Identifier: 003349

Description

The records of the Muskequewit Boat Club contain the Constitution of the club as well as meeting minutes. Original members of the club, whose meetings were to be kept secret, were David A. Caldwell (1839-1886), Edward Savage (1840-1913), Cecil F.P. Bancroft (1839-1901), Frederick Chase (1840-1890) and William Augustus Thompson (1838-1875), all members of the Dartmouth College Class of 1860. Matters discussed in the minutes include election of officers, purchasing, naming, painting and fixing of the boat, uniforms and the Boat House. The notebook also includes a brief account of the provenance of the boat ("Nina) and very brief bio blurbs of the founding members. A financial account is also included.
