Edward Chipman Guild, clergyman and lecturer on English and American literature, served as pastor of a Brunswick Congregationalist church from 1885 to 1894. During this time he also presented Sunday evening lectures at Bowdoin and occasionally taught in the English Department.

An 1857 graduate of Harvard Divinty School, Guild also served churches in Marietta, Ohio, Canton, Mass., Ithaca, N.Y., Baltimore, Md., and Waltham, Mass. Guild gave a series of lectures at the Lowell Institute while serving in Waltham. His scholarly topics ranged from English poetry to Icelandic languages.

The bulk of the collection consists of approximately 450 sermons dated from 1859-1891, the Lowell Institute lectures, and class and lecture notes on English literature from 1885-1894. Also included are Guild's notes on German dialects and Icelandic languages and a few pieces of correspondence.
