Papers by John Wingate Thornton( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Thornton, born in Saco, Maine, graduated in 1840 from the Harvard Law School and subsequently practiced in his profession from offices on Court St., Boston. He was a leading antiquary and genealogist of his day, a founder of the New England Historic Genealogical Society (1844) and the Prince Society (1858). He authored many books and pamphlets in a restless spirit of historical inquiry. The collection consists of his "quaintly formal" journal for 1851-1, a bound volume holding his "fervid and didactic" letters to his children Bessie and Harry and folders containing fragments of his journals for 1861-75, letters rec'd (1861-76) family photographs and misc. printed matter. Sometime after the journals were written, pasted-in items were cut out, so as to render the text virtually unreadable for the years 1861-75. The papers present a view of an active and intelligent gentleman of the mid-19th c., as curious about the past as he was fascinated by current events in his home town. Thornton was a keen observer, and this is an interesting record
