VV^ALTER HENRY DORR.
At the time of our graduation I prepared and caused to be printed
for your use my First Report, which was a collection of such facts in
our College course as were deemed to be of value or of interest to
you. In accordance with the intention then expressed, I now am happy
to greet you all with my Second Report, containing those events in
the history of each one of you which I have been able to learn, and
have deemed worthy of record. I trust that these outlines of the
histories of each other, during the last three years, collected for your
advantage, will be of interest to you.
In the preparation of this Report the endeavor has been to state as
briefly as possible the facts that are given, but to give every fact that
is known, even if some of them may seem of very little value or prac-
tical use. I have remembered that it is prepared for your sole use,
and have attempted to acquaint each one of you with the fortunes and
doings of the rest. To the eighty-four classmates who have answered
my circular, I return my sincere thanks for the assistance they have
given me. Under their names I have, in almost every case, placed all
they have told me, and am happy to hold myself responsible for any
errors or omissions which may appear in their histories. For the in-
sufficiency of the accounts of the rest, made up, as they necessarily
have been, from old letters, from reports of third parties, or from other
and various sources, the blame, if blame there be, must rest with those
In the list of our Class, printed at the beginning of the Report, all
those whose names are not in italics have actually graduated as mem-
bers of our Class. Of the remainder, five died during their College
course, six left to join the class of 1866, and the rest left during the
course for various reasons. This list is intended to show who are the
graduated members of the Class.
In the Report itself, I have deemed it most proper to place under
the first head, not only the graduates, but those who died during the
course, while yet connected with the Class. All the rest I have placed
together as " Temporary Members." Among these are all who have
at any time been connected with the Class, without regard to the
length of their stay with us. Two we never saw, some stayed only a
few weeks or months, while others were with us nearly the whole four
years. I have it thought better to include all than to leave out a single
name in which any of us may be interested.
At the end of the Report there have been placed a summary of it,
and statistics of such facts as it has been deemed desirable to record.
Those who are given as taking the degrees of A. M. and M.D. in 1868
are such as have expressed an intention to take them then.
The Secretary of the Class of 1855, in his last Report, gave some
amusing statistics with reference to the average number of children
born to the Class each year, and to each member. I must confess that
I hesitate to follow in his footsteps, and to divide one baby into such
small fractions as an honest calculation would compel me to do.
I wish to remind you of a request made in the last Report,
and to impress upon each one of you that it is desirable and necessary,
for Class purposes and also for your advantage, to give me
information of your movements, changes in business, of place of resi-
dence, and especially of address, and of any event of interest in your
lives. I desire you to send to me any corrections you may perceive
necessary to these brief outlines contained in the following Report ;
and always I shall be pleased to hear from every one of you, and of
your prosperity, and to give you all the information concerning your
classmates that the position I hold may give me. It is hoped that all
will be so thoughtful that, in the Third Report, no one's name will appear
without a complete and definite account of his life.
If these pages, giving to you some recital of the doings of your
Classmates since graduation, shall in any way strengthen and renew
your interest in our Alma Mater, in our Class, and in each other's wel-
fare, and shall freshen your lives with pleasant recollections of College
days spent so happily among those " ancient architectural piles," or if
the memory of such as are gone — of Paine, of Russel, of Smith, or
of Wellraan — shall make your lives braver and better, this Report
will not have been prepared in vain.
Hoping to be able to greet many of you at our first Triennial Meet-
ing, I wish all good things to each one of you.

* SUMNER PAINE.
