To the Members of the Class "1901": 

With this, the fourth report, I send my personal thanks to 
all the members in the Class for the time and trouble they 
have taken in helping me make up this volume. I realize 
it is difficult for a busy man to sit down and fill in a blank 
form with the dates and details of his doings since he left 
college, and I am very grateful to that large portion of the 
Class which has sent me the desired information. I am cer- 
tain also that the Class as a whole will be grateful to those 
members who have made the effort and have added to the 
pleasure of their fellow-classmates by giving this opportunity 
to read of their doings. 

It is of course difficult to get every one to give the in- 
formation desired ; many have written only a few lines and a 
few have failed to send in any news whatsoever. A large 
portion of the Class, however, has responded generously. The 
record of the members as compiled herein, is one of which, 
individually and as a whole, we may well be proud. "We 
felt sure when we graduated that as years went on we should 
be proud of our record and this belief, with the achievements 
of each year, becomes stronger. 

Since the publication of the last report we have lost, 
through death, the following classmates: 

Albert Hem in way Michelson. 

Rufus White Rogers. 

William Rotch, Jr. 

Rogers Wentworth Shapleigh. 

Ferdinand 0. Horstmann. 

Maurice Joseph Wall. 

Benjamin Franklin Allen. 

Edward Jeremiah Hatch. 

John C. H. Fitz. 

Peter Harden Eley. 

James Rumrill Miller. 
The principal work in the compilation of this report has 
been done by the Harvard Alumni Association and in so 
doing they have rendered, not only a service to me, but to 
the entire Class, for which we are sincerely grateful. 

Yours very truly, 

Harold Benjamin Clark, 

Secretary.

In May, 1901, I was elected secretary and librarian of the 
Boston Society of Natural History, which office I have since 
held. Its duties allowed me opportunity for other work, so 
that I continued post-graduate work at college in zoology, ob- 
taining the degree of A.M. (1903) and Ph.D. (1094). In 
1904, with Thomas Barbour, '06, and Owen Bryant, I made a 
zoological expedition to the Bahama Islands, publishing some 
of the results in short papers. In 1903 I went to Newfound- 
land to see the operations of the shore whaling stations. In 
the summer of 1906 I went to Newfoundland and the east 
coast of Labrador to investigate the bird life. In 1906-07 I

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

A senior on leave of absence I entered the Harvard Law 
School the fall of 1900 and received my LL.B. in June, 1903. 
I settled in Pittsburgh after graduation and was admitted 
to practice at the local bar January 2, 1904. Until Novem- 
ber, 1905, I was in general practice with Arthur O. Fording, 
and at that time I was appointed assistant to the general 
counsel of The Wabash Pittsburgh Terminal Railway Com- 
pany, The Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad Company and 
certain other allied properties. This railroad work took up 
all my time and they were very busy days too. When re- 
ceivers were appointed for the Terminal Company and the 
West Side Belt Railroad Company in the spring of 1908, I 
was retained as counsel to the receivers. Upon resignations 
of the receivers, the District Court appointed me receiver of 
these two railroad properties in December, 1912. I am still 
acting in that capacity and have been devoting all my time 
to that work ; but the indications are that within a short time 
the reorganization committee will terminate my job and 
then I shall likely have to go back to general practice. So 
far, I am glad to say, I have prospered probably as well as 
I deserved. I have been somewhat active in Harvard affairs 
since settling in Pittsburgh. For three years I served as 
secretary of the Harvard Club of Western Pennsylvania and 
for one year (1914-15) as its president. Also, I am now 
serving my third year as a member and secretary of the 
scholarship committee of the Associated Harvard Clubs. At 
this writing all of us fellows in Pittsburgh are busy with 
the plans for the twentieth meeting of the Associated Clubs 
to be held here May 19 and 20. Since leaving college the 
only foreign travel I have been able to indulge in was a 
short European trip in the summer of 1910. Member: Har-

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

It lias probably never occurred to the majority of people 
that chairs have to be manufactured. They are taken as a 
matter of course. It is a fact, however, that the production 
of chairs requires an expert knowledge in handling ma- 
terials, very careful attention to details, and skill on the 
part of the operatives equal to that of the more spectacular 
industries with which the public is more familiar. Since 
three days after graduation I have been in the employ of 
Heywood Brothers and Wakefield Company, the largest 
manufacturers of chairs in the world. Four years ago, 
there being nobody else in sight, they made me superin- 
tendent of that part of the factory which produces wooden 
chairs, a job involving/ the handling of several hundred 
operatives ranging from the skilled American mechanic to 
the dark-browed immigrant from southern Europe. I have 
managed to hold the job since. On the side I direct a little 
choir of thirty voices, which makes my attendance at church 
more regular than was my attendance at chapel during un- 
dergraduate days. They have further burdened me with 
the chairmanship of the parish committee of the Congre- 
gational Church. The duties of this office include raising 
the money to cover the budget; and as the budget includes 
my salary as chorister, they never had a more energetic 
chairman. Member : Gardner Boat Club, Gardner, Mass.

exchange. I am still actively engaged in this business. In 
1907 my brother and I bought a fifty-acre farm in Natiek, 
Mass., where I lived until the autumn of 1911. During this

Biographical Sketches 

The summer after graduation I spent in newspaper work 
with the Boston Transcript and Associated Press, as I con- 
tinued to do for several succeeding summers. For nine 
years I covered all the important tennis tournaments for one 
or both of these papers, and had the best of first-hand op- 
portunities to know my favorite game in all its aspects. In 
October, 1901, I entered the general auditor's office of the 
B. & M. R. R., but in February, 1903, I decided to teach. 
For the rest of the academic year I tutored in Philadelphia, 
going, in the fall, to Hackley School, Tarrytown, N. Y., 
where I taught a variety of subjects, coached dramatics, as- 
sisted in athletics, advised school publications, and per- 
formed all the manifold duties of the youngster of the fac- 
ulty in a boarding school. In 1907, I accepted the position 
of senior English master at the Hotchkiss School, Lakeville, 
Conn. As Parton wrote when he heard of it, "The Yale 
spirit is something fierce, but it's a joy to combat it." I've 
spent all my time since in Yale territory, without loss of 
loyalty to Harvard, but with increasing regard for Yale. 
I've known pretty intimately most of the Yale athletes and 
leaders in the last decade: Ketcham, Howe, Talbott, et al. 
Twice I have been asked by Yale to referee Harvard-Yale 
cross-countrv events, and this association has been most 
pleasant. In July, 1912, I accepted the headmastership of 
the Loomis Institute, in Windsor, Conn., a school endowed 
with over $2,000,000, on which work had not been begun. 
Everything was to do : curriculum to be planned, faculty 
gathered, buildings built. We began with an architectural 
competition which Dick Dana and his partner won. We 
have already six buildings, with the seventh and largest now 
under construction, — one of the most modern and beautiful 
school plants I know. As to curriculum, we decided it was 
the duty of the endowed schools to be pioneers, and, in ad- 
dition to the regular college preparatory work, we have in- 
stituted agricultural and business courses on the same plane 
as the traditional cultural studies. In our second year we 
have seventy-five boys, and expect over a hundred next

year. With our large endowment and consequently low 
charges, we can't help growing. I have two other Harvard 
men in my faculty and look for more. My duties as trustee 
and chairman of the building committee, as well as head- 
master, have kept me pretty busy summer and winter; but I 
have found a little time for travel, including one summer in 
England and one on the Pacific Coast. Member: Headmas-

both pleasant and profitable. From September, 1912, to 
March, 1913, I was manager of the Red Cross Xmas Seals 
Campaign for the Committee on the Prevention of Tuber-

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

culosis of the Charity Organization Society of the City of 
New York. When this job was finished, I was asked to be- 
come the director of the Milk and Baby Hygiene Association 
in Boston. In this infant welfare work I remained nearly 
three years and had the pleasure of seeing the baby health 
centres of the association increase from nine to twelve and 
the association's service during that time grow from the care 
of 3,000 babies in 1912 to 4,800 in 1915. The association's 
debt of $2,500 was wiped out, a substantial balance left, an 
endowment fund begun and Boston 's baby death-rate lowered 
so that it showed greater improvement than any other large 
city in the preventive care of its babies. In November, 1914, 
I was elected a director for a term of five years of the Ameri- 
can Association for the Study and Prevention of Infant Mor- 
tality. At the annual convention of this association in Boston 
in November, 1914, I was chairman of the publicity commit- 
tee and in November, 1915, read a paper at the annual meet- 
ing in Philadelphia and was on the membership committee. 
While in Boston I was a member of, and, shortly before leav- 
ing, was treasurer of, the Monday Evening Club ; on the 
membership committee of the Twentieth Century Club ; a 
member of the Episcopalian Club, the Massachusetts Child 
Welfare Committee, and in the fall of 1915 was elected sec- 
retary of the Massachusetts State Conference of Charities. 
Just before the end of 1915 I was asked to go to Detroit as 
general secretary of the Children's Aid Society. As this 
offered me a field of larger usefulness than any I had yet 
filled, I resigned my position in Boston to go to Michigan.

The account of my doings since leaving Cambridge is

were spent in New Hampshire, Maine and finally in New 
York City. Early in 1902 I removed to Aberdeen, Wash., 
where I lived until the latter part of 1905. During those 
years I busied myself with the lumber business, fire insur- 
ance and getting married. The winter and spring of 1906 
I was in San Francisco and about the middle of that sum- 
mer went to Seattle, Wash., as branch manager for an auto- 
matic sprinkler company. After four peaceful years there 
I was, by the same concern, shifted to Los Angeles. One 
year was all I needed in the South, and, since 1911, I have 
lived in Berkeley, Cal., where I have built a house, and hope 
to stay for many years. I have practically discarded tennis 
for golf, at which I am consistently mediocre, and my social 
life is closely connected with the University of California. 
No honors or offices have hunted me down, but on the other 
hand I can get good recommendations from past butchers 
and grocerymen. Member: University Club, Seattle, Wash..

Biographical Sketches 

On graduation in 1901 I took charge of the opening of the 
Civic Service House in the North End of Boston. In 1903 I 
entered Boston University Law School and was admitted to 
the bar in 1905. A department of the Civic Service House 
known as the Vocation Bureau started in 1908, and the work 
has grown into an independent organization, of which I have 
had charge since 1910. In the summer of 1910 I gave a course 
in vocational guidance at the Harvard Summer School, keep- 
ing this up for three summers, after which I gave the course 
at the University of California. In the winter of 1910 I 
went to Porto Rico to study industrial and educational con- 
ditions for the War Department. In the spring of 1912 I 
went to Europe to study labor exchanges for the United 
States Bureau of Education. Boston University established 
a special professorship in vocational guidance, which I have 
been filling on part-time. I have written: The Vocational 
Guidance of Youth (Houghton Mifflin Co.), A Study of 
Social and Educational Conditions in Porto Rico (out of 
print), The School and the Start in Life (United States 
Bureau of Education), A Civic Reader for New Americans

should follow in my father's steps and adopt astronomy as 
my chosen profession. A chronological table practically tells 
the rest of the story. From 1902-1905 the Dudley Observatory 
at Albany, N. Y., had a promising assistant. Promising is 
the term applicable to the young man who has done nothing. 
Tvhen you hope some day he may fool you and get busy. Then 
from 1905-1906 my quarters were located at the United 
States Naval Observatory, Washington, D. C, still in the 
capacity of promising assistant, when the opportunity was 
presented to take charge of the branch station of the United 
States Naval Observatory at Tutuila, Samoa, Life in the 
tropics agreed with me splendidly from a physical stand- 
point, and there were many interesting features connected 
with life on a tropical island; but those who have read Bret 
Harte's sketch of his visit to Honolulu will realize that there 
is a rough side even to the beautiful tropics. Scientifically 
while the budding investigator obtained a considerably in- 
creased knowledge of his subject, there was too much cloudy 
weather to make a success of the observatory, so upon my 
recommendation the plant was closed by the Navy Depart- 
ment in 1908. The next move was back to Albany where the 
real serious business of life commenced. Officially my title 
was secretary, an evident misnomer, as my clerical duties 
were almost nil, while in reality T acted somewhat in the ca- 
pacity of Man Friday to the institutions. The term institu- 
tions is used advisedly, for in 1906 the Carnegie Institution 
of Washington, founded for the purpose of advancing scien- 
tific research work, added to its nine departments a depart- 
ment of meridian astrometry, the object of which is to forward 
the work undertaken at the Dudley Observatory. In 1912 
my father, the director, died. By action of the trustees of 
the Dudley Observatory and those of the Carnegie Institu- 
§P v tion of Washington, I was appointed director of the Dudley

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

In the fall of 1901 I entered Harvard Law School, where 
I remained three years, graduating: in June, 1904. A year 
previous to my graduation, in August, 1903, I was admitted 
to practice in the State Courts of Massachusetts, and during 
my last year at the Law School, I worked two days a week in 
the law office of Elder and MacKusick, then located at 6 
Beacon Street, Boston. Immediately upon graduation I be- 
came a member of the firm of Elder, MacKusick and Brack- 
ets and remained as a partner until December 15, 1908, when 
Mr. MacKusick retired from the firm. After his retirement, 
Mr. Elder and I formed a partnership under the name of 
Elder and Bracket!, which lasted until May 1, 1909, when 
Mr. Ralph H. Hallett, now assistant district attorney for 
Suffolk County became a member of the firm. Meanwhile, 
in April, 1907, Mr. Elder had been appointed city solicitor 
for the City of Medford, a position he has continued to occupy 
from that date until the present time. From the time Mr. 
Hallett joined the firm until February 1, 1911, we continued 
to practise law at 6 Beacon Street, Boston, but on the latter 
date removed to the Fiske Building, 89 State Street, Boston, 
where we remained until February 1, 1915, when the partner- 
ship was dissolved. Since the dissolution I have been as- 
sociated in the practice of law with Frank M. Forbush. Mean- 
while I had become somewhat interested in politics, had been 
elected a member of the Republican town committee of Ar- 
lington, its secretary in 1909 and in 1910 its chairman, a 
position I continued to hold until the spring of 1913, when 
I retired from all political activities. In the fall of 1910 
I was elected a representative to the General Court for the 
29th Middlesex District, including the towns of Arlington 
and Lexington, serving as representative during the legisla- 
tive sessions of 1911 and 1912. Prior to my election to the 
Legislature I had served five terms as assistant to the district 
attorney of Middlesex County from November, 1909, to April, 
1910. On January 1, 1910, I was appointed attorney for the 
Arlington Cooperative Bank, a position which I have since 
occupied. I have been moderator of town meetings of the 
Town of Arlington since November, 1907. On May 14, 1913,

the winter in "Washington, D. C. The summer of 1902 I 
spent prospecting for gold, dredging ground on the Hoota- 
linqua River, Yukon Territory. On the completion of this 
work I returned to California and was engaged in gold 
dredging and examinations of dredging ground until the 
spring of 1903. After a short visit in Colorado Springs, Col., 
I went to work at the Portland Mine at Cripple Creek, where 
I held down various jobs from "mucker" to machine man 
for the next eight or nine months. From there I went to 
Flat River. Mo., as assistant superintendent of the Federal 
Lead Company. In the latter part of 1905 I was appointed 
manager of the Dairy Farm Mine, a copper property, in Cal- 
ifornia. For the next two years I continued as manager of 
this property and of several other properties being worked 
under option. From there I was transferred to Asientos, 
State of Aguascalientes, Mexico, as manager of the Santa 
Francisco Mine. In the early part of 1909 I left the employ 
of the G-uggenheims, after an employment of five years, and 
spent several months at Guanajuato. Mexico, learning the 
cyanide process. After a few weeks spent in Mexico City 
and the mining camps of Pachuca and El Oro I returned to 
San Francisco and opened a consulting office. The follow- 
ing year was spent in examining mining properties. The 
next year and a half I spent in the employ of the Natomas 
Consolidated of California, at Sacramento, as manager of the 
rock-crushing department, and later as assistant general 
manager of all the operations. In the spring of 1912 I be- 
came interested in a gold-dredging property near Nome, 
Alaska, and have managed the property up to date. There 
is little to add except to say that I have enjoyed mining and 
the wandering life in different parts of the continent. I 
have designed a few mechanical contrivances, the latest of 
which is a light power-drill for testing placer ground. I 
have contributed several technical articles to the mining and 
scientific press of San Francisco and have contributed to 
discussions in technical societies. Member: Engineers Club

Address Clarksdale, Miss. 

During the fifteen years since graduation, I have lived the 
last ten in Dixie land and am beginning to feel quite ac- 
climated. For the first eight of these ten, I was employed 
"by W. C. Craig and Company, in Vicksburg, Miss., as cotton 
classer. When that firm decided to retire from business at 
the close of the season of 1911-1912, I secured a similar po- 
sition in Memphis with Farnsworth-Evans Company. With 
this concern I remained only one year, when I was asked to 
join with Cohn and Ellett. of Memphis, in partnerhsip in 
the new firm of the Valley Cotton Shipping Company, with 
head office in Clarksdale. Miss., and I am in charge of this 
office, buying and shipping cotton abroad (in a small way 
this year, I must confess, owing to the slight disagreement 
the Kaiser and some of his erstwhile friends are enjoying 
just at present) and to the Carolinas and to New England 
milling centres. I have managed to retain my youthful fig- 
ure in spite of the advancing years and this is best evidenced 
by the fact that I can still comfortably wear the same dress 
suit I had when in college. And in spite of the worries of 
business, my hair is only very slightly gray and is almost as 
great in numbers as formerly ; so the good Lord has not had 
to do much subtracting in order to keep them numbered on 
my head. In other words, those who knew me in college can 
still recognize me after fifteen years.

Address 


West Park, N. Y. 



Upon leaving college, and after taking one short trip to 
Jamaica, B. W. I., with my father and Charles Kellogg, I 
settled down here on the banks of the Hudson and figuratively 
and literally turned my hand to agriculture, especially the 
raising of choice grapes for the New York and Boston 
markets. I built myself a small house, doing much of the 
carpentry and cabinet work myself during the winter, mak- 
ing a comfortable home where I expect to live and die. I 
have done some hunting and fishing and have written for 
several magazines at different times. I have found this part 
of the world a good place to live and though I have found 
mankind for the most part strong where they should be weak 
and weak where they should be strong, they are good neigh- 
bors and better than we were led to believe in Economics 2. 
Gardening, poultry raising, fruit growing, reading, a little 
writing, planning and building some fine stone buildings and 
bridges, overseeing the workmen, driving my car or motor 
boat, occasional trips to the opera, and generally keeping up 
in both architecture and agriculture fills my hours brimming 
full. I have three children, of whom I am proud and were 
it not for Malthus would have three more. Though I have 
had a happy and interesting life there is little in it to in- 
terest anyone else so will close and add that if any of the

In September, 1901, I got a job with the Boston News Bu- 
reau, with no salary, however, for the first few months. I re- 
mained with the News Bureau until 1905, writing financial 
articles for this publication and for the Wall Street Journal, 
receiving a salary from each organization. From July, 1905, 
until November, 1906, I was employed as statistician by H. W. 
Poor and Company, in Boston. Since December 1, 1906, I 
have been editor and manager of Poor's Manual, which has 
in the meantime grown from a single annual publication of 
about 1,700 pages into several publications, issued daily, week- 
ly, monthly, and annually, aggregating about 23,000 pages. 
To take care of this thirteen-fold expansion, a printing plant 
was installed in 1912; so that I have had an opportunity to 
study the printing business as well as the publishing business. 
Needless to say, I have had my nose pretty close to the grind- 
stone. Nevertheless, I have found some time for other things.

work at Cornell University, entering the Graduate School 
that fall and obtaining broad training in mechanical, elec- 
trical and hydraulic enginering. I was indentured as gen- 
eral apprentice, February, 1904, with the Allis-Chalmers

a large part of the electrical equipment of their new shops,

to New York in July, 1906, to supervise installation of 
water-works at Washington, D. C, remaining until June,

remained three years more in Rochester as assistant pastor of 
the Lake Avenue Baptist Church of that city. Then in the 
fall of 1907 I became pastor of the Baptist Church in Morgan- 
town, W. Va. The town is the seat of a large state univer- 
sity, and I enjoyed for two years the privileges of a college 
church and community, checkered with many interesting ex-

1909, I accepted the pastorate of the Immianuel Baptist

Upon leaving college I became a member of the faculty of

courses in English composition, argumentation, and oral de- 
bates, and coaching the university debating teams. While 
I was at Harvard, I formed the plan of ultimately becoming 
a lawyer, and after two years in Chicago I therefore 
dropped half of my work of instruction to study law in the 
University Law School. Thus I combined teaching and 
studying for a year. During this time I became a member 
of Phi Delta Phi law fraternity. In the summer of 1904, I 
became secretary to President Harper and relinquished my 
teaching. In this position I continued until the death of 
President Harper in January, 1906. Following his death, I 
served President (then acting president) Judson in the same 
capacity until July 1, 1906. Meanwhile I had become a stu-

Occupation Assistant Manager Mutual Life Insurance Com-

Address 353 Bridge St., Springfield, Mass. 

