Century Memorial

What one of us will willingly forget the gentle genial soul of William B. Chambers? with thoughts of whom we may join those reverend forms so representative of our city’s religious life, Dr. William Wallace Atterbury and Dr. Thomas Samuel Hastings, for years a most personally beloved pastor, and then President of the Union Theological Seminary.
