Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 1: old Cambridge (search)
e, about the same time (18 10), became Professor of Logic and Metaphysics, and he furnished what was for many years the standard American textbook on the former subject. A few years more brought to Cambridge (between 1811 and 1822) a group of men at that time unequalled in this country as regarded general cultivation and the literary spirit,--Andrews Norton, Edward Everett, Joseph Green Cogswell, George Ticknor, Washington Allston, Jared Sparks, Edward T. Channing, Richard H. Dana, and George Bancroft. Most of them were connected with the University, the rest were resident in Cambridge, but all had their distinct influence on the atmosphere in which the Cambridge authors grew. Professor Edward T. Channing especially-grand-uncle of the present Professor of similar name — probably trained as many conspicuous authors as all other American instructors put together. It has also an important bearing on the present volume when we observe that the effect of all this influence was to cr

under the editorship of Cambridge men. After the first editor, William Tudor, there came a long line of Cambridge successors — Willard Phillips, Edward Tyrrel Channing, Edward Everett, Jared Sparks, John Gorham Palfrey, Francis Bowen, and, after some interval, James Russell Lowell and Charles Eliot Norton. The list of chief contributors to the first forty volumes of the Review, as appears from the Index published in 1878, would include, in addition to those already given, C. C. Felton, George Bancroft, H. W. Longfellow, and the elder Norton —— all Harvard instructors. Its connection with Cambridge was therefore well defined and unquestionable. Judge Story, then head of the Harvard Law School, who had for many years a higher foreign reputation than any other American author, thus wrote in 1819 to Sir William Scott: So great is the call for talents of all sorts in the active use of professional and other business in America, that few of our ablest men have leisure to devote exclus<

men, but consents to his son's going to Cambridge for a year at the curiously moderate expense of $I 84. Meanwhile the plan of sending him to Europe to prepare for his college professorship superseded all this, and he left home in April, 1826, for New York, where he was to take the ship for Paris. On the way he dined with George Ticknor in Boston, heard Dr. Channing preach, met Rev. Charles Lowell, and on Monday went to Cambridge and saw President Kirkland. At Northampton he met Messrs. George Bancroft and J. G. Cogswell, who gave him letters to European notabilities and advised a year's residence at Gottingen. His mother wrote to him, I will not say how much we miss your elastic step, your cheerful voice, your melodious flute. His father wrote, In all your ways remember the God by whose power you were created, by whose goodness you are sustained and protected. It all seems more like the anxious departure from home of one of Goethe's or Jean Paul's youthful wanderers than like
