Since 1905 he has been a member of the Peru Normal faculty, as head of the Department of Commerce. He has always taken an active interest in all the organizations of the school, and was adviser for many years of the oldest literary society in the school as well as in the state. His work in the Normal has brought him in touch not only with the individual students but with the best educational men of the state, and no man is more widely known over the state than Professor Delzell.
He is a prominent factor in the educational world and has done much towards promoting a truer professional spirit among the teachers of the state.
Not only has his influence been felt in the management of the affairs and enterprises of the Class but it has extended to each individual member of the Class. He has devoted to the Class much of his time and the best of his energies, and his services as adviser have been invaluable because his advice and suggestions arc the results of years of practical experience in the "university of hard knocks.”
No one can know him without- feeling that here is a man of “true blue,” a man whose goodness of heart and broad sympathies make him a superior teacher and never-to-be-forgotten friend. Modest and unassuming, he has created in the hearts of the Class a place for himeslf that is secure and can be filled by no other.
That which we obtain from books constitutes but a small part of our education. It is the inspiration that we derive from personal contact with our fellow-beings that is of far-reaching importance and of a lasting character. Our adviser is a man who has helped us get ideals and visions of the great possibilities and the grand opportunities that arc ours.
If his reward be commensurate with his services it will indeed be great. A portion of his reward will consist in knowing that he has the lasting friendship and admiration of the whole Class. The Class of 1912 has incurred a debt of gratitude to Professor Delzell that can never be repaid.

WILLIAM NEWTON DKI.ZKU. AdvUcr. Clan of 1012
Tlic Class of 1912 lias been fortunate in having as adviser. Professor Delzcll, who was appointed to fill that position by the unanimous wish and request of the class.
In the same year and month that the Peru State Normal was organized, Professor Delzcll began his career near Monticello, Indiana. William was but seven years old when his father went blind, so he, together with his brother, shouldered the responsibility of supporting the family; seven years later he moved to Antelope County, Nebraska.
Being ambitious to secure an education, through his own efforts and sacrifices he put himself through school, attending Gates Academy at Ncligli, Omaha Commercial College, and graduating from Peru State Normal in 1894.
He began his teaching career at Unadilia, from there going to Dunbar, and three years later he moved to Syracuse, where he remained five years as Superintendent of Schools.
For three years he was associated with the “Nebraska Teacher,” one of the leading educational papers of the state, as one of its editors.
