Collection material in English
Charles Ezra Cornell was the College Clerk during this period. He was, in fact, the first to serve in that office, and maintained
the position from 1897-1902. He was also the College Librarian, which was then a function of the College Clerk. In addition,
because of a requirement in the University Charter, he was a member of the University Board of Trustees as the "eldest lineal
descendant of Ezra Cornell."
Rescued from the trash outside James Law Hall in 1950 by Dr. Howard Evans.
