1. Edward Everett (1794–1865), who was later to play such an
important role in CFA’s Diary as Massachusetts Representative and Senator, as
President of Harvard College, and, more personally, as brother-in-law of CFA’s
future wife, was at this time a clergyman and a professor of Greek at Harvard,
regarded as “a young man of shining talents and of illustrious promise” (JQA, Diary, 13 Feb. 1820; DAB).
