Mr. Harwood R. Pool, a life member of the Ohio State Archaeo-

logical and Historical Society, died in New York, December 30, 1903.

He was the son of Lieutenant-Colonel Joseph Pool, and was born in

Elyria, Ohio, October 22, 1860. He went to New York in 1868, attended

private school and later fitted for college at Hopkins Institute, New

Haven, Connecticut. In 1877 he entered the Ohio State University, and

was graduated therefrom on June 22, 1881, with the degree of Ph. B.

While in college he took lead in important measures affecting college

life, and was one of the organizers of the Greek letter society, Phi

Gamma Delta. He was one of the organizers and first president of the

Alcyone Literary Society. He was also one of the establishers and first

editors of the college paper, "The Lantern." He was a splendid student,

a fine athlete, and, through his frank and winning manner, not only

one of the leaders in all college affairs, but a most popular man with

all classes of students. Immediately upon his graduation from O. S. U.,

he attended the Columbia Law School, from which he received his

diploma on June 13, 1883, as Bachelor of Laws "cum laude," and was

admitted to practice by the Supreme Court in 1883. He took a most active

interest in the progress and welfare of his Alma Mater, O. S. U., and

was honored by receiving office from   the Alumni Association. He

also became prominent as an alumnus of the Law School at Columbia

University. He was elected a member of the Loyal Legion, New York

Commandery, of the second class, April 4, 1888. This latter order, at

a stated meeting of the commandery held at Delmonico's, made fitting

recognition of the decease of their honored member, the formal reso-

lution being presented by Brevet Brigadier General Anson G. McCook.

The death of Harwood Pool in the prime of his activity was not only

a sad blow to his innumerable friends and associates but a decided loss

to the community and profession of which he was so conspicuous and

valuable a member. Mr. Pool, from the beginning of his membership in

the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, took deep interest

in its welfare; his removal to New York and residence in that metropolis

seemed in no way to lessen his love for his native state and interest in

the progress of the society which promotes the history of the Buckeye
