The body of Ernest Cheney Mansfield 2L. was found a short distance above the Stillman Infirmary yesterday morning near the spot at which his capsized wherry was first seen. Mansfield left the Newell Boat Club on Friday afternoon, and soon after his empty boat was discovered bottom up in a sinking condition by one of the graded crews. As he did not appear, a search was instituted, and on Saturday and Sunday searching parties were sent out to drag the river for his body.
Mansfield's home was in Springfield, Kentucky. He was a graduate of the Central University of Kentucky in the class of 1897, and entered the Harvard Law School last year with his younger brother, who, however, did not return this year.
