arolD iRetuton jFolImer, a. . XT IS with great pleasure that in this issue of the " Lanthorn " we can bring before the readers one who lias done so much toward promoting the interests of Sus- quehanna, one who lias won the respect and is held in the highest esteem by all the students and friends of the University. Rev. H. X. Follmer was born June 11, 1861, near Milton, Northumberland County, Pa. He spent his earl} ' life on his father ' s farm, beginning his education in the public school near his home. At the age of twelve years he went to Mahanoy City where he accepted a position as clerk in a grocerv store, which position he held for two years. Returning home and desiring to prepare him- self for greater usefulness in life he attended the Limestoneville Academy, Northumberland Couny during the summer months, and taught in the public schools during the winter months. A few years later he entered Missionary Tit stitute, graduating with the class of 1883. In the fall of the same year he entered the Junior class at ittenberg College ami graduated with first honors in 1885, after which he returned to Missionary Institute for his theological course and was ordained into the Gospel Ministry by the Susquehanna Synod in 1887, after which he became pastor of Lutheran Church at Yeager town, Pa. After a very successful pastorate of six years, during which lime a new church was built at Reedsville, and the membership was greatly increased, he entered upon a very diffi- cult work at Pittsburg where he manifested ex- ceptional executive ability and again built a new church. Eight years were spent in his Pittsburg pas- torate and in the fall of 1901 he accepted a call from a large congregation in Huntingdon, where for another eight years he served his people faithfully, .and was held in the highest esteem by the people of the city in general, and es- pecially liv the people of his congregation. Dur- ing the year 1908 be was called to Susquehanna University to take the chair of Sociology and Natural Theology in the College department. and of Apologetics and pastoral Theology in the Theological department. In all the religions organizations of the school he is an active worker, always manifesting great interest. No one can come in contact with him. either in the class room or out of it. without feel- ing that he has been uplifted and benefited. We know thai we express the desire of all when we hope that for many years Prof. Follmer may be one laboring among the students oi Susquehanna University.
