Century Memorial

Richard Christian Fellows, whose name leads the mortuary list this year, had been a member of The Century for forty years, having been elected in 1862, but of late had rarely visited the club. He was the senior member of the law firm of Fellows, Hoyt & Schell; a director for many years of the Butchers’ and Drovers’ Bank; and was interested in the Historical Society and the Academy of Design, with both of which he was connected.
