Archivist’s Note: Nephew of John A. Graham; second cousin of Malcolm Graham. After his death, a series of memorial addresses delivered at the clubhouse by Paul L. Ford, Richard H. Stoddard, Edmund C. Stedman, and James M. Varnum was published as “James Lorimer Graham, Jr., January 17, 1894.”
And the open-hearted, open-handed Graham! How many among the children of song and the votaries of art were touched with passionate regret, to learn that that flowing source was still, of help to the striving, praise to the deserving—that the welcoming house in the beautiful city is dark, and the kindly friend, absent so long, shall be seen among us no more!
