George Kendall Warren (1824-1884) was a distinguished northeastern landscape photographer and the most highly-regarded collegiate yearbook photographer to elite northeastern institutions: Dartmouth, Williams, Brown, Weslyan, Yale, Princeton, Rutgers, West Point, Union, and Harvard.

The Class of 1866 graduated George A. Glass and Frank Wright, founders of the '66 Base Ball Club in 1862, later re-named the Harvard University Base Ball Club in 1864.
