PREFATORY NOTE

THIS fourth edition in English of the General Catalogue of Bow-
doin College and the Medical School of Maine aims to give
with greater fulness than its predecessors the residences and occupa-
tions of all who have received degrees from the institution and of all
who have served as officers or teachers. Effort has been made to
mention service in the army and the navy, in State legislatures and
in Congress, election or appointment to political and judicial offices,
and the holding of the presidency of State and national societies.
Academic degrees are given with dates and the names of institutions
conferring them. To avoid, however, the constant repetition of the
word Bowdoin, it has been consistently omitted in places where it can
be clearly understood, viz., in connection with degrees and profes-
sorships held in this institution.

In order to confine the subject matter of over sixty-seven hundred
paragraphs to a reasonable number of pages, it has been necessary
to use freely cross references and abbreviations. The latter are either
so obvious or so customary in catalogues of this character that no list
of them is printed. Much more regretted by the compiler was the
necessity of omitting the record of many positions held by graduates
which would illustrate the influence and esteem they have won in
their respective communities. Here the temptation to deal fully with
the living was also checked by inability to deal fairly with the dead
in similar particulars.

It was found inexpedient to print post office addresses in this
volume. They can now be obtained separately in the pamphlet issued
in February 1912. It is hoped that revised editions of this address
list will be issued in alternate years.

The academic alumni are arranged by the classes to which they be-
longed while undergraduates, although in some cases the bachelor's
degree was not conferred till a later period. In a very few instances,

former undergraduates who received an honorary, but not the bache-
lor's degree, are placed in their respective classes. The degree of
Bachelor of Science, rather than that of Bachelor of Arts, was given
at graduation to fifty-nine men in the classes from 1874 to 1882 in-
clusive, and to five men in the classes of 1901 and 1902. The subse-
quent action of the Trustees and Overseers in conferring the degree
of Master of Arts, in course, upon several of the former group, and a
special vote passed in 1904 in regard to the latter group, have so
established the equality of these degrees as regards these particular
individuals, that it has not seemed needful to distinguish them from
their classmates.

In order to secure accuracy in the matter of dates and the latest
information in respect to residence and occupation, over a thousand
letters have been sent to as many graduates since the printing of this
catalogue was commenced in February. The compiler expresses his
thanks to all who have answered these letters and at the same time
his regret that many replies were received too late to find place ex-
cept in the Additions and Corrections.

The writer takes this opportunity to acknowledge his great indebt-
edness to numberless correspondents of recent years, to various mem-
bers of his library staff, and in particular to the assistant librarian
whose technical skill and painstaking and untiring labors have made
this volume a publication of the library rather than of the librarian.

Hubbard Hall,
June 5, 1912.
