Captain Ctigar C Conlej) -^ CAPTAIN Edgar T. Conley was born in Montgomery County, Maryland, on his father ' s estate, in 1874. His early education was acquired at Epis- copal High School, Virginia. Leaving that school, he became a matriculate at Lehigh University, and from there was appointed to the L^nited States Military Academy at West Point, from the 6th Maryland District. Graduating from West Point in 1897, we find Lieutenant Conley, the next year serving in the Spanish-American war with the 21st Lifantry, Ijefore Santiago. Shot and shell had no effect on him though and after the campaign, we find him the same. He reached the grade of First Lieutenant in May 1899. In 1902, orders were received ordering him to the Philippine Islands, where he saw ser- vice in the Philippine Rebellion. On May 26,1902 he received the promotion to the grade of Captain, and was transferred to the 8th Infantry. In 1906, Capt. Conley served inthePulajane uprising in the Island of Leyte,and was later trans- ferred to the 15th Infantry. In the summer of 1908 he was detached for service as Professor of Military Science and Commandant of Cadets at the Maryland Agri- cultural College. Capt. Conley comes of good old Puritan stock, his ancestors having arrived in this country on that well known " packet " Mayflower. That his forbears were fighters, there is no doubt, and that Capt. Conley is worthy of the name he has well proven for himself. Modest of course, as he is, it is hard to learn much of his bear- ing while in action, but rumors have reached us from various sources, and these are praiseworthy in the extreme. Our acquaintance with Capt. Conley has been limited to our experience as cadets during the past two years at M. A. C. Captain has indeed been a strict disciplinarian, and a strict desciple of the laws of obedience and soldierly demeanor ; but we have ever found that there is always present the true kindheartedness that characterizes the gentleman. It is for this distinguishing trait and his great love for fair play that we have learned to honor, respect, and love this man, who, during the past year has really come to be a part of our lives. When we leave M. A. C, we will carry with us a great many impressions. Some will remain with us a short while, others have been so deeplj ' ' impressed upon 5

our memories that erasibility is impossible. Among otliers of these latter, we retain a firm impression of a man, a true Maryland Gentleman, an American through and through, a patriot of the brightest type, a strong, stern, able, and conservative officer, and last of these and greatest of all, a man with a heart as large as his body. It is the earnest prayer and wish of every member of the class of 1910, that the earnest efforts of Capt. Conley to place M. A. C. upon a higher military footing, will have been rewarded by the U. S. War Department, and we hope to see our name soon among the top ten of Military Institutions. That good luck, health, happiness, and prosperity may follow Capt. Conley and his family through all his life, is the earnest wish of thp Class of 1910. C?
