Biographical Note

Frederick Augustus Porter Barnard joined the faculty of the University of Alabama in 1838 in the Departments of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy. He remained in Alabama until 1854, when he accepted a position as a Professor of Mathematics, Astronomy, and Civil Engineering at the University of Mississippi. Two years later, he became President of the University of Mississippi. Shortly after the Civil War erupted, Barnard (and others) resigned their positions and the university closed for four years. Barnard assumed the presidency of Columbia University in New York in 1864 and remained there until his death in 1889.


Scope and Content Note

This collection consists largely of correspondence between F.A.P. Barnard and his brother, John Gross Barnard, and between F.A.P. Barnard and E.W. Hilgard during the years 1834-1886. Hilgard was a chemist at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. and was appointed state geologist of Mississippi in 1855. His office was located on the University of Mississippi campus. In 1868, Hilgard was appointed Professor of Chemistry at the University. The collection also includes letters from Jacob Thompson, an original member of the Board of Trustees of The University of Mississippi, and others.
