FROM November, 1914, to March, 1915, I was with the American
Ambulance Service in France. I belonged to the Massachusetts
Volunteer Militia and held the following offices successively: Sec-
ond Lieutenant, First Lieutenant, and Captain of Troop B, First
Squadron Cavalry, up to June 19, 1916, when I joined the Massa-
chusetts National Guard as Captain of Troop B, First Massachu-
setts Cavalry. We were ordered to El Paso, Ft. Bliss, Tex., June
26, 1916, and returned and were mustered out of Federal Service
on November 18, 1916.

War Service: Having resigned from the National Guard in
February 1917, to go to New York for my firm, Hornblower and
Weeks, I had to go to a Training Camp to get back my commission.

I joined the second Plattsburg Training Camp in August and
was commissioned Captain of Field Artillery in November. I
joined my regiment, 351st Field Artillery, 167 F. A. Brigade, 92nd
Division (colored), early in December. In January, 1918, I was
sent to the school of fire at Fort Sill, Okla., where I had at one time
the distinction of being the oldest living undergraduate, and though
the "canning board" of that institution was most efficient I suc-
ceeded in getting back to my Regiment without reproach, after fifteen
weeks work at what was a ten weeks' course.

The regiment went abroad in June and returned the following
February 1919 (my particular Battery having had eleven days ser-
vice in Bois-le-Pretre, north of Pont-a-Mousson on the Moselle
River) I was mustered out Feb. 26, 1919, at Camp Meade, where I
first joined the Regiment. I went back to my old job and am still
at it, representing my firm on the Floor of the New York Stock
Exchange of which I have recently been made a Governor.

My children are growing up, — ^the eldest is eighteen. I don't
travel much except back and forth between Boston and New York.
I've done no civic or National Service except to vote and pay as
small an income tax as possible. I have no general remarks to
make, nor have I published anything, anywhere, anytime.

FOR twenty years I have been a teacher. During the school
year 1902-1903 I taught sciences in the High School at Dan-
vers, Mass., and for the two years following I taught in the Pun-
chard School of Andover. In the Summer of 1904 I worked with
a field party in geology in the Black Hills and in Wyoming, under
the leadership of Professor Jaggar. In May, 1905, I was appointed
assistant in geology, Harvard University, but decided to remain
in secondary school work. From Andover I went to Bordentown
Military Institute, Bordentown, N. J., where I was teacher of sci-
ences for one year. From 1906 to 1908 I was assistant principal
of Woburn, Mass., High School, and was then principal of that
School, until 1916. From June, 1916, until November, 1919,
I was principal of Swampscott, Mass., High School. Since
1919 I have been Head Master of Bordentown Military Institute.

During the year 1913-1914 I did graduate work in Education at
Boston University, and later I studied in the College of Business
Administration of the same institution. For two years I was a
member, and Secretary, of the Committee on the Junior High
School of the High School Masters' Club of Massachusetts. The
report of this committee was published by Ginn & Co.

FOR the first two years after leaving College I served the Lake
Superior Smelting Co., of Houghton, Mich., as chemist ac-
quiring some knowledge of the copper mines in Michigan. This
acquaintance with copper served as preparatory to joining the
firm of Paine-Webber and Co., of Boston, in 1905. Since then I
have been associated with the above firm in Boston and for the
last nine years as manager of their Detroit ofiice. The main part of
my business life has been connected with this city. The develop-
ment of the automobile interests in Detroit has been the develop-
ment of our business in this city.

To break the business life I have devoted most of my time for
amusement to golf when at home, and to hunting and fishing while
on vacations.

Member: Detroit Athletic and Detroit Golf Clubs; The Play-

Degree: (c. 1898-1901.)
Died at South Berwick, Me., Feb. 11, 1902.

