The Forgotten Nephew: D.E. Lick and Old Stumpstown by Patricia Earnest Suter


David Ellsworth Lick (1863-1938) of Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, was the nephew of James Lick (1796-1876), the famous philanthropist who founded the Mount Hamilton Observatory in San Francisco.

D.E. Lick collected numerous documents of historical interest from the area of the Lick family’s home in Stumpstown (today’s Fredericksburg). The Forgotten Nephew presents 22 papers from Lick’s collection and shows how they relate to 18th and 19th-century local history.