He was born in Boston 10 May,
On leaving College at the
beginning of the second term of the
Sophomore year, he received a commission as Second Lieutenant
Twentieth Massachusetts Vohmteer Infantry, 23 April,
1863. He joined
his regiment at
Fredericksburg late on Satur-
day evening, 2 May, and early the next morning was engaged
in the battle of Chancellorsville. His captain, O. W. Holmes,
Jr., was very soon wounded, and Lieutenant Paine took command
of the company till the battle was over ; and he was,
according to all statements, calm and cool. He then took part
in the forced marches which carried our army to Gettysburg,
and in the battle which followed. He fell at Gettysburg on
Friday, 3 July, 1863. The following
brief memorial account of him, written by his mother, Fanny
C. Paine. Could the last words of one be more truly characteristic
than those of Lieutenant Paine, as told below ? —
" On Friday, 3 July, 1863, the Second Corps, under General
Hancock, held the left centre of our line, midway
is an extract from a
cemetery and the Round Top, — the lowest part of our lines left
by nature the easiest to assault, and thus the key to our posi-
tion. It was here that General Lee ordered Pickett's division,
composed in good part of veteran Virginia troops, and supported
to make their last terrible assault. Not a
by another column,
shot was fired by the Twentieth Massachusetts till the enemy
were near, and Lieutenant-Colonel Macy gave the order. Then
its fire was quick and deadly. Though directly in front of them,
the enemy did not reach them ; but ten or twenty rods to their
right the weight of the enemy crushed through our line, passing
over it, perhaps thirty or forty yards, up a httle hill. It
was the crisis of the if
not the turning-point
of the war.
General Hancock in command of the corps, and General Gibbon
in command of the division, had both been wounded. Colonel
Hall, commanding the brigade, was hurrying up his men. Lieutenant-Colonel
Macy received orders from him to lead the Twentieth
Massachusetts against the enemy. He gave orders to
Captain Abbott, who commanded the right company, and to his
Adjutant ; but before they were repeated to any one else, both
himself and his Adjutant were shot down. Captain Abbott led
his company ; and the other companies, seeing
and with the instinct of assault, followed. Other troops came
It was in this attack, in the thickest of the fight, and ex-
posing himself in front of his men, that Lieutenant Paine was
struck by a ball, which broke his leg. Falling on one knee, he
waved his sword, and urged on his men, and was at that moment
struck by a shell, which caused instant death. His last words,
just before he fell, were, ' Is n't this glorious ? '
" The Twentieth Massachusetts mustered that night only
three officers and twenty men. But of Pickett's assaulting
column a still smaller proportion was left, for there were few
who crossed our line without being killed or captured."
The lamented Major Abbott writes as follows of Lieutenant
Paine 's ability and courage : —
" There is one thing I can bear testimony to, and that is his
wonderful talent in making himself one of the most accom-
plished officers I knew in the army, in two months' time. His
memory and application were so great, that in a month's time
he knew the whole book of tactics and regulations, and commanded
a division in battalion and brigade drill as well as any
old officer, besides all doing his guard and police duty with an
exactness, a rigor, an enthusiasm, that the commanding officer
in vain tried to stimulate in some of the older officers, sparing
neither himself nor his men. When Lieutenant Paine was
officer of the guard, his influence was felt by the remotest sen-
tinel on the outskirts of the town. His intelligence and disci-
pline, and indomitable resolution, were so fully recognized by
Colonel Macy, that he often spoke of promoting him. Besides
Lieutenant Summerhays, who saw hira as I have described, he
was seen by Lieutenant Perkins during the action, — his face, ac-
cording to both, actually glowing with pleasure,
as it used in
Falmouth when he had the best of an argument. He used
always to be asking
me how an officer should bear himself in
battle, when he should be behind and when before his men. I
had alwa^'^s rather understated than overstated the amount of
danger it was necessary to incur, because I had seen at Freder-
icksburg that he would be rather disposed to expose himself
too much than otherwise. He certainly carried out to the letter
the duty, as he used to describe it, of an officer charging at the
head of his men, and he evidently felt all the joy he supposed he
should. His body was found close to the fence, where the
Rebels had their last desperate stand."
At a meeting of the Class held 8 July, 1863, only three
months after Paine left us, the following resolutions Avere adopted :
" Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in his wise provi-
dence, to remove from this life our beloved friend and classmate,
" Resolved, That, while we as a Class bow with resignation to
the Divine will, we moum deeply the loss of one whose whole-
hearted manhood and generous character had endeared him to
all who knew him.
