This book is respectfully dedicatedLEOPOLD GREENBAUM, M. D., D. D. S.The Editor of this book wishes to thank the members of the Class, the Faculty, the Class Officers and the publication board especially the Artist for the efforts they have all put forth to make it a success.9PREFACE
AT last it is all over and we are no longer the "Play Doctors" that we have been for the past three years but full fledged Doctors of Dental Surgery. How proud we are of these three words, proud of them because they arc the summing up of our best efforts at the beginning of what is to be our life work.
The Editors of the book have tried to make it cover the whole three years and we trust that when in years to come yc pick it up for a few moments it will recall many happy days spent in the Old P. D. C.
We highly appreciate the efforts our class mates have put forth in our behalf, we feel sure that had it not been for the help obtained from the individual members the book would have been lacking in many respects. As it is I believe I can truthfully say we have one of the most complete books ever issued by a graduating class.
We hope you all have received your share of raps and trusi you will take them kindly as we are sure they were delivered in the most friendly way. If you have not been severely knocked we are sorry because we believe every fellow in the class enjoys having a joke on himself.
I take it upon myself to thank the class again for the hearty support they have given us and to wish every member the best of luck in tfur New Profession.

HISTORY OF THE
PHILADELPHIA DENTAL COLLEGE AND HOSPITAL OF ORAL SURGERY
From its Inception in 1852 to 1907
THE first institution established in Pennsylvania for imparting of knowledge in the science anil art of dentistry was organized in 1852 under the title of Philadelphia College of Dental Surgery. After a useful but short life of four years, it yielded to internal dissension and ceased to exist.
In the fall of 1862 Dr. John M. McQuillen, holding the chair of Operative Dentistry and Physiology in the Pennsylvania College, retired from the faculty, and in 1863. with the assistance of other members of the profession in the city and State, after great expenditure and overcoming of great opposition, he succeeded in obtaining from the Legislature of Pennsylvania a charter for a new institution under the name of the Philadelphia Dental College. After the securing of a competent Faculty and Board of Trustees, the new institution opened its first term in November of the same year.
Its Faculty consisted of:
Dr. J. H. McQuillen, Professor of Anatomy. Physiology and Hygiene. Dr. J. Foster Flagg, Professor of Institutes of Dentistry,
Dr. C. A. Kingsbury. Professor of Physiology and Operative Dentistry. Dr. Thomas Warded, Professor of Mechanical Dentistry and Metallurgy. Dr. Henry Morton. A. M., Professor of Chemistry.
Dr. McQuillen was elected Dean, and held that office continually until his death.
In 1865 Professors Kingsbury and Morton resigned, and were succeeded by Dr. George W. Ellis and Alfred R. Leeds, A. M.
In 186G Professor Ellis resigned, and Professor Kingsbury resumed his former chair. In 1867 Professor Warded resigned, and Dr. D. D. Smith was elected to succeed him. The same year two new chairs were created, one of Principles and Practice of Surgery, and the other of Anatomy. Dr. James E. Garretson was chosen incumbent of the former, and Dr. Harrison Aden of the latter.
In the following year. 1868. Professors Garretson and Leeds resigned, and Dr. S. P . Howell was elected to succeed Professor Leeds.In 1869 Professor Kingsbury resigned bis chair and was made Emeritus Professor, and Dr. Thomas C. Stellwagen was chosen his successor. In 1870 Professor Flagg resigned his chair.
Thus far some change had taken place in the personnel of the faculty each year but one. During the succeeding eight years no change occurred, but in 1878 Professor Garrctson resumed his chair of Anatomy and Surgery, and Dr. Henry J. Door was made Adjunct Professor of Practical Dentistry.
In 1879 t lc chair of Dental Pathology and Therapeutics was established, and Professor Flagg was chosen to fill it.
Owing to the lamented death of Professor McQuillen during this year, some changes in the chairs were made necessary.
Professor Stellwagen succeeded Professor McQuillen in the Chair of Physiology and his former chair of Operative Dentistry was united to that of Mechanical Dentistry. At the same time a new chair of Clinical Dentistry was established and Professor H. J. Door was chosen to fill it.
In 1881 Professor Smith resigned, and Dr. S. H. Guilford was elected incumbent of the chair of Operative and Prosthetic Dentistry and Orthodontia.
In 1889 Professor Door’s chair was changed to that of Practical Dentistry Anaesthesia and Anaesthetics. From then until the death of Professor Garretson in October. 1895, a period of fourteen years, no changes occurred; but after his death Dr. H. C. Boenning was elected to the chair of Anatomy and Surgery, and Dr. M. C. Cryer, for many years the assistant of Professor Garretson, was chosen Adjunct Professor of Oral Surgery.
In January, 1896,- Professor S. H. Guilford was elected Dean of the Faculty.
In the spring of the same year Professors Door and Flagg resigned, owing to ill health. Dr. Leo Greenbaum was thereupon chosen to succeed Professor Door, and the chair changed to include Materia Medica, Anaesthetics and Odontotechnv.
Dr. H. H. Burchard was also chosen to fill the place of Dr. Flagg and made Special Lecturer on Dental Pathology and Therapeutics.
After serving the school most acceptably for three years. Dr. Burchard’s failing health compelled his resignation.
In October. 1896. Dr. Cryer resigned to accept a position in the Dental Department of the University of Pennsylvania.
In May. 1899. A. H. Thompson, of Topeka. Kansas, and Dean of the Kansas City Dental College was chosen to succeed Dr. Burchard. and the chair was extended to include Comparative Dental Anatomy.
In May, 1900, Dr. Thompson resigned to resume his former Professorship in Kansas City Dental College, and Dr. Otto E. Inglis was elected Special Lecturer on Dental Pathology and Therapeutics.
In October. 1901. Dr. Boom succeeded Dr. S. B. Howell, who became Professor Emeritus of Chemistry Physics and Metallurgy. At this time also Dr. Otto E. Inglis was elected to the chair of Dental Pathology and Therapeutics.
20In 1905 Dr. Leo Greenbaum was elected Assistant Dean and in June. 1906 Dr. S. H. Guilford resigned the office of Dean and Dr. Greenbaum was elected to that position. The last named is the present incumbent.
The College has witnessed few changes in the Presidency of the Board of Trustees. The first incumbent was Rev. Richard Newton, D. D., the second was Hon. James Pollock, LL.D., and the present incumbent is General James A. Beaver, LL.D.
At the time of its incorporation there were but three other dental schools, beside the Philadelphia Dental College, with a combined attendance of one hundred students. To-day there are in United States more than fifty institutions, with a total yearly attendance of about five thousand students. In the forty years of its existence the Philadelphia Dental College has graduated no less than 3000 students.
Like the other schools, it has advanced from a two-year to a three-vear course, with supplemental spring and fall courses, covering three months or more.
From a yearly curriculum that required thirty-four lectures from each professor it has advanced into one which more than one hundred didactic lectures are given annually by the incumbent of each chair.
In addition to this, the clinical facilities have been enlarged, thereby giving to the students opportunities which were undreamed of years ago.
One of the most recent advancements has been the establishment of technic courses in the Freshman and Junior years, this being of great advantage to the new student.
The Philadelphia Dental College was the first to introduce into its curriculum a course of oral surgery and the first to establish a hospital for the treatment of diseases of the oral cavity. Professor Garretson was the first to introduce this, as a part of the dental curriculum.
The Philadelphia Dental College in the many years of its existence has lost but five of its professors through death. These men were Dr. Garretson. Dr. McQuillen, Dr. C. A. Kingsbury, Dr. J. F. Flagg and H. II. Burchard. Each of these was a master in the art of teaching, and each at the time of his death was not only the Deam of the school, but the most distinguished member of the Faculty.
During its existence two changes of location have been made necessary by the growth of the college.
Upon its establishment it was located at the northwest corner of Tenth and Arch Streets. There it remained until 1887. when it removed to a new and larger building on Cherry Street, below Eighteenth. Outgrowing these quarters in the course of eight years, it was decided to purchase ground in a new locality, and erect a large and commodious building, adopted solely to its own educational purposes. In 1896 a suitable location was found at Eighteenth, Buttonwood and Hamilton Streets, and here ground was broken and the erection of a new building begun.
