He livedduring his first year of residence here principally at hotels; subsequentlyfor a number of years at 5801 Washington Avenue. His present addressis The President's House, 1146 E. 59th Street."As I was engaged for four months (June, July, August, September) with Dr.Harper in trying to get the new University organized, my first impression can hardlybe identified. Our offices that summer were at 12 I 2 Chamber of Commerce. Wewere extremely busy, as we were anxious that the opening day, October I, 1'892,should find the organization so complete that there would be no confusion, and thatmatters should move on as quietly and smoothly as if the institution had b'een inoperation for ten years. These plans were carried out successfully. On that openingday students had been registered, classes formed, lessons assigned, instructors werein their places, and no one from the quiet procedure would have realized that it was anew university which was just beginning. At noon trustees, faculty, and studentsmet in Cobb chapel for a simple religious service-there were no speeches."FRANCIS ADELBERT BLACKBURN was born in 1846; received anA.B. from the University of Michigan in 1868; and came to the Uni­versity from the University of Leipzig, Germany, where he took thedegree of Ph.D. in 1892.

His presentaddress is 1228 E. Fifty-sixth Street."The only impression of the first year that remains with me is that of the closerintimacy and more close relations with my colleagues in the Faculty and with thegeneral body of students. This was the result in part, no doubt, of the smaller numberof members of the University; in part, perhaps, of the pressure of the World's Fair,which compelled us to find food and lodging wherever we could and furnished a bondof sympathy like that of soldiers in the field."OF AGE IN SERVICECARL DARLING BUCK was born in Orland, Me., October 2, I866;received from Yale an A.B. in I886, and a Ph.D. in I889; came toChicago direct from study in Germany, as Assistant Professor of San­skrit and Indo-European' Comparative Philology; was made AssociateProfessor in I894, Professor in I903, and in the same year Head of hisDepartment.

There were hardly more than half a dozen houses at this time in thearea bounded by Kimbark and Ingleside avenues, 55th and o rst streets; and theseon the outer fringe. October I, carpenters were still at work in Cobb Hall, andceased their hammering only long enough to permit the very impressive first chapelservice to be held in measurable quiet. One of the strong impressions was the youthof the faculty. I came from a school in which I was the youngest member of thefaculty, to find three-fourths of my colleagues here younger than 1."268 THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINECLARENCE FASSETT CASTLE, born in 1859, was graduated A.B. fromDenison University in 1880, and received the degree of Ph.D. fromYale in 1888.

His present home is at 5423Greenwood Avenue; his summer residence, at Brattleboro, Vt."I was chiefly impressed by the wide discrepancy between the scant physicalequipment of the University in 1892 and the sincerity and manifest earnestness of bothstudents and faculty in the work of the first Quarter. This was all the more impressivebecause of the quiet, matter-of-fact swing of all this new activity, as if the launchingof a university were but a minor item of Chicago's program, in a year that witnessedall the important preparations for the World's Fair of 1893."WILLIAM GARDNER HALE, born in Savannah, Ga., February 9, I849,was graduated A.B. from Harvard in I870, and received the degree ofLL.D. from Union College in 1895, Princeton in I896, Aberdeen andSt. Andrews in I907.

It was in this addressthat Professor Hale made the comparison between the City White ofthe World's Fair, and the City Grey of the University, which wassubsequently embodied by Dr. E. H. Lewis in the" Alma Mater.""It is perhaps my best distinction that I was the first among the men firstapproached for a head professorship, to foresee that a great university could be builtup in Chicago, and to accept a formal nomination. The actual call came some timeOF AGE IN SERVICE 273before that nomination was made. Meanwhile, President Harper had come to knowProfessor Laughlin, and we were actually formally appointed simultaneously."My first impressions were really rather of the city and of its general temperthan of the University. I spent nearly two weeks here before accepting an appoint­ment, making up my mind as to what the promise of success was. I talked with manypeople and visited a number of high schools. I felt the vigor and hopefulness ofChicago life, and cast in my fortunes with it."When I first saw the grounds of the University, there was as yet no street in itsneighborhood, except the native sand, and no building in the blocks near the Midwaybetween Monroe Avenue and Washington Park. When I first came, the foundationsof the first building, Cobb Hall, had not yet come out of the ground."My first impression of my colleagues was of a body mostly composed of -veryable men, with very distinct ideas of their own, and of course with widely varyingtraditions of university experience They seemed to me full of life and full of thespirit of fellowship and mutual helpfulness. It was this which eased our way throughthe tumult of opinions."The early years were very difficult. The regulations of the University hadbeen made in advance, and of course could not be perfect at every point. Some wereunworkable, and were given up after strenuous discussion. Many new schemes werealso devised, and it was a common saying that we expected every day to find newinstructions in our mail box. This was natural under the circumstances, and a har­monious system was worked out before our patience was exhausted."My present impressions, which are not asked for, are that the University hasfulfilled its promise. The rest of the country doesn't know how good it is. Europeknows far better."ROBERT FRANCIS HARPER, born in Marietta, Ohio, January 26,1862, was one of the three of the group under consideration to be gradu­ated from the old University of Chicago, receiving the A.B. in 1883.Three years later he was given the degree of Ph.D. by Leipzig.

