ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT: Organized alphabetically by name of correspondent. Letters within each name sequence arranged chronologically.

BIOGRAPHY: Philosopher and educator. Born Sept. 10, 1835, near North Killingly, Conn.; died Nov. 5 1909, in Providence, R.I. Resident of Concord, Mass., 1880-1889. Began teaching in St. Louis public schools in 1857. Became Assistant Superintendent of Schools in St. Louis in 1866, Superintendent in 1868. Student and scholar of German philosophy, particularly of Hegel. Founded Journal of Speculative Philosophy in 1867. In 1880, resigned position in St. Louis to assist Bronson Alcott and Franklin B. Sanborn in managing Concord School of Philosophy. In 1889, accepted position of United States Commissioner of Education; resigned in 1906. Assistant editor of Johnson’s New Universal Cyclopaedia; editor of Appleton’s International Education Series. Writings include: Introduction to the Study of Philosophy (1889); The Spiritual Sense of Dante’s Divinia Commedia (1889); Hegel’s Logic: A Book on the Genesis of the Categories of the Mind (1890); The Psychologic Foundations of Education (1898).

 SCOPE AND CONTENT: Includes letters to Harris from the following individuals: Louisa May Alcott (1885); Edward Waldo Emerson (1891-1907); E.J. Holtzbecker/Holzbecker (1882); Julia Ward Howe (1871-1904); Mary Peabody Mann (1883?); Elizabeth Palmer Peabody (1881-1888, plus one letter of uncertain authorship, possibly by E. P. Peabody); A.L. Pratt (1887); Anna Bronson Alcott Pratt (1888-1890); Franklin Benjamin Sanborn ([1864]-1909); Emily Talbot (1881). Some of the letters refer to the Concord School of Philosophy. Some of the Sanborn letters concern the American Social Science Association, of which both Sanborn and Harris were officers. The Concord authors provide a recurring theme in the Sanborn letters. Two letters (1866 Apr. 26 and 1894 Feb. 16) address Sanborn’s interest in prison reform. One of the Sanborn letters (1877 Dec. 7) refers to the death of Mrs. A.M. Alcott, several (1888) to Bronson Alcott’s impending and actual death. Bronson Alcott’s memorial service is discussed in the letter of June 4, 1888. Several of the Sanborn letters (1889-1890) refer to subscriptions for and work on a bust of Alcott; one letter (1890 Jan. 2) includes an enclosed ALS (1890 Jan. 7) from Daniel Chester French about the designing of the bust. Many letters from 1892 discuss A. Bronson Alcott: His Life and Philosophy (published 1893), which Harris and Sanborn wrote together. One letter (1894 Jan. 13) mentions William Ellery Channing’s poor health. The presidential candidates of 1896 are discussed in letters of that year. Many later letters contain opinions and references on topics including Goethe and philosophy. Letters from late 1899 discuss "The Alcott Centennial." The death of William Ellery Channing is mentioned in one letter (1901 Dec. 23), and subsequent letters mention Sanborn’s plans for a book on Channing. The later Sanborn letters include extensive enclosures. Some of the letters are accompanied by information provided by Edith Davidson Harris (W.T. Harris’s daughter).
