HARVARD UNIVERSITY LIBRARY CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS 02138 University Archives May 11, 1972 Dear Mr. Homer: In reply to your letter of May 2, I am enclosing xeroxed copies of an autobiographical and biographical sketch of Hamilton Easter Field, taken from the Twenty-fifth and Fiftieth Reports of the Harvard Class of 1897. He entered Harvard in 1893 as a memher of the class of 1897 but remained only one year. I am unable to provide you with much information at all on Paul Burty Haviland. He received a Bachelor des Lettres- Philosophic degree from the University of Paris in 1898. He was enrolled in the Graduate School at Harvard in 1899-1900, and in the College in 1900-19O1 and received an A.B. degree in 1901. Ihe published reports of the Class of 1901 give little information on Haviland and what I give here is culled from several reports over the years. The first report (1903) gives his address as Barclay St., New York City, and as working for Haviland and Co., China Manufacturers. The second report (1907) gives his address as 25 Madison Ave., New York and working as manufacturer and importer at Barclay St. The third report (1911) says he had not been heard from but gives the following information—Born: Paris, France, June 17, 1880; school: Lycee Condorcet; degrees :A.B. 1901; business: manufacturer and artist; address: U5 Barclay St., New York City. The fourth report (1916) gives his parents names as Charles Edward Haviland, and Madeleine Burty. His occupation is given as manufacturer and his addresses as 1 rue des Argentier, Limoges, France (home), and (business) 39 Avenue Garibaldi, Limoges, France. He was said to be a member of The Players and the Grolier Club of New York City. The same business address is given in the sixth (1922) and seventh (1926) reports. In the ninth roport (l936) his address is given as kO Cours Albert, ler, Paris, France. In the eleventh report (1906) his address is given as la Mothe Yzeures s/ Creuse Indre and Loire, France. His occupation is given as farmer. The brief entry reads: 'A recent report from Haviland tells briefly of the fighting in 19^0, close by his farm in France, and that he and his family came through unscathed and are safe and sound. His son Jack is a private in anti aircraft artillery in the French Army.' e t Haviland died on December 21, 1950 at Indre and Loire, France. Sincerely yours. CAE/cJg end. Clark A.
