Description

Historical Note

Organized in Boston in 1815 and incorporated in 1816, originally as the the American Society for Educating Pious Youth for the Gospel Ministry, it was established to assist young men with limited finances get an education and join the gospel ministry. The founders of the Society had connection to the Society for the Moral and Religious Instruction of the Poor, now known as the City Mission Society, and Park Street Church, Harvard, Yale, and Andover Seminary.

During the second half of the 19th century many local education societies were formed along denominational and geographical lines; some of these societies focused their attention on students at particular institutions. Some of these societies were small and were founded and managed by women: two examples of this are the Corban Society and the Graham Society, two Boston female benevolent societies that supported students at Andover Theological Seminary, Andover, Massachusetts. The American Education Society's vision involved broad principles that were not limited to a specific region or denomination.

By the early 1820s, the organization aided approximately 200 students annually, primarily in New England. Under Secretary Elias Cornelius, the organization recruited students, established loan policies, raised money for scholarships, and established connections with other societies. By the end of the 1830s, the society assisted over a thousand students a year for college and seminary. Training ministers of any denomination were eligible for assistance, however most aid recipients were Congregational and Presbyterian.

The Congregational educational activities became increasingly sectarian after 1870, reflecting the increased denominationalism of the late 19th century. In 1874 the American Education Society and the Society for the Promotion of Collegiate and Theological Education united under the name of the American College and Education Society. Under Congregational support, the new organization provided financial support to colleges and individual students in need. 1894 the American Education Society absorbed the New West Education Commission and changed its name to the Congregational Education Society; the new organization continued the work of the previous organizations, providing financial support for theological students, private elementary and secondary schools in Utah and New Mexico, and pastors at state-supported universities and colleges.

Series V: Office of the Secretary

Date: 1819-1894
Extent: 6 boxes
Technical Access: Microfilm reels require use of a microfilm reader.
Scope of Series: Subseries A, Secretary's Incoming Correspondence, 1819-1894, is one of the most extensive series. Correspondence from the office of the treasurer was often kept by the secretary, consequently Secretary's Incoming Correspondence also contains correspondence to the office of the treasurer and for financially-related correspondence. To preserve the original order, this system was maintained.
Subseries B, Secretary's Outgoing Correspondence, 1826-1863, is incomplete; it contains some manuscript letterpress books with correspondence from Elias Cornelius, William Cogswell, Samuel H. Riddel and Increase N. Tarbox. Some of the volumes contain name indexes.
The Elias Cornelius memoir by B. B. Edwards, which is microfilmed, is also available in the library's collection and through the Internet Archive.  Please note, the leader is broken on this reel.
Arrangement: The folder arrangement appears to be the original order; this arrangement is roughly chronological order through the office of Secretary John A. Hamilton. Correspondence from 1893-1894 was grouped alphabetically by last name, and sometimes by the name of institution.

Series VII: Institutions

Date: 1832-1895, 1920s
Extent: 1 folder, 1 box
Scope of Series: The series contains correspondence, deeds and legal information for the institutions listed. Records in this series were placed in this series only if they were found loose and separated from the secretary's or treasurer's correspondence: records were not removed from series IV or V to be placed in series VII. The records in this series were likely separated out from the other correspondence due to the merger with the Society for the Promotion of Collegiate of Theological Education in the West in 1874 and the merger with the New West Education Commission in 1894.