The cornerstone was laid with Masonic ceremonies, January 13, 1897, and the building opened for the fall term on September 1st, and formally dedicated on October 4th.
21In honor of its founder, the hospital has been named the Garretson Hospital. It occupies a large portion of the first floor of the new building, and is very beautifully equipped with all the needs of such an institution.
In 1905, owing to the increase in the patients, the hospital required more room, and a demand, or rather a petition, was made to the State for money to build a new hospital on the campus of the college. .Great credit is due to Dr. Boenning, whose untiring efforts succeeded in getting enough money to build the new hospital.
This new hospital is now standing unfurnished, awaiting the next appropriation to furnish and support it. The old hospital still continues to do as much work as a hospital twice its size, although greatly handicapped for want of room.

22OUR NEW AFFIRJATION
MANY of our alumni have already learned through the public press of the new relations assumed between their Alma Mater, the Philadelphia Dental College, and the Temple College of this city.
To those living at a distance and who may not have heard of the change, the announcement will probably come as a surprise, while to all is due a statement of what the movement means and how it came about.
As is well known to almost everyone, when the effort was made to organize the first school for the teaching of dentistry, nearly seventy years ago, it was proposed that it be made a department of a medical school already in existence and of high standing. The offer was rejected by the medical authorities because of the supposed inferior status of dentistry at that time. No other way being open, the school had to establish itself as a separate or independent institution with an individual charter, building, equipment and teaching corps. Having proven successful, other institutions of like character gradually became established in several States.
Not until some thirty years after the establishment of the first dental school, and after the need of special dental instruction had become plainly apparent, did the medical schools decide to organize dental departments. Later, universities with medical departments, also, in many instances established departments or schools of dentistry.
The courses of instruction in the separate dental schools and those connected with medical colleges and universities have been almost exactly identical through all the years, excellent work being done in each, as shown by examinations before the State Hoard of Examiners. However, of later years, some preference has been shown by intending students (especially those from foreign countries) for dental schools associated with universities, a university diploma seeming to loom larger before their eyes than one issued by a separate or independent school.
The Philadelphia Dental College has noticed this gradual change of sentiment for several years, and for some time it has become apparent to both the Board of Trustees and the Faculty that an affiliation with some larger educational institution would be advantageous to its interests.
Temple College was thought of, but, although it had prosperous departments of Medicine, Law, Theology, Science and Art. it was not known that it desired to include Dentistry in its educational field. In a chance conversation between an official of each of the two institutions it transpired that Temple College did desire to have a dental college affiliation, but did not wish to undertake the establishment of a dental department de novo. Thus
23the way was opened for conferences and negotiations which eventually resulted in a federation of the two institutions.
Temple College has acquired by purchase the entire plant of the Philadelphia Dental College and the Garretson Hospital. This includes ground, buildings, equipments and outstanding obligations. The Trustees of Temple College become the Trustees of our institution and regulate all of its affairs. The teaching faculty will receive fixed salaries and be relieved of all financial problems. The Dental College will continue in its present quarters and its methods of instruction will remain practically the same. The Medical School of Temple College will remove to the Dental College building and utilize its class-rooms and laboratories in the evening when the dental students have no need of them.
As will be seen by Dr. Con Well's communication on another page, the name of the Philadelphia Dental College as well as its identity will be preserved.
What does the new order of things mean to both parties interested?
To Temple College it means the extension of its educational field to include an important and growing branch of humanitarian science and art. It means the acquirement of a valuable property well adapted to the requirements of its medical school, whose quarters have heretofore been cramped and inadequate.
It means the acquisition of a second hospital (Samaritan being its first), with increased clinical facilities for its medcal students.
To the Philadelphia Dental College the change means relief for the Faculty from cares and burdens of a financial or business character, so that all of their energies may be devoted to educational work exclusively. More important, however, than this, it means affiliation with an institution having an enrolment of three thousand students, offering fifty separate courses of instruction, a teaching faculty numbering one hundred and sixty, and a record for thorough and progressive educational work scarcely equalled, and certainly not excelled, by any other Eastern institution.
We believe that the new order will work to the advantage of both institutions by enabling each one to aid the other. It seems like one of those occasional combinations in other fields of human activity in which neither is the loser but both are gainers.
It is not too much to hope and believe that the old and honored Philadelphia Dental College, under the new arrangement, will make for better things in education and practice than it has even done in the past, and to bespeak for it in its new relations the cordial support of its three thousand alumni.
S. H. G.
24THE TEMPLE COLLEGE ALLIANCE
TitE federation of the Philadelphia Dental College with the Temple College will make no serious change in the general regulations or system of instruction, and will not change the name of the College. The ideas of the new administration are to bring the Dental College into the university grade of our college classification, and put it into close alliance with the Medical School; enlarging the opportunities for the Dental students in medical or surgical studies, and giving them a diploma from an institution recognized by the State as of a college and university grade.
The new Board of Trustees of the Dental College have no other purpose than to aid in a great benevolent enterprise for the good of mankind. They intend to open to a large class of men of high character, good education and clear minds the opportunity to become dentists of the first rank. They intend to make the Dental College a contributor to advanced science by encouraging skill and invention, and by putting into use the latest and best appliances. They intend to make the College an important practical aid to its' alumni, and to the profession generally, in keeping our alumni especially informed in all the new methods or appliances introduced into professional use anywhere.
We propose to ask friends to endow special chairs for original research, and for donations for the aid of deserving students. All money received by the College for tuitions, and all grants to it by gift or will, shall be used exclusively to advance and maintain the work of the Dental College. We will not be satisfied with second-rate work, nor with a second-rate place.

IMEON HAYDEN GUILFORD was born in Lebanon, Pa., April n. 1841. His father, Simeon Guilford, born in Massachusetts, was a celebrated civil engineer and iron manufacturer, while his grandfather, Simeon Guilford, was an ensign under Washington in the American Revolution. He received his preliminary education at the Lebanon and Lititz Academies. In 1858 he entered the Sophomore class of Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, Pa., and was graduated with the degree of A. B. in 1861.
After teaching school for one year he entered the U. S. Volunteer service in 1862 as a private in Co. E., 127th Regiment. Pennsylvania Volunteers. He participated actively in the battles of Fredericksburg, Va., December, 1862, and Chanccllorsville, May, 1863, after which his regiment was mustered out of service.
In the summer of 1863 he began the study of dentistry, attending lectures during the winter of 1863-64 and 1864-65 at the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery, receiving his degree of D. D. S. in February, 1865. In 1864 he received the degree of A. M. from his Alma Mater, and in 1886 the honorary degree of Ph. D. from the same institution. In 1884 he also received the honorary degree of D. D. S. from the Philadelphia Dental College.
He began the practice of dentistry in his native town of Lebanon in 1865, and at the end of seven years removed to Philadelphia.
In 1881 he was elected Professor of Operative and Prosthetic Dentistry and Orthodontia, which chair he still holds. Upon the death of Professor Garretson in October, 1895, he succeeded to the Deanship and continued as head of the Faculty until June, 1905, when he resigned the office.
Professor Guilford is the author of two works—“Nitrous Oxile," published in 1887, and “Orthodontia," published in 1889. The latter is a college text-book, and is now in its third edition. He also wrote the sections on “Orthodontia," “Anomalies of the Teeth and Maxillae" and “Hypercemen-tosis" for the American System of Dentistry, and the chapters on “Preparation of Cavities" and “Contour Fillings" for the American Text-book of Operative Dentistry.

3iTHOMAS COOK STELLWAGEN, M. A., M. D., D. D. S.
Professor of Physiology
THOMAS COOK STELLWAGEN was born in Philadelphia, Pa., July 24. 1841. and was graduated at Philadelphia Central High School as B. A. in 1859, and received the degree of M. A. in 1864. He studied dentistry in 1859 tinder Dr. N. L. Dickey, of New Orleans, and at the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery in 1859, '60 and '61, graduating as D. D, S. in 1861.
He served as Paymaster in the U. S. Navy in 1861. taking part in several engagements, and on blockade duty until 1863, when he went to the Mediterranean to join the U. S. ship “Constellation,'' the senior of the fleet that his father commanded.
