“Reminiscenses of College Life at Harvard.
BY ABIEL ABBOT LIVERMORE, A. M., S. T. D., PRESIDENT OK THE MEADEVILLE
THEOLOGICAL SCHOOL, MEADEVILLE, PA.
…I boarded with Dr. Ware, Senior, for a part of my undergraduate course and all of the divinity course, which I took from 1833 to 1836 at Cambridge. To him and his amiable family I owe a debt of gratitude that can never be discharged. While in the Divinity School, then conducted by Dr. Palfrey as Dean, and Henry Ware, and Henry Ware, Jr.. and Sidney Willard as Professors, I kept school in 20 Divinity Hall to pay my expenses, and had as pupils fitting for college George Ware and Thornton K. Ware, sons of Dr. Ware, Sen.; John F. W. Ware, son of Dr. Ware, Jun., afterwards pastor of Arlington Street Church; Charles Devens, distinguished general and judge; Arthur Devens, lawyer; Frank Rotch, N. Y. State Senator; Thomas Wentworth Higginson, philanthropist, poet and author; and at the private house Charlotte and Annie Ware, daughters of Dr. Henry Ware, Sen. This was good discipline, though hard, and gave me a useful review of my college studies and brought me into close contact with human nature. …”
