Two Marin County Young Men Win Honors At An Eastern College

Philadelphia, Pa., papers of last week give a full and interesting account of the annual graduation exercises on the 5th inst at the Medico-Chirurgical College in that city. Dr. John Grier Hibben, president of Princetown University, addressed the graduates and a large audience of visitors of the Academy of music, Phila.

The class was one of t he largest which has been sent from the Medico-Chirurgical College for several years. Seventy-five of its members received the degree of doctor of medicine, forty-five are graduate dentists, forty are pharmacists and fifteen received degrees in pharmaceutic chemistry.

Several California youths are enrolled in the student body of that institution which ranks as one of the highest of its kind in America.

The records there of two promising young men of Marin county are evidence that they have made good, each winning a faculty honor in his class during the past year.

Erwin J. HUND, son of Dr. F. J. Hund of Ross Valley, is one of this large graduating class. In addition to his college degree he received honorable mention for high standing as a senior.

Robert M. FURLONG, son of former school superintendent Robert Furlong of this city, matriculated at the College one year ago and is named first in a list of six students who received honorable mention in the large class of the freshman year.

Both of these young men studied in the schools of Marin county and later took a four years’ course in the California School of Mechanical Arts, San Francisco.

Marin county youths appear to win distinction in fields of endeavor outside their county and state.
