Samuel Allan Lattimore Samuel Allan Lattimore, Ph. D., LL. D., was a man endeared by his personal character to all those who knew him during his long connection with the university, and, as one of Rochesters leading educators and scientists, known and honored throughout the country. NVhen he died on the morning of February l7, l9l3, he was mourned by many friends and admirers whose love and esteem for him was expressed in the number of letters of sympathy received from all parts. Since his retirement in l9OS Dr. Lattimore had been Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, and for forty-one years before that, as Pro- fessor of Chemistry, had been in active service for the University of Rochester. Graduated from DePauw University in l850 he taught and studied for several years more, and finally accepted the call of the University of Rochester in 1867, taking charge of the department of chemistry. Largely through his efforts the study of this and the other physical sciences by the modern laboratory method was introduced and developed in the university. But his worth was not limited to his held of instruction alone, for both by his personal T2-'T' " P'-. Wu., tl if it? t fat is it .k it V .

As an adminis- AQ. trative officer, for three years chairman of the EXCCllt1VC,CO11l- ljftf-ll mittee, and for two years acting president, he also served efficiently. t,j.f'r2g-iarafsnh Dr. Lattimore's activities outside the college were numerous. it ,'i,,' lpxi and he was interested in some of the most important charitable and public organizations in the city. He was one of the organizers of the VVestern New York Institute for Deaf Mutes, a charter member of the Board of Trustees of the Mechanics Institute, and one of the first members of the governing board of Reynolds Library and later its president. One of the organizers of the Roch- ester Microscopical Society, he became a member of the Rochester Academy of Science when the two organizations became one, he was a member of the American Chemical Society since its founding i and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for years. His ability as a chemist was widely recognized, if f and his services werein demand not only for commercial Work, but ,eg also forthe city, state and nation. ,II iii But not only for pre-eminence in his profession and his varied activities will Dr. Lattimore be remembered. His was a rare com- Si bination of the liner traits of character, and no one connected with t ig" the university was personally more popular. His ever-enduring spirit of courtesy, kindliness, generosity, and cheer will live. A, - g Uhr Et ts 4tai-:af.n ....

This alone would be enough to make l9l2 one of the most important years in the history of the university. But the year was made even more memorable by the fact that the erection of two new buildings on the Campus was begun during this time. Of these, one, the first section of the dormitory for men, Kendrick Hall, has been completed, and the other, the Art Gallery, is still in the process of construction. These new buildings are important additions to the Campus, but still the raising of the million. dollars and more was the greatest event of the year. The need for additional funds to properly carry on the work of the university had been growing continuously for the previous twelve years. There was a great increase in the num- ber of students, but although the number of buildings to accom- modate them had increased, other facilities had not. The annual income was not only inadequate for the expenditures as they were, but there was also the need of more fully recompensing the members of the faculty for their faithful services and of securing new teachers to assist in departments already overloaded. To meet these requirements the income from three quarters of a million dollars was necessary. But progress was not to stop there, for there was another project in view. The plan had been formed of establishing a co-ordinate college for women, to be separate from, but in every way equal to, the college for men, This, involving the erection of a new academic building, would give the women an opportunity for college life and effective education distinctly superior to any possible under the present conditions. From the other point of view, as some of the alumni have expressed it, "the creation of separate colleges for -men and women will be of great advantage to all our students, and, in particular, ,it will strengthen the men's college both in numbers and efliciencyf' The accomplish- ment of this second object would necessitate further additions to the faculty, and for these the income of another quarter of a million dollars would be required, and one hundred thousand more for the building, as was later added. The great purpose of' raising one million dollars was publicly announced as the aim of President Rhees and the trustees in the I Q l H i I . 1 , , l", ,... , ..,,..,.. - pf lt f i li , ,Y , 1 l t,...-- . , - .. .nn 'K'-"'.'.', , 1,. 7 It 7159 .R .4 ' TN iight -1" 7 l if Li R wp w v'v,i5'6"-?'5'i fmlgu-hfvyfv 1 BQJAAQAQK A 49 .rift ..i.l' Gaia. 15 x i QKFN' 'Y Y