Having been fortunate in the possession of a kind-hearted 
father, who desired me to inherit some of his tribulations, I 
was drafted into the life insurance business, upon my gradua- 
tion, instead of realizing my youthful dream of bossing a 
country newspaper and "sagaciating around" while the help 
did the work. When I become a millionaire, I shall still try to 
realize that dream ; but Judge Branch, who knows a great 
many things (and most of them are so) says that I will never 
become a millionaire. I am now beginning my fourteenth 
year as assistant manager for the Mutual Life Insurance 
Company of New York, for which my father has long been 
the New Hampshire and Vermont manager. Our territory 
has recently been widened to take in the western Massa- 
chusetts office at Springfield, and we are just now moving

the Manchester establishment to that city, which will be 
general headquarters. I expect to spend the next year or 
two roaming over northern New England and living in my 
suit-case. Aside from keeping busy and trying to hold my 
job by surrounding myself with brighter men than I am, as 
Carnegie advises, I have done little worth noting since my 
wife came down to Boston and took me home from the de- 
cennial. In 1913, and again in 1914, I was president of the 
New Hampshire Life Underwriters' Club, the state associa- 
tion of general life agents. The club has since recovered, 
and is now so happy at our impending departure that they 
have just given my father and myself one of those "here's 
your hat, don't hurry" complimentary banquets, to which 
it took two policemen (considerably damaged in transit) and 
a pair of handcuffs to bring us. It was a nice, tearful time; 
the accompanying moisture was not wholly confined to tears, 
and they made us some fine speeches and farewell presents. 
I have written no books, and, finding my nature growing 
more peaceful with the advancing years, do not contemplate 
any immediate foreign travel. On my last trip to Canada, 
they nearly shot me for a German spy, and once is enough. 
However, I have carried one travelling-bag over a quarter of 
a million miles on my regular beat, punching up "passive 
village agents," and have worn out two or three others be- 
sides. For recreation, I take to the woods as often as possi- 
ble, play with a strictly amateur printing office, and admire 
from afar the scintillating jurisprudence of Judge Branch. 
I get a good deal of fun out of living, and my avoirdupois 
continues to increase faster than my bank account. I am 
still very glad to be a Harvard man, although some of the 
neighbors hint that I seem to be getting over it, which is not 
true in the slightest degree. Any statement of that kind is 
mendacious and misleading, and any man who would make 
it, in his sober moments, is an undesirable citizen who would 
lick his wife and rob the baby's bank to buy rum. Member:

Brunswick, Fredericton, N. B. I then returned to Harvard 
for my Ph.D., which I obtained in 1907, my subject being 
English Philology and my thesis on the Robin Hood Ballads. 
In the fall of this year I was appointed lecturer in English 
in University College, Toronto, a position which I still hold. 
During the summer sessions of 1907, 1909, 1910, 1912, and 
1913, I taught English at the University of Indiana, Bloom- 
ington, Ind. For three years I have been acting president of 
the Canadian Folk-Lore Society. I have written: Ballad 
and Epic (Journal of American Folk-Lore, 1908), Ph.D.

My "life" is four-fold. As president of Cole Brothers 
Lightning Rod Company and as president of Cole Realty 
Company I have managed to feed, clothe and partially edu- 
cate three lively children, — with the assistance of my adver- 
tising business. But the fourth domain, which is neither man- 
ufacturing, real estate nor advertising, has, of late, occupied a 
good deal of my time: — in short I belong to the vast body of 
American playwrights, with hopes, convictions and only 
partial accomplishment. Between the four interests and one's 
social life, this decade and a half has been full to overflowing. 
I have written sundry semi-technical articles on advertising in 
Printer 's Ink and similar publications ; brochures and leaflets 
on the action of lightning and construction of lightning rods; 
a three-act comedy (of course !) in the hands of an agent, with 
the hope of early production (of course!) and several one-act 
plays. Member: Harvard Club of New York (non-resident),

work. I have been interested in several city and town water 
companies here and in the West and expect to devote con- 
siderable time to this sort of work. I have recently formed 
a corporation known as the Homa Oil Company, to take over 
and operate oil leases in Oklahoma and, while the company 
is still in its infancy, it already owns the leases on over four 
hundred acres of oil-producing land in Okmulgee, Okla., 
and has at the present time seven producing wellis, and 
several new wells are now being driven. Oil and water, 
while not good mixers, are nevertheless much needed in these 
days of automobiles and baths. The things to sell are the 
things people have to have. Member : Union Boat Club, Bos-

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

20 men, mostly graduates from South, and "West. As a re- 
sult of the above I have practically no acquaintances in 1901. 
For various non-important reasons I have neglected to at- 
tend various gatherings; but some day I expect to begin 
building up an acquaintance of 1901 men. From 1900 to 
1909 practically all of my time, outside of that devoted to 
the six years Graduate School period activities, was devoted 
to tutoring in mathematics, engineering, physics and astrono- 
my, the first three of which I specialized in. Since 1906 I 
have devoted an increasing amount of time per year to de- 
veloping certain mechanical devices (my own inventions). 
Some heating, ventilating and cooling systems; three types 
of steam turbines and a turbo air compressor constitute the 
larger size devices. During the past four years much of my 
time has been devoted to developing, first, a balanced rotary 
valve gasoline engine, possessing much simplicity over the 
standard poppet valve engine, and also showing a large in- 
crease in efficiency; second, an automatic lighting and ex- 
tinguishing device for exterior gas lamps, by means of which 
more than five dollars per lamp per year can be saved over 
the hand-lighting system. The manufacture of these ma- 
chines has been started and they will make their appearance 
on the market in the near future. In conclusion I may say 
that it would take a very large book to contain a detailed 
daily account of my activities since graduation.

living quietly, endeavoring to establish a home in its true 
sense, and to fulfil the obligations which go with the privi-

Address (home) 45 State St., Windsor, Vt. 

(business) 3 State St., Windsor, Vt. 

My life has been rather uneventful. I have not won a 
great name nor riches. The practice of law in a small country 
town in a conservative state like Vermont, where there is 
comparatively little business, does not permit of one reach- 
ing very high levels. Up here a lawyer, in order to make both 
ends meet, has to do a kind of department store business, law, 
real estate and insurance. Out of the three I have made a 
satisfactory living; but that is about all. I find conditions 
in the country very narrowing, so little is going on that most 
people stand still and fail to appreciate that other people are 
doing things and that other districts are going ahead. I have 
tried to fight off this narrowing process as much as possible 
and when I get a little money ahead I run away to Boston, 
New York and Washington and try to see what you other 
fellows are accomplishing. In 1909 I made a fortunate real 
estate deal and blew the proceeds on a trip to Europe. In 
1912 I won out in a hard fight with typhoid fever and, in 
order to get away from one of our famous Vermont winters, 
I went to the "West Indies for a short visit. This last winter 
I took an extended trip through the West visiting the ex- 
positions. Xo very important or lucrative political plums 
have fallen into my lap. I was one of the Vermont delega- 
tion to the National Republican Convention of 1908 when 
W. H. Taft was nominated. Well anyway Taft had enough 
votes to secure his nomination before it came Vermont's turn 
to vote. I have held the usual run of town offices. Just at 
present I am school director and last year served as superin- 
tendent of schools.

Biographical Sketches 

merit as house officer on the East Medical Service of the 
Massachusetts General Hospital, a service from which I de- 
rived much benefit, as well as much pleasure. In June, 1906, 
I went to Europe for further medical study. After twelve 
months of travel and study, the latter mostly in Grdttingen, 
Vienna and Dresden, T returned to Boston and started the 
practice of medicine. I might qualify by saying that I made 
ready to practice medicine, for during the months that fol- 
lowed the hanging out of a shingle on Beacon Street, very 
little practice came to my doors. For the next eighteen 
months I was resident in Boston, and managed to keep my 
time filled with hospital work and teaching in the Harvard 
Medical School and with a little private practice, which came 
very slowly. In the fall of 1908, an opportunity to do work 
in Lakeside Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio, under Dr. Charles P. 
Hoover, arose, and I decided to take advantage of it. The 
year spent with Dr. Hoover was most interesting and ad- 
vantageous, and after leaving Lakeside Hospital, I decided 
to remain in Cleveland and work out my problem at this 
place. The seven years since I came to Cleveland, have been 
full of hard and interesting work and have been accompanied 
by a reasonable and gratifying amount of success. I have 
been privileged to do much teaching in the Medical School 
of Western Reserve University, and have had constant and 
valuable hospital experience. I am at present assistant chief 
of the medical department of the Cleveland City Hospital. 
I hold the post of associate in medicine in the Medical School, 
and am responsible for the teaching of physical diagnosis 
during the second and third years of the course. I am still 
a bachelor, and, from all indications, I judge that I shall re-

less enviable. Member : Tavern Club, Mayfield Country Club,

this being the old Bullitt firm, which has since become Dick-

them ever since. In 1910 I was given an interest, which has 
from time to time been increased since. In May, 1911, I was 
married and have since had a very happy life and two lively 
children, a girl and a boy, were born. I also own and operate 
a Ford automobile for purposes of transportation only. I 
spend my summers at Beach Haven, N. J., my principal out- 
door amusement being sailing and fishing. I find that I feel 
much better and healthier when I do not take any exercise. I 
still have all my hair, and am not very fat (6 ft., 1-2 in., and 
170 lbs., stripped). I enjoy laughing at a good joke about

vacations in the summers. The summer of 1902 I spent 

137 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

abroad, travelling with Burnett. '01. Talbot, '00, and Storrs r 
*96, and studying in Jena in Germany. In 1904, suffering- 
froiu an acute attack of "wandering fever" I went to- 
Missauabie, Ontario, a settlement composed of three log- 
shacks and some Cree Indian tepees, bought a birch-bark 
canoe, picked up an Ojibway and a Cree and started north, 
paddling and portaging to the Height of Land, then portaging 
over it and striking the head waters of the Missanabie River,. 
then down that to tbe Moose River and to Hudson's Bay. 
Seven hundred miles of paddle, pole and pack in five weeks 
and then back to the Medical School. Graduating in 1905, I 
entered the Massachusetts General Hospital, where I spent a 
year and a half, and then went to Vienna by way of the 
Azores. Madeira, Gibraltar. Algiers and Italy. In Vienna I 
spent nearly a year of hard work and pleasure, sandwiching 
in numerous little excursions to the mountains and to out-of- 
the-way places in Austria. Bohemia and Hungary, and in- 
cidentally acquiring smatterings of numerous dialects which 
have since become very useful in conducting an out-patient 
clinic, made up of every possible nationality. From Vienna 
I went to Germany, thence to Paris, England and home. Since 
arriving here in 1908 I have stuck to the practice of medi- 
cine, with only one real trip, — to Newfoundland and along 
the coast of Labrador in the summer of 1914. The trip was 
not a howling success, for the little steamer I was on became 
stuck in the ice north of Indian Harbor — though it was July 
— and for two weeks we froze and cussed. To make things 
brighter we ran out of fresh meat, vegetables and fresh water, 
and anybody who has lived for any length of time on oat- 
meal (without milk), bad salt fish and poor pork, with oc- 
casionally "salt junk" as a luxury knows that it is not like 
a 1901 class dinner! However, we dipped up very brackish 
water from the ice floes and survived. We eventually got 
out of the ice and started south, bringing the crews of a small 
steamer and several fishing vessels which had been wrecked" 
by the ice, and at Battle Harbor, after a few days' wait, T 
picked up a crazy little steamer and came down the wonderful 
west coast of Newfoundland. Arriving at the railway I de-

cided that all excitement was over, but not so ! Soon the train 
went off the deliriously-built track, and for hours the train- 
crew and the passengers worked in indescribable swarms of 
black-flies and midges to bring order out of chaos. Arriving 
in Boston I found the thermometer at 96° (and it stayed there 
for ten days!) which was some contrast to three weeks of 
freezing to death. I hold no offices of "profit," for the 
physician has so many unpaid offices wished on him that he 
hasn't time to devote to profitable ones. I am visiting 
physician to out-patients at the Massachusetts General Hospi- 
tal and consulting physician to the Massachusetts Charitable 
Eye and Ear Infirmary, and have held other appointments in 
other hospitals from which I have resigned. As I reported in 
the decennial report, "I have written no books, and as the 
titles of the medical articles which I have published would 
hardly prove of absorbing interest to the class and would 
paralyze the typesetter with horror, I will not mention 
them." Member: Harvard Club of Boston, University Club

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

My work at Harvard was largely along the line of applied 
science with some economics, history, and literature. I in- 
tended preparing for mining at the Scientific School after 
four years at the college ; but on account of opposition by 
my parents I abandoned this plan and in 1901 entered the 
engineering department of the Illinois Central Railroad. I 
started as a track laboror, and spent from three months to 18 
months as draughtsman in the chief engineer's offfce; instru- 
ment-man on location surveys in Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa 
and Illinois ; in charge of terminal improvements in Kentucky 
and Illinois ; assistant engineer maintenance of way in Illinois, 
Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana, and construction en- 
gineer, on new lines, in Illinois. Since 1907, I have handled 
bridge construction and drainage improvements. For the 
past year my work has consisted of handling surveys for con- 
crete and steel bridges, preparing plans, estimates and recom- 
mendations and the consideration of drainage problems in 
general. This work covers the entire railroad system. My 
work has made me a man without a home until the past year, 
when I have been able to stay in Chicago. For obvious 
reasons I am still single. Although Stone and Webster are 
not apt to consider me as being a formidable competitor, yet 
I feel that I have made the same progress asi the average man, 
or a little better, and I am still young with a good stock of 
ambition.

Ele} 7 and Annie Holt Harden. Harden, as he was familiarly

called by his associates, was hardly more than an infant 
when his father died. His mother afterward married H. F. 
Crawford, and the family moved to Williston, in Fayette 
County. Tenn.. in 1878. Harden received his common-school 
education at the Williston Academy, was graduated with 
distinction at the University of North Carolina in June, 
1900, and from Harvard University in 1901. Under govern- 
ment supervision he spent one year thereafter as a teacher 
in the Philippine Islands, and returned to the States to oc- 
cupy several positions as a teacher in southern institutions. 
About nine years ago his strength of mind and body failed, 
and with that his activities ceased. Such is the brief synop- 
sis of his life, — a life crowned with impulse, thought and ac- 
tion. By nature he was endowed with splendid capabilities. 
He mastered with equal ease the various branches of his edu- 
cation. His early life and young manhood gave every prom- 
ise of future honor and success. He was the author of a 
book entitled "An Epoch in History". He died February 
9, 1916.

about nine months; then with the Haulenbeek Company (ad- 
vertising) for about six months, leaving there to start in the 
publishing business in Boston as John S. Brooks and Com- 
pany. We published "Stillnian Gott," written by Edwin D. 
Sibley, '79. Incidentally the book was published in serial 
form in the Boston H(erald, of which Fred. Whiting, '80, was 
the guiding spirit; and while I was at it, I had it printed at 
the University Press, Cambridge, of which Herbert White, 
'93, was the manager, and I had the books bound at the Bos- 
ton Bookbinding Company, of which Norman White, '95, was 
the big boss. It was a good book, well printed and well 
bound, but the dear public couldn't buy dollar-and-a-half 
fiction and pay $15-$18 a ton for coal; so I quit the publish- 
ing business and went with the Morse Company, school 
books, covering central New York State and western Massa- 
chusetts. They sold out and I allowed myself to be "hired" 
by the Building Trades' Credit Agency of Boston, and here 
I have stuck ever since. I have bought into the business and 
now handle the destinies of the builders, speculative and 
legitimate, of all New England — from a credit point of view

For the first ten years after leaving college, I can add noth- 
ing to the account written in June, 1911. This report leaves 
me starting for Germany, to race a sonder boat, in company 
with George B. Dabney, '02, and George Nichols, '00. The 
trip was a most memorable one, especially so, in view of all 
that has happened since. "We were one of three boats rep- 
resenting the Eastern Yacht Club, to take part in a match race 
with three boats selected by the Imperial Yacht Club of Ger- 
many. The other two American boats were the "Bibelot", 
sailed and managed by Robert W. Emmons, 2d, '95, his crew 
being Wiggin, commonly known as commodore, and John 
Parkinson, Jr., '05; and the "Cima", sailed and managed by 
Guy Lowell, '92, his crew being Robert Harding, and a Mr. 
Godley, who happened to be in Paris, and filled in a vacancy 
caused by a number of regrettable incidents. The racing be- 
tween the American boats was the keenest and best that I 
ever hope to take part in, and I can safely say without exag- 
geration, that all three American boats distinctly outclassed 
the German boats in almost every particular. We had the sat- 
isfaction of winning the first race, but were finally defeated by 
the "Bibelot", the last race being sailed in a strong wind and 
heavy sea. We were a long way ahead at the windward mark, 
but were defeated by a close margin of about 10 seconds at 
the finish. The racing at Kiel in which we were taking part, 
appeared to be a great holiday occasion for a small, compara- 
tively well-to-do, class of Germans, who I believe had been in- 
structed by the Emperor to try to promote the sport, I gained 
the impression that the interest in yachting and, for that mat- 
ter, all sport, was shared by a very much smaller number of 
people in Germany than in this country, and I feel quite clear 
that their racing men have not attained anywhere near the 
perfection that is quite common in the best racing clubs in 
this country; moreover, there were comparatively few of the 
yachtsmen who had any proficiency at all. I think we all felt 

147 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

that the International Race played a very unimportant part 
in the general racing that was going on at Kiel, and that no- 
body in the country really cared or thought anything obout it. 
Many of us wondered if the interest would have been very 
much greater if the Germans had been winning. There was 
a considerable number of dinners and social occasions, which 
Mere entirely novel experiences to me, as well as to most, 
if not all, of our party. I think we all enjoyed them, and I 
certainly feel that we were royally entertained. At the close 
of the racing, our party broke up, and I spent a couple of 
weeks: visiting a few industrial organizations where iron 
pyrites was being used. My work at home here centres about 
the use of this commodity, and I was glad of the opportunity 
to learn what little I could of its use in the manufacture of 
sulphite pulp in Germany. I found it very difficult to gain 
access to the plants, but was able to pick up a certain amount 
of information from the managers, which was of use to me. 
They were willing to tell me certain things, but in most cases, 
unwilling to give me free access to the plants. On my return 
to this country, I took up my regular work, in which I have 
been continuously and absorbingly occupied since that time. 
This work consists of the production and sale of copper bear- 
ing pyrites, and the gradual development of a plant at West 
Norfolk, Va., for the extraction of the copper from the resi- 
dues. In the spring of 1913, I made a trip to Spain, and 
was fortunate in securing admission to two of the largest 
pyrites mines in the Huelva District, which mines are unques- 
tionably the largest producers of pyrites in the world. Be- 
sides the matters of technical interest to me, the trip con- 
tained a great deal of general interest, and I look back on it 
as one of the pleasantest of my many wanderings. The mines 
in themselves could not fail to be of interest even to non- 
technical persons, on account of their great antiquity. It is 
said that the largest one (the Rio Tinto Mine) which is now 
owned and controlled by English capital, was worked first 
in the time of the Phoenicians: then again by the Romans, and 
so on down to the present time almost without interruption. 
I returned through Madrid, where I enjoyed the hospitality 

