Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)
Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12, 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts. He was the son of John and Cynthia Thoreau, and the third of four children. Out of his two sisters and a brother, Helen was the oldest sister, John Thoreau Jr. was Henry's older brother and Sophia was the younger sister. The house they were born in belonged to his maternal grandmother and is located on the outskirts of Concord on Virginia Road. Henry was named after his paternal uncle, David Thoreau, who died just six weeks after Henry was born. However, his legal name is not Henry David Thoreau but rather 'David Henry Thoreau'. It wasn't until after Thoreau had graduated from Harvard College that he unilaterally changed his name from David Henry to 'Henry David' Thoreau. Not out of character, he never bothered to petition the state legislature to have his name legally and officially changed. Henry spent the majority of his time walking in and around the town of Concord, although he did make a few journeys to other places. Occasionally he would be found sauntering and conversing with his mentor and friend

    Biography of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
    Study Guides and Essays by Henry David Thoreau Civil Disobedience Walden Henry David Thoreau Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12, 1817, in Concord, Massachusetts. He would live the majority of his life in that same town and die there in 1862. His father, a pencil manufacturer named John Thoreau, and mother Cynthia Dunbar Thoreau christened him David Henry but always called him Henry. As an adult, Thoreau began to give his name as Henry David but never had it legally changed. The Thoreaus had three other children in addition to Henry - Helen, five years older than Henry, John, Jr., two years older, and Sophia, two years younger. In 1821, the family moved to Boston, where they lived until 1823, when they returned to Concord. Thoreau later recalled a visit the family made to Walden Pond from Boston when he was four years old. When he was sixteen, Thoreau entered Harvard College, his grandfather's alma mater. His schooling was paid for by the money his father made as a pencil manufacturer, combined with contributions from his elder siblings salaries from their teaching jobs. While at college, Thoreau studied Latin and Greek grammar and composition, and took classes in a wide variety of subjects, including mathematics, English, history, philosophy, and four different modern languages. He also made great use of the Harvard library holdings before graduating in 1837.

51. Images Of Thoreau
Pictures and words describing Thoreau.
What Did Henry Look Like? Images of Thoreau from words and pictures Thoreau Reader: Home "His face, once seen, could not be forgotten. The features were quite marked: the nose aquiline or very Roman, like one of the portraits of Caesar (more like a beak, as was said); large overhanging brows above the deepest set blue eyes that could be seen, in certain lights, and in others gray, eyes expressive of all shades of feeling, but never weak or near-sighted; the forehead not unusually broad or high, full of concentrated energy and purpose; the mouth with prominent lips, pursed up with meaning and thought when silent, and giving out when open with the most varied and unusual instructive sayings." This description is from Thoreau's friend Ellery Channing, in Thoreau, the Poet-Naturalist The first picture on this page ( larger photo ), and the picture on the Thoreau Reader home page, are two of the three daguerreotypes taken in June, 1856, when Thoreau was 39, after a Walden reader in Michigan had sent money and requested a picture. The beard had been grown the previous winter as a precaution against "throat colds." The image above is courtesy of the Thoreau Society Collections at the Thoreau Institute Another contemporary, Nathaniel Hawthorne, was less kind, although also a friend. After meeting Thoreau in 1842, he wrote: "He is a singular character a young man with much of wild original nature remaining in him; and so far as he is sophisticated, it is in a way and method of his own. He is ugly as sin, long-nosed, queer-mouthed, and with uncouth and somewhat rustic, although courteous manners, corresponding very well with such an exterior. But his ugliness is of an honest and agreeable fashion, and becomes him much better than beauty."

