Harvard Clubs. — J. Arthur Beebe.

HABTABD CLUB OP BOSTON.

J. ARTHUR BEEBE.

The following memorial of J. Arthur
Beebe C69), baa been sent to all mem-
bers of the Club:

At the close of the Annual Meeting of
the Harvard Club of Boston, held on
March 15, 1916, the President, Odin
Roberts, '86, stated that the legacy to
the Club, under the will of J. Arthur
Beebe, of $150,000, on which the Club
had paid the legacy tax of $7500 to the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts, had
been received by the Treasurer. He
then asked William S. Hall, '69, of the
Board of Crovemors, to present a me-
morial of the donor.

Mr. Hall said: "In my opinion one of
the motives, and very probably the prin-
cipal motive, which led Mr. Beebe to
make this large and generous gift to the
Harvard Club of Boston, was the idea,
which I know he had, that this Club was
doing a beneficent work for Harvard in
providing for the younger graduates, for
the first seven years after leaving college,
at a moderate expense, the facilities of a
first-class city club where the best tra-
ditions of Harvard life and conduct
would always be maintained.

*' On behalf of the Board of Crovemors,
upon whom for the time being the duty
devolves to see to it that these traditicms
of Harvard life and conduct are nuiin-
tained within these walls, I desire to ex-
press their hope that we shall, all of us,
always remember and never forget that,
in these respects, each individual mem-
ber has the honor of the whole Club in
his keeping.

'*This memorial was prepared for his
College Class at its meeting last Com-
mencement Day. It has been thought
fitting by the Board of Governors that it
be presented to this meeting, and, with



your approval, spread upon the records
of the Club."

James Arthur Beebe was bom in Boston,
Massachusetts, August 12, 1846, the son of
James M. and Esther E. Beebe, and died in
Boston, November 27, 1014. He prepared for
College at the priyate school of Epes 8. Dix-
well in Boston. Ip 1865 he entered Harvard
CoOege and remained with the Class during
the Freshman year. At the begimiing of the
Sophomore year he was obliged to leave on
account of ill health, and did not return.

On April 22, 1800, he was married to Emily,
daughter of William and Emily (Warren)
Appleton.

There were bom to them: Arthur Appleton,
bora January 30, 1872; Harvard A.B. 1804,
M.D. 1806: died March 11, 1000. Emily Es-
ther, bom January 6, 1878: died July 21, 1013.
Charles Philip, bora January 1, 1884.

His wife died March 25, 1011.

Very few in private life had a wider circle of
acquaintance. Not many realised that his
manner, blithe and debonair, was a veil over
tragedies in life that few are called upon to
bear. Under the staggering blows whidi Fate
dealt him he kept his feet, and carried himself
with manly courage to the end, but with a
breaking heart.

A lover of music from his College days, he
was throughout his life devoted to music.

His great love of flowers found expression in
his beautiful gardens at Falmouth.

Obliged by ill-health to leave College in the
early part of the course, he never lost the stu-
dious habit of mind. In later years he was es-
pecially well read in the best French literattue.

The church and religious observance always
made peculiar appeal to him.

As the years diew on, his early friends grew
dearer, and he clung to the narrowing circle
surviving with an almost pathetic tenderness.
It seemed as if the light of love for his class-
mates and his College grew brighter as the
light of his life grew less. To the one he has
left loving and tender memories of youth and
manhood; to the other, his only surviving
child being already richly provided for, he has
left the residue of his estate, the income to be
used without restriction for the general pur-
poses of the University.

And now it is well with him. He has gone
from out our bourne of Time and Place, to
meet his Pilot face to face.

