PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1869. 



I. Nineteen years ago, the writer was present at the Semi-Centennial 
of old Yale, when the graduates of the earlier years of the present cen- 
tury came up from various parts of the country; and though ** grave 
and reverend " ministers, judges, professors, governors, senators, etc., 
at home, while there they were literally ** boys'* again. It was very 
interesting to mingle with them on the Campus, and hear them recount 
the old " times," and talk over their successes and reverses in life's 
contest. Every now and then, two old men would recognize and rush 
toward each other, and, with a hearty hand-shaking, begin to inquire 
after each other's welfare: "Why, I have hardly heard of you in forty 
years. I have been quietly at work in my parishes, and had lost track 
of you." . . . "Where have you been?" . . . "What have you been 
doing .^ " . . . " Whom did you marry ?"..." What children have 
you?" . . . "Where's Brown?" . . . "How docs he get on?" . . . 
"Whom did he marry?" . . . "What children has he?" And so on, 
hour after hour, in dozens of groups, the inquiries — mainly the above 
four — were repeated with little variation. And so it is always at every 
Alumni gathering. 

Incited by what was then witnessed and heard, the writer determined 
to gather and preserve answers to the four prominent questions, respect- 
ing the several members of his cmm class, and from time to time send a 
printed record to each ; so that those too distant, or too hard driven, to 
come up to Commencement, might at least have the pleasure of learn- 
ing at second-hand some of the things they would like to know concern- 
ing their old comrades. 

The printed slips issued a few years later, embodying briefly the 

where and what of the class, were so eagerly sought after by otherSf 

and the wish was so often expressed that " our class " might have like 

reports, that the writer determined to try to meet the general want by 

preparing a condensed Record of all the Alumni of our College in one 

volume. Unexpected difficulties occurred. Few class histories were 

actively kept up. The earlier Alumni had gone to distant fields ; and 

the address of but few was accurately known. A large number in the 

itinerant ministry were frequently changing their habitations. The 

Minutes of the Conferences gave circuits and stations, but seldom 

named the real P. O. address. Outside of the ministry, the work was 

still more troublesome. Large numbers of the letters and circulars 

sent out never elicited any response. Many Alumni were laboring 

B

in the South ; and the war coming on changed their locations, or shu 
them out from access. Several cases have occurred, within three w 
past, where two or three persons have each given a different "positive' 
location to an Ahimnus ; and all entirely different from his own accoun 
of himself. These and other difficulties have been met all along. They 
are merely mentioned in excuse for delay and some omissions, and a 
few errors that may be found. The Index and P. O. Directory at the 
end of the volume, prepared from comparing about eight thousand 
reports received since July i, it is believed will give, with a few excep- 
tions, the present location of all the Alumni of our institution now living. 

By greatly abbreviating and condensing the items, and omitting much 
unimportant matter sent in, the present volume gives about three times 
as many items as the preliminary one issued in 1868, though less than 
double its size. There is an immense number of dates, requiring over 
fifty thousand figures ; and it will be strange indeed, if, with all the care 
and labor bestowed, there be not some errors ; but there are very few, 
not enough to vitiate the general reliability of the Record. It is hoped 
that the condensed notes accompanying the several names will gratify 
the Alumni generally, by answering the common queries concerning A 
or B or C, &c. : " Where is he now ? and where has he been laboring?" 
" What has he been doing?" <* What of his family?" &c. (The Editor 
desires to acknowledge the constant encouragement and valuable aid 
he has received from President Cummings in preparing this work) 

II. Aside from its interest as gratifying curiosity, and from its being 
a means of making the Alumni better acquainted with each other, and 
cementing them more strongly as a body, it is hoped that this work will 
serve a useful purpose in showing the vast amount of work already 
accomplished by our Alma Mater, although but a little over a third of a 
century old. For illustration, a single line tells that " B was sta- 
tioned at M " for two or three years. This means that a man with 

the mental and moral power and influence which a thorough college 
training always gives, has preached a hundred or a hundred and fifty 
Sabbaths to a concourse of people ; that he has labored among them as 
many weeks, moulding their opinions, habits of thought and life, and 
political action. A single well-educated and trained mind is a power in 
a whole town or city or State, and really exerts more influence than a 
hundred uneducated intellects. The writings and teaching^ and preach- 
ings of the graduates of the Wesleyan University have exerted a wide 
influence in the largest Protestant church, and indirectly upon the 
masses, during the trying times that have agitated our country during 
the present decade. The Alumni outside of the ministry have not been 
less influential in their several fields of labor. Let one glance over the 
many thousands of lines in this volume, and sum up the immense 
amount of labor performed in the aggregate, and he can but feel that 
the hand of God directed the founding and carrying-on of the Wesleyan 
University. 

