Last night at the Colonial Clubhouse Col. T. W. Higginson gave a very entertaining address before the Graduate Club. Before the address a business meeting was held during the progress of which the Graduate Conference, to be held in New York next week, was discussed. Dr. Davenport was also appointed secretary of the Graduate Club for the term of ten years. This office has nothing to do with the regular secretaryship. It corresponds in a way to the class secretaryship in order that non-resident graduates may be kept in touch with the life of the Graduate Club.
Colonel Higginson's subject was "People Whom I have Known." In a most delightful manner he gave his personal recollections of some of the most famous personages he had come in contact with during his career: Edward Everett, Daniel Webster, Charles Sumner, Rufus Choate and Wendell Phillips, the greatest orators of their time, and in the literary world, James Russell Lowell, with whom Colonel Higginson went to school, John Greenleaf Whittier, Margaret Fuller, and Longfellow, who was professor of French at Harvard when Col. Higginson was an undergraduate.
After the address refreshments were served.
