LEFT A GREAT WORK Recognised' Nationally as a Constructive Leader in I Education. Lorenzo Dow Harvey, famous as president of The Stout Instiute from the i time of its Inception and acknowledged nationally as ,a great leader in educational progress, died at 6:45 p. m. Thursday at his home in thtfc city. Angina pectoris is given as the cause of death. Dr. Harvey was taken seriously ill the night before and outside medical aid was summoned to assist local doctors in Ills care. The attacks recurred with increasing frequency and severity, however, until, seated in his chair bravely awaiting the inevitable end, he breathed his last. For more than a year it was known to the public that Dr. Harvey's health was failing. Itut it was known, too, that the indomitable power which had enabled him to do great things during a long life of service was serving him In good stead. They knew that he was standing by his tasks and doing his work as only he could do it and while for some time his friends had been fearful of-the worst they yet were hopeful for the best. f News Was Crushing It was therefore crushing news that went forth from the, home at Fourth avenue and Droadway- at supper time Thursday. Citizens refused to believe It. They could not believe It. Groups 'formed -upon tho corners, upon each lip a whispered query and in each heart a dread as to the answer, a dread half suppressed by a hope that would not Hut the truth prevailed, as it always must, and the city once more was called upon to grieve, even as it was short weeks ago in - the passing of another of its eminent men, the late Garien L. Bowman, one of Dr. Harvey's closest friends. Mow to Institute In the circles of the Institute the hour was one of especial trial. The bright promise of commencement time faded into, the darkucss.;of mourning, -The transition 'was sudden, as though a cloud had quickly come from" the far horizon to 'shut out the sun. All the joys of graduation -vanished and instead of the exercise such'as-for years had ended with Dr. Harvey's handing' to the students 'the ' much' prized parchments which f they had won as his pupils tTtre was on Friday; nlghf'a cerc,monys of another kind.?v Instead of the kind words. Of en eou.fri dement and th"lnsplrlng cheer which from the days of the fust, class the great head of the Institute had given to the graduates there were heard eulogies of the president who had gone. Memorial services supplanted commencement. Mdiicators In Sorrow , Menomonie and the Stout Institute have not been, alone in their sorrow. If the city has lost its foremost citizen the cause of '-education has lost one of its main supports. In "Wisconsin, in the Northwest, Indeed throughout tho nation his removal Is keenly felt. Typical of the general feeling among those engaged in school work are many messages of condolence which have been received by Mrs. Harvey expressing riot Drily sympathy 'in her great bereavement but alsn a sense of the personal loss sustained by educational leaders and of "the b'lTjViraPhliscbmd'to their (Cbntlnucd on page tour) "i "i i Lorenzo Dow Harvey Bom Nov. 2rv18-IS Rev.

A "class of sixteen students, eight in the four-year course, four In. the two-year course and four in the short course, .received diplomas j at the commencement exercises of the Dunn County School of Agriculture and Domestic Economy at the Memorial Thursday bight, following a strong address by the Rev. William E. Dudley, pastor of 'the Park Avenue Congregational church, Minneapolis.; ! ': ;' The program opened with two selections by the Bchool orchestra, led by County Supt. E. L. Edes, which were well received. Prayer was delivered by Rev. 11. J. Diekvoss. A selection by the men's quartet of. the Stout Institute followed. Principal D. P. Hughes presented the Rev. Mr. Dudley, who declared himself mightily interested in the proposition when young people are gathered in the interests of education and culture The principal had just told of his difficulties in procuring a speaker, when one plan after another hnd gone awry. Had ItCiulicd Important Point' Mr. Dudley commended the class of the evening and wished the members to realize they had reached an important point, in their career, a wonderful opportunity being 'now opened before them. They were that much nearer the realization of their purpose in life. His talk, he said, would, be primarily for young men and women. j He knew of. nothing except religion," he said that was more important than education. He spoke of the increased , population . of the World, especially in countries across the. sea, such as Japan. They feel the necessity of pushing out into new lands. In our own growing cities there is not much elbow room. These changing conditions have begotten, new problems and created new viewpoints ih life.