In 1865 he resigned from the U. S. Navy, resumed practice in his native city and accepted the demonstratorship of Operative Dentistry in the Philadelphia Dental College, from which he received the ad eundem degree March 1. 1866.
After two years more of study in the Medical Department of the University of Pennsylvania he obtained the degree of M. D. The same year, 1868, he was elected to the chair of Dental Histology and Operative Dentistry in the Philadelphia Dental College. In 1870 he was given the chair of Operative Dentistry and Dental Pathology. Finally, in 1879, upon the death of his professional life-long friend, Professor John H. McQuillen, M. D., D. D. S., the founder of the college, the professorship of Physiology thus sadly vacated was by the Board of Trustees, at the recommendation of the Faculty, conferred upon him. Since 1861 he has taken a lively interest in the Pennsylvania State Dental Society, being one of its original members, of which he was its first Secretary and later President; American Dental Association, National Dental Association, and Dental Society of Massachusetts. Among foreign societies he is one of the two corresponding members in the Unites States of the Odontological Society of Great Britain, to which he was elected after he had edited the American Edition of Coleman’s Dental Surgery and Pathology. He is also a member of the American Medical Association, the Pennsylvania State Medical Society, and ex-President of the Delaware County Medical Society.
32THOMAS COOK STELLWAGEN, A. M., M. D., D. D. S.LEOPOLD GREENBAUM, M. D., D. D. S.
Professor of Materia Medica, Anaesthesia and Odontotechny
LEOPOLD GREENBAUM, M. D.. D. D. S.. was born in Arva, Austria, October 9, 1858. His early education was received in the schools of his native town and continued in the public schools of Philadelphia.
At the age of fifteen he returned to Austria, and for three years resided in Vienna to complete his preliminary education.
In 1879 he matriculated as a student in the Philadelphia Dental College and graduated with the degree of D. D. S. in February, 1881. His activity in college matters resulted in his selection as quiz-master by his classmates and he continued in this capacity until his entrance into the Faculty, quizzing upon all subjects taught in the college. His first official appointment, received in 1881, was that of assistant to the chair of Materia Mcdica and Chemistry. In 1886 he entered the Medico-Chirurgical College, then in alliance with the Philadelphia Dental College, as student in medicine, and received the M. D. in 1888. A few years later he was appointed lecturer and given direction to the subject of Materia Medica. The retirement of Professor Henry I. Door in 1896 left vacant the professorship of Anaesthesia and Anaesthetics, and to this in the same year Professor Greenbaum succeeded, the subject of Materia Medica being added to his chair.
He was the moving spirit in the organization of the Garretsonian Society and the originator of the idea of establishing a college magazine for the purpose of bringing the alumni in closer relations with the institution.
Since the first issue of the Stomatologist he has been its editor and its virtual publisher as well. He is devoted to the interests of the school and cheerfully assumes any labor that will advance its welfare.
He is a member of the National and State Societies and the Academy of Stomatology.
34LEOPOLD GREENBAUM, M. D., D D. S.HENRY C. BOENNING, M. D.
Professor of Anatomy and Surgery, Surgeon in charge of the Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery, etc.
ENRY C. BOENNING. M.D., was horn in Philadelphia. Pa., September 5, 1857. He was educated in private schools. In 1874 he began newspaper work, being connected with the Chicago Inter-Ocean and later for some years with Harper’s Magazine. In 1876 he began the study of medicine at the Jefferson Medical College, where he graduated in 1879, receiving the first honor—The Henry C. Lea prize of $100 for the highest class averages for three consecutive college years. Soon after graduating he secured appointment as resident physician to the Philadelphia Hospital, receiving the highest average at the competitive examination over one hundred candidates from all colleges. In 1883 he assumed charge of the Philadelphia School of Anatomy and remained its director until 1896. In 1884 he was elected Demonstrator of Anatomy at the Philadelphia Dental College. In 1886 he was appointed Demonstrator of Surgical Anatomy at the Medico-Chirurgical College and later Clinical Lecturer on Rectal Diseases in the same institution. All these positions he resigned to accept the chair of Anatomy. Surgery and Oral Surgery in the Philadelphia Dental College in November, 1895, succeeding the late distinguished Professor James E. Garretson.
Dr. Boenning has held many other positions of prominence and responsibility.
His six years’ service in quarantine work were filled with active and stirring experiments, and carried his reputation as a sanitarian throughout the country. Since his election as Professor of Anatomy at the Philadelphia Dental College, Dr. Boenning has developed the Garretson Hospital of Oral Surgery, performing many operations before the class and in private in this specialty.
Ten years ago, after untiring efforts, he secured a State appropriation of forty thousand dollars, twenty-five thousand of which was to be applied towards the construction of a new hospital building and fifteen thousand for maintenance of the hospital.
Two years ago a bill was passed by the Legislature appropriating the sum of fifty thousand dollars towards the completion of the hospital building, which was in an unfinished condition, but this part of the bill was vetoed by the Governor. It is to be hoped by the time this class-book goes to press that the present Legislature will have appropriated sufficient money to complete the Garretson Hospital in a most thorough and substantial way.
The hospital has a proud name, but it stands as a monument to the untiring work and energy of Professor Boenning.

Professor of Dental Pathology and Therapeutics
R. OTTO E. INGLIS was born January 19, 1864. at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His parents were Americans, his father enjoying a large dental practice among the residenst of Rio de Janeiro.
The first ten years of Dr. Inglis’ life were spent in Brazil, after which he was sent to the United States to be educated, graduating from the Paterson Seminary in 1880.
After a business career of four years his desire for a professional career led to his entering the Philadelphia Dental College in 1884, where he was graduated in 1886 after the then usual two years’ course.
In 1887 Dr. Inglis, in conjunction with Dr. J. Foster Flagg, published a quiz compend, based upon the teachings of the latter. In 1888 he became Demonstrator of Operative Dentistry at the Philadelphia Dental College, and continued in that capacity until 1890, in which year he left for Rio de Janeiro. He practiced there for three years and then returned to the Philadelphia Dental College.
During the sessions of 1898-9, 1899-00 he occupied the position of special lecturer on Dental Pathology and Therapeutics. Upon the death of Dr. Burchard he was elected to the chair of Dental Pathology and Therapeutics, which position he has since held in addition to being the Demonstrator of Operative Dentistry.
Dr. Inglis has been prominently identified with several leading dental societies during his professional career, and has written for several dental journals.
In 1904 Dr. Inglis re-edited Dr. H. H. Burchard’s Dental Pathology, which was favorably commented upon by the press and the profession at large, and of which a large edition has been circulated.

A FEW WORDS which I think will explain how it has been possible for each and every man to struggle through the mishaps and disappointments of our undertaking and eventually attain the coveted degree of our chosen profession.
Most lives are filled with half finished tasks which were begun with enthusiasm, but which have been dropped because the enthusiastic beginners did not have enough “grit” to carry them to a conclusion. How easy it is to start a thing when the mind is aglow with zeal before disappointment has dulled ambition!
It does not take much ability to begin a thing, and we cannot estimate a man by the number of things he commences. We do not judge him by his speed at the beginning of the race. It is the home-stretch that counts.
The test of character is in a man’s ability to persist in that which he undertakes until he adds the finishing stroke. He must have pcrsistance and grit enough to carry him under the line at the last heat.
The ability to hold on is one of the rarest of human virtues. There are plenty who will go with the crowd and will work hard as long as they hear the music; but when the majority have dropped out. when others have turned back and a man finds himself alone fighting for a reward, it takes a different order of ability to persist. This requires grit and stamina.
Let us look out for the period in our lives when we are tempted to turn back! There is the danger point, the decisive point, and how many of us have experienced this, and how glad we are that we have had the stability to persist to the end.
Nearly every invention which has uplifted man from drudgery and given him comfort and better facilities, was made possible only by a man of superior determination and persistence. Success has been the crowning reward to those who have persisted when others gave up.
Look out for a man who is persevering and who keeps right on when every body else calls him a fool for not letting go.
How pitiable it is to see a young man with robust health and a good education, wavering when an obstacle confronts him, doubting whether he will go on or turn back.
