Century Memorial

The ancient catalogue of our numbers, comprising those who founded the association, has lost in the past year the name of C. C. Ingham. Although in later times withdrawn from the Club, and in a great measure from public or social activity, the reputation of Ingham and his rank among the painters of the country were so assured, that he will always stand high among the illustrations of our earlier course, and be mentioned with respect as one whose name honored our rolls.
