Letter from Edmund C. Stedman [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Letter from Edmund C. Stedman W. A. Bradley, '99, of the Committee on Arrangements for the dinner recently tendered to Professor Woodberry, has kindly sent us the following letter from Mr. Edmund Clarence Stedman, which he received too late to include in the memorial pamphlet distributed at the dinner: LAWRENCE PARK, BRONXVILLE, NEW YORK, Dec. 11, 1900. MR. WILLIAM A. BRADLEY, (of the Committee). DEAR SIR : The delay in my reply to your invitation to be present at the dinner to Mr. Woodberry by his students, has been due to the fact that until to-day I could not tell the date upon which I leave for a brief sea voyage that I have been ordered to undertake. As it is, I am to sail very early on Saturday morning, and shall not be able to go out on Friday evening. In fact, I have not yet quite recovered from a tedious illness, and am still feeling the effort which I made to speak at a reception last week. Nothing would be more delightful than to witness your demonstration of the affectio...
Valuable Collection for the Library [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Valuable Collection for the Library It has recently been announced that the Holland Society has decided to deposit its library at 'the Universicy. The books and pamphlets which 'it contains are mostly in Dutch; many of them are old and valuable. The library was formed around a nucleus of two hundred and fifty-eight volumes which was presented to the society in 1890 by Robert B. Roosevelt, who was then president of the society. This original collection was composed of the works of Grotius and books relating to him. It is a very complete collection and wholly unique, in America at least. The great Dutchman who was famous as a theologian, statesman and poet as well as a jurist, wrote on a great variety of subjects. Besides his treatise on international law, which was the chief authority in that field for a century, he wrote works, on other branches of law, arguments on the religious controversies of his. time, and a number of poems in Latin and Dutch. This original collection has been ...
Christmas Trip of " Prof. Whimsical" [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Christmas Trip of " Prof. Whimsical" The " Soph Show " gave two out-of-town performances during vacation—one at Montclair on the 27th, and one at Lakewood on the 28th. The cast was the same as in the home performances and the men showed the benefit of their experience. The performance on the 27th was given in the Montclair Club. The hall was crowded and the play was very well received. A reception was given to the cast in the afternoon and after the performance there was a dance at the club. On Thursday the company went to Lakewood, where they stayed at the Laurel House. The last performance of " Professor Whimsical " was given in the ball room in the evening. In spite of the disadvantages of the temporary stage, the performance was probably the best of the series. The audience was as large as the ballroom could accommodate, and applauded heartily, especially in the latter part of the play. The dance by Snowdrop (Curry) and Sukey (Haas) was especially well received. The manager's re...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
SPECTATOR wishes its friends— The Columbia Literary Monthly, Morningside, The Columbia Lazv Review—a happy and prosperous new year. The result of the chess tournament recently concluded is most gratifying to all Columbia men. In the first place Harvard's long series of victories has been broken —we have come so near doing so before, often losing by half a game, that it is really encouraging to find that we have won. And then, the victory justifies the policy, inaugurated by Captain Sewall, of playing preliminary matches with important local chess clubs and thus gaining valuable experience. Moreover, the teams this year consisted of four men from each college instead of two as formerly, so that they were decidedly more representative of their colleges. If it were possible to have more men on the team we would gladly welcome such a change, for this year our material has been so abundant and interest in the royal old game so widespread that it would be a good thing, as far as we are co...

Columbia Oval [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Columbia Oval Now that Manhattan Field is no longer under the control of Columbia a statement on the condition of Columbia Oval seems to be timely. In the report of the Director of the Gymnasium to the President of the University on Columbia Oval, it is stated that the buildings have been put in good condition, glass put in where necessary, doors repaired and locks put on them, and the dressing rooms underneath the grandstand covered and made perfectly dry. The fence was not repaired because it was expected that new roads would be cut through every week, and the fence would have to be run on new lines. However, the Director lias not yet spent an appropriation that was made for a fence, and therefore can repair it when the roads are cut through. The Director also repaired the roof, over the grandstand so that it is perfectly tight. Several schools in the city used the field for their spring training, and the revenue from these sources was $495. An increased rental will be charged nex...
Astronomical Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Astronomical Notes Prof. J. K. Rees, head of the department of astronomy, reports that he has completed the arrangements with Dr. Donner, of FLelsingfors, Finland, whereby a new form of instrument has been mounted at Helsingfors for special photographic researches. The constructional expenses have been met by the contributions of the Royal Observatory at Helsingfors and by the donations of the late Miss •Catherine W. Bruce, made shortly before her death. The instrument is fixedly mounted parallel to the axis of the earth and therefore points to the north polar regions; with it photographs covering two degrees on a side will be taken. The telescope will be fixed, and, therefore, as the earth revolves, the stars will make " trails " on the plate. The center of " trail " arcs will be the north-pole point of the heavens; from a discussion of the various photographs, Prof. Jacoby expects to obtain valuable data for determining the " constants " of precession, aberration and mutation.
Varsity Show Rehearsal [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 January 1901
Varsity Show Rehearsal A rehearsal of the cast and chorus of the Varsity Show was held last night at the rooms of the Musical Society in South Hall. The rehearsal went off as smoothly as could be expected of a first trial. The next rehearsal will be to-morrow evening in South Hall. From now until February 18, the date that has been decided upon for the first performance, Coach Jenkins intends to keep the candidates actively at work and a finished production may be expected. After the New Yo)rk performances the Show will visit Montclair, and perhaps if Manager Armstead can ma k e satisfactory arrangements "Princess Proud" may visit Brooklyn for an evening. The comedy in the show is up to the usual standard of Columbia shows. "Jack" Wright's burly form will appear before the footlights as General Coxev, leader of the forces of the Kingdom of Nowhere. Bruce, who stood by Wright on the football field, will be by his side in the show. He is to be one of the General's guards.
