Century Memorial

Charles Burrall Hoffman, Benjamin L. Swan, Jr., James C. Derby, and Samuel McLean, the last of whom was suddenly taken from us last Tuesday, were men of high character in the business world, where they were well known and prominent. The interests committed to their charge were served faithfully, and with marked integrity, and they have left behind them unsullied reputations.
