'I'he son of .John and Sarah A. ('lark Hunter,
Dr. Hunter was born in Philadelpliia, Pa., on
A])ril 2(), 1S,')4. II(> was graduated from the Cen
tral high seliool of tliat city in 1871 and in 1S7G
1k> received his (h'gree frou\ Amlierst ('ollege. He
was awarik'd the degree of Doctor of Divinity
from Amherst in 1910 and like degrees were given
by th(> University of tlie South and the Union
Theological Seminary. He graduated from the
Union Theological Seminary in 1879 and a year
later attended the University of Berlin.
Dr. Hunter was a member of Delta Upsilon,
Phi Beta Kappa and the Amherst Club.
Dr. Hunter’s interest in the work of St. Augus
tine’s did not end when his connection with it was
severed in an active capacity. He always evi
denced a keen desire to take a part in its program
and only a few years ago, contributed largely to
the establishment of a fine library there. In order
to furnish the library, Dr. Hunter sold a number
of exceedingly rare prints and books, dealing with
the earliest printing period and before it. The
proceeds of this sale were used in furnishing the
library at St. Augustine’s.
In 1920 Dr. Hunter became rector of St. James
Church in Florence, Italy, and later of the Ameri
can churches in Dresden, Germany, and Geneva,
Switzerland. He also served churches in German
town, Ohio, Hillsboro, Ohio, and was rector of
Emmanuel Church, Denver, Colo., and chaplain
of Wolfe Hall, Denver.
In the past Dr. Hunter has served as president
of the standing committee of the Diocese of North
Carolina, and was known in Episcopal church
work throughout the nation.
Dr. Hunter was very liberal in his gifts to many
Dr. Hunter is survivwl by his widow, formerly
!Miss Sarah Lothrop Taylor of Brooklyn, N. Y.
They were married January 9, 1888.
For the past two years, Dr. Hunter had taught
a Bible class at Christ Church here.
Tlie library began the year with the same num
ber on the staff and therefore there has been no
curtailment of service nor shortening of hours.
We hope we can maintain our hard worked for
college standards and in order to do this, more
I'eference material and source books must bo
added. The growth and extension of our college
curriculum depends on adcvjuate library materials
for courses offered.
In spite of a slight decrease in enrollment and
fewer high school classes, our circulation of hooks
for October shows a 2.')^^ increase over last year.
A supplement to our list of books available
through our extension service has bet'u sent out
to the clergy. ^lany requests for books have been
received and there has been a decided increase in
the use of this service which the library is very
glad to give. P- A. S.
