Seattle Harvard Club.
A very interesting letter has been received from Mr. Joseph Shippen '60, in which he states some facts concerning the Seattle Harvard Club which will be interesting because of their significance. In the first place it is remarkable that in a place so recently founded as Seattle a Harvard Club exists at all; a spirit of loyalty and of live interest is shown by this, which is decidedly gratifying and important. The club was organized last July and has now a membership of thirty. Meetings, which have been held quarterly, have been addressed by Mr. Shippen on the "Foundation of Harvard," and by Mr. Geo. H. Hickborn on "Harvard in the Revolution," and Mr. Kellaher will speak at the next meeting on "Harvard in the Civil War." President Eliot has accepted an invitation to a reception in April and the Seattle Club will make it as much of an occasion as possible.
