Daniel Dunbar was the son of Aaron and Mary Potter Dunbar. After graduating from Yale, Daniel worked at Williams College as a tutor for several years after graduation. After leaving his position as a tutor, he attended the Litchfield Law School. He was admitted to the bar in Connecticut. He worked as a lawyer most of his life in Berlin, CT. He died in Hartford, CT.
Years at LLS:
Graduated from Yale College in 1794.
Admitted To Bar:
The Citation of Attendance provides primary source documentation of the student’s attendance at the Litchfield Female Academy and/or the Litchfield Law School. If a citation is absent, the student is thought to have attended but currently lacks primary source confirmation.
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.
