During our MAWG* this afternoon, Adam, Lauren, and Peter gave us their preliminary thesis ideas, and the discussion made me want to see what else I could find on Thoreau’s writing education at Harvard (since that’s one of my thesis ideas). Found these two.
Adams, Raymond. “Thoreau at Harvard: Some Unpublished Records.” New England Quarterly. 13 (March 1940): 24-33.
McGill, Frederick T. “Thoreau and College Discipline.” The New England Quarterly. 15.2 (June 1942): 349-353.
Hmm, I’m pretty sure we have extant a few of Thoreau’s college essays. Don’t we?
Meanwhile, gotta get back to revising.
