Abstract: Letters written by Harvard Law School student, Albert F. Burt, class of 1914. Recipients include his father, mother and two brothers. The subject matter includes life at the Law School, both social and acedemic, as well as living in Cambridge.
Little is known about Albert F. Burt. He was born in Middlebury Vermont where his father was a professor. In submissions to the Class Reports of 1920 and 1929 he reports working for the American Trust Co. in St. Louis, Missouri. The 1953 and 1963 Law School Alumni Directories list him living in Middle Grove, N.Y. but no occupation is mentioned. The 1973 directory lists him as living in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.. His date of death is unknown.
The 70 documents that make up the Albert F. Burt Letters span the years 1911-1913. The letters are all handwritten. Recipients include his father, mother and two brothers.Topics range from the mundane such as the weather and trips into Boston to descriptions of life at the Harvard Law School.