148 



Biographical Sketches 

of Joe Camprabi's family. From Madrid, I went to Paris; 
thence to London and Glasgow ; back to Paris,and then home. 
In the fall of 1911, the Boston local section of the American 
Institute of Mining Engineers was organized, and I was elected 
secretary, in which capacity I served until 1914. A very small 
amount of my time during the last year, has been devoted to 
the Melones Mining Company, which I have had the pleasure 
of visiting with my father, who is the president of the com- 
pany. The mine is located in Calaveras County, California. I 
am now temporarily filling the position of treasurer of the 
company ,but this does not entail any very exacting duties. My 
recreation during these last five years has been much the 
same as in the preceding ten. I am as fond as ever of yacht- 
ing, horseback riding, tennis and skating, and hope that I may 
continue so. Member: Tennis and Racquet Club, Boston,

How fast time flies ! Our decennial anniversary seems but 
yesterday, and yet as I read over my own story in our class 
report of 1911, the events mentioned recall a life that seems 

149 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

almost of a different world, — so much have the pressing oc- 
cupations of the present crowded out of my thoughts the 
things that five years ago were but of yesterday. I have 
been busy, and I am glad of it. I have enjoyed it. During 
the last five years, my life has been much less varied than 
during the first years after college. I fear that I have con- 
fined myself more to the rut of my business ; but that rut 
has been wide enough for me to enjoy the work. In the fall 
of 1911, my partnership with Mr. Henry S. Thompson was 
expanded into a partnership with Philip Cabot and Henry 
S. Thompson, which carried on the business of developing 
water-powers. After one promising year, however, the 
partnership of Cabot, Thompson and Eustis was dissolved, 
when Thompson found an opening he liked better. With the 
breaking up of this partnership, my attention has centred 
more and more on metallurgical or mining problems. The 
operation and expansion of family properties have occupied 
most, but not all, of my time. I have particularly enjoyed 
being able to give some time to investigation of different 
metallurgical problems. In the spring of 1915, I wrote up 
the results of a long series of experiments in washing smelt- 
er smoke, which had been conducted by one of our family 
companies, and was fortunate in receiving from our Alma 
Mater for the paper the degree of S.D. I am now working 
on a complex nickel iron ore. Such investigations, which fit 
naturally into my work, are one of the pleasant features of 
it; but I enjoy most the constant association with active men, 
and the opportunity for competition which my business 
offers. It takes me frequently into the busy cities of our 
eastern coast: Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, 
AYashington and Norfolk; and the opportunities to meet the 
men in my line of business in these cities, and to keep in 
touch with what they are doing, and to compete with them 
furnish life's greatest interest. Of course, the travelling is 
irksome, and I often wish that I could fly, but for me that is 
not yet. I feel that I have had to specialize, and while the 
concentration on special matters is most interesting, I re- 
gret, and try to fight against, the narrowing of my field. I 

150

try to keep a little in touch with the many activities that 
aim co improve conditions about us, the associations that 
work for the many changes that we so much need, — the dif- 
ferent schools and the charities. My preference would be 
to place first the work that aims to improve our government ; 
but circumstances have forced before me the schools of the 
South that are beginning to teach the negroes of the South 
to help themselves by teaching them how to work. I have 
met no finer people anywhere than those who are giving 
their lives to this work. I honor them, and I have enjoyed my 
slight association with them. I have been able to travel for 
pleasure some, having spent one summer in Norway, and one 
spring in Jamaica and eastern Cuba. For recreation, the 
simple pleasures of home, and the country and seashore, are 
my main reliance ; but I still can enjoy a good dance and a 
good play. Member: Harvard Club of Boston, Harvard

fishing on Cataline Island, Cal. Continued in tea and 
coffee business in St. Louis, Mo., until September, 1911, and 
then resigned to accept position as Northwestern representa- 
tive of Carter, Macy and Company, New York City, tea im- 
porters, making my headquarters in St. Paul. Minn. In 1914 
I spent six months in Japan as assistant buyer for my firm, 
returning to St. Paul, Minn., late in 1914 to continue my 
work in the Northwest. While living in St. Louis, Mo., I 
took an active interest in rowing as a member of the Century 
and Mound City Boat Clubs, during the years 1901-1911, 
inclusive. In 1909-1910 was successful in bringing James 
Wray, late Harvard coach, to St. Louis for the summer 
months, which improved rowing methods and conditions there. 
Since removing to St. Paul the nature of my business has 
prevented further interest in rowing, but has afforded much 
opportunity for travel in the United States, Canada and 
Japan. Member: Yokohama Club, Yokohama, Japan.

keeping the omnipresent wolf from the portal. His bark has 
sometimes been heard but thus far he has not been able to 
insert his head. My intention was to teach school, but after 
some experience in night schools I decided that I was not 
temperamentally fitted for the work and I obtained a posi-

1911, after 10 years' service, I sought for and was pleased 
to get a transfer to the United States Customs Service as 
inspector, a position which I continue to hold and with which 
I am quite content. During my term of office in the Weather 
Bureau I delivered a few talks and lectures on meteorological 
matters and wrote an article occasionally for the daily papers. 
As a whole I have not had a very eventful life and would pre- 
fer the shadow to the spotlight. I will close with a short 
quotation from Pope which always appealed to me and which 
I have tried to follow as closely as possible: 

"Honor and shame from no condition rise, 
Act well your part ; there all the honor lies. ' '

Having completed the necessary courses for my A.B. de- 
gree at the mid-year examinations of my senior year, and 
having obtained leave of absence from the college authorities, 
I went abroad, visited Morocco, Spain, Italy, France, Eng- 
land, and returned home in the summer of 1901. In the 
autumn of 1901 I entered business as a clerk in the employ 
of the Waltham Watch Company. After spending three 
months in the Montreal office, nine months in the Chicago 
office, and one year in the London office of that company I 
was transferred to the home office at Waltham, where I have 
been ever since. In course of time I became assistant to the 
president and in 1911 I was elected director, vice-president 
and general manager of the Waltham Watch Company, which 
position I now hold. Since graduation, the most important 
events in my life have been my marriage and the arrival on 
the scene of my three children. My principal aims consist in

Address 3-' f Babcock St., Brookline, Mass. 

Postgraduate study, foreign travel, and teaching have oc- 
cupied most of my time since leaving college. The first two 
years I spent in Washington at the Catholic University of 
America on graduate studies, chiefly philosophy and Eng- 
lish. In the summer of 1903 I made an extended tour of 
Europe in company with my two brothers, visiting Germany, 
Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, England and Ireland. 
In September I returned to the University in Cambridge for 
my A.M. degree, which I took the following June (1904). 
I then went to Europe for two years, devoted to study of the 
Fine Arts. The first winter I was in London and Oxford, 
working in the museums and libraries. I spent the spring 
(1905) in Florence and the summer in Siena. The following 
year was given largely to travel and study in Mediterranean 
lands. I visited Naples and Sicily in the winter, Greece, 
Crete, and Constantinople in the spring (1906) and returned 
to Italy for the early summer. For the rest of the year, 
until my return home in September, I was engaged in study- 
ing at the chateaux and cathedrals of France. Before my 
return I was appointed assistant in the department of Fine 
Arts at Harvard. I began teaching when college opened in 
September, 1906. The following year I was appointed Austin 
teaching fellow. I gave a course in the Summer School of 
1907, after which I spent the remainder of the vacation in 
England. In the spring of 1908 I was appointed instructor 
in Fine Arts. After our marriage in July, 1908, my wife and 
I travelled in western and southern France until time to re- 
turn for the re-opening of college. The summer of 1911 I 
spent in Spain. Returning to Cambridge, I continued teach- 
ing until the close of college, 1912, when I took my family 
to Europe for two years' residence in England, France and 
Italy. We did all our travelling, some 13,000 miles, by au- 
tomobile, including two trips south to the Mediterranean

and along the Riviera to Pisa and Florence, and two return 
journeys over the Alps, through France, to England. Trav- 
elling in this way afforded the ideal combination of pleasur- 
able recreation, with the opportunities for visiting places of 
interest and studying the collections and monuments along 
the way. When the war broke out in August, 1914, we had 
fortunately returned to England, where we experienced no 
particular discomfort excepting the uncertainties attendant 
upon securing return passage to America,

[ was never much of an athlete — still less a student. For 
three years I labored faithfully in vain to make almost 
every team Harvard produced, while father paid the bills 
less and less patiently. I registered in all the "cinch" 
courses in the curriculum, and passed examination in some. 
Painfully shy, and knowing only my roommate when I en- 
tered with a class of 1800 strangers, I became very fond of 
the theatre in Boston, and the beautiful surrounding coun- 
try through which I enthusiastically walked, bicycled and 
skated. I soon owned a canoe on the Charles, and not long 
after made frequent excursions as far as "Wellesley. Hugo 
Parton and Jerry Hatch were my beaux ideal. It was at a 
suggestion of father's, forcibly expressed, and I imagine 
with the faculty's heartfelt relief, that I left this pleasant 
life, and with bag, baggage, and bicycle, descended upon 
New York City in quest of fortune more than fame, in June 
of 1900. It was hard to leave those of my class whom I had 
known, many of whom I have not seen since. And I have 
never quite forgotten any of them. I always had more sen- 
timent than sense, which is expensive. Landing in New 
York with twelve dollars and unlimited inexperience, luck 
led me to the Brooklyn Rapid Transit office where I secured 

163 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

a job as typewriter. After a few months, I was promoted to 
investigator of accidents, and later assistant claim agent. I 
had a hall bedroom near Piel's brewery; and on Sundays I 
listened to the band concerts in Prospect Park, bathed at 
Brighton Beach, and "did" Coney Island. My next job, 
collecting rent for the McVickar Realty Company, took me 
across the river to Manhattan in the tenement districts of 
the East side, from Houston Street to Brooklyn Bridge. 
Passionately fond of the water I spent many happy hours 
wandering among the tall-sparred ships moored along the 
river front, watching the discharge of their odd cargoes 
from many foreign ports, to all of which the smell of tar and 
babel of strange tongues lent the glamor of Stevenson's 
romance. I then became assistant advertising manager for 
the Siegel-Cooper department store, the "Meet me at the 
Fountain" emporium. With 72 departments to write ad- 
vertising for continually, I found it extremely hard work, 
although the pay was good. In a short time I had not a new 
idea left to put into print. Then I would go out to Van 
Cortland Park for a round of golf, or admire the lions at 
the Bronx Zoo. From this I drifted as advertising solicitor 
to the "American Queen", a woman's household magazine 
with offices on Union Square. Tiring of the big city, I re- 
turned to my home town and for three years worked at the 
Erie City Iron Works as machinist, engine tester, boiler 
maker, draughtsman, and office assistant. Then I decided to 
go into business for myself, and built a factory where I manu- 
factured stationery, dress and toilet articles from mother of 
pearl and other shell imported from Africa, Japan, etc. In 
three years my business lost nearly $18,000. So I sold the 
machinery, rented the factory, and became a cow puncher 
on a Wyoming ranch. I also prospected for copper ore in 
the Rattle Snake Range of the Rockies. Then I returned 
to Erie and opened a stock and bond brokerage office as cor- 
respondent of Spencer Trask and Company, of New York. 
After the panic and hard times came I turned to local real 
estate mortgages, in the brokerage of which I have now

specialized. I helped organize two divisions of the Penn- 
sylvania Naval Reserve at Erie, and, as lieutenant, have, at 
various times, been ordered by the Navy Department to 
Newport, New York, Philadelphia and Hampton Roads, 
where detailed as junior officer on battleships, scout cruisers, 
and a submarine, I have sailed for practice cruises, battle 
and target practice. In October, 1913, I was detailed to the 
U. S. S. Florida, attached to the Atlantic fleet, when it 
sailed from Hampton Roads for a Mediterranean cruise. 
Landing at Naples 15 days later, I had 19 days shore leave, 
during which I saw most of Italy, part of Switzerland, and a 
bit of France. In March, 1914, I sailed from New York on 
the Hamburg American liner Cincinnati for Naples. On 
board I met a girl and her brother, who was an architect, 
who were on their way to study the art of Italy. They 
agreed to join a party of my friends which I was to meet at 
Naples, and we began together the study of medieval his- 
tory, cathedrals and fleas. From Naples we spent some 
weeks in Rome, and then motored to Florence, by way of 
Orvieto and Siena; then to Milan. Lake Como, Lucerne, In- 
terlachen, and up through Dresden, Munich and Berlin to 
Brussels and Antwerp, sailing from Rotterdam for New York. 
By the end of that summer the lady had agreed to darn my 
socks and share my salary and sorrows; so we were mar- 
ried at Cooperstown, N. Y. And nothing much has hap- 
pened ever since. I have written: Sermons on Home Cook-

to Cambridge for my degree. In July, 1901, I became chemist 
for South Chicago Furnace Company, iron manufacturers. In 
September, 1902, I became blast furnace apprentice at Il- 
linois Steel Company plant at South Chicago. In January, 
1903, my furnace exploded, killing some of us, and my 
father persuaded me to leave the position on the ground that 
an only son had no right to assume the risk. I went into 
my father's office and loafed for six months. In September, 

1903, I obtained a job as laborer at the Waukegan, 111., plant 
of the North Shore Gas Company, in which my father was 
the principal stockholder, and learned something of the 
manufacturing end of the business. In July, 1904, I became

After law school, my interest in boys' club work brought 
me the acquaintance of James J. Storrow. an old Harvard 
man and a good citizen of Boston, who financed my plans 
for a boys' club house and put me in charge of it. So for 
ten years I have been trying to pass around some good Har- 
vard gospel among the boys of the "West End House and 
have helped to turn the steps of many fine fellows toward 
our college. Perhaps a boy or two is today a wee bit better 
man because of the "West End House. And at the same time, 
I was trying to practise law and save enough out of it to 
support my wife and growing family. Their needs and that 
practice have grown and have eaten away my time for per- 
sonal work with the other fellow's boy. From now on, I 
hope to see more of my own boys. It is my intention to slip 
in a little Harvard spirit with their breakfast food, and 
maybe they will get to college, and if God is good, they will

Occupation Minister. 

Address - Eliot Circle, Milton, Mass. 

After graduating from Harvard I entered the Rochester 
Theological Seminary, Rochester, N. Y. During my semi- 
nary course I did missions work and some evangelistic work, 
and the last year in the seminary was pastor of the Carter 
Street Mission, a branch of the Second Baptist Church of 
Rochester. I received a call to the pastorate of the First 
Baptist Church of Rumford Falls, Me., in the fall of 1904, 
and was ordained in that church January 12, 1905. The 
greatest event of my Rumford Falls pastorate was meeting 
Miss Pickering, of Bangor, Me., which resulted in marriage. 
From Rumford Falls I went to Skowhegan, Me., as pastor 
of the First Baptist Church, and from there to Manchester- 
by-the-Sea, Mass., where I became pastor of the First Bap- 
tist Church. While at Manchester, I had occasion to solicit 
funds from the summer residents to help reconstruct the

church building and put in a new pipe organ. I found my 
being a Harvard man was a help. Many of those I met and 
who gave assistance were Harvard men or were kindly dis- 
posed to a man who was a Harvard man. From Manchester 
I went to the pastorate of the Worthen Street Baptist 
Church of Lowell, and from Lowell I came to the Mattapan 
Baptist Church where I am located at present. The fall of 
1914 I started to give drama sermons once a month at my 
church. These are impersonated sermons. They have 
proved a distinct innovation in the method of preaching and 
they are very attractive to those who have in many cases 
been indifferent to the call of the Church. I have given these 
sermons successfully not only in my own church but in other 
churches and I use them also in evangelistic work. A pas- 
tor's life is a varied and a busy one. In addition to my 
church duties I go out once in a while to conduct special 
evangelistic meetings in other churches. At present I am 
one of the evangelists associated with the Evangelistic As- 
sociation of New England. I also take an interest in the 
work of the Evangelical Alliance of Greater Boston, and 
serve as one of the directors of that organization. Member:

practised for nearly four years in Green Bay, Wis. Then I 
came back to Boston, and practised there for three years and 
a half, having my office in the Exchange Building, 53 State 
Street. Then I came to New York to be the editor of the 
Peoples ' Magazine, from that went to the Munsey Company, 
and from there to act as literary editor of Good Housekeep- 
ing Magazine. After a year of that, I left editorial work 
and since then have been giving all my time to writing 
fiction and special articles. My family and I spent the past 
eighteen months in a bungalow I have on the shore of the 
Bras d'Or Lakes, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Can. There 
I finished another novel and a lot of short stories. The coun- 
try is a paradise in the summer and a marvel in the winter, 
for it is only sixty miles south of Newfoundland, and we 
had seventy miles of pack ice off the coast in the middle of 
May. But the lakes, almost shut off as they are from the sea, 
were clear of ice by the middle of April, and after that we 
had blue water again until we left, late this fall. The 
spruce covers all the land. In the winter we lost the deep 
green of the spruce under feet of snow. Then what they 
call an easterly, a mighty gale from the northeast, came to 
us and blew for weeks steady as a trade wind, and bared our 
thirty miles of clear ice for us to skate on. We skated a great 
deal, — got our supplies by skating a mile and a half to the 
town for them ; and we did a stack of ice-boating and snow- 
shoeing. Until then I had never seen the Northern Lights and 
the moon and stars reflected in the ice, and it was indescribably 
lovely. To get material for stories, I worked as a member 
of a wrecking crew, and helped build an "ice breaker", 
which the ice broke promptly. Now we are back in civiliza- 
tion again. It has many compensations; but the freedom of 
the open has a glory and a charm all its own. I look back 
with gratitude to the winter we spent in the North, and hope 
ultimately to have another there. Doubleday, Page and 
Company published my first novel, The Man Between, in 
1913. I have sold about one hundred and fifty short stories, 
novelettes, special articles, etc., to magazines including The 
American Magazine, The Metropolitan, The World's Work,

Biographical Sketches 

Within a few days after graduation, in company with sev- 
eral other "One" men, John Jennings. Gene Douglass, Billy 
Hill, Leo Logan, Louis Bonelli and Jack O'Donnell, I started 
for the Philippines, a member of the first expeditionary 
force of teachers sent out by this government to instill into 
the natives the principles of civilization. After a year and 
a half there, crammed full of interesting experiences, in- 
cluding a trip to Japan and China, I developed an illness 
which forced me to return to the United States. Speaking 
of my own sickness recalls the terrific epidemic of Asiatic 
cholera which swept over the islands in 1902 during which 
Jack O'Donnell, alone, and at his post, died of the disease 
there amongst the natives whom he was serving, — a worthy 
son of "One", indeed, and a man whose memory we should 
not forget. After several weeks' recuperation at home, I be- 
gan to look for a job, finally landing one with a local (Bos- 
ton) steel company at the magnificent salary of $5.00 per. 
This proved to be not especially exciting; and when there 
came an opportunity to go to work for a railroad construc- 
tion firm in Alabama which was building a section of the 
Seaboard Air Line from Birmingham to Atlanta, I accepted 
promptly. Life in the Philippines had been exciting, but 
was nothing as compared with the experiences I had in the 
mountains of southern Alabama, where gun-play was an al- 
most daily occurrence, and human life held to be of small 
value. All the while, though, I was pining to get into medi- 
cal work ; so, after six months in the South, I gave up there 
and came North. As it was in December, and too late in 
the year to gain admission to the Harvard Medical School, 
I decided to waste no more time, and so went up to Bruns- 
wick, Me., and entered the Bowdoin Medical School. At the 
end of two years there, during the last of which I taught 
pathology, I transferred to the Harvard Medical School, and 
was graduated in 1907. That fall I went into the Massa- 
chusetts General Hospital as a surgical interne, remaining 
there until March 31, 1909. I immediately opened an office 
in the South End, which I occupied until September 1, 1910.

