c1873 Catalog of New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts, at Hanover, New Hampshire


Circa 1873 catalog of New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts, located at Hanover, New Hampshire and associated with Dartmouth College.


The catalog is undated but contains a number of clues pointing to a date in the early 1870s:
  • One of the instructors named in the catalog was Ezekiel Webster Dimona, Professor of General and Agriculture Chemistry and considered the father of the college; he taught from the opening year of 1868 until his death in 1876
  • The catalog contains an engraving of Culver Hall, which was built in 1871
  • The text mentions a building, Conant Hall, that is soon to be erected.  Conant Hall opened in 1874.
Sadly, the catalog does not list names of students, but it does list the faculty on the front cover and the trustees on the back cover.   I've provided links to their names; take what you find with a grain of salt.  If you have additional information, please leave a comment. 

Listed as faculty on the page at top:




Trustees mentioned on the back cover, above:


Hanover, New Hampshire