" Resolved, That in this bereavement we sincerely sympathize
with the friends and familv of the deceased.
" Resolved, That, while we cannot but grieve at the death of
our friend, we remember with gratitude that he fell in defence
of his country, another name added to the long list of martyrs
to her cause.
" Resolved, That we, as a Class, wear the usual badge of
mourning for thirty days.
" Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the
family of the deceased.
Resolved, That these resolutions be printed in the papers of

* CABOT JACKSON RUSSEL. He was born in New
York, 21 July, 1844.
He remained with us only a few months. After leaving Col-
lege he returned to New York, and continued his studies there
until the spring of 1862, when he joined a party of scientific
men in a journey across the Western prairies by way of Salt
Lake. While on this journey he heard of the seven days' battles
before Richmond, the effect of which upon him is best
shown by an extract from a letter, written by him 10 June,
1862, at Fort Laramie. He says : " The officers gave us their
telegrams, which told all they knew, and these said McClellan
fought seven days, retreated, and lost twenty thousand men.
We do not know whether that is true or not, and I don't know
about Jim or Charley (Lowell). If anything has happened to
either of them, father, I shall want to enlist as soon as I come
back." At Fort Bridger, he learned of the death of his cousin,
Lieutenant James Lowell. He sent the letter containing this
intelligence to a companion from whom he had just parted,
writing across "
it, Now I shall certainly go." In another let-
ter, he says, referring to his loss : " Since then I have wanted
doubly to go, and I wish — how I wish— father would let me."
He immediately returned home, and of him at that time his
friend Mr. H. P. Arnold, in the " Harvard Memorial Biogra-
" He reached home before the time appointed, and
phies," says :
upon his arrival his friends were struck with the great change in
him. He himself felt like a different person. He had become
very athletic, and his clear eye and bronzed complexion testified
to his rugged health. He had not lost his winning ways, and
they evidently came from a heart grown more manly. But the
change was more radical. His whole soul was now bent on
joining the army. It was not merely the death of his cousin,
nor his sympathy with heroic enterprise, that seemed to in-
fluence him, but an earnest wish to perform a worthy part in the
contest. He was not appalled at the prospect of losing his life
or of being crippled, nor did he appear ambitious of military
fame, or anxious to join a crack regiment. He thought the
artillery was the most dangerous and honorable post, and preferred
it on that account : but he was willing to take the posi-
tion of private in any regiment in any arm of the service."
He soon afterwards joined the Forty-fourth Massachusetts,
and was appointed a sergeant in Company F, Captain Storrow,
12 September, 1862. He served with his regiment through the
Tarborough and Goldsborough campaigns, and returned to Boston
4 March, 1863, to take a commission as First Lieutenant
Fifty-fourth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry (colored), commanded
by Colonel Robert G. Shaw\ He was promoted to be
Captain 11 May, 1863. After staining in camp for a while, he
went with his regiment to Hilton Head. On 10 June, 1863, he
took part in an expedition to Florida, under command of Colonel

Montgomery. On 15 July the regiment
On the 16th Captain Russel was engaged in an action wnth the
enemy, in which he showed great courage and coolness. On the
night of the 18th, he was killed in the assault on Fort Fisher.
The following account of those days, written by his friend Adjutant
James, will be read with interest : —
" Captain Russel took part in the sharp skirmish on James
Island, on 16 July, where his company bore the brunt of the
battle, and he showed distinguished ability and courage.
the skirmish line was driven in by an overwhelming force of the
enemy, he was ordered to regain the old position, and to hold it
at all hazards. Accordingly he deployed his skirmish line,
advancing anxiously and boldly, with his field-glass
hand and sword in the other, rallying his meri by fours and by
platoons, as the necessity of the moment required, and capturing
himself the first prisoner of the day. He sent back word
to his Colonel in less than thirty minutes, that his line was
formed fifty yards in advance of the old one.
