Class of 1890 




Theological Seminary, 

CLASS OF 4890 


G. W. Burroughs, Book and Job Printer. 

Princeton Theological Seminary. 

At the Class Meeting, May 5th, 1890, the following were elected 
officers of the Class : C. H. Whitaker, President, and F. B. Everitt, 
Secretary and Treasurer. It was resolved to have a Reunion of the Class 
in 1892. Accordingly, on May 3d, 1892, in response to the call at the 
President, the following members answered the roll-call in Stuart Hall : 
Carrington, Erskine, Everitt, Gates, Parker, Thompson, Warne, Whitaker 
and Wylie. It was resolved to meet again in 1895. The report of the 
Secretary was read and ordered published. He, therefore, issues this 
pamphlet, asking the indulgence of the Class, and tru.sting that it will 
aiford them as much pleasure in the reading as it gave him in the writing.

labored night and day to give these men the Gospel. Doughty has an inter- 
esting article in " Church at Home and Abroad " for June, 1895.

in gifts. But Board says, " the Beirut Mission must cut expenses $4,222.22." 
It staggers us. We must give up what we have prayed for and worn our- 
selves out in doing. I feel that the Church at home had taken away all the 
good that I have been able to accomplish since I came to Syria nearly five 
years ago. We have' to fiice now the question, "What! don''t your Church 
stand by you better than that?" (Bro. Jessup's letter was sad, indeed, to 
your Secretary. From private sources I learn that Jessup will hold his 
post, even if he has to do it without any salary.

Finally forced to do it, and left Cheung Mai, Dec. 21, '94. Grew worse at 
once, and died in Singapore Hospital after an operation for hepatic abscess. 
The operation was successful, but he was too weak to rally. When he entered 
the hospital he said " I am going either to heaven or to America. I think I 

;\m going to heaven." Shortly before his death he said, " I had hoped I was 
going home, but I am going to heaven." His widow, who is in this country 
withhis two children (one by his former wife), sums up his characteristics as 
" Consistency, promptness and faithfuhiess." No sacrifice was too great for 
his Lord and Master.

child. Now visiting in the east, and may settle here. 

Rankin. Died June 5, 1894, at Baltimore. Born May 24, 1866. Grad-

accessions in seven months. Taken sick May 31, with acute pain in abdomen. 
Found to be appendicitis. Operation performed Monday ; seemed better, but 
at night unfavorable symptoms set in. He knew the end had come, but 
talked hopefully, triumphantly looking to his " Heavenly home." Died at 
1:15 A. M. on Tuesday, from chronic appendicitis. Rankin, although one of 
our youngest members, was dearly beloved by all, and his end is particularly 
sad, 'as there seemed so much promise in his life. He left a widow and three 
children. Wylie and your secretary attended the funeral services, which 
were very impressive. 

Remington. Holyoke, Mass. New church in prospect, costing $15,000.

rug and prays for the tlock, when needed." If any of the class are near him, 
just yell " Smith-.— three loaves, please." 

Warne. Moderator of New Brunswick Presbytery. 

Whitaker. Bushkill, Pa. Unmarried. 

The rest of the boys are moving on in the " even tenor " of their way at 
the same places, as recordad in the printed record of 1892, copies of which 
can still be obtained of the Secretary, free. 

Nine members gathered around the festive board at Princeton, on May 
6th, viz. : Whitaker, Trompen, Wylie, Parker, Levingood, Warne, Oates, 
Paton and Everitt. Mrs. Trompen was also present. The Secretary read a 
report of the Class, arranged according to age, and then each fellow told of 
his work and experiences. Our circle lessens on earth, but widens in Heaven. 

F. B. EVERITT, Secretary.

Read May 3d, 1892. 

''Novos atnicos dum paras veteres, cole.'' "Whilst you seek new 
friendships, cultivate the old," or in Gardner's laconic style, freely trans- 
lated, " Whilst you are tackling new men, guard well the old ones." 

Classmates, we have been out in the world these two years, trying 
new friendships, but come back to-day to the old shades, to renew, to 
make fast the old ties. We have found pleasure in the new, but delight in 
the old. Doubtless in our wanderings, Princeton reminiscences have so 
crowded our memories and Princeton theology our minds, that we have 
said with Addison, 

" For wheresoe'er I turn my ravished eyes. 
Gay gilded scenes and shining prospects rise, 
Poetic fields encompass me around. 
And still I seem to tread on classic ground." 

Now, if he had been a little less amplitudinous, and had only left the 
"ground " off, so that it would read "tread on classic(s)," then we can see 
Bob Rankin smile as he recalls how he ventilated his Latin on Dr. Patton, 
but the ominous "translate it," ventilated .something else. 

Of course, we have all kept up our Catechism and have discovered the 
fallacies of the composite character of some of our questions, e. g. " How 
many Gods are there ?' ' Now, anybody can see the compositeness of that, 
having a little of Catechism but more of -. 

Then " Wellhausen " has been a wonderful help to us. It fits in so 
nicely after the introduction and remarks about the weather. And for an 
after dinner talk, nothing is quite so analogous as the " Hebrew Feasts." 

We really tremble for Princeton. Not for her orthodoxy — oh, no, not 
as long as our beloved Dr. Green and his associates live ; not for her 
financial endowment ; not for her increase of .students, for the of '90 
promises to do her share ; not for the magnificence of her buildings, as 
one after another arises to beautify these lovely grounds ; not for the 
worth of her sons, as Honor crowns their brows ; but really — for the 
demure character of the campus, since one by one the boys of '90 laid 

aside their field regimentals and put on their broadcloth. Did you not 
see a "paling of the green" when Warne hung up his knickerbockers, 
Seel3'e handed over the "racquet that never came," John Moore laid aside 
his "bloody shirt" (football blood), Gardner pulled in his mascot and 
Phraner pulled up his war horse ? But daj^s of campus frolic are 
over, and long will they abide, as morning dew, in our memory. 

We are here — and I am ashamed of the whole set of you, for, like Jim 
Williams, you all swore that any place was better than Jersey. And like 
the Israelite of old, you fled as if from bondage, when — the Directors said 
you could go. And here you are back again, and we only ask a tarrying 
long enough in this "intermediate State" to learn from the past how to 
prepare for the future. 

Seriously, my classiuates, we have been truly blessed of our Father, 
and we can all honestly "thank God and take courage." Death has 
spared its reaping from our immediate ranks, though it has crept very 
sorely into our brothers' homes, while from the old familiar faces of Stuart 
Hall there have gone no less than three — Drs. Moffat, Hodge and Aiken. 
No spokesman can speak the feeling of the class, as our loss is not collect- 
ive but individual. Their imprint on our individual lives is unmistakable. 
Genial in the home, faithful in the class-room, and earnest in their labors, 
they proved themselves "workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, 
rightly dividing the word of truth." Their memories are ours, their 
work is ours, may their glory be ours. 

For these afflicted ones, and our own good brothers, Phraner and 
Carrington, so recently bereaved in the loss of their wives, our prayers 
should to-day arise. May the Lord's uplifted countenance be upon them, 
and the rainbow of His promises embrilliant their overhanging clouds. 

The circular of your Secretary is familiar to all, and, for matters of 
reference, we will review the replies in alphabetical order. 

Crofton Craig Adams. 

Well, the class of '90 should be the most blessed class that ever went 
out of the Old Chapel. For her first man was born in Eden (Ohio) and 
his name is Adam(s). But Adam fell — notably into the hands of matri- 
mony — "and all mankind, descending from him by ordinary generation" 
tScc, notably Rankin, the married and Nelson the "wanted 
to he married" man in the class. Craig is the same old fellow, for he is 
tlie only fellow in the whole class that tried to get off a pun in his letter. 
We all remember his embryonic efforts in that direction. He is Pastor oi 
the First Presbyterian Church of Smyrna, Del., being installed there by 
the Presbytery of Newcastle on June 12, 1890. In the line of special 
study, he has devoted himself to "Miracles and Parables," while "monu- 
ments and niumies" akso occupy some of his attention. To keep up with 
the linguistic qualifications of Arthur Glenn Adams (born Sept. 21, '91), 
he is pursuing assiduously Greek, Hebrew, French and (ierman. Just 
which of these languages the youngster talks now, or will talk hereafter, 


we are not told. And inspired by this self-same music in the house, he 
has started a music class in his church, himself the conductor. Adams 
is an occasional writer for the Presbyterian. Reports 500-700 pastoral calls 
a year. In the fall of 1890 (Sept. 9) he was married to Miss McKinney, 
daughter of Rev. W. W. McKinney, D. D., of the Presbyterian. Adams 
is not with us to-day, owing to special revival services in his church, 
begun recently by an evangelist. He has divided his membership into 
prayer-bands, and desires the prayers of his classmates for God's blessing 
on their labors. 

William Allen, Jr. 
Allen is located at (ilen Moore, Chester county. Pa. He was installed 
over the Fairview Church, May 29, 1890. He was married Oct. 29, 1890, 
to Miss Lampen, of Philadelphia. He has adopted "serial preaching" for 
his evening discourses, taking different books of the Bible. He has re- 
ceived thirteen into membership. 

Neal L. Andekson. 

Neal was from the "Sunny South," and at once returned to his former 
love, after graduation, having accepted a call to Marion, Ala. He was 
ordained and installed there on Nov. 30, 1890. In November, 1891, he re- 
ceived a call to the newly organized Central Presbyterian Church of 
Montgomery, Ala. He became its first Pastor on Feb. 14, 1892. His work 
in Marion was largely among the students of its famous educational in- 
stitutions, and with the aid of an evangelist, a fellow-alumnus of Prince- 
ton, fourteen were added to his church on profession. Montgomery, his 
present location, is a town of 30,000 inhabitants, of remarkable beaut}' 
and growth. His church began with only thirty-three members, but has 
now doubled, is self-supporting and preparing to build a handsome, 
modern edifice. 

On Aug. 14, 1S90, he found a partner in Miss Nannie Faison, daugh- 
ter of Major W. L. Faison, of Clinton, N. C, and one .son shares their 
home life. We are glad to see that Neal has already booked him for the 
class of 1914, Princeton Theological Seminar}'. 

William A. Annin. 

Who would think that Annin was a native of the Jerse}- Pines, being 
born at Cedarville. 'Tis true, that Senior senntMi of liis was rather 
tar-tar-ic and highly-pitched, but its theology did not slick after all in the 
cranium of Dr. Paxton. Whether or not that disgusted Annin, he gave 
up preaching for teaching and settled at once in the Kemper I'amily 
School of Boonville, Mo., where he has been ever since and "will likel\- 
be for some time to come." It.SvUiilitar}- character is well adapted to his 
stately bearing and we predict his success, the more so, because Annin is 

a fearfully conscientious fellow, and even anticipates all his debts. At 
least he forwarded your Secretary the handsome sum of one dollar. 
Annin is the first one of our boys to announce "not married, but engaged." 

William S. Bannkrman. 
How our hearts are .stirred for the boys on the foreign field. We 
admire their self-sacrifice, and earnest devotion. Bannerman is the first 
one of our list to greet us from "over the line" (Canada.) No letter direct 
has as yet been received from him, but a recent letter is published in the 
May number of the Church at Hotne and Abroad. From it we gather the 
sale arrival of himself and wife at Gaboon, West Africa, their continued 
health, and their delight in the work. They are zealously learning the 
Pangwe and Mpongwe languages. The natives seem eager, yea, even im- 
patient to hear the truth and the doors are, in very fact, wide open. 
Through Johnson, we learn that Bannerman has a young son. 

Henry C. Baskerville. 
Baskerville has the honor of being the " Patriarchus Maximus" of 
the Although coming to us only in the Senior year, he at once 
identified hini.self with our interests and affections. He is .settled at 
Centre Hall, Pa., being in.stalled in 1890 over the Sinking Creek and 
Spring Mills Churches. He was married before entering the Seminary. 

Seelye Bryant. 

From the oldest to the youngest is quite a jump. But, beg pardon, 
Seelye is not the youngest, although he liked to pose as such. He would 
liked to have been, yes, he would have been, had not Hedges and Sam 
Polk "stolen the march" on him. It was mean in them to do it, but 
then ! — 

From his letters we gather that he is located in a worldly. Unitarian 
town of Massachusetts, Lancaster by name. He has returned to the faith 
of his fathers, being installed Oct. 1, 1890, over the Evangelical (Cong.) 
Church of that town. He has had good success, the church receiving 
more additions in his .short Pa.storate than in the "preceding two com- 
bined." He is President of their Local Union of Y. P. S. C. E. On May 
12, 1891, he concluded, with the help of Margaret Fergu.son McLean, 
of the same town, that it "was not good for man to be alone." Well, 
vSeelye, we hope yotir married lile will be as joy-bringing to you as the 
presence of your "red, white and blue paradigms" (to quote Dunlap) were 
to lis. Wc miss them — yes, and we miss you to-da}-. 

Kent M. Bull. 
Ajiril Hjtli is a great historical day. For then, in '75, fell the first 
blood of the Revolution at Concord and Lexington. Then, in '61, fell the 

first blood of the Civil war in the Baltimore riots, and on that very day 
Kent Bnll added his noise to the melee, although not in Baltimore. From 
that day to the Freshman foot-ball game, there was a good deal of gore 
about Bull, but the climax was reached on the foot-ball arena, back of 
Edwards Hall, and Bull has been known ever since as a peaceable man. 
He is located at Nottingham, Chester county. Pa., being installed Pastor 
over that church on May 28, 1890. We fear Bull is "tackling too hard," 
for he writes that he has not been absent from his pulpit one Sabbath, and 
adds, significantly, '"results are encouraging." On Dec. 2, 1891, he was 
married to Miss Mary Ann Pollock. 

Henry M. Campbell. 

In virtue of the last remark, we will now introduce Henry Campbell 
with his favorite song, " My Mary Ann." Those of us who had to endure 
that song at Burroughs' will appreciate this remark. Campbell came to 
us in Middle year, primed with Alleghany theology. He found Prince- 
ton fellows quite congenial, the Faculty more so, and the Directors most 
so, and he concluded to remain. When he left he carried to Missouri with 
him a good share of the esteem of his classmates. He entered upon his 
work, as Stated Supply, at Monett, JNIo., in July, supplying two churches. 
In spite of many discouragements in that over-churched town, he held on 
till he was called to the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Kansas City, as 
succeSvSor to your Secretary. There he was installed Oct. 5, 1891, and the 
work has grown slowl}' but surely. As to matrimonial prospects, he 
writes "expect to be married soon." 

Richard J. Campbell. 

Campbell showed the utter fallacy of that Brown Hall joke, perpe- 
trated on him as the "late" Mr. Campbell, by sending in his reply 
promptly. He came to us in vSenior year, fresh from the sea isle of 
Ireland. He writes "went straight to Joseph, Ore., where I labored in 
the Presbyterian Church till last summer, when I took a run through 
other parts of Oregon and Washington and stirred up some weak mission 
churches, and they were anxious that I should remain wherever I went. 
I then went to the Puget Sound country, Washington, but not falling in 
love with that country, I came to California and took to Menlo Park and 
it to me. This place is in the center of a very wealthy part of California, 
popular by reason of many millionaire's residences here and about. Also, 
it is within half an hour's walk of the famous vStanford Universit}^ where 
.1 can hear the best men of the day." He is there as Stated Supply over 
a church of thirty-three members, is boarding at a hotel, expects to attend 
the Portland Assembly, and is neither married nor engaged. So we leave 
him to head the "estate of single blessedness." 



We are here face to face with the strange Providences of God. When 
two hearts have become one, and that one heart put into God's hands, 
how vSeemingly strange to have it torn by death. But the mystery of His 
dealings is beyond our ken, and we only wait the dispensation of the 
fulness of time, when "we shall know even as we are known." 

Carrington was ordained June 17, 1890, as Evangelist to Brazil, and 
was married on Aug. 10, 1890, to Miss Clara Emery, of Washington. 
They sailed two days later for Sao Paulo, which they reached on Sept. 22. 
There they remained studying the language until March 12, i8gi,' when 
they settled at Rio Claro, 120 miles N. W. of Sao Paulo, a town of about 
7,000 people. There they studied the language with the native preacher. 
At the August meeting of Presbytery, Carrington was appointed as Pastor 
interino of a portion of Mr. Dagama's field, with residence in Rio Claro. 
He began work there in September with six or seven preaching points, 
and continued with apparent success until all his work was stopped by 
the death of his wife. That scene is best described in his own words : 

"I was called home by a telegram informing me of my wife's illness. 
I did not expect anything serious, as Rio Claro was some 2,000 feet above 
the sea-level, and exempt, as it was claimed, from the fevers which harass 
the low-lying coa.sts. I was agonized to find her almost at death's door, 
and with a fatal disease (yellow fever) M'hose name I had heard but never 
realized. Six hours after I left her on the i8th of December, her temper- 
ature leaped to the appalling figure of nearly 106° Fahr., while her pulse 
ranged between 135 and 140. In three or four days the fever subsided, the 
temperature settling below the normal. On the 24th hemorrhages set in, 
leading to facial meningitis. She was uncon.scious from the afternoon of 
Christmas day and died with scarcely a struggle at midnight of Saturda}^ 
Dec. 26,. 1891. Her resignation in the presence of death to the will of her 
Saviour was sweet and trustful. She felt that God had called her to lay 
down her life there in His cause. She realized that every human means 
available had been exhausted and that her life's work was done." 

"How blest the righteous when he dies" is all we can say ; our hearts 
are bowed, our prayers ascend, God's will be done. A link that has 
bound us to the "Class home" has been broken, but, in the breaking, has 
linked us to the heaven-home. Our sympathies, our prayers, are with 
our bereaved brother, who with his little daughter, Clara Emery Carring- 
ton, (born June 14, 1S91,) has returned to this country. Because of the 
Board's desiring married men in Romanist countries, he will not return. 
He is now vStated Supply over the Taconia and Kensington churches, in 
the suburbs of Washington, D. C. ' His home address is 1334 Q, N. W., 
Washington, D. C. He returned on a ves.sel on which were eighteen cases 
of yellow fever and four deaths from the same, but he mercifully escaped 
the disease. 

R. H. Carson. 
Carson entered our class in Senior year, and was one of the first to 
receive a call. He was installed Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church 
of Stillwater, N. Y., on May ii, 1890. He entered the work with his 
usual energ\-, and has almost broken down through over-wprk. Forty- 
three have been added to his church, thirt\^-five of them on Profession. 
He is Superintendent of his Sunday School and Bible Class teacher as 
well. He has been invited to preach at three different times in vacant 
churches, but declined. Not married, nor engaged, as "can't find a girl." 

George M. Cummings. 
George has at last found a congenial clime, as he is in a place of 
acknowledged short-comirigs. For he has gone to the wicked region 
of the Black Hills, which Henry Campbell would call the "ante-room to 
hell." His first year was spent in preparation, we presume, in the City 
of Brotherh' Love, where he had charge of the Educational work of the 
Y. M. C. A., and was also Secretary,' of the principal Philadelphia Centre 
of University Extension. Whether or not they tired of him or he of them, 
he gave up his work and entered the pioneer corps of frontier workers. 
He was ordained Dec. 2-], icSgi, and has now charge of the churches of 
Newcastle, \Vyoming and Edgemont, S. D. His Wyoming church has 
six members, five of whom are women, and j-et George declares he is a 
"bachelor with a vengeance." He would like the work if he could confine 
himself to only one field, but hardly thinks that he will remain there very 
long. His message to the class is in Luke 18 : 29, 30 : "There is no man 
who hath not left house, or parents or brethren, or wife or children, for 
the Kingdom of God's sake, who shall not receive manifold more in this 
present time and in the world to come, life everlasting." 

James W.. Doughty. 
Dought3''s reply reached us after the Reunion. He is at Yamaguchi, 
Japan, "studying the worst gibberish ever spoken b}' man." He has 
been teaching in the girl's school. The field is ver}' promising, with a 
large native church and flourishing school. On June 12, 1890, he was 
married to Miss Brooks Cozine, and one child, Helena by name, graces 
the home. Our prayers are with you, dear brother, in 3'our discourage- 
ments, as well as successes. (The Japanese hieroglyphics on the outside 
of the letter were interesting, but needed one of Ned Miller's foot-notes!) 


Dunnie comes from the Buckeye State. Now, a Buckej^e belongs to 
the genus "horse-chestnut." Draw 3'our own conclusions, and for your 
help recall the story of the "ladders." But Hazlitt says, "Wit is the salt 
of conversation." That saves Dunnie from being stjded fresh. For the 
''bon mot'' ingredients in the Dunlap character are proverbial. Dunlap 


and Kansas City get along well together and he is there still, the Pastor 
of the Linwood Presbyterian Church. This is one of his own founding, 
and he never tires of telling of his first Sunday School there, "out under 
the trees" — the balmy trees — the breezy trees, &c. Then they went a 
little higher — there j^ou are again, the "ladders" — and met in the third 
story of a "corner lot." (Now that sounds like Dunnie's Western rabbit 
story.) They entered their new and neat little church building on Feb. 
I, 1891. They organized Oct. 12, 1890, with eighteen members, and now 
number fifty-eight. A very flourishing Sunday School is held. The first 
year the church raised for the Pastor's salary- $600, and this j-ear $650. He 
is not married and "no prospect, either immediate or remote." He is 
enjoying his work thoroughl5% and from what we know b3- personal 
observation is verj^ popular and successful. His occasional expeditions 
with the rod and gun meet his taste exactly, and he adds, by way of 
parenthCvSis, "long on funerals, short on weddings." My only regret is 
that Thompson did not sell Dunlap a typewriter. 

George A. T. Eddy. 
Edd}-, Valedictorian of the Class of '86, Princeton College, and Clas- 
sical Fellow of our class, is located at Beverly-, N. J., being installed 
April 29, 189 1. During the summer of 1S90 he supplied the pulpit of the 
First Presbyterian Church of Washington, D. C. Then for one 3'ear he 
pursued his studies in Princeton, as Fellow in Greek. He was married 
June 4, 1890, to Miss Rose Gabriel, of Cleveland, Ohio, and "one vigorous" 
youngster, now ten -months old, by name Alfred Gabriel Edd}-, enlivens 
the home. He has not yet been entered at Princeton, but undoubtedly 
will be. 

James S. E. Erskine. 
Erskine led the Anti-Revision forces on to victory in that wonderful 
"Mock Presbytery." He is located at Thompson Ridge, Orange count}-, 
N. Y., being installed Pastor over the Hopewell church on June 17, 1890. 
He was soon taken sick with malarial fever, and unable to preach for 
three months, dragged himself along for four months, then obliged to rest 
for three months. He resumed work in April, 1891, and is gaining in 
health, weighing about thirty pounds more than he did in the Seminar}-. 
He has received tw-enty-two on Confession. "The greatest awakening 
was when I was unable to do any Pastoral work or preaching." He is 
twelve miles from Thompson, and unmarried. 

Frank B. Everitt. 
Was ordained in his home church as Evangelist on May 9, 1S90. On 
June 9 he left the home of boyhood and youth for "greater worlds to con- 
quer." He lingered long enough at the great International C. E. Conven- 
tion at St. Louis to report its daily proceedings to the New York Tribune 
and Mail and Express. He began his labors in Kansas Cit}- in the latter 


part of June, lla^'ing charge of the Fourth Presbj-terian Church and the 
Walrond Avenue INIission. To the former he was called as Pastor in the 
Fall, but in the Spring declined it, having received a call to a much more 
promising field in East Trenton, in connection with the Chapel of the 
First Chiirch. During his stay in Kansas Cit3- his church nearl}- trebled 
in membership, mostly b\- letter. Since coming to Trenton on Aug. ist 
he has received forty-five members, thirty-two of them on Profession. 
Our Sunday- School numbers 550, pra^-er meetings large, audiences in- 
•creasing, and interest constant. All kinds of industrial work are carried 
on in connection with the Chapel, as Drawing. Music, ^Nlilitarj-, Manual 
Training, Sewing and Kindergarten Classes. The church contributions 
"have increased b}- nearh- $1,000 in the past 5-ear. Prospects are good for 
a strong church. Stud}- at a minimum, practical work at a maximum. 
His opinion of the West is terselj- this, "A bad place for bachelors," of 
which he is most decidedh* one. He is one of the Vice-Presidents of the 
State C. E. Union, and in Sept., 1890. he took a flying trip through 
Colorado and Utah. 

Fraxk L. Eraser. 
We are glad to chronicle that Frank is at last settled over a Pastorate, 
and near his Manitoba home at that, viz., at Hallock. Minn., as Stated 
Supply. After graduation he spent the summer in Dickinson, N. D. ; 
then the winter in Boissevain, ^Manitoba, where he had charge of three 
•churches. He preached three times a Sabbath, his afternoon service being 
eight miles out of town. He reports thirty-five additions on Profession 
there. The}- gave him a call there, but he declined, intending to go to 
the foreign field. He spent that summer at his old mission field along 
the sea, at New Brunswick, Can. In the fall he returned to Princeton to 
resume his studies. About the middle of Januar}- he accepted a call to 
the Presbj-terian Church of Manchester, N. J. But he has since declined 
it, owing to the failure of the church to build a new manse. Eraser is 
■engaged, he says, to "one of the sweetest girls irK.,tJie country," but does 
not look for marriage yet for some time to come. Frank, look out for 
"the sweetness long drawn out." 

Frank W. Eraser. 
We came near missing this Eraser. But after .several "tracers" we 
found him still "burning the midnight oil," this time under the elms of 
Harvard. He supplied the church of Langhorne, Pa., during the summer, 
but left on Sept. 25 for Yale, where he studied along the lines of Philoso- 
ph}- and N. T. Criticism, receiving the degree of B. D. on presentation of 
thesis on "The Enc3-lical Character of Ephesians." On the strength of 
this he received appointment bj- the Harvard Faculty- to the Divinity 
Fellowship. He went to Cambridge on Oct. ist, where he has since been, 
especiall}' investigating the Johannine question. He has now accepted a 
call to the First Presbyterian Church of Columbus. Ind., where he expects 


to begin work on July ist. He is "most absolutely single," not even 

M. H. Gardner. 
Gardner always was popular, but never more so than on the athletic 
field. His dignified bearing, his persuasive manner, were only too win- 
some. But leaving "flies" alone we will find him at the same place, 
Martinbvirgh (and listen— "Lock Box 31"), N. Y., where he is Stated 
Supply over the Martinsburgh church, and where he has recently organ- 
ized the Glendale church with fifteen members. He was ordained by the 
Presbytery of Albany, Dec. 8, 1891. He has received, he says, "no effect- 
ual calls," and declares he is in "no imminent danger of a marital 
catastrophe." He finds favilt with the census of your Secretar}-, because 
it does not afford the recording of such worthy deeds of his as "killing a 
black bear," &c. He scores Paton for writing "review articles filled with 
daghesh- fortes and like abominations." Altogether, Gardner, your letter 
is refreshing and shows that you are as tart as ever. 

W. F. Gibbons. 

Gibbons describes his work as "plain, old-fashioned, square-toed 
preaching." We hope the last adjective does not describe the control 
that iVIiss Margaret Monaghan, of Westchester, Pa., assumed over him as 
his wife on May 22, 1890. Well, bring up Rebekah Monaghan Gibbons,, 
age six months, in the same way, and some of '90's sons will be along 
after a while. He is located at Forty Fort, Luzerne county. Pa., amongst 
the miners, and is Pastor of the Stella church. He writes encouragingly 
of his work thvis : 

"For the last month there has hardly a meeting gone by when there 
was not some one who stayed to inquire of me privately the way of eternal 
life. Tliese have been young men and heads of families." We all rejoice 
in such encouraging tokens of the Lord's blessing on our classmates. 

James Heaney. 
"Found at last" is the heading here, for only yesterday did we hear 
from him. He is at State College, Centre county, Pa. He will be installed 
there to-morrow. He went first to Danville, N. J., during which time 
(July 17, 1S91), he was married to Miss Agnes INIoore Huey, Carn CuUagh, 
Antrim county, Ireland. He returned and labored near Philadelphia, and 
about three months ago accepted a call to the above place. 

Charles Sumner Hedges. 

Hedges is, as far as age goes, the Benjamin of the class, being born 

March 6, 1867. He is the only representative in our class of the dusky 

sons of the South, and is honored by us as a faithful, earnest, reserved 

Christian student. He is now located at Augusta, Ga., as Stated Supply 


of the Christ Presbyterian Church. He is also engaged in the educational 
work of his church in that city, teaching several hours every morning, 
except Saturday. He conducted revival services last December and Jan- 
uary with blessed results. He is neither married nor engaged. He has 
resigned his present charge, to take effect June ist, so as to devote himself 
more exclusively to the educational work, which is quite prominent in 
that city. 

William Jessup. 
Jessup reached Syria on Nov. 29, 1890, and is stationed at Zalileh, at 
the American Mission, with a fellow-Princetonian. He has mastered 
enough of the Arabic language to converse, to hold family prayers, and 
make prayer meeting, talks in it. He hopes soon to begin regular preach- 
ing in pure Arabic. He was married Oct. 15, 1890, to Miss Faith Jadwin, of 
Brooklyn, and rejoices in little Theodosia Davenport Jessup, of onemonth's 
activity. They live in a mud house in a city of 15,000 people, and chal- 
lenge the world for a happier life. Their greatest trouble is with the 
Jesuits, and they are engaged in a struggle with the Government to keep 
their schools. 

Andrew F. Johnson. 
Johnson spent only one year (Senior) with us. He is now at Kincar- 
dine, New Brun.swick, Can. He was installed Ma}', 1S90, over the 
Melville church. It is a mission station in a Scotch colony. There are 
four preaching stations, with four Sunday Schools, four prayer meetings 
and two Pastor's Bible Classes. Thirteen additions. Nearly all the 
people attend church on the Sabbath. He is living with his mother, and 
as soon as he can provide a home for her, will marry (as engaged) and 
apply for work on the foreign field, perhaps in West Africa. 


You will find our postman at 738 Eleventh street, Milwaukee. His 
church is the First German Presbyterian, over which he is Stated Supply. 
He had the pleasure of beginning the German Presbyterian work in that 
city, and organized his church on May 3d, 1S91, with twenty-eight mem- 
bers. Membership now is fifty. He began his Sunday School with only 
six children, now over 100. He was married to Miss Mary Stark on May 
27, 1890, and Erna Irene came near being a "Columbia," being born 
Feb. 23. 

J. C. Levingood. 
No word has been received from Levingood, although several efforts 
were made to reach him. Hg has been stationed, since graduation, at 
Lower Merion, Pa., but has now resigned and has gone to the Continent, 
presumably for study. 


J. E. Lynn. 

Lynn follows Baskerville closely in age. Is settled at Pottsville, Pa., 
over the Second Church, where he was installed Oct. 7, 1890. His mem- 
bership has increased by thirty-two. Audiences doubled. He has held 
two series of revival services, but that plan does not seem to work with 
his class of people. Lynn was married before entering Seminary and has 
one child, Rachel Ida Bowman. He has had several invitations to preach 
in vacant churches but has declined. 

John McMillan. 

McMillan was another Senior entrant, coming also from the Emerald 
Isle. He seemed bent on seeing the world, for, after graduation, he 
pUvShed further Westward until stopped by the Pacific. He settled at 
Slaughter, Wash., being installed there Nov. 6, 1890. He also h^ld a 
mi.ssion station at Green River. His Sunday School rapidly grew from 
lifteen to over 100. He is living with his brother-in-law, and has little 
prospects of marriage, as "no love for the Western girl." 

John B. McCuish, Ph.D. 

McCuish is best known as the only fellow who never missed a recita- 
tion in the three years. Good for you, Mac. We honor such faithfulness. 
After graduation he preached during the summer in Ottawa Pre.sbytery, 
Canada. He declined the calls there, and in the fall entered the Univer- 
sity of the City of New York, with McGinniss, to study for the Ph.D. 
degree. This was conferred on them on June 9, 1S92. He was. ordained 
May 2, 1892, and since Jan. ist has been in charge of the Lee Avenue 
Presbyterian Church, St. Louis, Mo., a branch of Dr. Niccoll's. It is 
growing rapidly. He is unmarried and resides at 3746 Penrose street. 

C. E. McGinnis, Ph.D. 

Another Doctor. McGinnis had a call early in his Senior year, which 
he accepted, to the Olivet Presbyterian Church of Lansingburgh, N. Y., 
over which he was installed as Pastor in May, 1890. He pursued, the fol- 
lowing year, studies in the University of N. Y., for the degree of Ph. D. 
He is engaged and a secret I must tell. McGinnis is not with us to-day, 
for his mind and heart are on another very important event that is to 
come off to-morrow. Boys, 

P. S. — The following telegrams were exchanged on the day of the 
reunion. "To C. E. McGinnis, congratulations from the bachelors at 
Princeton. We mourn our loss." — Whitaker, Oates, Erskine, Everitt. 
Back came the reply, "Sympathy and greetings from the wise and other- 
wise." — McGinnis, Miller and Williams. 


James T. McLean. 
"Pastor Presbyterian Church, Little Britain, Lancaster count}-, Pa." 
is the printed heading of McLean's letter. He was installed there on June 
i8, 1S90. His church numbers 300 members and he has received 32 into 
membership. He has driven a lively trade in weddings, viz ; 14, and a 
brisk one in funerals, viz; 39. He was married Dec. 3, 1890, to a western 

M. J. McLeod. 
Ls a Canadian by birth but well Americanized. "He loves us and we 
love him." In his Senior 3'ear, he declined a call to a church in Newark, 
N. J. He accepted one to Toughkennamon, Chester county. Pa., and at 
its three preaching stations did good work. Was installed Oct. 14, 1890. 
He recruited for a month in January at Lakewood, N. J., and resigned his 
charge the same spring, because the climate did not agree with him. He 
is now stationed at Stated Supply at Albany, Mo., about seventy-five 
miles north of Kansas Cit}'. He began his work there (so Mason says) 
with a poem on the "Mid-Continent." 

RoBEKT W. Mason. 
"Hello, did you want to .see me?" comes from De vSoto, Mo. Of 
course it is Bob Mason, just the same as when he came down the aisles of 
Stuart Hall. Mason introduces himself with the gilt-edged card of the 
De Soto Presbyterian Church, Rev. R. W. Mason, Pastor, over which he 
was installed Jan. 19, 1891. (We hear Bob is a gilt-edged preacher of St. 
Louis Presbytery.) He intended to locate at Llannibal but was changed 
to De Soto. He complains of "too many churches," although he has the 
leading Protestant Church. To the marital question he pleads "not pre- 
pared." Two openings were offered him last summer. We last heard of 
Mason delivering a temperance lecture, beginning with Adam. As he 
saj'S, "All I want is a start, and let me go far enough back." Well, 
success to your momentum, Bob. 

