HarrimanBATH TO CELEBRATE Talented Member of Bowdoin College Faculty Victim of Intestinal Trouble. PROFESSOR LESLIE A. LEE. Word was received in this city Wednesday of the death at the Maine General Hospital iii Portland of Professor Leslie A. Lee. The professor was taken suddenly ill last Saturday 1 at his home in Brunswick with an intestinal obstruction. On Sunday night he was removed to the hospital in Portland and early Tuesday morning an operation was performed by I Dr. Thompson. The intestines were found to be in a very serious condition, and little hopes were entertained for his recovery from the start. 1 The professor loaves a wife and two daughters, Miss Sylvia Lee a teacher1 at Berkeley, California, and Miss j Elizabeth Lee a student at Bradford College, Cambridge. Mass. It will he remembered that last June the professor s only son. Richard K. Lee, was drowned in Casco Bay near Small Point. He was a promising student at Bowdoin and his death was a great blow to the professor and no doubt his untimely death had a serious result upon Prof. Leo’s health. The professor breathed his last at 8:45 o'clock Wednesday. Few men in this part of Maine are better known or better respected. Not only was he one of the most popular professors ever in a Maine college, but be was one of the most public spirited citizens in the whole state of Maine. As soon as word of his death was received in Brunswick, the chapel bell was tolled, the Hag on Memorial Hall was placed at half mast and as a further mark of respect recitations in tho College were suspended for the remainder of the day. With him at the end were his wife, Ii is sister, Mrs. Edmund C. Whitman of Cambridge, Mass., and his brother, Prof. Frederick S. Lee of Columbia University, New York City. Mrs. Hosea M. Knowlton of New Bedford, Mass., widow of former Attorney General Hosea M. Knowlton, of Massachusetts, and sister of Mrs. Lee, arrived in Brunswick Wednesday. Prof. Lee is survived by ills wife and two daughters, Miss Sylvia, a professor iu the Berkley School in California, and Miss Elizabeth, a student in Radcliffe. Prof. Lee was born at Woodstock, Vt., Sept. 2 4, I ST. 2. His father was John Stebbins Lee, lh lh, LL. IL, who was tho first president of St. Lawrence University at Canton, N. Y., and connected with that institution for 4 3 years. Prof. Lee graduated from St. Lawrence University in 1872, and took a post graduate course at Harvard in ISSI. He taught at Goddard Academy in 1873 and at Dean Academy in IS7 3-76. He was a member of the American Society of Naturalists, the American Morphological society, and tho Beta Theta Pi and Phi Beta Kappa fraternities. When Prof. Lee came to Bowdoin in 1876 he was instructor in natural history. Later he became professor of geology and biology. For several years he has also served as Instructor in geology and evolution in the Bangor Theological Seminary. During the 32 years while Prof. Lee was connected with Bowdoin College he ti id considerable original work in natural history, deep sea investigations and other scientific pursuits, the result of which has been of great value to the government, ami added to the glory of old Bowdoin. He raised the money among the alumni and organized in 1891 an expedition to Labrador which he personally conducted. A large collection of natural history and archeological specimens was brought back. The most important discovery w is the site of an old Esquimaux village in which were found bone carvings and other strange relics. The signs of the village had been obliterated and there were no traditions of any settlement, hut Prof. Lee, who had had experience in locating such places, found a clue and began to dig. The party got a good idea of how the ancient Esquimaux lived, and obtained a collection of articles such as has never before or since been brought to-got her. \ previous work by Prof. Lee was in behalf of the government, when he was connected with the U. S. Fish Commission, from ISS 1-1SSS. Ho made a voyage from Washington. I). C., to San Francisco in the steamer Albatross having charge of a party engaged in scientific investigations. The purpose of the voyage was to get the Albatross around Cape Horn to the Pacific coast so that it might go to Alaska toinvestigatefishing. There being ample time they were instructed to delay the trip and make collections for the Smithsonian Institute. They landed at Patagonia. Terra del Fuego, and Investigated the Straits of Magellan, finding much of Interest there. During Ills connection with the U. S. Fish Commissioners Prof. Lee spent eight summers in deep sea investigations, making his headquarters at Wood s Holl, and going out from thoro to the Gulf Stream. The sped mens obtained were sent to the Smithsonian institute. They succeeded in bringing up fish from the bottom of the ocean, 3919 fathoms, or about 3% miles below the surface. This investigation was of special interest to Prof. Lee and it was for this line of work that he received his degree of rh. D. from St. Lawrence U niverslty. Prof. Leo was appointed chairman of tho State Topographic Survey commission in 1899. when tho Legislature authorized a topoghaphie survey of tho State, and since that time has given much time to the work, the federal government sharing tho expense and providing the surveyors. This commission also has the direction and control of the geological survey of the State, and In this department Prof. Lee was an Invaluable member of the Board. A notable purchase along the river front is that of ex-Mayor Hyde’s well known racing yacht Minnehaha, which he has recently sold to H. H. Bonnemort, who will uso her this season on the Kennebec. Public Meeting Next Tuesday To Discuss Plans for Another Big Celebration During August. Bath will have a celebration in August. This has been practically determined bv the demand which is being made for it by Bath merchants and others who realize what a great benefit the big celebration of last year. So strong is this demand that the Ter-Uentcnnial association has deemed bt through its president. George E. Thompson, to call a meeting of all parties interested at the common council room next Tuesday evening at 7:30 o’clock when there will no doubt be a large gathering present. The celebration last year was the most successful ever held in Maine and thoro is no question but what it brought into this city thousands of dollars which helped make business conditions ti Bath good for many months to follow. Of course the committees last year learned much by oxperiem and many of the expenses of that time tan be considerably cut today without in the least detracting from Hit' success of the affair. Already Chairman Wilbur C Oliver of last year's street fair committee is receiving queries iii regard to space in Bath ties >oar and he lias consented to serve the association for anoWi-or year in the same capacity lf desired. Mr. Oliver’s good work was so greatly appreciated that his consent to handle that end of it again this year is sufficient, guarantee that his department will show a profit this season. It is proposed to hold a fireman's muster oho day during the celebration and offer prizes which will draw the fire la.plies from all over New England. This will be one day’s feature which will prove one of tho greatest drawing cards Maine has ever had at any celebration. Of course there will be naval representation and may bo the scout cruiser Chester will be in tho fleet which will favor us with a visit and an effort will be made to have the Annap His cadets bere again this year. The Press committee which had much to clo with the success of last year's celebration is ready to take bold with a will and there seems to bo a desire on the part of our business houses to see the celebration pushed to an even greater success than was that of last year if possible. Already a number have signified their desire to add to tlioir subscription of last yoni* and a number of outside concerns have plans, which if the celebration idea is carried out as outlined, will bring cash into the coffers of tho association. At noon yesterday President George H. Thompson of the Tor-Centennial association issued this call for the public meeting next Tuesday night. At the urgent solicitation of many of our citizens a public meeting will be held at the Common Council room Tuesday evening, May 2 6, 190 8, at 7:30 o'clock for the purpose of discussing plans for a celebration and street fair in August. All i-itizens interested are invited to bo present. GEORGE E THOMPSON, resident Tor-Centennial Ass’n. HARRY C. WEBBER. Secretary. Bath. Maine. May 22, 190S. Pl LUI r IM) PUW. FIREMEN AT PLAY.
