Perry Davis Trafford '89, of New York City, has been appointed Marshal for Commencement, 1914. The selection is in accordance with the long-established custom of choosing the chief marshal from the class which will return on Commencement Day to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of its graduation from College.
While an undergraduate in the University, Mr. Trafford was the most prominent member of his class, being class president throughout the four years and First Marshal on Class Day. He was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, rowed on the University crew, and played on the rush-line of the University football team. In 1890, as a student in the Law School, at that time eligible for athletics, Mr. Trafford played on the first Harvard eleven to defeat Yale in the modern game of football.
Since his graduation from the Law School in 1891, Mr. Trafford has practised law in New York City. He is now a member of the firm of Miller, King, Lane & Trafford.