E. D. Miller. 
The best thing about Miller is, he is honest. He will return a book — 
or, at least, he says he will — loaned back in college days. Ned belongs to 
the fraternity of "graceful nonchalential frivolity," to his own expres- 
sion. He is .stationed at Bethayres, with P. O. address at Huntingdon 
Valley, Pa., over which church he was installed Pastor, April 28, 1S91. 
After graduation he preached four months in Westchester, Pa., then six 
months as a P. (i. at Princeton, beginning work at his present field May 
ist, 1891. He is boarding and single. 

Hugh Miller. 
A Canadian, from Ontario, entered our class in the middle year. 
After graduation he spent four months in Pleasant Plains, N. Y. He 


then took a P. G. in Princeton, during the fall of 1890. From Oct. 2. 1891, 
to Feb. 21, 1892, he took charge of a mission at Cramer Hill, N. J., under 
the Second Presbyterian Church of Camden. He is now with his brother 
in Des Moines, Iowa, (1325 12th St.,) without a charge, but likely to 
enter mission work. 

John W. Moore. 
Moore is another Japanese by adoption, being settled at "Kochi, Ja])an, 
No. 37, Masugata." He arrived there on Oct. 24, 1890, and has been teach- 
ing four hours a day and studying. Does not preach much as yet. 
Married June 5, 1890, to Miss Ellie Reid. The next spring found John 
Watson Moore, 2nd, in the home. He is about 400 miles from Doughty. 
He is after Thompson and a typewriter. He claims the loveliest location 
in all Japan, with the people eager to hear, and if he and brother Mcllvaine 
could only have the right kind of native helpers, that section would be 
christianized in five years. They have a province of half a million with 
two pastors and two evangelists. 

Wm. Mukchie. 
He is located at Birnscarth, Manitoba, Canada. Ordained May 29, 
1890, and labored in St. John^s Presbytery until November, 1890. Took a 
P. G. at Edinburgh, and became quite famous over an address on "Canada" 
delivered in the land of Burns. Began work in Birnscarth, Minnedosa 
Presbytery, on July 7, 1891. He is single. 

Wm. F. S. Nelson. 
Nelson spent one year at Sturges, S. D., as Pastor-elect. While there 
twenty-seven united on profession. He also had charge of the Pleasant 
Valley, Church, where twelve were added on profession. Two out- 
stations .were also occupied by him. He left there November, 1891, on 
account of ill-health. He was installed Pastor over the Presbyterian 
Church at Langhorne, Bucks county. Pa., on April 20, 1892. He had a 
call to the Presbyterian Church of the famous Hot Springs, of Dakota, 
but declined. Nel.son "stole the march" on the boys by being married 
April 10, 1890, to Miss Mary A. Henry, of Philadelphia ; he claims the 
oldest "heir" of the class, Wm. Franklin Nelson, born Jan. 6, 1891. 

LUTHEK A. Oates. 
Our most extended apology for a man, was born for a southern 
Colonel — only he came too late for the war. Since this opportunity was 
missed, he made good of his height as a manager for our ball team 
and a target for Pach's best camera.' Oates is here to-day as sure "as the 
Pennsylvania railroad goes." He supplied the Second Presbyterian 
Church of Charleston, S. C, during the summer of 1890. Then, a P. G. 
at Princeton. From June, 1891, to vSeptcmber, 1891, he supplied the 
Boundary Avenue Church, of Baltimore, Maryland. In December, he 


accepted a call to Delaware City, Del., where he was but recently installed. 
He is living in the manse with his sister and "not engaged that I know 
of." His present field affords hini ample time for study, which is agree- 
able to his taste. 

Albert G. Parker. 
He may be addressed at Pylesville, Harford county, Md., two miles 
from which is the newly-built Highland Presl)yterian Church, over which 
he was installed Pastor on May 27, 1890. In the two years Pastorate, the 
membership has been increased Ijy fifty-three additions. Parker was not 
long in becoming a Benedict, being married on May 21, 1890, to Miss 
Jessie Bewley, of Washington, D. C. On April 4, 1891, John Bewley 
Parker entered upon his j-ears of preparation for Old Nassau, and long 
may he live to grace the Parker home. 

A. McD. Patterson. 
Patterson came near being "lost, strayed, or stolen." But he was 
finally found, complacently smiling at "Lock Box 94, Mechanicsville, 
Saratoga county, N. Y.," only one mile from Carson. He was installed 
Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of that place on June 3, 1891. 
For six months after graduation, he preached in the First Presbyterian 
Church of Hamden, N. Y. In October, he entered "The National vSchool 
of Elocution and Oratory," Philadelphia, Pa., taking his B. O. degree in 
June, 1891. He has had good success in his present charge and is much 
encouraged. He expects to be married in July. 

Lewis B. Baton. 
Our only information from Paton is through his mother. He was 
ordained in the First Presbjterian Church of East Orange, N. J., on April 
20, 1890. He then pursued his two years' course of .study, under the 
Hebrew Fellowship of the Seminary, at Berlin, Germany. He has lately 
accepted a call to the chair of "Old Testament Exegesis and Criticism" 
in Hartford Theological Seminary, formerly occupied by Professor 
Bissell. He is unmarried ; will return to this country in August and 
assume his new duties in September. 

Stanley K. Phr.aner. 
Is at Chieng Mai, in the Laos Country of Siam. He is in charge of 
a church with a native helper, and is beginning to use the language some- 
what. He was married on June 9, 1890, to Miss Elizabeth Pennell, of 
Omaha, who died on their arrival at their field of labor on Feb. 12, 1891. 
Stanley was himself much broken down in health, but has recovered and 
is prosecuting his work with zeal and interest. The sad news of his 
. affliction deeply stirred our hearts, and endeared us more than ever to our 
homes on the foreign field. Stanley was well-nigh ubiquitous on the 
campus, and his heroic perseverance abroad makes him carry well the 
worthy name he bears. 


Samuel Polk. 
Was the only man of his clavSS who faced the crowned heads of Europe. 
Sam is the second youngest lad in his class, but oh, my ! We all rejoiced 
in his trip abroad — not particularly to get rid of him, but for his own 
good — but when he came back and told us — well, we almost wished he 
had stayed at home. He went, after graduation, to Airville, York county, 
Pa., where on June 4th, 1890, he was installed over the Chanceford Pres- 
byterian Church. As to matrimony, "lo, I have looked to the sea these 
seven times. The seventh time, behold ! there ariseth a cloud out of the 
.sea, like a man's hand." We trust ere this the cloud has become "abun- 
dance of rain." 

Robert J. Rankin. 
Lives "next door" to Polk. Fortunately it is so, or it would be hard 
to find him. His railroad station is McAll's Ferry, his P. O. address is 
Sunnyburn, and his church is the Pine Grove Church. If that is not 
nearly "all the earth," it ventures well nigh to it. He is the first Pastor 
of his church, and has had perhaps greater spiritual results than have 
followed any of the rest of us. Without the assistance of any Evangelist, 
he has been privileged to gather into his fold 102 precious .souls. The 
Lord be praised for the glory of his grace, and, brother, we rejoice most 
heartily with you. Because of his success, he has recently been elected 
ISIoderator of his Presbyter}-. He received the past year two very pressing 
calls to larger fields, but declined both. He was married May 15, 1890, to 
Miss Lizzie S. Peacock, of Berlin, N. J., and in April, 1891, Robert Leon 
brought joy to their hearts, while, to-day, we hear more music in that 
Sunnyburn home — this, a daughter. 

A. W. Remington. 
Settled at Canaan Four Corners, N. Y., from which Pa.storate he has 
but recently resigned. Was married on Jul}' 2, 1890, to Miss INIary Louise 
Kimball, of Milford, N. H. 

Frank Hyatt Smith. 
Whether or not Smith belongs to the Briggs' categorical, his 
answers are along that line. We have noticed his concise style in his 
"Golden Rule" articles, and we jjresume "Professor" Craig Adams would 
class him as "staccato." He accepted a highly flattering call to the North 
Avenue Congregational Church of Cambridge, where he was installed 
Feb. 8, 1891. Under the shadows of Harvard, he has been launching 
shafts of oratory at Princeton theology, &c. He has received four calls, 
and is engaged. 

William H. P. Smith. 
Is located at vStewartstown, York county. Pa., as Pastor of that 
church, installed June 11, 1890. Twenty-five additions. A new manse 
built, costing $2,700, and yet Smith is single. 


John H. Thompson. 
Thompy has improved more than any one else of our class, especiall}' 
in the line of spelling. Probably, this is due to a helpmeet, whom he 
took to himself on Sept. 4, 1890. He could not afford to "waist" life, and 
so entered into a partnership with Miss Sarah Cornelia Lansing for a 
"hunnymoon" on equal shares. They succeeded very well, spending the 
winter at home. He came to Princeton for a P. G. course but did not 
tarry long. In the spring he received calls to Hopewell. Pa., and Good- 
will, N. Y., over the latter of which he was installed Oct. 15, 1892. His 
address is Montgomery, Orange countjs N. Y. Hello, all ye marriageable 
men of '90, Thompy wants to see you. Take Erie Railroad from New 

Jacob N. Trompen. 
Entered in Middle year. He spent five months at Mansey, N. Y., 
then a P. G. at Princeton. In April, 1891, he began work at Ramsej's, 
N. J., (Passaic connty,) where he was in.stalled Aug. 19, 1891. His mem- 
bership has increased from thirty to 100. Trompen has been married for 
many years and has a family of two children, Nicholas and Harry. 

D. Ruby Warne. 
Warne still swings the racquet and preaches meanwhile at Kingston, 
N. J. He still enjoys his "love sets," for he married on June 12, 1890, Margaret Jones, and Elsie, of six months' activity, "fathers the 
rattle and rattles the father." He was installed June 7, 1890. He enjoyed 
a stirring revival season in his church in the winter of 1890, and has a 
most charming country home. 

Charles H. Whitakek. 
Our genial President, as benign?int as ever, graces the churches of 
West Grove and Avondale, Pa., being installed in June, 1890. Twenty 
additions b}- Profession. Avondale church has been renovated at a cost 
of $1,500. He has been keeping house with his mother, but now is 
boarding. The Quaker community is rather slow for him, he sa3^s. 

James W. Williams. 
Went to Ashland, Pa., where he was Pastor for eight months, being

Church, of Dunmore, Lackawana county, Pa., whither he went May i, 
1891. He lives in a most beautiful manse but is not married. 

S. B. Wylie. 
Was with us only during the last year. After graduation he spent 
five months on his native island (Ireland) and then took a P. G. at Prince- 
ton, during which he supplied the Deer Creek, Md., church. He is now 


in charge of the Kings Street Chapel, a mission of the Fifth Avenue 
Church of New York City, in which latter pulpit he has also revelled. He 
was ordained April 22, 1892, at Princeton. He is still single but hopeful

Teachers, 3 

Foreign Missionaries, 5

Letters were also received from Voorhies (Second Presbyterian, Tren- 
ton, N. J.,) Hudnut (First Presbyterian, Port Jervis, N. Y.,) and Coffin 
(Presbyterian College, San Fernando, Trinidad, British West Indies,) 
who, though not of us, have a large share of our affection and prayers. 

Your Secretary has not, he trusts, been over frivolous in his record, 
but knowing that a little lightheartedness is sometimes good, even in our 
own profession, he has so indulged. We have nought but gratitude to 
express for the many mercies received, and only wait our Father's call to 
wider fields, or even to the higher field in His own home.

CLASS OF 1890. 



Trenton, N. J., September 26th, 1900. 
Dear Classmates : 

The Decennial Reunion has passed and around it linger many pleasant 

memories. On Monday evening, May 7th, 1900, at the residence of Mrs. Leigh. 

there gathered around the table the following members of the class circle, 

Adams, Mr. and Mrs. 'Everitt, Mr. and Mrs. Gibbons, H. Miller, Dates, Mr. 

and Mrs. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. Polk, Remington, Thompson, Mr. and Mrs- 

Trompen, Warne, Whitaker and Williams. Kenneth Everitt and Donald Parker 

were also present. After a delightful repast, the various members of the class 

responded to toasts, of both a humorous and serious nature. The Secretary was 

instructed to convey to Mrs. Wm. Henry Green the sympathy of the class in 

the death of her husband, our beloved Dr. Green. 

The next class banquet will be in 1905. 

The class history was ordered published and sent to the class. It has been 
unduly delayed, because of incomplete reports, and even now, members will 
doubtless discovef errors in dates. If so, kindly notify the Secretary, that 
corrections may be made for future use. Members desiring printed reports of 
'92 and '95 can have them at mere expense of postage. They are of same size, 
so that they can easily be bound together. We hope, this will be done. The 
Treasurer would report that he has on hand fiy.So, which may cover the cost of 
this issue, the price of which is 30 cents each. Those, who have not so paid, 
will kindly do so upon receipt of the history. 

Now, fellows, get down the old class photo, and let us go over together the 
history and work of the boys of '90, praying ever for still greater blessings upon 
their labors.

CLASS OF 1890 





The twentieth re-union of the class of 1891) was held at tlie Princeton Inn 
on Tuesday evening. May 10, 1910. with the followinj>- memhers and wives pres- 
ent: Mr. and Mrs. Bannerman, Mr. and .Mrs. Erskine. Everitt, Levin^jood, 
McMillan. H. Millei-. Parker, [and little daughter Beulah] Paton, .Mr. and .Mrs. 
Thomp.son, Mr. and .Mrs. Warne. Mr. and Mrs. VVhitaker, .Mr. and Mrs. Wil- 
liams. Wylie 

After a social hour in the parlors, a banquet was served, with our President- 
Whitaker as toast-master. As our guests, we had Profe.ssor and Mrs. Davis, 
Profe.s.sor and Mrs. Erdman. Rev. Dr. Wilson Pliraner, and Wilson Phraner. the 
son of our deceased classmate. Stanley Phraner. 

Interesting after-dinner talks were given by all present. The secretary read 
his report and it was ordered printed, together with such material as he might 
gather later. 

At a late hour the Class separated, looking forward, with deeper pleasure, 
to another, and. we trust, larger gathering in 1915. our twenty-lift h anniver- 

F. B. h:\-Kia'J"r. Soci-etai'N. 


The annal> of a Class are of interest, only as they deal with living- princi- 
ples and living- personalities. The growth of an idea transcends the growth of 
a man. Only as we incarnate viial truths, do we impress the world. To dis- 
cover, to discriminate, and to divulge those elements of character that have 
made for failure or success, in the lives of fifty men, thro' two decades, would 
he no mean achievement. Writing history would then be more than a pastime. 
It would be a privilege, worthy of the best, and a task, worthy of the mightiest. 
To watch the rise of some, swift-winged, because Heaven-born and Heaven- 
sent: to see others wend their even course, with scarce a hillock's rise: and to 
mark the fall of others, as if i)iei-ced by some sudden shaft, this is startling in 
its sur])rises, and often mystifying in its It is not the part of your his- 
torian to trace individual destiny. Each must follow his own rule of interpre- 
tation. The standards of measurement are, after all, of our own making. We 
judge, with an individuality as nuirked as that by which we preach. Let that 
judgment ])e charitable. For 

"We live in deeds, not years, in thoughts, not breaths: 

In feelings, not in ligures on a dial. 
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives, 

Wlio thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best." 

None of our weaknesses would we hide. Our strength is not in our 
achievements, hut in our fidelity. Our virtue is "to love the true for itself alone." 
Humble ministering, in .lesus" name, is our only claim to be known. We pause 
at the end of these two decades. The impress of our ministry is now at its 
height. It is flood-tide with us. The market is now above par. Soon, the 
ebb sets in, the goods are marked-down. But let not the "dead-line." and the 
ecclesiastical bargain counter affright us. We are still men, men with iron in 
our blood and steel in our thougiit. Ring true in all we do. The only failure 
is to fail to be true to the be>i ihat is in us. Thoroughness is a spiritual gift.

For we are widening- in our circle, as the next generation comes to tlie front. 
It is no jj'reat task to keep in touch with the actual men of the class.— jioor 
correspondents tho' some of them are: their wives are belter- but our hope is, 
to maintain in some decree the ties as well of the children of our families. 
For this work, we ask your sympatliy and prompt co-operation, when souj^ht. 
Let our children kn:)w, that there is a Princeton bond, that cannot be severed 
and it will ^o far toward strenjjtheniny their faith in, and thouj^ht of. the

Foremost iiiiiony oui- hlessinjis are t!)()se of liealtli and pliysieal ability toilo 
our work.

The best assets in life are a sound cliaracler a^d a sound body. And, of all 
men. the preacher should have them. Physically s})eakino-, sermons should 
not, be boi'n of sijrhs. nor prayers of ])ains. The smart and the ache make poor 
initiative and still ])oorer momentum, and both are needed in the ministry. 

As a i-ule, our Class has enjoyed yood health. Some, as Whitaker. have 
not missed a day thro' illness, \vliile. to others, has come the usual bi-eakdown 
throufi;h overtaxed nerve and strenyh Mcfjeod had a six months siejj-e of in- 
somnia. Henry Campbell suffered in 11)04 a similar period from typhoid fevei-. 
Lynn suffered a sei-ious break-down in UK)7 and went to Canada for recupera' 
tion, where he is still located, reyaininji- health Fenwick Fraser was out a 
few months, with the yripoe, while Nelson lost time in 1891, and Cumrainsfs in 
1899. Carson is a sufferer from chronic throat trouble, and his people have the 
gTace each year of sending him to the Bermudas or elsewhere. Gibbons is at 
present out of active work, ill-health compellinjr his resignation last year: but 
a long- trip to Palestine, and liyht work for a few years, promise ultimate i-e- 
covery. A nervous break down forced me to relinquish in 19(K{ a most promis- 
ing- work in N. Y. City, in connection with the F'ifth Ave. Church, but these 
years "in the open"' liave greatly benefitted me. Probably we would all fare 
better, if we followed the Medo-Persian I'ule of Reming-ton to relax every ten 
years and take a prolong-ed rest — at least a year, which lest he is now taking' 
in his country home in New Hampshire. 

Some of our men are having' anxious times >vitii tlie loved oni's, who have 
stood so faithfully by them. Our prayers and sympathies go out now to broth- 
ers Henry Campbell, Carson, and Leving'ood, watching' by the side of invali<l 
wives. Mrs. Campbell has been very ill for ten weeks with tubercular t,i-oul)le- 
May the watching- moments be bi-ig'htened witli the faitii of the i)oet. as lie 

'•Behind the dim unknown. 
Staiidclh God within the shadow. 
Kee|)ing watch above liis own.'" 


Oh! beo" ])ardonI but how else shall we describe the hopeless celibacy of a 
few I Our terminoloi^y is limited, our temper merciless. 

To call the roll is enoujih: 

H. J. Cdiaphell, (;,(nl'ur, ^f<^^^lhn,, E. 1). MUln\ 11. Miller. 

These never sig'hed for love, nor sanjf from love's returns. With quiver 
empty and bow unstrung', hapless hunters they, in the quest of this world's 
g-Qodl No fruitful vine l>y the side of their house, no olive plants around their 
tablel Kef/uie-seat in 

Murchie died unmarried. The rest of the class have long- been in the 
'•luxury of living." altho' a full decade passed by before .Mason, Oates, Whita- 
ker and Williams found the ones chosen for them. 

Of the class. Bi-yant. Carrington. Paterson and Phraner have been twice 
married. Paton i-emains a widow ei-. 



Tliei-L' is liltlp of tlie liei'init in tiiis Class. Witli Tennvsun. it says, 

■■| cannot rest from travel: I will drink 
Lili- to tlu' lees." 

Our feet have pressed tlie soil of every continent. And when that .Martian 
air-line is established, methinks some Bohemian in our ranks will be first 
aboard. Perhaps Bannerman OL'cupies first place as a ])erei>-rinator: Africa. 
France, Italy, Switzerland, Alaska. Canada and United States are a few i)oints 
in his itinerary. And to think that he has finally sto])ped near Trenton, and 
midway between the county workhouse and the State A.sylumI Nelson has 
spent at least a month, often two months, every yearsince tjraduation in travel. 
Has been three times to Europe, and in all its countries: in all but about five 
states in this country and all through Canada. Carrinyton has touched three 
continents in Brazil, the British Isles and his own "dear, native land." Rera- 
ing-ton has braved the rugged peaks of Sinai, as well as covered I"^.gyi)t. Pales- 
tine, Turkey, Greece and Italy. R. J. Campbell, the "lone traveller,'' has 
been in Great Bintain, C'anada, Alaska and all over these states. His airship is 
liable to alight anywhere. VVarne. in 189", toured the United States and in 19()<l. 
Europe. Paton was- a year in Jerusalem, as Director of the American School 
of Oriental Study and Research and therewith traveled extensively in the Holy 
Land and Egyjjt. Gibbons has just enjoyed a pleasant trip to Eurojie and the 
Holy Land, thro' the kindness of his people. Because they came this year a month 
apart, ho had two Easier Sundays, one in St. I'eter's, Rome, where he saw the 
Miracle of the Holy Fire. Was in Rome, when "Teddy" turned down the 
Pope. Was in Dr Ti])))le's study, wlien he dictated his historic cablegi-am to 
Bisho") Hartzell. Was in Egypt when the murderer of Boutrous Pasha was on 
trial and saw '"Young Egypt" in its wildest mood Saw the ^loslem "Feast of 
Moses," a iiarade from Jerusalem to Jericho and i-eturn, occurring only once in 
fourteen years. Saw (iOO S. S. children parade the very streets of Stamboul in 
Constantinople, singing "Onward, Christian Soldiers." where less than twenty 
years ago, 17,000 Armenians were massacred Even the Turkish police saluted 
the Christian fiags. Was also at Oberammergau. Frank Eraser has traver- 
sed the trackless plains of the west, back and forth, now in Minnesota and now 
in California, with Canada as a side line. Whitaker. in I!*!)"), visited Kngland 
and France. Doughty and .Moore, of coui-se, have been in Jai)an and the 
Orient, and Jessup all over Syria, and the lands between. 

The rest of us have been content with ouy own little land, and have watched 
afar and dreamed. But do not judge us nari'ow, if as yet our horizon covers 
only familial- lines.

For actual research, Paloii imdoubteiUy leads, as he alsodoes in literary output. 
His special field is Oriental Archaeology and History, holding, as he does, the pru- 
tWsorship in Old Testament Kxegesis and Criticism, anil in.structor in Assyrian, in 
Hartford Seminary, Conn. The following is a list of his puljlished book.s. The 
Early Hi.story of Syria and Pale.-tine, Scribners, 190_': Jerusalem in Bible Times, 
T^niv. of Chicago Press, 190S: the Commentary on Ksther in the Internatioiml 
Critical Commentary, Scribners, U)OS; Recent Chri.^tian Progress, Macmillan, 1909. 
He has contributed also numerous articles to Dictionaries, Encyclopoedias and the 
press. As a celel)rity, Frank Hyatt Smith can kei'}) pace with Paton, his lectures 
on Engli.^h Literature Iteing po[)ular ai all Chautaurpias. and his tribute to Shak- 
speare, being honoreil with a place in the archives of the poet at Stratford. Ban- 
nennan and .Johnson have been contributing to philology, the former in helping to 
reduce the Fang language of AVe.<t Africa to writing and the latter has studied the 
Sioux language and published "Forms for special oca-ions for Indian Pasiors."

Till' side-lines of the Class: Modesty has kept most of the boys silent on 
this score. Pi-obably. they feared beinff classed with the poodle-dog- crowd, 
lint s nne are frank enough to answer, and there is not a o-enealogist amono- 
them!! Bryant says, he never regretted selling- Hodg-e's Systematic Theology 
lo buy a tennis racquet; only now. [since he is so far from Warne] he has laid 
aside the racquet for golf, which he conscientiously plays every Saturday after- 
noon, and, next to "dynamiting orthodoxy," is his chief dissipation. 

Williams plies a motor-boat and auto, while Wylie is satisfied with the 
foi-mer. McCuish dabbles in politics, and was urg-ed four years ago lo be tlie 
Mayoralty candidate in Leadville, on the Republican ticket. Thompson also 
takes a hand, now and then, in political matters, and has taug-ht the •'ring'" of 
his county a few pointers on how to carry an election. 

Your secretary believes in the open air, and has somewhat solved the va- 
cation problem for a family of children, and moderate means, by possessing- a 
comfortable camp outfit, and betaking- himself each season to some water 
resort, where we "'take to water, like ducks," the whole set of us. 

Anderson and Whitaker are more commercial in their tastes, and each has 
put on the market, patented products, that pay. Anderson has a good thing- in 
his return type-writer carriage, made and sold to the Underwood people. It 
has now reached the manufactui-ing stage, and numbers are in use all over the 

Whitaker's foot-warmer for carriag-es has brought good rctui-ns. he. having 
sold his Canadian rights, but holdin^j- the rest. 

Frank Fraser is plucking fruit and health by working between times, a 
fi-uit ranch, a mile from his home, in one of the greatest fruit belts of the 
country, on tlie Columbia river, Washington.

A Communication. 

Wv insert here, properly, we think, the response of Prof. Erdman, yiven 
li. accordance with the request of the Class at the banquet, that he should fur- 
nish a brief outline of th6 practical work, now done at the Seminary. In view 
of a somewhat critical attitude along' this line, in our Class and all over the

because it fi-ives a resume of some important facts, not otherwise noted. 
'•■rh(> Class of 1890 comes to its twentieth anniversary with all the feeling's of a 
man, just aboui to attain his majority. We feel we are now coming- into that 
peiiod of our ministry when our mental and spiritual possibilities are at their 
best and when our \ears entitle us to be heard. This Class has run the yamut 
nearly of all callings. We have men in ^letropolitan pulpits, and men in 
Metropolitan business. We can wriie sermons, we can write fiction. We have 
spell-binders, on the political and lecture platform as well as on the sacred. 

We are nothing, if not migratory. We have but two men in the lionie 
field who have been in the same charge the whole of their twenty years, both 
country pastors, and with no children to educate. But thirteen in all liave 
lived out a decade in one charg-e. The average length of pastorate for the 
class is less than seven years. Our "'wandering .Jew" has the recoi'd of ten 
pastorates in twenty years. This is of interest, not merely in reflecting the 
restlessness of the age, but in suggesting another thing, that success is being 
considered in terms of quantity rather than quality. The short pastorate for 
quantity, but the long one for quality And is not the church losing, in the 
shifting of the emphasis from quality to quantity, from the substantial solidity 
of time taken, time tested thoroughness to the ephemeral flash of a one-night 
stand, howling tho' its success may be. A work well-done is a life twice-lived, 
and the man who lias g'i'it to hold on is the man. who will have gi-ace to winout- 

Our somewhat vagrant tendencies have resulted in a most startling fact, 
viz: that one out of every four of our class is out of the active pastorate, and 
that, in the very prime of life. Brethren, we hear much about the failure of 
young men to enter the ministry. Here is a more startling fact, that there is 
a tremendous loss at the other end. The old ship is leaking' fore and aft. ()ur 
men are not demitting the ministry, they are demitting the pastorate. It fills 
us with alarm. Where did the cog sli}). in the mental and moral processes of 
the man, or in the ecclesiastical iirocesses of tho church? It is an anemic con- 
dition, but who has the anenii:iV 

l''rom the replies of my classmates, I have a word to say, as to the ]>re])ara- 
tion this Seminary gives its students. There is a widespread belief inourclass 
and out of it, thiit our Seminaries are not adequately meeting the needs of the 
ministry to day. The awakening of the men in the pew is calling more than ever 
for the awakening of llie man in the pulpit. We must train men for the pro])- 
lems of the twentieth century rather than the solving of the ismsof the tenth. 
The minister of to day cannot att'ord to be a man of the cloister but must be a 
man of the crowd. Socialism has in it less to fear than scholasticism, if by 
Jiocialism. we uu';in. the full, fair facing of t he moral and social questions of 


Atrain the ])ractical has the call to-day. Where one man g-oes out of these 
walls, trembling as to what he believes, there are ten mentog-o out, trembling 
as to HOW to do thino-s. The spectre of defeat lies not in our exegesis, but 
in getting seventy per cent workout of a people that has been accustomed to 
give only tliirty. 

A tliird call to-day. is for the prophet in i)u]jlic life. Modern problems 
challenge the ])roiihetic office anew. Passivity and a pi-iestly cult are the 
diabolism of the present century. The voice of old. with prophetic accents 
alone can save the day. But let me close with a more cheering word. We 
are one in our loyalty to the Princetim type of theology. Only one man rebels 
and the Lord has taken good care of him, by keeping his mind and heart in the 
teaching profession We hail it as no small achievement, that we have weath- 
ered the gales of as caustic criticism of the Book as ever blew upon it. But at 
the mast-head, still flies the nkl. red banner of the Cross, in whose folds, let 
sinners rest and heroes die. Princeton theology is something more than tradi- 
tionalism. Certitude in fundamentals is not dogmatism: belief in the essentia' 
verities of an organic, livingfaith, with joints fitly framed together, is not con- 
servatism: assent to a compact formulae of federated and related truth, call 
it what you will, is not mediaeval. It is what the world wants, not to speak 
of its needs. 

We belie\-e still in the Princeton type, clean-cut, well defined and, above all, 
visualized in the life of the preacher. This type may or may not be sni gifiierin, but 
whatever it is. it is our confidence to day, that in this staunch, unflinching type 
of belief lies the hope of the church, and its buhvar-k, against which 
no powers of hell can prevail, nor flood of criticism overthrow. The Calvinism 
of the Cross rh Prmceton-taught. is facile pr^r^ceps the inherent power of the 
Christian ministry and. as such, shall ever be the glory, in the life and service, 
of the sons of "HO.

CLASS OF 1890 



Impensa monumenti supervacua est; memor'ta nostra durabit, si vita 

CLASS OF 1890 


In response to the call of the Secretary, the following members, and 
wives, of the Class of 1890 assembled for the Silver Anniversary Dinner 
of the Class at the Princeton Inn, on the evening of May 3, 1915, viz : H. M. 
Campbell, Mr. and Mrs. Everitt, Gibbons, Levingood, Mr. and Mrs. Polk, 
Thompson, Warne, Mr. and Mrs. Whitaker, and Williams. Messrs. Sidney 
Levingood, of the Senior Class in the University, and Robert Baskerville, 
cf the graduating class in the Seminary, both sons of the class, were also 
present. A telegram was received from McLeod, regretting his inability, 
thro' illness, to be present and represent the class at the Alumni Dinner. 
Thompson was thereupon selected to fill the vacancy. 

The Secretary read his report, which stated that all had been heard 
from or located, and he was instructed to issue, in printed form, the history 
of the class. He was also instructed to send the sympathy of the Class to 
Erskine, seriously ill, and to Gardner, in sorrow for the recent death of 
his sister, who made her home with him as his housekeeper. 

Arrangements were made for taking the photo of those present, for 
insertion in the history. (Mr. and Mrs. Bannerman, and Wylie also appear 
in the photo, being present the next day). 

The Secretary also presented his report as Treasurer, showing total re- 
ceipts of $90.17, including twenty-one subscriptions to the History, and a 
balance on hand of 71 cents for Expense account. (The Class contributed 
four dollars for the same at the dinner). 

With our President, Whitaker, presiding, interesting reminiscences were 
given until a late hour. The next re-union will be held in 1920. 

F. B. EVERITT, Secretary.

By this it will be seen that the longest present pastorate is that of 
Thompson, with 24 years, followed closely by Johnson and Wylie, each 23 
years. The others over ten years in their present charges are Moore and 
Warne, 17; Carson. 16; McMillan, 14; Jungeblut and Williams, 11; Cum- 
mings and Gardner, 10. Paton has been teaching at Hartford 15 years, and 
W. H. P. Smith has been farming the same length of time. Dunlap has 
been in business 13 years. All the rest of us are comparatively new at our 
present tasks. Erskine has the record of the longest continuous pastorate, 
having been, at his death, twenty-five years in his only charge. 

In geographical distribution, 29 are now in the East, five in the Middle 
West, three in the far West, three on the Pacific Coast, two in the South, 
two in Canada, and two on foreign field. 


It has ever been our custom to keep in touch with the families of our 
dc-ceased brothers. The loving interest of the Class of '90 shall ever follow 
the widow in her sorrows and in her joys, and the children in their rise and 
usefulness in life. For we hear the voices of fathers, speaking thro' the 
children, and their interests are our interests still. 

We are, therefore, glad to include in this history the following reports 
from these families : 

ALLEN. — Mrs. Minnie L. Allen still resides at Haddonfield, with her 
two sons, William, age 22, and Louis, age 21. 

BASKERVILLE.— Mrs. Emma R. Baskerville is still at 15 Vanderen- 
ter Ave., Princeton, N. J. She was left with five children, one daughter 
having died in 1907, and the oldest son Harold, being killed in a sortie for 
food, when besieged in Tabriz, in 1909, whither he had gone as a missionary 
teacher, intending to return to complete his studies in the Seminary. The 
remaining children are: Mrs. Julia Hensel (widow), teaching in Albert Lea 
College, in Minnesota; Charles, Class of 1909, Princeton Seminary, Vice 
President of Bellevue College, Neb.; Ernest, Class of 191 1, Macalester Col- 
lege, St. Paul, in business in Spokane, Wash.; Robert, Class of 1915, Prince- 
ton Seminary, just installed at Strasburg, Pa., and Arthur, in Senior Class, 
High School, Princeton. 

ERSKINE. — Mrs. Esther G. Erskine may not reside longer at Thomp- 
son Ridge, altho that was her home. Her present plans are unknown to the 

HEANEY.— Mrs. Agnes M. Heaney is at 918 S. 48th St., Philadelphia. 
Spencer, the son, is a mining engineer, located at Wilkesbarre, Pa. He is 
following in the father's footsteps, being deeply interested in religious work, 
at present, Asst. Supt. of his Sabbath School. 

HEDGES. — The address of Mrs. Hedges, now Mrs. S. A. Hedges 
Johnson, is 504 N Pine St., San Antonio, Texas. A dressmaker by trade, 
she, however is in poor health. Her son, Lyman Hedges, is finishing his 
course in Knoxville College, Tenn. He finished his trade of tile and iron 
works at Tuskegee last term, and is in good health. 

MASON.— Mrs. Belle F. Mason is at her old home in DeSoto, Mo., 
where Robert— twelve years old — is in the seventh grade in school, and often 
talks of the years to come when "he can tread the same paths h's father 
trod toward Princeton. He is a bright lad, full of health, measures four feet 

and seven inches in height, weighs about seventy-five pounds and is beloved 
by everybody." 

