1851 Catalogue of Officers & Students of Waterville Liberal Institute, Waterville, Maine

Catalogue of the Officers and Students of Waterville Liberal Institute at Waterville, Maine, for the Academical Year Ending May 10, 1851. Printed in Waterville by Maxham and Wing....Mail Office, 1851

Bears the handwritten name of Charles Mathews on the back cover.  There's a middle initial but I'm not quite sure of it.  I didn't see the name Charles Mathews printed inside, but there are two students with the surname Mathews, Jesse R. Mathews and Clymena Mathews, each of Waterville.   I found a Charles K. Mathews, who might fit, in the Maine Census of 1850, but that Census doesn't give names of other household members, at least not online.

[Note of 29 May 2013: A reader explains that students Jesse R. Mathews and Clymena Mathews were the children of Simeon Mathews, who was instrumental in the formation of the Waterville Liberal Institute and was on its first board of trustees.  The reader speculated that the Charles Mathews whose name was handwritten on the book was the Charles K. Mathews who owned a stationery store at Waterville and was a nephew of Simeon Mathews.  Charles K. Mathews had a son named Charles W. Mathews.]
