served their golden wedding anniversary on

came as refugees from the San Francisco

after Mr. Cornish's 83rd birthday (he notes
there was an eclipse of the sun the day he
was born, Aug. 7, 1869, in Oshkosh, four
years after his father graduated from Wis-
consin in 1865.) He is a former president
of the Northern California Alumni Club

record for tenure in such an office.

translation of a very technical book written
by him since his retirement. It covers a new
procedure for computing the strength of
building frames which substantially reduces
the labor of analyzing various forms of
frames and is titled "Die Traversen-Meth-
ode," in its German form.
