James A. MacAlister writes to Mother Katharine Drexel regarding Nash's ability as a student as well as his tuition bill. Nash "is a bright fellow, an industrious student, and stands well in all his classes," as Drexel notes. MacAlister was the first president of Drexel Institute of Art Science and Industry (now Drexel University) while Drexel was a philanthropist and founder of schools for Native Americans and African Americans.
