Abstract

Contributions to encyclopedias and other works of multiple authorship, including works that were apparently never published. The series includes five forewords to books by other authors, and student papers arranged in four groups: papers from Fisk (ca.1888), papers from Harvard (1888-1891), student papers from the 1890s on economics and politics, and "Sketches, 1889-1896," which includes some travel notes, journals, notes on birthday celebrations, and some creative writing.