We may gain a certain amount of success without culture, and without brilliancy, but we cannot gain much without stamina, staying power and clear grit.
More young men have achieved success in life, with grit as capital, than with money capital to start with.

T IS a well known fact that the history of a nation or its people is a record of their lives and actions brought about by certain causes which produce definite effects or results. From this explanation we can easily see that the history of our class must be included, for we are composed of individuals who have come from homes scattered far and wide all over the world.
In writing the history of the Class of 1907, the above facts will be carefully borne in mind by the Historian, and we hope you can truly say when the history is completed that a simple review of our life and actions in Philadelphia and in the Dental College has been given.
The history to be complete must state the causes as well as the results of actions, thus it will be necessary to mention some of the causes which influenced so many manly looking men to leave their past surroundings and travel, if need be. far away to study a chosen profession. The spirit of the people to-day is activity in the way of aggressiveness. Our class is composed of men who have imbibed the true spirit of this day and generation.
It is needless to say in what various walks of life these men were found, suffice it to say, that they were not satisfied to continue in their previous condition, for they saw around them many others who were fast becoming influential men in the various professions of the day. It might be said, however, in passing, that there are many men in our class who had followed the art of teaching previous to their college career. It has been said so often that teaching is a stepping-stone to something better, consequently we find this illustrated in “Pop." our class President, who at one time taught the young idea how to shoot, now president of this illustrious class.
These men considered and weighed all things well, then launched forth in the dawn of a new world to enter the Philadelphia Dental College surpassed by none.
From the East came men of fame.
From the West they were the same.
From the North they were of renown;
But from the South entirely unknown.
This class gathered from all quarters of the globe: met, during the early days of the fall of 1904, within the walls of the college building entirely unknown to each other, so of this brief space of time little can be said; still, a few facts were gathered from this interval which will live as long as our class shall live.
111It may be well to mention some of the most suggestive men of our class as we first found them. First of all. we had a Green Chase near Brooks. Next we Gleaned Fordyce from Holmes, where dwelt an Ermann with Hopp man. Hix son and John son. A Rose near a Temple adorned the place where dwelt a White Lord and Gay lord, still Wright was wielded with Powers. A Stearne Crow ley near a Law ton suggested to us the magician Keller. Cornell, the mother of our class, with Smith the actual, doll and Felix, the baby, should not be forgotten.
As the people in a nation are of various types, so of necessity are the men in our class, e. g. One young man remarked when looking for a suitable room, “Mamma don’t want me to room where there are any bad boys, so I can study.” One other well-known man said. “It is easier to move than pay rent.” lie was frequently seen going down the street with his trunk on liis shoulder, looking for a new lodging. Of late he is quite domestic.
With a fair knowledge of facts previous to our first meeting for organization, when our illustrious friend Houlihan was unanimously chosen chairman. let us recall some of the facts as they have actually happened. At this first meeting the following men were chosen to lead the class: President.
Thomas A. Crowley: Vice-President, Charles E. Lee; Secretary, William H. Magann; Treasurer. David W. Gaylord. The Historian was chosen at this meeting for three years, arid he was instructed very cautiously to be very accurate in his work. For the accomplishment of any one thing a person must be very active, yet patient. The Historian kindly asks you to bear with him a few moments to see what activity and patience can do.
Our first year of college life was very eventful in many ways, for this was a year when we followed a small Junior class, still their courage was not lacking, for even before we had organized they attempted to rush us out of our workshop, but this was in vain. We scored a point on them, though we should not mention this now. as they are not here to defend themselves.
It was evident from the first that we were physical giants, not in size, doubtless, but in power. We grew so fast in our own estimation that the dignified Seniors, who numbered nearly 150 strong, came to the rescue ct the Juniors more than once, each time meeting with a failure in our own eyes, at least.
A number of our men were represented on the football team and did great honors to their friends, themselves and to the college. It was the men from our class who formed the college orchestra in our Freshman year and who have maintained it during our whole college career. Were we not loyal? It was our class which gave the wheel chair to the hospital for the benefit of the patients. This, indeed, shows our charity and. we hope, may establish a precedent for succeeding years. May the good work continue.
Many of our class will remember real well our first Hallowe’en in Philadelphia, and of the results. We were unaccustomed to such demonstrations, but. not fearing anything or anybody, we sallied forth and proceeded up Broad Street, giving all the snake dances we knew and at times compelling
I 12people to make room for us, till at last, on our homeward way, a crowd of street urchins armed with clubs and missiles attacked us, and it was as a swarm of bees on a naughty boy, for they completely routed us and we, bruised, torn, cut and bleeding, returned home the wiser, as a result of the evening’s escapade.
An incident happened in the month of January which metds special mention to show our bravery and chivalry. We had the pleasure of having one young lady in our class, and during this time it looked as though we might lose her, for a stalwart Senior often invaded our coveted territory and sought frequent interviews with the maiden, and this, of course, was resented by the members of our class, so one day we attempted to put this Senior out and encountered the whole class, but to the surprise of all the young lady was safely rescued and protected by the President of our class. It is said that Tom never does things by halves; as evidence of this we find the “Dr." still protecting her.
Time passed very quickly in our first year, for we were very busy in the various laboratories, lectures and quizzes. We surely enjoyed the year with Dr. Wilbur and his assistants, Drs. Charlton and Brodie, and in the chemical laboratory we thoroughly enjoyed Professor Boom and his cheerful ways, yet the work of writing reactions and performing various tests did seem so difficult at first; still, by the end of the session, he was plcaseP to pass us to the Junior year, knowing full well that we could not learn ah in so short a time. In the lecture halls we took a back seat, not of necessity, but from custom, and to the astonishment of our teachers we were fully able to grasp the profound truths taught by them.
A few words may be spoken of the social activities of our first year in college. The Historian, of course, could not be expected to be in many places at once, but an occasional visit to a certain street between Green and Wallace revealed many things which would make history interesting, and still, if written, might be made very interesting for the Historian. It was requested by several members of the class, some of whom have been previously referred to. that their names be withheld for fear some of their folks at home or even members of the Faculty, or perchance some of the State Board Examiners, would learn of their social life in college and conclude that they were all play and no work.
The year, with its trials and pleasures, closed too quickly, and the class was soon scattered from whence they came. How this short vacation of four months passed each one knows, for soon we found ourselves again packing our trunks and journeying once more toward our college which we had grown fond of during our first year. Some changes had taken place during our separation, for a few did not return to college, but many more came to join us, so that our numbers were somewhat increased.
As Juniors we were wiser and more united. We were planning on fun for the Freshmen, and fun we had. Many of us well remember the night we lined up on Brandywine Street to meet some of the Freshmen as they came from dinner, and invited a few of them to join us in a walk about town.
113It was not entirely of their own free will that they accepted our kind invitation ; nevertheless, they came along and proceeded to march toward the Park Theatre, indulging freely in songs and recitations, then down town near the City Hall, where they told their troubles, not to the policemen, but to the newspaper men. Their attire was not becoming a Junior, for they were dressed in Freshmen clothes.
In the early part of the fall we were becoming acquainted with new students and some new surroundings. Instead of one room for our work, we now had three, so you see we were growing more important to the college.
Our Junior year surpassed our Freshmen year in some respects, for we had a class following us which was as large, if not larger, than our own, both in number and size, but would that take a particle of our courage? No, indeed, for we encountered the foe and they were ours. In fact, they were considered a slow bunch, not only by our class, but the Seniors and Demonstrators spoke of them as such, and some of their own number were heard to remark several times that they had a slow class. It was with great difficulty that they at times found whether they were asleep or awake, so slow were they.
In the activities of the class our new officers: President, J. Evans Wright: Vice-President. Richard Aichle; Secretary, William E. Stearne; Treasurer, Joseph A. Borchardt, selected early in the fall, were wide awake and always ready and willing to do anything for the best interests of the class.
In our laboratory work under the direction of Dr. Mitchell and his able assistants, Drs. Bradburn and Bethel, we obtained the necessary information and applied it so well that our skill was in such evidence as to bring forth many words of commendation from our instructors and teachers. The work was completed by many of the class very early in the year, and the remainder was spent in the infirmary with the Seniors much to their displeasure.
