Abstract

Late appointments to the faculty, purchases of classroom furniture and the boarding arrangements at Cascadilla Hall crowded the weeks before the opening of the university. In addition to student applications there were letters from the book dealer, Henry Stevens, and educator William Watts Folwell. After the inauguration October 7th, the papers contain an increasing flow of inquiries, building plans and faculty problems.. The day-to-day operation of the university involved teachers' complaints about classroom facilities, housing for their families and the inadequacy of their salaries. The general unrest is climaxed by a petition to the trustees in February for salary adjustment. There is correspondence with the non-resident lecturers Louis Agassiz, Curtis and James Russell Lowell, who found themselves pressed for time and had to be tactfully encouraged to fulfill their agreements.
