With exception of twenty-five letters (cor n-1-25) and a set of letters in the A section of
the papers the provenance of these papers is unclear. The first set of letters were
presented to the Warren Hunting Smith Library Archives in October 1988 by Mr. Toby
Jackson, Professor of History, University of Victoria, Victoria, B.C., Canada. For more
information about Benjamin Hale see the card catalogue in the Archives and for David
Bated Douglass see the first part of this collection, located before the A section in new
cold storage.

The remainder of the Collection may have been part of President Hale’s papers given to
Demarest library in 1942. This is reported in the Hobart Herald, 9 April 1942 with no donor
mentioned. President Hale was the father-in-law of Malcolm Douglass, who was the son of
David Bates Douglass. A large collection of books was given to the library, date unknown,
by Miss Edith Douglass and Mrs. Mary Rackliff, granddaughters of David Bates Douglass;
the papers may have belonged to that gift. Also in the collection are the letters of the Little
Family, Malcolm and Sarah Hale Douglas, and their children. Perhaps in the future a date of
when these papers were given will become evident

Little Family

George Little was the first English settler on Turkey Hill, in 1640. He died 1693-4 and the
farm was divided between his two sons Joseph and Moses (received the upper farm). Moses
passed the upper farm to his son Moses the 2nd. Moses Little 2nd left the farm to his son
Moses Little 3rd (May 8, 1724- May 27, 1798), who was an officer in the Revolutionary Army.
He commanded the Newbury regiment at the battle of Bunker Hill. When Colonel Moses
Little 3rd died his farm was given to his son Josiah Little born 1747. Most of his land in
Apthorp, N.H. and one-eighth of the Pejepscot patent. At his death in 1830 his son Josiah
Little 2nd received the farm. Josiah Little 2nd died in 1860 leaving a large estate to Christian
literacy and other benevolent uses and the farm to his nephew Josiah Little 3rd, who, dying
soon after, left the farm to his son Josiah Little 4th. Josiah Little 4th sold the farm in 1870 to
his cousin Josiah Little Hale a maternal grandchild of the first Josiah Little.

Josiah Little 1st (1747-1830) – Enlarged the original farm he inherited considerably. He was
an extensive landholder in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. He was a
talented businessman. Married Sarah (Toppan) Little of Newbury on March 23, 1770.
Josiah Little was influential in the public affairs of Newbury. He was a representative to the
General Court for 25years.

Josiah Little 2nd (1791-1860) – Graduated from Bowdoin College in 1811. He married
Sophronia (Balch) Little of Newbury Jan 24, 1814. He was an extensive landowner. He was
also a shareholder in Lewiston Falls Manufacturing Co. He was also treasurer of the
Lewiston Water Power Co.

Josiah Little 3rd ( ~1860) – The son of one of Josiah Little 2nd siblings. Lived in Portland
much of the time.

Josiah Little 4th (        )–

Edward Little (1773-1849)- President and stockholder in Lewiston Water Power Co.

Thomas Hale (1773-1836)- Married to Alice Little until her death in 1819. When he married
her sister Mary Little in 1822. Alice and Mary were the daughters of Josiah Little 1st, and
sisters of Josiah Little 2nd.

Col. Ebenezer Hale (1774-?)- Brother of Thomas Hale.

Josiah Little Hale (1803-1875)- Son of Thomas Hale and the maternal grandchild of
Josiah Little 1st.

Edward Hale (1805-?)- From Newbury, Vt. Son of Thomas Hale. Business man.