III. But, while the Alumni may be pleased, the Faculty, the Trus- 



PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1 869. vii 

TEES, and the Donors to the Institution, must experience the highest 
satisfaction in looking over what has been accomplished. Have the 
Trustees found any other like amount of work to produce so great 
returns ? Have the Donors, large and small, found other investments 
that have paid so large a percentage ? Would the Faculty wish any of 
their labors recalled ? Could they have gone into any other field where 
their planting and sowing and watering and pruning would have yielded 
a larger harvest ? . . '. During the progress of this work, the writer's 
mind has often turned with gratitude toward those whose earnest labors, 
watchful care, and generous gifts, have built up and supported an insti- 
tution which has given so many of us the mental discipline and literary 
advantages there enjoyed. Another thought has also often come up in 
the same connection. Suppose we gather from these Records a sum- 
mary of what has so far been done by the Alumni who have already 
gone forth from Middletown, and add thereto what may be reasonably 
expected from them in the future. Suppose we next reckon the entire 
expense paid by donations, including only the annual interest on endow- 
ments and buildings which are to continue perpetually productive. A 
rough estimate will show that evepy ten dollars actually contributed and 
expended has furnished to the country a whole year's labor and influence 
of an educated mind. Is not such an investment a paying one?* 

IV. But the period of infancy and of severe trial has passed by, and, 
though the institution has already accomplished so much, it is merely 
upon the threshold of its usefulness. With its army of well- trained 
Alumni already in the field, one here and another there, each as a teacher 
and guide of public opinion, and with the annual additions to be made, 
how much more will be accomplished in the next thirty-six years ! 

Orange Judd. 

* Since the above was written, I have estimated that for " ten dollars/' I might have written five, 
or at most, six dollars. In the first calculation I allowed for only an average of about twenty-one 
yean of Post-Graduate work. Of my own class of 23, at least 18 of them are actively at work, 
thirty-five years after graduation. O. J. 

June. i88a. 



PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1873. 



The origin and design of this Record are sufficiently explained in the 
Preface of its original compiler. To Orange Judd alone belongs the 
credit of projecting and preparing a record of the Alumni of his Alma 
Mater more complete than any similar work previously issued by an 
American college. The task was one of whose magnitude those who 
have never attempted anything of the kind can form no conception; and 
the Record whicli resulted was not the least of Mr. Judd's noble gifts 
to the University, in whose welfare he has always taken such a generous 
interest 

At the annual meeting of the Alumni Association, July 17, 1872, the 
undersigned were appointed a committee to prepare a new and revised 
edition of this Record. It has been the duty of this committee to cor- 
rect, as far as possible, the few errors of the former work, to supply its 
deficiencies, and to add the information necessary to make the present 
edition complete up to the date of its issue. 

In November, 1872, the Post Office Directory contained in the first 
edition was corrected so far as the information then in the possession 
of the committee would allow. This was then printed, and a copy sent, 
in December, to each Alumnus whose P. O. Address was then known, 
with the request that he would at once return it with whatever correc- 
tions he was able to make. By sending tliis Directory in envelopes 
bearing the usual request to return, if not delivered, it was thought that 
any mistakes in the list of P. O. Addresses would be detected. Near 
the close of December, the committee mailed to each Alumnus whose 
address had been up to that time obtained, the pages of the former 
edition containing the record of his own class and of those next preced- 
ing and following, with the request that he would carefully revise his 
own record, bring it down to date, give any information in his power 
relative to that of others, and return as soon as possible. 

