(39) Daniel Waldo, himself a member of the American Temperance Society, remembered that Calvin Chapin was considered "somewhat peculiar" while he was at Yale--"I may say, uncouth, in his appearance, though it was quickly apparent that he was not lacking either in good sense or good feeling." (40) Edward Payson's roommate at Harvard remembered an "unpolished country lad; exceedingly modest, unassuming, and reserved in his manners ...
Yale and Harvard both got their chapters of the Phi Beta Kappa Society in 1781, followed by Dartmouth in 1787, and in all three colleges the future members of the American Temperance Society were over-represented: thirteen out of a possible nineteen for Yale, eight out of a possible fifteen for Harvard, and eleven out of twelve for Dartmouth.
Friendship cliques within the original American Temperance Society
The closest ties among the original members of the American Temperance Society are to be found among its forty-nine clerical members, that is, among the men who used their undergraduate years to establish a reputation for seriousness and hard work.
This is illustrated in Table 3, which shows clusters of alumni within the American Temperance Society (the list excludes outliers like Benjamin Tallmadge, Yale class of 1773, and Edward Beecher, Yale class of 1822).
One of the hallmarks of those friendships was their youthful nexus, and to that extent the men of the American Temperance Society behaved much like the men Rotundo writes about.
Todd's life story, told in overwhelming detail in his autobiography, reads much like that of the original members of the American Temperance Society: he was poor when he entered Yale (in 1818) and pious when he left it, having been caught up in the campus revivals of 1821 and 1822.
Miller's comments are especially apropos, as he happened to be one of the original members of the American Temperance Society. While he himself had only attended college for a year, enrolling at the University of Pennsylvania as a senior in 1788, he could legitimately claim to be something of an authority on student life, having served as a trustee both at the College of New Jersey (Princeton) and King's College (Columbia).
The second lies in what we know about the temperaments of the men who occupied leadership positions in organizations like the American Temperance Society. If the evangelical biographies are to be believed, almost all of them were models of restraint and self-control, virtues that just happened to dovetail with their commitment to promoting temperance.
For many individuals, and even some within the American Temperance Society, this was no doubt true.
Both modes were alien to the men who founded the American Temperance Society, and their penchant for self-censorship, both in their correspondence and in their comportment, would suggest that many nineteenth-century friendships were notable not for their passion but for their reticence.
The American Temperance Society proved too top-down to sustain its popular appeal, and it evolved into a national center for publishing and lobbying (much like late-twentieth-century American professional advocacy groups).
