I I (S r f r t i n g " Whoever thinks a faultless Annual to see. Thinks what ne ' er was, nor is, nor e ' re shall be. " In giving to the friends of our college, this our ninth volume of the Colonial Echo, we do so with a full knowledge of the fact that there are flaws, yea, serious flaws in our work. It has been our aim, however, to present to to our friends a picture of college life as it is today, and, perchance, recall some fond memories to the alumnus who may read. Had it not been for the aid and coop- eration of our friends, we should have been unable to publish this volume. As you glance over its pages, we would beg of you to be kindly toward its faults, and praise its virtues.

Cl)c 1911 Colonial CrJjo The Library HE iie library of William and !Mary College was made possible by the kindness of Andrew Carnegie and other friends of the col- lege, and today we have a beautiful and comfortable home for the twenty thousand volumes which constitute the basis of that truly broadening education which has made this school famous. Here also is found a large collection of valuable portraits, painted by eminent artists, of the famous friends, patrons, and alumni of William and Mary. Among these may be found the faces of great statesmen, soldiers, and scien- tists, — men whose powers have guided the destinies of a great nation, and influenced events of vital importance to the entire world. In the exhibition cases are numerous relics and antiquities. It was at William and Mary that the Greek letter fraternity originated in America, and the original charter and minutes of Phi Beta Kappa are still preserved in the library. Rare books, yellow with age and replete with historic associations, are displayed in the reading room. The commodious stack-room contains the working library, easily accessible and carefully managed. Nowhere can the student find a more congenial atmosphere for study than in the library. Here, amid these pleasant and stimulating surroundings, Vir- ginia is building the foundations of her future greatness, and making more secure her position as a great and progressive Commonwealth.