Early in 1873, circulars of particular inquiry with reference to living 
graduates whose address was yet unknown, or to deceased graduates of 
whose history we had little knowledge, were sent to those persons sup- 
posed to be most likely to give the desired information. Important 
facts concerning an Alumnus were sometimes obtained by mailing this 
circular to other Alumni of the same name, sometimes by addressing it 
to any friend or acquaintance now living in the town where an Alumnus 
had resided while in college, or to any other Alunmi known to reside in 
or near such town. Finally, about May ist, a last circular, requesting 



PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1 873. ix 

immediate reply, was sent to those Alumni of whose whereabouts the 
committee had certain or probable knowledge, but from whom nothing 
had hitherto been heard ; and at the same time a list of the few whose 
history and location remained unknown was published in the *' Christian 
Advocate," " Zion's Herald," and " College Argus," and was mailed to 
a number of persons having extensive general acquaintance with the 
Alumni. 

In one way or another, the committee have succeeded in obtaining 
some record of all but a very few of our graduates. It is believed that 
above four-fifths of those of whom nothing whatever was known at the 
issue of the edition of 1869 have, in this new edition, received a more 
or less complete history. 

It soon became evident that the changes to be made in the former 
edition were so numerous and the amount of additional information so 
large as to necessitate re-writing the whole work throughout. But, 
while this has been done, the committee have only ventured upon such 
slight changes in the original plan as might tend to greater conciseness 
and uniformity of statement. All violations of strict alphabetical 
arrangement have been corrected. All eulogistic, facetious, and other 
purely irrelevant remarks have been eliminated, to make room for more 
important matter. No mention has been made of official positions 
offered to Alumni but not accepted by them. Only such dates have 
been given as were furnished by documentary evidence or by the per- 
sonal knowledge of the meniber<( of the committee ; even in cases 
where others might have been inferred with almost entire certainty, it 
was deemed best to avoid the possibility of mistake by leaving such 
inference to the reader. When the dates of the commencement and 
the close of any period of labor or of residence have both been known, 
they have been given inclusively. An exception to this rule, however, 
has been made in the case of ministers regularly stationed by the vari- 
ous conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church. As these confer 
ence appointments are always made for one year only, instead of the 
date of the commencement and close of each pastor's various terms of 
residence, the dates of his several appointments have been uniformly 
given. Whenever the birthplace of an Alumnus has been unknown, 
the place of his residence while an undergraduate has been inserted. 
The committee have aimed at entire impartiality ; but it is quite proba- 
ble that some positions have received mention in the history of one 
Alumnus which were not deemed worthy of record in that of another. 
The difficulty of attaining entire uniformity in this particular, as well as 
in others, has been greatly increased by the necessity of dividing the 
work of compilation among several persons. 

The committee desire to make a hearty acknowledgment of the valu- 
able aid they have received from Mr. C. W. Smiley, of the Junior class 
in the University, upon whom much of the labor of correspondence 
has fallen, and to whose ingenuity, patience, and precision this record 



X PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1 873. 

will, in great measure, be indebted for whatever fullness and accurac 
it may be found to possess. Mr. Darius Baker, B.A., Tutor of Lati 
has also afforded material assistance. The task of preparing this ed 
tion, though not to be compared with that of the original compiler, h; 
been by no means a slight one. The additional information embodi< 
in it has been drawn from about fourteen hundred letters received sine 
January i ; and over sixteen hundred hours' labor have been spent 
preparing this material for the press. Those who have ever undertake 
any work of this kind know that it is necessary to aim at entire acci 
racy, but folly to expect to attain it. The committee cannot hope tha 
in a work offering so many opportunities for error, and undertaken i 
them in addition to their regular college duties — the past year unusual 
pnerous — no mistakes will be found. They trust, however, that thes 
mistakes are few in number, and not such as to seriously impair t\ 
value of the Record. They will feel themselves amply repaid for the 
labors if this Revised Edition shall prove satisfactory to the large fan 
ily of Alumni whose honorable career it records, and shall serve 1 
unite them more closely to each other and to our common Alma Mate

PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1882. 



The present edition of the Alumni Record differs from its predeces- 
sors in being published officially by the authorities of the University. 
The edition of 1869 was due to the enterprise and generosity of Orange 
Judd, M.A., and that of 1873 was published under the auspices of the 
Alumni Association. The Trustees, at their session in June, 1879, 
authorized the issue of a third edition, under the direction of the 
Faculty. During the ensuing college year the Faculty appointed a 
Committee of Supervision, consisting of President Foss and Professors 
Winchester and Rice. In the year 1880- 1, Dr. Foss having resigned 
the presidency, and Professor Winchester being absent on leave, Presi- 
dent Beach and Professor Harrington were added to the Committee. 

