1923 Index, Vol. 53 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from 1923 Index, Vol. 53 When in 1919 we learned that our former student at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, Dr. Ray E. Torrey, graduate of the class of 1912, was to return to his Alma Mater to assume the duties of instructor in Botany, leaving his position in Wesleyan University, much interest was felt by those who remembered the tall lanky student of former years, whose thorough scholarly work as an undergraduate had impressed itself upon all. We recalled a shy, modest and unassuming student of brilliant ability, and we were interested to see the development which maturer years of study and experience in life must have yielded a receptive mind, full of latent possibilities. The return of the native revealed the old modest and unassuming manner, but the man in stead of the boy, of mental alertness, of strong convictions, the man who had found himself. Years of study at Harvard, of travel at home and abroad, of experience in the class-room had placed the unobtrusive student upon the higher plane of recognition of individual duty and responsibility, and had given the unassuming character the force and energy of self assertiveness.
