The Prospect Union. Rev. Robert E. Ely, President. The object of the Prospect Union is to bring as many as possible of the advantages of Harvard University within the reach of workingmen through evening classes taught by Harvard students, and through lectures by members of the Harvard Faculty and other persons. There is in Cambridge, particularly in Cambridgeport, a large population of wage-earners. In Cambridge reside also a large number of Harvard students. Students were formerly often regarded with unfriendliness by workingmen, and the life of the average wage-earner was quite outside the knowledge of the average Harvard student. The Prospect Union has attempted to bring students and wage-earners into friendly relations, and to get them to understand and to help each other. The Union was named from the Prospect House Building on Massachusetts Avenue near Central Square. In this building the Union began its work in January, 1891, under the leadership of Rev. Robert E.
