York City, except for the year 1918 that I spent in the Army.
In 1908 I moved my home from Brooklyn, N. Y., to New Canaan,
Conn. This change from city to real country life was a good one,
both for myself and my family.

I have interested myself in local politics a little in New Canaan,
and for the past three years have been a member of the Board of
Warden and Burgesses of that town, and also a member of the
Park committee. In athletics, I still keep up a great interest, and
am ready to defend my title of class tennis champion which I
won in the junior year. My son, John, who is now attending
Kent School, hopes to be in the Class of '29 at Harvard, and bids
fair to outdo me as one of the great base ball pitchers in the
Leiter cup series. My daughter, although but eight years old,
is already a staunch supporter of all the Harvard teams.

Occupation: Educator.

Address: 323 S. Bonnie Brae St., Los Angeles, Calif.

MY father being a minister of the old school in the Presbyterian
denomination, and it being a tradition in such circles that
every minister's family should supply the church with a minister,
I was elected to the work. I attended the Reformed Presbyterian
Seminary, Pittsburg, Pa., for three years, and followed that up
with a postgraduate year at Princeton Theological Seminary. But
while down in the jungle matching my wits against John Calvin's,
I couldn't resist the lure of the University, and switching my course
got my Master of Arts. The Seminary, loath to see a good man go,
clapped the B.D, on me three years later. (This is to explain why
I have too many degrees.)

In 1906 I accepted a call to a congregation at Waukesha, Wis.,
but resigned in less than a year to accept the presidency of Geneva
College, an institution which my father had built up, devoting
eighteen years of his life, thereto. For nine years I brooded over
that small flock of hopefuls, teaching, admonishing and helping in
their love-making (for it is co-ed). At length the urge of scholar-
ship swelled to such proportions that I resigned the presidency and


made for Harvard University in search of my doctor's degree. As
I was leaving, however, a neighboring college clapped on me a D.D.
(Thus the count grows).

At Harvard (1916-1917) I labored at my studies and assisted
Professor Holcombe in Gov. 6b. When we had passed the entire
class save one (the war fever being on) I, too, went across as a
volunteer in the Norton-Harjes Ambulance Corps. I drove a car
on the French front, near Saint Quentin, for six months and then
on the Italian front, in the mountains of the Trentino, for one year,
getting to be vice-commander of section, and receiving the Italian
War Cross.

Returning to France, I studied French Political Theory at the
Faculty of Law, University of Paris, and at the Faculty of Law, Uni-
versity of Bordeaux, for one year and a half. At Bordeaux I
worked under the personal supervision of Dean Leon Dguit. Re-
turning to the United States in 1920, I finished my work at Harvard
University and was granted a doctor's degree in Political Science,
June, 1921. The Winter of 1921-1922 I have spent in the sunny
southland of California, writing a little and getting ready for the
next onslaught. During the Great War I contracted a bad case of
what laymen call rheumatism and physicians call something else,
but whatever the name, it got me right. I am now much improved
in health.

I have traveled in England, France, Italy and Spain, going as
far south as Sicily. All together I spent three years abroad.

The Harvard men I met in the Great War held up their end very
well, being distinguished for manliness, culture, devotion to duty
and courage. During 1918 a group of Harvard Freshmen were
sent over to Italy to drive ambulances along the Piave. Non-col-
lege men poked some fun at them, but the lads came through with
colors flying. It is easy to laugh at a Harvard man; but it's mighty
hard to down him.

War Service: Volunteer in the Norton-Harjes Ambulance
Corps, June 1917; drove Fiat cars supplied by the French Govern-
ment and served the French troops, near Saint Quentin for six
months. In 1918 drove Fiat cars supplied by the American Red
Cross in Italy, located in the Trentino but rendered some service
along the Piave; was promoted to vice-commander of section, and
was decorated with the Italian War Cross for bravery under fire.
Never served with American troops.

Born at Chicago, III., July 9, 1874. Parents: James Andrew, Sarah Cath-
erine {Stoddard) Gibson. School: Phillips Exeter Academy, Exeter,

Degrees: A.B. 1902; A.M. 1904.