GILBERT HAVEN LUCE died after a lingering illness of nearly
two years, within a few months from the time he was to have
realized the great ambition of his life — a degree of A. B. from
Harvard College. His father was Rev. Israel Luce, a Methodist
minister of the Maine Conference, at one time Presiding Elder
of the Portland District; his mother, who survives her husband, is
Alice Elizabeth Luce, now residing at Old Orchard, Me. Gilbert
Haven Luce attended the Butler and Portland High Schools in
Portland, Me., and fitted for college at Berwick Academy, South
Berwick, Me., where he was graduated with the highest honors


of his class. The combination of hard study and his efforts
to help himself through college left him in too weak a condition
successfully to fight off the attack of Bright's disease which seized
him in his third year in college. He was obliged to leave in
April, 1901. He had intended to enter the Harvard Law School
after college graduation, but during his long sickness he felt
that if he lived he would enter a theological school and study for
the ministry.

fense, for six months, from May to November, 1917, and served
as secretary and treasurer of committee for three months. The

AT the time I graduated from College and returned to my home
in Chicago, one of the Chicago manufacturers was severely
criticizing the college graduate as a business asset, ranking him at
about zero in industry. Nevertheless, in December, 1902, our grad-
uation year, I obtained a position with the wholesale merchandising
house of Marshall Field & Co. After a year's work there, which was
really an interesting course in merchandising, I was finally taken
into my father's business, the manufacture and selling of custom
made clothing. On account of my father's death in 1908, I was
held in his business for a longer period than I had planned. Dur-
ing this time, however, I assisted in the organizing and writing of
the constitution of the National Association of Clothing Dealers'
and served as president for two terms. I spent most of my efforts
in developing ideas for advertising our products; formed bureaus
for the mutual exchange of credit information among the merchants
and finally started the association on a cost-keeping system, which
they have since developed in a large way that has been very
useful to the various individual members.

A good deal of this work took me away from my business. In
fact, I travelled through the country in all the big cities from the


Mississippi River east to Boston and when this two-year period
ended it was very hard for me to return to the routine of the
business I was in. So, when many adjustments were being made
in this country at the time of the European war, and I had the
opportunity of going into the National City Bank of New York
City, I was very glad to make the change. After a short period
in the bank, I made up my mind to go into the investment banking
business and through the kind offers of our classmates Charley
Schweppe and B. Wendell, I was taken into the Chicago ofl&ce of
Lee, Higginson & Company, where I have been since January, 1918.
and at this time am one of the members of the selling department.
One of the interesting features of this position is the fact that I have
kept in rather close touch in the last few years with our Class, and
also Boston and Cambridge.

I think my hobbies could be expressed mostly in the pleasure I
take in the vacation months in outdoor sports. I have consistently
kept up swimming. I enjoy touring through the country in a
motor and I am only impatient of the fact that the roads are not
opened up fast enough so that I can cover the western part of this
country as thoroughly as I have the eastern states. I played ten-
nis until the past few years when I have taken up golf — a slower
and less strenuous game for the spare time I have for playing.
For other hobbies — I still have my interest in economic subjects
and I have taken a few courses in the graduate school of the
University of Chicago in the last few years. It is interesting to
find out in connection with these courses, that the world has moved
and a few things have happened since we graduated in 1902. I
have often wished that Harvard had an extension department that
we could use on various subjects we are interested in.

My two boys are both developing interest in football games and
track sports. One of them is very much interested in rowing, so that
undoubtedly he has an ambition for the crew in later years. I
think that the only difficulty that the boys see in their own minds
in regard to athletics, is that the older one wonders how he can hold
down the job of captain until his brother, who is eighteen months
younger, can step into his position. Otherwise, they feel assured
of the fact that they will have no difficulty in working into the vari-
ous teams.

War Service: During Third, Fourth, and Victory loans I was
in the headquarters organization of the Seventh Federal Reserve
District locality in Chicago, 111., and during the Victory loan was
also a member of Four Minute Men Organizations.

Member: University, Harvard, and Bond Mens' Clubs, Chicago.

Del. The bank has been quite successful, and is the only one in the
