The Shaler Memorial Fund, founded to establish one or more professorships of natural history, or of science in general, at Beraea College, Kentucky, in memory of Professor Nathaniel Southgate Shaler '62, has already received large contributions from various parts of the country. Professor Shaler, for many years a professor of geology at the University, was a native Kentuckian and very interested in the mountain districts of his state.
Last year in June the Associated Harvard Clubs at their meeting in Boston determined to start a drive for a fund of $250,000 for five professorships in memory of Professor Shaler at Beraea College.
W. M. Davis '69 is chairman of the committee which is pushing the fund in various parts of the country. The committee is eager to have New England make a good showing, especially the University. Mr. Joseph Lee '83 is chairman of the committee which will carry on the drive for the fund in the University.
