Frank Waterman Stearns papers, 1683-1966 (bulk: 1788-1879, 1900-1938). Stearns, Frank W. (Frank Waterman), 1856-1939. Frank Waterman Stearns, 1856-1939, was the son of Richard Hall Stearns and Louisa Maria Waterman (1836-1922). Frank's father Richard was the founder of R.H. Stearns Co., an extremely successful women's specialty store in Boston. Frank Stearns served as a director of R.H. Stearns Co. from 1880 until his death in 1939. He served on the Board of trustees of Amherst College from 1903 until at least 1927. Frank married Emily Williston Clark (b. 1856). His only son, Foster Stearns, was successively a clergyman, librarian and politician.

The bulk of his material relates to Amherst College, in particular, the hiring and firing of Alexander Meiklejoh, President of Amherst 1912-1923. The material on the store concerns mostly with real estate on Temple Place and Tremont Street in Boston. There are some papers documenting his relationship with Calvin Coolidge as well as his personal scrapbooks, 1900-1928. The collection includes material by Foster Stearns who spent many years compiling information about his ancestors and those of his wife, Martha Genung Stearns. He also collected papers from various families that were related to him and his wife: Clark, Cushing, Frost, Genung, Richards, Sprague, and Waterman, 1683-1880. There are also photographs, including some of the R.H. Stearns building.
