Century Memorial

Donald Butler Toucey, the son of our old fellow-member, John M. Toucey, was born in 1861, and was a graduate of Columbia College and Columbia Law School. He was for some time connected with the law department of the New York Central Railroad, and at the time of his death was counsel for the United States Life Insurance Company. He was of vigorous physique, and fond of out-door life, and his untimely death was sincerely regretted in his profession, in which he was highly respected, and in The Century, where, though he had been a member but a few years, he had many attached friends.