McCUISH. — Mrs. Anna H. McCuish will remain, in accordance with 
her husband's wishes, at least for a year in Newton, Kansas, his last 
charge, where the oldest child, Helen, twelve years of age, is finishing her 
grade work and will take part of High School work this year. John B. is 
nine years old, and Anna Margaret, age six, enters school for the first time 
this Fall. 

MURCHIE.— Died unmarried. 

OATES. — ^Mrs. Ethelinde D. Oates resides at Princess Anne, Md., and 
writes thus interestingly of her son, Robert Luther: "Bob is in the seventh 
grade, stands well with very little study, being no plodder. It comforts me 
to see how much of mind and character, he has inherited. He even has his 
father's skill with tools. I have built him a shop in our back yard, where he 
built a fine boat, holding four people, and many other less ambitious things. 
He whistles and saws away, until it seems that the dear father must have 
come back." Mrs. Oates herself is in better health, and we shall watch 
with interest this promising builder. Robert is now twelve years of age. 

PHR-\NER.— The widow died in 1903. The oldest son, Wilson, aged 
22, lives with his uncle at 385 Jefferson Ave., Brooklyn, and has a position 
with the U.S. Trust Co., New York City. Stanley, age 21, is now in Senior 
Class. Princeton, and expects to enter the Seminary in preparation for the 
missionary field, probably Siam. 

RANKIN. — Mrs. Elizabeth Rankin has been living at her old home in 
Berlin, N. J. for three years. Her son Robert graduated from Lafayette 
College in 1914, and is now teaching science in the Pingry School, Elizabeth. 
Ella, thru ill health, was compelled to leave college. An operation has failed 
to restore entirely her health and she is still at home. Helen is a Senior in 
the College Dept. of Beechwood, at Jenkintown, Pa. She has completed there 
the course in Domestic Arts, which she expects to teach next year. She, 
too, was in the hospital, undergoing an operation for appendicitis, but has 
entirely recovered. 

Classmates, the world is large, the struggle fierce. It is your privilege 
and mine to stand loyally by every son and daughter of the Class, and to 
take the father's place to these fatherless ones, in kindly word, prayerful 
solicitude, and wise counsel. Go out of your way, if necessary, to encourage 
and help. And may every mother know assuredly that, in the father's 
classmates, they have those 

"Who heart-whole, pure in faith. 
Once written friend. 
In life and death are true, 
Unto the end." 


PARKER must at last divide the honors with MOORE. For each have 
a school of their own in their nine children each. Parker's are rated, eight 
boys and one girl, while Moore's are six boys and three girls. John, we 
hope this is right. Distance has somewhat lent mystery to your family tree, 
and, the more we investigated, the more mixed we became. And several 
letters from your relatives in this country, read at the Class Dinner, only 
the more bewildered us, until the Class voted to take your word for it, and 
call it nine. 

Bannerman, Bull and Paterson can each claim five, while Gibbons has 
four. Bannerman's five are all boys, and Gibbons' four, all girls. Say, can't 
we bring these families together? Bull and Paterson also might match up, 
except that the sexes are the same in each, viz: one boy and four girls. 

"Pity 'tis, 'tis true," that Anderson (three died). Bryant, Carrington, 
Gibbons, Jessup (one died), Lynn, Paton, Warne have no boys to discipline, 
while Adams, Allen, Bannerman, Trompen and Voorhies have no girls to 

The childless homes are those of Henry Campbell, Erskine, F. W. Eraser, 
McGinniss (wholost, in 1895, their only child, Helen), McLean, Remington, 
F, H. Smith, W;. H. P. Smith, Thompson, Whitaker and Williams. 

However, of these McLean has adopted a son, and Remington has taken 
a boy to educate, sixteen years old, with three generations of missionaries 
behind him, being a great-grandson of Rev. Isaac Bird, one of the earliest 
missionaries to Syria. 

No new additions, since last report, save Katherine Bonde Moore, born 
January 29, 1911, and Bertha Loving Moore born May 27, 1913. One death 
has occurred, Margaret Agnes Cummings, in 1911, aged two years. This 
totals our family list as 59 boys and 50 girls. 

DOUGHTY has one blind daughter. 

WM. FRANKLIN NELSON, the "Class Baby" is larger than his father, 
and is studying bookkeeping and running a ranch in California. 

MISS LIDA LYNN is on the staff of the Conservatory of M,usic, at 
Berlin, Ontario, giving piano instruction. 

MAGA SKA JOHNSON, the boy with the Indian name, on Easter of 
this year, made his profession of faith in Christ, at the age of ten years. 

HELENA DOUGHTY graduated in 1913 at Vassar, as honor student, 
with several Commencement appointments and a fellowship in history. 

Received her Master's degree from University of Wisconsin in 1914. JOHN 
graduated as honor student at Perkiomen Seminary. 

As yet, TROMPEN is the only one boasting of a grandson, altho rumors 
are coming in of some of the "family," following the matrimonial calling 
very ardently. 

If no record appears here "of the honors of your children, it is due to 
lack of information. We trust that by the next report all reticence and false 
modesty of parents may be overcome, and we may have a full account of what 
our sons and daughters are doing. 


The Silver Anniversary of the Class reminds us that other similar 
anniversaries are on the wing — and some will soon alight. Congratulations 
are in order for the following silver wedding anniversaries this year : 

April 10, Rev. and Mrs. W. F. S. Nelson; May 21, Rev. and Mrs. A. 
G. Parker; May 22, Rev. and Mrs. W. F. Gibbons; May 27, Rev. and Mrs'. 
J. F. Jungeblut; June 4, Rev. and Mrs. G. T. Eddy; June 12, Rev. and 
Mrs. J. W. Doughty and Rev. and Mrs. D. R. Warne; July 2, Rev. and 
Mrs. A. W. Remington; August 14, Rev. and Mrs. Neal L. Anderson; 
August 18, Rev. and Mrs. W. S. Bannerman; September 9, Rev. and Mrs. 
C. C. Adams; December 3, Rev. and Mrs. J. T. McLean. 

These, with those of Allen, Carrington, Moore, Phraner and Rankin, 
seventeen in all, were the matrimonial ventures of the year of 1890. We are 
sorry that this history will reach the Class too late for extending any con- 
gratulations on the very occasion, but they all have our best wishes, our 
heartiest congratulations. 

"When I read tales of married woe. 

Among the stale newspaper jokes, 

I simply smile and think of you, 

Two very happy married folks." 

To the two widows, whose silver wedding thoughts this year caught up 

a tangle of broken, sombre threads, we express the hope : 

"We'll catch the broken threads again, 
And finish what we here began ; 
Heav'n will the mysteries explain. 
And then, ah ! then, we'll understand." 

Forget not, the "rarest hues of human life are rainbowed out of tears." 

For the anniversaries of others, see printed history of 1900. Lynn and 
Trompcn are so far ahead of us, we have lost all count, and R. J. Campbell, 
Gardner, McMillan, Ed. Miller and Hugh Miller are so far behind us— 
hopelessly behind — tearlessly behind — bachelors in malcdictione ct malodore 
— that we don't care. Bryant, Carrington, Jessup, Moore, Paterson, and 
Paton have each ventured twice on the matrimonial seas. Since last report, 
Jessup was married on November 14, 1913, to Miss Katharine Prime, of 
Yonkers, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Prime. And Paton was 
married on June 30, 1915, to Mrs. Loraine Seymour Calhoun, a widow, with 
one daughter, of an old friend of his, and who for four years has been 
his private secretary. 

Only Henry Campbell remains a widower. Phraner was also married 
twice, each wife dying. 

And other anniversaries there are! ."Dead line?" Oh, no! just golden 
anniversaries of ripened age. These cross the fifty-year-old line this year, 
in following order: McLeod, Wylie, Carrington, Anderson, F. W. Eraser, 
R. J. Campbell and McMillan. While the following have but one year of 
grace, when they, too, will cross in this order, Levingood, F. L. Eraser, 
Everitt, Moore, Johnson, Bryant and Polk. Then all will be "fifty years 
young," and over. Polk and Bryant bring up the rear in age, while Lynn 
and Frank Hyatt Smith are the "venerated fathers." The average age of 
the Class is now about fifty-three.

"Love to all the men in attendance. Still interested in all of them. — 
F. W. Eraser." 

"Do not allow too much worldliness to get into the church. Better a 
small membership and loyal than a most disloyal to God. — F. L. Eraser." 

"I realize more than ever the divineness of Scripture, and the Divinity 
it reveals. — Johnson." 

"Contend earnestly for the faith, once for all delivered to the saints. 
Hit harder than ever. Oh, the havoc wrought by the critics on the lop-sided 
faith of so many weak ones. — Moore." 

"Be more earnest. Time passes. Let us work. — Nelson." 

"Cling to fundamentals. Sunday is a winner because he cuts ofif the frills 
of doubt. Ministry needs a compact brotherhood. Masons far ahead here. 
Every man needs some side line. I lecture and write. Could have been a 
Christian Science lecturer, if willing to bury my common sense.— F. Hyatt 


"The old-fashioned gospel is good enough for me. Stop preaching 
about every new thing under the sun and preach the gospel. — W. H. P. 

"Schlafen sie wohl (we pass it on to Jungeblut). — Thompson." 

"A message of good cheer. Christ is King, and the Kingdom is coming. 

After this war is over, there will- be a better world, and greater opportunities 
for service than ever before. — ^Whitaker." 

"Greetings to the Class. — Dunlap, McGinniss, Doughty, Parker, Reming- 
ton, Trompen." 


At least, so the questionaire called for. About one-half expressed any- 
thing. Perhaps they are not weighing heavily on their mind — or too heavily 
to warrant any diagnosing. Analyzing the replies, we find several storm 
centres. E. G. — Billy Sunday and his work. Lynn cries out for a "Bill\? 
Sunday revival all over Christendom." Carrington notes it as a "reaction 
toward Christ and the Church," while Anderson and Annin are sceptical. The 
former writes, "desperate need of preaching the old Gospel in the terms of 
modern Hfe by trained men of deep spiritual life. Peril is to be found in 
cold intellectualism on the one side, and emotional religion on the other. It 
is of vital importance that the spirit of world revival should be directed by 
men not only of consecrated purpose, but cultivated brain and clear discrim- 
inating judgment." Annin is more definite in his criticism. "The years 
strengthen my conviction that God works slowly thru the ages, and not spas- 
modically. Hence, follows evolution necessarily, and the democracy and 
divinity of all truth, and all men. All men are God's children, therefore broth- 
ers. A consciousness of this sonship increases and is increased by self-respect 
and results in a constant increase of man's powers. This developm.ent of 
man is a slow growth, as the development of the world has been, taking ages 
for its accomplishment. So, in the individual, right character results from 
discipline in wildernesses, from learning lessons, from struggles, from vic- 
tories. It still consists, as Christ expressed it. 'in loving God and man.' Saving 
souls, then, is not accomplished in a night, a day, or a year, by a mountebank, 
an irreligious demagogue, a mesmerist, who runs off with $50,000 in his 
pocket. Truth is the food of the soul, and only sincere souls who love all 
truth, are loyal to all truth and thus to Christ." 

With this explosive, yet interesting, thesis of Annin's, it will be hard to 
get many of his eastern classmates to agree, who have worked in the Sunday 


campaigns, and cannot discount the tremendous power for good — permanent 
good — that is done by Billy Sunday. But my own personal word is, "Woe to 
the man who tries to imitate him. He is unique, the Lord is using him might- 
ily, but not as an 'ensample to the flock.' No greater mistake can he made. 
Only in his earnestness, his old gospel, and his overpowering singleness of 
aim. would we follow in his steps." 

The critics, of course, are another storm-centre, altho Cummings — Billy 
Sunday-like — dismisses them with a toss of his hand, saying : "Higher 
Criticism on its destructive side, is dead. The majority of our ministers 
preach the true gospel." On the other hand, Paton declares, "Progress in 
religious knowledge has been enormous in the last twenty years and the pre- 
judice against the scientific study of the Bible has well nigh disappeared, at 
least in New England. (He might have added also, in vicinity of New York). 
The progress in religious education is most encouraging. A fine type of men 
is now entering the ministry, men that are animated by the highest ideals." 

But several others shy at the shadow of the critics. Adams sees the 
"battle on between real and false faith for the possession of the church, and 
a mighty purging at hand for the shameless unfaith and bad faith of certain 
who sit high in the synagogue, and preach a gospel of anathema." Nelson 
says, "The greatest need is for clear-cut theology and protest against fads," 
with which W. H. P. Smith agrees: "The world wants the gosoel in its 
purity or not at all. A diluted apology for it, it has no use for. It wants the 
Bible in its entirety and not an expurgated edition of it." So Remington 
believes the "world is wearying of philosophical cobweb and more ready 
than ever for the solid truth," while Voorhies sees a "serious need evident 
in the church to get back to old standards of teaching and training." 

But, with it all, Williams raises another question, an administrative and 
serious one. He propounds two questions. 1. In the near future, at 
the present rate of change and new demands, will there be any need of theo- 
logical seminaries, as they now exist? 2. Is the future minister to be a 
pastor, a preacher for souls, or a mere manager? A man of excellent execu- 
tive ability, capable as an organizer, and a sport of sufficient athletic twist 
to run all side-shows that a modern community demands? Dunlap assures 
us that the photo-play, automobile and other developments in our social life 
have greatly complicated our ministry. Perhaps this is in the mind of Frank 
Hyatt Smith, when he says, "whole church needs staying up — restless." He, 
however, classifies himself as "severely orthodox," while Doughty wants to be 
put down as "liberal and progressive." 

All in all, the minor strain is in the minority in the Class. Eddy says, 
"Outlook very dark. We are witnessing a collapse of modern civilization, 
but it may lead to a signal divine intervention. (Luke 21:28-31)." Frank 
Fraser calls the times serious, "Approaching the fulfillment of phophecy as 
to Christ's second coming." With which R. J. Campbell agrees, "The terrible 
time of suffering is hastening after which Christ will come again, and set up 


His Kingdom." Campbell is studying at first-hand the Pentecostal cult, and 
finds them nearer the real N. T. spiritual life than any other. 

Fenwick Fraser looks at it thru true-blue spectacles, sees a "time of re- 
ligious decay, a recession from doctrinal position of Princeton, with Pres- 
byterianism scarcely retaining its traditional ascendency." Be that as it may, 
Carson says, "present discouraging outlook due to preaching men's theories 
and the 'thus saith the Lord' forgotten." 

But the optimists see all this, and a little more ; and that's the difference. 
They see a way out. Bryant is incurably optimistic "in spite of war and Billy 
Sunday." Carrington notes, "A much greater activity in giving and in Mis- 
sions.'' Gibbons, "Never greater revival activity and more Bible Study than 
at present." McLean, "A wave of revival is going on over the world. Thy 
day is at hand." Whitaker is broad-minded enough to see "a general im- 
provement in business, social and religious life. The Kingdom is making 
progress in all these lines." Warne reiterates, "in spite of all we see, hear 
and endure, God is imminent in the world and the time is coming when the 
crooked places shall be made straight, etc." Thompson's pen (or brain) 
wearied by the time he reached that question and he replied, 'Bad, but on the 

Thus writeth the Redactor. His task was easy. The hard work is yours 
to redress the wrongs, to mobilize every faculty and power for action, to set 
the standards of faith high, and of personal living higher, that no man may 
call in question the ideals of your life, or stain the glory of your crown. 


Say not the days are evil — who's to blame? 
And fold the hand and acquiesce — O shame! 
Stand up, speak out and bravely, in God's name 


It matters not how deep intrenched the wrong. 
How hard the battle goes, the day, how long. 
Faint not, fight on ! Tomorrow comes the song. 




Our journey begins in New England, with a visit to PATERSON, who 
takes us to his church in Newburyport, Mass., founded by Geo. Whitefield in 
1742. He grows warm in historical reminiscence over the dry bones of 
Whitefield under his pulpit, and the dry bones on the top of Whitefield's desk 
in his study, in the shape of sermons— oh, no, beg pardon ! Health fine, five 
children, but all other answers too brief for record. 

Extremes often meet, so going west we come upon BRYANT at South 
Attleboro, Mass., deep in new work, having organized the Bethany Congrega- 
tional Church on March 1, 1914, in the worst storm of the year. Two girls 
cheer his home-life. 

Here we turn aside to Mt. Vernon, N. H., where we find REMINGTON 
at his summer home, Rencroft. Has been doing supply work for three and 
a half years, but has a call now. Fine physically, weighing 190 pounds. 
Special interest in a boy of sixteen he is educating, a missionary-bred young 

Connecticut now claims us. At Hartford we greet PATON, newly-wed, 
with his ever-gracious presence and warm welcome. He has recently declined 
calls to the Chair of Oriental Languages and Literatures in the University 
of Michigan, and the pastorate of the Congregational Church at Litch- 
field, Mass. A popular teacher, a prolific writer, a fine fellow, the Class 
leave with him and his bride their very best wishes, and pass on to VOOR- 
HIES, at Thompsonville, Conn. Health excellent. Family scattering, one 
son married, another studying medicine, and a third in High School. 

Crossing over into the Empire State we enter the nation's metropolis to 
find McLEOD on the hard job he was after, as pastor of the St. Nicholas 
Reformed Church on Fifth Ave. After a visit this year to his former 
$300,000 church at Pasadena, we could not but admire McLeod's spirit for the 
"hard job." His latch string is still out at 151 Central Park West, health fine, 
with a son and a daughter. A few blocks up Fifth Ave to 42nd St. we find 
EDDY in the alcoves of the N. Y. Public Library, in the Dept. of Sociology. 
He commutes to Wyoming, N. J.., where he also has charge of the Presby- 
terian Church. Health excellent, and a boy and a girl in the family. 

Crossing to the Borough of Brooklyn we find CARSON at home at 744 
Pulnam Ave. Health, "alile to navigate," and family, like laws of Medes and 


Persians, unchanged, i. e., one son. "Approached" several times with calls 
but prefers to remain in state of "grace." (Pastor of Grace Presbyterian 
Church). Moderator of Brooklyn Presbytery. 

Crossing the Harlem, we seek out DOUGHTY at VVilliamsbridge, who 
is the chameleon of the Class ; now in business, now the Welfare Secretary 
of the Citizens Union of N. Y. City, now preaching (which he does about 
twenty times a year) and now campaigning for democracy, which he did for 
Wilson in 1912. "Feel as young as I did twenty-five years ago, and not a 
grey hair on my head." Helena teaching, John in Cornell studying agri- 

At Brewster we find GARDNER with home saddened by the death of 
his sister — a second one to die, upon whom he relied for the care and cheer 
ot his home. 

Over the river, amid the rich farms of Orange Co., is THOMPSON, the 
same, substantial defender of the faith as ever. Incidentally also, now a de- 
fender of ecclesiastical order, as Stated Clerk of Hudson Presbytery. 
Thompson's replies are too laconic for elucidation, and he deserves but pass- 
ing notice. However, we manage to decipher as to health, "Might be worse." 
He looks it. (See photo). He had the nerve to send his wife alone to the 
Orient last year. 

A trip up the beautiful Hudson brings us to Hoosick Falls, where Mc- 
GINNIS is beginning his third pastorate. His replies are even briefer than 
Thompson's — must be climatic — but his health is good. 

Westward, we find W. H. P. SMITH at Wyoming, N. Y., on his apple 
farm of 146 acres, recently bought in exchange for one of 82 acres. Evident- 
ly, farming pays — with Smith. Health good. 

FRANK HYATT SMITH was recently installed pastor of the Ken- 
more Presbyterian Church, in Buffalo's finest suburb. "The most harmonious 
church in the Presbytery. 25 years old and no quarrels. Honey in the comb, 
land of Canaan." Health, "tip top." Crack a hickory nut with my teeth each 
New Year's to see how I am in order for cracking the odious Unitarian doc- 

Coming to Akron, N. Y., CARRINGTON will probably meet us with his 
new auto, which, he claims, is the solution of the rural problem. Akron is 
a residential town of 2000, near Buffalo, and he serves two churches, six miles 
apart. Health good, he reports good revivals at all his charges, from 30 to 
100 being received at one time. Three daughters. 

Returning, we visit GIBBONS in his suburban home at Clark's Summit, 
near Scranton, where he is engaged with the International Correspondence 
School, in its Publicity Dept. Health too uncertain as yet to undertake a 
pastorate, yet much interested in a new church in his town. 


En route to Philadelphia from Scranton all travellers read in glaring 
letters on the highest point, "Allentown — Dwell Here and Prosper." So your 
Secretary came, primarily to organize a new church— the second in his 
ministry. This he has done under considerable difficulty, as the city is strongly 
German. As side-lines, he has been the Field Secretary of Men's Work for 
the Synod, addressing and organizing Presbyteries, and he is in training with 
Thompson, as Stated Clerk of his Presbytery, for the position of one, Rev. 
Wm. H. Roberts, D.D., L.L.D. Health good, two boys and a girl. En- 
joyed, with wife, this year, an extended trip to the Pacific Coast. He has 
just accepted the Executive Secretaryship of the Laymen's Missionary Move- 
ment for Eastern Penna., which includes all churches of all denominations 
east of Altoona, and part of New Jersey. His present work will be the 
directing of the big campaigns in Philadelphia, Reading, Harrisburg and 
perhaps Scranton. Headquarters, for the present, at Central Y. M. C. A., 
Philadelphia. Will resign here about October 1st, and reside at Glenside, Pa. 
near Philadelphia. 

Philadelphia finds us WHITAKER, our genial President, dubbed at the 
dinner, the "French Ambassador" for his natty appearance, who is Assistant 
Pastor at West Hope Church, which gathers in about a hundred souls every 
year. Health "always good," and cares light, with a wife that looks after 
him well. Why worry? 

A husky suburbanite is LEVINGOOD, living at Wayne, but pastor of 
the Trinity Church, Berwyn, with a son just graduated from Princeton 
University. HUGH MILLER you will f^nd at 1703 N. 16 St., still supplying 
churches. Was regular supply at Forestville Church from 1912-1914. Health, 
fairly good. WILLIAMS, another suburbanite, at Abington, the 200th 
anniversary of which church was celebrated last May. Williams also will 
tour the country with you in an auto and house you in one of the most 
charming manses imaginable. Health, "only fair." 

Nor must we forget New Jersey, with McMILLAN — last heard from at 
Atlantic City, But whether alive, semi-alive, or in love, "deponent saith 
not," for he is the only man from whom no word at all was received, altho 
four letters were sent. 

And BANNERMAN, at Titusville, near Trenton, with other things, 
keeping track of those scattering boys, five of them. But health good. In 
an adjoining parish is WARNE at the old Ewing Church, in one of the 
most comfortable country manses to be found. He, too, meets the rural 
problem with an auto. Two years ago, fifteen young men united with the 
church. Health good, except for periodic headaches, for which no help. On 
the other side of Warne is the parish of POLK, at Lawrenceville, and you 
will find him solving the rural problem afoot, or on the beautiful golf links 
back of his house. Polk wishes all the Class to know that a trolley connects 
Princeton with Lawrenceville, and he welcomes all comers. He is fortunate 
to belong to a little coterie of the best clergy in Central Jersey, that meet 
to discuss timely questions. 


Travelling southward, we visit BULL in his new field at Kennett Square, 
Pa., where he is pastor of the Toughkenamon and Unionville Churches, 
where McLeod began his ministry. We believe Bull also is inclined to farm, 
owning some land in that locality. The health of Mrs. Bull has not been 
good. Two daughters are teaching. 

Delaware holds only one member, and that is enough. For WYLIE is 
now Moderator of the Synod of Baltimore, and the old New Castle Church 
assumes a new dignity — also, Wylie. How can that motor boat ever hold you 
now? He must have reached the state of eternal bliss, for he says, "No 
change, not likely to \)e any." Perhaps frozen fast! No, not in Delaware. 
Too hot. Health good. 

On south we go, until the Capitol City finds us with CUMMINGS, in 
good health, with but one day's sickness — in how long, George? Hard field, 
but solaced by a clerkship in Presbytery (permanent) that helps out. 

ED. MILLER is at Gerardstown, W. Va., after a brief stay in the State 
Hospital. Somewhat improved in health, and raising chickens. 

ANDERSON we will find at Winston-Salem, the largest manufacturing 
city and business centre in North Carolina, and the seat of a splendid 
female college. He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Trustees 
of Davidson College, from which he received his D.D. in 1904. Declined 
call to First Church, Dallas, Texas, in 1909, then building a $200,000 church. 
Health better than in twenty years. One daughter graduated this year from 
Agnes College, another still there. In the seven years of his present pastor- 
ate 580 received, of which 306 were on profession. Church supports several 
foreign missionaries, and two ordained assistants to the pastor, for whom 
houses are being built at cost of $25,000. 

Still further south we find McLEAN, at Gulfport, Fla., living in his own 
home near St. Petersburg, the paradise of Florida, where he was pastor for 
three years. From 1912-1915 he served the First Presbyterian Church of 
Clearwater, Fla., and now supplies the Bethel Presbyterian Church of Safety 
Harbor, and the First Church of Pinellas Park. Health good. Adopted soa 

Returning to Ohio we greet FENWICK ERASER at Massillon, working 
to raise S. S. enrollment to 700— now past 400. But health "better than for 
years." About 100 received into church since 1912. Over in Michigan, at 
Holly, we may, or we may not, catch DUNLAP. For he is on the road most 
of the time, having demitted the ministry last Spring and travelling for his 
brother's firm in New York, Grosset & Dunlap, in whose New York office 
you may some time find him. In August he summers in a cabin on Pine 
Lake, in Mich., where he would "pile high the blazing logs" for any wayfarer 
of '90. Health, ordinary. 

In Illinois, at Peoria, we visit PARKER, who. for three years has been 
pastor of the Bethel Church. Thirty-six received during the year. It will 


keep Parker busy, introducing to us his family of eight sons and one daughter 
— some of whom are on the way to the ministry. 

A short trip to St. Louis, and ANNIN'S hospitable home at 2844 Acco- 
mac St. welcomes us. And we know whereof we speak, for we enjoyed that 
Iiospitality this summer. None better. Boys, don't pass Annin by, when 
within telephone distance. Hale him, and the doors swing open. For, altho' 
never ordained, Annin has much of the Princeton spirit yet, and loves his 
classmates still. He has just been advanced to the new High School building, 
and stands well as a teacher of Spanish and Latin. And John, thirteen years 
old, captured one of the prizes, offered by a local paper, for best original story. 

Sorry, but we must take now longer sweeps in our journey. For we 
cannot reach ADAMS without the long trip to Minnesota. At Crosby we will 
find him nestled in a fine clump of twenty-seven pine trees, on the border 
of a fine lake, dotted with summer cottages. You can row, cycle or motor 
with him, on his itinerant trips to halls, school houses and churches, preach- 
ing from three to seven times a week. A sort of early itinerant missionary, 
it seems, "with indefinite parish, indefinite income, and indefinite duties of 
widely diverse nature; in a population speaking twelve languages, all of which 
are Greek to me." His only degrees, "the Thinning Thatch and the Silver Crown 
skilfully combined for my special benefit, by Father Time." Yet, health fine, still 
young, one boy in college, studying for the ministry, the other in business, 
both matrimonially perilous. Thanks, Craig, for that generous letter. Wish 
others were like you. No pick and axe needed to get your history! 

JOHNSON, too, wrote a very nice letter, and deserves liberal space. For 
twenty-three years he has been on the Indian trail at Pine Ridge, So. Dakota. 
When he 'went there the Mission had three churches, two manses, one organ- 
ized congregation and one native worker. They now have nine churches, nine 
manses for native workers, five Y. M. C. A. halls, twelve new stations, of 
which seven have become organized congregations. Present membership, 
330. That many more have died, for the "death rate is shocking." And, 
listen, boys ! From 60 to 75 per cent, of the male members can lead the 
prayer meeting creditably, praying, speaking. 25 per cent, of the women can 
lead the women's meeting. The Reservation has 7000 Indians, and claims, we 
believe, a larger proportion of Christian adherents than any other, altho 
Johnson says, "heathenism is a controlling influence." His health is good, 
notwithstanding an operation at Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago. His hon- 
orary degree is "Ciye," given by the Indians, meaning "Elder Brother." The 
work has become so large that the Board has divided it and assigned another 
man to the other half. He had, at this time, twelve native Sioux workers 
under his direction. 

By way of Colorado, we come upon TROMPEN, at Aurora. Still Con- 
gregational Missionary for Colorado, altho has declined one call. Health 
perfect, and that of his wife and son, for whose health he went west, improv- 
ing. One grandson. 


CAMPBELL — modest, genial Henry — still has his "bow abiding in 
strength" in Phoenix, Arizona. And, again, we know whereof we speak. 
For it was our pleasure to supply his pulpit and mingle with his people for 
three weeks in June. And a more devoted people cannot be found ! Whether 
he, or his people, are the "it," it is hard to tell. VVe are not surprised to hear 
that he was urgently sought for other pastorates, notably the First Church 
of Salt Lake City. Henry is one of the star preachers of the Class, and 
says frankly, that since leaving the Seminary, his pulpit preparation has been 
the one great thing in his ministry. Would that more of us had followed in 
his footsteps ! Fie occupies a charming little bungalow of his own in that 
city, but is sufifering .from insomnia, and just now enjoying a long vacation 
east, and on Pacific Coast. He has two months off each year. After a long 
illness from tuberculosis of the spine, his wife died about three years ago. 
The Class were, we are frank to say, more pleased to see him at our dinner 
than any other — his first appearance with us since 1890. Strange to say, he 
had to be introduced. See photo (frontspiece) why? 

And now we reach California, the land of Sunshine and Flowers ! A 
"golden state" in every way, and happy the man that lives in it ! Let us 
first look up NELSON — straight, angular Nelson^with as straight a gospel 
as his body. At Santa Maria we will find him, unless on his son's ranch. 
Nelson enjoys a summer course at the University of California, which this 
year enrolled 5000 students in those courses — and second only to Columbia 
in winter enrollment. His health is "fine, never better;" has built a new 
church and manse, the former at cost of $12,000, said to be the most beautiful 
small church on the Pacific Coast. 

JUNGEBLUT is located still at Lodi, over German Reformed Church. 
This we know from minutes of his church and from a registered letter receipt. 
No reply to class letters since 1900. 

The Northwest claims FRANK FRASER, who moved from Minnesota 
to Oregon for health reasons. Now at Albany, Oregon. Health good, save 
occasional breaks in voice, his weak spot. Was in apple-raising, but nothing 
said about it this time. 

This completes the tour of our own country. We have swung from the 
Atlantic to the Pacific, from the cold of Minnesota to the tropics of Florida. 
What more can you ask, as a fulfillment of the injunction, "ye shall be wit- 
nesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria — " 

But that is not all. The "uttermost parts" are not forgotten, altho we 
might cherish the hope that, when the final history of the Class is written, our 
sons and grandsons shall have done more than we have done to fulfil that 
final clause, to carry the name of Christ to all the world. May some familiar 
name of the Class of '90 shine out on the annals of every missionary field 1 
Boys, girls, of the Class of '90, why not? 


Over in Canada we find R. J. CAMPBELL at present recuperating from 
a nervous breakdown at the home of his brother and sister in Toronto. Since 
1910 he has been pastor of Kanesack Church (Canada, we think). His 
eleventh charge, a missionary church at his going, but, in two months raised 
his salary $500, calling him at $2000. In three months the Sabbath School 
went from 75 to over 200 in attendance. He is now "open for a call.'' 

LYNN is also in Canada for health reasons, at Berlin, Ontario. But 
now in very good health and has not missed a Sabbath for two years. Was 
Commissioner this year to their Assembly. 

Across the seas now, first, to Syria, where, at Beirut, we find JESSUP, 
newly married, installed as Professor of Theology in Beirut Seminary, having 
persistently declined the presidency. Before leaving Zahleh, his people gave 
him, of their own meagre funds, a substantial reminder of their love and con- 
fidence. The war having called to the front all able-bodied Turks, men and 
boys, their families in Beirut were left without funds or work. The burden 
of their support fell largely on the Americans of the Mission and College. 
The city was divided into ten districts, and a woman visitor assigned to each 
district, Jessup and his bride have charge of a district in the old town and have 
780 people dependent on them for food, and 220 others, dependent for work 
— a thousand in all. 

Provisions are scarce, but a man in New York has generously given to the 
Red Cross for the work. American warships in the harbor assure peace. 
Jessup has three, daughters in America, being educated for mission work, 
while two are with him. 

And, finally, to Japan, where MOORE, graphically describes his case as 
"having the whole hog to scald." He, while on furlough, engaged in Home 
Mission work in Texas, from 1911-1913. His children, nine of them, are 
somewhat scattered. John Watson is a teacher in Winston-Salem, N. C. 
High School, where Anderson is; Boude and Lardner are at Austin College, 
Sherman, Texas ; Wallace with his uncle in N. Carolina, and the other five 
in Japan. Conditions in Japan demoralized by gross immorality, in the church 
and out of it. War, commercialism, and revived idolatry, since Russo- 
Japanese war, at fault. Loose theology worse than ever. Yet a wonderful 
forward movement in the great centres. 


flu fiDcmoriam 

The Father's Voice came early into our Class, and MURCHIE was gone, 
after only four years in the ministry. (Tuberculosis, 1894, Canada, age 33). 
A few days later, RANKIN joined him in the home above. (Appendicitis, 
1894, Baltimore, age 28). But a brief six months, and the Voice came to 
PHRANER in far-away Siam. Bravely he battled, but all in vain. The 
homeland shores of earth vanished, as a better homeland greeted him. 
(Hepatic abscess, 1895, Singapore, age 35). 

The Voice spared us then until 1901, when HEANEY was called on the 
eve of a new home and pastorate. (Typhoid fever, 1901, Philadelphia, age 
42). These four, strange to say, all died in hospitals. 

Another lapse of years, and BOB MASON, always a favorite, heard 
the Voice far up in the heart of the Rockies. He, too, worked till the last, 
and then said, "Yea, Lord." (1905. SaUda, Cal., age 50). HEDGES, our 
only colored classmate, also fought a losing game against the white plague. 
(Tuberculosis, 1906, Houston, Texas, age 39) . The voice had had a wide 
reach, touching our Class in Canada, in Siam, in the Rockies, in the South, 
and once more it is heard in the East, when OATES responded, after another 
long and brave struggle. (Splenic poison, 1909, Bridgeton, N. J., age 44). 

The fuller accounts of these men and their work are recorded in the 
printed record of 1910. 

