Walter Mason Dickinson THE subject of this sketch was born in Amherst, Mass., April 3, 1 8 6. After graduating from the public schools of his native town, he entered the Massachusetts Agricultural College in Sep- tember, 1873. In January of his Junior year he received a cadetship in the Military Academy, through the late President Seelye of Amherst, then a member of Congress. Mr. Dickinson entered West Point, April 24, 1876, and w as graduated June 12, 1880, immediately receiving a com- mission as Second Lieutenant, U. S. A.

In the fall of 1881 he was ordered to Fort Cummings, New Mexico, where he remained neaidy two years. During that time he was in the field, and in the latter part of April, 1882, was in the fight of Steins Peak against the Apache Indians under Chief Loco. This may be considered the beginning of the Geronimo Campaign, as the Indians escaping from this fight and a subsequent one with the Mexican Regular Troops, formed a part of Geronimo ' s band.

In October he was ordered to Fort Hira-chuca, Arizona, and a year later to Jefferson Barracks, Mis- souri, on special recruiting duty.
