A historical description of Lehigh University’s campus and its relationship to Bethlehem through surveying notes made by the civil engineering students from Sophomore Classes in the 1880s as recorded in this field notebook. The Surveying classes were under the instruction of Professor Charles L. Doolittle, father of poetess Hilda Doolittle. Some of the student notations were made by H. H. McClintic and C. D. Marshall, who would later form the company that built the Panama Canal gates.
These notes give an insight into Lehigh University’s history curriculum in the nineteenth century. The notes reveal the focus on separate primary and secondary sources in each lecture. The nature of the lectures demonstrates Dr. Coppee’s extensive knowledge of world history.
