Century Memorial

Walter Cary Tuckerman, the son of Mr. Lucius Tuckerman, was a graduate of Harvard University, and occupied the enviable position of a gentleman of ample means and with liberal tastes, which were directed to the pleasure of his friends, and a public spirit which rendered them of great service to all measures of benefit to his fellow men.

He was deservedly popular, and the esteem in which he was held was founded on a fine character.
