EXPLANATORY NOTICE.



.*W\yN>\.»\Aw<V^"\/W~-



The present catalogue of the Alumni and other graduates of Columbia College
is the seventh which has been published since the re-organization of the College
under its present title in 1787. The earher of these publications were not issued
periodically. With the fifth, published in 1865, there was commenced a series de-
signed to be continued triennially. In this, also, the attempt was for the first time
made to indicate the professions or occupations of the graduates, and to present a
record of the honors, academic, civic, or military, which have been conferred upon
them. Such an attempt, in the absence of any written record regularly kept at
the College or elsewhere of matters of this nature, could not but be, to a certain
extent, unsuccessful ; and accordingly in the issuing of the catalogue of 1865 no
credit was claimed for that publication on the score of perfection or completeness.
The publication was avowedly made, in the form adopted, quite as much in the
hope of eliciting, by means of the interest it might excite, additional information
in regard to the personal history of the graduates, as of giving a permanent form
to the information already obtained. This hope has not been wholly disap-
pointed. A number of the Alumni of the College have kindly contributed
important additions to the knowledge which had been previously gathered in
regard to members of many of the earlier classes ; and in consequence of this
valuable assistance, the present edition of the catalogue, though sdli imperfect,
will be found to exhibit a sensible improvement on those which have gone belore.

Copies of this catalogue will be sent, as in 1865 and in 1868, to all the living
Alumni whose residences are known. Those who may not receive it may be
assured that the omission is owing only to want of information as to their proper
addresses. They will be promptly supplied, on application, by post or otherwise,
to the President, at the College.

^Notwithstanding the considerable success which has attended the eiforts made
to supply the deficiencies of former publications, the imperfections which will
doubtless be detected in the present one can hardly fail to be numerous. This



EXPLANATOKY NOTICE.



prefatory note cannot, therefore, be better concluded than by once more repeat-
ing the request earnestly made on former occasions, of every graduate into whose
hands the catalogue should fall, that he would communicate to the President, or
to Professor Van Amringe, at the College, any information which may serve to
improve it in future editions ; completing first his own record, should he find it
deficient, and adding any important facts within his knowledge, which the cata-
logue does not contain, in regai'd to any other graduate or graduates.
