He was followed by Governor Ames, who spoke for the Commonwealth, Rev. A. P. Peabody, D.D., Dr. H. W. Williams of the Medical School, Dean Chandler, of the Dental School, Mr. Edward, W. Hooper, treasurer of the University, Dr. H. P. Bowditch, Dr. P. Brown, Dr. L. D. Shepard and Rev. Alexander McKenzie. The speakers traced the development of dentistry as a profession and glorified the part the Harvard School has taken in its advancement. The University Glee Club was present and sang several selections, during the evening, all of which were loudly applauded.