" On the night of the 17th, orders were received to join
General Strong's brigade, then at the front of Morris Island.
About three o'clock of the afternoon of the 18th, the Fiftyfourth
reported for duty to Brigadier-General Strong, and was
placed by him at the head of an assaulting column, then form-
ing on the beach in front of Fort Wagner, which was the objective
point. Captain Russel's company held the left of the
second line of the regiment, which position was the most dan-
gerous, on account of its proximity to the flanking fire of
" At dusk of that night the column was ordered forward, and
Russel, with an ardor and devotion which never wavered, threw
himself upon his death. When last seen by those who sur-
vived, he was lying mortally wounded on the ground, and across
him the body of his dear friend. Captain William H. Simpkins,
his comrade in arms and in death, than whom the country has
lost no nobler and more devoted servant during the war.

into military life ; and, from the first moment to the last of that
friendship, it presented him full of honor. For one so young he
displayed striking ability and strength of character ; so that
when, at the age of eighteen years, he was placed in command
of men of the Forty-fourth, many of them ten years his seniors,
his title to
graduates of the University, they gladly recognized
their confidence and support. Pre-eminently conscientious in
all his military duties, frank, sweet-tempered, manly, handsome,
he won the respect and personal devotion of his officers and
" From temperament and principle he was an enthusiast for
freedom ;* and no one entered into the war with a greater con-
viction than he, that it was bound up intimately with the interests
liberty. He had no sooner made his choice between the
promptings of incliiiation and those claims he deemed of paramount
importance, than his sympathies grew with the enforcement
of the negroes' rights. He would gladlv have devoted his
life, if it had been protracted, to this cause. As it was, he gave
it up in its very flower, with a zeal, a courage, a disinterestedness,
unsurpassed even in the annals of the war."
I can in no better way dose this brief account of the noble
hfe of our loved classmate, of whose memory we all shall ever
be proud, than by quoting again from the language of his friend,
Mr. Arnold, at the end of his notice of Captain Russel's life.
" The darkness of night hung; over the sufferings of that
sacrifice, where the noblest and the best appointed to lead black
soldiers to death, and prove that they were men, had obeyed the
order. When our fell troops back from an assault, in which
they were not supported, hundreds of dead and wounded
marked how far they had gone. Among those who did not re-
turn was Captain Russel. A ball struck him in the shoulder,
and he fell. Captain Simpkins offered to carry him off". But the
boy had become a veteran in a moment, and the answer was,
No, but you may straighten me out.' As his friend, true to the
end, was rendering this last service, a bullet pierced his breast,
and his dead body fell over the dying.
" Some of his soldiers offered to carry him off", but his last
order was, ' Do not touch me, move on, men follow ; your
and left ; they
him. He was not quite nineteen, and
he was breathing his spirit out in suff'ering, in the darkness of
night, amid the roar of musketry and cannon. But he lay by
the side of a dear friend, in the steps where his hero leader had
fallen, and surrounded by hundreds whom he had helped to
raise to be men and fellow-soldiers. There was no one there to
receive his last words of affection, but his generous impulses in
behalf of his country and his fellow-men were becoming through
his blood an element of the nation's life. No stone need mark
the place where his bones moulder, for future generations will
reverently point to the holy ground, where the Colonel and two
Captains of the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts were buried with
CHARLES BAILEY SHUTE. He was born in Maiden,
Mass., 24 January, 1843.
Li September, 1865, he became Principal of the High School
in Abington, Mass., which position he resigned in December,
1865, and took that of sub-master in the Brookliue High
School, where he remained one year, at the same time studying
medicine. In November, 1866, he began to study with John
L. Sullivan, M. D., of Maiden. During the winter of 1867 - 68
he attended lectures at the Harvard Medical School.

* GEORGE nOMER SMITH. He was born in Needham,
Mass., 9 June, 1843.
After he left College, he was private tutor for a while in New
York, and then entered the office of I. Henry Bowditch, M. D.,
in Boston, to study medicine. On account of ill health he was
obliged to give up study after a brief trial, and died of consumption
in East Medway, Mass., 23 January, 1867, at the age of
twenty-three years and seven months.
