Scope and Contents

Francis Wayland was a Baptist clergyman and the pastor of First Baptist Church, Boston from 1821-1826. In 1825 he participated in the founding of Newton Theological Institution (became Andover Newton), for the training of pastors for American Baptist Churches. He was a professor at Union College in the 1826/1827 school year, and the fourth president of Brown University, from1827-1855.
He was an early advocate of the temperance and anti-slavery causes, for many years was "inspector of the state prison and Providence county jail," president of the Prison Discipline Society, and active in prison reform and local charities. He was one of the "law and order" leaders during the "Dorr Rebellion" of 1842, and was called "the first citizen of Rhode Island." Wayland was a long time vocal advocate for libraries.
The collection consists of his correspondence from 1820-1865 and the Wayland family autograph collection. The original papers, held at Brown University, are contained in 14 boxes, and are preserved in this edition of 216 microfiche.