We surely had our own way in college, and if we saw where some changes could be made to an advantage, our request was sent in to our worthy Dean in such a pleasant way that he could not refrain from granting it.
This was a great year for us in view of the fact that we were to give a “Prom.” in honor of the Senior class, and we were anxious to show our ability as hosts, consequently this big social event caused us to look forward with the brightest of anticipations.
Now it so happened that on a similar occasion, when the Juniors of the previous year instituted this glorious custom and gave the Seniors a “Prom.” we, as Freshmen, were of the opinion that it would be a fine thing, merely as a joke, of course, to keep the Junior President with us for the evening. Plans were accordingly laid and he was caught napping. It was only by the aid of three policemen that he succeeded in reaching the dance hall late that evening.
On the occasion of our “Prom.’’ to the Seniors, these slow Freshmen, above mentioned, decided to take all of our class officers and as many of the committee in charge as possible, but again we were wide awake and our
!l4officers were safely enjoying themselves all the time, and what’s more, not one was missing on that glorious evening. Attempts were made to take some of the committee and Historian, but as luck would have it we were all spared and reached the hall in safety.
The Freshmen, finding their plans failing, now growing desperate, sought to take some small innocent men from our number whom they later returned to the hall. Poor Jean was one of our unfortunates, who was obliged to part with his bouquet of flowers and allow them to be carried to his lady friend with his regards, saying that he was away for a time with the Freshmen. This we looked upon as a baby act and were not slow in letting them know it. A rush at the college a few days later settled it all when the Freshmen, tired, sore, and disheartened, found their way back to their own laboratory, there to remain quiet the balance of the year.
A trip to Mulford S laboratories was another treat our class enjoyed during our Junior year, for it surely is a pleasure to leave the college work in company with the managers of the business and Dr. Bacon, and see how all the methods for obtaining antitoxines are carried out. The return trip was very enjoyable, for while going through the different laboratories some of the mischievous members of the class quietly filled their pockets with ears of corn and this was made use of on the train for showering other members of the class; in fact, the floor of the cars looked as if sowing time was at hand, when in fact it was only the cold days of March. The college songs and veils were in evidence throughout the whole trip. The afternoon was spent at the theatres instead of in the lecture halls, for it was a holiday atid thus enjoyed.
Examination time rapidly approached and you could see little groups of men in various parts of the college as well as in the different parks near by studying hard and preparing for the finals not far away. It was quite amusing to hear the different opinions expressed by the fellows as to whether Professor Boenning would “flunk” many or whether Dr. Racon had prepared some germs for us to examine or even whether Dr. Stellwagen would require us to give the constituents necessary for a good square meal and expect us to answer by referring to some of our boarding house hash meals. “Professor Boom will surely give us a hard exam., I know.” some would remark, “for we were often very noisy in his lectures, and this is where he can get even with us."
Well, the examinations did come at last, but far different than we really expected. Some were so easy that about half of the class could not answer them, and others so hard that .nearly everv one passed with a high mark. After the exams, nearly all left immediately for their homes, where rest might be obtained.
A short vacation was in store tor us, and it may be interesting to know how some of our now dignified seniors passed the pleasant days. These experiences were told the Historian by the individuals themselves soon after their return to college in the fall. Several of the fellows worked a whole or part of the summer in offices, thereby improving their time and gaining more
• 15experience for their Senior work. Some of these men are: Ermann, Wright,
Baldwin, Du Plaine, Sutherland, Hixson and our Poet Wadlinger. Lee reported doing everybody, while Glean spent a large part of his time chasing alligators. Arthur Louis Jean was chauffeur for his father and in this capacity had wheels on the brain. White and Scammon were successful in passing the Massachusetts and Maine State Boards respectively, and to Fluck belongs the honor of being the music master. Keller was busy nearly all summer managing pharmacies in various parts of New Jersey, and Heffernan was very active in political affairs around Wilkesbarre. Borchardt was enjoying the sea breezes, while Johnson was timekeeper in the office of the Bessemer Contracting Company near Pittsburg. Brooks was working for Uncle Sam, while Chamberlain was working for father. Green, Thomas Brothers, Magann and Mother Cornell were all taking advantage of the excursions offered by the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company. Probably the ones who had the most fun were the house-to-house salesmen. Graham Hirzle and Oscar Glick. They found so much pleasure in this that they could hardly leave for college. Any coffee or tea to-day, madam? Others might be mentioned as being busy, but the Historian failed to gather the necessary facts to state as only facts are included. We must leave the rest for the time, believing they were preparing in some good way for the great and final year at P. D. C.
The time came when we were to return for our last year in college. Many changes had been wrought. The minds were all clearer and broader, the heads high and the shoes more highly polished, for we were all Seniors now.
One of the first things accomplished upon our return was the selection of a new corps of officers for our final struggle. No better one could have been selected than “Pop” Heilig for our leader, and he had already won the hearts of all his classmates by his cool head and sound advice, given mostly on the quiet. The other officers are: Vice-President, Clayton S. Johnson;
Secretary, Andrew J. lleffernan; Treasurer. John b'. Keane, and Valedictorian, Charles E. Lee. The other officers of the class are: Poet, George
Wadlinger; Orator, Harry A. Metzler; Prophet, Stephen J. Casey; Artist, Arthur J. O’Neil; Editor of Class Book, Clifford W. Vivian, and Business Manager, J. Evans Wright. With a corps of officers like these we could not help but succeed. This was a very important year in the history of the college, and our men have been foremost in this activity during the whole year. The first thing of greatest importance was the reorganizing of the Garretsonian Society. This has been a very eventful year for it, as the present officers have carried out not only the wishes of the members, but also the desires of the members of the Faculty. Several entertainments of high grade have been given, also lectures and a dance, which was enjoyed by all. Due credit must be given its President, Harry A. Metzler, and its Secretary, Joseph A. Borchardt, for their untiring efforts.
The organizing of an Athletic Association was agitated by various members of our class, and J. Evans Wright, the one to whom the credit falls
116in no small part, should be congratulated on account of his untiring efforts and constant agitation till the association was formed and in good working order. McMenainin, who has the honor of being its first president, has spared no time or pains in perfecting the new organization.
The greater part of our year has been spent in the Infirmary, where we have all met with the best of success with all our work. As you enter the clinic room before you may be seen a large blonde with curly hair, known as “Prince Golden Locks” by his hosts of lady admirers. He was a very careful worker, pounding in many fillings with great success and at times pounding some out with less success. To the left a short distance may be seen the clever acrobat workman of our class, known as Jean. He always performs on his chair while working. Further down the line on the left we find one who is considered the biggest lady-killer of the class, for he always has from two to four at a time waiting for him. His work was O. K. and he spends much of his time at the telephone ; in fact, at the house where he stays
whenever the ’phone rang everyone knew who was wanted and would loudly callout, “Agnew, you’re wanted at the ’phone.” Near the end of the infirmary on the left you find a very busy worker, always recognized by his usual salutation, “Hello, Doc.’’ Near our friend Sutherland is one known by his genial way and pleasant smile as “Hope” Caldwell, from the sunny South.
On the right side of the infirmary, working as fast as time will permit, may be found Crowley, so eager to prepare a cavity for gold that he forgets to use his chip blower and blows out the dust from the cavity with his mouth. A first offense is pardonable and it can be truly said it never occurred the second time. Further to the right we find the “Dutch Frat.” working in unison: so proficient are they that stages in fillings never need to be signed after the first month of work. Many more incidents might be mentioned, but space and time forbids these bits of history which each, doubtless, has gathered by observation.
117The infirmary work was, of course, faultless, except that nearly all the men would persist in taking tips. The chairs, of course, work by a lever on the side, and by the use of this the patients were tipped backward to enable better light to enter the area of operation.
To our class this year were added many men from other colleges, who, knowing of the reputation of the Philadelphia Dental College and the high standard of work and instruction, came to join us and add one more link to our class chain.
Life was not all sunshine, for in the midst of work we lost one who had come to us for the last year of work, in Albert H. Everett. He was chosen as editor-in-chief of our Class Book and as such would have made an able editor, but death called him to a happier place than dental colleges. He was a general favorite among the students and a man one could not help admiring.