Since that report the following have died : 


On June 30, 1912, at the age of 62, Bro. H. C. Baskerville entered into 
rest, at the Mercer Hospital, Trenton, N. J., where he had been for six 
weeks. He had been a great sufferer for six months from intestinal cancer. 
A Virginian by birth, his pastorates yet covered a wide field, in the South, the 
West and the Northwest. He loved the Home Mission work, and the rugged 
life of the pioneer. His early legal training gave him a trained mind, that 
was ever at the service of the church in defense of the truth. He was a clear 
thinker, a strong writer, and a, true servant. With us for only the Senior 
year, yet he made warm friends with us all. He received the degree of B.D. 
from Princeton Seminary in 1897. and of Ph.D., from Wooster University in 
1903. He leaves a widow, with four sons and one daughter (married). 



Allen was a Philadelphia boy. Unlike Baskerville, he never ventured 
far from home, his pastorates being at Glen Mpore, Pa., '90-'92, Ambler, Pa., 
'92-94, Pennington, N. J., '94-'04, and Haddonfield, N. J., '04-'15. The latter 
church had grown splendidly under his leadership and is recognized as one 
of the leading churches in South Jersey. The testimonials at his funeral ser- 
vice could not have been finer, and his popularity with his brethren was attest- 
ed by the presence of over a hundred clergymen at these services. He had 
conducted services on Sabbath and Wednesday evening, his last message being, 
"Ye are my Witnesses." On Thursday he was unwell and remained at home. 
At seven-thirty that evening he was taken with violent pain in the chest and 
died of heart failure in a few moments. His age was 51. His pulpit ability 
was marked, and his warm, genial temperament made him beloved of all. 
His widow, with two sons, William and Louis, survive him and are, at present, 
at Haddonfield. 


John B. McCuish is the second Canadian brother to be called home. Eight 
remain. He served as Stated Supply in St. Louis Mo., Fulton, Mo., Pueblo, 
Col., and Denver, Col. His first real pastorate was at Leadville, Col. 
He then became Professor of Ethics and Philosophy in West- 
minster College, Denver, from 'o/'-'og; but in '09 he went back to the 
pastorate as pastor at Newton, Kansas. Of him, a co-presbyter writes: "He 
was one of the ablest and most scholarly, one of the most earnest and success- 
ful, one of the finest-spirited and best-loved ministers in the State. No one 
was regarded more highly or looked to more constantly in all the work of 
the Presbytery than he." He had been ill for five months, altho in his letter 
to the Secretary this Spring he made no mention of it, and evaded it in all 
his correspondence, maintaining his cheery disposition to the last. He took a 
heavy cold last January, which developed serious heart trouble. In May he 
rallied, but in early dawn of June 29th he passed to his reward, in the full 
confidence of assured victory. One of the last letters he wrote was to our 
Class, in these words : "Keenly do I regret my inability to be present with 
you as you are gathered at our Silver Anniversary Banquet. I assure you 
that I rejoice when I learn of any of you being attended by any degree of 
success in your labor in the Kingdom of our Lord." 

He leaves a widow, with three children, two girls and one boy, which 
bears his father's name. They still reside in Newton, Kansas. McCuish 
received the degree of Ph. D. from thp University of New York in 1892, and 
the degree of D.D. from Park College in 1908. 


James S. E. Erskine was born in LeClaire, Iowa, December 10, 1858. 
After a year in Alleghany Seminary, ill health laid him aside until he entered 
Princeton with us in 1887. His one charge was at Thompson Ridge, New York, 


in the Presbytery of Hudson. His ministry was featured by modesty, faith- 
fulness and devotion. He was of a deeply religious nature and systematic and 
untiring in his efforts. His illness began a year ago with diseased glands of 
a cancerous nature. Radium treatment failed to heal. He was compelled 
to be often out of the pulpit, but he celebrated the 25th anniversary of his 
pastorate by preaching his last sermon on that day, May 9, altho he was un- 
able to stand thro' the whole service. He passed peacefully away on August 
9, leaving a widow. Thompson conducted the funeral service. 

It may be of interest to know that in his earlier college days Erskine won 
a prize of $75 over Wm. Jennings Bryan, in an inter-collegiate oratorical 
contest. He was a descendant of the Erskines of Scotland, founders of the 
Seceders Church. 





By Rev. J. H. Thompson 

Mr. President, Fathers, Brethren, and Ladies : 

Never before have I been so impressed with the difference between a 
seventeen meter gun and a rifle. Nevertheless I offer no apology for appear- 
ing at this time, in behalf of the Class of '90, for I am reminded that it is 
the function of the infantry to take the trenches, after they have been shelled 
by the artillery. 

If what Dr. Patton says is true — and I presume it is — that these Doctors 
and Professors are on the firing line, then I am convinced that the Presby- 
terian Church is in a like condition with Germany, in that she has no rear, for 
certainly the Class of '90 is on the firing line with the commissary department 
woefully weak, at times. 

1 may say of the Class of '90, that it is a very uniform class, and if I 
were not ^a member of the Class, I would say of uniformly high grade. We 
have no one man who towers so high above the others like Dr. Patton, that he 
forms a label for his class, and yet I am not unmindful of the fact that I have 
Wylie on my left, the notorious — I should say worthy — Moderator of the 
Synod of Baltimore, and Gibbons, an author of no mean repute. On my left 
is Campbell, from Arizona, who has given us one of our largest churches of 
the great West, and time would fail me to speak of Whitaker and Polk, and 
Warne, and Williams, Levengood, Bannerman, and Everitt, together with 
the many other illustrious members. 

In representing the Class on this occasion, it affords me great pleasure 
to be able to announce that during the past twenty-five years we have not 
grown so good tliat we can dispense with an atonement wrought through the 
death and resurrection of a God Christ ; that we have not grown so wise that 
the Book of Wisdom, the Word of God is no longer the Book of Books for 
us; that we have not become so powerful that we can instruct the Almighty 
as to what he may, and may not do ; and above all, I am thankful to be able 
to say that we have not become so bad that we can eliminate his Satanic 
Majesty from the Universe, and account for all the devilishness in the world, 
by the pernicious activity of our own souls. 


On the side — the Class has been manifesting, what is to me, an undue 
interest in the increase of the size of my waistcoat during the past twenty- 
five years. I have not told them the secret, but my friend Courtland Robinson 
over there knows it, and I am going to tell you. Twenty-five years ago, when 
I won my freedom from Dr. Davis, I resolved studiously and religiously to 
avoid all future association with Daghesh-lene. 

NOTE. — It is only fair to say that Bro. Thompson was only chosen by the 
Class the night before the dinner. McLeod was the appointee of the 
Seminary Execrtive Committee, but was detained thru illness. 




The last word has been written, the last message read. Has it paid? 
Your Secretary cherishes two hopes, first, that his feeble efforts in this line 
may serve to keep burning the fires of devotion to the truth, as we learned it 
at Princeton, and perchance hold a little more steady our light, as the dark- 
ness presses, and a soul out of the night cries for help; and, secondly, that the 
Class Spirit may be so constant, so sympathetic, so broad, that every member 
may feel its warmth, and it be easier for every son and daughter of the Class 
to do right and harder to do wrong. And that the bonds of '90 be bonds for 
service, not self, for uplift, not censure, for truth and reality, not the false 
and unreal. Will you help? If a single fact in this history has evoked a 
thought of commendation, write the brother or sister to that effect; if it has 
struck a sympathetic chord in your own life and belief, tell the brother of it; 
or if you read between the lines, a message unexpressed, or hear a sigh 
unconsciously given, open your heart to that one, and pen at once your 
thoughts in language, Spirit-born. It all helps — oh, so much. And it costs — 
one stamp. We further trust that these several annals of the Class have so 
pleased you, that, to preserve them, you will wish them bound. If so, and a 
copy of the report of 1891, 1900, or 1910 is missing, you can have one gratis 
upon a postal request. Again, cost — one cent. God willing, it is likely that 
another edition of this History will be written in 1920 and possibly each de- 
cade thereafter. It may fall to the lot of others to write them. For your 
patience, your responsiveness, your co-operation hitherto, we thank you. May 
the only success worthwhile be yours, the success that consists in meeting 
God's expectations in God's way in God's measure. 

Forever haltless hurries Time, 

The Durable to gain. 
Be true, and thou shalt fetter Time 

With everlasting chain.

laan - 1920 


The thirtieth Reunion and Dinner of the Class of 1890 
was held at the Orange Inn, Princeton, on Monday evening", 
May 3d, 1920. It was especially interesting to us, as the Inn, 
under tlu- management of Miss Nisbet, is the old home of the 
■■[■wibbi."' We lingered in our social hour before the dinner 
in the old familiar library. The following sat down at the two 
tables: Mr. and Mrs. Whitaker, Mr. and Mrs. Henr. Camp- 
bell, Mr. and Mrs. Adams, Mr. and Mrs. Polk, Mr. and Mrs. 
i^.annerman, Mr. and Mrs. Moore. Mr. and Mrs. Everitt. Mrs. 
.^llen, Warne, Carson, Thompson, Gardner. Eddy, Frank H. 
Smith, Carrington, Parker, Levingood and Wylie — or 25 in 
all. The next day at Commencement there were present Mr. 
and Mrs. Fenwick Eraser who missed getting in the evening 
before. (At Assembly this year, were also McGinnis, McMil- 
lan and Paterson.) The Secretary read the history for the 
last five years ana it was ordered printed. Each member was 
then called upon in order for some account of himself, and 
the discussion waxed so warm over some subjects that it was 
far past midnight when we left those hallowed walls for some 
lued^ed rest. Whitaker presided as usual in his happy man- 
ner. I'he Secretary can only say that all present looked in 
the best of health and were keenly alive to the great problems 
of the present day. We were given no opportunity to speak 
at the Alumni dinner, a new rule being in operation that lim- 
ited class responses only to the fifty-year men. Three other 
addresses upon living themes were given. Another reunion 
will be held in 1925. Get ready for it. Former copies of His- 
tory of 1910 and 1915 will be sent gratis on application. Do 
you need any? ,

CLASS HISTORY— 1915-1920 

The mantle of the prophet's office may have iDene worth 
praying for, but not so. the historian's. For the chronicler of 
events can speak with little authority. The best he can do is 
to say with Scott : 

"I cannot tell how the truth may be, 
I say the tale as 'twas said to me." 

All in all, the last half-decade of our career has been easy 
sailing. We have lost, by death, but one member, Williams. 
All have been located ; some have found their way back into 
the active pastorate ; and, generally speaking, all is well. 
Changes have not been so numerous, salaries have been in- 
creased, wedding bells of the next generation are ringing, 
why worry? 

Your secretary has been near no Ouija Board, and ven- 
tures on no prognostications, but steers where the facts, not 
Fates, direct. 

First of all, let us review our roster of honored names. 
AVe graduated fift\'-seven in number. Twelve have passed on 
to their heavenh- c^ovvas in the follov/ing order: Murchie, 
after four years of service ; Bob Rankin, after four ; Phraner. 
after five; Henney. after eleven; Bob Mason, after fifteen; 
Hedges, our colored, after sixteen ; the beloved Oates. 
after nineteen; Baskervi^le, patriprchus maximus, after twen- 
tv-two.; Allen, McCuish, and Erskine, after twenty-five; and 
Williams, after twenty-eight. ' The average term of these 
twelve in years of actual ministerial service is less than six- 
teen years. Two (IMurchie, Hedges) died of the dreaded 
v/hite plague, one (Allen) was called suddenly, the others 
passed away after davs and weeks of weary suffering, that 
Rave ample time for fullest witnessing to the power of sus- 
taining grace. 

Perhaps no better tribute can be paid these honored breth- 
ren than to reiterate our sincere interest in their remaining 
loved ones, and to give them the honored place in this brief 
chronicle of passing events. 

Let us, therefore, with due reverence for these luinored 
names, call the 


or the families of our beloved dead. All these families havo 
been heard from, except two; Mrs. Heaney, whose letter was 

returned undelivered, and she will now be hard to locate ; and 
Mrs. Hcdg-es (now Mrs. Johnson) whose letter to her former 
address at San Antonio, Texas, was not returned, nor has any 
reply l>t'cn received. 

AIXEN — Mrs. Minnie L. Allen is residing in her own 
home at 307 Kings Highway, East Haddonfield. N. J., which 
was licr husbands last field, and in which church she is still 
most active. Of her two boys. William Allen, Third, is Fac- 
tory Manager at the Abrasive Co., Frankford, Pa. He was 
confidential clerk in Gen. Scotts office at Camp Dix and was 
sent on special mission to Texas and North Carolina. Louis 
is in the banking business in New York, is married, and has 
one child, Samuel Clement, born Feb. 5. 1917. 

BASKERVILLE— Mrs. Emma Reed Baskerville still 
resides at Princeton at 15 Van Deveneter Ave. Her family 
of four sons and one daughter are located as follows: Charles 
\^ice-President and also Acting President of Bellevue Col- 
lege, Neb. He received the degree of D. D. last June, but is 
about to resign his work and take up the pastorate ; William 
E. graduates this year from Princeton Seminary and goes out 
as Home Mission- -y to Brookings. Oregon, on the far west- 
ern coast, a true son of his father in his Home Mission zeal ; 
Robert is a pastor at Conemaugh, Pa. ; Arthur graduates from 
Princeton University this June and goes out under appoint- 
ment of the Canadian Board to British Columbia for a year, 
when he will return and enter the Seminary, making in all 
five sons that this family has given to the ministry. The one 
(laughter, Mrs. Julia Hensel, is Dean of Women in Monmouth 
College, 111. Two children have died, one in missionary ser- 
\ice in Persia. 

ERSKINE— Mrs. Esther M. G. Erskine has purchased a 
home near the village of Pine Bush, N. Y., where she is' en- 
gciged in various church activities, retaining her member- 
ship, however, in the church at Thompson Ridge, which her 
husband served for twenty-five years. 

MASON — Mrs. Mason at first moved to her old home in 
De Soto. Mo., but four years ago moved to Oklahoma City, 
near which city her mother and sister live. She has just re- 
turned from hospital treatment. Naturally, her life is wrap- 

ped up in her only child, Robert Judson. now 17, with 5 feet. 
6 inches of stature, and a weight of iiq pounds. "In expres- 
sion and mind, he is like his dear father, but looks like his 
mother, they say." He has carried off the highest honors in 
his grammar grades, was made the editor of his High School 
paper the first year there, rnade all debate teams, and won the 
gold medal in the oratorical contest with seven schools. Also, 
an athlete, carries four solids at school, works in Carnegie Li- 
brary after school hours and on Saturdays. Is at Estes Park, 
Col., for summer work, and aims to be "the best surgeon pos- 
sible, and put the Mayo boys out of commission." 

Well, success to you, Robert ! You have the gifts and 
pluck of your noble father and our hats are off to the coming 
surgeon of America," 

McCUISH — We regret to report that Mrs. McCuish soon 
followed her husband, departing this life on March 26, 1916, 
nine months after his death. Their three children are at 514 
East Eighth St., Newton, Kansas, (his last charge) under 
care of a sister. Their names and ages are: Helen K., 16; a 
Freshman in Park College; John B. Jr. 13, in Eighth Grade, 
and Anna Margaret. 10, in Sixth Grade. 

GATES— Mrs. Ethelinde D. Gates is at her old home 
in Princess Anne, Md. She was actively engaged in war 
work as a Countv Chairman. Her invalid mother passed 
away last year. Robert Luther is a student in Mercersburg 
Academy, Pa., preparing to enter the Engineering School at 
Lehigh University. He is a brilliant mathematician, and, like 
his father, with a mechanical bent of mind. Although only 
j6, he tops six feet in height, and so resembles his father that 
a visitor at the Academy, without knowing his name, identi- 
fied him as an Gates. 

PHRANER — The two boys sof Phraner are heard from. 
Stanlev was a Lieut, in the Marine Aviation Service. Wilson 
was in the Navy, and spent most of his two years at New- 
port and Yorktown with the Atlantic Fleet, receiving his 
commission as Ensign, just before leaving. Stanley is at 
present Secretary of the Princeton Y. M. C. A. at Pekin, 
China, is married and has two daughters. Wilson is now in 
])usiness in New York with his address at 385 Jefferson Ave., 

RAXKIN — Mrs. Elizabeth Rankin still makes her home 
at Berlin, N. J. — her pre-marital home. Of her children, Rob- 
ert is American Consul at Warsaw. Poland. Rejected physi- 
cally during- the war ,he yet found service as a physician in 
the Bureau of Standards in Washington. Helen is teachei 
of English in the Livingston Park Seminary, Rochester, N. 
Y., and also this year, its Acting-Principal. Ella May will 
graduate this year from Millersville Normal School, Pa., to 
become also a teacher. Suffering from poor health, her life- 
work has been somewhat retarded. 

WILLIAMS— Mrs. Harriet A. Williams is at present 
Secretary of the Riverdale Country School at Riverdale-on- 
the Hudson. Her home is at Ardmore, Pa. 


As to the living members of the class, we are glad to report 
that all have been located, although several have not been 
heard from — an inexcusable lapse of something- more than 
memory, we fear. We can only say that Jungeblut is still at 
Lodi, Calif.; Bryant, at Saylersville, R. I.; McMillan at At- 
lantic City; R. J. Campbell at Foam Lake, Saskatchewan, 
Canada. These have been the notorious sinners as to 
answering class letters. We hope, when the trumpet blows, 

they will be on hand, but 

Following our Questionnaire, we will review the re- 
sponses in this order : 


ADAMS — One son, Arthur, at Assiout, Egypt, teaching,

at death's door. But reached New York May i8th. His 
weakness kept him at home, and fearing the cold American 
winter, he' sailed for Syria on Sept. 30, arriving Nov. 6th, 
since which time he has been resting and recuperating. Al-

Summing it all up, as far as reported, there are now four- 
teen children of the class married, seven sons and seven 
daughters, with nine grandchildren, five boys and four girls. 


ADAMvS gave two boys to war service; Arthur was with 
the British "Y" in Palestine for a time. Now in Assioi't, 
Egypt. Harold was in service^ a year and was wounded in 

BANNERMAN had one son who was in three major 
offensives, his troop, Second Cavalry, being the first to cross 
the Moselle, and first to reach the Rhine. He was in Cob- 
lenz with the Army of Occupation. Another son, Paul, was 
in Navy. 

DOUGHTY had a son. John G., 2d Lieut. U. S. A. (Vol- 
unteers) and a son-in-law, Reuben Peterson, an Ensign in 
the Navy. 

DUN LAP had a son for two years and three months in 
the navy.

and a daughter who acted as nurse for seven months in Army 
Llospital at Colonia. N. J. 

McLEAN had a son, an engineer, in the great March 
drive of 1918, and was in five of the great battles, coming 
home in October, 1919, without a scratch. 

WYLIE had a son and daughter who risked their lives 
in work in the High Explosive Projectile Plate Works of 
Bethlehem Loading Co. 

WARNE had a son-in-law in air service, about ready to 
go over, when peace came. 

Of our own men, POLK was in "Y" work in France, and 
up in the firing-line. GIBBONS edited a paper for the Ship- 
ping Board one summer. WYLIE was chairman of Commit- 
tee of One Hundred in a Liberty Loan Drive that won three 
Over-the-Top Flags and one medal. CARSON was a camp 
pastor at Camp Upton, N. Y. ; ANDERSON was constantly 
in platform work. GARDNER was booked and passported 
for over-seas, when his duodenum got on a rampage, and put 
him on his back. NELSON was very active, especially in 
looking after enlisted men-from his oil fields. 


Our list of publications from the Class is pitifully small 
for this half-decade, unless the fellows are fearfully modest. 
GIBBONS has given out a work on the Study of Englisli, 
and EDDY has edited various manuals of telegraphy in which 
work he is engaged as well as in preaching. F. H. SAHTM 
issues thousands of a popular card, entitjed "My Church and 


BULL through an invalid wife, has held no pastorate for 
two years and sees little prospect of so doing in the immediate 
future. FRANK FRASER is on his fruit ranch, in State of 
Washington, near Kenncwick, preaching erstwhile at Sunny- 
side Church, fifty miles Ivom his home. The work is encour- 
aging, he says, with a recent addition of seven new mem- 
bers and a prospect of sixteen more at the next Communion. 
He has had a salary increase of $300. GIBBONS, besides his 
regular teaching work at State College, is also engaged in Bi- 
ble Study work at the Summer School and in "Y" Bible 
classes. McLEAN has erected a church buildinq- that would 

now cost at least Sio.ooc witl^iout e\'cr asking- for a cent of 
money and has maintained it ever since without ever asking 
support. \V. H. P. SMITH is still sticking close to the farm, 
of about 146 acres wnth twelve milch cows to feed the babies 
of the city. He supplies occasionall - nearby pulpits. Since 
we met in May. FENWICK-FRASER has been installed as 
pastor at Poland, Ohio. Hudnut. one-time member of our 
Class, preached the sermon at his installation. 

ED. MILLER is in the State Hospital for the Insane at 
Weston, W. Va. His general health is good, but little hope 
for improved mental condition Is not violent, and goes there 
of his own volition. 

MOORE is summering at Tavlorsville. N. C, with his 
relatives. He expects to come north in the Fall and wants to 
visit as many of us as possible. He can give you a rattling 
good speech on Japan. 

HENRY CAMPBELL is most pleasantly situated in 
San Jose, Calif., about thirty miles below San Francisco by 
trolley ; has an Assistant, was Chairman of New Era Com- 
mittee of Presbytery ; came east to Assembly, but his broth- 
er-in-law and colleague to Assembly died en route east, and 
he had to leave Assembly to take the body back to Kansas 
City. He has been resting since at Wooster, Ohio. 

NELSON has also a fine California home at Santa Bar- 
bara on the hillside OA'erlooking sea and mountains and in- 
vites the Class to look in. Lie is now doing special work for 
the men in the oil fields of two counties ; no organized 
churches, but preaches three times each Sabbath and each 
night in week except Saturday ; has twelve preaching points, 
sometimes in dance halls, or in dining-halls, or in school 
houses. The men for whom he works have given him already 
two Fords and he has traveled in five years over 75.000 miles 
in them. As a side-line, he lectures on Art, and Travel. The 
Class Boy, William F. Jr., was in the army a. year and is now 
working in Nevada for "the S. P. R. R. Co. 

ANDERSON is pastor of one of the oldest Presbyterian 
Churches of the South, the Independent Presbyterian Church 
of Savannah. Its organist of former years, Dr. Lowell Mason, 

has given the church some of its greatest hymns, as "From 
Greenland's Ic • Mountains." and "When I survey the Won- 
drous Cross." His church is considered one of the four most 
beautiful churches in America. He was elected President of 
Austin, Texas, Theological Seminary in 191 5, but found its 
financial condition misrepresented to him and he was released 
from that work soon after taking it up. 

DOUGHTY after six years in Civic Work in New York 
among "the highbrows, dillettantes, officials and politicians," 
breathes once more the pure, free air of the ministry, in a Re- 
formed pastorate in West Hoboken, N. J. 

CARSON induced his congregation to pay off $15,000 
of their mortgage on the 20th anniversary of his pastorate, 
and then they induced him to accept a check for $1,000 as a 

recognition of his splendid services. 

McLEOD has been in deepest waters over his son's mys- 
terious absence for two years, lost absolutely to everybody. 
He was recently found in Virginia, has been in hospital, and 
somewhat enfeebled, but is now at home with hope of full re- 
covery. He received his honorable discharge before leaving- 

FRANK HYATT SMITH issued a volume of Shakes- 
pearian Studies that won an encomium from a Professor at 
Johns Hopkins "and I went on a Retreat as the Catholics say 
ior ten days." He contributes a sermon each week to Buf- 
falo papers, and is the joker of the Presbytery. A strong 
Mason, and a true-blue Princetonian. "Gave an obstreperous 
elder a dose of catnip and assafaetida and he is milder than a 
Norwegian lamb. A word to the wise, etc." 

EVERITT was for two months an organizer of five 
counties in the Interchurch drive last winter, he also organiz- 
ed X^jcational Suppers for High School boys under Board of 
lulucation. He had Eastern half of Synod of Pennsylvania- 
Has had $500 increase of salary in last two years. 


Only one death has occurred in the last five years. WIL- 
LIAMS, our "Ji"^/' began to fail in health two or three years 
ago, through valvular heart trouble. On Jan. 3, 1918, he was 
seized with severe pain, was taken to Presbyterian Hospital 
in Philadelphia. He seemed to improve the first week, hut 
then began to "slip from us." His suffering was intense, 
with no relief from morphia. After five weeks in the hospi- 
tal, he passed quietly away on Sunday morning, March 3d. 
He was buried in the cemeter}- of the Great Valley Presby- 
terian Church, Chester County. Pa. 

This closes the chronicles of another pentad. The Lord 
holds each year in His own hand. When that hand unfolds, 
we have but to receive. But blessed be His name! His pur- 
poses of grace are all and only for good At our time of life, 
those purposes will no doubt ripen faster and faster. God grant 
we may keep step with the ripening, and our faces be ever, 
v>:lii increasing expectancy, unto Him.

Kcab at tl^e dlass Kc^llnion Dinner at 
tl^e ©range '^nn, Princeton, IT. 3-, 
nionbai} epcning, lUay \\, 1925. 


Once again, the home of the "Rabbi," our beloved teacher of old, 
Dr. Green, — now the Orange Inn — was the Mecca of our Class at its 
thirty-fifth re-union on May 11, 1925. Even a heavy rain did not 
dampen our spirits. It was a cheery gathering, happy over renewed 
fellowship. Some new faces appeared as R. J. Campbell, Alexander 
and Matthews. The rest showed but slight changes since last we 
met. We had the unique pleasure this time of welcoming two brides, 
Mrs. R. J. Campbell and Mrs. John McMillan, and no men in all the 
group were happier. And why not? It was a delight to welcome 
both the brides and the happiness. 

We also were honored with the presence and words of Prof, and 
Mrs. Chas. R. Erdman — since elected Moderator of our General As- 
sembly — , Prof, and Mrs. "Jack" Davis, and Prof. Smith. Mr. Dulles 
sent regrets. These are all the old faces left on the Faculty. Dr. 
Erdman met with us, not as a former teacher but as a former co- 
student. Bishop Paul Matthews — ^with us only in Junior year — now 
Episcopal Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey, and living in Prince- 
ton — gave us his delightful and affalble presence for awhile before the 
dinner, but could not remain. 

At the tables, spread this time in the old Library of the Rabbi 
itself, Whitaker presided, and the following were present: Mr. and Mrs. 
Whitaker, Mr. and Mrs. Everitt (with their guests, J. Donald Everitt, 
Miss Laura Hetzel and Miss Emily Clingan, all of Lewisburg), Mr. and 
Mrs. John MiMillan, Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Campbell, Mr. and Mrs, Ban- 
nerman, Alexander (with us in Junior year only), Parker, Mr. and Mrs. 
Thompson, Wylie, Gardner, Levingood, Mrs. Allen and Paton. 

The recital of experiences filled the hours until midnight. Donald 
Everitt entertained with musical selections on his saw. The Class 
History was read and ordered printed and sent to the Class. A report 
of the Treasurer is also herewith printed. The contributors of this 
year are entitled to a free copy of the History. If your name is not 
on that list, may we ask for a "gift of appreciation" — of any amount 
to keep the treasury filled until the next re-union in 1930. It is only 
to be expected that Death will begin more serious inroads now as we 
pass on into the "upper years", and it may be necessary to send out 
more notices than usual. This, the Secretary is very willing to do, if 
the Class provide the funds. He would appreciate prompt notice of 
any deaths of members of the Class. 

No charges are made for the History. Your gifts are voluntary. 
Only once in five years do we call for funds. The Class again rallied 
to the work of our only missionary abroad, John Moore, and sent him 
$175 which he has gratefully acknowledged. 

FRANK B. EVERITT, Secretary.

CLASS HISTORY— 1920-1925 

The writing of history is no dull pastime. To some, it may be 
only the chronicling of facts; to another, the more interesting work of 
a Redactor. But, if so, there were famous redactors of old — so we are 
told — altho not in Princeton. With the archaeologist, the historian 
never knows what delightful surprises await him. 

Speaking of archaeology, reminds me of the lines of Webster — ^no, 
not Noah, nor Daniel, but a better Biblical name, John — ^who said : 
"I do love these ancient ruins. 
We never tread upon them, but we set 
Our foot upon some reverend history." 
"Ancient ruins — reverend history" How suggestive. I can vouch 
for the latter — will you for the former ? For ever since we laid claim, 
via the daghesh-forte route, to the title of "Rev.", we have been mak- 
ing "reverend history." 

But 'those ancient ruins'! My vision of that has been knocked 
into smithereens by reading of Remington getting an increase of $500 
in salary in his 62d year, and Trompen still going at the rate of a 
thousand miles a month in his Dodge ear and adding 44 members to his 
church last year;, and then, worst of all, two dyed-in-the-wool bachelors 
having the nerve to take unto themselves a wife when, as Remington 
says, "the sage tea has washed out of my hair." If you call that 
"ruins", please laibel them what age. 

But we are out of the "grades", — yea, even beyond the Freshman 
stage,, and we perforce must look upon ourselves as "grave, old Sen- 
iors." The words of Goneril to her tormented father King Lear are 
not amiss: 

"I do beseech you, to understand my purpose aright, 
As you are old and reverend, you should be wise." 
Wisdom belongeth to years, and we need not be ashamed of the 
unconscious note of authority with which we are apt now to speak. 
Would that the world would trust a little more the sage advice of its 
fathers, (except certain ex-college Presidents who seem to have lost 
their bearings on the Prohibition question.) 

But, with Jean Ingelow, let us say, in her winsome way: 
"Show me your nest with the young ones in it, 
I will not steal them awayj 
I am old, you may trust me, linnet, linnet, 
I am seven times one today." 
And we — 'ancient ruins' — are seven times seven — and more. Who 
can distrust us ? So do not challenge without cause my statements as 
to age, which I give on no better authority than Bro. Alford Kelley 

(John, as we knew him) who has a penchant for dates, it seems — not 
the college kind, however, for he, too, with Gardner, loves "single cun- 
sedness" — and birds. 

Keiley points out the fact that Baskerville (if he had lived) and 
Lynn are 75 this year, Lynn, passing his three-quarter-century mark 
on Nov. 23 of this year. Wonder if we can remember that long enough 
to "shower" him with good wishes, as leading us all to the century- 
mark. Mason, if living, would have been 70. Then comes a goodly 
host of 26 living graduate members, who are in their sixties, with 
Frank Hyatt Smith, leading them on, and McLeod trailing in the rear 
to see that none deny their age and fall out. Before the year is over, 
Wylie, Carrington, Anderson, Fenwick Fraser, R. J. Campbell and 
McMillan will have "toed the line." Of course, R. J. and John are 
very excusable for ageing so much the past year. Who wouldn't? 
The strain must havej been terrible. And then there will be seven of 
us (Levingood, Frank Fraser, Everitt, Moore, Carson, Johnson and 
Bryant) to push on after the rest over the sixty-year line. But of all 
of you here to-night, it is only fair to say that Bishop Matthews is the 
Junior of us all, altho in one of the highest offices of his church. 

For our regular class, 1866 was the banner year for births, with 
1865, a close second. Baskerville was the oldest man when we grad- 
uated, at the age of 40, while Hedges, our colored brother, was the 
youngest at 21. 

But, again the archaeologist in us speaks of some strange "finds." 
Adam (s) like his famous progenitor, was born, of course, in Eden 
(Ohio). Matthew (s) when joined with Paul is staggeringly Scriptural. 
Gibbons and Allen, just missed by one day, being a New Year's gift. 
Numerous lights in the Class cam'e near breaking into this firmament 
at the same time, but a merciful Providence saved the day, e. g., what 
an effulgence there would have been, if Moore, Rankin, and Carson had 
ever struck this mundane sphere at the same time, and yet they only 
missed it by ten days. Or what cataclysms of nature — infant nature, 
of course^ — might have occured, if Alexander, Jessup and Thompie could 
only have had a little, confab in advance, and timed their appearonce 
in this world for the same day. For they were only five days apart. 
Surely, after all this, 

"There is a Divinity that shapes our ends. 
Rough hew them how we will." 

But here we are — 'ancient ruins' — and I am here to testify that 
about every last one of you sent back to your Secretary, in reply as 
to your health, such expletives of over-abundant health as almost to 
force a new Thesaurus of. words. Listen!: "good, never better" 
(Adams); "never better" (R. J. Campbell); "Perfect, feel as young a.^ 
ever" (Doughty); "first-class" (Lynn, at 75); "young at 68" (F. H. 
Smith); "excellent" (Cummings). Not a sick one on the whole list, 

nor even a tired one, as far as we can see. Not even any enthusiasm 
over the new Pension Plan. Either you are a mighty vigorous lot, or 
the biggest bunch of — Jesuits, we ever saw. Well, so be it. Praise 
God for good health. May the next pentad find you as buoyant and 
hopeful as now. It makes all the difference in the world, whether, at 
sixty, you are a Barzillai or a Caleb. 

"Grow old along with me. 

The best is yet to be. 

The last of life, for which the first was made. 

Our times are in His hand. 

Who saith: "a whole I planned, 

Youth shows but half; trust God, 

See all, nor be afraid." 

Before proceeding further, it behooves us to pause a moment be- 
fore some new-made graves in the last five years. The first to be 
called away after our last meeting in 1920 was our beloved Jessup, 
who died on Dec. 12, 1920, from acute bronchitis after thirty years of 
service in Syria, which was homeland to him. For he was born in 
Beirut, Syria, in 1862, his father, being the renov^rned missionary. Rev. 
H. H. Jessup. Our Jessup was one of the charter members of the 
Student Volunteer Movement, and went out to Syria in Nov. 1890. He 
began work at Zahleh, where he stayed until 1915, when he was trans- 
ferred to Beirut as professor in the Theological Seminary. But the 
war came on, and theology as well as other studies had a slim chance 
for awhile. The Mission at Beirut was made the headquarters for 
Relief Work and Jessup was madei the Secretary of that work. He 
studied' Turkish law and represented the Mission with the Government. 
His executive ability at this time was invaluable, and he was looking 
forward to a great field of usefulness in training Syrian young men 
for Christian service. Jessup was twice married, his second wife, sur- 
viving him. He received the degree of D. D. from Temple University, 

Strange to say, our beloved brother Edward Demoss Miller passed 
away four years ago on Feb. 19, 1921. His death was not reported 
even to his Presbytery, and his name was still in the Minutes of the 
Assembly last year. But this can hardly be blamed to carelessness of 
Presbyterial clerks. Ed was on the roll of the Phila. North Presby- 
tery but had been for many years, leading the life of a recluse at 
Gerardstown, W. Va., where he had some kind of a chicken farm. No 
one ever got a line from him. He died of tuberculosis at the age of 
08 years, eight months, and 12 days. He is buried in the old Gerards- 
town cemetery. Ed was a most likeable fellow, but, as we all know, 
had a rather disappointing career. Of brilliant mind, he carried off 
the Classical Fellowship in Princeton College in 1886, and ranked high 

as a student in the Seminary. He had only one actual pastorate, at 
Huntingdon Valley, Pa., and that for only one year. Then he began 
that "walkfest" of his, in studying in the different universities of the 
world, a philosophic epicure, all the calories he cared for were the 
Kantian Categories, or the like. He became a great authority or 
Kant, but his mind and ministerial abilities were practically wrecked. 
He took his Ph. D. at Berlin, after long years of study there. He 
waited in vain for, some Chair in Philosophy over here to invite him, 
but nothing came his way, and his mind broke almost completely, so 
that he shut himself apart from the rest of us, being cared for b;. 
kindly hands within his family circle. 