'A - :- i.--.t t - ' ' blwI-June 1, 1!)22 The principal address at the memorial services held in the Stout Auditorium Friday night In honor of the late Lorenzo D, Harvey was delivered by George P- Hambrecht, director of the State Board of Industrial Education and secretary of the Board of Trustees of The Stout Institute. His estimate of the character and work of Dr. Harvey, eloquently expressed, made' a deep Impression: The address was substanj-tially as follows: ' "For the first time In fifty years the chair of our lamented andbeloved educator and friend, Lorenzo Dow Harvey, is vacant on the occa-ion of the commencement exercises of an institution, with which he was connected an occasion that, brought joy and pleasure -to his heart ;but while his chair is vacant, his spirit permeates this gathering, and on this occasion, which has been changed from a festal celebration into an oc' casion of mourning,s we are impressed most deeply with the frailty1 of human life. At best our lives are but the span-of a few years, and the measure of Our success , is not the number of years 1 of service, but rather the quality of work done )by each individual. "It has been said that the greatest monument that can beNerected to any man is the silent grief iqf one lefthe-hind at the grave of a departed one, and who says, wateringhe sod with his tears, 'Here lies the best friend I ever had. Measured in these aterms none in Wisconsin's history has left greater or more, numerous monuments than Lorenzo Dow Harvey, because he has befriended not only one, but multitudes. The range of his CO-WORKERS IN GREAT TRIBUTE TO DR. HARVEY IMPRESSIVE MEMORIAL 45ERV-ICES TAKE PLACE OF STOUT COMMENCEMENT. Impressive were the - memorial exercises in honor of the late Dr. Lorenzo Dow Harvey, which ! were held in the Stout Auditorium Friday night, but little more thanltwenty-four hours after the great , educator had, passed; away. It was to have been commencement night, when the . members of the graduating clasj wgratoreceiye thcif 'degrees and diplomas. There seemed something providential in the fact that the president of the institute lived out the school year and that his passing was practically coincident with the completion of the work of his last class. Commencement is Omitted There remained but the ceremony attendant Upon the conferring af the degrees and diplomas., This was omitted as the spirit of the occasion was not such; that the original program could be carried out and it seemed fitting that the class and the public should at that hour hear words spoken in appreciation : of - the life and labors of the departed president. At the left end. of the stage was the president's vacant chair bearing large bouquet. Audience Fills Hall ' At 8 o'clock a large audience filled those portions of- the auditorium not reserved for the faculty and class of '22.

Common Feeling of Sorrow "Our feeling of sorrow upon this occasion cannot be expressed in empty words. It is a feeling that permeates us all, a common feeling, emphasizing in the most acute way the great loss we have suffered, and yet, if his sudden departure has brought us face-to face with Ithe seriousness of . our life problems land the importance of devoting otu best talents to the upbuilding of better ideals,: that we .may here and now resolve from henceforth to so live? our . lives that the world will be a ; better place because of our having! lived here, then Hhe sudden departure of ; our friend and co-worker at this time will not have been in vain.

Value to Friends , "It was with a sense of satisfaction that our departed friend knew during his lifetime that his work was appreciated by the . many students and friends with whom he came in contact. ' Numerous illustrations could be given to amply certify to this, and It must be a source of satisfaction to those who made known to him their feelings in this regard.! One Illustration I have fn mind is the dedication Of the 1910 Stout Annual. ; The students of that class dedicated the Annual to Doctor Harvey in these words: " 'To President Harvey, whom ; we know, to be our friend; because he! said to us on his sixtieth birthday, that - he would never be j too old to sympathize with his ; student8.'a "It is given to me on this occasion to chronicle briefly a few , of the important events in ; tho life , of pur departed friend, and briefly I can say that he was a living example, of the practical , application of that verse, in scripture which reads: "'Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been : faithful over a few. things, s I will make thee ruler over many ', - things.' -' - ' .
