LOSS OF BURTON I
FELT BY NATIN
(Continued From Page One.)
heart had ceased to beat, and that
stalwart form, so wrecked and emaci-
ated by the harrowing illness, lay
still at last, peaceful in its release
trom pain.
Unclermined In health by his never-
ending efforts in behalf of the Univer-
sity to which he so unqualifiedly dei-
cted his life, Dr. Burton was in no
condition to withstand the repeated
attacks of disease. Stricken with a
similar attack In March, 1921, he re-
mained away from ig duties only
long enough to gain sufficient strength
to move about. Never resting, filling
even his summers with work for the
University, the great man wore down
his splendid physical stamina, weaken-
ing his power of resistance and utterly
disregarding his personal safety in
his efforts for the best good of the
University.
The nervous breakdown which of-'
flited him in the spring of 1924 did
more to wear down President Burton's.
resistance. Fighting back, leaving his
bed when in no condition to move in'
order to attend some University func-
tion, Dr. Burton recovered, only to
plunge at once into the detailed work
of his annual report during the time
set aside for his vacation. Returning
to Ann Arbor in the fall, he was in
poor condition to face the ordeal which
proved to be before him.
Facts concerning the President's ill-
ness were withheld during the earlier
stages, as it was expected that he:
would recover readily. It was not
until November 3, 1924, that his con-
dition took a really serious turn,
steady improvement having been noted
from October 22, the beginning of hi
illness, to that time. Glandular abs-j
oesses in the throat at that time made
operations necessary. A slight gainI
followed this until Christmas vaca-
tion when he was stricken with In-
fluenza despite all efforts to protect
him from the then prevailing epidemic'
of that disease. Two weeks ago a
third relapse impeded 'his recovery
again, and on Therday, February !
12 came the news of the fourth set-
back which has proved fatal.
Those in touch with Mrs. Burton
describe her as "buesteel"--strong
and brave in the face of the great
sorrow which has become her lot. Inp
reply to a message from the Dean's
meeting held this morning she thankedo
them for their sympathy so sincerelyg
extended, and stated that it was her f
wish, knowing that Dr. Burton wouldn
have had it so, that University activi-v
ties be continued, in answer to theirn
proposal that they be halted.
That Mrs. George R. Stewart, Jr.,d
nee Theodosia Burton, will reach Ann h
Arbor before Saturday Is extremely t
doubtful, as she has been confined to
her home in Berkeley, California, forb
some time by illness, and her doctorsv
consider her in no condition to make
the trip. Rev. Charles E. Burton, i
brother of Dr. Burton is expected to 1
arrive soon. He was in the city ovels
the week end, and returned to New 1
York in response to an urgent calln
on Monday. t

The loss 'which his death inflicts
upon the University, the..State, and
even the nation is immeasurable. Un-
Varyingly kind in disposition; he was
a man of admirable character and
poise. His immediate associates in
the administration of the Vniversity
characterized him as a man with' a
large portion of common sense coupled
with strength of character, a pleasing
personality and the ability to direct
affairs of grave importance with a
steady and tactful hand. - i
His death at this time has deprived
him of seeing the results of his labors
on behalf of the University. He was

the history of educationi whouhave
been in such perfect sympathy and
accord with the student mind as was.j
President .Burton.
President Burton is survived by Mrs
Burton, his brother, Rev. Charles F.
Burton and his children, Jane and
Paul and Mrs. George R. Stewartj
Jr. A committee of three consisting
of Dr. Frank Robbins, President emn-
eritus Hutchins and Shirley Smith.