On Feb. 26, 1922, our Classmate Wm. A. Annin passed away in 
his home in St. Louis after a nine days illness of pneumonia, leaving 
a widow and two children. Interment was at Rolla, Mo. Annin came 
to Princeton in 1879, entering the University as a Fresliman, and made 
his profession of faith in the 1st Church here, while a Freshman. He 
v;ent into teaching, after graduation, for several years, and entered the 
Seminary with us in 1887. He never was licensed or ordained, pre- 
ferring to follow his chosen profession of teaching. He was supt. of 
Schools in Boonville, Mo., from 1899-1903, and of Macon, Mo., from 
1903-1908. He then entered the High School work in St. Louis, and 
became one of the most successful teachers of that city. His high 
place in the hearts of both his sudents and fellow-teachers was shown 
in many ways during his illness. Once, during that illness, when some 
one said: "everybody loves Mr. Annin", he roused himself enough to 
say, "I would rather they should say that than that I was rich or 
famous." He was also Librarian 'of his school at the time, and had 
so over-worked his strength that he could not resist the disease. 

But the saddest tragedy of the last five years came in the calling 
av/ay of both Saim Polk and his wife within eighteen days of each 
other. Mrs. Polk was taken suddenly ill and was taken to Mercer 
Hospital on Dec. 15, 1922. An operation revealed a cancerous condi- 
tion that was hopeless. She lingered for five days, and was then laid 
to rest at West Nottingham, Pa., their former parish. Sam seemed 
to bear up wonderfully well, but he had three funerals in succession. 
He had returned from a dinner at one of his parishioners, when his 
sister-in-law found him semi-conscious in his own kitchen. He never 
regained consciousness and died on Jan. 7, 1923. Interment at West 
Nottingham, Pa. These two deaths strike us most heavily, because 
both were always at our re-unions and the manse at Lawrenceville was 
a veritable "house by the side of the road" to the Class of '90, as tliey 
v^ended their way back to Princeton. Sam was described by one, as 
"the most loved man in New Brunswick Presbytery." 

But the list is not complete yet. For what brings us soitow as 
well as the death of classmates, is the death of their helpmates, who 
have so faithfully stood by them all these years. Besides Mrs. Polk, 
the following mistresses of the home have crossed the river since last 
we met. Mrs. Gibbons left an unbroken family circle on Oct. 2, 1928. 
In 1920, she passed thro an operation for tumor on the spine. Not 
fully restored to health, she, nevertheless, was able to do much good 
work with her husband, especially among the college girls at State 
College, Pa. Paralysis was setting in, and she consented to another 
operation in the University Hospital in Phila. Gibbons and his daugh- 
ter gave a blood transfusion, but all in vain. Whitaker conducted the 
last sei-vices, much to the comfort of our dear brother, and the good 
wife was laid to rest at Oaklands, Westchester, Pa., by the side of 
her father and mother "in the sunset hour." 

Mrs. Paton died Jan. 9, 1924 in her Hartford home after nine 
months of illness, the details of which we have not yet learned. 

And only a few weeks ago, word came that Warne had been called 
to part with his companion. On March 17, she was taken to a hospital 
in Zanesville, Ohio, where two married daughters were living. On 
March 31, she was operated on for appendicit's, but peritonitis set in, 
and the end came on Apr. 6. She was taken back to her old home for 
burial, while loved ones wait "not as those that have no hope", but 

Trompen has lost his second son, Harry, who passed away on 
Decoration Day, 1920 in his 30th year. McLeod's oldest boy has also 
"gone "home." There may have been other deaths in the Class circle, 
of which we have not yet heard. We can only commend all the sor- 
rowing hearts to the God of all comfort, assuring each one that the 
Class of 90 enters into their sorrows with more than formal feeling, 
with downright brotherly sympathy and love. 

But shadows soon give way to sunshine. And the bells we hear 
are not all tolling bells. Some are wedding be'ls. Now, let the Band 
strike up "The Campbells are coming." For, sure enough, here they 
are; R. J. with his bride, and McMillan who was born near enough to 
Scotland to appdeciate the name, taking unto himself a Campbell. 
Both swear, by heaven and earth, that they have the salt of the earth, 
in wives, and, just to preserve peace, let no man dispute the claim. 
There is enough dust in the air without any further scraps. 

But the children are stepping foi"ward at a commendable pace. 
Within the last five years, Adams, Carrington, Cummings, Gibbons. 
Mrs. Jessup, Moore, Paton and Warne, have all added a son-in-law or 
daughter-in-law to their circle. Long life nnd the real thing in hap- 
piness to each and every one( of them. Some of the rest of us are 

merely watching developnients, at times an interesting, and then again 
a worrisome pastime. 

Up to the time of writing, only Gardner and Hugh Miller have 
held out against all the charms of the fair sex. They vow eternal celi- 
bacy, "tho the heavens fall." If Dunnie were here, he would jolt them 
with a continuation of the quotation ad libitum enlivened with sugge.s- 
tions of his thrilling ladder story. 

The Class of 90 has not been afraid of innovations; one of which — 
yea, two of which — you see here to-night, viz, having our good wives 
and lady friends at our Class Dinners, and, for the first time in our 
history, inviting to join us the men who did not graduate with us, but 
who were with us for a year or so. As to the ladies, we can never say 
enough. "All we are and all we hope to be" — (but then, Dunlap is not 
here and the quotation fails for words again. We can only say, that 
life would have been one long jazz but for the steady hand and word 
that broke up the syncopated music and brought harmony and real 
vhythm into existence. As far as we have heard, none have supplanted 
their husbands, and none have turned modernists. Some dr've autos, 
while others still drive — their husbands. Some raise children and 
others raise the — roof! pardon me. But with all their idiosyncrasies, 
they know how to make good men, and it is an honor due them that we 
have them with us to-night. Some even gracefully vdeld the gavel, as 
does Mrs. Fenwick Fraser in the President's chair of the Ohio Synodi- 
cal Missionary Society. And some handle as efficiently the by no 
means inferior task of the pen as does Mrs. Everitt in her position as 
the Secretary of the Penna. Synodical Society, the largest Woman';- 
Missionary Society in our church, Others may have as important 
positions of which we have not heard. We are glad to chronicle this 
much among the honors of the Class. 

But it is a new pleasure to us to-night to have at orr table men 
who did not tarry long enough to carry away a Princeton diploma. 
But we hail them as "mighty good fellows" just the same. Alexander, 
and Matthews are here to speak for themselves. We heard from the 

Alexander is Synodical Supt. of the Synod of Penna. (U. P. 
Church) with home at Crafton, Pa. Allison is student pastor at tiie 
University of Wisconsin. Has just toured the State in the interest of 
a denominational building on the campus, and is inaugurating, as a 
result, a "Paint-Presbyterian-Property" campaign, as he found so 
many Presb>i;erian churches, needing painting. He says, he thinki 
more of his job every year and would not change it for any othei- 
field. Barackman is pastor of the First U. P. Church of West Nc^\- 
York, N. J. Bishop is in Evangelistic work, with headquarters in 
Phila. at 130 S. 56th St. Has had fine success along this line. Gulick 

is a retired Congregational clergyman living at 140 West Pomona St., 
Germantown, Phila. His impaired health forbids his attending such 
functions as these. He sends his greetings, especially to Dr. Erdman, 
who was his neighbor; in that city. Heuver has written twice from 
Rockford, 111., 90 miles west of Chicago. He has two children, se- 
cured a Ph. D. from the University of Chicago, and was last year 
Moderator of the Synod of Illinois. Hudnut, as you know, is pastor 
of the large and influential church at Youngstown, Ohio, and is a 
member of our Board of Foreign Missions. He not long since went, 
in their behalf, to visit our stations in Africa. Hudnut has one son 
studying for the ministry, now in Western Seminary. His other son 
is a Sophomore in the University here. He has one married daughter. 
Jlis message is "better days ahead; work on." Macbeth is pastor of 
St. Paul's Presbyterian Church in Vancouver, B. C. He has developed 
into quite a writer of note, his letter-head announcing seven or eight 
books he has written. Is a leader in Canadian Presbyterianism. Mat- 
thews has risen to the Bishopric of the Diocese of New Jersey with 
home in Princeton on Bayard Lane. Penrose is President of Whitman 
College, in Walla Walla. Wash. Within the past two months, he has 
practically lost his eyesight, and can no longer recognize things or 
persons. He left us to attend the Yale Divinity School. Phillips is 
pastor of the Fir^t A. R. Pres. Church, Charlotte, N. C. 

No word has come from Coffin, Hays, Lippincott, or Twinem. Nor 
v/as any letter returned, altho so requested by the postmaster of the 
place addressed. Hays' address is unknown. He went into army as 
a chaplain. Latimer and Ricketts have died. 

But we must not forget our Auxiliary Roll, another feature of our 
Class history. This is made up of all the families of our deceased 
firothers. We still claim relationship to them, and keep them in our 
hearts and minds. The orphaned ones have first claim. Phraner's 
two boys are doing well. Wilson is Sec-Treas., and a Director of 
Baker and Williams' Bonded and Free Warehouses in New York City. 
He is an elder in the Central Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn, of 
which Dr. John F. Carson is pastor. He has a boy one year old. Stan- 
ley is one of the editors of the New York Bureau, editing the finan- 
cial and foreign exchange page of that paper. He has two girls and 
a boy. 

McCuish's children are living as follows: Helen is taking a nurse's 
course in the Pre.sbyterian Hospital of Chicago; John B. Jr., is a Fresh- 
man in Washburn College, Topeka, Kas., preparing for the Foreign 
Mission field; Anna is in the Newton, Kas. High school where she is 
living with her aunt, who camel to take care of the children after the 
. death of their parents. 


Rebeka Polk was married last June to Paul C. Dietz, once a 
Master in the Lawrenceville School, now teaching in the Principia in 
St. Louis, as professor of physics. James married Belle Barnes of 
Atlanta, who "contains in her one tiny personality ALL the feminine 
perfections — beauty, sweetness of character, industry and real old- 
fashioned goodness." Happily married, all of them. 

The children of Jessup are reported as follows: Theodosia, a Vas- 
sar graduate, went as a Red Cross aid with the British Forces in their 
operations during the war in Palestine. In Jerusalem, she met the 
Rev. Edward Thompson, a British Chaplain from India. They were 
married in Beirut, he is now professor of Bengalee literature and 
language in Oxford University, England. Elizabeth, a graduate of 
Smith, married Kingsley Blake, a doctor with an important position 
in the radium department of St. Luke's Hospital, N. Y. Helen is in 
a sanitarium, recovering from over-work. She was published in the 
Yale list of American Junior poets. Faith graduates from Vassar this 
year, and with her younger sister, and step-mother, go to Syria for 
a year. 

Of the others, we are sorry to be able to report only partially, as 
we have not been able as yet to get any replies from Mrs, Annin, Mrs. 
Baskerville, Mrs. Hedges, nor Mrs. Rankin. Second letters were sent, 
with return request. No letters came back, except one for Mrs. 
Heaney, nor did any further word come from these sisters. Mrs. Allen 
ngain graces our presence to-night, and can speak for her awn two 
boys. Mrs. Erskine is living at Pine Bush, N. Y., with her brother, is 
in poor health, but busy in mission and church work. Mrs. Mason is 
living at 1329 E. 54th St., Chicago, where they have been four years 
\\-hlle Robert was in the University of Chicago. He graduates thi.^ 
June. He also entered Rush Medical College in the Fall, has had 
almost three-quarters year of work and study along the line of his 
profession. He is much interested in church work, is a deacon in the 
Hyde Park Presibyterian Church, and active in the Young People's 
Work. He has many of his sainted father's sterling qualities. Her 
health is not the ibest and she may have to move from the city. 

Mrs. Oates is the house-mother of 34 young ladies in a Seminary 
for Girls at Tai-rytown, N. Y. Robert has been tunnel-building out 
in California with her brother, an engineer. He is in love with the 

Mrs. Williams also has a position with a school, being Executive 
Secretary of the Riverdale Country School, at Riverdale-on-the-Hud- 
son. She sends best greetings to all. 

You no doubt thought us super-modern when we asked about your 
autos. To be strictly up-to-date, we should have asked about your 


radios. But the auto question revealed what we expected to find, viz, 
about every kind of car under the shining; sun, with the Ford in the 
lead iby all odds. Frank Hyatt Smith is authority for saying that the 
only car mentioned in the Bible is where David came to the Ford. 
His answer to said, question was: "I despise the murderers." And a 
Mason at that, sworn to love, etc. We think our brother from Canada, 
R. J. Campbell, deserves the prize for nerve-running trips. For on 
only a few days training, he has driven his new McLaughlin car here 
safe and sound. Let him tell his own experiences. But they are no 
longer luxuries, they are necessities now to every wide-awake worker. 
It was no simall jaunt for your Secretary to drive here today in one 
run of 215 miles. His nerves are on edge yet, and not even the tran- 
quility of a scene like this can calm, them down seemingly. 
But a hasty glance at the returns: 

ADAMS — Has changed to the Minnetonka North Shore group of 
three churches with address at Maple Plain, Minn. One son was 
onarried, and two grandchildren bom, in the. last five years. 

BANNERMAN — Made an address at Lincoln University Com- 
mencement this year. 

HENRY CAMPBELL — Has been for two years the Pacific Coast 
Secretary for Men's Work, with office at 278 Post St., San Francisco, 
and home at San Jose. Likes his work, and is on the road a good 
deal of the time. Is driving his third Buick car. 

R. J. CAMPBELL — Has been in evangelistic work, with good suc- 
cess. Located at Lochnaw Cottage, Poplar Plains Crescent, Toronto, 
Canada. Four months tour of the States last year. 

CARSON — Celebrated his 25th anniversary as pastor of Grace 
Church, Brooklyn, recently. Has paid off $57,000 of debt in sixteen 
years. 676 members. Fifth in Presbytery in benevolences and 
third, in gifts to the Boards. Church gave him an anniversary gift 
of $1300. His wife has ibeen an invalid for 25 years and for sixteen 
of them has not stood on her feet, yet is brave and cheerful. Her 
poem, "My Patch of Blue" has reached 7,000 copies sold, most of the 
proceeds of which she has given to missionary causes. 

CUMMINGS— Is Stated Clerk of Synod of Baltimore and Perma- 
nent Clerk of the Preslbytery of Washington City. 

DOUGHTY — ^Has a work very encouraging in Hoboken, N. J., 
with a fine group of young people developing. 

DUNLAP — Says nothing about himself except to greet us in his 
old cordial way. He is in business as a traveling salesman for his 
brother's firm in N. Y., and lives at 5264 Seebaldt St., Detroit, Mich. 


EDDY — Has just resided charge at Wyoming, N. J. Would like 
field within 100 miles of N. Y. 

EVERITT— Still in the college town, of Lewisburg, Pa., with 150 
Presbyterian students in Bucknell University to look after and a pro- 
posed Presbyterian Orphanage and Home for Convalescent Children 
on his mind made possible by, the gift of a farm near that place by 
one of his parishioners. The whole matter is very much in embryo 
as yet, but plans are being laid to merge the Pre.sibyteries of Central 
Penna. in support of the movement. There is only one Presbyterian 
Orphanage anywhere east of Ohio, the one in Phila., and that not 
under any ecclesiastical control whatever. The Lewisburg site is ideal, 
and if you have rich parishioners interested in the care of helpless 
children, here is your chance. 

JOHNSON, A. F. — District Missionary to the Sioux Indians, in 
the Dakotas and Montana. Itinerates a good deal. Speaks the 
Dakota Indian language so fluently, that he is constantly consulted by 
them in their many problems. In good health. His son, Julius Ken- 
neth (called by the Indians, "Maga Ska," or "White Swan") graduated 
this year from Hastings College, Neb. Fine, dependable boy, un- 
decided as to career. 

LEVINGOOD — Reports a sick wife, and one son teaching in 
Princeton University. 

HUGH MILLER — Had two scratches on his reply: (1) as to com- 
ing, "very uncertain," (2) auto: "Chevrolet". Nothing else. Reminds 
us of the minister's blanks "additions — none; losses — none; benevo- 
lences — none. Pray for us that we may hold our own." Hugh lives 
near Philipsburg, N. J. 

MOORE — By all odds the best correspondent in the Class, altho 
the furthest away. Four letters are here for you, if you have time to 
read theim. He is much disturbed over the theological situation on 
the foreign field. Has two sons out in Japan teaching now, and two 
other children with him. He wants us to especially know that he has 
nine children and is even with Parker. John got a D. D. from David- 
son College, when home the last time on furlough, and weighs over 
200 lbs. No special connection between the two facts. You might 
think the increase due to swelled head. He appreciates deeply the 
interest of the Class in him and his boys. As you know, John is the 
only one of the Class to name boys after his classmates, viz. Mason 
and Erskine, and so the Class sent him $135 five years ago to help on 
the education of those boys. This year, $175 has been raised for him 
from the Class or our churches which goes toward his gospel auto. 

NELSON — Is in Home Mission work as Stated Supply of the Los 
Alamos church, Cal., and lives in beautiful Santa Barbara. He visits 
the oil fields also. 


PARKER— still has the edge on John Moore. Altho the same 
T.umber of children— nine— Parker has three grandchildren against 
Moore's two. And Parker leads us all in sons on the mission field, 
having three in China, one in India, one in Switzerland, two in Ten- 
nessee, and two in Park College. Just think of that family mail— how- 
interesting. He changed to Conneautville, Pa., in 1923. 

PATON— Mourns the death of his wife (second) recently. His 
only child, Suvia Lanice, was married on Oct. 11, 1924, to Mr. Whitte- 
more, a lawyer ofi Boston. He was called to the chair of Old Testa- 
ment in Rochester Seminary but declined. 

REMINGTON — Declined a call to Mass.,' and is settled at Ivory- 
ton, Conn., over a Congregational church. Your Secretary and wife 
visited him in his summer home at Remcroft, N. H., last summer, with 
a mountain-top vista that can not be beaten. Do not pass him by, if 
you ever tour New England. 

FRANK HYATT SMITH— Retired, at his old home in Williams- 
ville, N. Y. "Preach and lecture, look complacently on the cloth, don't 
wear a Fosdick sweater, and young at 68." "Wife broke down in 
1922, regained her health here, where no sisters annoy; I unload ser- 
mons where they like roast beef and not veal." Harpers asked him 
for a novel — honors enough. 

TROMPEN— For twelve years the Congregational State Worker 
for Colorado. Now serving a church as Stated Supply. 

VOORHIES — ^Lately moved to Edington where Polk once was. 

WHITAKER— Is stated Supply over the M. Y. Smith Memorial 
Church near Phila., a growing field and his, the only Protestant church 

Theologically, we have no heretics — altho two did sign the Aulburn 
Affirmation. Denominationally, we have 29 listed as in the Presbyter- 
ian Church, North: two (McLean and Moore) in the Presbyterian 
Church, South: One (Anderson) in Independent Presbyterian Church; 
two (R. J. Campbell and Lynn) in the Canadian Presbyterian Church; 
four (Bryant, Paton, Remington and Trompen) in the Congregational 
Church; and two (Doughty and Jungeblut) in the Reformed Church. 

106 children are reported, six of whom are on the foreign field. 
Incomplete reports show 22 grandchildren and a goodly number headed 
for the ministry. 

We regret that postals, letters and printer's ink failed to get any 
i-eply from the following: Bull, Frank L. Eraser, Jungeblut, McGin- 
ness or Neson. 

The problems just ahead of us are not those of old age and "an- 
cient ruins," if we can think so. Pity tis, tis true, that the jingle 
.that catches us at times is the following: 


"It's not what you'd do with a million, 
If riches should e'er be your lot; 
But what are you doing at present 
With the dollar and the quarter you've got." 
But who should worry, with a new Pension Plan sure to be put 
ever. Sixty-five never seemed- so far away to some as it does now. 

The problem before us is not the age-long scientific one. G. K. 
Chesterton in his recent book, on St. Francis of Assisi, says: "a man 
in Voltaire's time did not know what miracle he would next have to 
throw up. A man -in our day does not know what miracle he will next 
have to swallow." Trust God to reconcile all differences and bring His 
book thro the fires. 

The problem is the one we have always faced: how to make real 
men and women out of the materials given to us by a kind Provi- 
dence. Todays challenge is something more than that of character- 
building. It is even more than that of a saved-from-hell generation. 
It is making of men worth-while, with qualities for leadership and 
spiritual impression. 

We can close with no better words than those of J. G. Holland: 
"Wanted: Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog. 

In public duty, and in private thinking." 
That's our job and let's to it, with the remaining years at our 
command. For the summons may come all too soon, with our task 
but just begim. 

"Work while it is day; for the night cometh, when no man can 

And whoever falls before we meet again, may Death be to them 
"That golden key 

That opens the Palace of Eternity" 
And, with the Master at hand, may the latch turn easy, and it be said 
of that one, "He faltered not, but went in." 

Frank B. Everitt, 



ADAMS — Letter heading: "Community Churches, Crystal Bay, 
Long Lake, Maple Plain, Minn." Have been in new field a year and 
five months. A lovely manse, with modern comforts,, one of the best. 
Three church buildings, one here and two others, five miles off, the 
latter being less than three^ miles apart. The field is an isosceles tri- 
angle. My extreme distances are not over nine miles the longest way. 
The roads are Minnesota's best, concrete and bithulitic pavement, tar- 


via and gravel, kept perfectly clear all winter by power plows. Tlie 
farms and market gardens are so thick that the roads are like streets. 
A fine creamery here that can make half a ton of hutter at a churn- 
ing, and 1500 gallons of ice cream, a day at the same time. Did it 
last summer. Between 300 and 400 families connected with my 
churehes. It is hard in spots, discouraging sometimes, interesting 
mostly, and worth-while all the time. Have decided to go into the 
new Pension Plan, even if I have to pay the whole 10% myself." 

ANDERSON — "My work in Savannah has developed beyond my 
expectations. The congregations have been growing, and the work 
developing along constructive lines. Just now we are planning to 
consti'uct a new $25,000 mission building in the eastern section of the 
city, and have received the gift of some beautiful lots in the western 
section for amission. We are supporting a number of missionaries in 
China and Korea In, China, we have completed the erection of ten 
churches and manses in Kashing Province, and our women have com- 
pleted a memorial to one of our members who died in Chun-ju. I 
have been hoping to publish a volume of sermons and a volume of 
Sei-vices of Praise, interpreting the life of our Lord in song. Per- 
haps there have never been any services held in this city that have 
attracted more general attention and been more beneficial from an 
evangelical standpoint." Anderson has supplied the Park St. Church, 
Boston, the past three summers and preached this year the Baccalau- 
reate at Davidson College. 

BISHOP — Children all married, but one. Have second wife. Five 
children and five grandchildren. Last pastorate. Central Church, Port- 
land, Oregon 1916-1918. Since then, engaged in evangelistic work. 
Expect to re-enter pastorate if the way be clear. 

BRYANT — Wrote his letter from a -hospital bed as follows: "Am 
dressed today for first time after illness from pneumonia. Expect to 
preach for Paterson on May 24 and June 14. For three and a half 
years, I have been an "honest-to-goodness" newspaper man. I am 
the official news-camera-man for the Pawtucket Daily Evening News. 
I also edit a Monday morning column each week, called "Echoes from 
the Pulpit." I cover for news one section of the city and an adjoin- 
ing district. Am the Librarian of the paper, listing and filing cuts. 
The work is very interesting and I receive an excellent salary for it. 
I prefer a parish, and, if the way opens, will take one again. I now 
preach about half the time." 

FENWICK FRASER— "They have made me Stated Clerk of Ma- 
honing Presbytery. I have been in it for thirteen years. Came near 
getting into the necrological report last year (1922). Was driving 
my new Buick coupe, when I collided with a street car. Splinters cut 
my face, one a quarter of an inch from my eye. Damage to car, $300. ' 


C'-ommissioner this year to G. A. for fifth or sixth time. Preach in 
Geneva gown, made in Exeter, Eng., and have vested choir. Presided 
at Synod and introduced Campbell Morgan. Better health than for a 
long- time. Gardening, my tonic. Troubled some with K. K. K., but 
hope the fever is going down. 

GIBBONS — With pardonable pride,writes of hi? daughter Frances' 
trip around the world: "A year ago, she went to India to help her 
sister Eleanor w^ho was breaking under the strain of being left alone 
in the station by death and furloughs. She has returned 30 lbs. 
heavier than ever. • She came back via the Pacific, thus circling the 
globe. Since she has returned, she has been much in demand for mis- 
sionary addresses. It has been a wonderful year for her, more valu- 
able than a postgraduate course. She can never be provincial in her 
thinking and her sympathies again." 

LYNN — Truly had a bitter disappointment. He has not been 
>back since he graduated and, with Mrs. Lynn, was surely counting on 
this year's visit. "Alas! about six weeks ago, Mrs. Lynn scalded her 
limib very seriously and the Dr. says, it will take about ten weeks to 
heal. I retired from the pastorate a little over a year ago, and put in 
about one quarter of my time supplying. My first pastorate was in 
Pottsville, Pa., for four years; second, in Bergen, N. Y. for 13 years; 
and my last, in Baden, Canada, for 14 years. I am in my 76th year 
and have had only three weeks in that time when I was out of my 
pulpit. The Lord has been very gracious to us as a family. My 
daughter has Ibeen in charge of a City Mission in Oshawa and seems 
to enjoy the work." 

MACBETH — .From Vancouver, B. C, writes: "Things are in some 
confusion in the churches of Canada. I have had a certain degree of 
leadership in the struggle to continue our Presbyterian Church, We 
are winning in that regard, even though some leave us for the Modern- 
istic merger. I stand for the Princeton theology and the Standards, 
at work, 'both at home and abroad." 

From his letter-heading, we see that Macbeth has done a good 
deal of publishing, eight books being listed of which he is the author. 
He was with us only in Junior year. 

McLEAN — Writes of Flordia: "We have a great State, and it is 
now the most prosperous State in the Union. People are crowding 
into it from all parts of the world. I have been very busy wih churcii 
work ever since coming into the State. I am a delegate to the G. A. 
meeting in Lexington, Ky. ^Hope all the Class are Fundamentalists." 

MATTHEWS — With us one year — Dean of Cathedral, Farbault, 
Minn., 1913-1915; Professor Seabury Divinity School, 1913-1915; 


Bishop of New Jersey, 1915. Settled for life in Princeton. Honors as 
follows: D. D. from Seabury, from Trinity College, Hardford, and 
from Princeton University, S. T. D. from General Theological Semi- 

MOORE — (Here is where the Redactor gets in his work. If it is 
poorly done, charge it up to his Princeton training. From four or 
five letters, personal and otherwise, we glean the following:) 

First of all I want to thank you for the kindnesses, that you have 
shown me who tho in a diflFerent church and far separated from, yovi 
most of the intervening years, seem to have been remembered by you in 
a very special and exceptional manner. I thank you very very much for 
your help in the education of the two boys named for two of the class, 
which was as much of a surprise to me as anything I have ever had 
I think. James Erskine is a Junior at Davidson College this year, and 
we hope will graduate there at 20 and get his M. A. the next year, and 
v/e are trying to hope that he will be willing to come out and teach in 
the Higher Commercial school here where his older bro. Wallace H. is 
expected to come this fall but this is a good way ahead. Mason 
Edwards is at the Green Briar Military school in West Va. (Lewis- 
burg). I do not knoiw when he will graduate there, but I suppose in 
the course of time. My' hope is that both these boys may show their 
appreciation of your help thru life. 

Once more it is my very pleasant duty to thank you for still an- 
other lift toward a Ford car. Entire honesty compels me to say that 
this was a complete surprise to me also. I sent to Everitt, some of 
the sheets of a sort of a circular letter that I was sending to some 70 
or 80 churches selected by our Com. on Stewardship, and feeling that 
you might like some of your wealthy parishioners to help along tlie 
good work, since we are one church here in Japan, any way. But 1 
(lid not for a moment suppose that you would make the effort to raise 
any large sum among yourselves. I have received and have deposited 
here the sum of one hundred and eighty eight Yen, and it is safe 
against the day when I can get the full amount and get the new Ford., 

May I say that I propose to carry the Gospel to every soul in this. 
our exclusive field. May I say that already I have carried the Gospel 
to practically every school! We have I think three small schools on 
one of the Islands of this field and some three or is it four where we 
have not been able to get, as it is right up among the Mts. and it 
would take an entire day in some cases to reach say sixty or seventy 
children. Of course we tell the old old story, and we give out simple 
tracts, and teach them the songs, that if properly understood, will lead 
to Salvation, and we have selected the most intelligible of all the 
songs we know. 

Of Moderism, he writes: "I do wish that you could get ready for 


a real fig-lit. For I believe that it is coming. I have felt it more than 
ever for the last foui- or five years. I think that Fosdick and his crowd 
v.ill stop at nothing'. We are all mixed up here, and while we have 
our Missions in separate organizations, there can not be the least 
doubt that the Liberals are strong enough now to show their hand, 
and it is not a question of "live and let live," but it has come to this, 
either get rid of these rats that are gnawing the bottbmi out of the 
ship, or we sink with them. There can be no middle ground. My 
own forecast is, that unless you at home stiffen up a bit, there will be 
nothing to show for your missionary efforts." 

"As Dr. Patton said: 'we are not floating. We know where we are 
headed, and we are making for the port. We have not all the truth, 
but what we do have, is the truth, and further search is what we need. 
NOT a denial of what we have'!" 

Of health: "except for the tremendous attack of neuralgia that 
Mrs. Moore had, we are as well now as we could wish to be, and tho 
the muscles tire a good deal quicker than they used to do, we are able 
to have four or five meetings a day, when we can get out." 

Of results: "I have not had the super abounding number of results 
that every young missionary longs and works and prays for. There 
have been some, and we thank God and take courage. For there is a 
wide field, and many adversaries, and we find encouragement enough to 
keep as busy as can be." 

"When I am tired, I like to sit and day-dream of how fine it will 
be to see you and yours in 1930. I honestly plan to spend more time 
with the classmates if they will allow me — to visit the churches for 
£?, few weeks before going South. In the fall of 1930, I plan to take 
Mason Edwards, named after Prinieton's gi'eat President, all the way 
from N. C. to Princeton to see the old college give Yale the biggest 
trouncing she ever had." 

Note — Moore's letters are mighty interestmg, and the Secretary 
will be glad to pass them on, upon request, as space here forbids 
more quotations. He plans to be with us in 1930. 

MOOREHEAD— With us only in Junior year, writes from Ban- 
bridge, Co. Down, N. Ireland: "It is good to hear from you. What an 
attractive prospect, foregathering with my old Princeton classmates. 
But only a prospect, for distance and the calls of duty make attendance 
impossible. I shall be around the old Rabbi's house in thought and 
may catch heai-tening glimpses of the proceedings. Myself, a wife 
who takes good care of me, and a daughter who is lecturer in French 
at Queen's University, Belfast, make up the family circle. I have 
been in the ministry of the Irish Presbyterian Church all these years 
and have sought to the best of my ability to keep the eld blue ban- 
ner of Princeton unfurled. By paying special attention to the train- 


ing of the young, I have the gratifying record of seeing all in the 
district over fourteen years of age enrolled in full communion and lead- 
ing worthy lives. The roots of the faith w^ere badly shaken before 
and after the M^ar, but life is now practically normal again. I shall 
be delighted if any of the classmates who come to Wembley during 
the summer give me a call." 

FRANK HYATT SMITH— "I came here for my wife's health in 
1923. I am on a deligh.tful place in a house 100 years old. We lived 
here before and I write and fill pulpits in the region about here. Am 
happy and contented and feel like Elijah when he dropped his mantle. 
1 hope if you come this way, you will stop to see me. I don't get any 
younger but am spry at 66. Lost a brother who brought me up and 
my guide and counsellor and defender for fifty years. A big loss. 
But we are all moving on and Jerusalem looks good to me." 

TROMPEN — "I had a sort of a vague hope that there might be 
a possibility of being at the Re-union this year, but know now that it 
will bel impossible. My son, Nicholas, still lives in Brooklyn, N. Y., 
and is in the employ of the Brooklyn Edison Co. His son, Milton J. 
Trompen, was defeated in a Mrrestling match at Princeton not long 
ago. He is now a student at the Broolclyn Polytechnic. He may be 
the first grandson of the Class of '90. My second son, Harry, died 
five years ago. Twelve years, I was State Worker for the Congrega- 
tional Churches of Colorado. Since the death of our son, I have been 
home. At present, I am supplying a church twelve miles from Denver. 
We have a Dodge car, and in church work, make over 1000 miles every 
month. Added 44 members last year. We are hoping and planning 
to be at the next Re-union. So put our names do"wn." 

Thinking you would all be especially interested in Will Jessup, 
who died in Beirut, on Dec. 12, 1920, we quote from his two last let- 
ters, and add the Minute of the/ Board on his life and death. 

From his letter of April 6, 1920, we read, "I was entitled to a 
year's furlough after nearly ten years of service in Syria. I had four 
and a half months in America, and have had five months here to rest 
after the hardest experiences of my life. Really I cannot describe to 
you these years. We were suspected of political propaganda by the 
Turks, who said our Relief Work was simply to win favor with the 
people of Syria to love America and to hate the Turks. We had no 
such designs, but the result of the work was as they described it. 

When we had done all we could for the people with $50,000 per 
month and had given all our small income could possibly spare, we 
had to do as the Levite did, pass by in seeming indifference at times 
where the people were dying on the streets of hunger and typhus and 


exposure. Oh, it was di-eadful, I hate to bring up these scenes. The 
nerve tension was too much to ibear and keep strong. 