The Rev. Benjamin Hale, (1797-1863)(BH) President of Hobart College from 1836-1858,
had a long and distinguished career not only as educator-churchman, but also as an architect
and author. His papers and correspondence reflect these aspects, but also present a picture
of a devoted family man. He always signed each letter as your affectionate father or husband,
son or friend and later grandpapa. His concern for the well being of his family turns up in
phrases, such as: telling how to cure a sore throat, sending an article of clothing, toys for his
grandchildren, fatherly advice, religious ideas, and household affairs to help his wife. The
letters contain detailed answers to those sent to him and further very little about his duties as
president, although a few instances of College affairs do occur, as the letter of 15 June 1858
with a reference to Abner Jackson, the next president. He seemed to have the ability not to
confuse his roles as administrator, friend, or family member. His correspondence related to
the business of the College is in the Archives card catalogue. As the credit of saving the
young College from financial ruin goes to him, keeping the problems from his
correspondence with his family seems all the more remarkable.

Two sets of his letters contain the accounts of his travels: to St. Croix in 1836 and to Europe
in 1854. Throughout the correspondence BH’s travels to Boston, New York, Windsor
(where his daughter Sarah lived) and other places give a picture of a well-traveled person.

Many of the letters have several writers but have Hale as the main correspondent.

Abbreviations: Benjamin Hale (BH), his wife Mary Caroline King Hale (MCKH)
               His daughter Sarah Elizabeth Hale (SEDDY nickname) whose
                abbreviation changes later to SED after she marries Malcolm
               Douglass (MD), Son Benjamin Hale, Jr. (BHjr), son Moses Hale (MH).

The journals provide information about BH’s life as president and as churchman.

         Mary Caroline Alsop King was born in Saco, ME January 27, 1799. She was the
daughter of the Honorable Cyrus King and Hannah (Storer) King. (Alsop must have been
another family name). Her correspondence indicates that she had three sisters, Elizabeth,
Ann and Hannah. The letters mentioned the marriage of two of her sisters, Ann and
Hannah. In 1846 Hannah married a Russell H. Heywood and was then referred to as
Hannah King Heywood. Ann may have been married in the 1830s and was married to a
Willy Bridge, and was then referred to as A.K. Bridge. There was no indication that
Elizabeth was married, so she continued to go by Elizabeth P. King or Eliza. Mary Caroline
entered to Douglass-Hale family in 1823, when she married Rev. Benjamin Hale April 9. At
this point she was referred to as Mary Caroline Hale or MCH. They first lived together in
Gardiner, Maine where they had their first child, Caroline Alice Hale, on August 16, 1826.
They then moved to Saco, Maine where they had their second child, Benjamin Hale Jr. who
was born on October 31, 1827. Proceeding the births of these two children they moved to
Hanover, New Hampshire, where they had three more children, Mary King Hale (April 3,
1830), Sarah Elizabeth Hale (July 3, 1832) and Thomas Hale (July 11, 1834). Before the birth
of their sixth child, one of their daughters, Caroline died sadly at age 9. A year later, the
Hales were blessed with another child, Cyrus King Hale (March 17, 1838). But soon after
his birth they suffered the loss of another beloved daughter, Mary, who died at age 8 in
1938. At this point the Hales had been living in Geneva, New York, since 1836, where
Benjamin Hale served as the president of Hobart College. Their seventh child, Josiah Little
Hale, was also born in Geneva April 1, 1841. After living in Geneva for nearly three
decades, BH became ill and he and MCH moved to Newburyport, Massachusetts between
June and August of 1859.

        In 1852 Mary C. Hale’s daughter Sarah Elizabeth Hale married Malcolm Douglass.
Rev. Malcolm Douglass was the son of David Bates Douglass. After her marriage she was
then referred to as Sarah Hale Douglass or Sarah Elizabeth Douglass.

         Most of Mary C. Hale’s correspondence was with her sisters, her children and her
husband Benjamin. Typical writings included those on her or other family members’ health,
visiting family members, weddings, and deaths. Most of the letters are written about typical
daily events or local happenings.

