A Brief History of the American Antiquarian Society

SAMUEL FOSTER HAVEN (1806-1881)


Samuel Foster Haven (1806-81) graduated from Amherst College in 1826 and was admitted to the bar in 1829. He practiced law in both Dedham and Lowell, Massachusetts, before assuming the librarianship of the Society in 1838, a position that enabled him to pursue his interests in archaeology.

This portrait, an oil on canvas, was painted by Edward L. Custer (1837-81) in 1878.
