This is a series of three articles written by Prof. A. L. Nelson which appeared in the Ring-tum Phi (the student newspaper) in the issues for February 4, 11, and 18 of 1899. Nelson writes about his experiences at Washington College from his matriculation in 1846 through his tenure as a professor -- a period of 60 years. He provides a unique perspective on the school and the changes it sustained before, during and after the presidency of Robert E. Lee.These newspaper clippings were a portion of the many items in this collection which were inserted into the ledger book journal used by the Nelson family. Inserted items included math problems and solutions, genealogy notes and diagrams, and correspondence.
