She to reception of Seniors to Radcliffe." The writings show a very intelligent young man who is very much into bicycling and thoroughly in the Radcliffe college scene including the music club. Concerts, sports and riding our author includes bar music, complex mathematical formulae to enhance the narrative. He notes going to Payson Hill Reservoir, that his cousin addresses the Immanuel Club of Radcliffe, rehearsing the play La Bourre, a party at Miss Fleagles part of Lasalle seminary and much, much more. BIO NOTES: He earned three degrees from Harvard: A.B. 1899, A.M. 1900, and Ph.D. in Physics 1905. He was appointed to a one year fellowship in Physics in 1906. After that he was comptroller of Harvard 1906 - 1910, lecturer in Physics 1918, and organizer of the Memorial Hall Dining Association. Later he carried on his father's real estate interests. His wife Helen (Thomas) was the sister of Gertrude F. Thomas, writer and poet. The book is in awful shape, the cover falling apart but present but all pages present. Overall Poor.
