of Bachelor of Arts in 1890, and for the year 1890-91 a graduate
student in Johns Hopkins University, entered his work in September,

succeeded by Robert W. Haywood, a graduate of the College in 1893
with the Bachelor of Arts degree, and the Master of Arts degree in
1894; he was Instructor for the year 1894-95 and Assistant Professor