A little of the personal history of one man known well by the Historian may be of interest to others, as it shows full well how we cannot know a man except by close association. This man has a quiet, unassuming way, yet very earnest and active. His activities are shown especially in his regular letter-writing to his friends at home. He was sure to get some mail on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He was faithful in answering it all, and this, you see, took three evenings a week, but he never regretted the time spent. His best trait was his neatness. He would stand before the large mirror in his room for hours at a time arranging his collar, tie and brushing his hair. In fact, he has always been a model of neatness. He is well known to most all of you as a good representative from the Wooden Nutmeg State.
Many more facts of interest could be given, but doubtless ’ere this you are all tired of hearing about the most eventful class history in the life of the college. You will pardon any seeming egotism which appears, I am sure, and bear with me when I say, our class advised its Historian to confine himself closely to facts, and this has been the constant aim.
If anyone has been slighted or neglected, surely it was not intended, and if some one has been exposed in any way please remember it has been done simply to present a complete record of facts, for these things shall live in our memories as long as this college of ours shall live.
Our class being the last to graduate from the Philadelphia Dental College, as future classes will be graduated by the new institution of which our s is a part. I refer to the union with Temple College. You know the Good Book says, “The last shall be first;” then with this in view we may yet stand foremost in our profession. We hope so.
We know that what we may attain must be due to the untiring efforts and services of our professors and teachers. To Professor Inglis and his assistants in the infirmary this year, and to our professors in the lecture halls, we owe all that we may hope to attain. May our hopes be realized, and in this way bring pleasure and honor to those from whom we have learned our profession.
Our Class History closes with this admonition: Always keep active
i iSand aggressive, and be ever ready and willing to live for others, then we shall reach a high standing in our chosen profession. In doing this we shall bring joy to our friends, teachers and professors, and, best of all, honor and glory to our beloved Alma Mater. If we continue as we have just started, our history will never be complete, and then all eyes will look to us as the examples for professional men, and we shall all be proud of our glorious Class of 1907.
EDSON JAY PRITCHARD,
u9No Wedding Bells for Me
These original verses which I now write to you,
Although overdrawn, will be more or less true.
So, fellows, be quiet and listen to me,
I’ll tell you in facts a few plain things I see,
Tom Crowley entered college in the year 1904.
He had some dental knowledge, but he thought he needed more.
He became well known in his class,
Even to our only lass,
Who made him what he is to-day—a Dentist.
This maid came to our laboratory, her instruments she brought; Tom wondered could he win her love,
We knew this was his thought,
As modern examples the both of them would pose,
Although Tom is quite nervy, he didn't dare propose.
In as few words as possible this little verse I’ll write.
These words he spoke to her in front of me one night:
“That’s right, my dear girl,” said the very wise man,
“Just study away as hard as you can,
And when examination time arrives and you get three A’s and one B, You find it is an easy task to graduate with me.
They both have formed a syndicate, and by this word I mean,
A syndicate in dentistry, as it is plainly seen.
Now Miss Lawton is a fine young girl, as every student knows;
She knows her theory pretty well, as her past record shows.
Before this poetry goes to print, to show no harm I mean ;
I hope they’ll both accept this from a classmate of deep esteem.
R. J. WILLIAMS, ’07.
Mv Dear Friends and Classmates:
'I' FALLS to my happy lot to be Class Prophet. In the history of our college there never has been a more brilliant class, a more intelligent class, than that of 1907, of which we are all its proud and loyal members.
Because we are great, because we have imbibed all possible science and knowledge from our world-famous professors, it necessarily follows that a brilliant future is in store for us.
As you, one and all, and 1 are separated far and near from our dear Alma Mater, years hence the entire world will read our history and wonder at our constancy and renown as dentists, but the secret is we are graduates of the one college. Not only in Philadelphia, but throughout the world.
One balmy day in June, in 1930, the thought flashed into my brain that a trip to Philadelphia and a subsequent visit to my most illustrious classmates would be decidedly ideal.
Arriving in Philadelphia, my thoughts wafted to the dear old College of Dental Surgery at Eighteenth and Buttonwood. With a feeling of duty, and bound by ties of loyalty to Alma Mater, I was quickly conveyed to the scene of my dental education. But what a change! The transformation was so complete that I could scarcely believe my eyes. Everything had been remodeled, not even a stone of the old building remained. A structure of Gothic architecture stood before me, and with a certain amount of trepidation I entered this beautiful edifice. My fear was soon calmed, however, by the appearance of a kindly gray-haired old gentleman in the person of Graham Hirzel. “Heine” did not recognize me at first, but by the presentation of proper credentials I proved my identity and was accorded a most hearty welcome by the now Professor Hirzel of Oral Surgery. The natural trend of our conversation was toward college days, and after the expiration of a few hours of pleasant recollections I was ushered, by liveried attendants, through the new building.
Granite stairways, marble pillars, huge silver mirrors and mahogany staircases were everywhere predominant.
At the head of the stairway was imbedded in gold the names and addresses of my classmates. From some of these I noted a few that I was particularly anxious to call upon. I was much surprised to find so many of them located in the City of Brotherly Love and pleased, too, to a certain extent, that I could spend some little time with the men whom I had become acquainted with while attending college.
122Completing my tour of the building. I bade adieu to Dr. Hirzel and prepared to call upon some of my illustrious friends.
I had scarcely gotten out to the street when my attention was drawn to what I at first thought was a street fakir, but upon closer examination I found it to be a religious meeting. From the outskirts of the crowd I listened attentively to the preacher, who proved to be none other than “Red” Pritchard. Rev. Pritchard’s remarks were followed by a selection from his quartet, composed of Menaker, Chase, Fordyce and Houlihan. At the cessation of the exercises I managed to congratulate these gentlemen upon the good work they were doing, and they assured me that this sort of a life was exceedingly conducive to their ultimate happiness.The "Dutch Frat.” had remained almost intact during these years, and I was royally entertained by them. Each of them were doing very well, but they had been obliged to ostracize one of their members for being non-ethical in his profession. Dr. Lord had opened an advertising office and was doing more business than the rest of the “Frat." combined. “Stump” felt his excommunication very keenly and blamed his present mental condition to “Mother” Cornell, who, he said, was to blame for his humiliation.
I next wended my way down Chestnut Street. My attention was drawn to a large sign on one of the large office buildings which read:
R. J. WILLIAMS.
“Money Loaned on Watches, Diamonds and Dental Instruments.”
Bob had done well enough in dentistry to open a large loan office.
When asked how he liked it, he said: “Oh. this is nothing new to me. I gained lots of experience in this line during my Freshman year." Leaving Dr. Williams, I proceeded to my hotel to gain a much needed rest.

HOT MK S
The following morning found me up bright and early, preparatory to a trip to Camden. N. J. Metzler, McMenamin and Hefifernan had opened advertising offices of immense proportions, and while not firmly established as yet, they hoped for a brilliant future. Wadlinger had recently applied for a membership in the firm and was about to be admitted. He expected to have charge of the drawing rooms, as he possessed ability of making patients protrude their upper jaws for the reception of the cold steel.
From Camden I went to Paterson, which, by the way, is the hotbed of anarchists. Dr. Rittenhouse was teaching agriculture in one of the local high schools, while Keller and Keane were Professors of Mythology and Landscape, respectively, in the same institution.
Going to Mount Joy 1 found Dr. Ileilig. He was enjoying a lucrative practice and the natives pointed with pride and admonition as "Pop” strolled leisurely by.
24Leaving New Jersey. I next went to Connecticut. Here I found Vivian and Brooks. The latter was hustling as usual, while "Cliff" was retired and living a life of ease upon the farm where he had spent his boyhood days.
Arriving in Pittsfield. Mass., I found Dr. White as proprietor of a well-paying hostelry. “Louis" looked the picture of contentment as he stood gazing upon his model tavern. He had gotten his inspiration as a tavern-keeper while enjoying one of his daily naps during his college course.
Dave informed me that Borchardt and O'Xeill had formed a life partnership and were running a dental college, with Caples as dean, in the wilds of uncivilized Spitzbergen. From the same source I learned that Dr. J. Evans Wright had remained true to his fatherland and formed a little empire of his own on the coast of Morocco.