The original design was to issue another edition of the Record of 
Graduate Alumni, on the same general plan as the edition of 1873. 
On recommendation of the Committee of Supervision, Joseph C. 
Burke, M.A., was appointed Editor; and the Record of (iraduate 
Alumni, forming the first part of the present work, has been prepared 
by him. The original plan, however, was enlarged, in consequence of 
the generous offers of co-operation received from G. Brown Goode, 
M.A., Assistant Director of the U. S. National Museum, and Charles 
W. Smiley, M.A., Chief Clerk of the Fishery Department of the U. S. 
Census. Mr. Goode volunteered to prepare a Bibliographical Record 
of the Alumni and Faculty of the University, and Mr. Smiley volun- 
teered to prepare a Record of Non-graduate Alumni. The high repu- 
tation of these gentlemen for bibliographical and statistical work ren- 
dered their offers of co-operation most grateful, and the Committee 
promptly decided to add these two parts to the work. It is believed 
that the present volume affords a more complete record of the lives 
and services of the former members of the College than is possessed 
by any similar institution. 

It should be understood that the Committee of Supervision have had 
nothing to do with the details of the work. They have watched with 
interest the progress of the book, and have, from time to time, made 
suggestions to the Editors in regard to the plans to be followed. But, 
for the several parts of the present volume, the Editors named on the 
respective title-pages are individually responsible. The credit for the 
thoroughness and accuracy with which (in the opinion of the Commit- 
tee) the work has been executed, belongs, accordingly, to Messrs. 
Burke, Smiley, and Goode. 



Xii PREFACE TO EDITION OF 1 882. 

The delay in the publication of the volume, and the consequent dS 
appointment to many of the Alumni and friends of the College, ha^ 
been deeply regretted by the Committee. The Record of Gradua" 
Alumni was printed and might have been issued in the autumn of i88 
But the enormous labor of obtaining informatioa in regard to Hm 
Non-graduate Alumni rendered it impracticable to complete that pa« 
of the work at so early a time. The compensation for the delay is t 
be found in the extraordinary thoroughness with which that difficul 
part of the work has been accomplished. The most unfortunate effec 
of the delay is that the Record of Graduate Alumni has already becom« 
somewhat out of dale in the interval between its printing and its publi 
cation. Mr. Burke has remedied this evil, so far as was practicable, b] 
the preparation of a list of errata and addenda. 

It is believed that former editions of the Record have served a usefu 
purpose, in keeping alive the memories and associations of college life 
in uniting the Alumni more firmly to Alma Mater and to each other 
and in promoting: the general recognition of the value of the services 
which the University has rendered through the numerous faithful work 
ers whom it has sent forth into every department of honorable activity 
That the present edition, more complete than either of its predecessors 
may still further serve the same ends, is the hearty desire of 

The Committee of Supervision. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH OF WESLEYAN 

UNIVERSITY. 

(By Prof. C. T. Winchester, A.M.) 



^'^ Was not until about the close of the first quarter of the present 

century ji^jj the Methodist Episcopal Church began to give any very 

wrnest and hearty patronage to the cause of higher education. Between 

^^^ years 1824 and 1826, the flourishing seminaries at Wilbraham, 

'tent's Hill, and Cazenovia were opened under the auspices of the 

"^^'ifiination, and immediately secured a large attendance. While the 

seminaries served to foster and encourage the newly-awakened interest 

'" ^Ucation, the leading minds of the Church became convinced of the 

''^cd Qf some institution of collegiate rank, located in New England or 

Neiv \ork, which should provide facilities for the highest intellectual 

culture. 

