Lecture notes collection, 1817-1969, bulk 1877-1913

Series I. Benjamin Franklin Miller, 1817-1847

The papers consist of the Miller's undated lecture notes in bound notebook format, copies of poems and translations, a travel notebook, miscellaneous notes, and a few letters. The lecture notes represent the lectures of a number of early nineteenth century professors, including Nathaniel Fish and Chancellor Kent (law), but not all professors were identified. The 1817 and 1847 materials may be those of family members.
