IN MEMORIAM. MARSHALL P. WILDER. Resolved, That in the death of Marshall P. Wilder, this Board of Trustees has met with an irreparable loss, — the loss of a man who gave himself and his means readily, heartily and continuously to the great in- terests of elevating agricultural labor to be the peer of professional labor in the most pronounced departments of human industry; a man who sought to secure for the people interested in agriculture the highest intellectual training, and to so dignify the labor of the husbandman as to make it attractive to the largest minds by a development not only of its kinship to the highest qualities of man ' s nature, but by illustrating its immense scope in making necessary gleanings from the entire field of science as essential to a perfect, practical and economic working of the relation of the man to the soil, and that he has erected an imperishable monument in books, in shrubs and flowers, in trees, and in institutions for the benefit and elevation of his fellows, written and wrought by his own mind and hand. Resolved, That in Marshall P. Wilder we recognize the first Amer- ican advocate of the Agricultural College, and that by his public and private efforts the foundation was laid which culminated in the National act which, under the leadership of Hon. Justin S. Morrill, brought forth by national legislation the Agricultural College as it now exists in the several States of the Union. Resolved, That added to his great devotion to the cause of agricul- tural knowledge and intellectual and practical development, we recognize in him, under all circumstances, whether of triumph or temporary defeat, the earnest statesman, and the true-hearted, generous man who never failed to so recognize humanity, that side by side on the same broad platform of citizenship and manhood, the humblest laborer was elevated and made an equal as he listened in the field or the lecture-room to his words of counsel and judgment. Resolved, That we feel that no language of ours can express the great loss we feel in his demise, and that we tender our heartfelt sympa- thy to his bereaved family. Resoh ed, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of the deceased, and inscinbed upon the records of the Trustees of the College.
