To Members of the Faculty; On Tuesday, June 16th, the Alumni Association of the University will hold exercises in commemoration of the work and services of 2>r« John Milton Gregory, first President of the University of Illinois. The exercises will take the form of a series of addresses in the Auditorium in the forenoon of Tuesday* In the afternoon a tablet will be unveiled which maris the grave of Dr. Gregory on the campus* Tou are cordially invited, I might say earnestly requested, to be present on both of these occasions. This is not merely an alumni tribute,
but a tribute of the University to the work of this man, and It is well worth the while of everyone of us who is benefiting by his labors to participate in the exercises of this occasion. Faithfully yours, Edmund J. James
