"Although carrying the burdens of great enterprises he gave cheerfully of his time, energy and resources to further every undertaking which was for the best inter ests of the institution, and his assistance was ever at the command of any student whose cause was worthy. "Having by his own energy and ability placed himself in a pre-eminent position in the affairs of the state and nation, he retained throughout his life so strong an instinct of kindliness that no cry of distress went unanswered. His bounteous charities were always be stowed as a friend and never as a patron. "Mr. Butler was a staunch friend, a wise counsellor, a valued citizen, and the Board of Editors of THE EL M S feels that it honors itself in paying him this tribute."
