Occupation : Physician.

Address: (home) 7 Lowell St., Cambridge, Mass.; (business) Care of Har-
vard University, Cambridge, Mass.

GRADUATED from the Harvard Medical School in 1905, and
after an internship at the Massachusetts General Hospital I
began the practice of medicine in Boston in 1907. From 1907 to
1914 my activities v/ere those of most young internists in a medical
centre like Boston, practice, teaching, hospital work, and research.
In 1914 I was made the Henry K. Oliver Professor of Hygiene, a
new chair in the University. I then gave up private practice but
continued my connection with the Massachusetts General Hospital
where I am now Associate Chief of the M,edical Services. I am
in charge of all matters relating to the health of the students. The
University makes up into quite a sizable community, and I am
kept fairly busy trying to keep the young men from requiring
the services of my medical brethren. The war was a very dis-
turbing incident. Being now out of the army I can state without
fear of court-martial that I was "consultant in medicine" with the
Third Corps not "consultant in surgery," as given in General
Pershing's citation. Since the war I have been trying to forget
the war, make up for lost time, and to enjoy a young and growing
family. My hobbies are my family and my interest in Public
Health. My travels are conventional, and consist of occasional
trips to Europe, mostly, but fortunately not exclusively, in con-
nection with the war, and several trips to the Pacific Coast.
I am a member of the State Council of Public Health of Mas-


sachusetts, which is the only elective or appointive public office
I have ever held.

CHARLES EDWARD LEIGHTON, in 1904, went to New York
City as assistant superintendent of a building in process of
construction. Becoming interested in a device that he hit upon
for putting a lock without visible bolt or screw on a safe, he with-
drew from the building business, got out a patent, "The Leighton
Lock Protector," formed a stock company, engaged salesmen, and
undertook to put his invention on the market. He eventually got
the Navy Department at Washington to adopt it on several of the
government safes. Excess of worry and indoor life induced con-
sumption. He left New York for Colorado to regain health. But
he succumbed to the affliction in August, 1908. His body was
brought back to Boston, and interred in the cemetery at Forest Hills.

Co., of which I am still a member.

Music, books, and Oriental art, are my hobbies. My eldest

served as organist in several churches in Springfield, and vicinity.
Although I cannot say these twenty years have been thrilling
they have been interesting, most interesting.

Mountain climbing is my hobby. I enjoyed European trips in

Occupation: Teacher.

Address: (home) 346 Convent Ave., New York, N. Y.; (business) College
of the City of New York, New York, N. Y.

IN February, 1903, I was appointed a member of the teaching staff
of the College of the City of New York. I have taught there
continuously since then, and I am now an assistant professor of
mathematics. Despite my holding a baccalaureate degree from
Harvard, I decided that I still had a modicum to learn, and accord-
ingly pursued graduate courses in mathematics at Columbia. In
February, 1916, that university awarded me the degree of Doctor
of Philosophy. Since September, 1916, I have been assistant
director of the evening session of the College of the City of New
York. The enrollment in the session, which includes a college
of liberal arts and science, and schools of commerce, education,
technology, and industry, is over six thousand. The students,
practically all of whom work during the day and many of whom
are candidates for degrees or diplomas, vary from young men and
v/omen, recent graduates of high school, to grandfathers. On the
roll of students, I once noticed the name of a "Harvard Ph.D."
Harvard men must not blame me for permitting this indiscretion.

Excluding talking, my principal amusement in life appears to
be motoring. During my novitiate as an operator of a motor car,
and because of an instinctive aversion to automatic action, unac-
companied by postulate, ratiocination, and conclusion, I kept the
members of my family in a state of nervous terror. Several young
nephews and nieces still speak of the harrowing days when their
uncle was learning to drive. I have nevertheless done a fair
amount of touring, and I am now considered, by my wife, a satis-
factory operator.

War Service: As a member of the faculty of the College of
The City of New York, I was engaged in teaching the members of
the Students' Army Training Corps, a unit of which existed at the
College during October and November, 1918.

I WAS trying to forget the task of writing my history because I do
not wish to present a too glowing account of my past ten
years and also I am very much afraid that if I really do the job of
writing my biography, it would be too pessimistic or too optimistic,
possibly the latter.

Since the last report, I have had three new volumes added to my
list of publications, the most recent being "Economic Development
of the United States," a colossal affair of some six hundred and
seventy pages. I expect the stride of education to be advanced more
than a century by the study of this volume. My other publication is
"Problems of Reconstruction" in which in a most notable way, I
attempt to advise the world wise statesmen how to readjust the dis-
torted world. Then, in another volume entitled "History of the
Commerce of the Interior" I have attempted to be scholarly. You
will notice the qualification, but at least the volume has all the ear-
marks of a scholar in as much as the footnotes are filled with in-
numerable references which no one will ever be able to find.

