FOREWORD 



The Historical Catalogue of Brown University for 1914, pub- 
lished in connection with the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of 
the founding of the college, differs in some respects from its prede- 
cessors, the catalogues of 1894 and 1904. 

In order to keep the book of convenient size, it has been neces- 
sary to omit some material that appeared in the earlier volumes and 
to make later records brief. The history of the college will appear 
in the aimual catalogues, in which the charter will not hereafter be 
printed. The classes of women graduates are placed together, not, 
as formerly, printed after the men of corresponding years. Non- 
graduates and special students after 1894 are separated; this dis- 
criminates students who entered with the intention of taking a degree 
but for some reason did not complete the college work, from those 
who pursued specific lines of study without the intention of complet- 
ing the full college course. So far as possible membership in any of 
the Greek letter societies is recorded. The indexes of oJEcers and 
students have been consolidated and so arranged that all the refer- 
ences to each name appear under the name in one place. The geo- 
graphical index has been omitted because its usefulness is so soon 
destroyed by changes of residence. It is kept as accurately as possi- 
ble at the office and any information it affords may be obtained by 
applying to the Keeper of Graduate Records. 

Card catalogues of all the living graduates and non-graduates of 
the University are kept in the AJumni Room in the John Hay Library. 
Here are filed also all records pertaining to students past and present, 
so arranged as to be easily available for. historical or research work. 

Thanks are due to the alumni of Brown University for their 
prompt response to the inquiries addressed to them. Without their 
cooperation the present volume could not easily have been prepared. 

Louise Peosseb Bates, 

Keener of Graduate Records. 

By the authority of the Advisory and Executive Committee of the 
Corporation, supervision of the preparation and pubUcation of this 
volume was intrusted to the Committee on the Academic Celebra- 
tion of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the Founding 
of the University. The Committee desire to express in this place 
their appreciation of the efficiency and fideUty of Mrs. Bates, the 
Keeper of Graduate Records, to whose efforts is due whatever merit 
the volume possesses. In so great a multitude of details there must 
be many errors. The Committee beheve that the number will be 
found to be small when the complexity of the material is considered.

University*

have therefore justly merited and received the Attention and En- 
couragement of every wise and well regulated State: And whereas a 
Public School or Seminary, erected for that Purpose within this 
Colony to which the Youth may freely resort for Education in the 
vernacular and learned Languages, and in the liberal Arts and Sci-

A LETTER from Mr. Nicholas Brown, dated on this present day, having been 
read in the following words, to — wit: 

Pboyidence, September 6, 180i. 
GenUemen: 

IT is known to you that I have long had an attachment to this institution as the place 
where my deceased brother Moses and myself received our education. This attach- 
ment derives additional strength from the recollection that my late honored Father 
was among the earliest, and most zealous patrons of the College; and is confirmed by 
my regard to the cause of Literature in general. Under these impressions I hereby 
make a donation of Five Thousand Dollars to Rhode Island College, to remain in 
perpetuity as a fund for the establishment of a Professorship of Oratory and Belles 
Lettres. The money will be paid next Commencement and is to be vested in such 
funds as the Corporation shall direct for its augumentation to a sufiBciency in your 
judgment to produce a competent annual Salary for the within mentioned Profes- 
sorship. 

I am very respectfully. Gentlemen, with my best wishes for the prosperity of the 
College, your obedient friend, 

Nicholas Brown. 
Honored Corporation of Rhode Island College. 

IT is therefore voted: That the thanks of this Coiporation be presented to Mr. 
Nicholas Brown for the aforesaid Donation, and it is further Voted, That this 
College be called and known in all future time by the Name of Brown University in 
Providence in the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.

WHEREAS the General Assembly of the State of Rhode Island at its present 
session on the 11th day of February 1863, has passed an Act the principal 
Section of which is in the following words viz: Section 1. The Corporation of Brown 
University in Providence consenting hereto that the estates, persons and families of 
the President and Professors for the time being, and their successors in ofiSce, shall 
not hereafter be freed and exempted from taxes for more than the amount of Ten 
Thousand dollars for each of such ofiScers, his estates persons and family included. 

And Whereas the Institution of Brown University, was established by its founders, 
was incorporated with liberal franchises by the State, has been maintained solely by 
private benefactions; all uniting for the same noble object, that is, to create and

Note: This has sometimes been called the CONSCIENTIOUS CLASS. It appears 

from the record, that they were unwilling to accept of parts on Commencement. 

unless the distribution of them on the principle of scholarship were relinquished. 

This could not be done consistently with President Wayland's views of the matter, 

and consequently all but three of the class declined being candidates for degrees. 

Degrees were later conferred and the date after the degree shows the year in which 

it was given.
