John Herschel recorded it as "very faint, pretty large. An outlier of the group figured in Plate III No. 2. Place from diagram." The grouping referred to consists of NGC 1929, 1934, 1935 and NGC 1936.
Henize (Catalogues of Hydrogen Alpha Emission Stars and Nebulae in the Magellanic Clouds, Astrophysical Journal Supplement 2, 1956, p315), his nebula LH N 120-44 (15.7' east-west x 19.4' north-south) includes NGC 1937. He notes that the 11.4 B-type star HD 269412 and 11.6 mag O-type star HD 269445 are the exciting stars.
Shapley and Lindsay ("A Catalogue of Clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud", Irish Astronomical Journal, Vol. 6, 1963) give dimensions of 2.6' x 1.2' and remark "few bright stars in dense nebulosity."
The RNGC (Sulentic and Tifft 1973) notes that this is a cluster+nebulosity in the LMC.
