Murray Anthony Potter.



[September,



able keenness, generous, tolerant, ready
to be interested in everything and every-
body — such a man has dwelt among us,
endearing himself to his associates to a
degree very uncommon even in our Har-
vard community, and, suddenly passing,
has left them with a sense of irreparable
loss, as if a vital part of themselves had
been taken away.

After an acute illness of only a few
days, Murray Anthony Potter, Assistant
Professor of Romance Languages, died
peacefully at his summer house in Lan-
caster, Mass., on May 17, ending an
earthly existence much vexed by physi-
cal ailment but rich in achievement and
in promise. Bom in Clifton Springs, 111.,
in 1871, he spent his childhood and early
youth in California, where his family
took up its abode. There they had a
country ranch and, in the old residential
quarter of San Francisco, a dty home.
He was the oldest of four brothers. Un-
like the rest, he became dissatisfied with
the opportunities for education afforded
by his State, and, after trying the re-
sources of Berkeley, decided, in the face
of protest, to continue his studies at Har^
vard, where he became successively a
Bachelor of Arts in 1895, a Master of
Arts in 1897, and a Doctor of Philosophy
in 1899.

Maturer than most of his contempora-
ries, ripened by wide reading and by
much travel, endowed with exquisite
taste in all things beautiful, an admir-
able musician, alert in thought, rapid
and accurate in work, he won immediate
distinction as a scholar. His linguistic
equipment was unusual; to an extensive
classical training he added some familiar-
ity with Sanskrit; with a fluent com-
mand of Spanish, French, Italian, and
German he combined knowledge of Ru»-
sian and a smattering of many other
tongues. He was inclined to philosophy,
expert not only in music but also in art.



an enthusiastic supporter of all forms of
the drama, a collector of rare books and
choice pictures. His study, in later years,
became a very pattern of perfect aesthetic
harmony attained without detriment to
usefulness.

In literature, his diosen field of ex-
ploration, he was fascinated, on the one
hand, by the vigor and brilliancy of the
New Birth of letters; on the other, by
the deep pathos of popular poetry. To
the former attraction are due his one
published lecture and his many unedited
essays on the Renaissance and an un-
completed volume on Petrarch; to the
latter, a comparative treatment of the
theme of the combat of father and son
(the subject of his dissertation), embod-
ied in 1902 in a book called Sohrab and
RuHem, and an exposition, nearly fin-
ished at the time of his death, of the
heroic part played by the horse in the
narrative verse of many nations. A
paper on this last topic he read before
the Modem Language Association of
America in 1904. Some researches in the
Old French epic and in the legends of the
childhood of Jesus are fortunately pre-
served in print. The greater part of his
investigations, however, never saw the
light; and, fearing that he might perhaps
be neglectful of one side of a professor's
duty, he obtained in 1914-15 a year's
leave of absence for the special purpose
of bringing some of them to completion.
Several reasons combined to make him
slow to offer the public the results of his
labor: he was distrustful of himself, and
conscientiously determined to present
nothing short of hb best; he looked for-
ward to a long lease of time in which to
fill out and perfect the various things he
began; and the abundance of his inter-
ests divided his days among many occu-
pations.

Most of his energy, indeed, was ap-
plied to teaching. While still a student

at Harvard, a youth of ample means, he
lent hb services to the Cambridge Even-
mg High School, in order, as he said, to
gain experience, and there met with
extracMrdinary success, winning both the
attention and the affection of his hetero-
geneous classes. On receiving lus last
degree, he went to Dartmouth as Assist-
ant Professor; but he returned to Har-
vard the next year — the year of his
marriage — and remained here ever
after. To the credit of our students be it
siud that they appreciated not only his
learning and his skill, but likewise his
modesty, courtesy, and devotion; seldom
have the efforts of a teacher been so
gratefully recognized by his pupils. Be-
sides his lectures on the Renaissance,
the pastoral, the humanists, the Latin
writers of the Middle Ages, the troubar
dours, and Petrarch, he conducted two
of the hirgest elementary courses in the
Romance Depa^ment; in his adminis-
tration of them, and equaUy in his prepa-
ration of admission papers in French, he
displayed a practical competence scarce-
ly to have been expected in one of his
artistic temperament. He served the
Department also as its Secretary. Eager
to promote thoroughness and originality,
he founded, in memory of his mother,
three annual prises for essays, two in
Comparative Literature and one in Span-
ish. Learners of Spanish are indebted to
him, furthermore, for his edition of se-
lected sketches by the newspaper humor-
ist Tabooda, whose writings disclose a
surprising a£Snity between Iberian and
the better class of American journalistic
comicality.

