Excerpt from Addresses Delivered at Public Services at Bowdoin College, October Twenty-Fourth, Nineteen Hundred and Seventeen: And Other Tributes to the Memory of President William Dewittt Hyde

Bowdoin College has lost a great president and gained a great memory. The workman lays down his tools, the teacher's voice grows silent, the friend passes from sight; but the work continues, the inspiration of personality remains, the friend takes on a new and mysterious power.

It is but half a year ago that the man we remember with so profound a sense of loss delivered before his fellow townspeople a vigorous address on the great war, and was in the full activity of his college work. He afterwards wrote his baccalaureate sermon, though he did not deliver it. All this seems very recent - and now the change. He lives and works among us to-day as an invisible presence. We shall know him henceforth as a great and dynamic memory.

My acquaintance with President Hyde covered the entire period of his connection with the college; my more intimate association, through membership in the Board of Trustees, exactly the second half of that period. I have seen him at the council table, in the class-room, in the pulpit, on the educational platform, in the social gathering, at the public dinner, on the railway train, on the playground, at the vacation resort, and in his own home. I have known him in times of gladness and in times of trial; when the world praised him and when blame and criticism were his lot. And from no time or place in this long and varied experience do I recall any word or deed of his unworthy of a true man; but, on the contrary, many a kindly or uplifting utterance, and many an act revealing a large and generous soul. He was one and the same man everywhere and always. The warp and woof of his life were as a garment woven without seam and worn without blemish.

There are many sides to the nature of any man of vision and power.
