gotten a more intimate idea of him, given in few words but full
of light and life. "Bugbee," Dr. Barker once said to me, "was the
great man in my development-not forgetting, of course, the debt
we all owed to Dr. Garrison. It was Bugbee who came into closer
and more informal contact with the students, and he was a very
delightful person-very stimulating. Many of the students hung
on his every word. He was a finished scholar, and what he pub-
lished set before us models of the best historical writing. He had
the gift of sensing the perspective of his subject and of thus throw-
ing his article into a setting which put it in touch with the time."
The notice of his death was carried in THE QUARTERLY of July,
1902, and on the cover of the same number appeared the name of
his successor, Eugene C. Barker. Two years later, on the cover
of the April, 1904, number, emerges the name of another young
recruit, H. E. Bolton, appointed with Barker to a position which
shows a new departure in the management of the magazine, that
-of "associate" editors. This was the beginning of the end of the
publication committee, whose names shortly afterwards disappeared
from the cover, superseded by those of the "associate" editors.
Then, in 1906, comes another change, when the name of Eugene
C. Barker is replaced by that of Charles W. Ramsdell, third in the
office of secretary-treasurer and, after twenty-two years, still giving
himself to the work in the same spirit as that of his two prede-
-cessors. In 1910, in the April number, the name of Bolton dis-
appears from the cover as associate editor, and there comes out
that of another valuable new recruit, E. W. Winkler. Then, finally,
the October, 1910, number noted a change which marks the end
of our first epoch: the place occupied from the beginning by the
name of Dr. Garrison as editor-in-chief is blank. He died in July,
,cut down, as I have always believed, by overwork, the last straw
-of which was the editing of the Texas Diplomatic Correspondence.
In a talk I had with him a few weeks before his death, and the
last time I ever saw him, he spoke of his extreme weariness and
said that he was hoping that as soon as the last touch had been
put to this work he might find a chance to rest and recuperate, for,
he went on to say, the labor of it, added to his other duties, had
become a load almost insupportable. Shortly afterward, we heard
.of his illness. On his death-bed, he read the proofs of the final
