On This Day
1829 — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Class of 1825, writes to the president of Bowdoin, William Allen, informing him he must turn down the offer of a professorship because the $600 salary is "disproportionate to the duties required.” The trustees raise his salary to $800 with an additional $100 to serve as the College's librarian, a post that required one hour of work per day, and he accepts the offer.
