Notes regarding the disciplinary case of Abner Johnson Leavenworth, 1822
|Title||Notes regarding the disciplinary case of Abner Johnson Leavenworth, 1822|
|Abstract||Unattributed notes regarding the disciplinary case of Collegiate Institution student Abner Johnson Leavenworth. The document states that Leavenworth is accused slandering an officer of the Institution, namely the Tutor Field (Lucius Field), and that Leavenworth had the petition against Field written by one of the Junior Class. Leavenworth is also accused of dressing in a frock with a party of others with whom he was the leader and engaging in general conduct indicative of a spirit of insubordination. The document states that Leavenworth expressed himself against Field but then falsely denied that he had said anything on the subject. The document appears to be incomplete.|
This item is undated. The year provided is drawn from the year Lucius Field was a tutor at the Collegiate Institution and the student petition was made against him.
Amherst College was conceived out of the previously existing Amherst Academy and was founded in 1821 as the Collegiate Institution. From 1821-1825 the College was known primarily as the Collegiate Institution or the Amherst Institution. In 1825 the institution was granted charter by the Massachusetts State Legislature and was thereafter known as Amherst College.
