Horace Hopkins Coolidge, age 22, on his graduation from Harvard College, class of 1852. (Harvard Archives)

Among the many gifts his fairy godmother endowed on Horace Coolidge were a genial charm of manner, a rare tenderness and a spirit of living kindness, and a loyalty in friendship which made him dearly loved by all who knew him.

After graduating, he did what many young men of his time did, and traveled to Egypt for two years, returning to Boston to marry his sweetheart and become a lawyer.
