James J. Storrow '57.
James J. Storrow '57 dropped dead in the new congressional library building in Washington Thursday afternoon. He was born in Boston in July, 1837, and graduated from Harvard in the class of '57. He finished a three years' course at the Harvard Law School and was admitted to the Suffolk bar in 1860. Since then his career has been that of a busy and successful lawyer adhering closely to the practice of his profession and rising by steady steps to a foremost place at the bar. He recently represented the Venezuelan government before the commission appointed by President Cleveland to determine the boundary between Venezuela and British Guiana, and it is largely owing to his clear insight and unceasing industry that the boundary dispute has been so satisfactorily settled.
Mr. Storrow leaves a widow, two sons and a daughter, the sons being Samuel Storrow '87 and J. J. Storrow, Jr., '85.
