SANFORD, Ezekiel, author, born in Ridgefield, Fairfield County, Connecticut, in 1796; died in Columbia, South Carolina, in 1822. He was graduated at Yale in lS15, and in 1819 published "A History of the United States before the Revolution, with Some Account of the Aborigines" (Philadelphia). Of this work Nathan Hale (q. c.) wrote in the "North American Review" in September of that year: " We have proceeded far enough, we trust, to support our charge of gross inaccuracy in the work before us." The same year Mr. Sanford projected an expurgated edition of the British poets with biographical prefaces in fifty volumes, twenty-two of which he had published when his health failed (Philadelphia), and the remainder of the series was edited by Robert Walsh, for many years United States consul in Paris. Sanford left in manuscript a satirical novel entitled " The Humors of Eutopia."