My next move was to Commonwealth Avenue, where for the 
next four years I was associated with Dr. Farfar Cobb as his 
assistant. In the fall of 1914, I left Dr. Cobb and opened my 
present office. In 1912, I was appointed consulting surgeon 
to the Whidden Memorial Hospital, Everett, Mass. ; in 1914 
was elected president of District 16 Conference of the Bos- 
ton Associated Charities, and re-elected in the fall of 1915 ; 
in April, 1915, I was commissioned first lieutenant in the 
Medical Corps of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, and 
attached to the Coast Artillery Corps; I have held three six 
months' appointments at the Boston City Hospital as fourth 
assistant visiting surgeon ; on January 1, 1916, I was ap-

After graduation I remained in Cambridge one year in

In 1903 I was engaged as private secretary by the American 
Minister to Brazil, and served in the legation at Petropolis, 
Brazil, for six months, after which I entered the Consulate- 
General at Rio de Janeiro in a subordinate capacity. In the 
spring of 1904, shortly after the outbreak of the Russo- 
Japanese War, I was transferred to Japan, where I served for 
a year and a half as vice-consul, first at Nagasaki and later 
at Kobe. At the close of the war. in the fall of 1905, I was 
appointed commercial agent of the United States at Vladi- 
vostok, Siberia, where for six months I was in charge of 
Japanese interests, pending the return of Japanese consular 
,vV.o r * to ">; '\ In 1907 I was transferred to Dairen, the 
Japanese port in South Manchuria, as consul, and after a 
'ere, to Harbin, the Russian railway centre 
in North Manchuria, where I witnessed the great epidemic 
of pneumonic plague in the winter of 1910-1911. These six 
years in northeastern Asia gave me a somewhat unique op- 
portunity to observe the conflict between Russian, Japanese 
and Chinese interests in that part of the world, from the 
point of view of each of the nations concerned. In the fall 
of 1911, I was appointed consul-general at Hankow, in Cen- 
tral China, and arrived there just before the outbreak of the 
revolution which overthrew the Manchu dynasty. In the 
spring of 1914, I was given a special leave of absence to ac- 
company, in a journey through China, a commission sent out 
by the Rockefeller Foundation to investigate medical condi- 
tions in that country and to report upon the desirability of 
undertaking some systematic work for the improvement of 
those conditions. Upon presentation of the commission's re- 
port, the foundation decided to undertake the work and 
formed for this purpose an organization called the China

Medical Board of the Rockefeller Foundation. In consider- 
ing plans for this work, it seemed desirable to have in China 
a representative of the board to report upon the various 
projects in which the board was interested, and in other 
ways to assist in carrying out the plans which had been 
adopted. I w T as appointed to this position in November, 
1914, with the title of resident director in China. I had, in 
the meantime, definitely severed my connection with the 
state department, under which I had that summer been ap- 
pointed consul-general-at-large, or inspector of consulates,, 
for the Far East. I came to China and established my head- 
quarters at Peking, in August, 1915. I find my new work 
extremely interesting, but we have been such a short time in 
the field that I have little to report, other than to say that 
our main efforts at first are being directed towards improv- 
ing medical education. With this in view, we are reorgan- 
izing and strengthening an existing school in Peking, estab- 
lished by a union of missionary societies, and hope to assist 
in the development of one or more other medical schools and 
of hospitals in various parts of the country. I have written : 
Annual trade reports on Vladivostok, Dalny, Harbin, and

Five days after commencement day in 1901, Messrs. Stone 
and "Webster, of Boston, constructing engineers and managers 
of electric railway, efl metric Lighting, gas and water-power 
companies in various parts of the United States, came to 
my rescue by giving me a job as an office boy. The present 
finds me in the same firm. On January 1, 1912, I was ad- 
mitted to partnership. Outside of business, my chief interests 
and problems consist of four children, the three eldest of 
whom are constantly in training for the activities of the 
University; the fourth will endeavor to make her brothers 
travel the straight and narrow path. Other interests have been 
my very pleasant associations with the Class of 1901 as treas- 
urer and chairman of the class committee, and as treasurer 
of the Harvard Alumni Association and the Harvard Alumni 
Bulletin for a number of years. Since its organization in 
1908, I have enjoyed a close relationship with the Harvard 
Varsity Club as a member of the executive committee, and 
nothing has contributed more to keeping me young at least 
in spirit as this association with the undergraduate athlete.

I do not know of anything in connection either with my 
life or my work that would make necessary or justify any 
addition to the sketch submitted five years ago. At any rate 
I am five years older. I am holding the same position that I 
held five years ago although I did have an offer to take- 
charge of similar work in Kansas City, Mo., at a slightly 
higher salary; but I thought it wiser to bear present ills 
than to fly to others unknown. I have added nothing to my 
published works, unless I anticipate an essay submitted in 
a prize contest some months since; but as all the articles 
were said to be so superior, mine included, the judges have 
not as yet awarded me the prize. In connection with my 
work, however, I have published a series of syllabi on the 
courses offered by my school. As a further diversion, a few 
years ago, I revived an old dream of invention and wealth r 
had one patent issued ; another allowed ; made sundry other 
models more or less patentable ; spent more than enough 
money to carry me to the quindecennial and back with a 
surplus, and am still calmly waiting for the realization. I

My story is uneventful. After practising law in Boston, 
two years in the office of Brandeis, Dunbar and Nutter, and 
six months for myself, I moved to New York where I was 
soon admitted to the firm of Gallert and Heilborn, of which 
I am still a member. We have represented the Department 
of Remedial Loans of the Russell Sage Foundation in its 
campaign against the loan shark and the result has been the 
practical elimination of the loan shark from his practices 
in Xew York County. In connection with that work I was 
appointed a deputy assistant district attorney in New York 
County, which position I held until December 31, 1915, from 
January 12, 1914. I was in charge of the usury bureau. 
Tn connection with that work I assisted in drafting penal 
and remedial legislation. With the success of Tammany, I 
nn longer occupy official position and devote all my time 
to my private practice. Member : Phi Beta Kappa, New York

jects for sanitary products but not enough capital or team- 
work to pull it through. My interest in machinery was de- 
veloped while there in the erection of refrigerating plants 
and other complex apparatus. Then I was for a short time 
only in the wholesale and manufacturing embroidery busi- 
ness in New York ; but my fondness for machinery and inde- 
pendence led me to purchase a small factory (in Philadel- 
phia), making in small quantities a very poor product. The 
idea of starting small but absolutely independently and 
with a chance to develop along mechanical lines appealed to 
me strongly and for the past nine years I have had my hands 
full. When I began I employed four men. Now I have 
twenty, and at times thirty. Since a year or two my friends 
are beginning to realize that the enterprise has justified it- 
self; but from the start the work itself has been sufficient 
justification to me. I have been in Europe four times, twice 
in connection with my present business. I have a number 
of patents on appliances which I make and have some pend- 
ing now on a machine for the rapid production of military 
rifle stocks and other irregular shapes. I trust that the cen- 
sor will do his duty with the above material, as I regret that 
my post-college life has till now little in it likely to interest 
my classmates. Member : City Club of Philadelphia, Frank-

After graduation, I spent one year in the Graduate 
School and the following year was instructor in mining in 
Harvard University. In the summer of 1903 I went to the 
silver-gold mining camp of Tonopah, Nevada, where T got 
a job as a miner, and left, when engineer of two companies 
the following year, to take a job as superintendent of some 
gold property in South Carolina for Fred and Gus Eustis of 
our class. Later I was assistant superintendent at a mine 
in which they are interested in Canada. In 1906 I went 
back to Tonopah, Nevada, as chief engineer and geologist 
for three of the mines, and a few months later was made 
superintendent for two of the properties. Early in 1908 I 
went with the Goldfield Consolidated Mines Company, in 
Goldfield, Nevada, and was general superintendent in 1909- 
1910. Since 1911 I have been engaged in consulting work 
with my office in New York City, and have made frequent 
trips to various parts of the United States, Canada, Mexico, 
Central America and Cuba in connection with mining, part 
of the time being associated with the Mines Management

In July, 1901, after a hard struggle not to be turned down 
on account of lack of practical experience I was appointed to 
take charge of the development of a copper mine at Terrazas, 
Chihuahua, by Mr. H. L. Hollis, of Chicago. In the summer 
of 1902 I was transferred to the Cubo Mining and Milling 
Company, of Guanajuato, by Mr. Hollis, and there I have 
done the major part of my mining work. I began in Guana- 
juato as engineer and occupied positions as mine superintend- 
ent, mill superintendent, and general superintendent. In 

1904 I returned to Somerville to be married to Luella Parker 
Winship, whom I had met during my last year at college. 
I returned with her to Guanajuato, and our first son was born 
at the Cubo Mine in December of 1904. In the summer of 

1905 I resigned my position in Guanajuato, and returned to 
Somerville. Then followed a period of migrations including 
Sonora, Mexico, Costa Rica, California. Nevada, and finally, 
in January, 1910, I returned to Guanajuato as general super- 
intendent of the Cubo Mining and Milling Company. There 
I have remained ever since, excepting those times when for 
political reasons the Americans had to leave the country. My 
wife and children have been sent to the United States and 
have come back so many times that their journeys can be 
compared to a shuttle. Yes, in 1914 after the taking of 
Vera Cruz by the United States naval forces we were among 
the "refugees" and went from Guanajuato to Vera Cruz dur- 
ing the midst of the excitement. That is -a, story in itself, 
but suffice it to say that we were scared, thoroughly and com- 
pletely, and it made an impression on my elder boy that he 
will never overcome. I returned to Guanajuato only a week 
ago after seven months in the States waiting for the situa- 
tion in Mexico to clear, and now I am back here, and the 
same old questions are coming up every day. We. are at-

For the last fifteen years my time has been largely spent 
in observing the follies and foibles of this old world of ours. 
At first, obeying the common human impulse, I made a few 
attempts in the direction of human ambition, known to the 
elect, as getting on; then, perceiving the utter vanity of all 
things human, I desisted and am now following the role of a 
detached philosopher. My pursuit of things now is, indeed, 
of the highest inasmuch as it consists in the highly laudable 
ambition of scaling mountain peaks. That is the be-all and 
end-all of existence for me, at present; but, should the turn

Since I was graduated from the Harvard Law School in 
1903, I have been engaged in the general practice of law in 
New York City. This simple statement of my activities com- 
prises thirteen years of the strenuous life which has carried 
me all over our own country and to many places abroad. It 
is often true of the general practice of law what General 
Sherman said of war. That is what prevents it from becom- 
ing monotonous. You never can tell where your case may 
blow up. Trench warfare has nothing on those sappers and 
miners of the law, who undermine your legal defences or 
attack your position with burning liquid fire of hot-air ora- 
tory. There is still a lot of that. It is both offensive and de- 
fensive — chiefly the former. In many a legal conflict I have 
encountered fellow sons of Harvard, and a truce has invaria- 
bly been declared, while we talked over "the good old days" 
and learned with pride of the achievements of some class- 
mate which brings home the truth of the old saying, "That

Up to January 1, 1915, all my spare time was occupied in

of hemorrhage and transfusion, the effects of many kinds of 
stimuli on the brain cells, development of material tending to 
show the presence in the body of a so-called "kinetic" group 
of organs (i.e. those most immediately concerned with the 
transformation of latent into kinetic energy), and, most par- 
ticularly, the application of all these data to securing as 
nearly a shockless surgical technic as possible. The studies 
of brain-cell changes and of the kinetic organs, lasting 
over several years, are shortly to be published by Dr. Crile

practitioner. On May 22, 1915, at Atlantic City, the most 
thrilling event of my life occurred in the form of a trip in 
an aeroplane two thousand feet above the surface of the land 
and sea at a speed of from thirty to ninety miles an hour, 
according as we went with or against the thirty-mile wind. In 
these days such an event is of so common happening that it 
would hardly be worth recording if it were not for the per- 
sonal reaction produced. As long as I live I shall recall the 
olive-green salt marshes spread with the silver tracery of large 
and small water channels, the toy-like boats, the moving dots 
on the land that I knew must be people, and above all, the 
glorious rush which the aeroplane made as we volplaned down 
at a speed of about one hundred and ten miles an hour from 
the two thousand foot level, — a rush which ended safely on 
the surface of the water. A second flight added to the 
wonder of the first one, but first experiences come only once. 
I defy any human being to experience for the first time what 
men have dreamed of doing for as long as they have matched 
birds in flight, and be blase about it! Member: American

is always an adventurous, and sometimes highly dangerous,

It is especially interesting to a Harvard man to learn by 
inside experience the merits, etc., of some of our honorable 
rivals. I have written a book: The Meaning of God in

interesting to technical students. Some of them are put to-

and assistant chief draughtsman for the Kidder Press Com- 
pany, Dover, N. H., manufacturers of printing presses, paper 
handling machinery and special machinery. In 1905 and 1906 
I was mechanical engineer and chief draughtsman for the

turned in 1906 to the Kidder Press Company, where as oc- 
casion required I served in the capacity of designing engi-

After leaving Harvard as a result of illness I entered the

enabled me to enter the junior year in the University of Ala-

pected to practise my profession of mining engineer in the 
South. Once more, however, I was compelled to leave college 
as a result of illness. The following ten years were spent in 
a battle with ill health. During this time and in recent years 
I have devoted much time to the study of philosophy. I have 
made some original investigations along this line and I am now 
engaged in writing up the one discovery which appears to me 
to be of some permanent value. The title of my book is ' ' The 
Creative Absolute ' \ and its purpose is to resolve the antinomy 
which this title appears to contain. I have also made certain 
investigations of a mechanical nature and have applied for 
letters patent on a multiple-drum gas floor furnace. I have 
written: The Government, the Trusts, and the Workingman

moved to Washington, and did not take an active part in 
business. He was tremendously interested, however, in golf, 
and the game both in this country and in England became 
not only a hobby but a study. He played both in America, 
and in England and Scotland, where he was a member of the

Class op 1901 — Fourth Report 

In September, 1901, I was hired as a substitute teacher in 
the Somerville Latin School, taking the classes in prepara- 
tion for Harvard in Latin, algebra and geometry, — classes 
usually taught by my own revered preparatory teacher, Miss 
Sarah W. Fox, who had a year's leave of absence for travel 
in Europe. The growth of the school the next fall permit- 
ted my retention ; so that I have been able to settle in my 
native town and teach for fifteen years consecutively in my 
own high school. I have considered myself fortunate in 
having classes year after year fitting for Harvard and Rad- 
cliffe and the other colleges, in the subjects: Latin, Greek, 
German, plane and solid geometry and algebra. In 1904 I 
was promoted to be sub-master, and for ten years had the 
pleasure of working under Dr. George L. Baxter of the class 
of 1865. At the combination of the Somerville Latin School 
and English High School to form one Somerville High School 
in 1911, on the retirement of Dr. Baxter, I was made head 
of the German and Greek departments, working together 
thus with three of our women teachers who were my own 
former instructors. In the summer of 1913 I travelled in 
Europe for the second time, visiting principally Holland, 
Switzerland and Germany, staying for one month at Frei- 
burg in Baden. This trip has proved very helpful in my 
teaching of German, especially as I made close observations 
of the scenes in Schiller's "William Tell." I am a member of 
the Somerville Harvard Club, and have the opportunity of 
knowing personally the boys for whom we recommend the 
club's annual scholarship of $100. The time that most men 
devote perhaps to club-life I have turned rather to the activi- 
ties of my early church home where I have a class of twenty 
young women in Sunday School and act as chairman of the 
church executive committee.

After my graduation I spent a year at the Rochester 
Theological Institution, Rochester, N. Y., and then went to 
the University of Chicago, where I received my B.D. de- 
gree. During my divinity course I had summer pastorates 
at Danbury, N. H., and Meredith, N. H. I also served as 
assistant pastor of the Fourth Baptist Church of Chicago, 
where I was ordained April 17th, 1904. My first regular 
settlement was at North Billerica, Mass., a small mill town, 
where most of my parish was made up of English and 
Scotch woolen workers. After four and a half years of 
happy work in personal touch with our great industrial 
problem, I accepted a call to another industrial community, 
Framingham, Mass., where I am still residing, as pastor of 
the Park Street Baptist Church. With each year I find an 
ever widening field of service. When I entered Harvard 
the ministry had never occurred to me as my life-work. As 
the result of an experience which Winston Churchill has 
so vividly described in A Far Country, I came to a con- 
viction that I ought to enter the ministry. If Hugh Paret, 
Churchill's character, had entered the chapel at that crisis 
in his career, his whole life would have been different. With 
grateful heart for guidance into a life-work that brings me 
daily joy and the assurance that life is worth living when 
lived in service for mankind in the spirit of Jesus Christ, I 
send greetings to all the friends of 1901.

Class op 1001 — Fourth Report 

five years, if not of my life since graduation, was my sab- 
batical year, which extended from July, 1911, until Septem- 
ber, 1912. In July I went with my wife to Newfoundland 
to collect lichens, returning in time to sail August 1, for 
England. We spent the summer in Normandy, going to 
Paris in September, where I entered the Sorbonne. I spent 
the winter in completing "in residence" my work for a doc- 
tor's degree on lichenological research, published my thesis, 
and received the degree of Docteur de l'Universite (in Natu- 
ral Science) in the spring. We lived in the Latin quarter, 
and while I studied my wife and small daughter enjoyed the 
wonders of Paris. Outside of my family I saw most of Rus- 
sell Greeley, who painted, God bless him! an oil canvas of 
my wife which is as refined in setting and soft in coloring 
as his early work for the class gave promise. The portrait 
has been universally admired. I spent many pleasant hours 
with Professor W. M. Davis, then exchange professor at the 
Sorbonne, and attended the Yale dinner of the Harvard Club 
of Paris which had its birth that year. We returned directly 
to London where I spent six weeks in further botanical study 
at the British Museum of Natural History. On our voyage 
home the ship ran out of coal and we proceeded to Halifax 
under half steam. The other three events that are of in- 
terest to me in my quiet country life, that may be worth 
recording, was first the birth last May of a son, secondly my 
withdrawal from partnership in the boys' summer camp 
known as South Pond Cabins, and lastly my appointment to 
the secretaryship of the Middlesex School. During the last 
two years, only by the most constant and painstaking care by 
Dr. George C. Shattuck, my health, which was seriously af- 
fected by overwork in Paris, has been restored to its normal 
frailty. I am therefore enjoying to the utmost my work at 
Middlesex. As house master of Hallow T ell House, which bears 
the name of Colonel Hallowell, whose place on the Board of 
Trustees his son and our classmate now holds, I feel sur- 
rounded with the Harvard spirit and that of Nineteen-hnndred 
and one. Continually in touch with the university through 
our graduates and my interest in rowing, I fail to mark the

School with the class of 1905 and received my degree in June, 
1905. In September of that year I entered the office of Hurl- 
burt, Jones and Cabot. For the first two years I went 
through the usual cub lawyer routine which consisted of 
carrying the papers and taking notes in court, at the same 
time endeavoring to learn by observation the way to try 
cases. In my third year of practice I began trying cases and 
my work in the law has developed along the lines of a trial 
counsel, although I am able to mix with the tedium of trials 
a reasonable amount of general office practice. In January,

Biographical Sketches 

I wish I knew how to make my life interesting to my 
classmates. But it is a most uneventful life, — that of a col- 
lege professor, studying and teaching, and trying to pay 
bills. What I find in the realms of gold cannot always be 
converted into current coin, acceptable to the butcher, the 
baker, the candlestick-maker. You know there is a pretty 
general feeling that a professorship, like virtue, should be 
its own reward. Having said all of this, I suspect I stand 
forth as one of the most sordid members of the class of 1901. 
But this isn't so. I care for wealth only because it enables 
one to purchase experience for class reports. I could have 
gotten along without the money, of course, if I had the sense 
and courage to be a stout vagabond or a sturdy beggar, in- 
stead of a valetudinarian teacher. Then I could have fur- 
nished what we scholars call "material". Member: Modern

Upon leaving college the suoe manufacturing world de- 
manded me and I penetrated its mysteries from top facing 
to outersole. Was with the first concern some ten years, 
during which time I attended my wedding and established the 
family seat in Hingham. Was called to another shoe house 
which had noticed my 1901 brand of ability, but in about a 
year found that the call didn't listen very good to me in that 
particular spot, so, still hearkening to the siren tones of the 
shoe trade I followed it to Lynn and moved my family seat, 
root and branch (two branches by this time), to Nahant, a 
lovely place in summer, but oh, you winter! "About this 
time," as the almanacs say, I became acquainted with the 
possibilities of the metal stamping game. This was in 1912, 

249

and, in company with a 1897 man who was a good scout in 
spite of his inferior "class," bought into the game. Have 
been sitting in ever since, though behind a little at times, and, 
as the cards are running pretty well, guess I'll stick in. Dur- 
ing my early business career, I found that my physical 
measurements were eminently adapted to the dimensions of a 
Pullman berth; so I have devoted my activities to the selling 
end. Therefore I have travelled up and down and across 
these United States frequently, not to say often. Last winter 
it was my good fortune to observe at close range several of 
our members at their leisure on the world-renowned, to hear 
them tell it, Pacific Coast. To them I touted the quinde- 
cennial, as I felt in duty bound. If they don't come, it will 
not be because of lack of funds for they are all prosperous. 
In Los Angeles all the traffic cops touched their hats to an- 
other 1901 man and myself as we went down the main street. 
That's how 1901 is looked upon there. This 1901 man was a 
"native son," meaning that he had lived there over a year. 
I am proud of the fact that I have always been a National 
Leaguer. Never have I seen any reason to flop to the Red 
Sox, even in those days when an 1899 man, Mel Hunnewell, 
and myself made up half the attendance at the old Walpole 
Street grounds. Many weary years did we go rewardless, but, 
believe me, we had "ours" in 1914 when the Braves copped. 
The 1899 man was a good sport and of course you know 
"Hunny. " And if Bill James' arm had been right in 1915 — 
oh, well — the Red Sox were fair, very fair. Watch this year, 
though. In closing I wish to call particular attention to my 
membership in the National Geographic Society. This is a 
final indication of success in life ; for does it not show that one 
must have accumulated by thrift and industry the $2.50 neces- 
sary for the subscription to the magazine? Member: Harvard

for three years as a special student in architecture. From 
1904 to 1907, I continued work in architecture, both in Bos-

Occupation Artist and Advertiser. 