At this juncture, a seeming accident turned their attention to Middle- 
town, Conn., and secured the immediate establishment of the projected 
institution at this place. In 1825, Capt. Alden Partridge, first Superin- 
tendetiiof the U. S. Military Academy at West Point, opened in Mid- 
d\eto^n the "American Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy.'* 
Through the liberality of the citizens of Middletown, two substantial 
stone buildings had been erected for the school ; and it was for a short 
time very prosperous, drawing cadets from almost every State in the 
v3nion. Its prosperity, however, soon waned ; and, failing to obtain a 
charter from the Legislature, it was removed, early in 1829, to Norwich, 
^t-» leaving vacant the buildings it had occupied. Rev. Laban Clark, 
*^D., then Presiding Elder on the New Haven District, happened 
shortly after to be in Middletown ; and being informed that one of the 
*™stces of these buildings had casually suggested selling them to the 
Methodists, for the sum of five thousand dollars, he at once notified 
">€na that he would be one of ten to purchase the property, and would 
promptly secure the other nine. This led to the serious consideration 
^ tfle matter ; and at the ensuing session of the New York Conference, 
"'^y, 1829, Dr. Clark presented from the trustees proposals for the 
^sfer of the property in due form, and urged their acceptance upon 
^^ conference. A committee, consisting of James Emory, Samuel 
*''*^V, and Heman Bangs, was appointed to consider these proposals. 
^^ New England Conference, being invited to unite in the project, 
"PPowted Timothy Merritt, S. Martindale, and Willbur Fisk to act in 
conjnnctwn with the New York Committee. 



XIV HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

The first act of this joint committee was to issue proposals inviting 
the several towns within a specified region to compete for the location 
of the college by the offer of subscriptions. • Liberal offers came from 
Troy, N. Y., Bridgeport, Conn., and Wilbraham, Mass ; but those from 
Middletown were now so modified that the committee had no hesitation 
in preferring them. The trustees of the Academy, with the consent of 
the stockholders, ofifered the entire property, valued at about thirty 
thousand dollars, to the conferences, on the two conditions, that it 
should be perpetually used for a college or university, and that a fund 
of forty thousand dollars should first be raised for the endowment of the 
college. About eighteen thousand dollars of this fund were promptly 
subscribed by citizens of Middletown. The report of the committee 
recommending the acceptance of this offer was adopted at the session 
of conference in May, 1830. The forty thousand dollars was soon 
raised, trustees were at once chosen, and the college organized under 
the name, " The Wesleyan University." 

At the first meeting of the joint Board of Trustees and Visitors, 
Aug. 24, 1830, Rev. Willbur Fisk, D.D., then Principal of Wesleyan 
Academy, was elected first President of the Wesleyan University. In 
October of the same year, a preparatory school was opened in the 
buildings, under the superintendence of Rev. W. C. Larrabee. In May, 
1831, a charter was granted the University; and on the 21st of the 
following September its halls were opened to students. The Faculty 
consisted of President Fisk, Professors Augustus W. Smith and John 
Mott Smith, and Tutor W. Magoun. At first, in accordance with the 
peculiar views of President Fisk, which were afterwards entertained by 
Presidents Wayland of Brown, and Marsh of the University of Ver- 
mont, the proficiency of the student was made the only basis of classi- 
fication ; and any student able to pass the requisite examination received 
a diploma, without regard to the time he had spent in college. This 
plan, however, was soon abandoned, and the usual system of classifica- 
tion adopted in its stead. It is worthy of note, that the Wesleyan 
University anticipated another of the most important features of the 
new education, by establishing, very early in its history, a scientific 
course, to meet the wants of those who wished to obtain advanced lit- 
erary and scientific training, but whose tastes or circumstances forbade 
the ordinary classical course. In its early days of poverty and of 
struggle, the institution had many faithful and earnest friends, among 
whom Dr. Laban Clark and Dr. Heman Bangs are worthy of especial 
mention; but to no one was it so deeply indebted as to its President, 
Willbur Fisk. His pure and lofty piety and his gentle and winning 
manner endeared him to all who knew him ; while his tact and prudence, 
his high administrative ability, his thorough culture and extensive repu- 
tation, and his untiring efforts in behalf of the University, soon assured 
its success, and secured for it general recognition. 

At the death of Dr. Fisk, in 1839, Dr. Stephen Olin, then in Europe, 
was elected President. On his return from Europe, the following year. 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. XV 

Dr. Olin found himself too feeble to assume the duties of the Presi- 
dency, and consequently resigned it early in 1841. In February of that 
year, Dr. Nathan Bangs was elected to the vacant post Dr. Hangs, 
then in the midst of a long and honorable career, felt that the sphere of 
his greatest usefulness lay elsewhere : he accepted the position with 
reluctance, and in July, 1842, willingly resigned it to Dr. Olin, whose 
health had now so improved as to justify his acceptance. 

