Memorial Notice (5)

New York Times

GUGGENHEIM---At the first meeting of the Board of Directors of the Hebrew Technical Institute held since the sinking of the Titanic, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted:

Whereas, We have learned with deep sorrow of the untimely, and tragic death of our former co-Director, Benjamin Guggenheim, in the very prime of manhood and usefulness, and remembering, as we do, his genial counsel and the keen interest he ever evinced in the welfare of our school,

Be it Resolved, That we extend to the family of the deceased the assurance of our heartfelt sympathy in the great loss they have sustained---a loss which is keenly felt by the whole community; but more especially by all who, like ourselves, knew and appreciated his generous impulses, his kindly sympathies, his genial personality.

We cannot but feel that a career full of possibilities of larger achievement and rich in promise of even broader service to his fellow-men has been cut short by a ruthless and needless catastrophe.

May the consciousness that a numberless host of friends, among whom every Director of the Hebrew Technical Institute wishes to be counted, shares their grief, bring some measure of solace to the bereaved family in the hour of their supreme trial.

Resolved, That these resolutions be published and a copy be transmitted to the family of the deceased.

JOSEPH L. BUTTENWIESER, Acting President.
EUGENE E. SPIEGELBERG, Secretary.