Smith's character was one of remarkable beauty. While he
was with us, his nature, delicately sensitive, and his pride peculiarly
intense, kept him retired from us, so that only a few indeed
knew him or his excellent character. At the Class meeting
called on account of his death, your Secretary read to those
present a letter received from him, in order that those who did
not know him well in life might know him now that he was
gone from us. As only a few of us could be present
meeting, for the same reason a copy of that letter is added, for
the sake of those who did not hear it read. It shows how
deeply he was interested in our Class, and also that sensitive
phase of his character which we cannot but respect and love.
It was written in answer to a circular, asking subscriptions
Memorial Hall. He writes : —
" Please read my letter before you make judgment
sum I send. I am more sorry than you that it is not larger.
You of course knew me as one of the '
students at Cam-
bridge. My father was very poor,
so as to afford me no aid at
all, and I Avorked through, partly by scholarships, partly by the
aid of friends (making a debt of some hundreds which I am
in honor bound to pay), and partly by my own exertions. That
accounts for my not having subscribed to the Class Fund, which
caused me more sorrow than you may imagine, for I fear that
that was ascribed to meanness which was caused by poverty.
Still I hoped some time to make up for what I was unable to do
then. I bad determined to push on through my chosen profes-
sion ; and, after having a situation as tutor in New York till
November, I went to Boston to enter the Medical School, and
the same day was taken down with pleurisy Of course
this long illness has been expensive, with nearly one hundred
visits from a doctor three miles away, and wme, etc. If I were
sure of recovery in three months more, I should like sending
more, but imder the circumstances it would be just neither to
my father nor to myself. I am sorry to have troubled you with
so long a letter, but I was glad of an opportunity of placing
myself in a true light, so as not to be considered mean, while all
the rest were so generous." This letter was written 28 June,
1866. This fear that we his classmates w^ould misunderstand
him seemed to haunt him, and on his death-bed he requested
his mother to write to your Secretary again. She says, 12
January, 1867 : —
" I write at the request of my son, to tell you that he has
been sick since a year ago last November, and is fast failing.
He can live only a short time to all human appearance.
" When he graduated, and all his classmates were giving for
the Class Fund and Class Cup, he could not give as he wished,
for he had nothing to give, and it was only by the kindness of
friends that he was able to dress himself for Class Day. He
felt it very keenly, knowing that it appeared like meanness ; but
he lived in hopes some time to be able to give and redeem his
character and he wishes ;
you to know how sorry he feels that it
can never be, for God has ordered otherwise. When that God
in whom he trusts takes him to himself, I will write aofain to
Ten days afterwards she wrote :
" Homer desired me to noti-
fy you as soon as he left us, which he did this morning, at three
o'clock, with the full assurance of a blessed immortality."
No words can be a better eulogy than these, showing his sensitiveness
and peculiar delicacy,
as admirable as it was unfortu-
nate and unfounded.
At the Class meeting which has been mentioned, a letter was
received from Dr. Bowditch, who had always taken a kind in-
terest in Smith. It is now given for the benefit of all who have
not heard it —
" I see by the evening papers,
that your Class intends to pay
a tribute of respect
to the memory of G. Homer Smith. I am
sure you will not deem it indecorous on my part, if I join
a few facts con-
so far as I can do so, by relating
nected with his brief but excellent career
On the ad-
vice of his teacher in the English High School,
that Homer should enter the Boston Latin School. Here he
it was decided
spent two years of very hard work, but he fitted himself so well
durincr that tinie that, I believe, he entered your Class without
" And here came the first of his trials. Proud and sensitive
at the thought of the reception of favors, especially from those
richer than himself, he determined at first to five in the simplest
style, and to his
food at his own room. This course I
saw would be fatal to him, I opposed it, and he yielded unwill-
ino-ly, but he made, I fear, at last, very imperfect arrangements
with his landlady, and at a very cheap rate.