       Some letters of interest include:
              Sept 9, 1861 – mentions the Civil War and a family member who was
              July 1, 1853, July 27, 1861 and ND from Envelope 4 all indicate Hobart
              August 29, 1863 – mentions the death of Benjamin Hale
              Misc – receipts and pamphlets from Hobart events
Abbreviations of names:
      Mary Caroline Hale: MCH, MCKH, MCK, Caroline, Mary C. Hale
      Elizabeth P. King: Eliza, EPK
      Ann King Bridge: Ann, A.K. Bridge
      Ward (sister of MCH) – C.S. Ward or Olive Ward
      MCH’s mother: Grandmother King
      Sarah Elizabeth Hale Douglass: S.E.H., SED, SHD, Seddy, Sally
      Benjamin Hale: BH
Sarah Hale Douglass
        Sarah Elizabeth Hale was born in Hanover, New Hampshire on July 3, 1832, to
Benjamin Hale Sr. and Mary Caroline Hale. She lived in Hanover with her parents until
approximately 1836, when they moved to Geneva, New York. There her father, Benjamin
Hale, presided as president of Hobart College. While living in Geneva she met her future
husband, Malcolm Douglass, who was the son of David Bates Douglass. Sarah and Malcolm
eventually married in 1852, at which point Sarah was referred to as Sarah Hale Douglass.
Due to Malcolm’s profession as an Episcopalian Minister, he and Sarah were often traveling
at the beginning of their marriage. In 1859, Malcolm committed to St. Paul’s Church in
Windsor, Vermont, where he and Sarah then moved. Together, Sarah and Malcolm had five
children, Mary Caroline, Benjamin Hale, David Bates, Malcolm Jr., and Andrew Ellicott.
Sarah lived with her children and husband in Windsor, but her husband frequently traveled.
They lived in Windsor until the 1880s, at which point the children had moved out and Sarah
and Malcolm moved to Massachusetts. First moving to Plymouth and then East Wareham,
MA, Malcolm was ill and then died in 1887, in East Wareham. Sarah continued to live in
Massachusetts after Malcolm’s death, and may have lived with various family members until
her death in 1913. She lived to be 81 years old.

       Most of Sarah’s letters were from family members, ranging from various generations.
Her most frequent letters were from all of her aunts, her siblings and siblings-in-law, her
husband, and eventually her children. The content of the letters consisted of family
happenings and news, health, deaths and occasionally current events and information about
Hobart. Due to Malcolm’s frequent mobilization, Sarah received many letters from him
concerning his travels and work. She also received regular letters from her father, Benjamin

Letters of interest:

        June 23, 1863 – mentions commencement and Benjamin Hale
        1863 – letters concerning Benjamin Hale’s death

                came form letters of Benjamin Hale
        Envelope 23 – an article about a Hobart President, Rev. James Kent Stone D.D.

This collection includes the papers of David Bates Douglass, Malcolm Douglass, Sarah Hale
Douglass, Josiah Little family, Benjamin Hale and their children.

Correspondence comprises the major portion of the A collection. However, the journals,
scrapbooks, sketchbooks and one music book provide interesting insights into this more
than one hundred-year family history.

The earliest date – 1788 – is found in the Little Family portion of the collection while the
latest date – 19ll – occurs in the scrapbook in the last box and refers to Andrew Douglass,
Great-grandson of David Bates Douglass.

I.     Correspondence
              The major part of this collection consists of letters from family members
              and friends, very little directly relating to Hobart College.
II.    Business, Property Transactions
              While some family letters do exist in the Little papers, most of the Little
              Family items consist of property, business and money matters.

III.   Journals, Diaries Addresses
               Many family members kept diaries, however, those of Benjamin Hale
               have the most relevance to the history of Hobart College.

IV.    Scrapbooks.
              The interest of one of the scrapbooks lies in the fact that David Bates
              Douglass began it and several succeeding generations added to it. A few
              pages have relevance to Geneva and Hobart College. A number of the pages
              have sketches by various family members.

V.     Ephemera

VI.    Photographs
              Very few photographs exist in this collection; those that do have been left in
              the places in the collection where they were found.
