Varsity Club as Memorial to Burr

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The new Varsity Club building which is to be built adjoining the Union will be a memorial to the late F. H. Burr '09. Burr was the first president of the Varsity Club, was captain of the 1908 football team, and first marshal of his class. A graduate, who withholds his name, has offered $25,000 towards the erection of the new building, on condition that it be considered a memorial to Burr. The executive committee has accepted the money.

It is likely that some sort of a suitable memorial will be erected inside the new clubhouse, but its form has not been definitely decided upon.

The plans for the building are being rapidly completed under the direction of the executive committee of the Varsity Club. It is expected that ground will be broken about the first of March and that the building will be ready for the use of the football training tables next fall.
