centered. He received his early education in the juvenile schools of Brook-
lyn, N. Y., and Newport, R. I.,' and at boarding schools in Northampton and
Stockbridge, Mass., taking his final preparation course for College at the
Berkeley Institute, Newport, R. I. He entered Hamilton College, Clinton,
N. Y., September 12, 1861, and graduated therefrom, July 20, 1865, with a
degree of Bachelor of Arts, and in 1868 he received the degree of Master of
Arts from Hamilton College. In January, 1867, he entered the Law School
of the University of the City of New York and graduated therefrom, May

and again in the fall of 1868, and in 1869 he entered the University of Berhn,
Germany, attending lectures more particularly on Roman Law. After three
years in Europe, he returned to the United States and in the fall of 1873
formed a partnership with Charles H. Duell for the general practice of the
law in New York City. This partnership continued until his partner, Mr.
Duell, was appointed United States Commissioner of Patents at Washington,
D. C. During this period, Mr. Tompkins was President of the New York
and Rosendale Cement Company. His business connections were with the
Bankers' Loan and Investment Company of New York City, C. Poyet and
Company, Incorporated, and with the Hudson River Land Company.

Mr. Tompkins married on April 20, 1876, in New York City, Susan Liv-
ingston Ledyard, born February 20, 1844, at Paris, France, who died October
II, 1877, at Newport, Rhode Island, and by this marriage there was no issue.

He was for many years Secretary of the Redwood Library, Newport,
R. L, and a Director of that Library for. over fifty years; and until his death
he was a Director of the Newport Historical Society, and at one time served
as its Vice-President, and for four years as its President. He was a Trustee
of Hamilton College, his alma mater, and served as such for nearly twenty-five
years, being greatly interested in its welfare, serving as a member of its ex-
ecutive committee and a chairman of its library committee, and contributing
largely towards the support of the college. He was interested also in the
welfare of the Tuskegee Institute, and contributed generously towards its
support. He was a member of the Newport Reading Room, the Newport Art
Association and the Newport Casino, and the Newport Country Club. He was
a member and trustee of the West Side Presbyterian Church of New York
City, while his Newport religious affiliations were with the United Congrega-
tional Church, of which body his mother and brother, the late Frederick Tomp-

His tastes were decidedly of a literary leaning, and he was the author of
numerous books and pamphlets, amongst which we may mention : Bibliotheca
Jcffersonia, 1887; Burr Bibliography, 1892; Bibliography of the Works of
George Henry Calvert (Newport, R. L), 1900; Bibliography of the Class of
J865 of Hamilton College, 1^77; The Great Stmmp Fight: a paper read before

culation amongst its members by the Chapter in 1906; Newport Lotteries, a
paper read before the Newport Historical Society, 1912; and various other his-
torical papers, most of which have been put in print.

Mr. Tompkins was a member of the Society of Colonial Wars in Rhode Is-
land, and served as Chancellor and Deputy Governor and Governor of that So-
ciety, and he was also for a time Deputy Governor General for Rhode Island of
the General Society of Colonial Wars. He was Chancellor of the New York
Chapter of the Colonial Order ; a member of the Sons of the Revolution, the
New England Society and of the Mayflower Society ; the New York Bar As-
sociation ; the American Bar Association and the International Bar Association ;
the American Library Association ; the National Municipal League ; the Biblio-
phile Society ; the New York Charity Organization Society ; the Civil Service
Reform Association ; and the American Scenic and Historical Society.

He was elected an Annual Member of the New York Genealogical and
Biographical Society, November 9th, 1894, and was at one time a Trustee of
that Society, and served as its Honorary Librarian for some years. He was
always active in the interests of the Society and a generous contributor to-
wards promoting its material welfare. Mr. Tompkins was a man of notable
attainments and to those who were favored by his friendship, he was a de-
lightful companion, and to all a gracious and lovable gentleman.
