To the President of the University:

Sir:-I have the honor to submit my seventh and last annual report as Dean of the University Faculty. The subject matter is arranged with reference to the work of the committees of which the Dean is ex-officio chairman, and with reference to such functions as have been especially assigned to him by the Faculty.

During the past year the University was called upon to mourn the death of Mark Vernon Slingerland, Assistant Professor of Economic Entomology in the College of Agriculture and a member of the University Faculty. The following resolutions of respect and condolence were spread upon the minutes of the Faculty and communicated to the family:

“On Wednesday, March 11, 1909, death removed from among us our respected friend and valued colleague, Mark Vernon Slingerland. His death is a serious loss to the world of natural science in which he was a conscientious and honored student, as well as to the Faculty of this University where his opinion and voice were respected, and a deep source of grief to a wide circle of friends in University and town.

He came to this community as a student in 1888, was graduated in 1892, and entered the instructing staff of this University in the same year.

His progress thereafter was rapid, but also substantial. As a student, his career was marked by earnestness, courage, and industry. As a teacher, he was direct and forceful. As an investigator, he was conscientious, unbiased, persevering, and accurate. In his special field of economic entomology his authority and leadership received unquestioned recognition. As a student of the life history and means of controlling insects which prey upon domestic animals and cultivated plants, his investigations embraced an exceptionally wide range. While the numerous monographs he prepared have been of incalculable benefit to those engaged in the field of plant and animal production, they remain also as enduring monuments to a life which, though lamentably short, yet overflowed with a special type of beneficent usefulness. His opinion, advice, and judgment were valued alike by student and colleague. Those who knew him as a friend were privileged. They appreciated him as a man of character wedded to truth, unswerving in conviction, and consistent in maintaining his ideals. Though diffident in expressing opinions, his mind was of the eminently practical kind, which, discarding unimportant details, concentrates on the immediately essential. His memory is cherished as a man whose life, though short, stands as a notable example of one who gave his years unselfishly and devotedly to the discovery of useful truths in the realm of natural history in their relation to the economy of plant and animal life. Measured by years, his life was short; measured by achievement, he lived long. As a scientist, we honor his memory; as a man and a colleague, we mourn his loss.

John CRAIG, Committee.
W. W. Rowlee."

On October 16–17, Haverford College celebrated the 75th anniversary of its foundation, and the following address of congratulation was adopted by the Faculty and conveyed to Haverford College by President Schurman:

Cornell University congratulates Haverford College on the completion of seventy-five years of exalted service in the World of Letters and Science. During these five and seventy years Haverford has always fostered a lofty idealism in the training of the youth of the Republic, and her rigorous, steadfast devotion to the finest type of educational practice, the achievements of her Faculty in the Ancient Classics, Mathematics, and English Literature have won her the applause and gratitude of her sister institutions of learning.

Cornell University sends this message of greeting and felicitation by the hands of its President, Jacob Gould Schurman, and joins to its greeting the devout wish that Haverford College may long continue to prosper and to exert its beneficent influence on future generations.

During the year invitations were received from the University of Leipzig and the University of Geneva asking Cornell University to be represented by a delegate at the celebration of the gooth and 350th anniversaries, respectively, of the creation of those institutions. The Faculty voted to request the President to represent the University on these occasions, or in event of his inability to serve, to appoint an alternate. It was further voted that a Committee of three be named by the President to draft addresses in reply to the foregoing invitations.

The President was also requested to represent the Faculty as its delegate at the ceremonies of the Darwin Centenary to be held at the University of Cambridge, England, in June.

The following addresses were prepared in response to the invitations mentioned above: To the Rector and Senate of the University oj Leipzig:

The Trustees and Faculty of Cornell University, through their President, Jacob Gould Schurman, send greetings:

We congratulate the great Saxon University on the noble history of her five hundred years, and rejoice in her grand achievements for the advance of human culture. We gratefully recognize our debt to German scholarship, and to Leipzig as a leader in the quest of truth. The ideals realized by Leipzig in education, sci

ce, and philosophy have elevated our own academic life, and the sound training which many of our professors have received from her distinguished scholars has exerted a vital influence upon the spirit and method of scientific investigation in this University and in this country.






To the University of Cambridge, celebrating the centenary of her illustrious son, Charles Darwin, creator of modern biological science, Cornell University, by her President, Jacob Gould Schurman, sends greetings. With you we rejoice in doing honor to the master interpreter of nature's laws, the Copernicus of the organic world, whose genius was disciplined in your ancient halls. May Cambridge long occupv her high historic place as the kindly nu of creative minds!