Henry G. Pickering, '69, said: **I wish
to call attention to other gifts injthe will
of Mr. Beebe, indicating his great inter-
est in the College and in the cause of
music at Harvard: a gift of $10,000
'to Percy Lee Atherton, to be spent
by him at his discretion for musical
progress at Harvard,' and a like amount

to his classmate* Warren Andrew Locke,
'in token of my affection and apprecia-
tion of his devotion to musical interests
at Harvard.*"

Mr. Pickering then offered the follow-
ing motion, which was adopted by a
rising vote:

"That the Club do now record their
grateful acknowledgment of the gener^
ous gift of the late James Arthur Beebe,
and direct that the memorial which has
just been read be spread upon the rec-
ords of the Club, and that the vote on
the motion when taken be taken by a
rising vote."

NEWS FROM THE CLASSES.

*^ The personsl news is eompiled from in-
formation furnished by the CIa« Secretaries,
and by the Secretaries of Harvard Clube and
Associations, and from other reliable aouroea.
The value of this department might be greatly
enhanced if Harvard men everywhere would
contribute to it. Responsibility for errors
should rest with the Editor.

*«* It becomes more and more difficult to
assign recent Harvard men to their proper
Class, since many who call themselves class-
mates take their degrees in different years. It
sometimes happens, therefore, that, in the
news furnished by the Secretaries, the Class
rating of the Quinquennial Catalogue is not
strictly followed.

V* Much additional personal news will be
found in the reports of the Harvard Clubs, in
the Corporation and Overseers' Reocods, and
in the University Notes.

Newport, R. I.
John Higginson Cabot» of Brook-
line, died Feb. 5, 1916, aged 85. He
was the son of Frederick and Mari-
anne (Cabot) Cabot, and was bom at
Dracut, while his father was connected
with the Lowell Manufacturing Co. in
Lowell. Mr. Cabot was for a while en-
gaged in the iron business, but early
retired, as lameness from childhood
unfitted him for an active life, and
his tastes and attainments were very



decidedly toward literature. He was a
devoted lover of Shakespeare, and oc-
casionally read some of the plays in
public, and frequently did so privately
for the pleasure of his friends. He ex-
celled notably as an actor in private
theatricals, and took part in many of
the receptions of the Brookline Com-
edy Club. He was a bachelor, and the
last of his immediate family. He is
survived by a number of nephews and
nieces and their children, representing
three generations. Frederick P. Cabot,
judge of the Boston Juvenile Court,
and F. Ernest Cabot are his nephews.
Like others of his family, he had a dis-
taste for retrospect. He lived in the
present, keenly alive to the world*s
great movements. Toward the close
of his life, failing health confined him
for a year to his chamber, but he was
surrounded by loving relatives, close
association with whom proved very
happy for all. — Nathaniel Jarvis
Wyeth, of Richmond Hill, New Dorp,
Staten Island, N.Y., soon followed
Cabot, and was the sixth of the Class
to succumb within less than two years.
He died March 22, aged 85, was one
of the oldest lawyers of New York
City. He was born in Baltimore, Sept.
8, 1830, and was the son of Charles
and Elisabeth Norris Wyeth. His
great-uncle, of the same name, of
Cambridge, was the first to organize
an effort to colonize Oregon, and be-
tween 1831-36 led two expeditions
across the continent for this purpose.
Mr. Wyeth as a child was sent to a
boarding-school at Mount Hope, and
subsequently to the Classical High
School at Lawrenceville, N.J. Upon
graduating with his Class at Cam-
bridge, he entered the Law School.
He opened an oflice at 49 Wall St.,
New York City, and subsequently
removed to Staten Island. He repre-

sented Richmond County in the State
Legislature for 1867, at which time he
made the initial movement for rapid
transit between the island and New
York City. He served upon important
committees, and was at one time nom-
inated for Congress. He was married
at Cambridge, Oct. 4, 1854, to Annie
Caroline, daughter of William Frost,
of New Orleans. She died on Dec. 20,
1914. Their children were Annie
Florence, who did not reach maturity;
Helen E., Lucille, Laura A., and
Charles, a prominent civil engineer in
New York. Mr. Wyeth finally became
entirely blind, but retained all his
fondness for professional and literary
work. His interest in his Class con-
tinued intense until the end. It had
been said of him that he was a good
man to have for a friend, for fidelity to
friends was a prominent part of his
religion. It was also said that no man
ever carried within his bosom a kind-
lier or gentler heart, no man ever
sought to live nearer the Golden Rule.
Such an one surely deserves remem-
brance. — Three of the Class now
remain; Coolidge, Warner, and the
Secretary.

