KENYON L. BUTTERFIELD. Kenyon L. Butterfield, the new president of the Rhode Island Col- lege of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, was born at Lapeer, Michigan, June it, 1868, and is the oldest son of Hon. I. H. Butterfield, ex-sec - retary of the Michigan Agricultural College and present secretary of the State Agricultural Society. Mr. Butterfield was educated in the public schools of Lapeer and Tort Huron, and was graduated in 1891 from the Michigan Agricultural College. In the following October he was appointed assistant secretary at the college, but re- signed this position in April, to become editor and manager of the Grange Visitor, the official organ of the State Grange, which he edited until that paper was discontinued. Since that time he has edited the grange department of the Michigan Farmer. This latter position did not occupy all of his time and he was appointed superin- tendent of Farmers’ Institutes and college field agent in 1895. He filled these positions with marked success for four years, being very active in grange work, especially in the legislative work of the ses- sions of 1S93 an( l 1895, and also in the general educational work of the order. He prepared the bill which became an act in 1895, making the appropriations for Farmers’ Institutes on an extended scale. As superintendent of institutes he organized the institute work on the successful plan still followed, making it one of the best systems of Farmers’ Institutes in the United States. As college field agent he planned and executed the extensive advertising that brought the large classes which have since entered the college. “During the past three years he has pursued work in the University of Michigan. He was given his Master’s degree last June and has nearly completed work for his Doctor ' s degree. His work in the uni- versity has been of such a high order that during this year lie was appointed lecturer in rural sociology, a new course offered in the Uni- versity. In every position that he has filled since graduating from college he has shown marked ability. He is certainly well-fitted both by training and temperament for his work at the head of the Rhode Island College.” Those who have known Mr. Butterfield throughout his college and public career feel that the Board are to be congratulated on their choice. They believe him to be an “able leader, a thorough scholar, and withal a frank, manly man.”