Address ' f 50 tfh Ave., New York, N. Y. 

To begin with, I did not want to go to college. — but I do 
not regret having gone as years go by, — and I did want to 
go to an art school ; but to the end the only thing that meant 
much to me was bitterly opposed and that may account for 
much or little. After leaving college, my health — never very 
good — began to fail and the two businesses I engaged in had 
no attractions for me and I. in consequence, the less for 
them. By February, 1904, illness drove me from New York 
to Cuba for the balance of the winter and, from then till the 
fall of 1908, I lived at Saugatuck, Conn., and till June, 1912, 
at Norwalk, Conn. At irregular intervals, and in most un- 
responsive surroundings. I did manage a bit of painting, but 
a severe nervous breakdown in 1907 put an end to what very 
little of value was being accomplished. By February, 1912, 
things having gone from bad to worse, and being then alone 
in this world. Dr. G. M. Phelps, '02, took me in hand and 
to some purpose, and, accompanied by a young M.D. I re- 
moved to Old Lyme. Conn. In February of the following 
year my fourth resident M.D. accompanied me on a trip 
that included Algiers, Naples, Patras, Trieste. Venice, a long 
stay with friends at Cannes, Paris, Cowes. London and Liv- 
erpool. I returned to Old Lyme in very much better health, 
got in a fair summer cruising, and April, 1914, found me

temporarily settled at New Rochelle, N. Y., once more amid 
congenial surroundings. Since then I have steadily picked 
up, got in two good summers racing and am in a fair way 
to as complete a recovery as can be expected ; but I should 
not spend the winters north. The art work is still in abey- 
ance after a lapse of over eight years, and whether its loose 
ends will ever be revived is a question that only the future 
can answer. In 1913, I became interested in the Atlas Ad- 
vertising Agency, Inc., of New York City, largely composed 
of Harvard men, of which I am an officer and director, but 
my actual connection with its activities has of necessity been 
very slight.

I was admitted to the bar in Pittsburgh, Pa., in September, 
1903, and began practice with the firm of Way, Walker and 
Morris, with whom I remained till November, 1904, when 
I came to Cleveland. Cleveland had been my home before 
entering Harvard, and I began in Pittsburgh only because 
my parents had removed there prior to my graduation. 
Pittsburgh grew less and less attractive to me as time went 
on, till its atmosphere, manners, and methods became so irk- 
some and distasteful to me that my health was injuriously 
affected. I determined to return to congenial Ohio, and was 
admitted to the bar here in December, 1904. I then formed 
a partnership with Alfred A. Benesch, Harvard, '00, Law 
School, '03, with whom I had roomed for two years while 
in the Law School. This partnership endured for six years, 
when I became assistant county prosecuting attorney. The 
"uplift movement" which proved disastrous to most Re- 
publicans in the campaign of 1912, left us high and dry, and

returning to private practice, I became associated with P. J. 
Brady, one of the best-loved and most highly esteemed mem- 
ber of the Cuyahoga County bar. This association, which 
pi .ed very pleasant, was short lived, for Mr. Brady unfor- 
tunately died in November, 1913, after an operation. I then 
formed a partnership with Robert D. Morgan, which still ex- 
ists under the name Kornhauser and Morgan. During the 
year 1910, I served occasionally as acting police judge, by 
appointment. In 1912, I was chosen permanent chairman of 
the Cuyahoga County Republican convention. The session 
proved to be the most turbulent in the county's history, the 
Roosevelt forces attempting to gain control of the conven- 
tion; but we frustrated their efforts. I was a delegate to 
the state Republican convention in the same year. I was 
president of the Western Reserve Club, 1911-1912; member 
of the Taft committee of one hundred, 1912. I have, for 
several years, been a member of the board of governors of 
the Educational League, a national organization for the high- 
er education of orphans, and of the board of the Home Find- 
ing and Child Placing Bureau of this city. I served as presi- 
dent of Cleveland Lodge, Independent Order of B'nai B'rith, 
1907-1908, and again 1911-1912. I am now president of Dis- 
trict No. 2, I. 0. B. B., which comprises Ohio, Indiana, Ken- 
tucky, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, New Mexico, aud Wy-

Address St. Inigoes Mission, St. Mary's County, Md. 

After graduating I studied for four years at the Universi- 
ty of Innsbruck, Austria, at the end of which time I was or- 
dained to the Catholic priesthood by the bishop of Brixen, 
Austria. Returning to this country the same year, I entered 
the Jesuit novitiate (New York, Maryland Province), at 
Poughkeepsie, N. Y., where I spent two years. After a 
year's teaching of Greek and Latin in Buffalo and Balti- 
more, I took a two years' special course in philosophy at 
Woodstock, Md., the Jesuit House of Higher Studies. Leav- 
ing there in the autumn of 1910, I spent nearly a year in 
chaplain work in the various institutions on Blackwell's 
Island, New York Harbor. I look back to this year with all 
its strenuousness, as a year of remarkable and valuable ex- 
perience, and despite the sombre surroundings, as a lesson 
in hopefulness. Being then nervously considerably below 
par. and unfitted for desk or class-room work, I welcomed, 
in the fall of 1911, my transfer to the open air life of a mis- 

263 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

sionary in St. Mary's County, Maryland, — the old English 
Jesuit mission, founded at the time of the first settlement of 
Maryland. My life here, since 1911, has gradually built me 
up physically, and given me as well an insight into the life 
of one of the most interesting and little-known sections of 
tlif United States: a country utterly unchanged by immi- 
gration, of delightful climate and natural charm, and in- 
habited exclusively — as to whites — by good, old-fashioned 
people, who have changed little since they first landed from 
England, over 270 years ago. A good deal of my work has 
been also with the colored people of Southern Maryland, 
who are of a distinctly higher class than are usually found 
elsewhere; peaceable, docile, and easily developed. Being a 
Jesuit, and leading, therefore, somewhat of a soldier's life, 
I do not care to prophesy. Whether I continue to develop 
my work here, or whether the desk or the school-room call 
me back, I find that the experience of the past will be an 
ever more penetrating key to unlocking the opportunity of 
the future. The sum and substance of a priest's work is al- 
ways the same : to unite men to each other by uniting them 
to God. I have written various articles in the Jesuit week- 
ly, America (appearing between 1910 and 1915), the article 
Hierarchy (translated for the Catholic Encyclopedia). Mem- 
ber : Society of Jesus.

While at Harvard I specialized in chemistry and allied 
subjects. After leaving, on account of serious railroad ac- 
cident, I went to South America and engaged in mining in 
various branches, including nitrates, gold, silver, emeralds, 
and prospected for these and for petroleum. This work 
•covered Colombia, Venezuela, and northern Brazil, the head- 
waters of the Orinoco-Meta system, etc. Was one of a party 
■of three which rediscovered the famous lost emerald mines 
of Somondoco in Colombia. Presented rare crystallographic 
emerald forms found there to Museum of Mineralogy, Co- 
lumbia University, New York City. In 1905 I returned to 
New York City, worked along metallurgical lines and also 
attended Columbia University School of Mines, graduating 
in 1909 with the degree of Engineer of Mines. In 1910 re- 
ceived degree of Master of Arts in geology and completed 
all residence requirements for degree of Doctor of Philosophy- 
Geology as a major. Since 1910 have been engaged in pe- 
troleum geology and engineering in California. 1910-12, 
resident geologist in Sunset-Midway oilfield for the Kern 
Trading and Oil Company (subsidiary of the Southern Pa- 
cific Railroad) ; 1912-15, chief geologist Kern County Oil 
Protective Association, and in charge of all operations for 
1913-1915, with headquarters at Taft, Cal. The association 
was a cooperative movement on the part of 80 per cent, of the 
oil producers of California to overcome water infiltration — a 
conservation measure. It secured the enactment of the pres-

supervisor for California, under department of petroleum and 
gas of the California State Mining Bureau. Have been in 
charge at various times of the work of the bureau in the 
following oilfields in California : Midway, Sunset, Mc- 
Kittrick, Kern River, Simi Valley, Santa Maria, Lompoc- 
Purissima. In 1912, in response to a request of the depart- 
ment of mines and metallurgy of the Panama-Pacific Inter- 
national Exposition (San Francisco. 1915,) for suggestions 
for a petroleum exhibit, the writer suggested a large "peg 
model" of the famous Sunset-Midway oilfield with the idea 
of fostering the introduction of this excellent method of rep- 
resenting underground structure and conditions in oilfields. 
This was approved and the model was designed and its con- 
struction supervised by me. This exhibit was awarded the 
only Grand Prize for California mining exhibits and was 
described by the jury of awards as "a model of great techni- 
cal, educational and industrial value." A gold medal was 
awarded the writer as a collaborator in the exhibit. I have 
written an article dealing with the exclusion of water from 
oil-producing strata in the oilfields of California (Western 
Engineering Magazine, November, 1914). Member: American

years, sat and waited, as is the tradition of the profession. 
Came a day of high resolve, when I tossed the book into the 
corner, untangled my limbs and lowered my heels to earth. 
Results followed, — nothing startling or monumental, but re- 
sults nevertheless. A brief catalogue of these would in- 
clude: the organization of a national bank; the rousing of 
a small town from an age-long lethargy and the transforma- 
tion of the same into a sprightly model borough; the organ- 
ization of a foundry company and the invention of what is 
now a staple article of commerce for manufacture thereby; 
and considerable political agitation of the hectic progres- 
sive variety. My political ambitions have uniformly failed 
of realization. I am. however, today an attache of the 
auditor general's department of Pennsylvania, serving in 
the capacity of law clerk in the corporation bureau. Lack- 
ing ubiquity, I have taken in a law partner, the name of the 
firm being Lehman and Belney. Work presses me from all 
sides. I am in it up to my neck, but enjoying it thoroughly.

shameful repetition of the personal pronoun. Member:

On graduating with 1901, I harbored a minimum regard for 
money, a decent regard for my fellows, and a maximum 
regard for "number one." Now, in my thirty-ninth year, 
I cherish a maximum regard for money, a continued decent 
regard for my fellows, and a minimum regard for the first 
number. The difficulty of corralling money, a varied career 
amongst men, and the conscience of Mrs. Leighton have 
reduced me to this viewpoint. My first job out of college was 
substitute teacher in the Boston English High School. My 
first regular position, secured through the Harvard Appoint- 
ment Office, was instructor in English at Washington Uni- 
versity, St. Louis. A climacteric struggle for the doctorate 
degree occurred in my thirtieth year, while acting as teaching 
fellow at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Vir- 
ginia. From September, 1908, to June, 1910, I soared on 
a Parnassus as assistant professor of English literature and 
composition at Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio. Dur- 
ing 1910 to 1911, lured by prospect of big pay, I took a 
chance at Lehigh University, South Bethlehem, Pa., sub- 
stituting for a professor away on leave of absence On his 
prompt return, I found myself afloat. During 1911 to 1912, 
I managed to crawl under cover as instructor in English at 
the University of Maine, in Orono, near Bangor. About this 
time I awoke from celibate visions of world greatness by 
getting married, and became harnessed near my own and 
wife's people to work-a-day service as teacher of English

Since the date of the last report (June, 1911), I have 
continued practising law in Denver, Col. After three and 
one-half years of to me delightful association with Edward C. 
Stimson, Esq., I opened an office for myself in the Equitable 
Building, Denver, March 15, 1913. Since then I have sailed 
under by own flag. Although the work of a lawyer in general 
practice ranging from railroad receiverships to drawing wills, 
from bankruptcies to quieting titles, from estates of deced- 
ents to acting as special counsel for two railways in the de- 
fence against a host of actions for damages, is interesting 
and important to the practitioner himself, frequently to 
his clients, and, at times, even to his adversaries, it affords 
rather dull material for a class report. To me, however, it 
has all seemed so much worth while and has proved so 
engrossing that, during the last five years I have found time 
for no such incidental pleasures as travelling abroad or 
getting married. Member : University Club, Denver, Col.,

Left college at close of term of 1898 to go into banking 
business. Have been in it ever since. Had bad luck with 
houses I worked for as some of their securities went wrong. 
I finally decided to take nobody else's word on securities, so 
went into business for myself in 1912, handling nothing but 
government, state and municipal bonds, working on the 
principle that it's "better to be safe than sorry." Have had 
excellent success. I am also something of a farmer, being 
the proprietor of Wee Laddie Farm at Charlton, Mass., where 
I have 4200 apple trees and about 200 acres of land. Mem-

Immediately after graduation, I started on a trip to Europe 
and there joined a congenial group of fellows. A trip of four 
or five months was planned, but unfortunately my letter 
of credit would not stand the racket, and the trip was short- 
ened to about eight weeks. Early in October of 1901 I 
entered the employ of the Walworth Manufacturing Com- 
pany as foundry clerk and spent a couple of hard years learn- 
ing the manufacturing end of the business. Later I was 
transferred to the retail sales department. After an ex- 
perience of about three years in this service, the wholesale 
sales department, and more particularly that division deal- 
ing with high-pressure power-plant valves and piping, claimed 
my attention. This work I found to be very interesting and 
it took up much of my time. In 1908 I was elected a director 
of the company and in 1913 vice-president. I have given 
much thought and time to the study of general cost and ac- 
counting practice, selling and advertising schemes and co- 
operative competition, which is to me a very interesting sub- 
ject. I am director of the Malleable Iron Fittings Company 
of Branford, Conn, having been elected in 1910. My travels 
have not been extensive, consisting mostly in business trips to 
New York and Chicago. However, in 1909 I made a short 
trip abroad and in 1913 enjoyed a couple ofi weeks in 
Bermuda. Member : The Country Club of Brookline, Cohasset

In the summer of 1901, I entered the educational depart-

of Malinao, Province of Capiz, Panay Island. During the 
spring months of 1902, I spent a very enjoyable vacation in 
Japan and China. Before reaching my station again it was 
necessary for me to put in a couple of months cruising 
through the Philippine Archipelago, owing to delays and de- 
tours because of the prevalence of Asiatic cholera in the 
islands. In October, 1902, I was transferred from Malinao 
to Calivo in the same province and island as Malinao. The 
approach of cholera to our island caused a complete sus- 
pension of school-work, one third of the inhabitants suc- 
cumbing to the dread disease. In January, 1903. I left 
Manila for Boston, but did not arrive home until April, 1904, 
spending the year and a half in travelling the greater part 
of Asia and Europe. Upon returning to Boston I com- 
menced my immediate studies for the priesthood. With this 
object in view, I spent the scholastic year 1904-1905 at the 
Catholic University of America, at Washington, D. C, in the 
study of philosophy. While travelling in Europe in the sum- 
mer of 1905, I decided to make my course of theology there, 
and entered the University of Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria, 
that fall. John La Farge of our class had finished his 
course therein the previous spring. After three years, I 
w T as ordained in July, 1908. I remained the following year 
to complete my studies. After returning to Boston in 1909, 
I was stationed at St. Joseph's Church, Medford, Mass., for 
three years. Since 1912 I have been assistant at St. Ed-

Biographical Sketches 

After graduating from Harvard with an engineering de- 
gree in 1901 I went directly with Stone and Webster and 
gained some experience in every department of the Boston 
office work. In 1902 I went to Houghton, Mich., as electrical 
engineer, subsequently becoming superintendent of Houghton 
County Electric Light Company about 1903. In 1905 I was 
made manager of Houghton County Traction Company and 
Houghton County Electric Light Company, both Stone and 
Webster properties. In this position I served for several 
years until 1909 when I was transferred to Minneapolis as 
assistant to Mr. A. W. Leonard, at that time vice-president 
and manager of the Minneapolis General Electric Company. 
During some of the trying times of this company and until 
1912 when Stone and Webster sold the company, then very 
successful, I held the position of assistant general manager. 
In June, 1912, I returned to the Boston office of Stone and: 
Webster and took up expert work for the firm in connection 
with the examination, analysis, and organization of new prop- 
erties and for other interests, bankers, etc. In November, 
1913, I went to Seattle as assistant to vice-president of Puget 
Sound Traction, Light and Power Company, which position I 
held until Mr. Leonard's election to the office of president, 
when I was appointed manager of the company, and in De- 
cember, 1914, was made vice-president in charge of all opera- 
tions on Puget Sound. Member : Rainier Club, Seattle, Wash.,

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

In the autumn of 1901 I entered the employ of Abram 
French and Company (now dissolved). Summer Street, Bos- 
ton. I left about February 20, 1902, and entrained for West 
Milton, Ohio, where I entered the employ of the D. C. and P. 
Traction Company, a 35-mile trolley line then under con- 
struction. I started as track inspector, went through 
various positions, foreman, etc., to grade of paymaster until 
the road was finished and put in operation. I left there 
about October 1, 1902, in company with one A. S. Swank 
(my present partner) on a general "hoboing" trip. I 
wound up alone and broke in Louisville, Ky. I finally found 
temporary relief as "cub" clerk on a river boat running to 
Evansville, Ind., at wages, nil. I took typhoid fever, sent 
home for money and crawled home to die about January 15, 
1903. I got well and worked for Stone and Webster Com- 
pany on construction of trolley from Mattapan to Blue 
Hills, Mass. On completion of the same, I became general 
factotum with T. H. Gill Contracting Company, on boule- 
vard construction between Milton and Readville, then with 
Frank B. Gilbreth Company, Boston, and next with Coleman 
Brothers, on construction of Nahant boulevard. It was at 
this time that it slowly dawned on me that, if the last three- 
named firms, however well-reputed, could get by on their 
intelligence, there was some chance for me. So, with assets 
of $7.00, I landed a $25,00 contract for sewer and launched 
forth as a captain of industry, about August, 1905. I had 
some success and kept expanding till 1907, when I went 
"broke" first time in New Hampshire, in the panic of that 
year. I got into New Hampshire and drifted into construc- 
tion of state roads. I stayed in the state four years in 
which time I dabbled in automobile business on the side, 
owning and operating a garage at Suncook. The boom 
in New Hampshire went off with the advent of the bull- 
moose governor (Bass). I sold the garage, went into New 
York state, and formed a partnership with old friend 
Swank. We enlarged, went after business and got it. The 
]\ T ew York grafters also went after us and "got" us to the 
tune of $28,000. We stayed four years in New York state and

are now in Ohio for our third year. We are about on our feet 
again in good shape. I have a six-mile road on here at New 
Lexington, with a brick laid on concrete base. The road 
goes through forest and swamp, and is inaccessible to team- 
haul. I have built a standard-gauge railroad and own and 
operate a 50-ton locomotive, which takes railroad cars out 
on work. It is the first time on record that a standard- 
gauge road has been attempted for temporary purposes, and 
I have been written up in all the construction magazines in 
the country. I am located in the heart of the coal, gas. and oil 
district, and am dabbling a bit in oil wells. If any of you