Such, then, is the future which lies in store for each of us. In the beginning 1 insisted upon the fact we would achieve success, and in my closing sentence 1 can but emphasize the same opinion.
The college has sent forth worthy dental surgeons, but none more worthy to wear the crown of laurels which we don at our graduation.
Long live our Alma Mater, long live the dentists of 1907.

A cheer and a tear for the joy and the sadness
That catch in the spirit with words of farewell;
The tingling and mingling of sorrow and gladness,—
The birth of the Future, the Past’s solemn knell.
When we sever forever the ties that have bound us,
And clasp of the hand with a sigh and a smile,
Alloy and pure joy, there is both to surround us,
Not sorrow, not happiness, conquer the while.
Fast through the Past mem’ry seeks out the pleasures,
Fastening the heart, bidding Time stay its course.
Vision’s precision paints mind’s picture treasures And words of farewell seem of pain and remorse.
Then, welling and swelling, the call of Ambition
Bids Hope take the wheel to steer through the Unknown;
Deriding and chiding the thoughts of contrition
For hours and moments long past and long flown.
Bright gleam the dreams of the future,—Past’s sorrows Pale and are lost in the Past’s misty night,
Hope’s open arms stretch towards the to-morrows,
The happy to-morrows, the realms of light.
What cannot Hope conjure out of To-morrow?
It’s magic of vision sees all, start to end,
Veiling the failings and gilding the sorrow,
Summing up all in a last happy blend.
Life may be rife with the pain of our failings,
But patience and courage will conquer at last,—
Sealing and healing the wounds of our ailings,
Until we have come where our hopes have been cast.
Classmates, though Fate may have roughened the journey, Though narrow and steep be the path to Success,
What’s begun must be won, let your steps have no turning, But always keep climbing on up to the crest.
129Climb in the time of the journey’s beginning.
While vigor and youth brave the will for the task;
If the heart’s in the start ’twill make easy the winning,—
Hard work is a blessing that comes under mask.
Let Fear not appear to hold back in your mission.
Step to the front without fail, never stop.
Mind while you climb that the fight for position Is down at the bottom and not at the top.
And now, let us vow ere we part, that, to leaven
Our work in the Future where each plays his part,
We’ll treasure each pleasure we knew in “naught seven"
And keep each fond mem'ry tight-locked in the heart.
So, as we go. Recollection is lending
A thought that will help as we journey along:
“Naught seven" has given the start, may the ending Have years just as golden and Hope just as strong.

Delivered by Harry A. Metzler at the Class Day Exercises, May 31st, 1907.
AT THIS hour as we are assembled here, each and everyone is filled with gratitude and gladness as a result of our efforts, and yet beneath all there comes to us at this very moment the feelings of sadness and deep regret.
Gratitude and gladness because we have prepared ourselves during the few years just past to meet the issues we have confronted and successfully overcome by many hard struggles and nights of close application to hard work. Why should we not rejoice? Our efforts have been crowned with the success they justly deserve, and to-day we take our place in the profession of our choice.
On the other hand, a sense of sadness mingles with our joyous thoughts, a feeling of deep regret, when we consider the real meaning of our presence here assembled as we are at one of our last meetings as a class. For while we have reached the object of our college life and have gained our profession, the separation from those whom we have long held as friends is a thought that has caused our greatest regret. The bond of union and good fellowship, however, will ever be with us in memory, and it is my earnest desire that there may be in the future many meetings between us in person to renew the friendships that have been established.
Many events during our student days are still warm within our memory, and they can never be forgotten in the future, into which we look with so much hope of success.
The Class of 1907 stood shoulder to shoulder in many a battle for class spirit and supremacy, and the same sense of loyalty to each other in the past will, I am sure, animate each of us in our relations with each other in the future. Class spirit is a powerful factor in developing the best that is in the make-up of a college man. It develops class pride in high accomplishments. It animates ambition to succeed. It stamps the class character upon the graduate body of any year. I believe that the class spirit of 1907 is of the highest type and that it will move every one of us to efforts to attain the highest ideals.
To-morrow, fellow-classmates, we enter the professional field, each and every one of us resolved to do honor to our Alma Mater, to our fellow men, and to our profession. Our love and reverence for the institution from which we graduate to-day will never change. Her good work is in evidence on all parts of the earth, her prestige has long since been established and strongly felt by all its Alumni wherever located throughout the civilized world. Well
33can we be proud to be graduates of the Philadelphia Dental College.
As such our life work now begins and she sends us forth prepared to carry out the work we are destined to do. To do this in honor and justice, conscientiously and faithfully, is our purpose, so that we may establish ourselves in the regard and respect of our fellow men and the fellow members of our profession.
Our greatest aim shall be to advance the science of our profession, to enlarge our capacity to cope with the broad problems afforded, so that in years to come we may hope to stand in the high position of a Miller, a Guilford, a Burchard.
H. A. METZLER.
Delivered by Charles Earle Lee at the Graduation Exercises, June ist, 1907.
Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees, Faculty and Instructors, Fellow Students and Friends:
FOR three years the Class of 1907 has looked forward with much earnest ambition to this day, in which we step from the hard work of student life into the profession of dentistry.
We have pictured this day, as the day when we would take our places in the world as men learned in a profession, and the buoyancy of the moment within our hearts seems to bar a thought of the sterner responsibilities of those professional duties which from now on we must face. Very soon we will realize that we can no longer lean upon the resourceful minds of our professors and instructors, for he who goes out into life armed with the equipment of knowledge gained in his collegiate career must Strain every energy in the battle of life, if success is to be achieved. Success is the bright star on the horizon of the future. This is our goal. How are we to gain it? Let us consider the advice of those whose life work has brought them distinction, honor and success of the noblest type. They tell us never waver, determination and consistency in carrying out the principles of our profession and the principle of right living are imperative in all our life work. Honor and honesty must stand first, toward ourselves, our patients, and our work. They tell us that of such principles is woven the tissue of success, and if it is to be our good fortune to wear it and wear it worthily, we first must weave it of the principles and practices of our lives.
You, who through your president have this day conferred upon us the degree of Doctor of Dental Surgery, will find each one of the Class of 1907 filled with a spirit of loyalty to his college. Her high reputation and proud position among the colleges of this country attracted us from many parts of the world, and it is our purpose, to the best of our endeavor throughout our professional lives, in all our acts to add, insofar as we may be able, to her honor and fame.
Beloved Professors and Instructors:
Three years of close association and instruction have given to us, not only a working knowledge of our profession, but has also prepared us to practice along the lines of the most advanced professional work. For such a preparation we are indeed profoundly grateful, but another phase of our constant association with you has established sincere friendships and affections which, unlike our work in the college curriculum, does not stop. Be-
135tween many of you and the Class of 1907 there have been established sentiments strong as the love of brother for brother, and towards some large respect and a reverence so firmly rooted that it must grow as years go on, and when we come to look back to our Alma Mater with pride and love it will be with feelings of love to you who have guided and guarded us during our college life.
You who are to fill the places left vacant by us to-day, we wish you success in your future studies. Make it your purpose to live true to the work before you, that you may, at the completion of your final course, realize the satisfaction and delight which belong this day to us. We wish your every effort to be crowned with success.
To-day we assemble as a student body for the last time. With, however, a strong hope among us that the Class of 1907 may from time to time reassemble—to celebrate the anniversary of this our day for graduation.
Previous classes have often shown, on the final day of the college career, . vacancies along the line of the ranks they formed as they stood shoulder to shoulder when they entered upon their Freshman year, due to Him who maketh the destiny of all. It is with regret that we look at the empty places of those who were our classmates. We cherish their memory as true and loyal students. Could their lives have been spared, they would, perhaps, have earned distinction and honor in their profession.