There was no passage across 57th Street, east orwest, nor any across the campus. The present site of Haskell was a swamp. Later,in June, 1892, I saw Cobb with President Harper when lightning had knocked downthe north end."OF AGE IN SERVICEDAVID JUDSON LINGLE is the third member of this group to havereceived his Bachelor's degree from the old University.

I spent the summer of r890 with him atChautauqua when he was full of his dreams. He told me then that if he came toChicago, I was to come with him. My official notification of appointment datesMay, r89I. I especially recall his enthusiam over the great graduate school we wereto create here-a new and greater Johns Hopkins in the West. I recall during thatand the next year the famous and inspiring Bulletins issued frequently, giving plans,calling for criticisms and suggestions."Cobb and the Divinity Halls were all the buildings ready in October, r892,and we climbed over ditches and under scaffolding the days just preceding the opening.The grounds were a chaos of sand, swamp, and dwarf oaks. Nothing but woodenpavements in the neighborhood, which soon began to furnish bonfires for all studentcelebrations. I recall the tremendous hurry to get Cobb Hall ready; the afternoonand evening before I worked with others of the force getting chairs and tables readyfor the opening day. Dr. Harper worked at it till after midnight."But I recall that next day there was order-the schedule of hours and rooms wasentirely ready and things went off smoothly. I recall that at the first meeting of thefaculty the President began deliberations by laying before us the regulations, announce­ments of classes, hour and room schedules, etc., saying that he had thought it well tostart things in this complete though arbitrary manner, but that all was new, subjectto the action of the faculty. Then began at once that" taking up and putting downof permanents" which has seemed an essential part of the genius of the plan.THE UNIVERSITY OF C;_HICAGO MAGAZINE"We had then an elaborate system of registration cards and devices, and I remem­ber students exclaiming over our surprising "system," how promptly they werehandled."I recall with intense pleasure, yet with memories of my trepidation, my firstgraduate class in 'The Beginnings of the English Romantic Movement.' No bettergroup of students was ever gathered at the University-for among the twentymembers were Edwin H. Lewis, Myra Reynolds, and Frederic I. Carpenter, all ofwhom became highly honored members of our faculty. ."I attended the first Chapel Assembly and recall the thrill of our first officers'procession in the new official cap and gown. I remember President Harper's wishto make our first public assembly as quiet and simple and religious as possible."There was an immediate demand from Chicago and the Middle West forlectures from our faculty-for literary clubs, educational meetings, etc. I was verybusy from the outset in such extra-mural teaching. Dr. Harper encouraged it heartilyas a means of establishing the University in the hearts of the people of the West."Snell Hall was built during the winter of r892, and I can remember the wildconfusion and jolly complaint when the women students moved into the unfinishedSnell from the" Beatrice." During the first year Professor Laughlin built his house,and I remember that from the Ferris Wheel it and its grounds were the only finishedthings in sight about the Midway." As I look back now, it seems to me the most striking characteristic of our earlyyear was the romantic' enthusiam and hope, the expectation of great things to beaccomplished, the feeling of splendid, new, large schemes which filled the minds of ourfaculty, students, and well-wishers in Chicago."ALBERT ABRAHAM MICHELSON, born at Strelno, Germany, Decem­ber 19, 1852, was graduated from the United States Naval Academy in1873.

