12S3. "\ViLLL\M EiGGS Trowbridge (Tillman C."", Stephen r.^°'\ Luther^"^-,
Thom^s'"'^'^, Jolin'^'"'', TJiomas'^'"'-, James'^'""'. Thomas^), bom August 17, 1863, in
Constantinople, Turkey ; resides in Chicago. 111. ; married March 26, 1893, in
Faribault, Minn.. Adeline Ada Wilson, daughter of Eev. Sherman B. and Harriet
C. (Jewett) Wilson, born June 11, 1S71, in Brandon Hill, Jamaica, West Indies.

William E. Trowbridge received his elementary education in England and in
Massachusetts, coming to the United States to attend school in 1878. In 1882
he visited his family in Constantinople. He entered the academic department
of the University of Michigan, of which he was a member from 1883 to 1886,
leaving that department in the latter year to enter the medical department of
the same institution, which he attended until the death of his father in 1888.
He then accepted a position as a teacher in Bordentown (Pa.) Military Institute,
and later taught at Shattuck School in Faribault, Minn. In the summer of
1893, a few months after his marriage, he became associate master of Rugby
School in Kenilworth, HI., of which he became head master a few years later,
and where he remained until 1903. He then was appointed principal of the
Helena, Mont, high school. He continued in charge of that school until the
summer of 1907, when he resigned to take a year for study at the University of
Chicago. He is a member of the University of Michigan chapter of the Delta
Kappa Epsilon fraternity.

The Helena, Mont., Independent of June 5, 1907, pays him the following
tribute :

"In Helena Professor Trowbridge has been a singular and insistent influence for all
that is best in education. He has led his contemporaries with a virile and cleanly knowl-
edge of boy-youth, and every normal child in this community reverences Trowbridge as a
friend, a champion, and a wise director of childhood. For all his talent as a teacher of
juveniles. Professor Trowbridge has brought to his service here the eloquence of a lecturer,
the training of an artist, and the sincerity of a true educator. We envy the town that
gets Trowbridge. To us he is and has been the gentleman of nurture, the scholar, the
practician and the poet all in one. Modesty and i>ower are in him. His spirit in
educational work is as pure and as well qualified as any that can be found in America.

In Mr. Trowbridge will be found the rare, the odd. the new combination of the gentle-
man pedagogue. Which comes first is the question. Mr. Trowbridge will fit in any
wise and modern school or scheme of learning. He is one of the men who have made
education understandable : he is and will be, no matter where he goes, an influence for
the tender, decent theories of broad nurture. Profe.ssor Trowbridge has been one of the
biggest and best influences in the educational life of this town, and we regret his going."
