AliAYlC'l"l'lC College has a large body
of loyal alumni, men who stand
ready to do anything in their power for
their Alma Materg but the college has no
more interested nor active friend than
Mr. F. W. lfreeman, who, although not
a son of the college, has for several years
devoted his time and talents to the wel-
fare of Lafayette.
To enumerate all the services of
Mr. Freeman would be an almost impossi-
ble task and many of them have been of
such a nature that they will never be
brought to light.
Mr. Freeman first became prominent
in the affairs of the college in the fall of
roto when he came to the rescue of the
puny college band and by ceaseless labors
has made of it perhaps the best college
band in the East. In connection with
this organization he has conducted two
rehearsals every week, given private lessons
free of charge to those who have needed
them, saved the band seycral times from
financial ruin and been instrumental in
securing uniforms for the whole organiza-
Mr. F. W. Freeman tion,
This year he stepped in and assumed leadership of the Musical Clubs just as they were about
to be disbanded. By his characteristic enthusiasm and hard work he has brought' them to the
high plane of excellence which they held some eight or ten years ago.
The versatility of the man was demonstrated in another form this fall when injuries to the
football team demanded a special medical adviser and the Athletic Association was unable to
stand the expense of a resident physician. Mr. Freeman immediately put his expert medical
knowledge and skill at the disposal of the Association and throughout the season cared for the
injured players and did what he could to keep the others in condition.
But that which has endeared Mr. Freeman most to the students of Lafayette College is the
great number of little kindnesses which he has shown to individual students. Here and there on
the campus students who have been sick or in trouble have received from Mr. Freeman those
thoughtful attentions which they will always remember.
The big-heartedness of the man can be best appreciated only when we consider the fact
that for all l1is services he has never received a remuneration of any kind and that his only motive
has been an altruistic interest in Lafayette College.
The MELANGI5 Board wishes to take this opportunity to show the high esteem of the students
and Alumni for this loyal friend-Mr, F, W, Freeman.
