beautiful Alden Memorial, a building for student activities and the general library. Plans for a new Mechanical Engineering building were also started. President Earle died before his program was completed. He was stricken during a chapel talk in February, 1939. His four- teen-year administration bad been the most fruitful and inspiring period in Institute history, and his loss was mourned by thousands of his friends. Professor Francis W. Roys was appoint¬ ed acting-President and served in that capacity until the election of Wat Tyler Cluverius in September, 1939. Professor Roys was then appointed Dean of Engi¬ neering. President Cluverius was also a retired rear admiral, with a distinguished Naval career, and a classmate of Admiral Earle. He entered into the work of the In¬ stitute with vigor and enthusiasm to carry forward the program that had been planned. With the Alden Memorial com¬ pleted in the spring of 1940, a plan for securing the balance of funds needed for the Mechanical Engineering building was put into operation, and numerous improve¬ ments in instruction and campus life were projected. At the end of seventy-five years the In¬ stitute has become a leading college of engineering. Its campus has expanded from six to thirty-seven acres, its enroll¬ ment from thirty-two to a fixed maximum of 650, and its staff from four to seventy- five. To John Boynton’s generous gift of $100,000 the re has been added more than $4,000,000, and the scope of the college has far exceeded the most optimistic visions of its founders.
