church, marked by the dignified
simplicity of the Episcopal cere-
mony. Many friends, townspeople,
and University folk crowded the
church. Special sections were oc-

who included President Alexander
G. Ruthven, the Regents, Superin-

others representing the adminis-

The "Laudes atque Carmine" was

Former President Hutchins, who
had served the University in that
capacity from 1910 to his retire-

Michigan's fourth President, his
tenure of office was marked by the
growth of the faculties and physi-

sight and by his calm efforts to
free the administration of the Uni-
