Marshall Newell of the class of '94, one of the best known of Harvard's graduates, was killed on the Boston and Albany tracks at Springfield on Christmas Eve.
The funeral was held Monday, Dec. 27, at the home of Capt. Richard Newell in West Newbury. The services, conducted by Rev. J. C. Sharpe, a classmate and personal friend of Newell's, were simple and appropriate. A quartette, consisting of T. E. Norris, G. W. Want, G. H. Remede, and Dr. G. R. Clark, sang during the service. Among the many floral emblems were tributes from the class of '94, the Harvard crew, and the Hasty Pudding Club.
The pall-bearers were; B. A. Waters '94, F. W. Hallowell '93, B. W. Trafford '93, J. D. Upton '93, Neil Rantoul '92, C. k. Cummings '93, W. B. Gage '94, E. Lake '92, S. V. R. Crosby '91, D. W. Lane '94, and G. C. Lee '94. A. J. Cumnock '91, was to have been among their number but received word too late.
