An old and loyal friend of St. Augustine’s was lost
in the death of the Rev. Robert B. Drane, D.D., retired
rector of St. Paul’s Church, Edenton, N. C. Dr. Drane
served the same parish as rector for fifty-six years.
He was in his eighty-eighth year at the time of his
death in Edenton on the eve of All Saints’ Day. From
1917 to 1936, Dr. Drane served as a member of the
Board of Trustees of St. Augustine’s College, in which
he showed great interest, attending the meetings regu
larly even after failing health had compelled him to
resign his roctorate in Edenton. He was the nephew
of the elder Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, one of the
incorporators of St. Augustine’s in 1867, and conse
quently a cousin of the late Bishop Cheshire, who was
for so many years president of our Board of Trustees.
Dr. Drane was also a trustee of St. Mary’s School
and of the University of the South.
