The Fisher Howe, Jr. Papers consist of Bible Society meeting minutes and a book of records of the Lawrenceville Classical and Commercial High School that were kept by Fisher Howe, Jr. during his time at Lawrenceville. The records book includes schoolwide student rolls, membership rolls for the Calliopean and Philomathean Societies, a list of societies, course work, lists of commencement speakers, and Bible Society and Temperance Society meeting minutes. An additional item of note in the book is a letter to alumni from the Joint Committee of the Debating Societies of the Lawrenceville School announcing plans to construct a building for the societies to share. The 1903 letter includes a building plan that differs from the eventual design of Kinnan Hall. It appears to have been added by Howe sometime after he completed high school.
