In the year 1802 there appeared in the Massachusetts Historical Collections (Vol. VIII.) an article, entitled, 'Historical Sketch of Colonel Williams and of Williams College,' of which Dr. Fitch is the reputed author. In 1828 Dr. Griffin preached a sermon at the dedication of the Chapel, in which he traced 'the dispensations of Providence toward this College.' Additional facts and statements have since appeared in the History of Berkshire County, and in Holland's History of Western Massachusetts. In 1841 Professor Albert Hopkins published, in the American Quarterly Register, an account of 'Revivals of Religion in Williams College.' A memoir of Dr. Fitch appeared in the same work shortly after. In 1843, at the semi-centennial celebration, the addresses of Dr. Hopkins and Dr. Robbins were rich in historical records and facts respecting the College. In 1847 S. H. Davis and D. A. Wells, then of the Senior Class, published a pamphlet, entitled, 'Sketches of Williams College.'
