Burrage, Ernest D. Burton, William N. Clarke, William H.P. Faunce, Shailer Mathews, George E. Merrill, George W. Northrup, Edwards A. Park, George D. B. Pepper, Henry E. Robins, Ezekiel G. Robinson, Artemus W. Sawyer, Augustus H. Strong, and Henry G. Weston. A more detailed listing and name index for the correspondence are included in the original finding aid for the collection, which is linked to from https://web.library.yale.edu/divinity/special-collections/andover-newton.
The documents in Series VIII, Association Items, are not in Hovey's hand; and their relation to other material in the collection is unclear. This series includes letters and literary manuscripts.
