About this Item

Edward Tyrrel Channing (1790-1856) was a professor at Harvard College. He was the brother to the noted Unitarian preacher William Ellery Channing and physician Walter Channing. In 1807 he graduated from Harvard College, began to practice law in Boston but devoted his attention mainly to literature. From 1819-1850 he taught at Harvard as the Boylston Professor of Rhetoric and Oraty. His students included Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Wendell Phillips, and Henry David Thoreau. A memorial volume of his lectures was published in 1856 with a memoir by Richard Henry Dana, Jr. (1815-1882). This pamphlet is inscribed by Channing to Dana on the title-page: "To Richard H. Dana Jr. from his sincerely Edward T. Channing." R. H. Dana Jr. was an American lawyer and politician from Massachusetts. He became a prominent abolitionist, helping to found the anti-slavery Free Soil Party in 1848. During the American Civil War he served as a United States Attorney.
