Century Memorial

George Fuller had been fifty-two years a member, having been chosen when he was twenty-five [sic: twenty-four]. He was one of our two oldest members. His election at an age so young is the sufficient witness of his qualities. He was a merchant, pursuing his business with diligence, but he had refined taste and keen appreciation for what is best in the works of men, their art, their literature, and their science. He lived and walked worthily among his peers. His New Jersey stock was famous, his education sound and never ending, his personality attractive.
