Biographical / Historical

Paul Revere Frothingham (1864-1926) graduated from Harvard College in 1886 with an AM degree and in 1889 with an STB degree. He served as pastor of the First Congregational Society of New Bedford, Massachusetts, from 1889 to 1900 and the Arlington Street Church (Unitarian) in Boston from 1900 to 1926. Rev. Frothingham served as a preacher of Harvard for sixteen years and served the school as an overseer from 1904 to 1910, and again from 1918 to 1924. His wife, Anna Clapp Frothingham, established the Harvard College scholarship bearing his name in 1940 "to be held as a fund in memory of my late husband." The scholarship is awarded annually to "that member of the senior class in Harvard College who...best exemplifies the qualities of excellent scholarship, manliness [character], and effective support of the best interests of Harvard University."
