Amelia Blodgett. daughter of Henry and Louisa (Allen) Blodgett, born
December 6, 1844, in Boston, Mass.

J. Eliot Trowbridge received his early education in the Newton public schools
and private instruction in high school studies. He inherited decided musical
talent, and at the age of fifteen began study of the organ under Dr. Benjamin C.
Blodgett, head of the music department of Smith College, Northampton, Mass.
Later he studied the piano with Prof. Junius W. Hill, at that time at the head
of the music department of Wellesley College. A strong inclination, for music
composition led him to give earl.y and serious attention to harmony, counterpoint
and fugue, and to devote himself to the study of the classics.

Eor more than fort.y years Mr. Trowbridge has been a church organist and
choirmaster in churches in and around Boston, and at the present time holds
this position with the First Methodist Episcopal Church in Newton Centre,
Mass., having a vested choir of men- and boys. He has been with this church

Sons Company in Boston, tlie largest dealers in iiianos, etc., in New England.
For more than twenty years lie has taught music, jiiano, organ, harmony, etc.,
to many students, some of whom have become capable musicians and teachers.
His residence is Newton, Mass.

As early as 1872 Mr. Trowbridge began to publish his compositions and in that
year appeared the first of a long series of works. He has written in large and
small forms, including works for the organ, cantatas, Te Deunis, psalms, anthems,
(pjartets, responses and solos. His most prominent musical compositions
(1872-1907) are: oratorios, "Emmanuel" and "Paul the Apostle"; cantatas,
"Heroes of '76" (operatic), "Peace of Jerusalem," "How Admirable are Thy
Tabernacles," and "Mass in E Major" ; organ music, "Trowbridge Reed Organ
Method," 110 select pieces for church and cabinet organ. He has published 95
anthems, choruses, quartets, solos, duos and trios.

Mr. Trowbridge has served as pianist for the Newton Musical Association and
has organized large choruses to give the standard oratorios. In 1884 he was
elected conductor of the Auburndale Musical Union. He has brought out, with
orchestra, chorus and noted soloists, his own larger works, and in every way
identified himself with the practical exiserience of knowing just what large
chorus organization can accomplish. To this practical knowledge, then, is due
to no slight extent the popularity which Mr. Trowbridge's works have enjoyed for
years, and enjoy now more than ever.*

1871. His first position was with ilr. Cliaiininsi- Wliitalver of Lowell, ilass.,
where his duties were to make plans for mills and other buildings. Because of
ill health, he was obliged to leave there and return home.

!Mr. Trowbridge became an hydraulic engineer of great promise, and would,
doubtless, but for his early death, have soon ranked among the first in his
profession. Most of the drawings for ilr. J. P. FrizelFs articles on hydrostatics
and the hydrostatic press which appeared in "Johnson's Universal Cyclopsedia" iu
1882 were made by him, he being in Mr. Frizell's employ at the time the articles
were written ; the Cyclopedia, however, did not appear until after his death. In
the fall of 1878 he secured a position in the U. S. engineer's office in St. Paul.
Minn., and went there with his young wife. 'While residing there, he contracted
typhoid fever and died that December in Red Wing, Minn.

The following letter was written to his father soon after his death.

"Ensiiieer Office, U. S. Army.

St. Paul, Dec. 11th, 1S78.
Mii. A. TROWBRincE, Boston, Mass.,

Mil dear Sir: I write to tell you how keenly the ilentU of your son was felt hy all con-
nected with this office. Although here but a short time, he had made his marlc as a
zealous, careful, competent assistant. I never met anybody who took up whatever sub,iect
was assigned to him more readily and with more method, and who gave greater promise
of eminence in liis profession.

A day or two before his departure for Red Wing he complained of headache and
asked leave of absence — a request readily granted. As soon as informed of his illness, I
wrote hini, in effect, to take his own time and get well, and not to worry. But his mind
was, I fear, too active for liis body.

With sympathy for yourself and family, and for your son's wife,

I am, very truly yours,

CuAS. .T. Alle.n, U. S. a."

Mr. Trowbridge as an hydraulic engineer was indeed an authority. Besides
his mechanical ability, he was an excellent inusician, composing music for the
piano and organ, both of which he played. He was a fine German scholar, and
also possessed artistic and literary talent to a considerable degree. He was a
man of unusually fine and able character. His control of temper, begini in
boyhood, is said to have been almost perfect. Under all circumstances he was
a gentleman, generous, kind and considerate of others. He was also enibned
with philanthropic principles, having, young as he was, plans for model tenement
houses, and various projects to help the poor and unfortunate,
