ADDRESS OF ELIHU ROOT PRESIDENT OF THE CENTURY ASSOCIATIOS GENTLEMEX OF THE CENTURY It is peculiarlqgrateful to me that the first occasion of performing the duties to which your too partial judgment has called me should be in memory of the noble and dear friend who has been our President during these past years. Many organizations and institutions have done honor to his memory. He was a lawyer whose exceptional talent in some directions rose almost, if not quite, to genius, and the lawyers have with one acclaim paid honor to his memory. He was a diplomatist of the highest quality, and the public men of this country and of Europe have testified to their high appreciation of his work and his achievements. He was a great citizen, imbued with a sense of duty to his country, to the community in which he lived, to his fellowmen, during all his long life laboring without ceasing ungrudgingly for their benefit.

He worked for . the poor with deep comprehension of all their troubles, their sufferings, their sorrows. As Presi dent of the State Charities Aid Association, as Governor of the New York Hospital, as President of the Society for the Blind, in all his busy life always ready to give his time and his effort in that cause. And from all these associations of his long life have come expressions of sorrow over his loss, of admiration for his career, and of gratitude for the things that he accomplished. We meet, we, his old friends in The Century, meet for something far different. We meet to celebrate the man as we knew him, his personality. As I look back over his life, with more than forty years of which I was very familiar, it seems to me that, as I sum up what he did in all the directions to which he turned his high abilities, as I sum them all up, the man was greater than they, the man was greater than what he did...
