Augustus Freedom Moulton (Bowdoin 1873) lived from 1848 to 1933. Moulton was born in Jay, Maine, on May 1, 1848 to Freedom and Sarah Coffin Carter Moulton. He practiced law in Portland from 1876 to 1933. He became the State Representative from Scarborough (1878-1879) and then the mayor of Deering in 1898. In 1927, Moulton was appointed state historian. His books include Portland By The Sea (1926), and History of Prout's Neck (1924). Moulton served on Bowdoin's Board of Overseers (1911-1933), and granted the school a sum of money in 1927 to construct a union. He died on March 16, 1933.

The collection contains Moulton's college compositions (1869-1873), essays (1901-1925), a journal of Moulton's trip to Europe (1906), and a photograph album that contains photographs of Ivy Day celebrations at Smith College.
