Harvard University and the Adams family[edit]

Adams House, one of twelve residential colleges at Harvard, is named after John Adams and later members of the Adams family.

Connections[edit]

The Adams political family is connected with U.S. Presidents Millard Fillmore, William Howard Taft, and Calvin Coolidge and U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, through common descent from one Henry Squire.[13]

Through his mother, John Adams was a second cousin of Massachusetts governor Increase Sumner; their maternal grandmothers were sisters. Both were also related to President Coolidge and to Diana, Princess of Wales, and through the latter to The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

The Adams family is one of only four families to have produced two Presidents of the United States, the others being the Bush family, the Roosevelt family, and the Harrison family.
