The Club has lost by death during the year the unusually small number of five members. These are: Edwin D. Morgan, Gustav Schiff, John A. Graham, John H. Willard and Albert F. Bellows.
The memory of those among them whose frequent presence entitles them to be regarded and mourned almost as household friends, has been already honored by the Century in appropriate resolutions.
