Overview and metadata sections

Ambrose Hunt was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on December 15, 1827, to Uriah Hunt and Elizabeth Shreve. He entered Haverford College in 1842. He did not complete his degree, leaving the college in 1845 when Haverford temporarily closed. He went on to become a bookseller and publisher until his death on February 24, 1880, in Philadelphia.

The collection consists of two notebooks. The first contains notes on Lectures on Greek Tragedy. The second holds notes on lectures given by Henry D. Gregory to the senior class. The Gregory lectures seem to be partly autobiographical.
