He was assistant professor of Latin at Harvard from 1870 to 1877. Everett is the author of 'On the Campa series of lectures on the University of Cambridge' (Boston, 1865): two baseball books for boys, 'Changing Base' (1868), and 'Double Play' (1870); 'Hesione, or Europe Unchained,' a poem (Boston, 1869); 'School Sermons' (1881); and various pamphlets on political, literary, and religious subjects.