Dr. 01tn*s fame as a pulpit orator, and his previous success in a simi- 
lar situation, caused him to be greeted with an enthusiastic welcome. 
His health was so feeble as never to allow him to devote himself as he 
wished to the work of instruction. He was, however, very successful 
in improving the financial condition of the University, and extending 
its reputation ; and his noble and commanding character was itself an 
inspiration to all the students under his charge. He received very effi- 
cient aid in the general administration of the college from l^rof. Augus- 
tus W. Smith, LL.D., who for several years filled the office of Vice- 
President. 

Dr. Olin died in 1851. After an interval of a year, Professor Smith 
was elected to the chair of President. Dr. Smith had been connected 
with the University from the beginning; he was a most thorough 
scholar, and extended, while President, the high and well-deserved 
reputation he had won as a professor of mathematics. It was the con- 
stant desire of President Smith, during the whole term of his adminis- 
tration, to secure such an endowment fund for the University as would 
relieve it from the constant pressure of financial embarrassment, and 
assure its continued existence and prosperity. About one hundred 
thousand dollars was subscribed to this fund ; and although, as is usual 
in such cases, the full amount subscribed was never realized, yet by the 
persevering labors of President Smith, ably aided by Professor H. B. 
Lane, more than eighty thousand dollars was at this time invested for 
the endowment of professorships. Isaac Rich, of Boston, was the chief 
donor to this fund. 

Upon the resignation of President Smith, in 1857, Rev. Joseph Cum- 
mings, D.D., LL.D., President of Genesee College, was elected to the 
vacant post. The personal force and energy of President Cummings, 
his tireless industry, his hearty devotion to the welfare of the college, 
together with his skill and popularity as an instructor, combined to 
make his administration in many respects a very successful one. It 
was particularly marked by the growth of the material interests of the 
institution, in which President Cummings always took especial concern. 
To his labors the college is principally indebted for the line of noble 
buildings that now crown the hill. 

During the Conunencement week of 1868, a new and tasteful library- 
building, capable of containing one hundred thousand volumes, was 
dedicated. This building was erected by the late Isaac Rich, at a cost 
of forty thousand dollars. During the same week, the contributions of 



XVI HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

Mr. Rich to the Endowment Fund were increased to one hundred tfi 
sand dollars. In the fall of 1868, the old " Boarding Hall " was rem 
eled and transformed into " Observatory Hall," by the addition o 
handsome tower, in which was placed one of Alvan Clark's fin 
refracting telescopes. The Commencement season of 1871 was r 
dered memorable by the dedication of two new and beautiful huildin 
The t)ne, the Memorial Chapel, was erected at a cost of about si: 
thousand dollars, in memory of those alumni and students who fell 
the war for the Union. The funds for the erection of this chapel w< 
mostly raised by general subscription during the centennary year, 18 
The other building was the Orange Judd Hall of Natural Scien 
erected during the years 1 86(^-71, at a cost of one hundred thousa 
dollars, and believed to be one of the most complete and elegant stn 
tures of its kind in the country. For this building the University 
indebted to the munificence of Orange Judd, Esq., of New York, w 
will ever be remembered as one of the most faithful and generc 
friends of his Alma Mater. 

It was during this period also that provision was made for the regu 
increase of the library and the scientific collections of the colle* 
During the years 1864-5, a library fund amounting to twenty-sev 
thousand six hundred dollars was raised by the Alumni. This fui 
although originally none too large, and since somewhat depleted 
unfortunate investments, has secured for the library a continuous, 
not a very rapid, growth. The whole number of volumes now in t 
library is about 3^,000. An increase of this fund is at present one 
the most urgent needs of the college. The completion of the Oran 
Judd Hall of Natural Science, in 1872, provided ample accommodatio 
for the proper care and arrangement of the scientific collections of t 
University ; and in the years immediately following, large additio 
were made to these collections, chiefly by the endeavors of Mr. 
Brown Goode, then Curator of the Museum. Since that time t 
growth of the Museum has been constant and rapid. In 1872 the C' 
lege curriculum was enlarged, especially in the department of natui 
science, and modified by the extension of the elective system ; and 
the fall of that year the halls of the University were, for the first tin 
opened to ladies. 

