About this Item

8vo. 18 pages. Stitched wraps with title on page 1. Summarized from the "New Georgia Encyclopedia"; William Browne Hodgson (1801-1871) studied Foreign Languages at Princeton. Although he did not graduate from Princeton he still received a honorary degree. Hodgson became aquatinted with Henry Clay in Washington who secured a State Department job for him. As Vice-President, Clay assigned Hodgson to northern Africa to assist the general consul and receive further linguistic training. Hodgson worked in Algiers, Egypt, Turkey, London, and Peru. Under Secretary of State Daniel Webster he was appointed Consul General to Tunis in 1841. While in Paris, en route to Tunis, Hodgson met his soon to be wife, Margaret Telfair, daughter of Georgia Governor Edward Telfair. He resigned his State Department position in order to marry Ms. Telfair. The couple settled in Savannah, Georgia. Hodgson continued his scholarly works and joined the Georgia Historical Society where he was elected Curator. After his death in 1871, Margaret Telfair, had a library constructed in his memory at headquarters of the Georgia Historical Society. Bookseller Inventory # 6624