Everything is kept hung in suspense here in Syria even now. 
France occupies this part of Syria and has her airplanes, tanks, 
armored cars, artillery and foot and horse here in an increasing: 
strength. There is a great feeling of opposition to France." 

His letter of July 15, 1920, was written from his summer home, 
called "The Heights" at Aaleih, Lebanon, Syria: "How I wish John 
Moore vv^ould return to Japan via Syria. Haw long before some class- 
mate makes a trip to Palestine and makes me a visit! Here I am on 
a spur of Lebanon in a stone cottage belonging to me where I spend 
the summer. Beirut and the plain and seashore lie ten miles away 
and 2700 ft. below me. When the sun sets behind Cyprus, we can see 
it from our porch. There is a nice young growth of oak and ilex anil 
pines on my lot and on the top of the hill I have a tennis court. My 
duties of Stated Clerk of the Mission have been returned to me and 
I have a good jo(b to attend to once more. We are hoping for an 
advance in our work and are occupying new parts. We sadly need 
more ordained men. The political situation is going from bad to 
worse. How it will end is impossible to forecast." 

Minute of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church. 

in the U. S. A., December 20, 1921, as presented 

by Dr. Stanley White 

Dr. Jessup was ordained in May, 1890, by the Presbytery of New 
Brunswick, Dr, James McCosh giving him the charge. He continued 
to maintain his relationships with the American Presbyterian Churcn 
and at the time of his death was a member of the Lackawanna Presby- 
tery. Dr. Jessup went to Syria as a regularly appointed missionary 
to represent the Board of Foreign Missions in November, 1890. In 
February of 1891 he was assigned to the station at Zahleh where he 
remained until 1915, devoting himself to the educational and evangel- 
istic work of the station. In 1915 he was assigned to Beirut as pro- 
fessor in the theological seminary. Except for the purpose of hi.s 
fhrloughs in 1899, 1908, 1913, and 1919, Dr. Jessup has spent the 
thirty years of his service in Syria. 

His work in Zahleh was' marked by efficiency and unselfishness, 
and even after he left there the influences which he started were 
potent in the upbuilding of the Syrian church. When visiting Zahleh 


in 1919 the writer found Dr. Jessup's name frequently mentioned by 
those whom he had served and who would never forg^et the kindnesses 
which he extended to those who were in need. In 1915 Dr. Jessup 
was transferred to the Beirut Station to take up the task of teaching 
in the theological seminary. His change of work, taking place as it 
did just as the* world was being plunged intO' a turmoil of strife,, the 
Mission found its theological work seriously interrupted. The men of 
Syria were taken into the army and gradually the student body was 
diminished until practically the seminary had to be closed and its 
buildings and esuipment turned over as the headquarters of the relief 
society. Ae the time of Dr. Jessup's death plans were being perfected 
for again opening the seminary and everyone was looking forward with 
eagerness to the new opportunity for training ministers for the ad- 
vancing work of the Syria Mission. The Mission was relying upon 
Dr. Jessup to be the leader in this work particularly in preparing men 
fitted to deal effectively with the Mohammedan problems which have 
come las an outcome of the war. While Dr. Jessup was waiting for 
an opportunity to begin his theological work he became the Secretary 
of the Mission and his work there was marked with the same accuracy 
and thoroughness that always had been characteristic of him. 

For some time Dr. Jessup's health has been threatened by bronchial 
trouble. It seemed to affect his heart. After his last visit to America 
in 1919 he returned with the consciousness that he must work unfler 
certain limitations, physically. However, his strong constitution and 
his inherited physical power warranted his returning, particularly as 
he was" "going home" as he said. The particulars of his final sicknes;^ 
are not known as yet but intimations have come that the trouble which 
caused his death was a development of the sickness which attacked him 
when at home. 

Such is the record of the details of his life. The record of his 
influence cannot be recorded. Born as he was in Syria and the son of 
cultured missionary parents whose lives were woven into the lives of 
the people, Dr. Jessup was peculiarly equipped for his task. By birth 
he was able to/ understand the Syrians' attitude and to see the prob- 
lems from, their point of view. The language was second nature to 
him. The customs were familiar to him and he had no thought except 
that Syria was his home. As he went from station to station he was 
received as a leader and as one whom the people turned to with con- 
fidence and trust.

The Class of 1890 held its fortieth Anniversary Re-union and 
Dinner at the Peacock Inn, 20 Bayard Lane, Princeton, on Monday 
evening. May 5, 1930. 

Nineteen members of the Class were present, or one-half of those 
living, this, being the largest number at any Re-union since our grad- 
uation. These men were Adams, Bannerman, Henry Campbell, R. J. 
Campbell. Cummings, Everitt, Gardner, Gibbons, Levingood, McMillan, 
Hugh Miller, Moore, Parker, Paterson, Thompson, Voorhies, Warne, 
Whitaker, and Wylie. Of the One-Year men, Alexander was again 
present. Long distances were covered in reaching this Re-union, 
Moore and wife coming from Japan, Henry Campbell and wife from 
California, Adams and wife from Minnesota, and R. J. Campbell and 
wife from Canada, all except Moore, driving in by auto. 

Our guests were the following wives of Class members, viz, Mrs. 
Adams, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Bannerman, Mrs. Henry Campbell, Mrs. R. J. 
Campbell, Mrs. Cummings, Mrs. Everitt, Mrs. McMillan, Mrs. Moore. 
Mrs. Gates, Mrs. Parker, Mrs. Paterson, Mrs. Warne, Mrs. Whitaker, 
together with Miss McKinney, and the Rev. M. J. Hyndman, D. D., of 
Philadelphia, Mr. and Mrs. J. Clyde Foose, of Cranbury, Paul and 
Henry Bannerman, and Sidney Levingood, while as guests of honor, we 
again had Dr. and Mrs. Charles R. Erdman. 43 in all were present, 
with forty-one at the Dinner. 

President Whitaker presided. A letter of regret was read from 
the Rev. J. H. Dulles, who was absent thro' illness. The roll was 
called, and each present answered as to any changes within the last 
five years. Dr. Erdman was heard, and then excused to attend other 
Seminary functions. Dr. Hyndman, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. Gates, and Mr. 
I^'oose were also briefly heard. Letters from absentee members were 
read by assignment to those present. The Secretary presented his 
report as Treasurer, showing a balance on hand of $11.30. He was 
instructed to print again a summary of the Class and its work during 
the last five years. Gardner, one of two lone bachelors surviving, 
gave the toast to the ladies. (Hugh Miller is the other.) 

A pleasing innovation this year came in a surprise gift to the 
Class Secretary of a purse of .$30.00, later increased to $54.50, in 
recognition of his forty years of service as Secretary. The presentation 
was made by R. J. Campbell, and warmly seconded by Henry Camp- 
bell, and Wylie. The Secretary responded in deepest feelings of ap- 
preciation, assuring the Class, it had been a real pleasure to serve so 
fine a body of men. 

General discussion of our work followed for a season, after which 
Everitt closed with prayer. 

The next Re-union will be held (D.V.) in 19 35. We record grate- 
ful praise to the giver of all good for the fine spirit and fellowship of 
the gathering and the evidences of good health and continued vigor 
on every side.

Of these children of the Class, 29 bojs have married and 25 girls. 
Twelve boys are still unmarried and 22 girls, while of sixteen, the Sec- 
retary is uncertain. As these are all boys and no statement was given 
as to their families, they are presumably unmarried. 

64 grandchildren are reported, as follows: 23 grandsons, 17 grand- 
daughters and 24 unclassified (sex not given.) Jungeblut leads the 
Class with seventeen grandchildren; Moore, next with eleven. 

The Class has sent nine into the ministry, Baskerville furnishing five, 
Parker three and' Adams, one. Of these, seven are living. Of the 
one-and-two-year men. Hudnut has given two to the ministry, Barack- 
man, one, and Heuver, one. Three girls have become wives of ministers 
or missionai'ies. 

On the foreign mission field are eight representatives, three each 
from Moore's and Parker's family, and two from Gibbons.'. Two are 
on the Home field, and, in the same school, viz.: Arthur Bannermann 
and Kenneth Everitt, at Farm School, N. C. Stephen Penrose is at 
Beirut, Syria, teaching. Wilson Phraner is a member of our Board of 
National Missions. The former Helen McCuish is soon to go as a 
medical missionary with her husband. 

Teaching is the favorite profession, no less than 24, being so 
engaged. Bull leads, with four girls teaching. One has reached the 
dignity of a College President, viz. Rev. Albert G. Parker, Jr., President 
of Hanover College, Ind. Rebekah Gibbons, Sidney Levingood, John 
W. Moore have reached enviable positions in that profession. 

Only two boys and one girl have become physicians. Each boy is 
a namesake of his father, viz. Robert Mason, Jr., and W. S. Voorhies, 
Jr. The girl is Margaret Gibbons, in India. 

Only one has taken up with' the latest profession of aviation, viz. 
Joseph McLean. 

To one, and all, we extend our heartiest good wishes and assure 
them of an undying interest in their future welfare. Fellows, pass this 
on to your children.

good, Mrs. Allen and Paton. Also Dr. and Mrs. Erdman, Dr.

The average age of the Class is now 68, and yet 23, or 60%, re- 
port their health, as good, some as fine, "never better", etc. Nine can 
only say, "fair", while but three are actually in poor health. Four 
tailed to reply as to their physical condition. Heuver has had two 
very serious operations in last four years. Lynn has recovered from 
a foot disease. Mrs. Mason had accident which left her lame. 

Ten have retired, or soon v/ill. Seven are still under retiring age 
(65), and may be hailed as the "kids" of the Class. These are Adams, 
Bryant, R. J. Campbell, Carrington, Everitt, McMillan, and Moore. 
Twelve report themselves, as pensioned. More should be, if they take 
advantage of their newly-given rights. 

The following changes have taken place in the last five years: six 
have retired, viz, Henry Campbell, Carrington, F. W. Fraser, Lynn. 
Warne, and Whitaker. Five have moved to new fields, viz: Eddy to 


Cape Vincent, N. Y., Everitt to Cranbury, N. J., the home of his wife 
in early girlhood, and only five miles from his own boyhood home; 
Parker to Paw Paw, 111., to be nearer his children; Paterson to Wood- 
bury Heights. N. J., suburb of Philadelphia; and Remington to East 
Hampton, Conn. One (Bryant) has gone into the Episcopal Church, 
from the Congregational, and is a full-fledged Rector. However, the 
roving days of the Class seerii to be over, as 27 are still on the same 
job in the same place. 

Lynn is our "Patriarchus Maximus", reaching the golden eighties 
on Nov. 23, of this year. Mark the date, boys, and write him a line. 
Eight have passed the 70 line, but none are near Lynn. 

Twenty-seven enjoy the luxury of a radio, Frank W. Eraser, 
having a Radiola 16, given him by the men of his church. Seven do 
not refresh their souls with such modern means. How they can stand, 
missing "Amos and Andy", deponent saith not. 

Honors have not hurt the Class any in the past decade. Perhaps, 
we are all getting too old for that now. But Anderson was made 
Moderator of the Synod of Georgia, as well as of the Presbytery of 
Savannah, and was sent, as Commissioner, to his General Assembly 
this year. Cummings taught one-term course in the School of Religion 
at Howard University. George still reads his New Testament in Greek 
every morning, and is headed for a Greek professorship * * * some- 
where. Hudnut received an L. L. D. in 1929, and MacBeth was 
similarly honored by the University of Manitoba. McLeod gave the 
Annual Alumni Dinner Address in 1929 and was President last year of 
the Alumni Association. 

Publications are none too numerous by the Class. Gibbons has 
some "in prospect". You recall, his first book, "Black Diamond Men", 
was a great success. McLeod has issued, "Challenge of the Changing". 
Baton tops the list, with his prolific mind, and has published "Early 
Hebrew Ethics", "Ethics of the Hebrew Prophets", "The Evolution 
of Ethics" (edited by E. H. Sneath, Yale University Press, 1927). 
He also has given out the "Summaries of Archaeological News" in the 
American Journal of Archaeology, numerous articles in journals, as 
also articles in the New Standard Bible Dictionary, of 1926, and was 
lecturer at Summer School of Union Theological Seminary, in 192G. 
Penrose has issued a pageant, entitled "How the West was Won". 
MacBeth is a prolific writer, his latest book, being "The Print of the 
Nails", or "The Outside Challenge to the Church". Alexander issued a 
pamphlet for his Mission Board entitled, "Home Missions, the Begin- 
ning of the Enterprise", It was sent to all ministers and elders of the 
U. P. Church. 


There are reported four new sons-in law, and four new daughters- 
in law, thirteen new grandsons, ten new granddaughters. 

Marriages have been as follows; Paton was married, for the 
second time, on July 14, 1925, to Katherine Hazeltine, B.D., graduate 
of the Hartford Seminary, and Professor of Biblical Literature in 
Vassar College, Poughkeepsie, N. Y. Warne did likewise, on July 31, 
1926, taking to wife Miss Nellie M. Wallace, of Trenton, N. J., where 
they are living most happily; while Jungeblut married on April 12, 
1929, Mrs. Louisa Schinkenburger, of Lodi. Cal. Of the children of the 


Class, Jeannette Wylie was married in January, 1926, to W. P. Field, 
of Leatherhead, Surrey, England, where they now reside; John Annin 
was married in June, 19 26, to Miss Alice Henderson, while his sister, 
Pauline, was married the same year in September, to Manuel S. Ga- 
barro, Bolivian Consul in Chicago; Kenneth Lawrence Parker was mar- 
ried on Dec. 22, 1926; Robert Mason on Aug. 23, 1927, to Anna 
Katherine Winne, of Denver, Col.; Helen Gladys Everitt on June 25, 
192 7, to James Clyde Foose, of Altoona, Pa; Donald Dean Parker, on 
Feb. 8, 1928; and Robert Luther Oates, on May 13, 1928, to Patricia 
Louise Careness, of Oakland, Cal. Faith Jessup married in June, 1929, 
George Kahrl, of Princeton; and Kenneth Everitt married on June 7, 
1930, Miss Carolyn Nelson, of Asheville, N. C. 

Others married during last five years but no dates given were: 
Alfred and Catherine Eddy, Frances Gibbons, Jean McLeod and Wallace 
Moore. Penrose had three children married in same time, and added 
three grandchildren. A good start. Macbeth had two daughters mar- 
ried. Parker had six grandchildren born and Moore had eight. 

Deaths saddened the home as well, Levingood losing his beloved 
wife soon after our last reunion in 19 2 5, with a granddaughter as well. 
Mrs. Alexander died on April 10, 1926, Warne's oldest daughter, 
Helen Insley, died. While in Japan, John Moore received the tragic 
news of the sudden death of his boy. Mason, named after our 
classmate. Bob Mason. He was studying in North Carolina, and died 
in an auto accident, when driving alone. Mrs. Barackman has also 
recently died. 


Opportunity was given the Class, if it chose, to express itself on 
some of the pressing questions of the day. Two of the questions bore 
on present' conditions, and four referred to the future. The replies 
may be summarized briefly as fallows: 


I. — What is your candid opinion as to the ordination of women? 

To this, seven gave unqualified assent, while fourteen opposed it, 
five were doubtful, one neutral, and rest non-committal. 

Some oppose it as unscriptural; others, as displacing men; more, 
as unsought by the women themselves. Some are sure, it is coming, 
but see little practical good in it, unless it be in small rural churches. 

Here are some of the comments: "Most of the women who 
qualify are likely to be more embarrassment than real help." "No 
serious danger, but no great success." "Not natural for men to look 
to women for leadership." "When men are Spirit-filled, women will 
not be needed in the ministry, but will be in demand, as mothers in 
Israel, in producing preachers and preparing men of merit for the 

The optimist is heard in this: "One sees a great opportunity for 
women in the ministry in rural parishes." And this: "More able 
women will enter the ministry, because fewer professions are open to 
them, just as Y. W. C. A. leaders are conspicuously more able than 
Y. M. C. A. leaders." "Women rule the church, and ought to be in 


the pulpit. When she is, the pink teas will disappear, and Armageddon 
will come." 

On the other hand, the pessimist is also heard, as follows: "The 
church is sufficiently feminized now." "A sign of the apostasy of the 
modern church." "A blunder, if not worse, from every point of view." 
"She is running the risk of losing much and gaining nothing." 

Of our one-and-two-year men, most seem to favor the proposal. 
One would "leave it to the next generation," and one would "give 
them all to which they aspire." 

II — What is the weak spot in religion today? 

Some think this question is misleading, as there is NO weak spot 
in religion, it is all in the application of religion. 

Seven declare that the weakness can be traced back to lack of faith; 
six point to a failure to apply the principles of religion to the daily 
life; "profession without possession." Five seem to think that the 
weak spot is in our mental attitudes, in a failure "to get hold of the 
real thing;" or in "too much thinking," or "piece-meal thinking;" or 
in "flabby training, craze for philosophy, psycho-analysis, etc,." while 
one frankly says: "the church is out of touch with modern thought 
and life," and so fails. 

Several lay the blame on the leaders of the church, "the wabble 
of would-be noisy leaders;" "leaders who know not the Spirit of 
God." "Modernism in the pulpit." 

Others declare it is the secondary place now assigned to religion; 
"not a major concern, only one of many interests;" and "insistence on 
the irrelevant and immaterial things." One says quite pointedly; 
"super-re-organization, and super-programs to the neglect of her Com- 
mission." Another laments its failure in Christian fellowship and love. 

Other striking replies are: "the church is not converted;" "the 
weakness is in lack of parental • control of children in the home." 
while another points to the lack of the vision of God, and a failure to 
realize the power of prayer." "Division of Protestantism, and eager- 
ness of so many ministers for big salaries." "Too many fearful souls 
in and out of the ministry." "Too many pastors convictionless, passion- 
less, fruitless." "Lack of sacrificial spirit." All of which reasons 
should move us to new searchings of heart. 


I — The future of Prohibition. 

The general tone of the replies is hopeful, even enthusiastically 
so. Only one declares himself opposed to the Eighteenth Amendment 
— "always has been." One looks for some revision — perhaps "a 
happy medium." A warning is heard from the South in "direct action 
by the church as such, in the interest of sumptuary legislation retards 
rather than helps such great social movements." One expresses some 
fear of failure, but, outside of these, the replies are unanimous for the 
continuance of Prohibition, and are full of confidence of ultimate vic- 
tory. Evidently the Digest poll did not reach our Class — nor men 
like us. One says: "it must succeed or our high-powered civilization 
will be wrecked." Another adds: "Retreat means a fifty-year setback." 
Another: "It is an American necessity under present conditions." 


R. J. Campbell declares, the Canadian liquor-control system, a failure. 
Paton hopefully says, "it is bound to win ultimately, like the abolition 
of slavery, but it may take many years and there may be temporary 
setbacks." Remington saw only one drunk in a long trans-continental 
trip, and Adams, only one possibly tipsy driver in his auto trip east to 
the Re-union. He sees success, if we can return to temperance edu- 
cation and emphasis on law obsei-vance. 

Two laconic and characteristic replies are worth noting: Gardner 
says, "good enough, if the decent are not irritated by the press into a 
'kick-me-out-and-have-done-with-it' state of mind." Frank Hyatt Smith 
says: "sure to come, opposed by intelligentsia, modernists, and such. 
Preachers, too many, fear the ridicule of others, ought to put on the 
sword of Gideon, give up the use of cosmetics, and marshmallow 

Let us all be stirred to new endeavor in this great cause by the 
knowledge of such solid support, as this Class gives. 

II — The future of Princeton. 

Upon the future of our beloved Seminary, it may surprise some 
to find almost universal optimism. Only two or three seem to be 
otherwise. Four might be classified as somewhat doubtful, yet "hope- 
fully waiting." Perhaps the worst pessimist oi^ all wrote in this vein: 
"I see no hope, unless they can get free from entangling endowments 
that prevent all teaching of modern thought," while another warning of 
a similar nature comes in "perils of reactionism are as deadly as the 
perils of radicalism." 

Several base their hope on the new regime, and openly say so. 
A few citations may be of interest: "full of promise;" "Princeton has 
advanced steadily through all the years, and will continue to do so;" 
"It shall remain, as at present, our first denominational Seminary, 
orthodox, evangelical, aggressive." "As glorious as its past. It is 
sound, sane and successful." "All right, and will be better than ever." 
"Its rootage going back to 1746, and its steady growth through the 
long decades are prophetic of its splendid future." 

A few other comments may be recommended to the new regime 
for consideration, viz: "not hopeless, if brains are imported and 
temperament excluded;" "Princeton will be O. K., when Presby- 
terians, who are 'bom again' are the teachers." Will depend on the 
trend of religious thought, which has already affected Princeton, but 
I look for no further change;" "My sympathies are with the Funda- 
mentalists, and if it prove true, that the new order of things in Prince- 
ton leans toward Modernism, I shall not hesitate to stand with the 
Fundamentalists;" "I know Erdman and his parents before him, and 
as long as men like him are there, Princeton will send out men who 
know how to preach the real gospel of Jesus Christ." 

Ill — The future of Heliuion, in view of Kadicalisni. 

The attitude of most of the men is, as one expresses it, "I am not 
worrying about it; "the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." 
Several affirm a well-known truth, viz, there has always been Radical- 
ism, and Religion has survived. One says: "Radicalism is not the real 
trouble. It is money, prosperity, vastly increased pleasure." Another: 
"a church filled with the Spirit of God is the antidote." One quotes 
Matt. 15; 3. "Faith will suffer much, but it will come thro the fire- 
testing purified." 

Some of the more serious replies are: "the peril today is in the 
church' masking- its attack under the guise of a gospel which is no 
gospel at all. If the popularly called Naturalism be true, there is 
nothing in Religion that makes it worthy of a future." 

"Radicalism will not overthrow Religion until God is dethroned, 
and the thirst for God is rooted out of the human soul." 

"The very Radicalism of the Radical will ultimately react toward 
true Religion." "The pendulum will swing back." 

A worth-while saying comes from the West: "As a pre-millenari- 
an, I do not look for the church to conquer the world, or save society. 
That is not her job.- She is to bear witness to Jesus Christ. And 
this will be done." 

The following may need a little exegesis from the writers: "The 
future is mighty promising, if Karl Earth will get an apologist of his 
own calibre for a partner." And "Calvin's cruiser rides serene among 
the confectioner's creations of Behaviourism, Hegelianism, and Mary 
Eddy's shallop." 

One of the most suggestive replies is: "Denominationalism seems 
to me to be dying, but I have no fear for the future of religion. Out 
of the present scientific movement, I expect a re-birth of Christianity 
far more significant than the Protestant Reformation." Another, in 
like strain: "I think the tendency will be to base religion on the 
supreme doctrine of love to God and man, and the elimination of much 
dogmatic theology." (shades of Warfleld!) Another: "religion will 
be more liberal." 

IV — The Futui-e of the Church. 

The general feeling is hopeful and assuring. How could it be 
otherwise, in view of the promises of God? "Built on a Rock." What 
a refuge we have in Matt. 16:181 One exultingly shouts: "bright, 
brighter, brightest." 

Nevertheless, an undertone of serious heart-searching is mani- 
fest." "The church represents Jesus indifferently." "Its future de- 
pends on itself." "The church today is having a hard time to convince 
the world, it is a church of the living God. That is not surprising 
when pulpit and pew confound the church with organizations, build- 
ings, machinery of church work, in which the Lord is not interested." 

That changes are coming, most foresee, "surprising changes." 
"But still there will be the church, as it is God-ordained, Christ-headed, 
and founded upon a Rock." "The church must be loyal to fundamen- 
tal truth, yet learn how to adjust itself and teaching to modern con- 
ditions." "In the near future, the church will be more wealthy, more 
worldly, but in the distant future, glorious." 

Among the changes that will come are: "stress will be laid on 
likeness to Christ, rather than creedal conformity." Several empha- 
size the trend toward church unity: "The church moves toward vital 
unity, and the trend toward ^organic union will increase the expression 
of unity and demonstrate to the world the larger values of the church. 
It is still the whitest thing on earth." "Denominations must unite, 
especially Presbyterian and Reformed." "An English prelate recently 
said: 'in one hundred years, there will be no Protestantism' . I think 
he has named too long a time." 


A solid Princetonian says: "The Presbyterian Church has the 
best body of truth of all the churches, and when we preach what 
Christ and our fathers have given us, our church will always be 

Perhaps the most penetrating and concisive answer comes from 
one who thinks, and thinks deeply: "I expect the rise of a new 
church, that will meet the needs and voice the worship of the new age 
more adequately than any of the antiquated existing sects." 

And so we compass all sides of the question, from conservative 
to liberal. Enough to make us all think — and pray. 

V — Optiniisin, or Pessiniisni, as to the future. 

Of course, optimism by 18 to 1, and more! Only one seems fully 
persuaded of dire evils to come, and writes: "How can one be opti- 
mistic, when the family altar has broken down, the Bible is becoming 
an unknown book, and people are declining more and more to take 

One or two style themselves, "meliorists." One says: "an opti- 
mist of the type of Isaiah, (see Is. 28; 16) Another would refer us to 
Luke 12; 32. One calls himself, "rationally optimistic." Another 
says: "I was born an optimist, but I hope, not a fool optimist." Some 
seem to hang around No Man's Land, and are neither. "I am neither, 
as both are extremists. As to the immediate future, we are joy-riding 
in both church and state, with a telephone pole ahead. He who runs 
may read." "The near view makes me pessimistic, but the distant 
view, optimistic." 

While it is refreshing to read, "I am optimistic, except on Mondays 
when I am tired." How very natural! So say we all of us. 


Record must be made of the death of three members of the Class 
since our last metting in 1925. 

Frank L. Fraser. 

This good brother of the far West passed to his reward just before 
our last Re-union, on April 30, 1925, at the age of fifty-nine years. 
Word was not received of it in time for that meeting, or for the print- 
ing of that history. 

Fraser was one of ten Canadians in our Class, being next to the 
youngest, Johnson, who was born six months later. He was a grad- 
uate of Manitoba College in 188 6. He served numerous fields in 
Canada, Minnesota, and California, until he finally settled in Kenne- 
wick, Washington. There, with his preaching, he also engaged in 
fruit ranching, and in educational matters. 

Fraser was well beloved by all, his genial qualities showing them- 
selves in good sportsmanship on the athletic field, while in the Semi- 
nary. He left a widow and two children. Mrs. Fraser divides her 
time between a sister in Long Beach, Cal., and her fruit ranch in Ken- 
newick. The daughter is married, and lives in Oregon, and the son 
is in business in Alaska. 

Charles E. McGinniss, Ph.D. 

McGinniss died in Hoosic Falls, N. Y., on March 30, 1927, at the 
age of 62 years and six months. He had had some heart trouble for 
several years, diagnosed as enlargement of the .heart, and the end 
came suddenly. 

McGinniss was born in Joy, 111., and graduated from Princeton 
University in 1887. He was ordained by the Presbytery of Troy on 
April 22, 189 0. His first work was as Assistant Pastor in the Lansing- 
burgh Church of Troy, of which he later became pastor in September, 
1891. From 1899 to 1913, he served as pastor at Whitehall, N. Y., 
and from 1914 until- his death, he was pastor at Hoosic Falls. His 
entire ministry, therefore, was spent in the one Presbytery of Troy. 

Many years ago, after the death of his daughter, his wife lost her 
mind, and his care of her was most devoted and tender. She is now 
in the Sanitarium at Danbury, Conn., well provided for by his will, 
with such luxuries as a radio, and a good automobile, which she en- 
joys very much. The Manufacturers National Bank of Hoosic Falls 
is in charge of her estate, while her sister-in-law, Mrs. Helen B. Judson, 
looks after her personal needs and comforts. No children survive. 

McGinness received the degree of Ph.D., from the University of 
New York in 189 2. He lies buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, of Troy. 

Robert H. Carson. 

Carson was one of our youngest members, of winsome personality 
and brilliant mind. The Stated Clerk of his Presbytery, the Brooklyn- 
Nassau, says, he was the "best loved man in the presbytery." 

His going was a great shock to all. His health had not been 
good for some time, due to prostate trouble, but in June, 1928, he 
was able to visit his brothers and sisters in Ireland. On his arrival 
there, he had to go to a hospital, but recovered sufficiently to make 
an early return home. In October 'of that year, he was operated upon, 
which operation seemed completely successful and he resumed his 
work. This was probably a wrong step, as he had not sufficiently re- 
covered. For he soon had to go to the hospital again. His strength 
there seemed to gradually ebb away, influenza and pleurisy set in and 
on July 25, 1929, he died. 

His wife had died March 17, 1929. One son, Donald Newlin, sur- 
vives. He is now 27 years old, lives in Brooklyn, and was married on 
June 14, of this year, to Marie Elizabeth Cornwall. 

Our sympathy goes out to all these sorrowing circles, and we 
pray God's richest and abiding comfort to be wi h them all in this 
hour of their deepest need.

In this, the Secretary will depart from his custom hitherto, and 
give the name. He thought that the other answers would be of greater 
advantage if separated from any questions or suspicions of unorthodoxy. 
All the replies are kept on file, and will be available for any that may 
have a personal interest in them. 

But these final messages of the Questionnaire are very personal, 
and we are glad to attach the sender's name to each. 

ANDERSON — Come South, young man. 

BULL — Greetings to all. I rejoice with rejoicing and weep with 
weeping. I Timothy 6; 20. 

R. J. CAMPBELL — Thy work is His. He'll reward to the end. 
Work with might and main. He will do the same. 

CUMMINGS — I hope the closing days of life of each one may be 
the best. 

DOUGHTY — A long life and continued prosperity, and the love of 
God and peace and contentment in life for every member of the old 
Class is my hearty wish. 

EDDY — 2 Thessalonians 3; 16. 

F. W. FRASER^Toil on, faint not! 

GARDNER — Goodwill and good wishes. 

JOHNSON — I am most grateful for the noble personnel of '90 and 
their good judgment in electing their Class Secretary. It is the gen- 
uineness of the fellowship that will characterize the Re-union dinner 
that I will so much miss. 

LYNN — Please convey to the Class the love and respect of a 
warm heart, and one that never regrets his sojourn in dear, old Prince- 
ton. May God's blessings and smiles rest upon her while humanity 
lasts. May the Lord's richest favo'rs be the portion of her sons and 
servants everywhere. 

MACLEAN — Best wishes to all of the Class that is left. 

McMillan — wish we could all meet at this re-union. May we 
all meet in the great church above, saved by the grace of Jesus Christ, 
our Lord. 

NELSON — Tell the boys I am still working in the oil fields, have 
ten points where I preach, and ten Sunday Schools. Hope to hold on 
until the gi'eat Class Re-union. Tell the fellows I will be with them 
in spirit and only wish I could be there in person. I think of them 
all as the best fellows I ever knew, and am proud of their lives and 
records. May God bless and keep them all and may we all serve Him 
for many years yet. 

PARKER — Always interested in the activities of classmates, and 
send greetings, hoping that their service for the Kingdom will long 
continue to bear a rich fruitage. 

PATERSON — Nothing m~ore than that the present calls for men 
of clear heads, pure hearts, and courageous souls. We need men who 
will go to the stake for Jesus Christ, if necessary. 

REMINGTON — The heartiest greetings and best wishes. Wish 
I could be at the Re-union, but adversity smiles upon me, and I grin 
back and hope for better things some other time. 

. ^2> 

FRANK HYATT SMITH — Best class since Reformation. When 
I have a church again, I will hang a ribbon of orange and black at the 
lecturn, and put the purple in the waste basket. Keep away from 
Episcopalians, and Baptists, and Unitarians. Pound out Patton's 
theology in a new dress, and let the galled jades wince. Keep away 
from all seducers and penny fathers. Beecher could have coughed up 
more ability than resides in 33 presbyteries. 

W. H. P. SMITH — Remember we are not responsible for what 
happens, but for what we preach and what we teach and how we live. 

TROMPEN — My prayer and best wishes to all. 

VOORHIES — Best wishes. 

WARNE — Mizpeh, and "God be with you till we meet again." 

MACBETH — I have most kindly memories of the Class. My 
message would be, the text of Dr. Patton's on the 100th anniversary 
(which I attended,) viz, "Earnestly contend for the faith, once de- 
livered to the saints." That is the worth-while work. 

HEUVER — I am trying to reproduce in my life the spirit of Jesus, 
and am working hard to get people to follow Him. I have the dearest 
wife and children. 

Other messages were given in person at the Re-union, and some 
failed to send any. 


What car? Well, make your own choice. The reliable Ford is 
the Class Favorite, with five using it, viz, Heuver, Moore, W. H. P. 
Smith, Voorhies, and Whitaker. But the Oldsmobile with three, viz, 
Everitt,^ Levingood, and Warne; the Dodge with three, viz, Gardner, 
Nelson, and Trompen; the Chevrolet, with three, viz, Adams, Bryant, 
and Johnson; and the Buick, with three, viz, H. M. Campbell, R. J. 
Campbell, and F. W. Eraser, are pressing it close. Thompson and 
Remington are almost in a class by themselves, as they swear by the 
Franklin, as will also McMillan and Penrose, by the Packard. But 
other cars are heard from in Anderson for the Essex, McLeod for the 
Chrysler, Wylie for the Nash, Hudnut for the Hudson (a new Brou- 
gham). What more can we offer you? We may be conservative in 
our Theology, but we are very liberal in our offer of a choice of 
machine. Some fellows are wise * * * and have none. Frank Hyatt 
Smith says: "remember Elijah." 

Now, why not hit the trail for an "over-night" with the fellows? 
Why not R. J. Campbell, in Toronto (who drives a new car every time 
he comes to Princeton, because he has to have something new in that 
town), pick up our gracious Lynn in Ontario, and together leave the 
King's dominions for the time, and ramble thro the States. Of course, 
tiiey will start in New England as all good pilgrims did, and do, 
touching on the way, however, Eddy, at Cape Vincent, N. Y. up near 
their Canadian border. They will find Bryant, with latch-string out, 
in Pawtucket, R. I., and perhaps Carrington nearby at Woodsocket, if 
he has not moved by that time to his new home in the south. Over 
in the Nutmeg State (Conn.) is Lew Paton at Hartford, and Remington 
at East Hampton, while Mrs. MacGinness is at Danbury. 

