Abstract

178 � JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Spring 2019) into Texas during Holley’s years in Kentucky. Among other cultural functions, as Transylvania’s president Holley helped create educated southern slavery apologists, like his teenaged student Jefferson Davis, contributing to the entrenchment and westward expansion of slavery. Indeed, after his death, Mary Holley resettled in Texas and wrote the first English-language Texas history. In retrospect, the 1810s and 1820s point toward a fork in the road: His Unitarian intellectual friends in Boston were about to go one way, and he had already chosen the other. Even if spotty documents did not allow Cousins to discuss this intricate question in depth (and even if he viewed it differently from this quick sketch), it needs more space than it receives. These concerns aside, Horace Holley grants welcome new access to an intriguing and emblem- atic life. Rebecca R. Noel is professor of history at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. Her article “ ‘No Wonder They Are Sick, and Die of Study’: European Fears for the Scholarly Body and Health in New England Schools before Horace Mann” appeared in Paedagogica Histor- ica (Mar. 2018).
