THIS LITTLE BOOK 

DEVOTED TO THE MEMORY OF ALUMNI OF THE PAST 

WHOM THE LIVING ALUMNI 

DELIGHT TO HONOR 

IN THIS THE CENTENNIAL YEAR OF THE COLLEGE 

IS AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATED 

TO OUR BELOVED LEADER 

CHARLES HENRY RAMMELKAMP 

SIXTH PRESIDENT OF ILLINOIS COLLEGE 

WHOSE UNDAUNTED FAITH. TIRELESS DEVOTION, AND HIGH IDEALS 

HAVE BROUGHT OUR ALMA MATER 

TO THE THRESHOLD OF ITS SECOND CENTURY 

RENEWED IN STRENGTH, HONORED OF ALL. CONFIDENT OF THE FUTURE 



PREFATORY NOTE 

The publication of the Centennial Edition of this modest 
record of the lives of the alumni of Illinois College in whose 
names Memorial Memberships in the Alumni Fund Association 
have been established fulhlls a hope that vv^as timidly expressed 
in the first edition, published in 1917, and a definite promise 
that was made in the second edition, published in 1924. But 
when the promise was made five years ago and the work of 
preparation begun, it seemed quite improbable that anything 
like historical completeness could be attained, especially for 
the early period. 

The fact is, however, that over one-half of those who are 
commemorated in this book are from the first twenty-five years 
after there began to be graduates, that is, from 1835 to i860. 
This result is due, partly to the wide-spread interest which 
the undertaking has aroused among the relatives and friends 
of early students of the College, partly to the zeal of the 
Sigma Pi and Phi Alpha Societies in showing honor to their 
Founders, and partly to the extraordinary generosity shown 
by the alumni in contributing the money for memberships in 
honor of men who, though prominent in the pioneer days, were 
often quite unknown to the donors themselves. 

If this little book shall bring back into the consciousness of 
the Illinois College of the twentieth century the personality, 
character and achievements of the leading Illinois College men 
of one hundred, seventy-five, and fifty years ago, it will have 
fulfilled its mission. The alumni of Illinois College have been 
deeply impressed in this the centennial year of its founding 
by the able historical narrative of the hundred years which 
President Rammelkamp has written and the Yale University 
Press has published. His moving story of struggle, sacrifice, and 
ultimate success centers in Jacksonville and Illinois ; it is the 
story of the College. But as one follows the careers of our 
alumni as sketched in the following pages, we are reading the 
story of the development of the great Middle West, the South- 
west, and the Far West. From Illinois and Jacksonville the 
influences radiate in every direction ; it is the contribution of 
Illinois College to the nation.
