Abstract: Torrey was appointed professor of Greek and Latin at UVM in 1827. In 1842, after the death of James Marsh, he became professor of moral philosophy. He served as President of the University from 1862-1866. The ecords document a number of historically important developments at the university, including the effort to raise funds in support of it. The correspondence files contain letters over the duaration of Torrey's long association with the university as faculty and then president. Much of this collection is not related to Torrey's tenure at the University of Vermont as professor and president, but to his personal life.
