EVEREND HENRY HOPKINS, D.D., LL.D., son of
Mark Hopkins, born in Williamstown, November 30,
1837, a graduate of iWilliams college in 1858, a Christian minister,
soldier, citizen and seventh president of his alma mater, died in
Rotterdam, Holland, August 18, 1908.
Dr. Hopkins was peculiarly the president of the class of
nineteen hundred and nine. Under him it passed three years of
its existence, and when on the twentieth of September, 1908,
funeral services were held in the Thompson Memorial chapel, six
members of the class bore his casket to its final resting place in
the college cemetery.
Dr. Hopkins was nobly endowed by nature, and his gifts were
secured to the use of the world in which he moved, by long
training and faithful service. Genial toward all, having a
genuine concern for the well-being of those for whom he was
in any way responsible, kindly in his consideration for others,
gentle in dealing with those in distress, whether their misfor-
tune came through unavoidable circumstances or through
thoughtlessness and folly, he made himself beloved by all.
