Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Olde Cambridge, Chapter 1: old Cambridge (search)
extbook 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 thteaching and more learning in our American Cambridge than there is in both the English universities together, thoa between them they have four times our number of students. Harvard Graduates' Magazine, September, 1897, p. 16. Yet he had, with Cogswell and Ticknor, written letter after letter to show the immeasurable superiority of Gottingen to the little American institution; and his low estimate of the English universities as they were in 1818 is confirmed by those who teach in them to-day.

s 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 Meanwhile the plan of sending him to Europe to prepare for his college professorship superseded all this, and he left home in April, 1826, for New York, where he was to take the ship for Paris.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 the easy manner in which

He was in 1816 a student at Gottingen with Edward Everett and George Ticknor; in 1823, with George Bancroft, established the Round Hill Schoothe Law of Nations, which will make three volumes. He has already published a very good abridgment of International Law, with which perhaps you are acquainted. Cogswell has come abroad again; he is at Dresden now. His mission was two-fold; to establish a grandson of Astor at one of the German universities, and to purchase the Boding a public library in New York, and this library was to be the basis of it; but unfortunately it is already under the hammer in Paris, selling piece-meal, and Cogswell has abandoned the purchase. He has written to New York for authority to make discretionary purchases in other directions; if he does not have this, he will not

41:— Felton and Longfellow arrived yesterday. I have had some pleasant dinners, seen some handsome women, and been to two balls. I like Halleck very much; have met him twice at dinner. He is clever, and much to the point in conversation. Cogswell inquired after you. He is as gay as ever. I met Theodore Sedgwick at dinner at the Coldens' (Mrs. Jeffrey's family). He appeared admirably. He is the cleverest and most gentlemanly person I have seen in New York, To Dr. Francis Lieber.nguine that we shall defeat the enemy. I have been occupied on these till three o'clock, when the office closed. The first day I dined with Samuel Ward, where we had an accidental, but very pleasant, reunion of several of our friends,—Lieber, Cogswell, Robert Walsh, Chevalier Nordine. On the next day I dined with the Misses Ward; last evening, with Mrs. Oakey; this morning I breakfasted with Sedgwick, to meet Bryant. I shall not get through my business till Monday: so, Tuesday morning, I sh

apparently, a satisfactory position, for although he dedicated a volume of poems to President Kirkland, with respect and affection, as to his early benefactor and friend, yet we have the testimony of George Ticknor (in Miss Ticknor's Life of J. G. Cogswell) that Bancroft was thwarted in every movement by the President. Mr. Ticknor was himself a professor in the college, and though his view may not have been dispassionate, he must have had the opportunity of knowledge. His statement is rendered more probable by the fact that he records a similar discontent in the case of Professor J. G. Cogswell, who was certainly a man of conciliatory temperament. By Ticknor's account, Mr. Cogswell, who had been arranging the Harvard College Library and preparing the catalogue, was quite unappreciated by the Corporation, and though Ticknor urged both him and Bancroft to stay, they were resolved to leave, even if their proposed school came to nothing. The school in question was the once famous Roun

lleges, while steadily maturing into universities all over the country, has made itself felt more and more obviously, especially as these colleges have with startling suddenness and comprehensiveness extended their privileges to women also, whether in the form of coeducation or of institutions for women only. For many years, the higher intellectual training of Americans was obtained almost entirely through periods of study in Europe, especially in Germany. Men, of whom Everett, Ticknor, Cogswell, and Bancroft were the pioneers, beginning in 1818 or thereabouts, discovered that Germany and not England must be made our national model in this higher education; and this discovery was strengthened by the number of German refugees, often highly trained men, who sought this country for political safety. The influence of German literature on the American mind was undoubtedly at its highest point half a century ago, and the passing away of the great group of German authors then visible was
