Harriett Beecher Stowe, ca. 1890 / Maine Historical Society

Harriet Beecher Stowe was married to Calvin Ellis Stowe, a Bowdoin alumnus. When Calvin was offered a position on the Bowdoin faculty in 1850, the Stowe family moved from Cincinnati, Ohio to Brunswick. By this time, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow had long since left Brunswick and was a well-established writer, living at Craigie House in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
