SUMMARY:
Thomas Hill (1818-1891) was President of Harvard University from October 6, 1862 to September 30, 1868. He was also a Unitarian minister, mathematician, scientist, educator, and Harvard University lecturer.

The Papers of Thomas Hill document both his personal and professional activities for the length of his career. The biographical materials, non-Harvard University correspondence, and scrapbook materials are substantial and examine Hill’s life, particularly his relationship with his family, from his birth until his death. The Harvard University correspondence found in these papers documents Hill’s administration of Harvard University as president. Finally, the writings, sermons, lectures, and inventions in these papers illustrate Hill’s diverse and far-ranging intellectual and philosophical interests.
