Excerpt from Alumni Register of Officers, Faculties and Graduates, 1837-1900
The present edition of the Register contains one new feature which needs some explanation, - that of the historical sketch and of the character sketches, with accompanying portraits of many of the deceased members of the faculty. It was at the earnest request of many of the older alumni that these have been intro duced. When, after much consideration, it was finally decided upon, it was agreed that there should be no mention made of any who are now living, nor of any deceased who became members of the faculty after 1875, which will account for the omission of the names of some who have done much toward the develop ment and growth of the University. It is the expectation that these sketches shall be a part of a series, which, when taken together, shall record something more than the mere names of those who have done so much to make our University what it has been and now is.
For the first time the alumni of the Law, Music, and Art Schools have had the same attention as the College of Liberal Arts. The result is, perhaps, all that could have been expected, but is far from satisfactory. It is earnestly requested that any one who may know the facts concerning any deceased, or of the present address of any living, where the address is incorrect or not given, will at once send the same to the editor to be filed for use in the preparation of the next edition. The same request is made in regard to the alumni of the Medical School.
It is hardly necessary to say that every effort has been made to avoid errors and omissions, and to correct any that may have crept into former editions. Acknowledgement is hereby given to those who have responded to requests for information, and to those who kindly prepared the different sketches. Further more, it is requested that those interested, either personally or as alumni, will report promptly as they occur, changes of address, obituary notices, changes of name by marriage, academic and other official honors received, - in fact, any information that may properly find a place in this Register.
