Oliver’s Excellent Adventure


Upon passing the Massachusetts bar exam in 1867, Oliver Wendell Holmes was ready for a vacation. On May 16, he set off from Boston with his friend Charles P. Horton for a salmon fishing trip to Grand Lake Stream, Maine. They first traveled to Saint John in New Brunswick, Canada, to meet up with another old friend, actor James W. Lanergan, who had moved there to manage the city’s Dramatic Lyceum. Before heading out, the trio visited a photography studio where they clowned theatrically with some of their fishing gear. Unfortunately, there is no record of their angling success from their week in the great outdoors.

 

Oliver Wendell Holmes, seated on the floor, plays the straight man beside Horton, who looks up with mock concern at Lanergan, who leans over him melodramatically. The names below are written in Holmes’ hand. Another photograph of the three is in the collection of Harvard Law School.
