The catalogue of Alumni and Trustees has been prepared with exceeding labor and
great care. It is, however, doubtless, in many respects deficient iu things which only the
parties acquainted with the facts can supply It is earnestly requested, in order that the
next may he complete, that any person able to give information will send it to M. B. Gofl",
Chancellor, Chairman of Committee on Catalogue, at Western University, as soon as possible.

In 1845, the University Buildings were destroyed by fire, after which for a number of
years, 1849-55, all operations were suspended, which fact accounts for the hiatus in list ot
Alumni between 1849-58.
