hoga Building, Cleveland, O.

IMMEDIATELY after graduation I started with Harry Morgan
Ayres, '02, on a trip around the world, which was completed in
thirteen months.

Entered Harvard Law School in the Fall of 1903 and remained
there two years. Commenced work in the summer of 1905 with the
law firm of Henderson, Quail & Siddall, Cleveland. Admitted to
the bar June, 1906. Continued with the same law firm until 1909,
when I went into partnership with Richard Inglis, '03, under the
firm name of Bulkley & Inglis. This firm has had a continuous ex-
istence to the present time, though it has been through several reor-
ganizations. In 1912 the old firm gave place to that of Bulkley,
Hauxhurst, Inglis & Saeger, which was succeeded in 1917 by Bulkley,
Hauxhurst, Saeger & Jamison, and in 1921 by Bulkley, Hauxhurst,
Jamison & Sharp.

My boy Bob is at University School, Cleveland, in the class of
1928. Bill's health is such as to keep him at home. Baby Kathar-
ine is still a baby but growing rapidly and splendidly. Since my
trip around the world, I have had two trips abroad. In 1907 I
spent five months in London, Paris, Berlin and Brussels looking after


patent rights and establishments of European sales organization for
The International Multigraph Company, the foreign distributing
organization for The American Multigraph Company, of Cleveland.
In 1909, on my wedding trip, I revisited Japan, Shanghai, Hong
Kong, and the Philippines.

In 1910 I was elected to the House of Representatives on the
Democratic ticket, from the 21st Ohio District, and I served through
the 62nd and 63rd Congresses. I was a member of the Committee
on Banking & Currency during the formulation and passage of the
Federal Reserve Act. Later I served as chairman of the House sub-
committee on rural credits, which, in collaboration with a Senate sub-
committee, under the chairmanship of Senator Henry F. HoUis of
New Hampshire, perfected the draft of a bill to provide long term
agricultural credits on the amortization plan. This bill, with cer-
tain modifications, was passed by the 64th Congress, and became the
Federal Farm Loan Act of 1916, I was a delegate to the Democra-
tic National convention at Baltimore in 1912, voting for Woodrow
Wilson on every ballot. I was also a delegate to the less interest-
ing convention at St. Louis in 1916. In 1915 I assisted in the organ-
ization of the The Morris Plan Bank of Cleveland, of which I have
been president since it opened in 1916. In 1919 I was instrumental
in organizing the Bulkley Building Company, which has just com-
pleted a building development comprising an office building, theatre
and garage at a cost of $4,000,000.00, situated on Euclid Avenue at
14th Street, Cleveland's new amusement and retail center.

Born at Claremont, N. H., July 5, 1866. Parents: Jason diaries and Edna

Maria Burbank. School: Stevens High School, Claremont, N. H.
Degrees: (c. 1898-1899, 1907-1906) ; LL.B. {Boston Univ.) 1894.
Married: Lily Owen, New Haven, Conn., Oct. 14, 1906.
Died at Boston, Mass., March 4, 1918.

CHARLES E. BURBANK, after leaving college, was enabled to
take a year's trip West, then settling down to practice of
law in Boston. Having plenty of time on his hands, a great
thirst for knowledge, and very little money, he applied to Harvard
College for permission to take special courses, to be paid for
later, the sum to be assured on his personal note. He was refused
the privilege, and became an ardent exponent of equal opportunity
in education, and tried to influence legislation in this direction.

He was a great reader, and many of his first hundred books were
bought at the sacrifice of a meal. His mother has said in his early
youth he would walk twenty miles for the loan of a book he desired.
He became a member of the firm, Storer, Stebbins & Burbank.
He did not enjoy studying from the sense of close application to
some one thing, but enjoyed the broader aspects of his profession.
In 1907 and 1908, he lived in the North End of Boston to study
conditions there. He became a student in the Brackett School
of Social Workers, and associated himself with the various charities.
In 1909 he bought a farm in East Bridgewater, Mass., and proved
his ability to till the soil. He laid out 500 fruit trees with his
own hands, and his flowers, fruit and vegetables were of prize va-


rieties. His neighbors, many of them farmers, often came to him
for advice in agricultural matters. He was fond of children, but
had none of his own. He was vitally interested in war activities,
but was not in the service. Each group of draftees from his own
town was invited to his home, and was instructed by himself and
physicians present on the importance of good moral conduct.

Although taking an interest in government, he took no active
part in politics until the Progressive platform was made. This
had so many of the planks of great interest to him that he entered
politics in 1913, and was elected Senator from the Plymouth
District. Later he advocated the Progressives to the Republican
party, holding to their Progressive principles. He was a mem-
ber of the Platform Committee of the State Republicans in 1915.
In 1916 he was appointed to the office of State Supervisor of Ad-
ministration, and held this office at the time of his death, March
4, 1918. While in the legislature he filed bills for a Judicature
Commission to investigate the advisability of a change in the or-
ganization of the Courts, and to enable students of the poor to
enter colleges of Massachusetts.

Mr. Burbank during his life had accumulated much material
which he intended to have published later. He was writing at the
time of his death the "Autobiography of a Common Man." He
himself realized his lack of initiative to bring to completion his
endeavors in this line. He had a large public service spirit, and in
his life in a quiet way made many converts to a desire for better
government. "Public service as it is, public service as it ought to
be," were his last words.

Born at Waltham, Mass. Parents: Charles S. Burnham. School:

Married: Mae Loretta Reynolds, New York, N. Y., Sept. 11, 1917.
Occupation: Architect; Professor of Architecture.
Address: 303 Eddy St., Ithaca, N. Y.


THE first two years after leaving college were spent traveling in
Europe as a student of architecture on the Robinson and Ap-
pleton Traveling Fellowship. Returning from this I worked a year
at architecture in New York City and Boston. I then won the
Rotch Traveling Scholarship in Architecture in Boston, and spent
two more years studying at Ecole des Beaux arts, and at the Amer-
ican Academy in Rome. During these years I met many Harvard
men, and especially my own classmates traveling about the conti-
nent and England. Since returning from this trip I was for several
years in the office of McKinn, Mead, and White, architects, in New
York, and have since then practiced in my own name.

My main hobby is playing at the 'cello, although I have not
improved since I played in the Pierian Sodality. Making water-
color sketches of landscapes and architectural subjects still absorbs
much of my spare time, and here I may say I have improved since
the days of 1902.

At present and since 1915, I have been at Cornell University
as professor of design, and am practicing architecture in Ithaca.
