Hi, Bertha. It was undoubtedly the noted educator and author, Fred Lewis Pattee, who was a professor of English and American literature at Pennsylvania State College from 1894 to 1928, when he became professor emeritus. A concise bio of him may be found in the National Cyclopedia of American Biography, vol. 39, page 182. While there may very well be a Middleburg College in Pennsylvania (I have no idea), note that from 1924 to 1936 he taught at the Bread Loaf summer school of English, Middlebury VT. It is uncertain if he descended from Peter Pattee of Haverhill. In Penn State Yankee, The Autobiography of Fred Lewis Pattee [Penn State College, 1953], he says "our family tradition is inflexibly against it." Hope this helps. Marie