In only one respect did he, like many
an eminent colleague, seem to fall below
the full performance of a University
officer's task: he could seldom bring him-
self to attend oral examinations for the
doctorate; not because of indifference,
but because, with the remembrance of



his own ordeal, his participation in the
pains of the candidate amounted to
downright agony. This pardonable
shortcoming troubled him much, but he
was reluctant to explain it, ever bent
on covering up his sensitiveness; for
nothing annoyed him more than to be
thought delicate, nervous, or emotional.
In other ways he made amends. Though,
acoorcting to academic standards, a
wealthy man, intensely fond of sight-
seeing and other recreation, he always
insisted, in spite of precarious health, on
giving more than the customary share
of instruction, and he neglected no op-
portunity to form close personal rela-
tions with his students.

Yet ardent as he was in business and
in play, his greatest delight lay in pri-
vately relieving the distress or increasing
the joy of others. In such benefactions,
as in lus studies and his pastime, his wife,
a daughter of the late Solomon Lincoln,
was a true partner His home will remain
forever enshrined in the memory of his
friends as a fount of cordial, bounteous,
and self-forgetful hospitality; his useful
life, as a triumph of will. He was in very
sooth a gentleman and a scholar.

of the year, and A. H. Evans, '18, was
appointed Mistress for 1915-16.

The first meeting of the Committee on
Resources, a large committee represent-
ing the Radcliffe Associates, Radcliffe
Alumnae Association, RadcIifiFe Union,
Radcliffe Auxiliary, and all the Radcliffe
Clubs, was held on June 22. After a re-
port on the finances of the College by the
Treasurer and discussion, a sub-com-
mittee was appointed by Pres. Briggs
consisting of S. M. Dean, '95, Chairman,
C. A. Harper, *96, and K. M. Thompson,
'96, to consider what measures may be
taken to unify and develop the gifts of
past students of the College.

Radcliffe College has received the fol-
lowing gifts: an Italian coffer of the Re-
naissance period from the Class of 1890,
to be placed in the Ghirlandaio Room in
Agassis House; a silver tray from the
Class of 1896 in memory of their presi-
dent, L. E. Strongman, who died April 9,
1912; $1200 from the Ckss of 1900 for
the Mary Coes Endowment Fund for In-
struction; $1200 from the Class of 1905

Fund; $500 from E. A. Daniell, '95, L. C.
Bolster, and E. P. DanieU, '06, in mem-
ory of their mother, Mary Fifield (Porter)
Daniell, to be used for whatever purpose
the CoUege may see fit, preferably for en-
dowment. The College has also received
$400 additional income from the estate
of Rebecca A. Greene.

"Class Day" was Friday evening,
June 18. Pres. and Mrs. Briggs, Miss
Boody, and the officers of the Senior
Class received the guests in the living
room, while the rest of the Seniors re-
ceived their friends in other rooms in the
college buildings. On Saturday there
were class reunions, the annual Reminis-
cent Show arranged by the celebrating
classes, and, in the evening, a perform-
ance of Prunella on the steps of Agassis
House — a repetition of the last Idler for



the Alumns, the Seniors, and their
guests. At the Baccalaureate Service
Sunday afternoon. Bishop Lawrence
preached the sermon on the text: ** Jo-
seph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful
bough by a well; whose branches run
over the wall." The Radcliffe Choral
Society sang an anthem. The words of
the Baccalaureate hymn were by D. L.
Williams, Sp. On Monday came the Se-
nior Class exotnses in the morning, and
the Senior supper.

The annual business meeting of the
Radcliffe Chapter of Phi BeU Kappa
was held on June 21, at 2.30 p.m. The
following officers were elected: Pres.,
E.N. Buckingham, Ph.D.,'10; vice-pres..
M. N. White, '99; sec., C. B. Shaw, '01.
Four new alumnse members were elected.
It was determined to take a vote by mail
to learn the preference of all the mem-
bers as to the time for the annual exer-
cises and for the business meeting.

The Commencement Exercises were
held in Sanders Theatre on June 23 at
11.30 A.M. Rev. George Hodges, D.D.,
offered the prayer, Pres. Briggs an-
nounced the gifts and the awards of
prizes and fellowships for the year, and a
chorus of former and present students
under the direction of M. H. Hitchcock,
'05, sang. Hon. Henry Cabot Lodge
gave the Commencement address which
is printed on pp. 58 - 64 of the magazine.

Dean Boody then presented the 120
candidates for degrees, which were con-
ferred by Pres. Briggs as follows: 94
A.B.'s, 25 A.M.'8, and 1 Ph.D. Of the
A.B.'s 51 received the degree without
distinction, 28 cum laude (of whom 14
had distinction in special subjects), 14
magna cum laude (of whom 8 had honors
and 6 distinction in special subjects) and
1 eumma cum laude (with distinction in a
special subject). Final honors in Eng-
