study and travel in Greece and other parts of Europe. Miss Martha I. Maltby of Ohio and Miss Eflie F. Kinne of Massachusetts, now Mrs. Goodell, were r in turn links in the chain of preceptresses. Following 9 . ' i':' A 4 - . Q these, came our present Principal of the Ladies, fl I Department and instructor in mathematics, Miss s Margaret E. Thompson. The student of Doane in the q A'-.,'- f 'Y,., QA. early years of the eighties might not have guessed . nj ' that Margaret Thompson would in a few short years ' ' " A become the dignified preceptress of Doane. She is ,U zz, in one of the three graduates of the college who have A::.,. - V, ,F afterward been numbered among the Faculty. Prof. F Show and Rev. Mr. Davidson are the other two. I lii ff Miss Thompson graduated with the class of 1886, and became a member of the Faculty the following fall. The summer and fall of 1892 were spent by her in visit- ing schools and colleges in the East. Miss Carrie E. Decker QMrs. Alford McCullock of Bostonj became instructor in music in 1886. Mrs. H. F. Doane was an assistant in her department the following year. Following her, Mr. NV. F. Gates and Miss Mary E. Latimer were each in turn in charge of the Conservatory for a year. Prof. H. H. I-Iosford graduated from Western Reserve College in 1880 and then taught three years in the preparatory department of that school. In 1885 he came to Nebraska. After another year at his Alma Mater he came to Doane in 1887 and taught Latin for tW0 y6a1'S The next three years he spent in Cleveland, Ohio, studying electrical engineering. In 1892 he returned to Doane and has since been professor of astronomy and physics and instructor in chemistry. In 1887 Prof. A. B. Show, a graduate of Doane in 1882, joined the teaching force. After completing his work at Doane he studied at Hartford and Andover A Theological Seminaries. As a student of Doane he wrote a number of poems, some of which are pre- served in the collection of this souvenir.

Miss Ida L. Miller, who taught inatheinatics for the school year of 1883-1884. B Although the Conservatory of Music was estab- .L lished in 1880, it was not till the fall of 1881 that X -P , instruction was given to the first class in vocal and instrumental music by Miss Nellie E. Porter. In the ' spring of 1884 Miss Cora Gates, now Mrs. Cora G. i" 15, - Davison of Denver, became the popular teacher of f T - P n music. Under her careful training the musical L .-1 ability of the students was greatly increased. In 1 ,. ,. X 1 ' 1885 Miss Eine M. Chadsey was chosen as an A In ulz, assistant. But, to return to the historical basis of this out- Ii' 'f" line, in the fall of 1882 the official record of the col- lege shows John S. Brown and Francis L. Kendall, as respectively instructors in chemistry and Normal Department, in German and French. Prof. Kendall has the honor of being the youngest person Who was ever a member of Doane's Faculty. Although he had traveled abroad quite extensively, he graduated from the classical course of Williams College when twenty years old. In the same year he came to Doane. He spent the school year of 1884- 1885 abroad, and his sister, Miss Marcia K. Kendall, taught in his place. That Prof. Kendall was a successful teacher is seen in the fact that in 1887 he was called to a professorship in his Alma Mater. Prof. Brown graduated from Bates in 1872. Before his graduation he was elected to the principalship of the Lyndon Literary Institute in Vermont, which position he held for nine years. During several summers he attended the sum- mer schools of Harvard University. Coming West because of failing health, Prof. Brown was Superin- tendent of Schools at Avoca, Iowa, before coming to Doane. In 1893 he was selected as Principal of . IMARGARET E. THOMPSON Sy the Academy. For fifteen years Prof. Brown has -' 1 kept in close touch with the student life of Doa11e as t' 1 , .i a personal friend of every student. ' 1 , fd Among the instructors of Doane we must note . , Miss Adah M. Gardner and Miss Lydia Kirkwood. ' e ry ,Q fl Both are now married to Methodist ministers, and 1 1 both were teachers in art and came from Hillsdale 1 J College, Michigan. Prof. Howard F. Doane came in 1886,and asin the .lm ' casesof Prof. Brown, Prof. Kendall, and others, taught '1 , ' 1. ,:lj i, 1 during the first year as an instructor. At the end of V 'Wifi' ' wk " i i the school year of 1886-1887 he was elected to the ' Boswell Professorship of Greek. Prof. Doane names Harvard as his Alma Mater, from which he gradu- ated in 1878. He taught in New York City and Poughkeepsie, N. Y., for four years. Fourteen months of 1895- 1896 were spent by him in H, 1-1. 1-roslroizn IO

education. After serving through the war as a band leader he studied and taught music by turns. Among the many masters under whom he has studied are Prof. Goldberg, Dr. Rice, and Dr. Perkins. In 1881 he removed to Nebraska and after nine years of Work as a local music teacher he accepted his present posi- tion. March 22, 1894, marks the beginning of our Mili- tary Department, as on that date our professor of military science and tactics was detailed. This chair is occupied by First Lieutenant Chas. B. Hardin, 18th Infantry, U. S. A. Lieutenant Hardin's life has been one of energy, pluck, and perseverance. His early Illinois home was left for the army when he enlisted in 1872 as a private and served through the Modoc war, 1872-73. By dint of hard, efhcient labor he has risen from a private to a first lieutenant, has successfully passed the examination for captain, and only awaits a vacancy to take this well merited rank. In the fall of 1894 Prof. Joseph H. Powers was added to the Faculty. He graduated from the scien- tific course of the University of Wisconsin in 1890. He took one year of post-graduate work at Madison and then entered the University of Gijttin- gen, from which he received the degree of Ph.D. in 1892. The next two years were spentfin studying in various European schools and in Columbia University. Prof. Powers is pro- fessor of biology and geology. Many others have had places in our corps of instructors to whom space should be given. Among them are Mrs. E. K. Manville, Miss Adelaide Stebbins, Miss Martha Rebendorf, Miss Lizzie E- Boehne CMrs. N. Fay Smilhl, Mrs.. Sarah J. Doane, Miss Orpha E. Leavitt, Mrs. A. R. Rieth, Miss Mabelle F. Prutsman, and Mrs. Jennie C. Hosiord. These should be given credit for eflicient work for a shorter period of time or for successful work as assist- ants. Besides these, many student instructors from time to time have rendered valuable service. The Faculty of Doane have always been excep- tionally well united in all their efforts. The warmest of personal friendships have joined the Faculty together, and with almost no exceptions the utmost of harmony and good-will has characterized their meetings. Our task as enumerator of the college Faculty here ends, but it is pleasing to add that in a college like Doane faithful teachers are more than intellectual guides, they are rather personal friends, who make ineffaceable character impressions upon student lives, who start influences and molding forces that go on forever.
