Biographical Information

After graduating from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1894, the class of that year continued to stay in touch. In particular, there was a continual correspondence between Harle W. Hathaway and Delavan L. Pierson, who were both class officers. The two went on to plan the class fortieth and fiftieth reunions, both of which were celebrated at the Peacock Inn in Princeton. The collection also contains correspondence with other class members concerning these reunions and requests for donations as well as class lists, a prayer list, reunion minutes, and notes on the deaths of class members. For more information on individual class members, consult Folder 1:9 Prayer list and brief historical record of the Class of 1894 Princeton Seminary.