FOR the first two years after graduation I was instructor in
mathematics and physics at Rock Ridge Hall, Wellesley Hills,
Mass., and at the same time worked in the Graduate School, receiv-
ing the degree of A. M. in 1904. The following year I was assistant
in chemistry in Harvard College and Radcliffe. For the next two
years I was instructor in Chemistry at the Case School of Applied
Science in Cleveland, 0. In the Fall of 1907 I became instructor
in analytical chemistry at the University of Missouri at Columbia,
Mo. In 1912 I was made assistant professor of analytical chemistry
and director of the chemical laboratories. I held this position till
June, 1919, but I was on leave of absence for overseas from August,
1917, to April, 1919. I returned from overseas with something
of a distaste for the routine of the classroom, and, therefore, in
June resigned to enter the work of Community Service. I left
them in October, 1920, to take up the work of Chamber of Com-
merce organization with the American City Bureau. This work
kept me traveling and away from my family all the time, so that
I have recently resigned to enter the life insurance field in order
to be at home.

I suppose you might say that my hobbies are auction bridge
and golf, but I do not ride them very hard. My travels, except
for my service overseas, have all been for business purposes.
During my service with Community Service and the American City
Bureau I visited almost every state in the Union except those west
of the Rockies.

sional studies as violinist on entering Harvard in 1898, when
he was given violin instruction by Felix Winternitz, under the
general direction of Franz Kneisel for two years. He then went
to Vienna and graduated second in his class at the Conservatory of
Music. He studied under such masters as Jakob Griin and Arnold
Rose. At the annual graduating exercises of the Vienna Conserva-
tory, he played the Tschaikovski concerto with orchestral accompani-
ment. He then entered upon his career as a soloist, his ability
as an artist being attested by flattering comments from the great art


centers of Europe — Munich, Vienna, Berlin and London. The Ger-
man critics acclaimed him "a virtuoso of the noblest type, with
splendid technique and a large and beautiful tone." While abroad
he played for His Royal Highness Archduke Leopold Salvator of
Austria at the special request of the Archduke, who had publicly
honored the young artist and received him in audience. After his
return to America he filled engagements in Washington, D. C, New

College, Hanover, N. H.

THE first two years after graduation I spent in Cambridge, con-
tinuing graduate work in geology. In 1904 I went out to
Evanston, 111., where I taught geology four years at Northwestern
University. Was called to Dartmouth College in 1908 to take the
professorship in geology left vacant by Charles Hitchcock, then
retiring after forty years of service. Have now — in fourteen years
become a confirmed resident of New Hampshire, with a wife and
two boys to go hiking, camping, skiing and canoeing with; and the
finest kind of environment, both in the college commimity and the
hill country.

My biggest hobby is skiing. Have given considerable time to
development of the Dartmouth Outing Club, and particularly in
recent years, to organizing the ski practice for Freshmen. During
the Summer I usually put in full time as consulting geologist for
the State Highway Department, which combines pure science with


practical road problems, and business with pleasure. The White
Mountains are my unofficial headquarters and outdoor life, more and
more, the only life I care to live. My wife and two boys have like
interest, and we, are content to limit our contact with city and con-
centrated society to annual trips to Boston during the April vacation,
the only two weeks in the year when Hanover is uninhabitable.

War Service: On April 8, 1918, was appointed U. S. A. General
Staff, Military Intelligence Division, as Captain, in charge of map-
room at office of Chief of Staff, U. S. A., Washington, D. C, and
held this position until Dec. 31, 1918. My duties consisted in
gathering and promptly posting on maps the latest official and un-
official information from all battlefronts, at the office of the Chief
of Staff; in supplying official answers to questions covered by
cablegrams received, (to Chief of Staff, Secretary of War and other
officials authorized to receive such information) ; in aiding the Chief
of Staff and others in work with press officials, member of tonnage
conference, military committees of House and Senate, etc.; in
general, work as map expert.
