Edward North: A Memorial Address
Download Full Text
Edward North (1820-1903) graduated from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York in 1841 and taught Latin and Greek there from 1843 to 1901. In Herrick Johnson: An Appreciative Memoir (New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1914), Charles Edward Robinson writes that Johnson was chosen to deliver North’s memorial address on the basis of the “peculiarly warm and devoted friendship” that developed between the two men at Hamilton, when Johnson was a student and North a member of the faculty. According to M. Woolsey Stryker, Hamilton’s president at the time, Johnson did so “in most complete and welcome style” (pp. 24, 25). The address was delivered outside Appalachia; it is included in the Library to help paint a complete picture of Johnson’s oratory.
