George Boole writes a letter to his students 6 November 1849

  • 06 Nov 2014

To mark the launch of George Boole 200 at UCC we have selected from UCC Library Archives one of the first letters written by Boole from Cork on 6th November 1849, just over a week after his arrival in the city.

The letter (BP/1/224) was written by Boole to his former students in Lincoln telling them about his new situation. After a short introduction, Boole begins to describe the part of the city, close to College where he resides. This fascinating account of Booles impression of 1849 Cork can be found here
