Major Higginson served under Colonel Shaw in the 54th regiment and was his close friend, so the address is sure to be in the highest degree interesting and instructive.
Invitations for the service are to be sent to all the surviving members of the classes in college during the war, and seats will be reserved for them as well as for members of the G. A. R., the Faculty and the Senior class, but there will be no tickets. It is Probable that the Seniors will march over in caps and gowns and that the Glee Club will sing at the Service. The committee in charge of the service are: Dr. A. C. Coolidge, R. H. Stevenson Jr., and F. A. Burlingame.
On Monday, the 31st, at the regular Memorial Day celebration, Prof. William James and Booker T. Washington, who was given an honorary A. M. at the last Commencement, are to deliver addresses at the unveiling of the Shaw statue on Boston common.
