Abstract: The work of Lehmer and Briggs on Euler constants in arithmetical progressions is extended to the generalized Euler constants that arise in the Laurent expansion of $ \zeta (s)$ about $ s = 1$. The results are applied to the summation of several classes of slowly converging series. A table of the constants is provided.
