Abstract:

Early College records contained in ten numbered bound volumes. College books nos. 1 to 6 include Corporation minutes and other records. The numbering system was begun by President Benjamin Wadsworth, who assigned the nos. and indexed books 1-6.

College book no. 1, 1639-1795, referred to as the Long college book, contains a list of graduates, College laws of 1734, library rules and regulations and a catalog of books, the College charter of 1650, as well as Corporation minutes and other records.

College book no. 3, 1636-1779, was begun by Treasurer Thomas Danforth, and includes much of the material in books 1 and 2, as well as other records that have been lost. Subsequent to 1686 it contains inventories and plans of college estates entered by President Wadsworth and Holyoke.

College book no. 4, 1686-1750, includes the Act of Incorporation of Harvard College, 1692, and Corporation records dating mainly from 1692 to 1708, with a few for 1686 to 1791, entered by President John Leverett.

College book no. 6, 1727-1779 and 1790, known as the Hollis book, was begun by Wadsworth to preserve a record of Hollis donations and scholars, 1719-1737.

College books nos. 7 to 10, 1750-1827, contain only Corporation records.
