Ranson Davisson Brackett '01, formerly of '98, died at the Cambridge Hospital on the morning of December 22 at 9.20 o'clock. He had been sick two weeks with appendicitis, which later developed peritonitis.

Brackett prepared at Exeter where he was editor of the "Literary Monthly" and the "Paean" and was class poet. He entered Harvard with the class of '98 but left in his Sophomore year to go to work. Three years later he re-entered College with the class of 1901. He had devoted much of his time here to newspaper work.

The funeral service was held on Sunday, Dec. 23, in Appleton Chapel. Dr. Peabody conducted the service which was well attended by the students who had not left town. The interment was in the College lot at Mount Auburn.
