                     DEATHS
   HENRY W. HOYT, '72, life member of the General
 Alumni Association, departed this life on the 30th
 day of January, 1925, at his home at Pasadena, Cali-
 fornia, where with his wife and daughter he had re-
 sided since his retirement friom active business a few
 years ago.
   Soon after graduation from  the University, Mr.
 Hoyt with his classmate, Horace M. Wells, located at
 Crete, Nebraska, and engaged in the newspaper and
 printing business, but he remained there only a few
 months, when he disposed of his interest in said busi-
 ness to Mr. Wells, and returned to Madison, and
 accepted the position of associate owner and editor
 of the Madison Democrat, which position he held for
 several years. He then disposed of his newspaper
 interests and entered the hotel business, being con-
 nected at first with the Park Hotel at Madison. In
 1883 he severed this connection and removed to
 Chicago, and associated with Mr. Gates, son of the
, owner and operator of the Gates Iron Works, leased
and operated the Gault House for a few years very
successfully and profitably.
   He and his partner then disposed of this business
 upon the suggestion of his partner's father, who de-
 sired to retire from .active work and invested their
 funds in and took active management of the Gates
 Iron Works, a large and profitable manufacturing
 institution.
   For many years Mr. Hoyt gave his undivided at-
 tention to this business which continued to be suc-
 cessful and profitable. During this time he became
 prominent as an arbitrator of disputes between labor
 and capital, and gave much time to the settlement of
 labor troubles. In many instances he was selected by
 all the parties interested for such service.
   For a considerable period he was president of the
 National Founders' Association, and his services in
 this connection were recognized at the end of his
    COME BACK and see your old professors. They gave you much. Give them
the best you can give them-
the knowledge that their work was worth while and that you are thankful.
