Henry Wilmarth Hazzen

1842 - 1899

Henry Wilmarth Hazzen (1842–1899) was a professor of literature at Shimer College and a frequent speaker on the Midwestern and New England lecture circuits. Although he wrote numerous essays and columns, his only book, Fourteen Sonnets and Poems, a verse dialogue with the great writers and thinkers of the past, was published posthumously by his wife Isabel Dearborn. Although he died a half-century before Shimer actually adopted its present-day Great Books curriculum, he is sometimes considered the school's first Great Books instructor.
