New Orleans, LA
Bigelow worked on several newspapers, starting in 1813 with The Boston Daily Advertiser, regarded as the first successful daily paper to operate in that city. The paper was published by W. W. Clapp, and Bigelow worked as editor for the first year. After his wife's death in 1816, Bigelow relocated to New York where, from 1817 to 1819, he worked with Orville Holley, a native of Salisbury, Connecticut, to edit the American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review....
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.
