The newly elected president then took the chair, and announced that nominations for vice-president were in order. John W. Dunlop, A. M. Beale, and H. D. Irving were nominated, and Dunlop was finally elected. For secretary and treasurer, the following nominations were made: C. M. Weld, J. T. Hewes, James Dean, J. H. Choate, H. B. Huntington, J. P. Hayden, E. H. Wells, A. Lovering, J. Bowditch, and H. D. Irving. This contest was settled only after four ballots had been taken, and toward the end the class did a good deal of vigorous cheering. In the final vote Dean had 125 votes to Weld's 84.
