Excerpt from History of Tufts College: Published by the Class of 1897
N placing this book before the public, the publishers are well aware that they have undertaken a difficult task, but the time has come when the story of tufts college should be told; and although the telling of it has necessitated an amount of earnest work which stu dents burdened with the assignments oi the class-room can scarcely afford to bestow, the Editors, having entered upon the work, have done their best, in the hope that their efforts may not be altogether devoid of benefit to their Alma Mater. The results of their work must of necessity fall far short of their aims; but every available source of information has been consulted, and no pains have been spared to make the details given as accurate as possible. Doubtless errors have crept in, and if any are discovered corrections will be gratefully received. In compiling the biographical directory every possible means has been employed to render it complete, and any deficiencies are due rather to indifference on the part.
