. ... Board of Education .... Edward L. Wagoner Edward E. Wagoner was born in Girard, Mich. His father, Graton H. Wagoner, was a well-to-do farmer of Girard, and began his son’s education by sending him to the nearby school. Completing the work there, Mr. Wagoner taught in the country schools for a few years. Eater, he became a stu¬ dent at Valpariso, Ind., and at the age of twenty- seven, graduated from the scientific department. After graduating, the next two years were spent in teaching in Indiana. The Terre Haute Street Rail¬ way and Electric Eight Co. next claimed three years of his time. He then came to Quincy, and, for three years, was engineer at the power house. For the past seven years, he has been connected with the McKenzie Milling Co., as chief engineer. He is also a stockholder in the company. Mr. Wagoner is President of the Board and his many years in the teaching profession have qualified him for this position. The exper¬ ience and the position enable him to cope with school problems, and, to appreciate them from a teacher’s viewpoint. Riclujrd T. Baldwin Richard T. Baldwin was born June 20, 1881, at Ida, Mich. Finishing the high school course at Port Huron in 1901, he entered the literary de¬ partment of Albion college and graduated with the class of 1905. Soon after, he married Har¬ riet E. Riddick, who graduated in the same class. During the first year after he left college, Mr. Baldwin superintended the schools at Vandalia, Mich. In February, 1906, he was called to Win- amac, Ind., to take the editorship of the Wina- mac Republican, a county seat republican organ, while its editor spent nearly a year in campaign¬ ing work as secretary of the state central com¬ mittee. When this work was completed early in 1907, Mr. Baldwin became proprietor and editor of the Quincy News. The paper received a new birth and growth, and after continuing in opposi- richard t.

mysteries; we shall be able to associate with learned men and be capable of getting a better conception of their ideas. We have that, which, if pnt to test, will earn us a livelihood and make us, so to speak, independent of others. i ' hen, too, in this day and age of our prosperous nation, an advanced education is necessary to give us the standing among men, which our fathers and grandfathers possessed with their meagre instruction, obtained from teachers whom we should now call incompetent. Thus, we see the value of our twelve years’ work and, when we start out for ourselves, we shall more vividly realize its worth to us. Perhaps T too, we can make it of value to others, for I am sure that if we can convince some person that a good education is the all-important factor of a successful life, we shall arouse in him a desire for knowledge. And, when he perceives that his greatest pleasure is con¬ versing with learned men on subjects with which he has some acquaintance, he will be glad that he made the effort to gain that knowledge. As Salutatorian, in behalf of the class of 1910, I bring you a happy greeting at this our commencement season. We have labored earnestly and have endeavored to prove ourselves worthy of your kindness toward us. We wish to express our gratitude to those who have made our graduation a possibility. It is our earnest wish that, during the years that follow, we may ever be conscious of this gratitude, for it may serve as an inspiration to us to be helpful to those who may struggle under the same diffiuclties that we have met. Then, when we shall have graduated from life’s great school, our commencement shall be the more glorious.

tion to the Quincy Herald for some time, lie ef¬ fected the merging of the two papers into the Quincy Herald. That paper has been enlarged and improved until it ranks high among the pa¬ pers of our county. Mr. Baldwin is one of the foremost men of the town, being active in relig¬ ious as well as business affairs. He is the young¬ est member of the Board and holds the office of Secretary. He has been engaged in educational work, and, being an editor, has in mind both the interests of the school and the people. FELIX A. MCKENZIE (‘lix A. McKenzie Felix A. McKenzie was born in 1860, near Williamstown, Va., and received his early educa¬ tion in that locality. Twelve years of his later life were spent as a traveling salesman of machin¬ ery. He then became a millwright and followed that business for several years, having the gen¬ eral superintendence of the construction of upwards of fifty different mills. In this capacity Mr. McKenzie was quite widely known throughout the country, working- in various parts of the United States. Later locating in Quincy, he rebuilt and added to the mill in which he began and still continues the milling business. A controlling interest in the company is held by him. Thru his efforts, the business has been increased until he has the largest buckwheat plant in the United States. The formula for the buckwheat compound is original with him. Mr. McKenzie is the oldest member of the Board, in point of service. He is a man who has a prac¬ tical education gleaned from valuable experience and views onr school problems from the practical side. He has held the Treasurership of the Board the past two years. Daniel W. App Daniel W. App has been a resident of Quincy for the past twenty-seven years. He was born at Selins Grove, Pa., in 1854.

He spent three years in the west as a telegraph operator, and in 1883, located in Quincy. For four years, Mr. App acted as night operator at the L. S. M. S. station, at the expiration of which time he was given charge of the freight department and made DANIEL W. APP
