Collection-level Scope and Content Note

Fulmer (1833-1880) received the usual Jesuit education, was ordained in 1861, and spent most of his career teaching although some years were passed in mission work and he also did parish work for the last two years of his life. Two notebooks, each of some 360 pages, bound in boards, containing poems, comprise the collection. The majority of the poems are copied, but there are apparently a few originals.
