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. 11

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 can know. 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." 10