President Cummings resigned his position in June, 1875, though 
continued in charge of the department of philosophy until Januai 
1878. At a special meeting, held July 28, 1875, the trustees elected 
the successor of President Cummings, Rev. Cyrus D. Foss, D. 
President Foss entered upon the duties of his oflice at the opening 
the fall term, and was formally inaugurated October 26, 1875. I 
found it necessary to give immediate attention to the enlargement 
the permanent funds of the college. The growth of the endowme 
during the previous ten years had by no means kept pace with t 
growth of the unproductive wealth of the college in buildings, colh 
tions, and other material facilities. The increase in the number 



HISTORICAL SKETCH. XVII 

buildings and the needful enlargements of the course of study ren- 
dered the annual expenditures, of necessity, greater than ever; while, 
on the other hand, in the stagnation of business and general financial 
depression that followed the panic of 1873, the productive property of 
the college had depreciated greatly in value. In March, 1876, a com- 
mittee of the trustees decided thai only about one-half of the hills 
receivable reported at the previous Commencement could be any longer 
considered good. A debt, allowed gradually to increase for twenty 
years, had reached the sum of sixty thousand dollars ; while the total 
amount of funds from which income was available was only one hun- 
dred and forty-one thousand dollars. The annual expenditure was 
about ^orty-six thousand dollars ; the annual income from all .sources 
only twenty thousand. In these circumstances, it was evident — to 
quote the words of President Foss in his report to the conference in 
1876 — that "only large and generous help, promptly given to the insti- 
tution, could save it from disaster." Never, perhaps, was the Univer- 
sity in a more critical position. It is gratifying to be able to record* 
that the generosity of its friends soon removed it out of urgent danger. 
A committee appointed by the Alumni Association appealed for aid to 
all the graduates of the college. In response to this appeal about 
forty thousand dollars was subscribed, of which the greater part has 
been paid. Still more largely liberal was the response to the untiring 
personal efforts of President Foss. The inevitable annual deficit, 
while it yet continued, was met by generous annual subscriptions, in 
advance, chiefly from the trustees. The debt of the University was 
paid. And, during the five years of President Foss*s administration, 
nearly two hundred and fifty thousand dollars was added to the perma- 
nent funds. If the needs of the college were still great, the danger of 
immediate disaster was past Of the group of generous friends whose 
liberality brought this timely aid, the largest giver was Hon. George I. 
Seney, who began then that series of princely gifts to Wesleyan Uni- 
versity which has made him its largest benefactor. 

But it was not financial success alone that marked the administration 
of President Foss. A character so noble, a kindness and courtesy so 
unvarying, an enthusiasm for goodness so inspiring, a piety so high and 
pure — these could not fail of their effect upon all who knew him. His 
influence was itself an education of the best sort. No president of 
Wesleyan University was ever more respected ; none was ever better 
beloved. 

In May of 1880, President Foss was called by the General Confer- 
ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church to fill the highest office in the 
gift of the church. At the annual meeting of the trustees in June fol- 
lowing, the place thus hiade vacant was filled by the electjoii of Rev. 
John W. Beach, D.D. During the two years of President Beach's 
administration the college has seen no decline of prosperity. The 
increase of its financial resources, in particular, has gone on with 
encouraging rapidity. Mr. Seney has raised his contributions to the 



XVni HISTORICAL SKETCH. 

permanent endowment funds to the sum of four hundred thousand cJ 
lars, besides various other gifts to the property of the college amou 
ing to about fifty thousand dollars. His last gift, in addition to 
these, is a fund of one hundred thousand dollars, the income of whi 
is to be given annually in scholarships to undergraduate students. T 
whole amount of the permanent productive funds of the University 
present is about nine hundred thousand dollars ; and its whole propei 
is valued at one million three hundred and seventy-five thousand d^ 
lars. The faculty at present numbers twenty members, of whom sevc 
teen are officers of instruction. The number of students is larger th 
ever before, and is believed to be steadily increasing.

PREFATORY NOTE. 



Ta^ general suggestion that a collection of a few such facts as the following 

°^ P*'^ pared was made a few years ago by G. Brown Goode, A. M. For the 

8C<*P^ ^nd plan of the present work, however, the Editor is responsible. In col- 

^ and arranging these facts, he has made the attempt to present a condensed 

^ ^^thcr brief account of the growth and development of the University in 

^. ^ ^f its phases, and to produce a historical reference table rather than a com- 

P^ ^^n of brief narratives and pleasing anecdotes. 

