IN MEMORIAM A true " Son of Old Massachusetts, " a member of the class of ' 83 who has seen the college grow to many times its original size, Dr. Joseph B. Lindsay has been fondly called " Joe Lindsey " by students and colleagues for the forty years of his life at Massachusetts State College. While an undergraduate, he was vice-president of the Washington Irving Society which grew into the present Alpha Sigma Phi fraternity. A favorite student of Professor Goessmann back in ' 83, he completed his studies at Gottingen, Germany, and in 1911 was designated Goessmann Professor of Agricultural Chemistry. Since then, he has continued teaching on campus. No one connected with the College in 1892 or for forty years thereafter has failed to know Joe Lindsey, if only by reputation. His personality will stand out among his fellow professors. In the words of Cicero, " he was an eloquent man who treated humble subjects with delicacy, lofty things impressively, and moderate things temperately. " In terms of the advance of State College his name will never be totally forgotten. As a scientist and research worker, his fame likewise has long been established and his unceasing industry will in years serve as an inspiration to bud- ding chemists. His death last year marked a long and useful life. 23 MASSACHUSETTS STATE COLLEGE INDEX

IN RECOGNITION This year marks the retirement of two of the outstanding men on campus; one from the faculty, Dr. Joseph S. Chamberlain, Goessman Professor of Chemistry; the other from the administration, Treasurer Fred C. Kenney. Born in 1870 on a middle western farm. Professor Chamberlain graduated in 1890 from Iowa Agricultural College. After being graduate assistant at his alma mater for five years, he took advantage of winter vacations to study chemistry at Johns Hopkins University where he received a scholarship and fellowship. In 1889 he received the degree of Ph.D. for an investigation in organic chemistry. Years spent as a chemistry instructor and a research assistant and years in the Bureau of Chemistry in Washington and a year in Germany with the noted Emil Abderholden, led to his appointment to the M.A.C. chemistry staff in 1909. His achievements are many. He has written two texts on chemistry. He is a councillor of the A.C.S. and a fellow in the American Association for the Advance- ment of Science. From 1928 to 1934 he was he ad of the Chemistry department, be- sides being professor of organic chemistry. From 1934 to the present he has been Goessman Professor of Chemistry. But he was not the cold scientist in his thirty-one years at " Aggie " and State. He has always shown a deep interest in the success of all students with whom he has come in contact, offering advice and encouragement. With a record as lengthy and serviceable. Treasurer Kenney has also retired this year. Born of pioneer stock in Michigan in 1869, he has lived a full life. In the course of time he has been affiliated with the U.S. Army, the M. N. Railroad, Michigan Agricultural College and finally State College. The College owes Treasurer Kenney a tribute for his good judgment of char- acter, his accurate and methodical work, and his shrewd business sense.
