William Thornton Parker, Jr.


William T. Parker, Jr., 3L, died at the Cambridge Hospital, yesterday afternoon, shortly after three. His death, though sudden, was not entirely unexpected, as he had been ill a short time suffering from cerebral-hemorrhage.

Parker graduated with honors from the Institute of Technology in 1897, and in the fall of the same year entered the Harvard Law School. He immediately became interested in rowing and for three successive years rowed in one of the Law School eights. In the Weld class races of 1899, Parker rowed bow in the winning Law School boat.

Closely connected as he was with Harvard athletics, Parker was even more interested in his studies, and in all his work, both at Technology and at Harvard, he showed himself a deep and conscientious student. Earnest, true and sincere, he was respected and admired by the many who knew him--he was at all times a man among men.

The burial services will be read at St. John's Chapel, Cambridge, at half past one Saturday afternoon. The interment will be at Springfield, Mass.