^^^ far as practicable the facts are arranged in strict chronological order, but 

"^ ^cw cases items bearing different dates but relating to the same subject 

^ <iaturally grouped themselves under one date ; this is especially true where 

^^ have been separately fragmentary. After the opening of the University, 

Collegiate year is taken as the largest division of time, and the months are 

^^^^ed in paragraphs under these heads. Of those events regularly recurring 

^UaJly only two have been mentioned each year — Commencement and the 

^ day of the fall term. References in parentheses are given to aid in 

'^"Wing out the history of some subjects ; in a few cases, where possible, 

. *^ a forward and a backward reference is given. For every statement there 

*^*^e reliable authority. Contributions of money to the college of less than 

*5»Ooo have not been mentioned. 



the early history of the college is to a considerable extent a history of 

.^*"^ and plans, the completion of which adverse circumstances never per- 

^^<i, it has been found necessary, in order to faithfully represent the early 

^^5 of the college to make niention of a few motions and resolutions which 

^ never carried to completion; these are followed by the sign (o). Names 

^^^rsons have been inserted as little as possible. A few events in the early 

^J^*"^ on account of their antiqueness have been more fully described than those 

*^ter years. Only those societies and organizations which have prolonged 

^*' existence at least five years have been mentioned. Exceptions have been 

°^^«, however, in the case of chaptered secret societies and in other cases 

^ ^'"e circumstances have demanded it 

^Uc e«litor must take this opportunity for thanking generally all thbse who have 

**^^tcd by correspondence and otherwise in this work. The following is a list

While it is too much to hope that these Annals are without imperfectioi 
the editor should say that he has spent no little care, patience, and labor 
order to eliminate errors, remedy defects, and obtain necessary facts, and 
humbly presents the work as a small gift to his Alma Mater, trusting that 
may in some measure prove both entertaining and useful to those who consu 
its pages.

1824. 

Sept. 6. The land which now constitutes the greater part of the campu 
amounting to about thirteen acres, having been purchased through subscri

Elijah Hubbard, and John Alsop) for the erection of buildings for "The Ame 
can Literary, Scientific, and Military Academy." This Academy was found 
by Capt. Alden Partridge, the first Superintendent of the U. S. Military Aca 
emy, West Point, N. Y. This lot of land had a frontage on High street of 6 
feet ; elevation above sea-level, about 175 feet ; above the level of the Conn< 
ticut river, about 1 50 feet ; distance from the river, one-half mile west.

inoulcj compete for the location of the college by offering subscriptions. 

*'^y» N. Y., Wilbraham, Mass., Bridgeport and Middletown, Conn., responded. 

^"^ trustees then offered, on these two conditions, (i) the property to be used 

P^^ctually for a college or university, and (2) a fund of $40,000 to be first 

rais«ci as endowment, to give gratuitously the entire property of land and build-

RECORD 



OF 



Graduate Alumni 



OF 



WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY, 



JOSEPH CHESTER BURKE, 

EDITOR. 



PREFATORY NOTE. 



The plan followed in preparing the present edition of the Record o 
aU Alumni has been the same in main as that adopted in 1873. As a 
record has been made of the works of authors, all mention of biblio 
matter is here omitted, and reference is made to the bibliography 
spelling of names of cities and towns, and in the abbreviations of s 
territories of the United States, the U, S. Official Postal Guide 
authority. 

The number of alumni having increased more than twenty -five per c 
the last edition was issued, the labor of preparing this one has necessa 
somewhat greater. Over nineteen hundred letters have been rece 
.more than twenty-one hundred hours have been spent on the work. 

While in a few instances this edition lacks completeness, yet thi 
efforts of many alumni and friends of the college the addresses of nea 
graduates, and a great number of historical facts relating to them, 1 
secured. Out of the nineteen (not starred) whose addresses or entir 
were wanting in 1873, some definite information has been received c 
all but two. 

The editor desires to specially acknowledge the assistance he hai 
from one experienced in the work, Prof Wm. North Rice, whose kin< 
tions have been invaluable, and to mention, among the names of the r 
have furnished valuable material, W. S. Allen, A.M., Librarian of
