Charles Tracy Barney was born in Cleveland, graduated at Williams, and made his home here in order to engage in banking. He was fifty-seven years of age, and for nineteen of these years his name was on our roll of membership. Fearless and restless, he made a name in the world of finance and acquired a great fortune. In art, music, letters, and the drama he displayed a critical interest and planned great things for their advancement, spending freely and inducing liberality in others. To his support the Zoölogical Garden owes much of its success, and he inaugurated a movement which may give to this city a worthy home of the drama. His intimate friends and nearer associates found him a high-minded man, and the community admitted his power and his civic loyalty.
