Acting President john Halsey, LLD.
Born in Louisville, Ky., in 1848: B.A., University of Chicago, 1870: Ll...D., Centre College, Ky., 1897.
For the second time Dr. Halsey has been ap-
pointed Acting President ol the College. His ap-
pointment as a member ol the College Faculty
antedates by almost ten years that of any of his
colleagues. His l-:nowledge of the history of
the institutions here, and ol the conditions that
make for their welfare is intimate. These, how-
ever, are not the only reasons for his selection a
second time to the dillicult and delicate duties ol
administration. He has always shown exceptional
power to inspire his students with an intense love
for the subjects he teaches and with no less a love
lor their teacher. The Alumni are his enthusiastic
admirers, and as they return to revisit Alma Mater,
one of their greatest pleasures is to meet and greet
Dr. Halsey. The townspeople and other friends
l ol the college have a rare conlidence in his ability
l and judgment. No man in our entire community,
is loved more. As Acting President in 1896-1897
he performed the various and trying duties of this ollice most acceptably.
Dr. l'lalsey's service to Lalce Forest, however, has not been confined to its College.
He has always tal-cen an active part in whatever tends to upbuild its social, political, liter-
ary, moral and religious life. As one ol the organizers ol the Art lnstitute and of the
University Club, as Alderman and Acting Mayor, as Superintendent of the Public Schools,
President ol the Board oi Education and of the Public Library Board, as secretary of the
Law and Qrder League, as Elder in the Church for over twenty years, Bible Class leader,
Representative many times to the Presbytery and Synod, and Commissioner to the Gen-
eral Assembly, his infiuence has been far reaching. This is only a suggestion of large
and varied service to Lalie Forest and its institutions, but enough to show the wisdom of
the Board ol Trustees in again calling to the Acting Presidency, Dr. John J. Halsey.
