Obituary

Fabian Fall '10.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Fabian Fall '10, of Boston, died by his own hand in Boston on Tuesday, August 17. His act is undoubtedly attributable to an aberration of mind, caused probably by undue exertion and exposure to the sun while in camp at the army manoeuvres. This strain was too great for a physique and mind already overtaxed with the year's work.

Endowed with a brilliant mind, Fall secured admission to both Harvard and Oxford at the age of 15. In January, 1903, he entered New College, Oxford, from which he was graduated in two years and a half, the youngest man to complete the Oxford course for a quarter of a century. At New College he played on the football team and rowed on one of the college crews. In the fall of 1906 he entered Harvard, finishing the work for his degree in one year, and gaining an honorary scholarship. In the autumn of his Sophomore year he went out for the CRIMSON, became an editor, the next year managing editor, and last spring was elected president of the Board. During his Junior year he studied in the Law School, and was this year to have been one of the advisers, from the Senior class and Law School of the incoming Freshmen.

A meeting of the Senior class will be held on Monday, October 11, to adopt resolutions upon the death of Fabian Fall '10.

At the regular morning service on October 8, the preacher will make reference to the death recorded above.
