He was a ripe scholar and had improved every opportunity to broaden his mind both by deep study and frequent visits to the treasures of the old world. He was made an LL.D. by Hobart College. He was a gentleman of the old school and to know him_was to entertain the feelings of the utmost respect for him. Since 1883 he had resided the greater part of the time in Ann Arbor. In recent years he had been afflicted with paralysis which prevented him from talking at length, but his mind was always bright and clear and to the last he was a great reader.
