The death of Professor Charles Gross ends twenty-one years of steadfast devotion to Harvard University. His labor was unremitting even in illness, when his great fortitude banished discouragement and inspired him to continue his splendid service. Thorough as was his scholarship, his genius was by no means purely academic. As a writer, he achieved fame in no mean degree; as an editor of important histories, his work was of immeasurable value; as a teacher he was admired and respected. His name stands high on the long list of men who have brought honor to Harvard.
