that time it has been served by its own librarian. It has been endowed
by several gifts. The first of these was the William Edgar Marshall
Memorial Fund, provided on May 21, 1914, by Mr. W. F. Marshall,
an alumnus of the College of the class of 1883, and his wife, of

typhoid fever on April 29, 1912. This fund amounts to $1,250.