" His second trial was the fact that he could not compete
with the trained workers who had spent from three to four times
as manv years in preparation as he had, and his distress was
greater when he came out in his first year only the twenty-first
in rank. He thought that we — his many finends and I —
should think him unworthy, whereas we saw all his difficulties,
and admired the success he had achieved.
" His third and o-reatest trial was the loss of a Bowditch
scholarship in his last year He felt, as I have stated, de-
graded before those friends who had given him a helping hand
during his course through College.
I argued in vain against
" Durincr a part
of his career he expressed a certain degree of
bitterness in regard
to rich people, which demanded our rebuke.
He could not imagine that any such could bestow a favor, except
for the purpose
the recipient of his bounty. But
this bitterness gradually wore away, and I saw but little of it
during the latter half of his College life. I fear, however, that
this dependence and consequent unwillingness to spend for anythino-
but the bare necessities of life may have prevented him
from throwincr himself as heartily as others do into the festivals
of the College.
I may be mistaken, but when I remember that
I had to argue with him as to the propriety of joining heartily
in Class Day, Class supper, and Commencement Day exercises
and pleasures, I feel persuaded that I am correct.
" After graduation he spent four most happy months in New
York, in the bosom of a delightful family, full of intelligence
and kindness. He revelled in books, and devoted himself body
and soul to the acquirement of the German and French languages.
His kind friends procured for him a pass to the German
theatre, and he went several times a week, six miles (three each
way), to attend this school.
" His pupil entered Columbia College, and he returned to
die by slow and terrible disease (consumption). For two years
he fought against it, but it was gradually and surely taking his
life away. But not until a few weeks before his death did
he have much doubt of ultimate recovery. On one occasion
when visiting my study, he asked the plain question, ' Am I
to live or to die ? '
1 replied, '
that no one but the Al-
miglity could certainly know what would be the result ; but
that it was evident during the long; time he had been ill he had
not improved, and that, under the circumstances, he ought to
consider as a man and a Christian the possibility of death.' He
said not a word, but received my remarks calmly ; but, as he
told a friend, the idea of dying had never risen fully before him
until that moment, and that for three days he was rebellious and
unwilling to accept of his fate ;
and then came oVer him a heav-
enly peace, which he had never known before, and he accepted
every pain he bore as the messengers sent to him by God for
his benefit. He became gentle and loving ;
A peace that passeth all understanding
all bitterness seemed
seemed to and really
did possess him. Thankful for the smallest
kindness, and full of faith in the Divine goodness, he seenned to
shed a peace on all that saw him, so that I verily believe his last
few weeks of life were of more real avail upon all connected
with him than any^f his previous years. From far and near,
friends sent messages and gifts of loving thoughtfulness ; so that,
while cheering his mind, they prevented extra pains to his poor,
wearied, worn-out body. With few exceptions (momentary) he
retained his entire consciousness to the last two hours, serenely-
hopeful. He made every arrangement for his simple funeral,
requesting that in every way it should be the least expensive
possible, in order that some of his hard-earned savings might be
left to his parents.
" I have written these few pages to you, in the hope that his
classmates may not deem them inopportune, when they are about
to give expression to their own feelings on the occasion of his early
death. You may have wiser and brighter persons among your
number, none better than he was, none more conscientious, none
more faithful in the performance of every duty ; and most
happy will it be for each one of you, if your last hours may be
At a meeting of the Class, held at the Parker House, Boston,
29 January, 1867, it M^as resolved : —
" That, while we recognize in this bereavement the hand of
Him who doeth all things well, we would express our deepest
sorrow at the loss of one who, by the worth of his character and
the warmth of his heart, endeared himself to all who were fa-
vored with his acquaintance.
" That we bear testimony to his brilHant talents, joined with
unremitting perseverance, even in the face of difficulties, and
above all to that Christian trust which Avas his support during
his long and painful illness.
" That we tender our heartfelt sympathy to the afflicted fam-
of the deceased."
