No department of the University has done so much to give Harvard its high standing as a University as the Graduate School has done. Its development as the "Graduate Department" before the year 1890-91 and since then as a separate school under that Faculty of Arts and Sciences, has of course been intimately connected with the growth, especially in resources, of the other two departments under the Faculty,- the College and the Scientific School. The Graduate School, however, has had a development in administration which has been its own and to which its present important position in the University is largely due. Under that administration the large resources of the University have been put to more extensive and systematic use in the interests of advanced study and research, and the cause of higher education throughout the country has been steadily advanced.

The part which Professor Peirce has had in the development of the Graduate School received a significant tribute in the minute lately passed by the Administrative Board of the School, and published in Yesterday's CRIMSON. But beyond the interest which this vote has as an expression to Professor Peirce of the affection and esteem of his colleagues, it has the value of bringing what he has done for the University prominently before those of its members and graduates who, not having worked with him, or under him, have consequently knownless of his services, but are now not less glad to do him honor.
