January, 1936 CHRONICLES 3 Foreword That this book may tend to strengthen the bond of undy¬ ing loyalty between the boys of Girard College and the College itself by serving as a means of pleasant reminiscence in the future of the happy days spent here is the fervent wish of the editors while compiling this volume. Appreciation Nowhere in the body of this book does there appear any mention of our teachers, instructors, or of those who have given their energies in our behalf in the household. This does not mean we have forgotten or, overlooked them. Though this space is inadequate and our words but feeble messengers of our feelings, we say to all our wise and beloved friends and counsellors after the manner of Abraham Lincoln, “All that we are or hope to be, we owe in a large measure to your painstaking instruction and to Girard College.’’

2 CHRONICLES January, 1936 3n DHmnrtam “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: jdge shall not weary them, nor the years condemn, jit the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. Jind where our desires are and our hopes profound. Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight. To the innocent heart of their comrades they are known Jis the stars are known the night. ” —Binyon Snnalii SUrss 1918-1932 Militant Morris 1918-1934

4 CHRONICLES January, 1936 To Six Distinguished Alumni William E. Littleton He was one of the first three hundred boys to be admitted to the College. He entered December 1848 and left April 1855. For many years he was an Attor- ney-at-Law and served as President of the Council of Philadelphia. As such, he was the first alumnus to sit as an Ex-Officio member of the Board of Di¬ rectors of the College. Harry Brocklehurst He had charge of some building operations for the Girard Estate. In his will he left a fund of $50,000 to be applied for the use and benefit of for¬ mer students of Girard College. He came to Girard in February 1864 and left June 1871. James E. Lennon For many years he, too, was Presi¬ dent of the Council and also an Ex- Officio Board member at the College. He left a fund of $1000 for the pur¬ chase of books for any of the Alumni who are pursuing their studies in other schools. Admitted to the College in January 1870, he left in July 1877. John R. Neison In Mr. Neison we have an example of the plodder who started at the very bottom with the Ajax Metal Works of Philadelphia and at last gained its high¬ est position. His recent death revealed that he gave to the Board a residuary fund of approximately $125,000 to be used in helping needy Alumni or to aid an Alumnus in furthering his education. He was in the College from February 1871 to November 1880. Henry Kraemer The shining light of the Philadelphia School of Pharmacy was Dr. Kraemer. He was admitted to Girard in June 1877 and left in January 1884. Ultimately he became an authority on Chemistry and is revered by students of that science. William H. Kingsley We all know Mr. Kingsley. He is a familar figure in our Chapel services. For fifty years he has been connected with the Penn Mutal Life Insurance Company and is at present first Vice- President. Mr. Kingsley has the added distinction of being the first alumnus ever to be appointed by the Board of Judges as a member of the Board of Directors of City Trusts. He is the only living Alumnus on this list. He entered Girard December 1877 and left Febru¬ ary 1885. Whom We Strive to Emulate
