After sketching Dr. Whitney's early career, Professor Lanman told of how, after graduating with distinction from Williams College, he had become interested in the study of Indology and resolved to make it his life work. His special department was Sanskrit. He was one of the most prominent members of the Oriental Society and of the American Philological Society, of both of which he was president. His genius is plain to all who see through his works the versatility of mind and capacity for labor which they reveal. Dr. Whitney's crowning achievement as a scholar was his Sanskrit grammar, though to the great body of his countrymen the Century Dictionary is his greatest monument.
