Excerpt from Proceedings: January 28-October 27, 1908 The students said that he talked too much about sin. Perhaps he did. They said that he was wordy. He did drive a substantive and six, as they said of Rufus Choate. But it was all very good; and I think we never had a man here who cared more for our welfare than Dr. Huntington. You know if a man gets an unfortunate name in college he seldom loses it; and Dr. Huntington made an error in the beginning. He called us together and sought our favor, and among other things said, I have asked that I may not be required to join the faculty; I want to stand outside as your friend. Well, we believed in that and rather liked it. Then presently he was in the faculty. The fellows never understood quite how he got there, what the change of mind was; but it gave rise to one of those college prejudices which you cannot reason against. But he was one of the best of men. I think the hardest contest I had in college was for him. It came time to get the bacca laureate preacher. We had a class meeting, and the class said the Plummer professor should not preach that sermon. I thought that he should, if I could bring it about. I made the best argument I could and was beaten, as I have been many times since. They said the President should preach the sermon. Dr. Walker was waited on, and he simply remarked, Whoever happens to be preaching that day will preach that sermon. The Plummer professor preached it. I had my way after all, though it was gathering victory out of defeat. I have the greatest regard for Dr. Huntington. I think it was unfortunate that he was here, but no man was ever mo're faith ful and loyal, and he did more in some ways than anybody else at that time.
