When Thomas Paine first anonymously published his series of pamphlets titles Common Sense they became an overnight success. First released in 1776 at the height of the American Revolution the treatise denounced British rule and is thought to have been so popular as to have influenced the path of the revolution itself. In the words of Historian Gordon S. Wood Common Sense was, "the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era."

Father and son Loammi Baldwin, Sr. and Jr. were active in the Harvard community in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This collection contains an assortment of student records, notes, and correspondence reflecting the involvement of Loammi Baldwin Sr. (1740-1807) as a parent, donor, and committee member, and the involvement of Loammi Baldwin Jr. (1780-1838), first as a member of the Class of 1800, and later as an active alumnus. The records are divided into three series: a note in Baldwin Sr.'s hand with calculations of the length of printed lines of all the volumes in the Harvard Library (Series I), correspondence between members of the Harvard community and the Baldwins (Series II), and student records that primarily record Baldwin Sr.'s payment for and authorization of his son's undergraduate education at the College. The correspondence is generally routine letters such as notifications of meetings at the College, and the collection does not contain information related to the Baldwins' involvement as civil engineers in Harvard's building projects. Of particular note, the student records--primarily quarter bills, receipts, and absence excuse notes--provide a window into the role of a parent in managing the financial and administrative aspects of a Harvard student's education in the late 18th century
