After a long discussion pro and con the necessary stops are now being taken to place a fitting memorial to Dean Shaler in the Union, where it will be seen by the largest possible number of Harvard men.

Of those who, as undergraduates, knew Dean Shaler, and were in touch with his wonderful personality, few remain in Cambridge. They have scattered throughout the world, carrying with them that priceless experience. It now remains for 1908, the last class that spent a full year at Harvard while Professor Shaler lived, to perpetuate his memory among the generations to come, by hanging his portrait in the Living Room of the Union. It is a fitting gift, for which the committee in charge should feel it an honor to arrange; and which the class should feel it a greater honor to bestow.
