Central State leathers College suffered a severe loss last summer in the death of Frank Nicholas Spindler. Mr. Spindler has been with the school since 1901. His energy, his originality, and his deep interest in the student body made him an integral part of the institution. As it is always with great people, his position will be filled, but his place will never be taken
A graduate of Oberlin and of Harvard. Mr. Spindler never missed an opportunity to transmit to those with whom he came in contact something of the spirit of those two great institutions. So vivid were his characterizations of people and his description of places that many a student has taken away from his classroom a feeling of personal interest in the colleges Mr. Spindler so truly revered.
Mr. Spindler taught in the Department of Education and in that capacity he influenced in a large measure the educational philosophy of the school. As faculty adviser for all student publications for some time, his influence was felt in the interpretation of the school to the public.
Because of Mr. Spindler's close contact with the alumni over a long period of time, he was appointed alumni secretary in 1930. The excellent record the school has of its graduates is due to his untiring efforts and interest in the alumni. This feeling of friendship was mutual for every student was grateful for the constant stimulation which came from his vital personality. The attitude of graduates was embodied in the question so often asked by former students. How is dear old Spin. ’ His place in the college may well be described by the lines from Goldsmith when he said.
“He left hardly anything untouched.
And touched nothing without embellishing it."
E. T. Smith, his friend and fellow teacher, voiced the feeling of everyone who knew Mr. Spindler in the closing lines of his memorial given at an alumni banquet in Milwaukee.
“In all your humors, whether grave or mellow.
You're such a touchy, testy, pleasant fellow'
Have so much wit and mirth and spleen about you.
That there’s no living with you or without you!”
