The following minute upon the death of Francis Cabot Lowell '76 was passed by the Corporation yesterday:
"Francis Cabot Lowell was elected an Overseer in 1886; while still holding this office he became a member of this Board in 1895. During this long period he rendered the College many valuable services. He was interested in all the larger activities of the University and no less in the prudent management of its affairs.
"Deliberate in forming his opinions, he maintained them with great energy and skill, but always with a courtesy so natural and unaffected that deliberation in his company never degenerated into contention.
"Important and exacting public duties did not prevent him from devoting much time and thought to the affairs of the College.
"He was a wise, just, and unselfish counsellor and always a cherished associate."