Let us revert for a moment to our first meeting three short years ago. We assembled here as individuals who were eager to attain the profession of dentistry and, desiring the best knowledge attainable, we selected the Philadelphia Dental College. In this institution we laid the foundation of our profession and paved the path to this enviable day, despite our troubles and trials our resolution to gain the knowledge necessary to obtain our degree, forced us onward and upward to the reward we received to-day. Though strangers at first, the constant association with each other soon ripened into friendship and love, till now, as we look back upon our past college career, the pranks, the joys, the trials, the mistakes, the achievements. all form a picture that, as time passes by, will in the mellowing light of distance be an unfailing source of pleasure. There is pathos in this our last meeting as students together. From now on we must separate to take our places in the world to practice the profession we all honor. We cannot but have some failures at first, but to fail and learn will lead us to the highest places in our profession if we but apply diligently the teachings of our Alma Mater.
Let us always stand ready to lend a helping hand to any so unfortunate as to need it, and consider that kindness and charity have a reward much greater than material gain. Let it ever be our purpose to maintian the high plane recorded by the Alumni of our college, and in all things be true to our Alma Mater.
Farewell. CHARLES EARLE LEE.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends:
HERE is a time-worn custom that upon occasions of this kind the presiding officer is to express the greetings of the class to our appreciative friends.
'Tis my ardent wish that I, as the representative of the class, had the ability to convince you, our friends, that we do not welcome you as a matter of form or established precedent, but from the depth of our hearts individually and as a class we bid you a most cordial and sincere welcome to the exercises of 07 of the Philadelphia Dental College.
Those of our friends who live in this city come in contact enough with student life on all sides of them to know that it is a strenuous one: while our friends who come from other places have been, long ere this, forcefully impressed with the fact that we labored and toiled long and late during the three years just completed. In view of these facts it is reasonable to suppose that our friends from far and near appreciate the efforts we have made and that due “mede and praise” will be given.
The results of our efforts will be felt by the public both directly and indirectly. They will by their support and patronage signify whether we have made a success of our chosen profession or whether we have missed our calling and gone astray of our “destiny.”
The profession of dentistry is but in its developing stage, and its demands on us, if we are truly sincere, are many and great. There are some very helpful and ingenious lives devoted to the dental profession: but they must go the way of all flesh and their places must be filled by others equally as great or excelling in greatness.
The public, too, have a part to play in this advancement. They have responded very encouragingly in the more recent past, and have been keen to realize the advantages of dental art: and they are markedly manifesting a growing demand for that which is the best that dentistry can produce.
If we, the Class of ’07. can convince our patrons that our efforts are devoted unselfishly to their comfort, and that we are earnest and enthusiastic in our profession, we will have done much toward bringing it to the high esteem which it justly deserves.
We seem to be living in an age of reforms, but with the enviable position that old “P. D. C.” holds among the dental colleges of the world, and with the recent changes brought about and the proposed advances to be made, Philadelphia Dental should attain such a position among the professional colleges as to insure its perpetuity. And if we keep in close touch with our Alma Mater and with the advanced ideas of the dental world, the Class of '07 will continue to be. as it has been through its three years of college life, the Beginning of New Epoch in Dental Historv.
W. R. HEILIG.
Why Me and Moran go to bed early
133Mrs. Charles Earle Lee, who has dealt out gold and smiles to the boys all year, has been a great friend to us. and to show our appreciation of her favors we deem it proper that her picture shall be placed in this book.
What wondrous inventions this age has achieved.
We oft hear it said, we could not have believed;
A ship could be built with prospects quite fair To take men a-sailing like birds through the air.
Then think of a ship like a duck in the sea.
That will dive under water and sail just as free.
We've harnessed the lightning to give us a power,
And can use it the same in sunshine or shower.
We can run trains of cars, and this is no dream.
Much cheaper with lightning than ever with steam.
The telephone, too, is a wonderful thing;
You can go to the ’phone and give it a ring,
And call up your friends and talk as you please,
And all can be done with the greatest of ease.
Just see the machinery that does all our work;
It will not grow weary nor ever will shirk;
The reaper and binder will harvest our grain.
Instead of more brawn we are using more brain.
Of wireless telegraphy, what shall we say?
They tell 11s that that, too, has come now to stay.
Our President talked with King Edward, the sire,
Across the wide ocean without any wire.
But what next they’ll invent we cannot conceive.
But something unncommon we can but believe;
’Twould hardly surprise us to hear very soon That some owe had talked with the man in the moon.
Or perhaps they will wish to know more of the stars,
For much now is said of the people of Mars.

142M3HISTORY OF THE FRESHMAN CLASS
N THE morning of the 16th of October the Class of 09 had assembled in the Freshman Laboratory to try to find something better to do than trying to solve the Mystic Maze of the largest city most of them had ever seen. They were a green lot of fellows, but a fine lot
at that. One could early distinguish the tall, straight fellows from the “Brave Old New England States ' and the other States were well represented also. After throwing away the “buts” the boys put their heads together and decided to organize the “Class.” Well, down we hopped to the “Lower Lecture Hall” (the place we now try to avoid), and the meeting was called to order by Stanley Carrick. of Asbury Park, N. J., and the nominations for president were opened, and after a long fight the chairman was elected by a small margin to hold the reins of the class for the coming year. Next in order was vice-president, which fell to the tall, dark fellow from New York State. F. U. Brown, followed by M. H. Larrabee, Secretary, and J. H. Kane,
While the meeting was going on the Junior class tried to break it up, but the motion was put by the new Secretary to ask all persons foreign to the class to please vacate the Lecture Hall. This they bravely refused to do, so it was up to the class to enforce the commands of the meeting. Well, the fight was not very long, and the 08 class found the fire-escapes were not so broad nor so easy to travel as they were coming up.
The night after the eventful meeting the Juniors were out strong, and the “Fresh.” that happened to be on the street were taken out for a lengthy walk through the heart of the city (in clothes and paint other than their own).
The Junior dance and reception to the Seniors was held in Lu Lu Temple. and the officers of the Freshman class were invited to partake of the good time, but the Freshmen had not forgotten the treatment received at the hands of the Juniors, and by lining up on the outside of that stately building, and with the assistance of the Junior policemen, they managed to keep a large number of that class from attending the dance, and those the F'reshmen allowed to go in were marked by the (P. D. C. pure medicine mark) ’09 on their shirt fronts. Soon after the Prom, the class decided that the most of the Juniors were fine fellows, but one or two the boys could not stomach, and that the. next time the foreign matter tried to mix with the chemical constituents of old '09 they would be thrown out by physical force. We had not long to wait, for the war-cry of “Junior out!” rang through the hall, and he was out. This seemed to bring the naught eight out of the dormant state, and down they came on the small bunch of Freshmen; but
1446061 SSV10we put up a brave fight, and like Custer at Little Big Horn, died bravely against the great odds. But our year was not all rushes and play.
We wish in closing to give our kindest regards and esteem to Dr. Wilbur and his able and always willing assistant, Dr. Cornell, the Technical Demonstrator of our class, and many other professors whose work we have enjoyed in the other lecture halls and laboratories, and the Dean. Dr. Greenbaum.

148I was told
To hastily prepare For things that made the blood run cold, When witnessed anywhere.
My heart filled up with misery And plaster filled my throat;
A thousand cadavers rode on me Before I rode the goat.
The previous night while thinking o’er The goat that I must ride.
Strong hands had bound me to the floor And all my threats defied.
A host of phantoms rose to view That seemed in air to float,
And screeched. “That boiling lead will do.” Now then bring in the goat.
They dipped me in the boiling lead,
Then stretched me out on ice,
While one great mogul, smiling, said—
“Now skin him quick and nice."
This done, they placed me in salt brine, Then placed me in a boat To cross the equatorial line.
Rowed by that frisky goat.
His goatship frequently squeezed my hand, Then spilt me in the sea.
But when I reached McGinty's land I struggled and got free.
The spell of fright at once was broke And to my aching head I quickly raised my hand and woke To find myself in bed.
The horror of that dream next day Still filled me with affright;
Yet bravely finishing the play I rode the goat that night.
But whether he was tired or weak,
There was no chance to note;
Before I'd time to think or speak We finished with the goat.
Then up came many a smiling friend Who grasped me by the hand.
And who made me quickly comprehend Their aid I could command.
And now, while sailing down life’s stream My barque of fortune floats,
To gain such friendship and esteem I’d ride ten thousand goats.
