Collection
Kingsley family
The collection is composed of family correspondence, diaries, and legal, financial, and professional papers which document the lives of several members of the Kingsley family or of the related Coit, Gilman, Upham, and Farnam families. One third of the collection concerns James Luce Kingsley, his tenure on the Yale faculty, and his classical and historical scholarship. Another third of the collection relates to the life and work of William Lathrop Kingsley, especially his editorship of the New Englander and his service to Yale College and the Class of 1843. The remaining third of the collection recounts the lives of family members in Norwich, Connecticut; Cleveland, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Canandaigua, New York; and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, during the first half of the nineteenth century. The European and world travels of family members and the life of the Upham family during the War of 1812 are highlighted in the collection.
