Description

Subseries 10C: Subject Files, 1769-1920 [bulk: 1820-1869], contains a variety of papers that are grouped by subject and then arranged alphabetically. Beam's index is indispensable for quickly accessing topics in this subseries, which was originally entitled Papers. There are 36 categories listed in Beam's index and most contain descriptions. The categories range from college associations, including alumni associations, to religious, educational, and prison reform associations. In addition, the Subject Files house a genealogy of the Maclean and Bainbridge families and personal letters between relatives and friends of John Maclean. Of note in the family letters section, Box 28, Folder 3, is a letter of advice dated 1812 from John Maclean, Sr. to his son, John. There are a number of love letters from John's brother, George, to his third wife, Caroline (Carrie) Fitch Maclean. Presidential reports, student finances, and trustee minutes, the last of which is further organized by topic, comprise the remainder of this subseries. For a detailed listing of the Subject Files, please refer to the index in Box 6, Folder 3 of this subseries.
