  Memoir, by Charles Taber Congdon
Ewer was matriculated at Harvard University in 1844.
Ewer's first impulse was to become a teacher, a calling to which he felt specially drawn, and for which all who knew him will acknowledge that he had a special and natural fitness.
The plan proposed by Dr. Ewer was to declare a vacation of the schools, to abolish all the schools of the city, both ward and district, to divide the city into separate school districts, and generally to reorganize the schools.
