BIOGRAPHICAL RECORD 



OF THE 



Alumni and Non= Graduates 

OF AMHERST COLLEGE, 

(Classes '']2-<)6.) 



187I — 1896. 

(THE THIRD QUARTER-CENTURY.) 

COMPILED AND EDITED BY 

W. L. MONTAGUE, M. A., Ph. D., Class of '55, 

For many years Professor of French, Italian and Spanish 
in Amherst College. 



AMHERST, MASS.: 

1901. 



PREFACE. 



The first volume of the Biographical Record of the Alumni of 
Amherst College, including the first fifty classes, was published in 
1883. Its purpose was to supplement Professor Tyler's History 
of the college, with its view of the college life, the life of its 
teachers, trustees and benefactors, by presenting also the biographies 
of its graduates and thus serving to complete the view given of the 
work accomplished and the influence exerted by the college during 
the first half century of its existence. The character of the Record 
and the difficulties encountered during the ten years of its prepara- 
tion are described by Professor Tyler in his Introduction to that 
volume. 

After the 75th anniversary of the college it was proposed to pre- 
pare and publish a similar work for the third quarter-century includ- 
ing the twenty-five classes 1872 — 1896. A circular dated April 15, 
1897 was sent to the Alumni of classes '72 — '93. In November, 
1900, only 769 returns had been received. These letters had been 
placed on file in the several classes but had not been compiled for 
printing. Several of the Alumni who were interested in the further 
prosecution of the work then generously contributed a sum of money 
towards defraying the expenses of collecting additional material and 
preparing it for the press. A new circular was prepared, dated Dec. 
13, 1900, and sent to all the alumni who had not responded to the 
former circular. It was also sent to the home address (residence 
when in college) of non-graduate members of the same classes. 
The editor desired thus to enlarge the scope of the work, because 
in this way only can a complete idea of the influence of the college 
be given. Many of those who for various reasons were obliged to 
relinquish the college course received impressions and influences 
from the college which directed or modified their subsequent work 
in life. Some may have graduated at other colleges and thus divided 
the influence of the college upon their character, as some of our own 
alumni have taken only one or two years of their course in Amherst, 



IV. PREFACE. 

while others have gone directly to professional schools, or business 
life, and thus owe to Amherst all their college training. Very few, 
however, of the non-graduates replied to the circulars, as it undoubt- 
edly failed to reach them in consequence of change of address. 

After the replies from the two circulars had been compiled and 
all possible information had been collected from college records, 
class books, class secretaries, college catalogues, year books, etc., 
a third circular, dated April lo, 1901, was issued and sent not only 
to those who had not responded to the other two circulars, but also 
to those who had replied to the first, in 1897, in order that there 
might be supplementary reports bringing the record down to date 
and making it as complete as possible. After these returns had been 
compiled it was found that about one-tenth of the alumni and five- 
sevenths of the non-graduates had made no report, while many 
returns of the alumni were deficient in one or more particulars. To 
the latter a " Postal card with paid reply " was sent asking for the 
desired information. To the former, the address being unknown, a 
" Return " letter, with stamped envelope enclosed addressed to the 
editor, was sent to the town clerk or family of each non-graduate, 
first to the town or city where he was born (if known), then to the 
town or city which was given as his residence when in college. 
Some letters have been returned from both, marked " unknown," 
" cannot be found," " no trace of the family," etc. Every trace has 
been followed until the information was obtained or further effort 
seemed hopeless. Some, both of the alumni and non-graduates, 
have been unwilling to make any report, but others have taken great 
interest in the subject and rendered all possible assistance. The 
editor is under special obligations to Dr. Edward Hitchcock through 
whose aid, encouragement and influence the work was undertaken ; 
to Prof. E. P. Crowell for information taken from the Obituary Record 
of deceased graduates and from the returns of the first circular ; to 
Prof. E. L. Wood, Registrar of the College, for access to the college 
records and for alumni addresses ; to W. I. Fletcher, Librarian of 
the College, for the use of catalogues, year books, etc.; also to the 
editors of the class books of '73, '75, '76 to '88 inclusive, '94 and 
'95, and to Rev. A. H. Thompson of '72, John Albree, Jr., '82, H. 
H. Bosworth, Esq. of '89, C. S. Whitman, Esq. of '90, R. B. Luding- 
ton of '91, R. L. Williston of '92, O. H. Story, Esq. of '93, H. E.

Whitcomb of '94, and W. S. Thompson of '96. Thanks are also 
due to E. W. Carpenter, of the publishers, who has taken great inter- 
est in the work and rendered much valuable assistance. 

Errors will undoubtedly be found, although the greatest care has 
been taken to render the record accurate. Some already noticed 
have been corrected in the supplement. Information received while 
the work was in press up to the date of Oct. 23, 1901, has also been 
inserted in the supplement. Probably nine-tenths of the statements 
have been taken directly from the returns, but even these may err, 
as conflicting dates have been given at different times. After writ- 
ing for correction in some instances and receiving the reply "Wis- 
dom comes with age, the last is the correct date," the editor has 
usually accepted the last report. In some instances where no return 
has been received, the occupation, places and dates have been taken 
from the annual list of addresses published by the college. 

The arrangement adopted in the first volume has been followed 
in the second, making the report as brief as possible, avoiding all 
eulogies and stating the simple facts of each life without comment. 
The same general order has been followed in giving the record of 
each alumnus and non-graduate, i. His personal history before 
entering college. 2. His professional or business life, including 
both the study and practice of his profession with the facts arranged 
chronologically as far as possible. 3. Official positions held, books 
or pamphlets published, and honorary degrees received. 4. The 
death of deceased members, marriage and number of children. 

The total number of graduates in the twenty-five classes in 1845 • 
1752 Bachelors of Arts, 92 Bachelors of Science, and one Doctor of 
Philosophy. The number of non-graduates is 692 including 37 who 
were members of two or more classes. 

Of the graduates 350 have been clergymen, including 23 foreign 
missionaries; 188 physicians; 379 lawyers; 372 teachers, including 
131 professors in colleges and 6 college presidents; 66 editors or 
journalists; 4 engaged in literary pursuits; 12 librarians; 13 far- 
mers ; 407 engaged in business ; 5 were in the Union army in the 
civil war and 18 in the army or navy in the Spanish-American war. 

Of the non-graduates reported in this record 36 have been clergy- 
men, 58 physicians, 90 lawyers, 57 teachers including 11 professors- 
in colleges, 30 editors, i librarian, 11 farmers, 241 engaged in busi- 



VI. PREFACE. 

ness. One was in the Union army in the civil war, and three in the 
Spanish-American war. The average length of time spent in Amherst 
College by each of the non-graduates is four and two-thirds terms, 
or more than one-third of the entire course. 

The number of terms is taken from the college register and may 
not be accurate in every case, as the date of leaving college was sel- 
dom recorded. If a student, who had been present nearly the entire 
term, left college before his work in any subject was completed no 
record of the term was made. If one subject was recorded the term 
has been included in this record. 

It is hoped that the information collected in this volume will serve 
to increase the esteem in which the ever widening and deepening 
influence of the college is held, and like the first volume (as affirmed 
by Professor Tyler) " serve to brighten the chain of those college 
friendships which are among the most sacred that bind together 
human hearts, and which only grow more hallowed with the flight of 
years."

EXPLANATIONS AND ABBREVIATIONS. 



When the place of residence as given in the entrance registration 
paper, or in the annual college catalogue, differs from the place of