Thoreau, Henry David
American, 1817–1862
Henry David Thoreau, best known to modern readers for Walden (1854), was better known to his contemporaries as a political activist and naturalist whose essays were often outgrowths of his public lectures. Modern readers have the advantage of access to his journals, which also shed light on his development as an essayist. The journals, in a wooden box made by Thoreau, are stored in the J.Pierpont Morgan Library, and reveal the seeds of all of his published essays.
The essay was Thoreau’s primary genre. Even Walden and A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers (1849) include separately composed essays inserted within the narrative. His posthumously published The Maine Woods (1864) and Cape Cod (1865) are likewise essays stitched together to form book-length studies. His early training as an essayist began at Harvard in the rhetoric classes of Edward Tyrrel Channing. Twentythree essays and the text of six speeches submitted to Channing survive, ranging in subject from the joys of wandering in the woods to an attempt at defining moral excellence, subjects that would continue to interest Thoreau.
Three general subjects provide the focus for most of Thoreau’s essays: a scientifically precise examination of nature; the relationship between government and individual citizens; and the joy of traveling, particularly by foot or canoe. There are occasional forays into other areas, such as his appreciative examination of “Thomas Carlyle and His Works” (1847), or his matrimonial advice to his friend H.G.O.Blake in “Love” (1865) and “Chastity and Sensuality” (1865). But nature, individual freedom and responsibility, and the joy of perambulation remain his focal points. In the longer works, Thoreau often addresses all three.

by John H. Lienhard
Click here for audio of Episode 339. Today, we meet another side of Henry David Thoreau. The University of Houston's College of Engineering presents this series about the machines that make our civilization run, and the people whose ingenuity created them. I n 1821, Charles Dunbar discovered graphite in New Hampshire. In those days they called graphite "plumbago." Dunbar set up a pencil factory with his brother-in-law, John Thoreau. When that plumbago ran out, they went to Massachusetts and then Canada. They made a good start, considering the poverty of American graphite. Most of it had a greasy, smeary, quality. English graphite was the best available, but it cost an arm and a leg. John Thoreau's son, Henry David, was raised in the business. He studied at Harvard through the mid-1830's, but he also kept a hand in the business. Pencil leads were made by filling a groove in a piece of wood with a mixture of ground graphite and some kind of binder. Henry David Thoreau worked on the problem of making a better pencil out of inferior graphite. He solved the problem by using clay as the binder. With clay he created a superior, smear-free pencil whose hardness was controllable. He made the Thoreau company into America's leading pencil maker.

Thoreau Ralph Waldo Emerson's Eulogy, Atlantic Monthly, August 1862 Emerson was a major influence and mentor for Thoreau; it was Emerson who loaned Henry a pondside property for the two year experiment that resulted in Walden .

57. Thoreau: Genius Ignored
A detailed biography of Thoreau by Lucius Furius.
Thoreau: Genius Ignored A biography with contemporary observations From the fifth chapter of Genius Ignored by Lucius Furius
Thoreau Reader: Home I T'S N O W ONDER that Thoreau's Walden is more popular than ever. The condition to which it is the antidote the delusion that material things can bring one happiness, that labor in and of itself is good, and that Nature can be ignored has spread from Europe and the United States to the entire world. We'd sensed that something was wrong even before we read this book, but needed Henry to bring it into focus, to strip the detritus from our still superficial lives, revealing bare rock. We may not agree with what he builds on this rock (the possibility of individual perfection) but are grateful for the stripping away. Finding each generation as deluded as those which preceded it, Thoreau continues to " brag as lustily as a chanticleer in the morning ," and continues to try to wake us up. Thoreau was born in Concord, Massachusetts, on July 12, 1817. He was christened "David Henry", but his parents always called him by his middle name "Henry". He had a sister Helen who was five years older and a brother John two years older. In 1819 another sister, Sophia, was born. The family moved to Boston in 1821, but returned to Concord two years later. Except for his four years at college and a half-year stay on Staten Island, Henry lived in Concord for the rest of his life. As a youth Thoreau spent his spare time exploring Concord's woods, fields, rivers, and ponds. He remembered visiting Walden Pond when he was only four years old (when his family was still living in Boston). He was a good student and his family made a special effort to raise money for his schooling. He was able to attend Harvard and graduated with the Class of 1837. Though he later disparaged the value of his Harvard classes and all formal education , he was an avid reader and great user of libraries (including Harvard's) throughout his life.