1854.
Douglas Walwortli, a much esteemed
member of the Class, who was compelled
by ill health to leave College at the end
of the Freshman year, died at Natchez,
Miss., June 25, 1914. He was a son of
John P. and Sarah Wren Walworth, and
was bom at Natchez, June 14, 183S.
When he came to College, he found a
home, which he ever afterwards cher-
ished, with the family of Moses Williams
at Jamaica Plain. After he left Cam-
bridge, he entered the Sophomore Class
at Nassau Hall, Princeton, but ill health
again prevented him from completing a
college course. He returned to Natchez,



and studied law there with W. J. Mar-
tin, and was admitted to the bar in Feb-
ruary, 1855. In 1856, he married Rebecca
Conner, by whom he had five children;
a son, who died of yellow fever some
years before his father's death, and four
daughters. He was a major in the Con-
federate Army during the Civil War.
His wife dying, he married again, in
1873, Jeannette Haderman, authoress of
Southern SiUumettes and of other works
ci fiction, who with his four daughters
survives him. After the war he was for a
time in New York. Later he returned to
Natchez, and for some years edited a
newspaper there. He suffered reverses
and ** many sorrows, but he never lost
his sweet nature or his love for his old
friends.'* He wrote that he cherished for
the Class " the warmest friendship and
liveliest recollections." " Beloved, hon-
ored, and respected by his fellow citizens,
serving faithfully and well in every car
pacity, his utmost endeavors were for
the good of the people." — Joseph R.
Webster, Acting Secretary of the Class,
died in Lexington on May 9.

Sophomore years. In the second term
Sophomore he had a long and severe ill-
ness. Upon his recoveiy he did not re-
turn to College; but soon after entered
the Harvard Law School, receiving the
degree of LL.B. in 1856. He practised
law in New York, being at one time
a partner with Lucius Robinson, and
assisting in editing a new edition of
Kent's CommerUarie*. In 1860 he was
elected counsel for the Mutual Life In-
surance Company of New York. In 1865
he was chosen vice-president of that
company. In 1885 he became president,
and held that position until lus resigna-
tion in 1906. He married, in Cambridge,
in 1856, Sarah £. Little, daughter of
Charles Coffin and Sarah Ann (Hilliard)
Little, and sister of his Harvard class-
mate George £. Little.

He was bom in Philadelphia, Aug. 15,

beth Sewall (Salisbury) Chauncey.
He was a lineal descendant of the sec-
ond President of Harvard College,
Charles Chauncy. (The spelling is that

was fitted for College in Boston,

of sickness, by John Noble, '50.
After graduation he returned to Phila-

mitted to the bar. He was commis-
sioned 1st lieutenant and adjutant,

became captain in the following April.
He served through Pope*s campaign
in West Virginia, at the second battle
of Bull Run, was an A.D.C. on the
staff of Maj.-Gen. Stahl, and later on



the staff of Brig.-Gen. Kilpatrick, in
the Army of the Potomac. He took
part in the battle of Gettysburg. In
the following year his health failed,
and he was sent home on sick leave in
August. In September, 1864, he re-
signed on account of disability, and
took up the practice of law in Phila-
delphia, and continued it during the
remainder of his life. He was a mem-
ber of the M.O.L.L.U.S. His wife,
Agnes Conway, daughter of Moncure
Robinson Conway, survives him. —
Edward Stanley Waters died in
Salem, April 7, 1916. He was bom in

in the great fire of October, 1871.
Some years later he went to Minne-
apolis, where he became the librarian
of the Law Library, and remained in

lections, and edited its publication
