NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

William Garrott Brown '91, an author and historical writer of note, died in New Canaan, Connecticut day before yesterday after a long illness. Born at Marion, Alabama, on April 24, 1868, his preliminary education was completed at Howard College in that state, from which he entered to advanced standing in Harvard, graduating in 1891 with highest honors in history. In 1892 he received the degree of Master of Arts and for three years after this he was assistant in the Library in charge of the Archives,--a position which gave him an opportunity to study and to write. In 1901-1902 he was University Lecturer in Modern History, giving a half-course on "The Constitutional and Political History of the United States since the Civil War.

He has always been in touch with men active in national affairs and has written many books and articles, some of which, notably the political ones, have attracted much attention. Two of the most noteworthy of these he contributed to Harper's Weekly, one on President Roosevelt and the other on President Taft, at the time when the former was going out and the latter coming into office.
