Rev. Stephen Larigaudelle Dubuisson (b. Santo Domingo, 1786, d . France,1863) and Rev. William Feiner (b. in Poland, date unknown, d. Georgetown,1829) both served as Rectors of Georgetown in the 1820s and made entries in one of the letterbooks in this collection. Because each left little else except the Georgetown administrative material, the collections are grouped. From Dubuisson there are three or four letters or sheets pertaining to students at Georgetown, and there are three bound notebooks, one on metaphysics, one a spiritual diary, and one a diary. In addition, the Letter book #1 in the Feiner section has entries in Dubuisson's hand. From Feiner there are five medium-size, unbound letterbooks which amount to an administrative record of Georgetown, 1825-1829 , and which compare with part of the McElroy Papers from the previous decade (ca. 1809-1818).There is one folder of loose letters on related administrative topics from the same period.
