A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF
The class of 'B4, like the class of 'B3, has
a history that has never .before been written.
Looking back through a period of nearly eight
years, to the fall session of 1880, we recall with
pleasure the ten "fresh" faces, beginning the rec
ord of the class of 'B4, only twio of whom, as
members. of the class of 'B4, were destined to
face the realities of the much-longed-for yet
dreaded graduation day. The names of these
ten were : James W. Alexander, Hezekiah No
ble Campbell, Philip D. Foster, Dugald C. Jack
,Andrew Parker, Emma Blanche Patterson,
William M. Potter, Joseph W. Reeves, Robert
F. Whitener and Garry H. \Vood. Miss Patter
son was welcomed from the class of 'B3.
By the close of the Freshman year, Messrs.
Campbell, Foster, Parker, Potter and Wood had
dropped out of the class. At the 'beginning of
the Sophomore year in 1881, four new members
were enrolled, viz Robert M. Brown, John F.
Healy, Helen Jackson and Milton W. Lowry.
These persons aided greatly in making the
Sophomore year the liveliest and most enjoyable
of our four years' stay at Pennsylvania State Col
lege, The cimax and crowning event of the
entire course was reached in the ''Sophomore
banquet," the memory of which overflows with
the joy, mirth and happiness of that blissful even
ing. All who were present will also remember
how, when the time for the toasts came after a
sumptuous feast,we felt almost "too full for utter
ance.". The class now numbered nine, though
there were of course just double that number
present at the banquet.
At the close of the Sophomore year Messrs.
Brown and Whitmer dropped out of the class,
