Identifier: MS-952

  • Staff Only


The letters of Zephaniah Swift Moore consist of correspondence from Moore to the Dartmouth Board of Trustees in his capacities as a professor of languages at the College and on behalf of Union Academy (later Kimball Union Academy) of which he was an executive committee member. Other letters testify to the academic standing and overall progress of individual students both during his Dartmouth tenure and as President of Williams College. Of particular note in this collection are two letters relating to Emory Washburn, a pupil of Moore’s at Dartmouth who followed him to Williams and went on to serve as Massachusetts’ 22nd governor (1854-1855).
