The personal changes which have occurred during the past two years and a half are numerous.My revered predecessor, Dr. Henry Durant, after a long life devoted to the public service, was removed by death January 22 d, 1875. The tributes which have been paid to his character are already so ample, that here it is only necessary to place on record our grateful appreciation of his wisdom, his devotion, and his success in keeping alive the idea of a university in California, and in laboring for its foundation with untiring industry.

It is a cause of regret that he has left behind him so little, in print or in manuscript, which will explain to those who come after him the peculiar difficulties and trials which he encountered. Some anecdotes noted down by a short-hand writer one evening at the request of a friend, as Dr. Durant related them, have been preserved in illustration of his experience, and his associates have told in various ways the story of his life- but his fame will depend on the place he has won in the roll of those who helped to found the institutions of California.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
