Abstract:

This collection, which is primarily correspondence, contains both hand- and type-written letters written to and by George C. Chase. The letters concern matters of both a business and personal nature - the Andrew Carnegie subscriptions, the hazing of freshmen, amending the College charter, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, efforts to obtain a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, Chase's desire to retire and the plans for his successor, and letters written by Chase to his son, George M. Chase. Also included are many letters from people who supported the work of the College as well as letters of introduction written on behalf of Chase to help him in the solicitation of funds. Among the correspondents in the collection are Robert Frost, Theodore Roosevelt, Booker T. Washington, Edward Everett Hale, Sarah Orne Jewett, Laura Elizabeth Howe Richards, William P. Frye, Percival Lowell, Wilfrid Laurier, William Howard Taft, Nelson Dingley, Jr., John Davis Long, and Benjamin E. Bates, the son of the college's namesake. There are also eight volumes of George Chase's diaries (1868-1913), a few newspaper clippings, and several notes and memos from Harry W. Rowe concerning his reminiscences of certain people and events mentioned in the collection.
