in Mansfield, Mass., where he later engaged in the manufacture of flavoring

a member of the Hepublican committee of Ward 11, the Back Bay-Beacon
Hill section of the city, for ten years continuously (1893-19031, when he
■ resigned solely on account of the demands of his business. During this
time be devoted himself with the most painstaking care to the service of the
Iial'ty. He has never held any public office, either elective or appointive,
although there is no doubt that the Republicans of his ward would have
supported him enthusiastically for any office in their gift. During his term
of service he was for three years treasurer of his ward committee and three
years its chairman, and is known by all leading politicians as an exponent
of clean and wholesome politics, and his loyalty to a very wide circle of
friends is second only to his devotion to the cause of good citizenship.

and the Park Street Club of Boston, of which he is an ex-president.

Edwin Trowbridge was taught the trade, of spar making by his father, and was
engaged in business as a mast and spar contractor, first in Waldoboro aiid later
in Thomaston, Me. In his business he w'as an exceptional master, and superior
in his capacity of efficiency and agreeably handling a body of men.

Mr. Trowbridge and his family were members of the Baptist church in
Thomaston, and for several years he sen-ed as one of its deacons. To the world
at large the principal things that conunended tliemselves were his open, square,
hojiorable life with all his fellowmen, his excellent judgment, the result of a
remarkablj' well-balaneed mind, and his kindly treatment of everybody under all
circumstances regardless of his station, wealth, or culture. He was a man of com-
paratively few words, but abounding in good acts and leading a noble life, and was
highly esteemed by his fellow citizens for his sterling worth of character. He
was a member of the Masonic fraternity.

"Mr. Trowbridge set aside, during his life, one tenth of his proiierty for
religious and benevolent purposes at home and abroad. Although that tenth
part increased more rapidly than did the rest of his estate, he never made use of
it for any other purpose than that to which he had first devoted it. He never let
his left hand know what his right hand did, and it was not until after his death
that even his own fiimily knew how great, in proportion to his means, had been
his charities. Both he and his wife were sincere Christians and their lives were
daily given to the service of God in its highest spiritual meaning."
