Scope and Content

The Levi K. Fuller papers consist of correspondence chiefly between Charles A. Reese, Secretary of the Vermont Academy, and Mr. Fuller, serving as trustee to the school. Nothing at all is written by Fuller. The papers are in strict chronological order affording the reader an almost daily tabulation of the events at the school from personnel recruitment to advertising. Additionally, there are some congratulatory telegrams, statements and letters regarding the sale of the Alexander Farm and proposed changes in the curriculum, a cross-section of a Vermont boarding school in the 19th century.
