Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...and discrepeneies in details; but it seems remarkable that women chroniclers should have been the ones to have given anything like a connected narrative of this bloody episode in our history. (From Chicago, Its History and Builders, by J. Seymour Curry, Vol. I, p. 89 eb. nq.) One of the Last of De Smet's Companions Dies in Omaha At St. Joseph 's Hospital, Omaha, Tuesday evening, February 21, died Father John Baptist De Schryver, S. J., one of the last survivors of the many Belgian youths brought to America by Father De Smet. Father De Schryver was born at Opdorp. East Flanders, Belgium, October 26, 1849. He served in the Belgian cavalry in 1869 and 1870, and entered the Jesuit novitiate at Tronchiennes, March 19, 1872. Coming immediately to America, he made his noviceship at Florissant, Mo., studied there and at Woodstock, Maryland, and taught as a scholastic at St. Mary 's College, Kansas. He made his theology at Louvain in his native land, and was ordained there September 8, 1885. As a priest he taught at St. Mary's, Kansas, at Creighton University, the University of Detroit, and Loyola University, Chicago, and was pastor for some time of the Belgian parish of St. Berchrnans in Chicago. He was active until the early part of the present winter, when he was forced to inactivity by the cancer which caused his death. The golden jubilee of his religious life would have been celebrated on the coming feast of St. Joseph. He had spent in all about seventen years at Omaha, for he had been stationed three times at Creighton since his first going there in the eighties. He was closely identified with the history and development of the University, and is affectionately remembered by his pupils of two generations. CONTENTS-ii...
