President Taft Expected to Take
Prominent Part In the Exercises.
Largest Gathering of Miami Men In
the" University's .History Looked For.
Elaborate Program Arranged.
Miami university, one of Ohio's three
state supported colleges, but the first
in age, tradition and in the distinction
of her graduates, will be a hundred
years old in June. Already plans are
matured for a centennial celebration at
Oxford that will attract nation wide
attention. It is practically certain that
the president of the United States will
be among the guests, and if Mr. Taft
is present he will undoubtedly speak.
The first invitation issued for the'
event was taken to the president by a 1
representative of the college. Mr. Taft
expressed a strong desire to come and
informed the committee that he would
do so if congress adjourned before
June 16, the day of the chief exercises.
But whether the president qf the
United States is present or absent there
will be no lack of notable visitors. The
centennial committee has hopes to re
ceive a definite acceptance from White
law Reid, class of 1S56, now ambassa
dor to the court of St. James. Mr.
Reid delivered the principal address on
the occasion of the celebration of the
college's diamond jubilee, and he has
informed the committee that he will
take part in the centennial if possible.
The centennial address, the chief
speech of the celebration, will be deliv
ered on the morning of Wednesday,
June 16. by Dr. Henry Mitchell Mac
Cracken, chancellor of the University
of the City of New York, a member of
the class of 1S57. Another well known
New Yorker who is expected to take
part in the exercises is Dr. John Shaw
Billings, director of the New. York pub
lic libraries, who was also a member of
the class of 1857.
. The program of speeches will be ex
tensive. George R. Wendlin of Wash
ington, of the class of 1865, will de
liver the address to the literary socie
ties. ' The presidents of many colleges
will-be heard. Albert Hill of the Uni
versity of . Missouri will speak for the
colleges of the west. President EJ. W.
Scott of the University of New York
for the east, President F. W.: Hinnett
of Central university for the south. Dr.
Guy Potter Benton, president of the
university, will preside at all the events,
and all of the living presidents of Mi
ami are expected to be present. ' Gov
ernor' Judson Harmon of Ohio will be
among the speakers.
The' most interesting figure at the
celebration, if he is able to carry out
his present purpose to attend, will be
the Rev.: Dr. Charles McCaughan of
Winterset, la., the Oldest living Miami
graduate. Dr. McCaughan is a United
Presbyterian minister. - ": He is ninety
five years old and is a graduate of
the class of '37. "He attended the
Miami commencement last June, stop
ping on his way home, from the United
Presbyterian general assembly at
Pittsburg. He preached regularly until
his ninety-third year. His health has
been vigorous all through his life, but
during the past winter he1 has failed
somewhat, and some anxiety is felt
lest he may be unable to attend.
The centennial will be held this year
as a feature of commencement week
and, according to- the outlined plans,
will include several days in its vari
ous features. Dr. Albery H. Upham
of the university is the chairman of
the committee, and B. S. Bartlow of
Hamilton is its secretary. The pro
gram will include these features:
Saturday, June 12. Students night.
Historical pageants, torchlight parade,
singing on the campus.
Sunday, June 13. Baccalaureate sermon
at half past 10 a. m., annual sermon be
fore Christian associations at half past
7 p. m.
Monday, June 14. Annual oratorical con
tests, reunion of alumni of Normal col
lege, annual senior dramatics.
Tuesday, June IS. Commencement of
Teachers' college class day program, cam
pus concert, class day play.
Wednesday, June 16. Centennial cere
monies, academic procession, centennial
address, congratulatory addresses by rep
resentatives of state and national gov
ernments and of colleges, addresses by
former presidents of the university, re
sponses, centennial ode. Alumni dinner

session. Responses by representatives of
each, administration of the university.
Class reunions at 5 p. m. Reunions of the
literary clubs. Reunions of the Greek
Thursday, June 17. Annual commence
ment exercises. '
According to the expectation of the
members of the centennial committee,
there will be the largest gathering of
Miami men in the history of the school.
It is believed that at least 2,500 gradu
ates and former students will assemble
at Oxford from all parts of the United
States and the world. Preparations
have been made to house the visitors
In the college dormitories and in a vil
lage of tents to be erected on the cam
pus.; If the weather is fine the visitors
will have a touch of camp life amid
academic surroundings. '
Miami university is only six years
younger than the state of Ohio, and, in
fact, her beginning dates back beyond
that of the state. When congress in
1792 granted an enormous tract of the
wilderness lying between the two Mi
ami rivers and extending as far north
as Dayton to John Cleves Symmes, It
was provided in the grant that a tract
was to be set aside for the purposes of
education. This was the real begin
ning of the university. "