The busy metropolis has little time for tourists, yet has many, 
and you may get McLeod's ear for a moment by phone, or call at 1 
West 4 8th St; or run out into the suburbs, up into Westchester Co., 
or beyond, to Gardner's bachelor domicile, or to Thompson's hospitable 
country home in Orange Co., where your machine * * * mental, of 
course * * * will most likely break down with his logic; or still further, 
on to our farmer-preacher, W. "H. P. Smith, at Wyoming, N. Y. Nor 
must we forget Mrs. Jessup at Yonkers, Mrs. Oates at Tarrytown, and 
Mrs. Williams at Riverdale. The beautiful shores of the Hudson will 
soon be the haven of all our good women, and they could not choose 
better. Mrs. Erskine is near Thompson at Pine Bush. 

In the "wettest State in the Uuion", you will And here and there 
an arid spot * * so we hope. Doughty, in Union City, N. J., Barack- 
man at West New York, N. J., are near enough to New York to bo 
"moist", but we trust not. If they are, come on over to your Secre- 
tary's home, and big verandah, at Cranbury, just half-way between 
New York and Philadelphia, and only nine miles from Princeton itself; 
or to Warne's at Trenton, and Bannerman's at Titusville, only ten 
miles above. A detour north would reach Hugh Miller, near Phillips- 
burg. Paul Matthews is the only one who had nei-ve enough to settle 
in Princeton itself where he keeps close to Henry VanDyke next door, 
and directs the work of the great Episcopal Church, as its Bishop for 
the State. Just over the line from Trenton is Voorhies at Eddington, 
Pa. Below him you can cross the Delaware by bridge, and head for 
South Jersey, where you will find Paterson at Woodbury Heights, Mrs. 
Allen at Haddonfleld, and Mrs. Rankin at Berlin, while on the sunny 
strands of Atlantic City, you will find the most genial host and hostess 
of all, John McMillan and his good wife. 

The City of Brotherly Love (ask the Philadelphia Presbytery!) 
cannot but be inviting, with Whitaker and Levingood, and Bishop and 
Gulick, all within its limits. If the "blue laws" are not broken down 
by that time, it might be well ia spend a Sabbath there. Bull, at 
Kennett Square, not far away, would later carry you over "Blue Mon- 
day" with fresh milk f,Vom his dairy. 

From Philadelphia, two routes call you; one to the southland, in 
which case, you can enjoy Wylie's Irish humor at Wilmington, sup with 
George Cummings in the Capital City of Washington, and then "step on 
the gas" for a long run over fine roads to "reminisce" with Anderson, 
in Savannah, and see his wonderful church plant, and then finish up 
with McLean in the balmy sun of Florida at St. Petersburg. 

Or from Philadelphia, take the western trail, not forgetting 
Gibbons at State College, Pa., nor Alexander, at Pittsburgh. The 
Buckeye State of Ohio holds for you F. W. Eraser and Hudnut in 
Youngstown, from which a short detour north to the vicinity of Buffalo 
will bring you to Frank Hyatt Smith and his witticisms, at Williams- 
ville. Thence, you skirt the shores of Lake Erie to visit Mrs. Mason 
in Detroit, living with her son, and hunt up "Dunnie" at Maryville, 
Michigan, and hear again his thrilling "ladder story." 

Taking up again the trail westward, you come upon Parker at 
Paw Paw, 111, and Heuver, at Ipava, 111. You can pass by Chicago, 
the "payless" city, in detouring north to call on Allison, at Madison, 
Wis., and Adams among the beautiful lakes of Minnesota at Maple 
Plains. Still further is Johnson, our Indian missionary, at Mitchell, 
S. D. Retracing, we find Mrs. Annin in St. Louis. Amid the towering 

. 25 

Rockies, we have one lone representative, Trompen, at Aurora, Col., 
who holds the record for automobile endurance in having run his 
Dodge car, 156,920 miles. Think of it, you poor fellows, with your 
10,000, etc! 

Facing the glories ofl the setting sun. in the mellow atmosphere 
and sunshine of lower California, we find Nelson at Santa Barbara. 
Stege, across the bay from 'Frisco, will welcome you to Henry Camp- 
bell's comfortable home. Jungeblut is at Lodi, in the same State. 
Mrs. Baskerville is at Seattle, Mrs. Frank Fraser at Kennewick, Pen- 
rose at Walla Walla College, all in the State of Washington. A few 
miles further on, we come to the end of the trail with MacBeth, in 
Vancouver, B. C. Thence, our Canadian pilots can find their way back 
to their Eastern Canadian homes as best they can. But they must 
first stop long enough to kowtow to Moore, via cable, and tell him, 
that they have either missed the boat to Japan, or their money has 
run out. 

So endeth the story. But what these * * or any other fellows * * 
found out from their classmates en route wouldn't go in any book yet 
written. Who will be the first to try it out? Carrington is soon to 
travel across the continent. Maybe this will help him. Look up all 
addresses in the rolls elsewhere in this history. Henry Campbell 
drove over from California 1o the Class Re-union, as did also Adams 
from Minnesota, and R. J. Campbell from Toronto. All enjoyed it. 
Moore, without auto, visited many of the fellows on his journey east, 
and is very grateful fbr their hospitality and advises more fellowship 
of this character among the Class. Why not be increasingly sociable 
to the end? Drive up, open up, speak up, and all will feel better for it.

Copies of preceding histories of the Class can be secured of, the 
Secretary, upon request, free of charge, especially the silver anniver- 
sary number of 1915. 

Th Secretary has reserved not a little data, sent him by members 
of the Class, as to their children. This will be kept on file for future 
use, if the way opens. 

As the roll of widows increases, it is becomingly increasingly diffi- 
cult to locate these, and the Secretary would greatly appreciate notices 
of removal, death, etc. We have been unable to locate Mrs. Hedges who 
married again after her husband's death. 

Note this especially! Will the members of the families of the 
men, now living, promptly notify the Secretary of the death of any 
member of the Class, and the time of the funeral. He will then, in turn, 
notify members of the Class, especially those near at hand, so that, if 
at all possible, the Class may be represented at the funeral. This can 
only be done however, when there is full co-operation by the ftimily 
of the deceased. He would also appreciate a letter from some one of 
the family giving some particulars about the last illness and death, 
all of which would be filed for the next issue of the Class History. 

£^^ The cost of this publication is met by voluntary contribution. '^^fj] 

It is the wish of the officers that every widow of the Class should have 
a copy. The cost of this issue of sixty copies is $122.20. A balance is 
on hand now of $10.20, leaving $112.00 to be raised to cover all bills, 
with no money in the treasury for postage &c., up until 1935. Figure 
out for yourselves what each of 38 members should give to ease the 
mind of the Secretary-Treasurer, and let your checks come promptly. 
For he. wants his credit good with the printer. The three cuts have 
added not a little to the cost, but your Secretary thought they should 
be preserved. Extra copies of the Class Hymn have been printed on 
separate sheets for future Re-unions, or will be mailed on application. 

Now, please, fellows before you forget it, mail a check of not less 
than two dollars — and as much more as you can — to your Secretary to 
pay ALL bills. No more appeals until 19 35. 

If Class funds warrant, and data is sufficient, the Secretary would 
like to issue each year in April, a brief summary of Class news, together 
with the Commencement program of that year. He hopes to meet 
many of you each year at Commencement, and also in his home. Make 
Cranbury, your headquarters. 

The Class officers wish to thank all for their hearty co-operation, 
and for the fine spirit all have manifested in the work and life of the

CLASS OF 1890 




MAY 1935 


The Class of 1890 held its 45th Re-union Dinner at the Peacock Inn, 
Bayard Lane, Princeton, on Monday, May 13, 1935. 

Those present were Adams, Mrs. Wm. Allen, Henry Campbell, 
Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Campbell, Mi's. Eddy, Mr. and Mrs. Everitt, Mrs. 
J. C. Foose (daughter of Everitt), Levingood, McLeod, Mr. and Mrs. 
McMillan, Mr. and Mrs. Paterson, Thompson, and Mr. and Mrs. Warne 
— eighteen in all. 

The Secretary announced the death of our beloved Class President, 
Charles Whitaker, on January 2, 1934. The Class expressed its deep 
sorrow and instructed the Secretary to convey to Mrs. Whitaker its 

McLeod was elected Chairman of the meeting. 

The Secretary read his report, which was received, and ordered 
printed, with such additional data as may be of interest to the Class. 
It was decided, until further notice, to meet every two years, instead of 
five, with the same dinner arrangements as we have enjoyed at re- 
unions. The following Class Officers were then elected: President, 
M. J. McLeod; Vice-President, Henry M. Campbell; Secretary and 
Treasurer, F. B. Everitt. The Class again expressed its appreciation 
of the work of the Secretary in a substantial gift, which was gratefully 
acknowledged by him. He reported a balance in the treasury of $12.98. 

The members then spoke of their present work and it was a real 
pleasure to hear from Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Eddy, widows of our 
deceased brothers. 

The meeting closed with prayer by Henry Campbell.

The above is NOT a complete record of the families of the Class, 
but only some corrections in addresses, etc. For complete list, see 
History of 1930. No word has come from the children of Polk, Carson, 
and Phraner, although repeated letters were sent. That, to James Polk, 
at Atlanta, was returned. 


In the good Providence of God, we are permitted to meet once more 
in a Class Re-union, the ninth since graduation. We cannot but be grate- 
ful that the Lord has spared us and given us the rich measure of health 
that we seem to enjoy. We congratulate Bro. Warne on his fine return 
to health, since our last Re-union. Shuffleboard and Florida sunshine 
have surely done wonders for him. Gardner had to try the same remedy 
last winter. With McLean living there, if many more head for "St. 
Pete", we will start a boarding-house down there for the men of '90. 

Naturally, a Secretary runs almost to seed in statistics. So here 
are some idle ramblings of this Secretary's mind. 

I — AGE. The average age of the 29 men of the Class who have 
passed on, is 57 years, 5 months, and 14 days. You recall that three of 
our men died before they were thirty-five; MURCHIE, the first to go, 
after only four years and two weeks of active service, at the age of 33; 
RANKIN, with a record of only two weeks longer in service, had just 
passed his 28th birthday; while PHRANER, with a service record of 
only four years and seven months, was but 34 years and 7 months old, 
at death. 

Three of the Class passed away in the first decade of 1890-1900, 
four in the first decade of the new century, viz, Hedges, Mason, Gates, 
and Heaney; five between 1910-1920, Allen, Baskerville, Erskine, 
McCuish, and Williams; seven in the decade, 1920-1930, viz, Carson, 
Annin, Frank Eraser, Jessup, McGinness, Ed Miller and Polk; while 
no less than ten have left us in the past five years. 

The break in this pentad began in 1931, when Anderson was called 
home while on a visit to his former charge in Montgomery, Ala. Lynn, 
our patriarch, after reaching his eighty-first year, died on September 2, 
of that same year, and on December 19, of that year, Jungeblut, in far- 
off California, fell asleep — three in one year. That same year also 
brought heavy sorrow to Levingood in the death of his second wife, 
whom he had married but a year before. 

1932 found our beloved Paton at death's door, his going, being on 
January 24th. The next year, Eddy was laid to rest in Newton, N. J., 
on December 5th. 

The last year has been especially heavy in its toll. Our genial 
President, Charlie Whitaker, was called home on January 2nd. Soon 
after, on March 12th, Voorhees fell under a sudden apoplectic stroke. 
In August, three of us laid to rest our beloved Bannerman, the man 
with the stalwart missionary spirit. On November 8th, Frank Hyatt 
Smith yielded up his life here at the age of 77 years. That same year 
brought the crushing blow to Henry Campbell in the death of Mrs. 
Campbell on January 10th. Likewise, were Wylie and Remington called 


into the same shadow, the latter's wife dying on October 27th. Since our 
Re-union in May, Paterson suddenly died on September 9, 1935, 

To all our sorrowing circle, we extend our deepest sympathy, and 
pray God's richest comfort on them all. Verily, "He giveth His Beloved, 

II— THE LIVING MEMBERS. Twenty-eight still remain in the 
Class, and it is a real source of satisfaction that each has been heard 
from. Only eleven of these can be said to be in actual pastoral service. 
Two or three more are on the point of retiring. 

The average age of the living members is now 70 years, 5 months, 
and 15 days. Rate yourself accordingly. (Ages can be compared in a 
later schedule.) 

Ill— MINISTERS AND TEACHERS. Our Class can be proud of 
eight grandsons in the ministry; Adams, one; Moore, one; Parker and 
Baskerville, three each. The Parker, Moore, and Gibbons families are 
the missionary families, as far as furnishing workers for the mission 
field goes. Parker has three in that field, two in India, and one in the 
Philippines. Moore has two in Japan. Gibbons has two in India. 
McCuish has one in China. 

As sons in the ministry, not missionaries, Baskerville has two, 
Moore has one, Parker has one, Hudnut has two. 

Two are practising medicine, Robert Mason and W. Sinclair Voor- 
hees. Teaching probably claims the next largest number some attain- 
ing high distinction therein, as Albert G. Parker, Jr,, now President of 
Hanover College, Indiana, Rebel^ah Gibbons is at the head of the 
Division of Nutrition, in the School of Home Economics, in the Univer- 
sity of Nebraska, and has been freely used by the State in much of its 
work, Ruth Anderson is at the head of the Moravian Woman's College 
Y, W, C, A. in Winston-Salem, N. C, and teaches two classes in Bible 
there. Sydney Levingood is an Assistant Professor in the Department 
of Modern Languages, Princeton University. John W. Moore heads the 
Educational work of Winston-Salem, N. C, as its Superintendent. Pen- 
rose has a son, assisting him in teaching Philosophy in Whitman College. 
IV— THE QUESTIONNAIRE. The replies to the questions asked, 
furnishes much food for thought. On the question of retirement, Adams, 
McMillan and Trompen seem too healthy or too busy to think of it. 
And it does not look very promising for your Secretary — those restful 
days in seclusion — when he doubles up in his work by the merging of 
the two Presbyterian churches in his town, each of them large and pros- 
perous. It gives him now a combined membership of over 700, and all 
rural, probably 350 families. One of the largest rural churches any- 
where in the Synod. Cummings, Henry Campbell and Nelson, find it 
very hard to keep "unemployed", the latter even serving without pay, 


and at considerable physical difficulty, as not very well. McLeod has 
retired — BUT is to preach once a month, or the like. Has a very nice 
pension from his church. He expects to write and travel. Levingood 
says, he will retire soon, but no date as yet set. 

On the question of National Recovery, the almost unanimous reply 
is negative. Doughty expresses himself as in entire sympathy with 
the efforts of our President, but is doubtful. Levingood is "hopeful, but 
very doubtful". Hugh Miller says, he is doing the best he can, with 
which Nelson agrees, saying: "he is at least trying". Warne is, like 
Wilson, "watching and waiting". I believe, we all want to be sympa- 
thetic and patient, but there are so many serious questions aroused by 
any extreme measures, that it seems the part of wisdom to withhold 
conclusions for the time being. There is still too much political propa- 
ganda and scheming to warrant final decisions. There is unquestion- 
ably much that is good in the New Deal, and, at the same time, much 
that is without question in error. 

As to the action of the General Assembly on the Independent Board, 
there is, as was to be expected, a wide range of varying opinion. And 
that, not on any theological ground, but rather a question of expediency 
and constitutionality. Both extremes are found in the replies, from 
"absolutely necessary", to "unwise, autocratic, and unconstitutional". 
While it might be enlightening to give more in detail, and a good 
argument might be enjoyed — as was the famous Revision Debate in our 
student days, — yet the Secretary sees no gain in printed discussion and 
prefers to give no names. It seems a matter of purely individual 

As to the condition of the church, it is, in every case but one or 
two, regarded as critical and discouraging. Nelson thinks, he sees im- 
provement. So does Trompen. But most cry for a real revival. Cum- 
mings thinks, the religious conditions are simply the reaction from the 
political. As a whole, the nation is in a deplorable condition spiritually 
— and what is worse, it does not seem to sense it. 

As to the future, it is "as bright as the promises of God". There 
seems to be a "waiting for the blessed hope", with keener expectancy, 
for that Return. 

The times call for stalwart men, and the men of '90 have now had 
that experience that should make them that type of men. With renewed 
consecration and with invincible spirit, let us continue the task, that 
the Lord has so graciously given to us. May the end find us with our 
grip firmer than ever upon the "things that are spiritual and eternal". 

Frank B. Everitt, 




Of the twenty-eight men remaining, it has been the privilege of the 
Secretary to visit personally fifteen of them in their own homes. He 
would bear witness to their kindly hospitality and their happy estate. 
Sickness and sorrow have visited some, but faith and courage remain. 

None welcomed the Secretary and his wife more cordially than 
Seelye BRYANT in the summer of 1934 in his home in Pawtucket, R. I. 
While greying in locks, Seelye has not lost the keen sparkle in his eyes, 
and his genuine interest in the old Seminary days and associations. 
How the midnight hours looked down on two old chums, poring over 
those old Seminary photographs that Seelye treasures so dearly! Some 
of you athletes of those days would smile at yourselves in your old 
"togs". Thompy is but a shadow. Seelye is now an Episcopalian rector, 
although "always a Congregationalist at heart". And why not? After 
three generations of Congregational preachers behind him! His Bishop 
lives near him, and he is very happy in his relations with his Episcopal 
brethren. His daughter lives with him, Mrs. Bryant being in poor 
health. Seelye has had some close grips with rheumatism, which really 
kept him from our last Re-union. 

BULL is weathering the years fairly well on his dairy farm near 
Kennett Square, Pa. His 74 years has put a few more kinks in his 
joints, and he is doing more work than he should be doing. His wife, 
long an invalid, is no better. 

Our visit this summer, with the McMillan's, to the home of "the 
late" R. J. CAMPBELL in Toronto was both a revelation and an in- 
spiration. For Richard has a hillside of beauty in his rock garden in 
the rear of his home — mostly planned by himself — and a whole firma- 
ment of sunshine and loveliness in his amiable little wife. It is no 
wonder, that his life is bound on all sides by the wonderland of joy 
and happiness, and he says, he expects to live to be a hundred years old. 
But, my boy, if you do, put on the brakes, and don't lose your nerve 
with the police. For Richard is some driver! and every time, he wants 
to break in a new car, he somehow manages to get one to bring him 
down to class re-unions at Princeton. 

George CUMMINGS still holds forth in Washington, busy as a 
regular supply at Bethesda, Maryland, his Greek New Testament, being 
his chosen companion, — pardon me, Mrs. Cummings. Both he and his 
wife enjoy splendid health, and George continues to be the guardian of 
ecclesiastical procedure as Stated Clerk of Synod, and Permanent Clerk 
of Presbytery. 

DOUGHTY has been visited twice lately, the last time, in company 
with Thompson and Henry Campbell, when we secured, not fingerprints, 
but a good photo of him. So, if he does not show up next time at our 


Re-union, we will expose him — through his picture. For over fourteen 
years, he has been laboring in his field in a Reformed Church in Union 
City, N. J. Family well, but a blind daughter at home. 

Murray GARDNER writes enticing letters from Brewster, N. Y., 
up among the suburban hills of Dutchess County, just above New York. 
That is as near as he dared to get to the metropolis, lest the city be too 
much disturbed. Murray is a believer in community service, and heads 
up various enterprises, such as the town library — and the local "aviary". 
For don't miss his birds, when you call. He spent last winter in Florida 
and yearns for another flight — solo? of course. What other kind could 
he take, wifeless as he is. Murray follows the injunction, '"he that is 
single, let him be singular still". 

GIBBONS surprises us all. Though our Nestor in age, he hammers 
away in State College, Pa., on the fine points of Journalism, to a deeply 
interested group of young literary hopefuls. Health fine, so he says, 
and still happily at work. And why not? for he has as fine a family 
of real achieving merit as any man in the Class, two of them in India. 
Six grandchildren, three in India, three at home, and "as proud of them 
as any grandaddy can be". Why shouldn't he keep young? 

McLEAN is, hidden away under "his own vine and figtree" on the 
shores of the Gulf of Mexico, at Gulfport. All Class visitors to St. 
Petersburg, look him up. He is trying to keep going in a new church, 
with good equipment, but poor financially. He has suffered a heavy 
blow in the death of his only son, an adopted boy, who went through 
the World War, and finally died last year. 

John McMillan is our perpetual wonder. He steps on the gas so 
fast in his church work, that it makes us dizzy. When John gets down 
to figures of weekly attendance at his services, all slams at Atlantic 
City as a worldly city are "called off" at once. With the biggest Sunday 
School in Atlantic City, and a church program that never lags, he is in 
a whirl of excitement all the time. With two exceptions — and both of 
these churches having over a thousand members — John led all his 
Presbytery last year in additions on confession of faith — forty-four in 
all. With that S. S. of over 800, what a field for soul-winning, and 
John knows that work to perfection. But such a pace is only in keeping 
with that new Packard, which we had the pleasure of handling this 
summer on a 3000-mile trip to Canada and the midwest. Some car and 
some royal good time, as we visited the famous foot clinic of Dr. Locke 
at Williamsburg, and the Dionne Quintuplets, Canada's greatest wonder. 
John is a real traveller, his visit last year to the old country, and his 
stay on the king's estate at Balmoral, a never-to-be-forgotten memory. 
He has a student helper in the winter from Princeton. 


Hugh MILLER, we visited this Fall. Found him, living alone 
(never married) on a back road near his first charge at Harmony, N. J. 
He is getting very deaf and, because of that, seldom goes anywhere. 
Yet he has still his gleaming eye, that tells of a keen mind and interest 
in things. Hugh was very coi'dial and would certainly appreciate a 
letter now and then from some classmate. Address him at Phillips- 
burg, N. J., R. D. 2. 

In the summer of 1934, Mrs. Everitt and I looked up REMINGTON, 
on the eastern shore of the Connecticut River, where he ministers to a 
small rural Congregational Church. Our camera came in good here, too. 
Mrs. Remington was not very well, and has since died but was then 
able to be around. Since her death, we learn that he has toured to 
California, stopping a month at El Paso, Texas. He has a fine summer 
home on the top of the New Hampshire hills. He expects to retire soon. 

The Goodwill manse, near Montgomery, N. Y., has always breathed 
a wholesome atmosphere of quiet contentment and genial cordiality as 
more than one member of the Class can testify. For forty-five years 
in the same place cannot but do something just like that. If you want 
a real pleasure, spend a Sunday as we did with Mr. and Mrs. THOMP- 
SON there. We saw about everything — except, Dunnie, the Yost. Saw 
his fine congregation who love them dearly, even though he asks them 
every Sunday from the pulpit the Catechism. That was a new one to 
us, using the Catechism in public worship. But they want it, he says. 
We even had the pleasure of showing the Thompsons the beautiful 
Lake Minnetonka, not so far away from him, but which they had never 
seen. A fine recognition of their. 45th wedding anniversary was given 
them by their people recently, when a purse of $125 was placed in their 
hands. Here's, to their fiftieth! 

WARNE still suns himself — when he is not playing shuffleboard 
with his neighbors on his concrete run in his basement — on the quiet 
banks of the Delaware, in Trenton, and yet not in it. For his outlook 
is quite rural. Ruby surely is a Florida booster, and hies away every 
winter to try his hand at excelling in shuffleboard — just as he used to 
do in tennis. Ask Seelye. Mrs. Warne suffers much from arthritis, 
and needs the warmer climate. 

This about complete the itineration, as far as your secretary goes. 
We, in Cranbury, have kept open house for the Class, especially at all 
times of Princeton gatherings, and our memories recall happily many 
hours spent with the boys, who have honored us with their presence. 
Last May, I had the pleasure of four classmates in the pulpit with me, 
McLeod to preach, R. J. Campbell to read the Scriptures, McMillan to 
pray, and Henry Campbell to say a few words in introducing McLeod. 
Warne was also in the audience, unknown to us, or he would also have 
had a part. It was a delightful pre-Re-union fellowship. 


We still live in the hope of seeing the others in their homes, 
especially those near at hand, as McLEOD in his comfortable home in 
the Bronx, near New York, or even in his summer home at Eldon, 
Prince Edward Island, Canada. And LEVINGOOD at Berwyn, suburb 
of Philadelphia, if he does not retire and depart to realms unknown 
before we get a chance. He holds his own very well, although much 
alone, since his wife's death, but feels the end of active work is nearing. 

WYLIE can only be visited in winter, as he spends his summers 
with his daughter in Leatherhead, England. He winters with his son, 
Hugh, in Providence, R. I., where, we are glad, he has met Bryant and 
enjoyed renewed fellowship. One time, in Minneapolis, at the General 
Assembly, we saw Wylie get a whole suite, when others were going 
begging; and it seems, he can still pull the trick, for he now travels in 
a special suite on board the steamer through the courtesy of the Captain. 
Pardon me, he and R. J. had better team together. Or does it take an 
Irishman to "get there"? 

We hope before many moons to again hie away to Florida. In fact, 
it is our fondest dream to always spend our winters there, when we 
retire. Our summer home at Rehoboth Beach, Del., looks good to us 
for one-half the year, and then, Florida for us! When we go, of course, 
we will look in on CARRINGTON in his new home in Orlando, where 
he is entertaining tourists, and enjoying the social and religious life of 
a truly wonderful city with its many lakes and churches. Look him up 
at 420 Magnolia Avenue. Two daughters are at home, one soon to be 
married. ^A few years ago, with the McMillans, we called on him in his 
former home in the same city, on McLEAN, and also on DUNLAP, then 
wintering in Delray. Dunnie can still regale you with wit and humor, 
and it was a delightful time we had, while dining with him. He sur- 
prised us this year with a good, long letter sent by special delivery from 
Daytona Beach, Fla., in time to be read at our gathering in May. Both 
he and his wife are well, and enjoy Florida winters, with a summer 
home in northern Michigan, which we came near visiting this summer. 
We were also not so far away from FENWICK ERASER and HUD- 
NUT in Youngstown, Ohio, but our time was limited. ERASER writes 
that he has been re-elected Stated Clerk of Mahoning Presbytery for a 
term of three years — this being the fifth or sixth time. His wife's new 
play, "The Woman Who Turned Back" is in its second edition of 5,000 
copies, while her first play, "Two Masters", first published twenty years 
ago, is now in its 13th edition, over 35,000 copies having been sold. 
She is a fine missionary leader, being President of the Ohio Synodical, 
and has shown her spiritual and intellectual qualities in these plays. 

JOHNSON and his wife had a beautiful tribute shown them 
recently, when an Indian woman presented them with a handsome 
picture, "The Rock of Ages", suggestive of the faith which they have 


so long and so faithfully tried to impart to the Indian folk. Johnson 
put over a wonderful pageant of Indian missions before their Indian 
Conference last year. It involved tremendous effort but was well worth 
it all. He is most beloved by all those Dakota Indians, now one of the 
most Christianized tribes of our Indian life. 

PARKER, too, will come in for a visit some of these days. He has 
now moved to Mendota, 111., and is enjoying now the luxury of a son 
home on furlough from the mission field. HEUVER also clings to the 
Prairie State, and may be found also in his new home at Rockford, 111. 

The way that ADAMS returns to Re-unions with cleanly shaved 
face and unwrinkled brow, making him look younger than ever, is a 
reminder to all of us wrinkled fellows to "go and do likewise". What 
keeps Adams so young must be his outdoor life. For he lives the life 
of a circuit-rider of old with his three rural churches. But, my! how 
they do respond. One of his three churches the past winter increased 
50% in attendance. Its midweek meeting runs from 40-100. The C. E. 
Society has forty members with an average attendance of fifty. It 
maintains a cottage-prayer meeting in addition to its regular C. E. 
meeting. A dozen young people are studying for full-time Christian 
service. A student assistant has been secured so that four services a 
Sabbath can be held. We are glad that the Minneapolis Presbytery 
recognized the work of this dear brother, and made him recently their 
moderator, an experience which Craig describes as "pleasant, but hectic". 
We were sorry to hear at Re-unipn that Mrs. Adams was not well, and 
could not be with us, as she has been at so many of our gatherings. 
Craig enjoys an oil-burner for heat, and says, he had the laugh on all 
of us easterners last winter. For they had a mild winter, and we 
nearly froze. 

The rest of you fellows will have to wait on that long-hoped for 
trip to the coast. Mac and I may yet try it. Mrs. Trompen and Henry 
Campbell keep hurling at us all kinds of luring bait. What a joy it 
would be to look in on the TROMPEN'S. For we know, from exper- 
ience in a visit they made to us, that it will be a real spiritual reviving 
when we meet again. For no lovelier people abide this side of heaven. 
Their beautiful Christian spirit is a benediction to any home. They 
labor on, rejoicing as ever in the "marvellous work of God" in saving 
men. Both keep unusually well. They journey east quite often to visit 
their son in Brooklyn. We hope to see them soon again. 

And California! the land superb, in spite of EPIC, etc., Henry 
CAMPBELL, the genial soul, never relaxes in his cordial invitation to 
come out. He is as fine a correspondent as he is a lovable character. 


The Secretary just cannot help, putting in an extra bit of emphasis 
into the word, brother, when he speaks of Henry. For we went west 
together, straight from the old halls in Princeton, He followed me in 
Kansas City, and our love for each other has never wavered. Never 
mind, Henry, we are coming. Don't close up those two houses of yours 
in San Jose, and do not take that trip to Siam yet. His former parish- 
ioners in Phoenix, Dr. and Mrs. George MacFarland, are pressing him 
to visit them in Bangkok. Maybe, the Clipper will soon be heading 
straight for that city, and then, go, my boy. 

NELSON is now living at Santa Maria, to be near his oil men, 
with whom he continues to work even without pay, as they are too poor 
to pay anything. He has had a slight stroke lately, and somewhat 
incapacitated for work, but he says, "the Class of '90 never quits". 
His boy is with him, his wife, having died a few years ago. 

This completes the round of our living members, except John 
MOORE in Japan, our lone representative on the foreign field. John is 
still going strong in that Island Empire, but looks with some misgiving 
ahead to May 18, 1936, when he reaches retirement age of seventy, 
and he cannot, or will not, be re-commissioned as an active worker there. 
His allowance from his Board is enough to live on, but he will be left 
without native help and other accessories, as we understand it. He does 
not yet think of returning home for good. Has two children now over 
there. His youngest girl, Bertha, wants to go out as medical mission- 
ary to Thibet, and John is anxious about financing her preparation, 
as she is only beginning her special training. She is at present in the 
Johns Hopkins College for Nurses in Baltimore, and if there is any 
possible way to get into the medical college, she wishes to do so. How 
we all wish we were millionaires to help her ! If you have any contacts, 
or know of any scholarships along that line, John would appreciate any 
suggestion from any one. His daughter, Eleanor, is leaving Japan next 
summer for America. She has been secretary to the Principal of the 
Canadian Academy in Japan. 

John is much concerned over the status of belief on the foreign 
field, and is disappointed in Kagawa, as he is too socialistic in his views, 
and seems to preach a mixed gospel. One thing we are sure of, viz., 
that there will be no compromising of the truth, when John Moore 
preaches. For he is Fundamentalist to the core, and we all can sym- 
pathize with his concern over present day conditions in the church. 
But, John, let me pass on one sentence I heard last night from a prom- 
inent pastor: "When there are no problems in the church, then the 
Lord is getting ready to call his servant home". 


Under date of Nov, 5th, 1935, I have just received a three-page 
letter from John whose letters are most deeply appreciated. For he is 
a very busy man. I shall be glad to share this letter with any class- 
mate, upon request, and am only sorry that I cannot give more of it in 
this brief account of our classmates. 

Our Auxiliary Roll 

One of the most gratifying things to the Secretary has been the 
ready response of the widows and children of our deceased members to 
our questionnaire. We now have twenty widows living — two, Mrs. 
Erskine and Mrs. Mason — having died recently. Mrs. Carson, Mrs. 
McCuish, Mrs. Hedges, Mrs. Phraner and Mrs. Polk had already passed 
on with their husbands. Of these twenty living, all have been heard 
from — a wonderful record of loyalty! 

The replies of these sisters would make an interesting thing in 
itself. No man can put into words what has gone into the silent, lonely 
struggle of those bereft of long-time companions, especially of those 
who have no children to comfort them with their presence. Among 
such are the following: Mrs. MacGINNESS, who writes: "My occupa- 
tion seems to be, enjoying myself. I am very well, indeed." She has 
enjoyed a trip to California, and last winter, to Florida, where she met, 
in Georgia, her first auto accident. A cow disputed her right of way — 
ergo, a broken collar-bone. She was kind enough to call on me while 
passing through one of her trips, and showed a deep interest in all 
members of the Class. 

Mrs. FRANK HYATT SMITH is another cheerful soul, in spite of 
her lone vigils. For she keeps herself still interested and busy in 
church and community affairs, as did her husband. She resides in the 
Lutheran Home in Buffalo, where her husband died, and where, he said 
just before death, "it has been, in some respects, the most contented 
year of my life". She serves still, with her fine intellectual ability, on 
numerous committees in service. R. J. Campbell and wife recently 
called on her, and found her most genial and cordial. 

Mrs. WHITAKER has felt very keenly her loss, and finds it harder 
to be reconciled. But she, too, is seeking some kind of Christian, or 
other, service that will occupy her mind and strength. She has rented 
her home, while taking a temporary apartment in Jenkintown, Pa. 

Mrs. WILLIAMS answered very fully and interestingly our letter. 
She resigned her executive position in the Riverdale Country School 
two years ago, and is now doing special work there, but only in the 
busiest seasons. She lives in Riverdale-on-the-Hudson, where she is 
happily and actively interested in the work of the Riverdale Presby- 
terian Church. 


Of the sisters near at hand, we have met in person lately the follow- 
ing: Mrs. ALLEN, who has never missed a Re-union, even after her 
husband's death, is lying helpless with a broken hip, suffered in a fall 
last July in her home. Little hope is held out for recovery, although 
at this time, she is showing commendable improvement and more com- 
fort. But it has affected her mind as well as her body. 

Mrs. BANNERMAN is in her new home on the banks of the 
Delaware in Titusville, where he served so long, and where his body lies. 
She is still most active in church and missionary work, and finds con- 
genial fellowship in her new pastor, and his wife, returned missionaries 
from Persia. 

Mrs. EDDY was present, for the first time, at our last Re-union in 
May. She lives in the beautiful Merriam Home for Presbyterian Min- 
isters and their wives, in Newton, N. J., where her husband is buried. 
She has her own car, and drives herself, even to Florida. The Class 
truly rejoiced in her presence with us, and in her good health and 
enjoyment of life. 

Mrs. LYNN and daughter, Lida, opened their doors to us itinerants 
last summer and served us with such a delicious dinner, and good 
fellowship, that their lovely home in the heart of Kitchener, Ontario, 
will always be a blessed memory. We found Mrs. Lynn unusually well 
for a woman in the eighties, with mind keen, and heart contented. The 
daughter, in a real way, is carrying on the work of her father, being 
an ordained evangelist, and going a good deal of special revival work. 
She is also an active W. C. T. U. worker. Lynn went into the United 
Church movement in Canada, and was pastor of one of their churches. 

