Norton, Charles Eliot 1827- Educator; born in Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 16, 1827; graduated at Harvard College in 1846, and entered mercantile business in Boston. In 1849 he shipped as supercargo for an East Indian voyage; and subsequently made several tours in Europe. In 1874 he was chosen Professor of the History of Art at Harvard College, and held that post till 1898, when he resigned on account of age. He is well known as an authority on art and as a Dante scholar. In 1862-68 he was editor of the North American review. He has edited the Letters of James Russell Lowell; Writings of George William Curtis; Correspondence of Carlyle and Emerson, and of Goethe and Carlyle; Letters of Thomas Carlyle; Historical studies of Church building in the Middle ages, etc.

, both of his sons having contributed to military history, while his oldest daughter has written both poetry and fiction under the name of E. Foxton. Professor Charles Eliot Norton, in the same way, has prolonged and enhanced the literary eminence of his name, as did Professor F. H. Hedge and Tutor William Everett. Other instanis more curious than the impression held by some of Lowell's English friends — even, it is said, that most intimate friend to whom his letters are dedicated by Mr. Norton--that the Hosea Biglow dialect was that of Lowell's father, family, and personal circle. All who know anything of the period know that the speech of educated fliterary circle of which Longfellow was the centre; and the centre of the Cambridge circle, so far as the little town itself was concerned, he surely was. Professor Norton has left on record the perfect frankness with which Lowell and himself criticised the final revision of Longfellow's Dante, with a freedom that was made perf

he 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 Norto55; H. E. Scudder, 196; O. W. Holmes, 18I; G. P. Lathrop, 168; W. F. Apthorp, 134; Henry James, Jr., 134; J. R. Lowell, 132; T. W.

age was nearly reached; and even on Brattle Street the south side was houseless until the old Vassall House blocked the way. It was the region not merely, as Professor Norton says, of pasture land or mowing which afforded good roaming ground for schoolboys, but also one where orchards bore that rather tart fruit which schoolboys iswold, p. 257. it would appear that he was in charge of it in January, 1850, which must have been about the time of this letter. There is not, I think, in all Mr. Norton's delightful collection of Lowell's correspondence anything quite so thoroughly local, or giving so close a glimpse of Old Cambridge. The editor's preface is aghly, to respect crockery and varnish, and to cultivate self-reliance. The copious letters written by Lowell to Charles F. Briggs, and printed in full by Professor Norton, recall to me the answer of the once noted New York author, Henry T. Tuckerman, when I asked him how it was that Lowell gained applause so easily, while so m

the strongest man in the village, who kept the wood-yard just across Brighton Bridge. In my memoirs of Margaret Fuller Ossoli I have attempted to sketch the cultivated women who lived in Cambridge and were a controlling power. Mrs. Farrar, Mrs. Norton, Mrs. Howe, Mrs. King, and others,—of whom Miss Fuller herself was the representative in the next generation,—and whom I was accustomed to seeing treated with respect by educated men, although these ladies themselves had never passed through crpillars, through what is now Ward Four. There were also some well-preserved revolutionary fortifications,—one remarkably fine one on what is now Putnam Avenue,—but these have now unfortunately vanished. There were ample woods for wildflowers,— Norton's woods and Palfrey's woods especially,—and I have deposited at the Botanical Garden my early botanical notebooks, showing what rare wild-flowers, such as the cardinal flower, the fringed gentian, and the gaudy rhexia, once grew within the t

In the fall of 1883, at the suggestion of Professor Child, Professor Norton, and others interested in the establishment in Cambridge of a school for boys which should effectively meet the demands of the new education, the Browne and Nichols School was founded at No. 11 Appian Way. The principals had graduated from Hhe genial Holmes, and the broad-minded Lowell. Thus an atmosphere is created which is calculated to sustain the studious spirit. Fitting School for boys and girls. In 1879, Miss K. V. Smith was encouraged by Ezra Abbot, John Fiske, Charles Eliot Norton, and Francis J. Child to open a private school for boys and girls at 16 Ash Street. It was removed the next year to 5 Phillips Place, and again changed to 54 Garden Street, and in 1887 to its present high and sunny locality at 13 Buckingha

So great is the interest in the Prospect Union on the part of the university that there is no difficulty in finding a plenty of college men to lend their aid, and these students are among the men of highest rank in scholarship and of prominence in other respects in the university. The weekly meeting of the Union is held on Wednesday evening. At this time there is usually a lecture, often by some member of the Harvard Faculty. Lectures have been delivered by President Eliot, Professors Charles Eliot Norton, Francis G. Peabody, W. W. Goodwin, F. W. Taussig, A. B. Hart, G. H. Palmer, and many other members of the Harvard Faculty; also by Colonel Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Rt. Rev. William Lawrence, Mr. John Graham Brooks, Rt. Rev. J. H.
