Resignation of Professor C. L. Smith
Professor C. L. Smith has sent to the Corporation his resignation as Pope Professor of Latin, to take effect November 1, 1904. Professor Smith's resignation is due to ill health, which has made it impossible for him to carry on the full work of his professorship. He will, however, continue to give Classical Philology 41.