Hlbert THeminwag ZlDicbelson 

Albert Heminway Michelson, Worcester Academy '97, 
American Consul at Cologne, died at his post and in the line 
of duty on the 9th day of June, 1915. He had been desig- 
nated by Ambassador Gerard, on behalf of the English gov- 
ernment, to inspect German prisons where Englishmen were 
confined, and had just finished his arduous and exhausting 
round of visits and completed his report when he was strick- 
en with pneumonia and died within four days. He was the 
son of Albert A. Michelson, the eminent physicist, and Mar- 
garet Heminway Michelson, and was born at Annapolis, Md., 
in 1877. His father at that time was a young ensign in the 
navy, acting as assistant in the physical laboratory. He pre- 
pared for college at the "Worcester Academy, entered Harvard 
with the class of 1901, and was graduated in due course. Dur- 

298 



Biographical Sketches 

ing his junior year, he became interested in the consular and 
diplomatic service as a possible career. At that time, the 
changes in the methods of consular appointment, first ad- 
vocated by President Cleveland, had begun to free the ser- 
vice from its political aspects, and Michelson was one of a 
number of youths of promise to whom the service of their 
government in foreign lands seemed a useful and attractive 
career. At the beginning of his senior year, he was ap- 
pointed United States consular agent at Charleroi, Belgium, 
with leave of absence until graduation. Charleroi is a man- 
ufacturing city, the centre of the glass industry, gloomy as 
a place of residence, but the headquarters of European so- 
cialism. Michelson 's keen intellectual enthusiasms and his 
very human sympathies soon brought him into contact with 
that small group of brilliant men who at that time directed 
the socialistic propaganda in Belgium, and in fact in all 
Europe. He became to an unusual degree the friend and 
confidant of these men. This relationship influenced consid- 
erably his attitude toward life, and, until his death, he was 
ever interested in reform movements. For six years he re- 
mained in Charleroi, for advancement in the consular ser- 
vice at that time was slow. In 1907 he received his promo- 
tion and appointment as full consul at Turin, Italy. Here 
he found life peculiarly congenial. The consular office was 
a busy one, and the opportunities for encouraging American 
trade abundant. In a remarkably short time he mastered 
the language and became a much respected and well-known 
figure in the life of the city. In 1911 he was appointed with 
the Hon. Francis B. Loomis, American commissioner to the 
International Exposition at Turin. In his report to the state 
department. Mr. Loomis, who was commissioner general, re- 
fers to Michelson as "one of the experienced practical ex- 
perts on foreign trade in the government service and one of 
our most efficient and accomplished consuls". His work in 
connection with the Exposition was so efficient, that he was, 
in the following year, appointed by the president sole 
American delegate to the International Conference on Expo- 
sitions, held at the invitation of the German government, at 

299 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

Berlin. He was next appointed consul at Hanover, Ger- 
many, but this appointment was understood to be tempor- 
ary and, just before the close of his administration, Presi- 
dent Taft awarded to Michelson the much-desired appoint- 
ment at Milan. The Democratic senate refused to confirm 
this appointment with many others made by President Taft 
and, under the direction of Mr. Bryan, the post went to an- 
other. During the early months of the war, he was at Hano- 
ver and early in 1915 received his promotion to the impor- 
tant post at Cologne. Sir Edward Grey has sent to Albert's 
family copies of his prison reports. They have been pub- 
lished by the English government and form part of "White 
Book No. 11". As his executor, I have before me many of 
his official reports to the department of state and the 
answers thereto. Commendation and praise was the re- 
peated attitude of the department of state. There is possi- 
bly one amusing exception. While at Charleroi, Albert un- 
doubtedly suffered at times from a rather persistent home- 
sickness. One day there burst upon the smoke and gloom 
of that dingy city Buffalo Bill's Wild West show in all its 
glory. Such a breath from home must have been a great re- 
fresher to Albert. At any rate, it seems that the manager of 
the show induced him to review the usual preliminary pro- 
cession in a more or less public and official manner. I am in- 
clined to think that the department in a tactful way, appre- 
ciating the significance of this boyish escapade, intimated 
that it was not the duty of consuls officially to review pass- 
ing shows, American or otherwise, from the balcony of the 
consulate. Albert would never admit to me the receipt of 
any such reminder, always maintaining that he was simply 
doing his duty in fostering American trade. Michelson was 
trusted and respected by men of affairs in the cities where 
he represented our government, Capable of strong and last- 
ing friendships and chivalrous toward women, his personal- 
ity was graced by discriminating sentiment and an ever-per- 
sistent idealism.

Barnes TRumrill flDUler 

James Rumrill Miller was born in New York City, March 13,, 
1880. His parents were Charles Philip Miller and Grace Rum- 
rill. Early in life he removed to Springfield, Mass., where he 
fitted for college at the Springfield High School. He went 
the full course at Harvard and on graduation received the 

301 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

degree of A.B. cum laude. While in college he was a mem- 
ber of D. K. E., Hasty Pudding Club, Institute of 1770, Owl 
Club (Phi Delta Psi), Signet and Springfield Club. After 
graduation from Harvard, he was a clerk for two years in the 
New York Security and Trust Company. From 1903 to 1907 
he was a bond salesman representing (in Western Massachu- 
setts) Messrs. Jackson and Curtis, of Boston. He then be- 
came vice-president of the Chapin National Bank of Spring- 
field and in 1912 was elected its president, which office he held 
until his death. He married Marjorie Helen Coats, Spring- 
field, Mass., Oct. 9, 1907 and had one son, James R. Miller, Jr., 
born April 10, 1909. In the fall of 1915 he suffered a severe 
breakdown which he endured with great courage. Two years 
previously, through a bad fall, he suffered severely from con- 
cussion, from which it was thought he never fully recovered. 
He died at the Butler Hospital in Providence, May 10, 1916. 
In business Miller was an able banker of considerable promise. 
He entered the Chapin National Bank young in experience as 
its active executive and soon earned the confidence of the com- 
munity by conscientious work and sound judgment in the 
successful development of the business of the bank. As a man, 
Miller possessed a strong character, a bright mind and sunny 
heart. While his death has deprived his wide acquaintance of 
much they have much to cherish from his true friendship and 
fine nature.

From 1901 to 1902. I attended the Harvard Graduate

tended the Harvard Law School. From 1902 until 1904, I 
attended the Harvard Law School and taught economics in 
Harvard College, and during part of this period was an 
editor of the Harvard Law Review. About this time, I pub- 
lished two books: "The Rise and Progress of the Standard 
Oil Company" (Harpers, 1903) and "Trusts of Today" (Mc- 
Clure, Phillips and Company, 1904). After graduating from 
the Harvard Law School in 1904, I entered the law office of 
Simpson, Thatcher and Bartlett, New York City, and was ad- 
mitted to practise in New York in November, 1904. From 
1906 to 1908, I was legal secretary to Mr. Justice Blanchard of 
the New York Supreme Court. From 1908 to 1910, I was 
associated with the law firm of Rollins and Rollins, New York 
City. Since May, 1910, I have been in independent practice

litigations and as special commissioner to determine awards 
for substantial amounts of improved property in lower Man- 
hattan taken by condemnation in the construction of the sub- 
way extension and the harbor improvement. Though a general 
practitioner, I have been devoting an increasing proportion of 
my working time, during the past few years, to counsel work 
in matters relating to state and federal anti-trust laws, ad- 
vising in these matters a variety of business interests, and 
dealing in this connection with officials of the Department of 
Justice and the Federal Trade Commission and some of the

It takes a better story than mine in the Third Report to

of myself "since graduation, bringing it down to date", but 
instead make the report of 1911 a part of this by reference and 
continue from that date. I don't like to be reminded of 
Copey's "pretty good egg". So you may take me where you 
left me in the Harvard Law School with two up and one to 
play. I holed out the next year, — June, 1912, and have been in 
the hole ever since. The lure of the wild was in my blood, — 
that "old spring fret" that Kipling tells about; something bit 
me, anyway, and I came to the Puget Sound country (with the 
accent on the Pu). I was a stranger, and they did the rest. 
I 'm still here. After investigating the sage brush, wheat fields, 
and orchards of the Columbia Valley I arrived in Tacoma, just 
in time to assist in the annual Harvard-Yale meet at the Coun-

try Club. I finished the evening by filling an inside straight, 
taking the pot, and going back to town with the conviction 
that I liked Tacoma. So I bought a straight-brimmed Stetson 
hat, and a cut of "star", commenced to say calf with the "a" 
as in hat and add an "er" to the name of the city, and settled 
down to acquire a law practice. That was nearly four years 
ago and I have been acquiring ever since. The details of the 
story would be neither interesting nor fit to print, for the way 
we do the acquiring in this country is to bluff the other fellow 
all the time we aren't bluffing ourselves; in short, it is the 
land of the bush league and the BS. Everyone is active, at 
any rate. And they have a way of allowing one to get into 
things. I am secretary-treasurer of the Harvard Club of 
Tacoma; secretary-treasurer of the Washington Game Asso- 
ciation; president of the Tacoma Bait and Fly Casting Club. 
I have but one regret, and thnt is that I shall be unable to be 
with the other members of the "Only One" this June. But T . 
here 's how !

(business) U. S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Md. 

After being puffed by Professor Harms for a thousand dol- 
lar superintendency in an Iowa town, I condescended to take 
a one-man job of teaching a country high school at Hub- 
bardston, Mass. The next year I went to the Attleboro (Mass.) 
High School, and added athletics as a side line. After a year, 
I succumbed to the temptation of becoming a real "prof." 
and found myself the head (and tail) of the English depart- 
ment in a small college at Bridgewater, Va. After two years 
there as this and coach and end on the football team, I tried 
to capitalize my new athletic reputation, and went to Wenonah 
(N. J.) Military Academy as instructor in English and ath- 
letics. For two years I wore a khaki uniform and grabbed a 
few dollars from "The American Boy" for my articles on 
' ' How to Play Baseball ' ' ; then I took a shot at an instructor- 
ship in English at the United States Naval Academy at An- 
napolis, and have ever since been sticking to my luck, teach- 
ing Hill's Rhetoric, naval history, Shakspere, constitutional 
law, and general culture to the future Farraguts of the navy. 
In spite of my purely New England origin and predilec- 
tions, I have become very much of a Marylander, and seem to 
have settled down on the banks of the Severn. But I have to 
take a month off every summer and breathe a few whiffs of 
Northern air and view the latest changes in the Yard. I have 
done some graduate work at Johns Hopkins, but even Chaucer 
loses something when not imbibed from the Kittredgean 
fount. I am a member of the leading Harvard club, the 
Annapolis Harvard Club, first alphabetically, of eight mem- 
bers. Since coming to Annapolis I have become interested 
in Parson Weems and his Cherry Tree story, and have even 
been able to get Professor A. B. Hart to palm off my theory 
of its origin on an unsuspecting public. I have contributed 
several articles on this to the magazines and newspapers, and 
have also written to some extent on naval education. I have

gree in classical philology at Munich in January, 1908, re- 
turning to an instructorship in Northwestern. The next year 
I was assistant professor of Latin and secretary of the Uni-

Since leaving college, in 1899, I have followed a strictly-

the following concerns : American Woolen Company, Boston,

D 'Olier and Company, Philadelphia, Pa. ; Kilburn Mill, New 
Bedford, Mass. ; and for the past seven years with Catlin 
and Company. New York City, as New York representative 
for cotton yarns. I started with no definite branch in mind, 
but have consistently followed the textile manufacture in 
both the manufacturing and selling ends. I have, however, 
found the latter more congenial and lucrative. I believe 
strongly that a college training is a distinct asset in business 
after the first years, — in my case, as I see it, in the habit of 
looking at problems in the broad aspect and the ability as 
far as I have it to get the various viewpoints in a matter be- 
fore a decision. My principal pleasures have been the culti- 
vation of as catholic a taste as possible in music and read- 
ing. Much of this would have been impossible without the 
impetus of my college courses, and this I believe to be the 
great benefit I received from Harvard. Member: Harvard

Biographical Sketches 

After learning how to think at the Harvard Law School, I 
spent three years in the office of Gaston, Snow and Salton- 
stall. The training received there was invaluable. In the 
summer of 1907, I went abroad on the now famous "Peace 
Ship," Oscar II. While in Stockholm, I married Elsa Marie 
Langborg, a native of Sweden, and we returned upon the 
same illustrious ship. Shortly afterwards I opened my own 
office and waited for clients. A few years later I became a 
member of my present firm, Stimson, Stockton, Livermore 
and Palmer, and engaged in general practice, with corporation 
work as a specialty. When first married I lived in West 
Newton where I learned that "gentleman farming" as a side 
issue is amusing, but not remunerative. My house there is 
still for sale. Historic Concord, where I now reside, is ideal 
for raising children and sleeping. Aside from frequent auto- 
mobile tours and daily trips on the suburban train, I have 
done little travelling of recent years. For a number of years 
I have been a director in, the secretary of, the Infants 
Hospital. This charity was for years under the direction of 
the late Dr. Thomas Morgan Rotch, the father of our class- 
mate Tom. Recently a beautiful marble building near the 
Medical School has been erected as a memorial to Tom for 
the use of the Infants Hospital. This is of particular interest 
to the class of 1901, not only because it is a memorial to one 
of its members, but because many classmates have contributed 
towards its erection and furnishing. Member: Harvard Club

Society Islands (South Seas). After a visit there I landed 
at San Francisco and went to Nevada. I stayed in and 
around Tonopah for a year or so doing various and sundry 
things, including the Tonopah Sun. From Tonopah I re- 
turned to California to be night editor of the Morning Press 
of Santa Barbara. After a year and a half of this I came 
back to Boston and went into the advertising business, first 
with the Cowan Agency and then for two years in Worcester 
as advertising manager for J. Edmund Thompson. For 
awhile I was advertising manager of Gray and Davis, Boston, 
and then went to the Willett, Sears people (Boston) as ad- 
vertising manager of the American Felt Company; later for 
all their companies ("Comfy" slippers, etc.). In the fall 
of 1915 I removed to New York to the advertising depart-

Since graduation my principal effort has been to build up for 
myself a business that would give me the opportunity to in- 
dulge a very lively interest in school children in general, and 
boys' clubs in particular. It was partly because of this in- 
terest that I found my wife, who has had almost the whole 
supervision over one boys' club, and has shared in the direc- 
tion of the affairs of another club, which has visited points of 
interest in the Boston Basin, from the Navy Yard to the 
Agassiz Museum. Incidental to the work with boys it fell to 
my lot to become a member of the local playground commis- 
sion, on which I served as secretary for three years. However, 
the most important work now before me is the bringing up of 
our little daughter of two years, before whose advent into our 
lives, neither my wife nor I knew what real happiness meant.

Paris. From April, 1909, to July, 1912, I was managing di-

Milan. During the three years we organized the Italian 
business and built a factory at Brescia for the manufacture 
of radiators and boilers, the company being owned by the 
American Radiator Company. The next three years after 
July, 1912, I was in America half of the time and was secre- 
tary of the United States Silica Company, of Chicago. I 
made an interesting trip to Panama in 1913 and one or two 
to Europe. I sailed a few days before the "Lusitania" last 
May, and landed at Bordeaux the day after she sank. Last 
September I sailed for England and have been in Petrograd 
since October, as special representative of the John Deere 
Company, of New York. I am uncertain how long my stay 
will be, but of course I hope to reach Cambridge by next June.

On graduating from Harvard Law School I became legis- 
lative agent of the New York Anti-Saloon League, which 
position I held until June, 1908 ; during this time I was for 
two years secretary of the Committee of Fourteen, which 
conducted the campaign against Raines law hotels in New 
York City. I was admitted to the New York bar in 1906. 
In the fall of 1908 I attended the Graduate School of Co- 
lumbia University and in January, 1909, became instructor 
in political science at the University of California. In July 
of the same year I was advanced to the grade of assistant 
professor. In January. 1911, I became executive secretary 
to Governor Johnson of California, resigning in August, 
1911, to return to the University as associate professor of 
government, which position I still hold. I have been ac- 
tive in politics, especially municipal politics. I was for a 
year and a half president of the City Club of Berkeley. I 
have been more and more exclusively devoting my time to 
municipal government and municipal corporation law. I am 
a member of the California bar and have done a considera- 
ble amount of advisory work for municipalities in this 
state. Among the more important tasks which I have un- 
dertaken was the drafting of the charter of the city of San 
Jose. This charter will go into effect July 1, 1916. I have

in college for another year, in order to secure an A.M. 
During this academic year, I coached the. university eleven 
in the fall of 1901 and the baseball team in the spring of 
1902. On July 2, 1902, I was married to Christine Williams 
Lincoln and left almost immediately afterward for a six 
months' trip to Europe. Returning in December, 1902, I 
went West to Belmont, Cal., where I became assistant head- 
master, under my father, of the Belmont School for boys, a 
private boarding school, located twenty-five miles south of 
San Francisco. I remained there until the spring of 1905, 
when, not being certain that I should continue in school 
work, I came East for two years to coach the university 
eleven. At the end of those two years, I returned West to 
the school and remained there until Christmas of 1910, when 
I again came East and took a position as bond salesman with 
William A. Read and Company, which position I am still 
holding. My home is in Brookline, while my business takes 
me to Boston, Worcester and Hartford. With my wife and 
a family of four children, two boys and two girls, I have

Since August, 1904, I have been engaged in the practice 
of law at Boston. While mine has been a general civil prac- 
tice, I have had most to do with corporate affairs, probate 
matters and the investment and care of funds of individual 
clients and estates. On the whole my work has been that of 
a counsellor rather than of an advocate. It has been for 
the most part of private, not of public, interest. Of those 
events in my practice that have, possibly, some interest for 
the public, there are three. In 1911 I secured from the 
Board of Control of the City of Chelsea, then under the 
commission form of government, and from the Railroad 
Commissioners of Massachusetts, a franchise for a standard 
gauge, marginal, freight railroad along water front prop- 
erties on Chelsea River in Boston Harbor, and in 1912 
supervised the construction of that railroad. At about the 
same time I started and afterward directed a movement which 
resulted in the City of Boston building, in 1912-1913, a mod- 
ern, steel drawbridge, with a fifty-nine-foot waterway. From 
the sixty-second Congress I secured an appropriation of eighty- 
five thousand dollars, and from the Legislature of Massa- 
chusetts for 1913 an appropriation of seventy-five thousand 
dollars, for the improvement of the navigability of Chelsea 
River by removing Metropolitan water mains therefrom and 
dredging therein a channel twenty-five feet deep at low tide, 
thus making the river navigable, at practically all stages of 
the tide, for all coastwise and most transoceanic steam- 
ships. Member: Boston Chamber of Commerce, Massachu-

work in Boston. Mass.. being employed by the Beston In- 
dustrial Company, which managed and operated many elec- 
tric utilities in eastern Massachusetts. "When some of these 
properties passed into the control of the Edison Electric Il- 
luminating Company, of Boston, I became associated with that 
company for a short period. About 1910, I went to Uxbridge, 
Mass.. to develop a group of properties which afterward be- 
came the Worcester Suburban Electric Company. During 
this period I resided at Uxbridge, Mass. Late in 1913. I be- 
came associated with W. S. Barstow and Company, Inc., of 
New York. During the period in which I have been with 
this concern, I have been active in various branches of public 
utility management, mostly in connection with the operation 
of the properties. As this class report leaves me, I am 
paying especial attention to corporation statistics and to 
analysis of operation of the many utilities which come un- 
der the direction of this concern. I have had but little time 
to be active in other fields, with a result that I have made 
but small contribution to the advancement of general 
knowledge. I have presented papers on special subjects be- 
fore small groups of men, among which the most ambitious 
effort was an appearance before the American Society of 
Mechanical Engineers in New York. I have held no public 
offices and only a few corporate ones, which were incident 
to the continuance of business conditions, such as director 
and treasurer or manager. When posible, during vacation 
periods. I have travelled about the eastern United States 
and England, but the public utility business is not liberal in 
vacation periods so that the various trips have been of a 
hurried nature. Member: Harvard Club of New York, Na-

William Rotch, Jr., was born at New Bedford, Mass., 
August 17th, 1876, the son of Mary Rotch Eliot and William 
Rotch. He was graduated from The Hale School, Boston, Mass., 
in 1896 and entered Harvard University Lawrence Scientific 
School in the fall of 1897, graduating in 1901 with the degree 
of S.B. Except for a short period in 1904, on account of 
ill health he undertook no regular business actively until 1906, 
when he entered the electrical engineering department of the 
New England Telephone and Telegraph Company. In 1908 
he resigned this position to take up a somewhat similar line 
of work with the Massachusetts Electric Companies, which he 
pursued until his death, which occurred after a short illness, 
on November 16th, 1915. In a class so large as ours it was 
possible for many a soul to spend his four years without know- 
ing or being known by a large number of classmates. Probab- 
ly many of the finest characters lived among us without re- 
ceiving the appreciation which was their due, and the loss was 
equally with those, who, from one cause or another, were cut 
off from such acquaintances. William Rotch was one of these, 
yet few of us could hope for or merit a finer tribute than the 
words below, which were written by an intimate friend about 
him. "He was always ready to do more than his share when

called upon, and offered his services whenever he felt he could 
be of use. Although he did not enjoy good health, he never 
complained, hut made the best of things. He had a good 
sense of humor and was a ' jack-of -all-trades' in his home, and 
efficient with his hands. He was absolutely dependable and 
thoughtful, was fond of music and boating. He was quiet and 
retiring but much appreciated by those who knew him. ' ' There 
is almost more eulogy between these lines than in the words 
themselves. It is difficult to read them without a sense of 
personal loss in the death of this classmate, whether one knew 
him little or not at all.

