Excerpt from Secretary's Fourth Report: Harvard College, Class of 1910
In submitting this, my last report as Class Secretary, to the Class, I have attempted no detailed analysis of the interesting materials for statistics which are included in it.
I wish rather to express a sincere and lasting gratitude for the opportunity which my position as Class Secretary has given, for acquiring an intimate knowledge of the members of the class, which is, and will remain, priceless.
I wish to express the great pride that I, as all other members of the class, must feel in its record, and a firm and abiding belief in its future. Coming to graduation with almost a score of men fitted to be leaders, we faced a situation which is now past history. Now, however, in looking back, it seems that what then appeared a tragedy really was, in disguise the obvious result of the coming together of an unusual num ber of individuals fitted for high purposes and equipped to be leaders rather than followers of men. The last ten years have shown this to be the case.
