He graduated from Harvard College in 1875, A.M., 1882; served as tutor, then as professor of English, and as dean from 1891-1925.

For the celebration of the 300th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, December 21, 1920, he wrote a poem which is introduced by a prayer in three stanzas, 11.10.11.10., offered by "The Pilgrim," beginning "God of our fathers, who hast safely brought us." It was included in the program celebrating the 300th anniversary of the "Cambridge Platform" on October 27, 1948.… Go to person page >
