Roswell Parish papers

Call Number: MS 1020
Scope and Contents
The Roswell Parish Papers fall into three groups: Yale College materials, Civil War materials, and general materials. The Yale materials consist of letters from College administrators about Parish's academic standing, notices of fraternities, and five letters from Walter Camp concerning football. The Civil War materials are largely letters of introduction which Parish obtained to facilitate conveying his brother, Burleigh, home after he had been wounded in the Battle of Antietam, with some other related materials. Finally, the general materials contain letters and notices about social events, a letter from Maxfield Parrish on Par(r)ish family genealogy, and a selection of autographs cut from letters and documents. Included among the signers are E. E. Hale, Alvan G. Clark, John T. Morse, N. R. Huntington, Francis A. Walker, Edward H. Hall, Timothy Dwight, and E. C. Williams.