My life has been an ordinary bread-and-butter one — no 
frills or gingerbread. My father died at the end of my 
freshman year, and I was therefore compelled to leave col- 
lege. I subsequently entered the law school at the Universi- 
ty of Buffalo, working in the interim as a bookkeeper at a 
niggardly wage. I was under the age of 21 when I left the 
law school, and as soon as I became of age, I took the bar 
examination, and as soon as I passed the same and was 
sworn in as a lawyer. I hung out my shingle, and struck out, 
and since then have played the game single-handed, with 
but indifferent success. Politically I am a Progressive. 
Formerly I was a Republican, and while such ran for state 
senator and was badly beaten. Member: Harvard Club of

After leaving college I started the study of law at the

equivalent diploma from the University of the State of New 
York. An operation on my knee which prevented my walking 
up three long flights of stone stairs at the Columbia Library 
and the death of my father ended my career as a lawyer. I 
then worked for the Standard Tile Company of St. Louis, The 
Delaware Trust Company, The Guaranty Trust Company, of 
New York, during the organization of the Steel Trust and a 
non-refillable bottle company, in the order named. I then 
worked for some time with a patent medicine concern. Some 
of these jobs I didn't like and some didn't like me. I made 
some money at some and none at others. Next I beat it to 
Canada and worked with the Grand Trunk Railway in de-

supplies, and this will doubtless continue to be my principal 
business. My record includes no political honors. I was at

After graduation I learned the financial end of the 
cotton manufacturing business in the Providence office of 
the Baltic Mills Company, of which I am one of the 
owners. After my marriage in 1904 I removed to Norwich, 
Conn., and worked in the mill, learning the technical side 
of the business. While working in the mill I took the Inter- 
national Correspondence School course in cotton manufac- 
turing. The combination was very effective and worth 
while. As I was not needed absolutely in the 'cotton busi- 
ness and was much more interested in geology, it seemed 
best to take advantage of an offer from the geological de- 
partment of Harvard of taking charge of the new Geological 
Museum in 1906. In 1907 I removed to Brookline, then built 
a house at Chestnut Hill, and moved in during the fall of 
1908. In the summer of 1908 I made a geological trip to the 
Canadian Rockies and Vancouver Island. In the summer of 
1909 I did geology in the Marine glacial clays at Rockland, 
Me. In 1910 I visited Florida and spent the summer in the 
White Mountains. In 1911 I did some geology in Virginia.

In 1912 I travelled over California. In 1913 I visited Italy,

time is not all given to geology, part of it going to business 
affairs and some to the Children's Museum of Boston, of 
which I am secretary and one of the charter members. It is

After graduation I spent the usual four years in studying

ing autumn (1908) I was appointed assistant in clinical 
medicine at the Harvard Medical School and assistant 
physician to out-patients at the Massachusetts General Hos- 
pital. I continued teaching various clinical branches for the 
Medical School for five years and then resigned. I am still

For two years after graduation I was on the instruction 
staff of the university, holding a fellowship in engineering, 
1901-1902, and an instructorship in the Bussey Institution, 
1902-1903. During a short time in 1903, I was on the en- 
gineer corps of the Pennsylvania Railroad, at Altoona, Pa., 
where great extensions to this system were being provided 
in shops, yards and general equipment. In the latter part 
of 1903, I joined the engineering forces of the Boston sewer 
department and had considerable to do with the drainage 
in the vicinity of Stony Brook, in the Back Bay Fens, es- 
pecially as it related to the development of parks and 
the Charles River Basin. This covered a period of three 
years. The project for additional water supply for New 
York City was being developed in 1906, and. early in that 
year. I started on the preliminary surveys, being located in

Biographical Sketches 

the vicinity of Peekskill, N. Y. Later I had charge of the 
construction of the Catskill aqueduct in this vicinity and 
this gave much opportunity for enlargement in engineering 
as well as a great pleasure in knowing the beautiful high- 
lands of the Hudson, over which I walked or rode, always 
finding enjoyment in its infinite varieties of rugged scenery. 
I next was engaged in the Borough of Queens, New York 
City, studying and planning systems of drainage and more 
particularly the disposal of sewage into New York Harbor. 
This presented problems of broad scope and brought me in 
touch with current practice in the disposal of municipal 
waste. My present work is for the Municipal Civil Service 
Commission of New York City as engineering examiner. 
This work, including, as it does, the recruiting of engineers 
in the municipal service, has a special attraction on account 
of my previous experience in the public works of New York 
City. It offers large opportunities for improvement in or- 
ganizations and public service generally. I wrote an arti- 
cle : Mekeel Tunnel, Catskill Aqueduct (Harvard Engineer- 
ing Journal, November. 1914). Member: American Society

After three years in the Philadelphia Divinity School I was

and the Epiphany in the same city. Two years later, in 
1906, I was made vicar of Epiphany Chapel and served there 
for six years, accepting a call to become associate rector of 
Calvary Church, Summit, N. J. This was in the fall of 1912. 
I succeeded to the rectorship on January 1, 1914. For a year 
and a half as rector of this parish I had a most delightful 
experience, in a community that exactly fulfils the dream of 
seminary days. There came to me, however, in the midst 
of these happy conditions, a request to undertake the posi- 
tion of head-master of the Episcopal Academy in Phila- 
delphia. An unusual combination of circumstances and the 
advice of those whose wisdom I valued formed a challenge I 
could not resist and I have been trying since last fall to work 
out into this larger field and to meet in some measure the 
many opportunities it affords. I have bad numerous invita-

ERICH CRAMER STERN 

Born Milwaukee, Wis., Feb. 8, 1879. 

Parents Carl G. Stern, Alma M. Cramer. 

School East Side High School, Milwaukee, Wis. 

Years in College 1897-1901. 

Degrees A.B.. 1901; LL.B., 190.',. 

Occupation Lawyer. 

Address (home) 1^9 Farwell Ave., Milwaukee, Wis. 

(business) 1332 First National Bank Building; 
Milwaukee, Wis. 

The first three years after graduation were spent at the 
Harvard Law School, where I received the law degree in 
1904. Returning that summer to Milwaukee, I took and passed 
the Wisconsin bar examinations, but did not commence 
the practice of law until a year later. In the fall of 1904 
I went to Paris, where I spent seven months as a student at 
the Law School of the University of Paris, also attending 
numerous lectures at the Sorbonne, College de France, etc. 
I lived and associated exclusively with Parisians during this 
period, and it was my great privilege to enter intimately in- 
to their family life. From Paris I went via Brussels and the 
Rhine to Berlin, where I spent the summer semester of 1905 
in study at the university. At both universities I specialized 
in what we call the "conflict of laws". When the university 
closed, I travelled first in Norway and then in Italy, and re- 
turned home in the fall. Since returning home near the 
close of 1905, I have been practising law in Milwaukee, for 
the first six years alone, and since then in partnership with 
Mr. Burdette F. Williams, under the firm name of Williams 
and Stern. More recently former Circuit Judge Orren T 
Williams has been associated with us as special counsel. 
Our firm are the local attorneys for the Fidelity and Deposit 
Company of Maryland, Casualtj 7 Company of America, 
Georgia Casualty Company and the Zurich General Accident

and Liability Insurance Company. Our practice, however, 
is of a genera] nature. Shortly after returning to Milwau- 
kee 1 was asked to run for alderman of my ward, and was 
elected in 1908. for a two-year term. My nomination under 
the primary law and my subsequent election were due, in 
large measure, to a personal house to house campaign, an ex- 
periment which at that time was perhaps rather novel. I did 
not know any of the politicians in my ward until after my 
election. My ward was very close politically, and I failed, 
by a close margin, of re-election to the council in the spring 
of 1910. Shortly thereafter, however, I was asked to run 
for the state assembly, and after a spirited campaign, was 
nominated on the Republican ticket, and subsequently 
elected for a two-year term. The Republican state platform 
convention in the fall of 1910 made me its secretary. I was 
elected as a so-called "Progressive Republican", and thus 
belonged to the party which completely dominated the state 
administration and legislature of 1911-1912. The 1911 ses- 
sion of the Wisconsin legislature was a very remarkable one, 
for the quality and importance of the legislation enacted. 
It Avas my privilege to have a full share in the shaping of 
this legislation. My principal committee appointment was 
that to the committee on cities, of which I was chairman. 
Although I have have taken no further part in politics since 
1912, I have continued to be active in various organizations 
of a semi-public character. Of these the university settle- 
ment has held m.y interest ever since I returned to the city. 
In addition to being a director and helping to organize a 
Men's Civic Club, I have at various times been in residence 
at the house. The so-called "Central Council of Social 
Agencies", a federation of all the philanthropic organiza- 
tions of the city, chose me as president several successive 
years. Recently I have transferred my activity more par- 
ticularly to the City Club, of which I am now the acting 
president. Henceforth more of my time will be devoted to 
guiding the work of the Milwaukee Citizens Bureau of Muni- 
cipal Efficiency, of which I have just been made president. 
For four years I have been giving courses in the law depart-

have thus far not missed a single reunion of the class of 
1901. I have written : The Organization and Administra-

After completing my course in the Rochester Theological

the latter place I have been mostly in and near Rochester, 
N. Y. A slight handicap in my health and a kink in my 
theological views has brought me more and more into out- 
door work. Three years I was chaplain at the State School, 
Industry, N. Y. During which time I was also part owner 
and manager of the Long Trail Camp for Boys, which took 
canoe trips in Ontario. At the time I was married I took 
up this farm, and, having acquired most of the knack of 
handling the tools and the animals, I am doing a large part 
of the work with my own hand labor. I am doing some 
preaching. It is likely, however, that some kind of clerical 
or professional work will entirely supersede the farming 
which has nearly served its beneficial purpose in my life.

assigned to Goa, Camanines, a province several hundred 
miles from Manila, and, after a rather adventurous journey, 
I reached my destination. I was a stranger in a strange land 
and among a strange people ; but, being rather inclined to 
things new and strange, I adapted myself to conditions. I 
taught three years, according to the contract, and a part of 
the fourth, when I decided to go into the hemp business, 
which was at that time prosperous. I continued in the busi- 
ness five or six years when it declined. About this time I 
was offered a position in the Bureau of Agriculture in 
Manila and at once left Goa. My office is assistant superin-

familiar with the Spanish language, having taken it at Har-

have been in the States but twice since 1901.

Starting out with the accumulated knowledge incidental to 
a bachelor's degree, I found it advisable, nevertheless, to 
tackle this cold and material world in a modest way and began 
life as a factory hand in Cincinnati. However, I had a pull 
with the boss; so, after a year of this I was raised to a title 
but not much increase in salary. In 1903 I emigrated to 
Missouri and started in the leather business for myself and 
haven 't finished yet. As a counter irritant for the annoyance 
of having to work for a living, I have taken an interest in 
various charitable and civic movements which consume much 
time and yield an ever increasing crop of troubles. I was 
once appointed to a vice committee without my sanction, but 
refused to serve, so my record is clear in that respect. I have 
grown too fat for tennis and my golf is rotten. I am happily 
married and have a daughter who is still too young to ap- 
preciate her great good fortune in the selection of her parent.

It seems unnecessary to repeat the history of my life from 
the time of my graduation down to 1911, all of which cor- 
rectly appears in the decennial report, for the benefit of those 
sufficiently interested to care to know 7 it. Since 1910 I have 
been an assistant examiner in the Patent Office, and during 
this time I have pursued the study of law, have received the 
degree of LL.B. from the George Washington University 
Law School and have been admitted to the bar of the Dis- 
trict of Columbia. The only other event of note in my life 
during this period was the decennial celebration of the Class

Even before college my dream of the architecture for a 
would-be student of the mind placed general education, 
medical study and a long hospital service as foundation 
necessities. Of these my two years' hospital service has 
been inestimable in keeping me "on the earth". It has led 
to an honest detestation for the one-sided specialist. Royce 
in college elicited my full admiration. I set my sail to him. 
I have now returned from the voyage to the haven of his 
seminary. I recall a talk with him in the yard once where 

401 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

I caught a mental momentum never to be forgotten. I am 
just beginning to realize my dream. Medical practice as a 
nerve specialist, the teaching of the pathology of the ner- 
vous system, literary work in medicine, the founding of new 
clinics, the developing of a new medical specialty — that of 
speech disorder — have filled my time since June, 1911. My 
practice is not large but is very select. I do much charity 
work. About half of my patients are nerve patients, the 
other half have speech disorders. I plan soon to give up pri- 
vate practice and devote all my time to research. My teach- 
ing has been in neuropathology in the Tufts Medical School. 
I developed this course from one of the poorest in the coun- 
try to the best. No other course begins with an autopsy on 
the brain and cord; none spends so much time, no one has 
such a varied neuropathological collection. None conscious- 
ly attempts to develop the visual type in man. Numerous 
articles have been the outcome of this teaching, but the most 
important to education is where I disclose the discovery of 
how to develop the hearing-slightly collaborating-writing- 
individual into the seeing-largely collaborating-talking-indi- 
vidual. Good work in this department of medicine led, in 
1912, to my change of title from assistant in neurology to 
assistant in neuropathology, and, in 1913, to instructor in 
neuropathology. I carried this work for two years when 
upon a change in school policy that prevented me from en- 
larging my department further, I resigned, June 2, 1915, to 
devote my time more exclusively to research in speech dis- 
order. In 1915 I offered a course in neurology and neuro- 
pathology in the new Tufts College Medical Summer School. 
In 1913 I gave a summer course to the assistants on service 
at the Boston City Hospital in the pathology of the nervous 
system. Later that year I delivered a course of ten lectures 
upon psychopath ology, and offered a course of twelve lec- 
tures upon "The Reflexes, their Technique and Signifi- 
cance". That summer I also read a course of lectures upon 
speech disorders at my new clinic — the voice clinic at the 
Boston City Hospital, psychopathic department. In 1914 
this expanded into ten lecture courses, all but one of which 

402

received applicants that summer. These courses contained 
six or twelve hour-lectures apiece, and in all over sixty lec- 
tures. The session closed with the presentation of five re- 
searches on speech disorder, four of which are now pub- 
lished. In 1915 the same ten courses were offered as well as 
ten new courses on subjects allied to speech, oral English, 
drama, neuropathology, etc. At the end of this summer ses- 
sion ten papers were read, eight by me and two by my as- 
sistant, Caroline A. Osborne, M.D., Ph.D., of Worcester, 
Mass. Seven of these are published. Monthly for ten 
months thereafter we held "Author's Evenings" of ten 
papers each to present results of the research of the past 
three years. The following titles will give a general idea of 
the ten papers under each : 1, Speech ; 2, The Voice in Neu- 
rology — a contribution to the Neurology of Childhood ; 3, 
a contribution to the Relation of Speech Problems to Mental 
Test Problems ; 4, a second contribution to the Neurology of 
Childhood; 5, a contribution to the Management of the 
Speech Disorder Problem in the Public Schools; 6, Medical In- 
spection of Speech Disorders in Public Schools; 7. a second 
contribution to the Psychological Problem of Universal Men- 
tal Measurement; 8, Activities of the Speech Mechanism 
among the Psychoses ; 9. Speech Aspects among the Feeble- 
Minded; 10, Developmental Psychology, — the formal launch- 
ing of a new psychological view-point. I might say a word 
about my speech survey of twenty cities. I visited eastern 
cities and gathered data on methods of attacking the speech 
disorder problem in public schools. The results were pre- 
sented in twenty papers under headings five and six above. 
Next year I plan to continue this survey West and South. 
Beyond this. I read eight papers to societies around Christ- 
mas. 1915, and for the coming spring meetings I am booked 
for eighteen papers. What this literary expansion means 
I know not. It has resulted in the offer of several new ap- 
pointments. — one in New York as director for speech disor- 
der in the public schools at a salary of four thousand dollars 
and another in the Harvard Graduate School of Medicine. 
The founding of new clinics has been my happiest privilege.

The voice clinic of the Boston State Hospital — psychopathic

I was put "in charge". On October 15, 1915, was founded, 
upon my application, the special clinic for speech disorder 
at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, in the de-

Coolidge. My wife, formerly Dr. Edith Hale (Radcliffe,

Homicide, Arson and Insurance, and later had charge of the 
work of that bureau. During my period of service in the 
district attorney's office, I had considerable experience in 
presenting cases to the grand jury, and was at various times 
assigned to trial work in the court of general sessions and in 
the court of special sessions. In the spring of 1913, I pre-

I have little to say that might interest 1901. My health 
breaking down two years after leaving Cambridge, I went 
west to California and circled back to Idaho, where I stayed 
practically all of the time until November, 1915, whan I re- 
turned to Pennsylvania to see if I could determine which 
was "God's country," the East or the West. Most of my 
western life was in construction work. The outdoor life in 
the mountains and on the desert has given me a constitution 
better than the average, an independence that is almost in- 
sufferable, but which have availed me little otherwise. Liv- 
ing as I have, I have met very few Harvard men, and hardly 
any from 1901, except as I have renewed my acquaintance on 
my trips east. If any 1901 men get to "Billtown" in the 
future, I shall be mighty glad to see them.

