We have received information of the sudden y death of Edward A. Welch, eldest son of Dr. Albert G. Welch of this county which took place a few days ago in Fluvanna county, Va., where he resided. He was about iifty-eight years old. He was a graduate of St. John's College in the class of '55. At the breaking out of the late war, he Went South with a number of young men from this city and joined the Confederacy, and was la corporal in company "C" Second Maryland Infantry, in which he distinguished himself as one of the bravest'of'dcers of the war. He leaves several relatives in Annapolis. Among the visitors to the college in the past month. was Mr. John H. Waller, ,93 of Salisbury Md. Mr. Waller is now successfully pursuing the practice of the legal profession. Q f. - - v.- the session of 94 5 by our foot ball and base-ball teams, and we may say with pardonable pride, that, consid- ering the disadvantages under which the Athletic Association has labored, our men have done work equal to any and second to none. Of the iive foot-ball games which we played in '93, we lost but one, and although de- feat in any form is humiliating, yet the fact that our opponents in this game were much older than ourselves and vastly superior in size and prac- tice, forms extenuating circumstan- ces. A Although our base-ball record up to date is not so brilliant as our foot- ball record, at the present writing the season is not over, and it is im- possible to predict the result with accuracy. It is safe to say, however, that we will do our best, and if we do lose any of theseveral remaining games on the schedule, it will not be through any fault of our own. We regret to state, that by gradua- tion, the Athletic Association will lose Messrs. Jones, Fechtig, Stine and Ridgely. These men have been,

Such recollections can awake' in the younger sons of St. John's renewed affection and interest in our.Alma Matcix- We 'can feel that we may, with very pardonable pride, refer to her famed ancient alumni. that have departed from the scenes of life and who, during their lives, did, so much for State and Nationin her time of great trial. It is a long and glorious list to ponder over and our heart swells with pride and love for old St. JOl1117S as we linger over each naine. Howe ver, we propose here to reproduce simply a little of the life history of him who holds the honor- ed position of the oldest of the living of the alumni of St. Jolinis. Some days in fine weather we may see a venerable form moving slowly on the streets of the ancient town.- Uuriosity at once lills us as we 'be- hold his interesting countenance and we inquire who this kindly old gen- tleman may be, we are told that he is William Howard, who heads the living list of the sons of St. John's. Born December 24, 1809, he early began his connection with the history of the institution. I-Ie was gradua- ted in 1827, with the degree of B. A., and with the lirst honors of his class. He was also captain of the military COLLEGIAN. y company at the college. ' After uation he studied law-under der Contee Magruder, and a Wasi-ad? mitted tothe bar. He scion after abandoned the lawiinnorderi to 'dt' himselfifor teaching, and 'soon after 'heuwas honored by his Alma Mater with -the M. IA. degree- In 18-'73 he was elected one of the Board of Visitors and Governors,-of the college, and was for a while secretary of that body. He still continues his great -interest in the ,college by serving as a member of the board. In his 'fRe- ininiscences of -old St. -John's," in the f'St. .Iohn's Bookf' compiled by President Thomas Fell in 1893, and from which we quote, by permission, give us some interesting data re- lating to the early events in connec- tion vvith the college. M He tells us of the enmity that was incurred among the leading party of the State, in the collegeis early years, and of its effects.

In a few short years I returned, and the companions and guides of my youth were gone. The glory of the Temple of Science, which the wisdom and piety of our fathers had founded, was departed.