Mrs. OATES has always been a most worthy exponent of that 
charming American quality, known as Southern Hospitality. Two visits 
to her have proved that beyond all question. In the old town of Princess 
Anne, Md., in the Makemie country, she holds property and calls it, 
home, although she really lives in Summit, N. J., where she has been 
house-mother and librarian in the Kent Place School for Girls. But her 
old ancestral home on the banks of the Pocomoke to which she took us 
one pleasant Sunday, and the old Rehoboth Church, the oldest Presby- 
terian Church in the country, we are told — these, with that wonderful 
box-wood garden, and the old Eastern Shore traditions, keep her heart 
still in the Southland. Of course, she is wrapped up in that boy, Robert 
Luther, who is doing engineering construction work in Washington, D. C. 

Mrs. PATERS ON had just moved into comfortable apartments in 
New Bedford, Mass., to be near her daughter, and where her husband 
expected to find some supply work and congenial fellowship with friends 
of former days, when his end suddenly came. They were both at our 
Re-union in May. She will still reside in New Bedford. 


others near at hand — on whom we may call some of these days — 
are Mrs. HEANEY living in Bala, near Philadelphia, with her son. 
She writes most appreciatively of our writing her, and our keeping in 
touch with her. 

Mrs. JESSUP still resides in Yonkers, her home before marriage. 
She reports three new grandchildren, seven in all, which is a good tonic 
for age. The newcomers are Stanley Jadwin Karhl, Thomas Allen 
Karhl, and Ida Jadwin Blake. Two daughters are unmarried, the fifth 
daughter, being the wife of an Englishman, and living in Oxford, Eng. 

Mrs. RANKIN remains still at Berlin, N. J., her home also before 
marriage. She has been through a severe strain in the illness of a 
sister, brother-in-law, and a daughter. Ella May is back at teaching, 
commuting every day. Helen has been for twelve years teaching Eng- 
lish in Springfield, Mass. Robert is now out of work, although with 
an A. M. in physics and mathematics. 

Mrs. VOORHEES replies that she is now living with her son, a 
practicing physician in Mendham, N. J. Is housekeeping in a small 
way. Three sons live to comfort her. 

Mrs. PATON has most interesting understudies in her three grand- 
children, two of whom — ages ten and six — have developed a "strong 
interest in the Egyptian exhibits in the Boston Museum, which would 
delight their grandfather Paton". She herself is still pursuing studies 
in Biblical Literature in Bryn Mawr for her Ph.D., which she hopes to 
get in a year or so. She is a real collegian, with interests also in 
Wellesley and Hartford. Her' association with her husband in his 
researches has opened a whole new world to her, that gives her great 

Still further away is Mrs. ANDERSON, whose interesting letters 
entitle her to a Belles Lettres degree — "or something". She, too, is a 
most happy grandmother, with seven grandchildren to entertain, which 
she does when in Winston-Salem, while her daughter attends to her 
school duties in the Moravian School for Girls. So, she says, "Ruth is 
carrying on her father's work" referring to her Bible teaching in that 
school. Mrs. Anderson has passed through a serious and painful illness, 
as the result of her strain after her husband's death, but she cheerfully 
writes: "working every waking moment, forgetting self, and memories, 
and doing for others is the only way you can endure the changed life 
(in widowhood)." She spends her time between her two daughters, one 
a minister's wife in Valdosta, Ga., and the other a lawyer's wife, in 

Mrs. ANNIN writes from St. Louis, where she has a position in the 
Lindenwood School about her family, the account of which is given 
elsewhere. She takes deep interest in all Class news and history. 


Mrs. FRANK FRASER is now a resident of Walla Walla, where 
her daughter, Sibyl, lives with three children. In the summer, she goes 
back to her apple ranch in the Yakima Valley, where his last pastor- 
ate was. 

Mrs. BASKERVILLE was not heard from directly, but through her 
son, we learn that she is well and is enjoying life in a nice apartment 
in Seattle, Washington. 

The same is true of Mrs. JUNGEBLUT, who reached us through 
her daughter, Laura, with whom she lives in Lodi, Cal. Will Parker 
and Moore take notice, that her oldest daughter, Mrs. Mettler, has eight 
sons and three daughters? Jungeblut showed his staunch orthodoxy by 
naming one son, Calvin, who is blessed with two sons and three daugh- 
ters. Both of these are ranchers. A third daughter, Mrs. Rinder, 
has three daughters — so nineteen grandchildren in all, and all live 
nearby in Lodi. We wonder what is the "batting average" of that 
family, and what there is in the air of Lodi, that is so opposed to race 
suicide. Hats oif, to the Class of '90 contingent in Lodi! 

The full address of these beloved sisters can be found on another 
page, as also more about their families. We thank again, one and all, 
for their splendid responses, and especially for the oft repeated expres- 
sion of their interest in the Class and its history. We hope to see more 
of them at our next Re-union in May, 1937. 

And the Grandchildren! 

Your Secretary has been heartened not a little by the interest that 
even the next generation is taking in the Class History. For years, we 
have been out of touch with the family of our colored brother, HEDGES. 
Now, after much earnest searching, comes a letter from his only son, 
Charles Lyman, living in Marietta, Ga. He sends full data of his 
father's life as follows: taught in Paine College, Augusta, 1891-2; 
pastor of Ebenezer Church, Rome, Ga., 1893-1901; married May 14, 
1894, Gwendolyn Lyman, who died July 28, 1895; health failed (through 
tuberculosis) and he went to Texas in 1902; married again in 1903, to 
Elizabeth McCall, of Houston, Texas. He died in that city on May 23, 
1906, his second wife, dying soon thereafter. The son does not say 
much about himself, but does write a fine letter. He adds: "I have all 
my father's papers and cherish more than all his picture of the Class 
of '90." 

The family of McCUISH is again heard from through his son, 
John B., Jr., and their record can be found on another page. 

Bob MASON — Dr. Bob, as his mother called him — ^wrote us fully 
of the death of his mother on August 4th of this year — a most loyal 
daughter of the Class. She had not been at all well for the past four 


or five years, being a hard sufferer from asthma and bronchitis. In 
'33-'34, she spent most of her time in bed or in the hospital; went out 
to California, seeking relief through a change of climate. This failed, 
although she spent a considerable time on the top of Mt. Baldy with a 
nurse, "fighting for breath". Came home in March, suddenly developed 
pneumonia, and died on June 11th. Cremated, as was her wish, her 
ashes are placed at the head of the grave of her beloved "Bob" in 
Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati. Friends, who would have given 
flowers, by request, gave to a Memorial Fund at her church. Robert 
Judson is an active church worker, being Superintendent of the Junior 
Department in the Sunday School. 

Arthur BASKERVILLE has also written fully about their family. 
To all these new correspondents, we wish to extend our heartiest thanks. 

The One-Year and Two-Year Men 

Following the Seminary Biographical Catalogue, we call the roll, 
as far as we have any information. 

ALEXANDER, faithful supporter in every way of our Class, is in 
active service, and carrying a "heavier load than ever". He is not only 
Superintendent of the Pittsburgh U. P. Synod, covering 165 churches, 
but also the Chairman of the Department of Comity of the Pennsylvania 
Council of Churches, and the President of the Pittsburgh Council of 
Churches. His CMO movement (Christ, Myself, Others) among young 
people has met with remarkable success. He had a very prominent part 
in the recent historical celebration of his denomination and wrote out 
its program or pageant. 

ALLISON (so Fenwick Eraser writes) had a stroke last year, then 
a gland operation, now back in Madison, Wis., but with no use of his 
right hand, and little use of one leg. 

BARACKMAN, visited by Henry Campbell, Thompson and myself 
last May, was happy to see us in his home, overlooking the Hudson at 
West New York, N. J. He is still hard at work over the First U. P. 
Church there, with prospects very poor, for retiring. His son, Paul F., 
is pastor of Dr. Carson's old church in Brooklyn, with over a thousand 

ERDMAN in Princeton, is retired as a pastor, still teaches in the 
Seminary, but looks forward to retirement from that in another year. 
He gives much time to writing his New Testament Commentaries, and 
to his work, as President of the Foreign Board. He rejoices in twelve 

HEUVER has retired from service at Ipava, 111., and moved to 
Rockford. He was rece^itly honored by his Presbytery, who came in a 
body to hear his farewell address on "Forty-five Years in the Ministry". 


He writes: "I am growing old gracefully — enough to live on comfort- 
ably. Began at fourteen years of age to look out for myself, and have 
never been a day without work — sixty years in all." At 68, he was 
invited to two different fields, and at 69, more overtures were held 
out to him. 

HUDNUT keeps going strong, in Youngstown, Ohio, over a church 
of 1441 members. Has two sons in the ministry, Herbert in Pittsburgh, 
and William H., at Glendale, Ohio. Keeps company with Erdman on 
the Board of Foreign Missions. Mrs. Hudnut recently died, the two 
sons, conducting a most impressive Memorial Service for her. Our 
sympathy is extended. Hudnut underwent, last June, a serious opera- 
tion in Presbyterian Hospital, N. Y. 

MATTHEWS is living in Princeton on Bayard Lane, and rules as 
Bishop over the Diocese of New Jersey. He has been with us for a 
brief while at some of our Re-unions, and we enjoy much his company. 
He is a lovable Bishop, whose visits we know to be helpful; not like the 
boy's idea, who replied to Bishop Colton's question, in Bombay, what a 
Bishop's visitation was; the boy replied: "an affliction sent of God". 
The good Bishop has intimated retirement in another year. 

MONTGOMERY— he with the long name, Theophilus— and a long 
body — lives in the lovely Minister's Home in Ambler, Pa. Meanders 
down to Princeton now and then to see if everything is all orthodox. 

PENROSE retired lately as President of Whitman College, in 
Washington State, but is still teaching philosophy, with a son, as 
assistant. He has written one book, entitled "Whitman, an Unfinished 

The death of two in this group is noted. We have had no direct 
word, but we understand that MacBETH, out in Vancouver, has passed 
on, which the Class will regret to hear. For he was a strong man with 
power behind every sermon he preached or word he spoke or wrote. 
He was a vigorous opponent of the United Movement in Canada, and 
had been Moderator of his Assembly. 

Leonard TWINEM died on September 19, 1935, at Akron, Ohio, at 
the age of 75 years. He had served numerous churches in West Vir- 
ginia and Ohio, and had retired from active work in 1920. He was a 
writer of note of poems and hymns. He is survived by his widow and 
three children. 


The following brief records of men who have passed away in the 
last five years is given in the order of their deaths. We wish that there 
was space for more extended accounts, as each deserves such recognition. 



Born in Yorkville, S. C, on July 15, 1865. Graduated from David- 
son College in 1885, took M.A. there in '87, and received his D.D, there

Died in Montgomery, Ala., May 19, 1931, at the age of 66. He had gone 
thither with his wife to visit some old friends, had passed a wonderfully 
happy day, when at nightfall, he was suddenly stricken, and passed 
away before morning. He lies buried in that city, his grave, being 
lovingly cared for by the Session of that church. Anderson was a man 
of versatile gifts, and led in many denominational and national move- 
ments in the South. He was one of the Southland's ablest leaders and 


Born in Kilsyth, Ont., Nov. 23, 1850. Educated at McGill Univer- 
sity. Professor of Latin and French in Lebanon Valley College, '84-'87.

pastor, Berlin, Ont., '10-'16; pastor. Kitchener, Ont., '17-'25, and pastor 
of United Church, Kitchener, '26-'28, Died in the latter city on Septem- 
ber 2, 1931, after suffering for some time from hardening of the arteries, 
at the ripe age of eighty-one, the only one in the Class as yet to reach 
the fourscore mark. He is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Kitchener. 
Lynn impressed all with his mature judgment and earnest purpose. 
While in the Seminary, his home in Princeton was open to many students 
who will recall its genial hospitality. 


Born in Germany, November 9, 1859. Graduated from Dubuque 
Seminary in '87, and from Princeton in '90. Was a Home Missionary 
in Milwaukee, '90-'91; then s. s. over the First German Church in Mil-

at Alexandria again, '01-03; at Eureka, S. D., '03-'04; at Lodi, Cal., 
from 1905 until his death on December 19, 1931. Jungeblut will be 
remembered as the accommodating mail-carrier at the Seminary, and 
many the days, when his visits were longingly awaited. He was a deep 
student, and well liked by all his fellows. 


Bom in New York City, June 27, 1864. Graduated from New York 
University, from which he received his D.D. in 1906. Took his Hebrew 
Fellowship in Berlin, and received his Ph.D. from the University of 


Marburg. He began his teaching work in Hartford Theological Sem- 
inary in 1892, was made Associate Professor of 0. T. Exegesis, and 
Criticism in 1893, full Professor of same in 1900, and continued in same 
position until 1932. He was made Director of the American School of 
Oriental Study and Research in Jerusalem, and labored there in that 
holy city in 1903. He had been in poor health since 1931, when he had 
pneumonia and pleurisy. In July, a serious throat condition somewhat 
alarmed him. It eventually developed into cancer. Radium treatments 
failed, and it reached the pleura. Strength waned, and he quietly 
passed away on January 24, 1932. He had been teaching in that Sem- 
inary for 39 years, and the Seminary held a beautiful Memorial Service 
in his honor. His last message to his Class was: "I now recognize that 
my malady is incurable, but I am not in despair. I realize Jesus' con- 
fidence in the unfailing love of God, His unfailing love for God and His 
divine love for men, and, therefore, I still take hope." He believed, in 
his dying, he was entering upon the greatest of all adventures, and his 
courage, patience and triumphant faith inspired all. By his extensive 
and valuable literary labors, he won his place in America's "Who's Who". 


Born in Belvedere, 111., Nov. 22, 1863. Graduated from Princeton 
University in '86, where he distinguished himself in oratory and in 
classics, carrying off a Fellowship, In the Seminary, he again captured 
a Fellowship, the one in New Testament, falling into his hands. He 
remained to study a year. In 1891, he became pastor at Beverly, N. J.,

pastor at Wyoming, N. J., '10-'23; University Pastor at Columbia 
University, N. Y., '23-'28 ; pastor at Cape Vincent, N. Y., '28-'31. Eddy, 
in later years, struggled with some mental difficulty, passing away on 
December 2, 1933, with burial in Newton, N. J. A warm-hearted soul, 
gentle beyond measure, and true to the old Gospel. 


Bom in Philadelphia, Dec. 7, 1862. Graduated from Princeton 
University in '87. His first charge was Avondale and West Grove,

gradual decline, at the age of 71. The secretary assisted his pastor. 
Dr. Muyskens, in the final service, Paterson also being present. Charlie 


had been our genial President through all the years, never missing a 
Re-union and presiding at each with dignity and with grace. He was a 
true follower of the Lord, and will be sorely missed at all our gatherings. 
Bom in Jersey City, N. J., Jan. 26, 1862. Graduated from Lafay- 
ette, 1887. Pastor at Elmer, N. J., '90-'92; at Second Church, Trenton,

'04-'09; and at Thompsonville, Conn., '09-'16; s. s. at Lyndhurst, N. J., 
'18-'20 ; pastor at Garfield, N. J., '21-'23 ; and at Edington, Pa., '23, until 
his death suddenly from apoplexy on March 12, 1934. Ill and uncon- 
scious for a day and a half from the first stroke. Your secretary also 
assisted in the final service. He received his D.D. from the University 
of Chicago in 1895. A man, beloved for his work's sake.

Normal School and Teacher's College, Toronto, '74-'77; and at St. 
Catherine's Collegiate Institute, '77-'79; in the University of Toronto,

sionary at Gaboon, West Africa, '90-'91, at Ogove River station, '92-'93, 
and again at Gaboon, '94-'97. On his return from that torrid clime, 
he tried the very opposite, and became a home missionary in Juneau, 
Alaska, '99-1900, then Sitka, '00-'07. Retiring from active missionary 
work, he found a most congenial pastorate at Titusville, N. J., where, 
from 1909, until his death on August 13, 1934, he labored most earnestly 
and successfully. He died from hardening of the arteries at the age of 
78. So loyal was this beloved brother to his Class, that he requested 
that his classmates have charge of his last services. This they did, 
Warne presiding, Everitt speaking, and Paterson, offering the prayer. 
They also laid him to rest besidfe the beautiful river he loved. He will 
long be remembered for his quiet ways and his lovable spirit. 


Born in Auburn, N. Y., July 22, 1857. Graduated from Princeton 
University, 1887. After two years in Union Seminary, N. Y., he came 
to Princeton. His first charge was over the North Avenue Congrega- 
tional Church, Cambridge, Mass., from '91-'95; then s. s. over Park 
Presbyterian Church, Buffalo, '96-1910; lecturer on Literature, in Uni- 
versity of Buffalo, '05-'07, and again '10-'12; pastor at Kenmore, near 
Buffalo, '13-'23. Died in the Lutheran Home in that city on Nov. 8, 
1934, where he said to his wife shortly before he died: "in some respects 
this year in the Home has been the most contented in all my life". 
Frank will always be remembered for his brilliant mind, his sparkling 
wit and humor, his letters never failing to be eagerly read. He was a 


master in aphorisms, and startling phrases of speech. He attained 
very high rank as an astrologist, and his fees for such work were said 
to be very high. He also ranked as an authority on Shakespeare, pos- 
sibly none higher in this land. His loyalty to the Masonic order could 
never be questioned. He lies at rest in Woodlawn Cemetery, Buffalo. 

ALLEN McDonald paterson 

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, April 3, 1858. Graduated from Knox 
College, Toronto, in 1886. Home Missionary in Ontario, '86-'87; pastor 
at Mechanicsville, N. Y., '91-1908; pastor. First Congregational Church, 
Shelburne, Mass, '08-'09; pastor, Old South Presbyterian Church, New- 
buryport, Mass., (where, under the pulpit, George Whitefield lies 
buried), '09-'26; pastor, Woodbury Heights, N. J., '26-'35. He retired 
from active work last June, and had just settled in a nice home in New 
Bedford, Mass., when an old heart trouble returned, and death suddenly 
took him on Sept. 9, 1935. Burial at Mechanicsville, N. Y. 

Since coming back to New Jersey, Paterson never lost a chance to 
meet with his classmates at every Princeton function. He had success- 
ful pastorates, and his work was done. He will be remembered for his 
steadfastness to the truth and his warm friendliness. 

Other deaths since 1930 have been Mrs. J. C. LEVING'OOD, the sec- 
ond wife of our brother, who, after only a short married life of a year, 
passed away on Feb. 14, 1932, after a lingering illness from cancer. 
Mrs. ERSKINE died in 1933, but no direct word has come about the 
details. Mrs. Hepry CAMPBELL, beloved on the whole Pacific Coast, 
for her good deeds and her missionary leadership as the President of 
her Synodical Society, went home on Jan. 10, 1934, leaving a very lonely 
Henry behind. Mrs. WYLIE joined the goodly company on the other 
side on Jan. 31, 1934, at the home of her daughter in Leatherhead, 
England. Burial in Belfast. Mrs. REMINGTON died in Middlesex 
Hospital, in Middletown, Conn., on Oct. 27, 1934, of cancer, but with 
little suffering. Burial was in Milford, Conn. Mrs. HUDNUT also 
passed on during the past year. 

McLEAN lost his only son, an adopted boy, Joseph. He went 
overseas in the World War, in 1917, and served to the end. Spent a 
year in Germany in garrison duty. Came through without a wound, 
and with six bars for fine service. Entered the aviation department of 
the Navy, became an officer in Air Service, but died of malignant cancer 
in the naval hospital at Mare Island, Cal. It is thought that it was 
induced by being gassed on the other side. And comes as a crushing 
blow to the loved ones in St. Petersburg, as they had put their hope in 
him for their advancing years.

In all, thirty-one members of the Class have been back to some

be back in Princeton on Re-union years. Whether or not, they have 
ever been back since leaving in 1890, we know not.

present at every one during his life-time. Parker, Levingood, Warne 
and Thompson have attended six of the seven; Wylie, Bannerman, and 
Henry Campbell, four; others, three or less. Moore has come twice 
from Japan, Henry Campbell four times from the Pacific Coast or far- 
west; Adams, three times from far-away Minnesota, and usually with 
his wife with him; while R. J. Campbell rambles down every year from 
Toronto. To these, go the crown of loyalty, as tested by distance. 
Some near at hand have never been back. 

Our Class has the unique distinction in Seminary Re-unions of 
always having invited the good wives, and even children, of the Class 
to attend. This innovation has added untold joy and distinction to 
every gathering. 


Gardner — no increase in family! mirabilis dictu. 

McLeod lives the primitive life in the summer on his ancestral 
estate in Prince Edward Island with oil lamps, etc. 

Johnson can still boast the most unique name for an heir — Magaska. 

Jessup had a unique experience, when on the birth of a son, he 
cabled to his brother in New York these words: "King Jessup, New 
York: son and heir born." The brother's law firm was King and Jessup. 
But when the Syrian censor got hold of that wire, all Beirut was in an 
uproar, and couriers went flying hither and yon, as in Jerusalem of old. 


For it was interpreted that a rival to the Syrian throne had been born. 
Only after Jessup had made a complete explanation, was the coffee 
passed and good fellowship restored. 

Alexander sends a good definition of an optimist. "An optimist is 
one who goes out on a dark night when clouds are black and scans the 
horizon when there is no light and sees a light. The pessimist goes out 
the same night, when clouds are black and mists are thick and scans 
the horizon and tries to blow that light out." 

Wylie states that he has preached in 103 churches on the other side 
of the sea, thirty -eight of them, being in Belfast; and in 87 churches on 
this side, forty of them in the Presbytery of Newcastle. He enjoyed 
meeting many old friends at the General Assembly of the Irish Church 
last June 

"John" Kelley of the Class of '89 is in the Minister's Home at 
Ballston Spa, near Saratoga, N. Y. He is losing his sight and very 
much alone since the death of his sister, with whom he had lived for 
many years. He is Secretary of his Class, and we enjoy exchange of 
letters and data. John would surely appreciate a letter, for he just 
hungers for a bit of sunshine from old friends. He sends a reminder 
for us old fellows, who persist in "holding on". It used to be a saying 
among his farmer friends, "There's a worn-out preacher. He wants 
still to plod. Knock him in the head and put him 'neath the sod." 
Well, boys, really how long should a sane man keep his job from the 
hands of a younger man? Who will answer? 

The Seminary enrollment is now 191. The selective policy of the 
Seminary has considerably reduced the number of entering students, 
each year a goodly number being turned down. This has resulted in a 
better student body as a whole. Wheaton College still leads in students 
enrolled. Twenty-eight states and nine countries are represented, there 
being one each from Alaska, Ireland and South America; two each from 
Germany and Hungary; three from Canada; four from Korea; five 
from China; and six from South Africa. New additions to the faculty 
include Dr. Edward Kase, from Grove City College, and Dr. Sherman 
Gapp, both teaching Greek. 

The total subscription of our Class to the Current Expense Drive 
of last year was $63, given by eight subscribers. The amount needed 
was raised, but the Seminary faces a similar deficit this year of about 
$15,000, and subscriptions will be gladly received. Make checks payable 
to Princeton Theological Seminary. 

If you wish to know the life-history, or present location, if living, 
of your Seminary chums, of whatever Class, send to Rev. E. H. Roberts, 
Registrar, for the Biographical Catalogue, published in 1932, price, 
one dollar. 


The Secretary plans to bind together all the printed copies of our 
Class History and present them to the Seminary Library. He can send, 
free on request, copies of foi-mer printed reports, especially the Silver 
Anniversary number. 

A Patton anecdote. Apropos of Dr. Patton's recent death in Ber- 
muda at the age of ninety, his Seminary students are recalling many 
amusing incidents of the classroom, in which the good Dr. figured. One 
is going the rounds as follows: some students, shelling peanuts in the 
classroom, got on his nerves. So he remarked, as only he could: "I 
realize that these lectures, to which you are compelled to listen put a 
great strain upon you, and I have no desire to interfere with your 
natural right to seek that refreshment, which will enable you to bear 
up under that strain. But I am a somewhat nervous man, and I must 
admit that the constant popping of peanuts is somewhat disturbing to 
me. I wish, in the future, that you would be willing to substitute some 
less audible means of refreshment — say, sponge cake." 

And now we would — if we only could — like to let Dunnie, Thompy, 
and Gates fill out the page with more rambling stories of the classroom.

On Tuesday, May 18, 1937 the following membc's of the Class of 1890 
assembled at noon at the Prince of Orange Inn, in Princeton, for their 
47th Class Reunion: R. J. Campbell, Doughty, Everitt. Levingood, Mc- 
Millan and Warne. As guests, were Mrs. R,. J. Campbell, Mrs. Doughty, 
Mrs. Everitt, Mrs. McMillan, Mrs. Warne, Mrs. John A. Hartpence, and 
Prof. S. M. Zwemer. 

A telegram of regret at absence through illness, was read from our 
President, Dr. McLeod and Levingood was asked to preside in his absence. 
Other letters were read. The Secretary read his report which was or- 
dered printed. He presented to the Class the comple::e bound copies of 
all our printed Class Histories, one volume of which is kept in the Semi- 
nary Library and the other copy in the hands of the Secretary. This is 
an innovation, we are told, in preserving Class records, no other Class 
having taken such action. 

The Secretary, as also Treasurer, presented the financial report that 
showed receipts from four men, totaling $15.00, leaving a balance of $5.10; 
also, subscriptions to the History Fund from 21 subscribers, totaling $52, 
leaving a balance in this Fund of $6.00. Since making this report, a gift 
of $5.00 has been received from Mrs. Charles E. McGinness. making the 
total balance on hand of $16.10. 

Dr. Zwemer, now retired from Faculty through age limit, but still to 
live in Princeton, being a member of the Class of 1890 of Rutgers Semi- 
nary. New Brunswick, N. J., was made an Honorary Member of the Class, 
ro be included in all future invitations of the Class. It v.-as decided to 
continue our former action to meet every two years, meeting again in 1939. 

The Secretary presented to the Class the Academic hood of Frank 
Hyatt Smith, for use by the Class as needed, the gift of Mrs. Smith. 

The members present were then heard in turn and a most enjoyable 
afternoon was spent in fellowship. The meeting closed .vith prayer by 
Brother Doughty. 

FRANK B. EVERITT. Secretary. 


Since our last meeting, two years ago, six Class members have passed 
on: Fenwick W. Fraser, at Youngstown, Ohio, on Feb. 12. 19"6, a:e 71; 
Kent M. Bull, at Kennett Square, Pa., on April 23, 1936, age 75; William 
P. Gibbons, at State College, Pa., on Aug. 21, 1936, age 77; James T. Mc- 
Lean, at St. Petersburg, Fla., on Nov. 7, 1936, age 77; Hugh Miller, 
at Easton, Pa., on Feb. 2, 1937, age 77; and Albert G. Parker, at Madison, 
Ind., on April 2, 1937, age 74. 

The average age of these six at death was 75. 

FRASER had been ill for some time with a heart affection. On the 
day of his death, he was out for a short walk, and was stricken on the 
street near his home and died soon thereafter. He was Stated Clerk of 
Mahoning Presbytery, and was five times sent to the General Assembly as 
a commissioner. He studied for a year at Yale and then had a Fellow- 
ship year at Harvard. A Nova Scotian by birth, he leaves a widow to 
mourn his going. 

BULL'S death was unusually pathetic. He had long had an invalid 
wife. From nursing his wife, who was very ill, he contracted double 
pneumonia, and died in the hospital a few days after her death, v/hose 
passing he never knew. He had for many years operated a dairy farm. 
The family requested your secretary to make the funeral address, which 
he did. 

GIBBONS was for his years one of the most active of the Cla^s. He 
was teaching Journalism in Penn State, was to be retired last year. 
Stricken with prostate trouble, several visits to the surgeon failed to heal 
and he died in the hospital at Altoona, Pa. Your Secretary called upon 
him only a few weeks before his death, while he lay very weak at his 
home. We enjoyed prayer together. 

McLEAN had been ailing for some time, but continued as best he 
could with his work in St. Petersburg. He, too, died in the hospital. 
While in Florida last winter, we called on Mrs. McLean, who took us out 
to his grave, where we again lifted a prayer for all. She is carrying on 
his work in Gulfport, a suburb of St. Petersburg. 

HUGH MILLER never married and lived alone with his books on a 
by-road near his first charge at Harmony, N. J. I called on him a few 
years ago and found him with his usual happy smile and cordial greeting. 
His death came from broncho-pneumonia, after a week in the hospital 
at Easton, Pa. His niece from Ardmore, Pa., arranged the last services, 
a Methodist pastor having charge. He was laid to rest in the beautiful 
West Laurel Hill Cemetery, in Philadelphia, on the banks of the Sohu; IkiU. 

PARKER'S death was very sudden. He had been visiting a son in 
Memphis, Tenn., and then his son, the President of Hanover College, Ind. 
While there, he developed bladder trouble, that necessitated a cyst^cstomv 
operation at once. He was taken to the hospital at Madison, Ind., and 
seemed to be recovering, when a relapse came and after three days in 
coma, he passed away. He was planning to attend the fiftieth reunion 
of his college class this June in Princeton when he was to receive the 
Class's loving cup for the largest number of grandchildren in the Class. 

ALL of these men were beloved and loyal members of the Class. Thoy 
filled out their years with faithful service and we gladly and heartilv pay 
them the tribute of our love and honor. They will be remembered for 
their untiring devotion to all that is best in life and for their fine spirit 

extPn?^nn'i^.^''''^.^"'i"^"^"^^ helpfulness. To the families bereaved, we 
extend our truest and deepest sympathy and love. 

This leaves the Class Roster as follows: living, 22. deceased, 35 The 

pItrS.hnf S "' ""^^ '''"^^"' ^' '^^- W- «• P- S«^"h now becomes the 
Patnarchus Maximus, a quiet orchardist in New York State, up near 
Buffalo, enjoying life at the ripe age of 77. Wame and Henry Campbell 
are at his hee s in age. the former swinging back and forth between 
Trenton and Florida, while Henry has been bold enough to invite your 
becretary and his wife to be his guests this summer at Lake Tahoe, Cal., 
and we have accepted. He is suffering from cataracts which forbid much 
reading. His operation for this may come this Fall. 

Only eight are still in active service, viz., Gardner, Johnson, Levin- 
good, McMillan, Moore, Remington, Thompson and Trompen. John Mc- 
Millan still keeps a church at high pressure, over 500 being in a recent 
picture of his S.S. Trompen thinks nothing of driving twenty miles each 
way every Sabbath in zero weather to his field. Your Secretary hopes to 
visit him this June. The retirements of late have been. ADAMS, who 
suffered a severe nervous breakdown last year due to the severe climate 
of northern Minnesota, and so retired to become permanent guest, with 
his wife, in the Penney Memorial Homes, at Penney Farms. Fla., near 
Jacksonville. There, they have found most congenial friends, and better 
health and are very happy and contented. We spent very nleasant days 
with them this winter. 

CUMMINGS retires this July 1 to live on in Washington, and lo keep 
his clerkships in Synod and Presbytery. George has completed a colossal 
task of annotating every Greek word in the New Testament and has 
ready for publication some 27 volumes, the work of seven hard years of 
study. As yet, the publisher has not been found to print it, but he is hot 
on some trails. 

JOHNSON, through that fatal age limit of our church as to its mis- 
sionaries and secretaries, was forced to retire last year from his great 
work with the Indians in Dakota, to which he had given his whole life, 
and has taken up work ovfer a small church at Pompey, N. Y., near Syra- 
cuse. NELSON has, after 27 years of hard and constant service with the 
oil men on the Pacific Coast (where he is lovingly known as "Bill" Nel- 
son) retired to live with his son. near Orcutt, Cal. 

Your SECRETARY by mutual agreement, when the Cranbury merger 
v/as effected, has been released from that work, involving over 700 mem- 
bers in 350 families. His church was most generous in their thought and 
kind in their actions. He retires to live in the summer at Rehoboth 
Beach, Del., where he has been entertaining diplomats and college profes- 
sors in his cottage at "so much per." With his wife, he is foolish enough 
to dabble in seashore real estate, and will be glad to inform all interested 
as to where the "best beach in the whole country" is. Incidentally, it 
would be great to have a little colony of old Seminary "cronies" camp 
nearby. The winters may find him contesting with such experts, as 
Wame, on the shuflfleboard courts of Florida. Addiess us always at 
Rehoboth Beach, Del. 

JOHN MOORE is also up against the age rule and must retire from 
active work next year. At present, he inclines then to live near Balti- 
more, where he has a son preaching. 

REMINGTON also enjoyed a flying trip to Florida last winter and 
our paths crossed at Adams's. R. J. CAMPBELL and wife honored us 
with a recent visit at Rehoboth Beach. JOHN McMILLAN and wife ex- 
pect to tour the Northwest and Alaska this svmmer, joining us for a 
week at Lake Tahoe, Cal. BEATTY travels back and forth summerln? 
with his daughter in England, and wintering with his son in Fihode Is- 
land. ALEXANDER says, he cannot retire, and it surely looks so. For 
he is at present the very active President of the Presbyterian Social Un- 
ion at Pittsburgh and has just staged a dinner with 450 guests present. 
He leaves in early July to attend the second meeting of the Universal 
Council on Life and Work, to be held at Oxford, England; and then goes 
to the Ecumenical Conference on Faith and Order in Edinburgh, as the 
representative of the U.P. Church. HEUVER, although retired, keeps 
busy with weekly classes in religious education and in miscellaneous ad- 
dresses. He reads a lot and enjoys good health in Rockford, 111. 

From the Auxiliary Roll, letters were received from Mrs. Eddy, Mrs. 
McGinness, Mrs. Paterson, Mrs. F. H. Smith and Mrs. Parker. A call 
lately on Mrs. Allen found her in fairly good health. 

As no questionnaire was sent out this year, full replies were not 
sought and were not received. We are grateful for those letters that did 
come. We look for more from time to time. Let us keep our contacts 
with ALL our Class families intact, never failing to send to the Class 
Secretary any family item of real interest. Notice of deaths of Class 
members should be promptly sent him! that he may, in turn, notify the 
rest of the Class, Furids are provided for this. It would also be true 
to the spirit of the Class if birthday greetings could be exchanged be- 
tween the living members of the Class. For dates of same, see last print- 
ed report, page 29. ' 

We greet you, one and all, in the name of our one Lord and Master. 

FRANK B. EVERITT, Secretary.
