  • "His abilities and high character stood out, as they did in private life. His breadth of view and sympathies were pronounced... Good will, kindliness, unselfishness, were traits that made him lovable to all who had contact with him. The gentleness of a strong man radiated inspiration and his going is a great loss to his friends as well as to his State." - Senate President pro Tem Arthur H. Breed Sr. (in the 1924 Blue Book)
