- Rev. John Pierce, D.D., was a mild, unassuming man whose writings have received little attention. As secretary of the Board of Overseers, serving under four Harvard presidents between 1816 and 1849, Pierce was a brilliant chronicler of his times. James R. McGovern argues that more attention should be paid to the man and his work and discusses how Pierce's vast writings can be used by historians.