Thestreets were ill-paved or unpaved, the sidewalks were of boards badly laid, beneathwhich rats held undisputed sway; waist-high weeds filled the parkways and dustedtheir yellow pollen on you as you passed. Great blocks of empty land, unsightly andunkempt, stretched away from the campus on all sides. Furthermore, the Midway andJackson Park were one huge stretch of digging and building in preparation for theWorld's Fair, which opened in May of the following year. With the Ferris Wheelbuilding almost directly opposite the present site of Foster Hall, and the whole lengthof the Midway one bustle of preparation to receive its population of the barbaricfakers of the world, you can well believe that this was not exactly that quiet, sylvanretreat which is supposed to be most conducive to philosophic meditation." After wading shoe-top deep in sand across the wide stretch of campus, I foundCobb Hall in those last stages of completion where the end seems still remote. Car­penters and finishers of all kinds were still in possession, and noise, dust, and confusionreigned-but not supreme. For in his office in the southeast corner of the first floorof Cobb was to be found a man who, in spite of all this chaos of preparation, washolding steadily on his way toward the fulfilment of the University's promise to openits doors to the students of the world on the first of October, 1892. It was under thesemost difficult and distracting circumstances that President Harper and his first facultybegan their labors. They had come from every hand, from many states as well asforeign lands; they had had scant time to house their families; they had yet to learneach others' names, and to make those thousand and one adjustments necessary tothe most effective work. In entire default of traditions and perspective, the array ofOF AGE IN SERVICEproblems was truly formidable. They had the educational conditions of Chicago andthe Middle West yet to learn, the value of the schools as s0"l1:rces of college preparationyet to determine, the acquaintance and friendship of the collegiate and secondaryeducational leaders yet to win. '"And yet, as we look back to those beginning years, our first impression ofunpreparedness and confusion fades away. The noise of completing buildings wasnot distracting but inspiring, because it was but the noise of our advance; the emptyand unkempt campus and surrounding neighborhood were but an invitation to comein and possess the land; the formidable array of difficulties and problems, taken oneby one and that by men who, while new to the present situation, were by no means newto educational administration, in due time disappeared; and we have come into ourpresent state of comparative preparedness by stages so gradual that we can withdifficulty realize the growth that we have made except as we think upon that twenty­year long journey we have come and contrast its beginning and its end."And we did open in full force and on time at 8:30 A.M., October first, 18921"ELIAKIM HASTINGS MOORE, born at Marietta, Ohio, January 26,I862, was graduated A.B. from Yale in 1883, and made Ph.D. in 1885.He has received also the honorary A.M. and Ph.D. from Gottingen inI909; LL.D. from Wisconsin in I904; Sc.D. from Yale, and Math.D.from Clark University in I909.

I landed at the Pennsylvania Station, and got myselfat last with many alarms to the Cottage Grove cars. A native catching my provincialnotes proudly called my attention to the fact that these superb vehicles were operatedin the latest fashion, viz., by cable. Then the journey began. At 39th Street we hadpassed the outer limit of what could by any interpretation be called civilization,and beyond stretched an indefinable desolation of mud streets, board walks, andoccasional house rows. I despaired of finding the new home of the arts and sciencesin this environment; but the conductor knew his business, and refused to let me leapOF AGE IN SERVICEoff till we had reached the scratched furrows in the outlying prairie which he identifiedas 58th Street. Sure enough, there was a tall red-roofed structure not far away, pro­claiming in its towering mass that man had once more taken up the war with chaos.Over high, stilted walks and finally through accumulated building litter I made myway to the door of Cobb Hall, where an immense press of carpenters, students,plumbers, mothers with young hopefuls, informed me, dazed but game, that I hadreached the University of Chicago."FRANCIS WAYLAND SHEPARDSON, born near Cincinnati, Ohio, Octo­ber 15, 1862, received an A.B. from Denison in 1882, and from Brownin 1883; A.M. from Denison in 1886; Ph.D. from Yale, 1892; and LL.D.from Denison in 1906.

The 'impression'which remains most firmly fixed in my mind is that of intense eagerness on the partof all to get to work, of belief that a great institution was to begin, of conscious pridein having a part in the enterprise, and of devotion to the President of the University,whose enthusiasm and activity were stimulating to all. I recall dodging under ascaffolding in front of the entrance to Cobb in order to get into the building, the work­men above being engaged in chipping away upon the words 'Cobb Lecture Hall.'Another impression from which escape is impossible is that a mighty transformationhas been worked in the University and in the region round about it, since those firstdays.
