** At the suggMtion of President Eliot
the Harvard Alumni Association
branched out in May, 1007, when Mr.
Curtis became associated with E. H.
Wells. They began to create out of a

petfuBCtory Alumni Association aa
organisation which should be of serv^
ice to Harvard men and Harvard
University. In 1007 the organijwtioii
began with but three on the staiF. To-
day there are 15 or more actually en-
gaged in performing this important
work. Among Harvard men and Har-
vard clubs the influence of this asso-
ciation has been felt all over the conn-
try. As a representative of Harvard's
alumni body Mr. Curtis has acquired
among Harvard men and Harvard
Clubs an unusual acquaintance and
the confidence and esteem of a great
many Harvard men. Mr. Curtis has
been business manager of the AUunmi
Weeldp, a prosperous maga s ine which
supports the work of the Harvard
Alumni Association. Mr. Curtis was
at one time instructor in English at
Harvard University, giving courses in
debating and argumentation, which
later led to his coaching sev««l of
Harvard's successful debating teams.
The Greenleaf Merchandising and
Advertising Company is one of the
rapidly growing and aggressive New
England organisations whose broad
outlook upon commercial problems i»
demonstrated by the acquiring of Mr.
Curtis's services. Mr. Curtis will
carry with him the best wishes of i^
Harvard men not only in Boston, but
in other cities where his influmce has
been felt for Harvard's good." It
gives the Secretary great pleasure
thoroughly to endorse (in behalf of the
Class) the good wishes expressed in
this article, and personally to testify
to the splendid spirit that Curtis has
displayed in his work for Harvard.

Henry F. Nash, who died at Lake
George, N.Y., Nov. 25, 1915. He was
born in Cambridge in 1886, a son of
the late Dr. Henry S. Nash. While in
College he was prominent in various
branches of athletic and social life. He
played class and second team basebaU,
was a member of the Theta Delta Chi
Society, and in his Senior year was
president of the Glee Club. After
graduation he was with the Doten-
Dunton Desk Co. of Boston until
1913 and during that time suffered
intermittently from an illness with
which he became afflicted in 1908.
After 1913 he moved to Lake George,
N. Y., where he has since been engaged
in the real-estate business and in doing
secretarial work. He was married in
February, 1914, at Lake George, to
Miss Helen Bean, who survives him.

The first set of notices to collect
information for the third Class Report
have been mailed. It is hoped that
replies will be prompt and numerous.
This particular set of notices has the
unique feature of freedom from any
request for financial support, and for
this reason should be received with
open arms by the entire Class. Our
" lives " since our graduation form the
most important piece of information
asked for. Do not hesitate to make
the account as long as possible. It is
better to have to edit this material
than to have it so short and general
as to lack individuality. — The Class
held its sixth annual winter dinner at
the Hotel Lenox, Saturday, Jan. 22.
About 110 members attended and all
of them felt it was the most successful
dinner that we have had for some
time. G. S. West acted as toastmaster

and kept the spirits of all at the high-
est pitch. The dinner was so success-
ful that it seems a pity that many
more of the Class who reside within
a short distance of Boston and who
could easily have attended, did not do
so. This dinner marks the opening
gun of the Sexennial campaign and
no one can deny that the above-
mentioned gun made a creditable


37 Warren St., Brookline.
At the very kind invitation of the
New York 1911 men, about twenty of
our Classmates from Boston and vi-
cinity spent New Year's Eve in New
York. There were in all sixty men who
sat down to dinner in a private dining-
room of the Harvard Club. A very
delicious dinner had been planned by
Richard Whitney and Arthur Sweet-
ser, both of whom deserve a great deal
of thanks from the Boston contingent.
W. S. Seamans was toastmaster and
did a very creditable job, although it
was not at all difficult to put life into
the party; on the contrary, it was
sometimes necessary to raise a hand in
gentle protest to the more apprecia^
tive element of the gathering. As may
be imagined no effort was made to
deliver any very serious addresses,
although Mr. Corcoran told us of the
progress of the insurance fund, and
was later seconded by the Secretary.
Songs and stories by the humorists,
accompanied by three colored musi-
cians, composed the greater part of
the entertainment, and it was a late
hour when the party finally broke up.
The Secretary wishes to thank the
New York men, on behalf of their
Boston classmates, for a very pleasant
and successful occasion and to say

that we hope we shall have the pleas-
ure of returning the compliment in the
near future. — Leonard Cushman is

17 Pre Ata CUrca
Lyon CBrettaux), Franc;
OU. i, 1916.

Dear Mrs. Farnsworth:

At the request of your son, I am to
say with real pain that he was severely
wounded on the afternoon of the 28th
of September last, on the 4th day of
the battle of Champagne, a little in
front of the German wire entangle-
ments of the second line before the
Fortin de Navarin. A large number
of machine guns were on the right
flank, and in front, where they were
concentrating their fire on the leading
files of the attacking party, and no
stretcher-bearer could possibly reach

the spot where he was lying. Toward
dusk the column was still being held
up. I left for the rear about this time,
but all I could do, I regret to say, was
to ask medical people to go up if pos-
sible. As one who has seen a great deal
of him here, I would venture to men-
tion how much his coolness under
fire has on occasions helped to steady
the section, and how his indifference to
danger prompted him at all times to
volunteer for the most dangerous
posts. Under a withering rifle and
machine-gun fire, he denied my
first word and dug a hole for me, to
which act I probably owe my life. Up
to the present, no fresh information
of him has come my way, but I shall
always be glad to furnish any previous
news. May I express my profound
and sincere sympathies.

Yours very truly,