>h f^tmv WtiUmmn Locke

Born at Cambridge, Mass., Nov. 16, 1880. Parents: Warren Andrew, Mad-
eline (Weidemann) Locke. School: Cambridge English High School,
Cambridge, Mass.

Degree: S.B. 1902.


Died at New York, N. Y., April 7, 1905.

FROM boyhood up, Henry Weidemann Locke had a most bright,
cheerful and lovable disposition. He had a fondness for
mechanical studies and after graduating from the English High
School in Cambridge, he entered the class of 1902 at Harvard, tak-
ing the scientific courses. He distinguished himself in his studies
and graduated with a "cum laude." He was president of the
Electrical Club during his senior year. In athletics he entered
the contests in running, hurdling and football, being a member
of the University squad. After graduation he took a position in
the office of Stone and Webster, and the next year he was sent by
the firm as assistant in their electrical plant at Dallas, Texas. The
following year, through the recommendation of the late William
H. Baldwin '85, president of the Long Island Railroad, he ob-
tained a position in the ofiice of the Church, Westinghouse Com-
pany in New York. He was stricken with scarlet fever and died,
April 7, 1905, after an illness of a few days. Those who had
been associated with him sent their testimony of his devotion and
enthusiasm in his work and how he had endeared himself to all
who knew him. The following year the annual "Henry Weidemann
Locke Scholarship" was established at Harvard in his memory by
the Misses Houghton, and members of his family.


Born at Somerville, Mass., Dec. 28, 1878. Parents: William, Annie (Short-
well) Lodge. School: High School, Newton, Mass.

Degree: A.B. 1902.

Married: Anna Tyrrell, Brooklyn, N. Y ., Nov. 28, 1906. Children: Wil-
liam Brewster, Aug. 17, 1907; Harold Tyrrell, March 29, 1909; Cathleen,
Oct. 12, 1911 (died Oct. 13, 1911).

Address: 375 Cabot St., Newtonville, Mass.

FROM 1902 to 1906 I knocked around different contract and
mining jobs in Western States and Mexico. Have been em-
ployed in charge of mines from 1906 to 1916 in Canada. During
the War I was in employment and welfare work for steel plant


and collieries in Nova Scotia. Returned to the United States in
1920, and have worked in several places ranging from construction
superintendent to teaching Americanization classes in night school.
Member: Masonic Fraternities.


Born at Newton, Mass., Feb. 26, 1880. Parents: Charles Wing, Harriet
Francis (Cole) Loring. School: Hopkinson's School, Boston, Mass.

Degree: A.B. 1902 (1903).

Married: Marcia Graves, Pasadena, Cal., Oct. 20, 1911. Children: Con-
stance Howard, Nov. 13, 1916; Howard Cole, Oct. 9, 1918.

Occupation: Insurance.

Address: 36 Arlington Road, Wellesley Hills, Mass.

AFTER leaving College I discovered a vacancy in the transfer
department of the Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Company.
The officers liked my looks I guess because I had no trouble in ob-
taining the position. After working there for the better part of
ten years, I thought it better to change to outdoor work as the in-
side confinement in the bank did not improve my health. Accord-
ingly I resigned my position, received a clean bill of health and be-
came a free agent. After several months of good loafing I hap-
pened upon a friend who said that he was going around the world
and wanted me to come along, but did not offer to pay expenses.
Well I thought over the proposition and decided to take the trip. I
spent nearly a year on that trip and visited France, Italy, Egypt,
Ceylon, India, Burma, China, Japan, etc., returning to United States
of America by way of the Pacific, arrived in California and met a
young lady in Pasadena, who later became my wife.

The first two years of our married life were spent in Concord,
Mass., during which time I went into insurance. I got together
enough cash to take a belated honeymoon. We went on a Medi-
terranean trip in 1913, visited the Riviere, Greece, Egypt, Turkey,
etc., so taking everything into consideration I have travelled more
than the average person. My home has been in Wellesley Hills
during the last ten years and I have two very nice children who en-
joy the outdoor life of the country. I have never entered into
politics, nor held any public position, nor can I remember of do-
ing anything in the literary line. I have no special hobbies, but
enjoy all forms of outdoor and indoor sports such as baseball, ten-
nis and bowling, and have spent considerable time playing these
