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

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

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.

T The University' gf' Rochester'
VER one million dollars h-as been added to the endowment
of the University of Rochester during the past year through
the efforts of the alumni, the Board of Trustees, and par-
ticularly President Rush Rhees. 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
