribner's Magazine, vol. 20 (June, f 880), pp. 205-211 and in the Journal of the American Oriental Society, vol. 10, No. 2 (1880), pp. 201-218. He published in facsimile the Antilegomena epistles (1886), which he deciphered from the WF Williams's manuscript, and edited A Critical Bibliography of the Greek New Testament as Published in America (1884).

Abraham was planned to arrive after classes were over in May, but he made his unexpected debut in April and thus was able to be fully present at graduation. It was his first, but not his last, graduation on the Hill -- he attended his own graduation in 1999!

Description

Quilt designed and made by Judy Walsh Baumhover '88 and donated by Petros Kitsos '88. Description by Judy Baumhover: After requesting and receiving various Hamilton textiles and memories from classmates, the quilt went through many design transformations before appearing as you see it now. Common denominators among the memories submitted including friends, snow, wind and, of course, beer. The t-shirts included in the quilt tell a story all on their own, but I also incorporated snowflake blocks, and windmill blocks in honor of mother nature and her hold on us during our time on the Hill. The inclusion of "friendship" star blocks, beside the obvious, was a little more personal. I spent many a night walking along Campus Road or lying on the football bleachers staring up at the stars. It was a great way to take a break from studying. "Home" has always been elusive to me, due to a life constantly on the move. I have a need and appreciation for community, and I found such a community at Hamilton College. May this quilt remind you of the fun and valuable times you experienced at Hamilton, as well as the lasting relationships whose seeds were planted on this campus many years ago.

1944-1945 Letters to Mrs. L. David Hawley, found in wall at 100 College Hill Road (2013.12)

Biographical Information

See Hamilton Alumni Review, Volume L [1985], Number 1, p. 33-34, necrology of David Hawley for more details. For Dorothy Udall, see http://history.fcgov.com/u?/ma,13139 -- Rob and Dorothy Udall were two Colorado State University professors: Rob Udall was a professor in CSU's College of Veterinary Medicine. Dorothy Udall, who had graduated from Cornell University and studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, taught Interior Design in what, in the 1950s, the University called its "Home Economics Department". In 1965 the Udalls moved to Kenya for Rob Udall to teach at the University of Nairobi. The move forced Dorothy to take a professional hiatus because American wives were not expected to obtain jobs there. Combining her background in art and design with her desire to provide work for some of the many women from rural areas seeking employment in Nairobi, Dorothy Udall opened a small textile production company, which she dubbed "Maridadi" after the Swahili word meaning "pretty" or "fancy". Maridadi's first textiles were produced as batiks, using a hand-applied wax-resist method, but Udall soon switched to silk screen printing, which she found much more time efficient. At first, Dorothy Udall developed all the company's patterns; her colors and designs arose out of the local milieu: the region's traditional arts, the local wildlife, the local people, and even typical household objects. When the Udalls returned to Fort Collins at the end of the 1960s the original Maridadi passed into other hands. However, Dorothy soon opened Maridadi West, a small textile printing factory on the outskirts of town. For her American designs Dorothy Udall turned to sources native to this continent: the local flora and landscapes, patterns from the Pueblo cultures of the Rio Grande Valley, Mimbres pottery designs, and the architecture of Colorado's ancient Pueblo dwellings.

Biographical Information

Isaac Hollister Hall, Class of 1859, A.M. (1862), Ph.D. (1876), L.H.D., ADP, Phi Beta Kappa '90, lawyer, editor. Died NYC 1896. Isaac Hollister Hall (December 12, 1837 - July 2, 1896), American Orientalist, was born in Norwalk, Connecticut. He graduated at Hamilton College in 1859, was a tutor there in 1859-1863, graduated at the Columbia Law School in 1865, practised law in New York City until 1875, and in 1875-1877 taught in the Syrian Protestant College at Beirut, where he discovered a valuable Syriac manuscript of the Philoxenian version of a large part of the New Testament, which he published in part in facsimile in 1884. He worked with General di Cesnola in classifying the famous Cypriote collection in the Metropolitan Museum of New York City, and was a curator of that museum from 1885 until his death in Mount Vernon, New York, on the 2nd of July 1896. He was an eminent authority on Oriental inscriptions. Following the scanty clues given by George Smith and Samuel Birch, and working on the data furnished by the di Cesnola collection, he succeeded about 1874 in deciphering an entire Cypriote inscription, and in establishing the Hellenic character of the dialect and the syllabic nature of the script. His work in Cypriote epigraphy is described in his articles in Scribner's Magazine, vol. 20 (June, f 880), pp. 205-211 and in the Journal of the American Oriental Society, vol. 10, No. 2 (1880), pp. 201-218. He published in facsimile the Antilegomena epistles (1886), which he deciphered from the WF Williams's manuscript, and edited A Critical Bibliography of the Greek New Testament as Published in America (1884).
