Moses Brown Ives
Ives never practiced law. He first became a merchant in Providence and then from 1835 to 1857 he served as the president of Providence Bank. During this time, Ives was also an acting trustee of Brown University from 1822 to 1857 as well as their Treasurer from 1825 to 1857. He died at Warwick, RI.
Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive. Researchers and staff have identified students through letters, diaries, family histories and genealogies, and town histories as well as catalogues of students printed in various years. Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students. The history of both schools and the identification of the students who attended them owe credit to the early 20th century research and documentation efforts of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel and Samuel Fisher, and the late 20th century research and documentation efforts of Lynne Templeton Brickley and the Litchfield Historical Society staff.
