At an adjourned meeting of the Board of Trustees of Hobart College, held at the college library on Thursday, the 15th, the following minute on the death of Professor Nash was ordered spread upon the record:
“Since the last semi-annual meeting of this board there has occurred the death of Francis Philip Nash, professor Emeritus of the Latin Language and Literature. Possibly the word ‘emeritus’ after his name in our catalogue is a sufficient testimonial,–retired after long years of honorable service and his name retained on the rolls.’
“A beautiful appreciation of Professor Nash appears in the Hobart Herald of today, written by his brilliant co-worker of forty years, a co-worker in maintaining the standard and ideals of the college, and his true companion for almost a life time in the field of literature, of the languages and of art.
