Richard Davenport Harlan
This year has marlced the end of an adminis-
tration which will ever be recognized as one of the
most critical, yet most prosperous withal, in the
history oi Lake Forest College. It has witnessed
the passing from our head and from our midst one
to whose labor and interest we owe more than we
Months have passed since Dr. Harlan leltusg
time has cleared our vision, and we can view with-
out passion the man and his worlw: in behalf of this
institution. But not one whit has the respect and
love, which we have felt for him, lessened. A man
of sterling worth was he, generous, lranl-4, unselhsh,
lovable, a man ol quiclc and deep sympathies.
Strong and deep was his love lor the students-
umy children," he called them-and his sympathy
enabled him sometimes to understand, where others
tailed to understand, the standpoint ol the student.
To him Lake Forest College meant more than
merely a held lor the exercise ol the powers which he possessed. It was something quick
with life, immortal, a something worthy the labor of love. ln his farewell to the students,
were these words, ull you could use the X-ray of omniscience, you would find the map ot
this campus burnt deeply and forever upon my hearty'-so well did he love this college.
But we would have these words changed, thus: "Upon the history of this institution,
upon the spirit ol the student body, upon the life ol every student with whom he came
into intimate contact, is stamped, deeply and forever, the impress of the life and the labor
ol Dr. Harlan." We miss him yet-in the ollice, upon the campus, at the chapel desk,
and at the Vesper service, in which he took so much pride. This be our sincerest ap-
preciation-i'We miss him."
