Biography/History

Samuel Stehmen Haldeman (1812-1880) was an American naturalist and philologist. In 1851, he was appointed Professor of the Natural Science at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1855, he joined the faculty of Delaware College but in 1868, he returned to the University of Pennsylvania as the first chair of the Comparative Philology department, remaining at the University until his death. Haldeman published and lectured on a variety of topics, including malacology, orthography, geology, philology and chemistry.

Scope and Contents

The collection consists primarily of letters addressed to Haldeman dating from 1840 to 1881. Topics include philology, phonography, ethnology, natural history and archeology. Notable correspondents include Melvil Dewey, Francis March, C. & G. Merriam, Richard Owen, Noah Webster and William Wagner. The collection also includes invitations to lectures at the University of Pennsylvania, and a small amount of correspondence from the University relating to Haldeman's appointments to professorships in Comparative Philology and Natural History. This collection provides an interesting glimpse into Haldeman's professional life through letters sent to him. However, these letters do not provide significant content regarding his relationships with any one individual, nor do they provide much information about his appointments to professorships, his role as professor, or his membership in professional organizations.
