PERRY, Arthur Latham, economist, born in Lyme, New Hampshire, 27 February, 1830. He was graduated at Williams in 1852, and has been professor of history and political economy there since 1853. In 1874, at the invitation of the Nebraska state agricultural society, he delivered an address in Omaha, Nebraska, on " Foes of the Farmers," which has been widely circulated. He has written editorially for the Springfield "Republican" and the New York "Evening Post." Since 1883 he has been president of the Berkshire historical and scientific society, and he is a member of the Massachusetts historical society. An earnest advocate of free-trade, he has delivered many lectures and addresses in its behalf. In 1868-'9 he took part in public debates on this question with Horace Greeley in Boston and New York. Union college gave him the degree of LL.D. in 1874, and Doane that of D. D. in 1883. Dr. Perry is the author of "Political Economy " (New York, 1865) and "Introduction to Political Economy" (1877), and is now (1888) collecting data for an historical work to be entitled "Williamstown and Williams College."
