General note

Kidderminster is a town located in the center of England, about 130 miles northwest of London. Kidderminster’s name is derived from “minster,” the Saxon word for a large church. The first written evidence of Kidderminster’s name can be found in the Domesday Book of 1086. The town would go on to become famous for its carpet industry in the 18th century. In 1768, the reverend of Kidderminster sent books, sermons and pamphlets to Wheelock for use at the Indian schools.