After leaving college, I had a few months in business, and 
then in March, 1902, entered the United States Army as a 
second lieutenant of artillery. My first three years were 
spent dt Forts Andrews and Banks in Boston Harbor, in 
drill, target practice with seacoast guns and study in garri- 
son schools. In 1903, I was on duty at the manoeuvres in 
Portland, Me., until I met a runaway freight car on a down 
grade which hit me harder and broke more bones in me 
than Shirley Ellis ever did on Soldiers Field ; at the time it 
made me think of life on the second eleven where the hittor 
had about as much compassion for the hittee as did that 
freight car. I received another thrilling introduction to Big 
Force turned loose at Fort Banks, Mass., in 1904, when a 
breech-lock blew out of a twelve-inch mortar, scattering 
three men in small pieces about the battery and severely 
wounding eleven others. In August, 1905, just as I was try- 
ing to muster up courage to ask for a vacation, I was given 
twenty-four hours to pack up and join my new company at 
Jackson Barracks, New Orleans, La., where troops were held to 
successfully demonstrate, for the first time, that a good-sized 
yellow fever epidemic could not even get a foothold against 
Regular Army sanitation. The next three years (after the epi- 
demic was stamped out) were most enjoyable, with light duties 
and plenty of recreation at the big winter race-tracks of

pointed adjutant. In August, 1908, I went to the Coast Ar- 
tillery School at Fort Monroe, Va., from which I was grad- 
uated in July, 1909. During the next two years, I served 
in turn as artillery engineer and ordnance officer, in the 
artillery district of New London, Conn., and regimental 
'commissary in a coast artillery brigade held at Galveston, 
Texas, as infantry, in anticipation of an expedition to Vera 
Cruz, Mexico. In January, 1911, I was promoted to cap- 
tain and in August of that year appointed inspector-in- 
structor of coast artillery reserves of Connecticut with about 
seven hundred and fifty officers and men to instruct. In 
February, 1913, I was ordered down to the coast defences 
of Mobile Bay, Ala., which I commanded for the last seven 
months of my service there. On October 20, 1913, 1 was in 
command of a provisional battalion, consisting of two com- 
panies and a band of coast artillery troops, en route to the 
state fair at Meridian, Miss., for a week's encampment. 
About two o'clock in the afternoon, while travelling at the 
rate of sixty miles an hour, our troop train plunged through 
a wooden trestle on the M. & O. R. R., into the bed of a 
shallow stream, twenty feet below. A description of that 
awful wreck, in which I lost seventeen men (killed) does 
not belong here. It is enough to say that the next twelve 
hours, in which I struggled, with two young second lieuten- 
ants and about forty men, all that were able to work, out of 
seven officers and one hundred and sixty-six men, to extri- 
cate my command and get the injured back to the nearest 
hospitals in Mobile, sixty-seven miles away, were frightful 
in the extreme. The next few months were spent in trans- 
ferring men, who were able to go to the Philippines, bring- 
ing men home from hospitals in Mobile, discharging those 
-who were crippled for life, and in training new recruits and 
re-equipping the command. In May, 1914, following the 
naval landing at Vera Cruz, I took the same two companies, 
wnth the necessary animals and camp equipage, to Browns- 
ville, Texas, where we went into camp on the Rio Grande,

After my sophomore year I left college in order to devote 
myself to the study of the piano. I was fortunate enough to 
be accepted as a pupil by Mr. Carl Baermann, at that time 
perhaps the most prominent pianist in Boston. Subsequently, 
also while living in Boston, much enlightenment came to me 
through a period of study with Mr. Harold Bauer, who en- 
couraged me greatly. At this same time I tried my apprentice 
hand at professional accompanying and concertizing in a small 
way, and held the position of organist in the First Congrega- 
tional Church at Dorchester, Mass. A short time previous my 
family had moved to Baltimore, Md., and the death there of

my remaining brother decided me, in October, 1904, to join 
them, as I could pursue my studies at the Peabody Institute. 
My work there with the brilliant pianist, Mr. Ernest Hutche- 
son, was greatly handicapped by continued ill-health, which 
culminated in several operations for appendicitis and its at- 
tendant results, followed by typhoid and scarlet fevers. After 
one year of convalescence I went to Berlin, in October, 1909, 
where I remained three years, studying with Alberto Jonas 
and Stepanoff. The fact that my strength had not fully re- 
turned determined me to go to Colorado. Here in Colorado 
Springs also an opportunity presented itself to continue my 
work as teacher begun in college and pursued extensively 
while in Boston, Baltimore and Berlin. Besides this I gave 
several piano and chamber music recitals in that city and in 
Denver. After my marriage in January, 1915, I continued 
teaching in Colorado Springs until the following October, 
when, accompanied by my wife, I sailed for South America for 
a pleasure trip of nine months.

The summer after graduating I spent in Europe and had, 
I hardly need say, a very interesting three months. On re- 
turning in the fall, I entered the Harvard Law School, and 
in 1904 received the degree of LL.B. I then came to New 
York City and was with the law firm of Simpson, Thacher 
and Bartlett until January 1, 1906, being admitted to the 
New York bar in February, 1905. After about two years 
more in the offices of Taylor and Anderson, I went into prac- 
tice under my own name, endeavoring to specialize in rail- 
road freight rate and transportation matters, of which I 
made a careful and as far as possible a practical study. 
For a year I was one of the trustees of the Brooklyn Traffic 
Club. In January, 1914, I became connected with the traffic 
department of the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey, 
and am devoting my energies to transportation and both 
state and interstate commerce law matters. While I play an 
occasional game of golf in summer, my chief forms of ex- 
ercise, particularly in winter, are walking part way home at 
night, and in imitation of the many gyrations of the 
Zwoboda System lief ore dressing in the morning. With the 
exception of a few vacations at Biddeford Pool on the 
Maine coast, we have spent our summers in or near New 
York on Long Island Sound, and a few years ago in Dongan 
Hills, Staten Island, which I had just "discovered." Last 
summer, however, we broke away from salt water habits and 
spent my vacation in the Adirondacks. I wrote an article on

Address 179 Watchung Ave., Montclair, N. J. 

I left Harvard in the spring of 1908 to finish at Wesleyan 
(Middletown, Conn.). My reason for leaving Harvard was 
simply and solely loneliness, the effect of youth, inexperi- 
ence and temperament. I fully enjoyed the professors and 
have a very warm spot in my heart for the dean. I went to 
Wesleyan because I had a number of Prep. School friends 
there. I graduated B.S. from Wesleyan in 1900 with Phi 
Beta Kappa and class orator. Went to Princeton Theologi- 
cal Seminary and while there attended lectures in Prince- 
ton graduate department in sociology. Left Princeton in 
spring of 1901. My reason for leaving was the unbearable 
orthodoxy and sloppy intellectual standards of the semi- 
nary. I entered Union Theological Seminary in the spring 
of 1901 and Columbia at the same time, taking sociology and 
economics at Columbia. I was graduated from Union Theo- 
logical Seminary, B.D., in 1903. Took a graduate year ex- 
tra and obtained degree of A.M., Columbia, in 1905. I en- 
tered the ministry as assistant pastor of First Congregation- 
al Church of Montclair, X. J., under Dr. Amory H. Brad- 
ford in 1901 and at the same time was pastor of Pilgrim 
Chapel (Montclair, N. J.). I married Miss Mary Eleanor 
AVilson in 1908, daughter of Dr. J. D. Wilson, of New York. 
I was called to Watchung Congregational Church in same 
town of Montclair in 1909, and have had a successful minis- 
try so far. Have been prison inspector for the Civic Asso- 
ciation of Montclair, and have founded many clubs, built 
up one institutional church and am now building up an 
unique church among suburban residents (Xew York 
business men). Have just finished raising the money for

property and a twenty-two thousand dollar Sunday School 
and community house, the idea in my mind being not only 
to get the church firmly established as far as plant is con- 
cerned, but in the community house feature to make it what 
you might call an institutional church for the solid and fine 
business man and his family, — a church with club and recre- 
ational features adapted not to the poor, but to the business 
man and his suburban needs. So far it is going very well. 
The spiritual idea of it being that the life and soul of the 
business men are worth as much as the life and soul of the 
lowly. I have written a book: The Young Malefactor (T. Y.

other with the designs for the Boston subways and tunnels 
and Elevated Railway as well as many of the large theatres 
and buildings. In 1903 and 1904 I was connected with the 
designs for the Harvard Stadium and part of the time had 
charge of the inspection work in the field. In the summer 
of 1904 I was one of the assistants at the Harvard En- 
gineering Summer School at Squam Lake. In June, 1906, I 
accepted a position as engineer for the Dominion Engineer- 
ing and Construction Company, Ltd., of Montreal, where for 
eight months I had charge of all designs for numerous rein- 
forced concrete and steel buildings. In February, 1907, I 
accepted a position as assistant engineer on the Panama 
Canal under John F. Stevens, at Washington, D. C, being 
promoted to designing engineer, Department of Lock and 
Dam Construction in June, 1907, and being transferred to 
Culebra. C. Z.. where I remained on designs for all the Canal 
locks and valves until all the difficult problems had been 
solved, resigning in August, 1911. In August, 1911, I ac- 
cepted a position as resident engineer in charge of construc- 
tion of the million dollar Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, op- 
posite the Harvard Medical School. Was there over one 
year. Then took a few months' vacation, and finally de- 
cided to hang out my shingle as consulting engineer in Seat- 
tle, whither I came in November, 1912. Talk about going 
through the "bread and butter" stage, in starting a new 
business, and at the end of the "seven lean years"! But 
we're still in the running and getting our second wind! I 
bought a small ranch down the Sound a few years ago, and 
have doubled the size of the house this last year. When 
business is too slack I stay at home and improve my prop- 
erty and my own health, which is always good, thank you. 
I am rapidly absorbing the western spirit (Oh, no, Washing- 
ton went dry January 1), and advise all easterners to come 
out here to this glorious land of promise. Say, it is Big out

The fall of 1901 saw my business career commence with 
the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in New York City, since 
which time I have stuck to the glass business in various 
capacities. I have found work at all times sufficiently brisk 
to keep me out of mischief, jail and politics. I am still of 
that overwhelming majority which has not knowingly writ- 
ten for publication. My leisure time of late years has been 
occupied in motoring, annual excursions to Harvard-Yale 
football games, and directing the steps of my son and heir. 
With a grandfather, a late trustee of Princeton, and three 
uncles, graduates of the same institution, my efforts to steer 
the young man in the right direction have been fraught with 
increasing gray hairs. To keep young, I exercise on tennis 
courts rather than on golf links. At this moment I am look- 
ing forward with great expectation to the quindecennial.

Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

The life of a student and writer affords no dramatic and 
picturesque incidents to relate. My tale is like that of many 
others: after four years of graduate study at Harvard and 
abroad, I began the routine work of teaching history which 
has ever since been my primary occupation. Three times I 
returned to Europe for a summer of research and was in 
London when the European war broke out. With six hun- 
dred other exiles, mostly teachers, I came home in the 
steerage of the American liner, St. Louis. It was an experi- 
ence to be remembered but neither dramatic nor pictur- 
esque. No immigrants being on board, we did not see Ellis 
Island. More recently, I have made trips to various cities 
to lecture which have invariably led to stimulating associa- 
tion with charming and cultured people. Yet, in the main, 
I have little to say except that greatest of all things : that I 
have enjoyed to the full those quiet satisfactions of profes- 
sional and family life which are so precious to experience 
but so difficult to describe. The list of my books indicates 
adequately enough the scope, character, and sequence of my 
interests. For many years, my chief recreation was derived 
from concerts, from attempts to play the violin and piano 
myself, and from dabbling in musical composition. I re- 
vived last spring that antediluvian pastime, the bicycle. 
Perhaps professors of history have a sort of license to experi- 
ment with these forgotten sensations so as to keep the pres- 
ent in contact, so to speak, with its own past. I have writ- 
ten : The Presbyterian Movement in the time of Queen Eliza- 
beth (edited for the Royal Historical Society, London, 
1905) ; The Reconstruction of the English Church (2 vols., 
New York, 1910) ; Pan-Germanism (Boston, 1913) ; Rise and

From 1905 until 1908, I was in the office of Burrage and 
Hayden, Boston; and from 1908 until September, 1915, I 
maintained my own offices. During the summer of 1907, I 
spent three months in Europe, travelling through northern 
Italy. Austria, and Switzerland, ending my trip in Paris. I 
was appointed in 1914 by Governor Walsh to prepare a 
table showing the changes made in the revised laws of Mas- 
sachusetts by subsequent legislation which table is in con- 
stant use by the bench and bar. I was re-appointed to per- 
form this task in 1915. This is the only public office I have 
held and can hardly be termed a political one. I will con- 
fess, however, that in 1912 I ran for school committeeman in 
Newton — fortunately without success. In September of last 
year I formed a law partnership with I. R. Clark and Albert 
E. Little, with offices at 54 Devonshire Street, Boston, the

One little word gives you my account for years after leav-

to New York to study law, without a sou. My first job in a 
law office carried as compensation a percentage of such col- 
lections as I was able to make, together with fees for serv- 
ing papers. I worked from 9 A. M. to 6 P. M. for five 
months in that office, receiving $1.00 for serving a summons. 
As for collections, there wereirt any. Of the one dollar, I 
paid out ninety cents for a certified copy of an order I was 
instructed to get. I am still out that ninety cents; so that 
my compensation amounted to two cents a month. Then for- 
tune smiled me into a job that brought a check each month. 
I went to law school, was admitted to practice, have con- 
ducted some important litigations, and have been very fortu- 
nate in trial work. T have the finest little family and the 
prettiest little home on the Hudson a man could want.

As some apology must be made to those of the rotund 
figures and bald pates it may be well to begin with the early 
fears that are created in being reared in a "prep" school 
close to the prosaic Radcliffe Eves. Our school windows 
looked out upon that Harvard appendix and our childish 
eyes were wont to follow the antics of those kittenish 
maids. Four years followed of slow recovery, years of 
childish blandishment, filled with angel choirs, whose voices 
and faces have bound our hearts together. Then came the 
parting and like autumn leaves we scattered. Dreading the 
monotony of "How to eat and grow fat" one leaf blew to 
the West, landed on the eyebrow of a friendly mountain and 
there for eight years became one of nature's children. The 
past years have been spent nursing a corporation baby, 
whose playthings seem to constitute special patented auto- 
matic machines for the sharpening of its own teeth as well 
as those of saws, and other little things, etc. So ends the 
story of one non-insured, irresponsible bachelor who patient- 
ly awaits that inevitable end to which the City Fathers 
drift,— either the Call of the Wild or the Call of the Child.

During the years 1911 and 1914, inclusive, I examined 
numerous mineral properties in thirty-nine states, the eleva- 
tions varying from 12,000 feet ahove the sea level to 300 
feet below. The values of the properties, as stated by the 
owners, were all above sea-level. During 1913, while on a 
business trip to Europe, T examined three very large plants 
in France and Germany. Owing to the strain on my 
linguistic accomplishments, my speech has not yet recovered. 
I doubt whether my informants are even convalescing. In 
November, 1914, I was transferred from the Solvay Process 
Company to the Semet Solvay Company, and became as- 
sistant manager of the department of special manufactures. 
What we are not making now we expect to make day after 
tomorrow. Like the Israelite who had just been kicked 
down three flights of stairs by relays of irate partners, I look 
up the stairs and remark. "Moses! What a system!" In De- 
cember, 1914. as chairman of the committee on arrangements 
for the visit of the Harvard Musical Clubs, I achieved a new 
point of view of the rewards of loyalty, — principally from 
the direction of four o'clock in the morning. In March, 
1915, I gave a talk before the American Institute of Mining 
Engineers on some matters developed in the course of my 
prospecting. During the period since the decennial I have 
remained a member of Troop D, First New York Cavalry. I 
was first sergeant in 1913, but obliged to vacate this grade 
owing to frequent absence. During the seasons 1910-1911, 
and 1915-1916 I was chairman of the small arms committee, 
and was high man on the regimental rifle team at Peekskill, 
September, 1915. During the years 1911-1915, inclusive, my 
troop won first place, headquarters division, N. GT. N. Y., at 
annual small arms practice ; and during the years 1913 and 
1914 was first in the state. During 1915 we again won first in 
the state by a wide margin, but lost on a technicality (re-

Biographical Sketches 

From 1901 to 1903 I was at Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, taking a course in electrical engineering. I was 
selected by the faculty to read a thesis representing electri- 
cal course on graduation. I was president of Electrical En- 
gineering Society for senior year. From 1903 to 1904 I was 
with the National Tube Company, Wheeling, W. Va., as 
foreman of metal yard in steel mill. From 1904 to 1906 I 
was with the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing 
Company in shop, engineering and construction depart- 
ments. From 1906 to date, with Pittsburgh Railways Com- 
pany which operates the street-car system in the City of 
Pittsburgh and surrounding territory. On January 1, 1910, 
I was advanced to the position of electrical engineer. In 
this position I have responsible charge of operation of the 
entire electrical end of the system. The installation of 
18,000 K.W. in turbo generators at Brunots Island power 
house occurred during this period, and I have been intimate- 
ly associated with the pioneer troubles, both steam and 
electrical, experienced with these machines, which were 
among the first of their class. As a result of our experience 
with disastrous short circuits on the 11,000 volt cable sys- 
tem in 1910 and 1911. I recommended at that time the in- 
stallation of external reactance coils in the high tension 
feeders instead of the generator leads, an economical plan 
where the feeders are not many and particularly advanta- 
geous in reducing disturbances of bus bar voltage and the 
liability of knocking off synchronous apparatus. This has 
since been done, effectively improving the service. The con- 
clusions from this experience were incorporated in a paper 
of joint authorship presented at the October. 1913, A. E. R. 
A. convention. 1 have had under my direction during this 
period the design and installation of eight new sub-stations- 
ranging from 600 K.W. to 7,500 K.W. in capacity. In 1907 
our load dispatching system was inaugurated by me. This 
method of handling the distribution of load between sta- 
tions was necessitated by our operation of A.C. generating 
stations in parallel over a number of tie lines with sub- 
stations connected at intermediate points. The results of 

439 



Class of 1901 — Fourth Report 

this experience were embodied in a paper on ''Parallel Op- 
eration" in the March, 1912, A. I. E. E. proceedings which I 
read at the Pacific Coast Convention in Portland, Ore., April, 
1912. I have been responsible for all additions and changes 
in our D.C. feeder system and have conducted various tests 
as a basis of calculating extensions and an extensive re- 
vision of the present system which has resulted in a more 
ecnomical use of copper. In the car equipment department I 
have been intimately associated with Mr. Jones and Mr. Phil- 
lips of this company in the design and development of the 
light-weight Pittsburgh "low fioor" car, the "double-decker" 
and a radically new electric control equipment, on all of 
which we have various sole and joint patents allowed and 
pending. The "low fioor" car uses four "baby" motors 
(30 H.P.) mounted on 24-inch wheels and has reduced the 
car weights from about 49,000 pounds to 35,000 pounds. 
The electric control scheme relates to the method of combin- 
ing the motors during acceleration and results in the almost 
total elimination of rheostatic losses amounting to ten per 
cent, or more. In June, 1913, I was appointed traffic agent 
in addition to retaining my duties as electrical engineer. I 
am now chairman of the power generation committee of the 
American Electric Railway Engineering Association, having 
held this office during the years 1914-1915 and from 1915 to 
date. I have written : Paper on Reactance in Power Stations 
(read at the 1914 A. E. R. A. Convention), article on The 
Load Dispatching System of the Pittsburgh Railwaj^s Com- 
pany (The Electric Journal, October, 1914), paper on Safety

Early in July, 1901. I accepted a place with the Universi-

at that time became President Eliot's secretary. I was an 
unsuccessful successor and was gently but firmly advised of 
the fact at the end of six weeks. At my own request I was 
granted permission to work as an apprentice, learning to set 
type and studying the mysteries of "make ready" and 
presswork. After gaining a fair smattering of the printing 
processes, I "hired out" to Mr. D. B. Updike, owner of the 
famous Merrymount Press, where I continued to learn about 
printing for two years. Chance brought about an opening 
in the George W. Wheelwright Paper Company., so in the 
fall of 1903 I donned the overalls and began a two years' 
apprenticeship in the art of paper making. In 1905 I grad- 
uated to the sales department. This entailed a semiannual 
trip through the large cities east of Omaha which has en- 
abled me to keep in personal touch with many old friends of

for the Phoenix Iron Works, Utiea. N. Y. I left this com-

Works after six months and went into the real estate and

During this time the Cobalt mining boom was on and I en-

$800 and I with $200. The next morning I discovered that
