Here and There at Tufts

Doane, Lewis


The Class of 1870


The class of 1870 only graduated nine men in its classical course -just enough for a baseball team - and was headed, alphabetically, by Adams and footed by Warren. It is a striking fact that these two men, sitting at opposite ends of the same class, should be its only scholars, and that the last should be first, and the first second in scholarship. Their early promise has been made good. Adams has long been a leading minister in the Universalist denomination and has gracefully and honorably borne the title of D.D. Warren took excellent rank in every college study, but most loved Greek and Latin. After teaching a few years with marked success, he took a post graduate course at Yale, and then spent four years at English and German Universities in the study of Greek, Latin, and comparative philology. Upon his return from Europe, he went as instructor in Latin to John Hopkins; later, became full professor, and there remained until called to Harvard as Pope professor of Latin. Just as these lines are being written, comes word of his sudden death. He has fought the good fight; he has done much to make the world in which he lived, wiser and better, and died universally respected by all men who knew him. Every man of 1870 Tufts mourns for him, but every man gives thanks that Warren did so much to honor himself, his class, and his college.
