The following text is reproduced from (the report of the) Eleventh Annual Reunion of the Association of the Graduates of the United States Military Academy, June 17, 1880.

 p17  Myron W. Howe
No. 2564. Class of 1875.
Died, June 16, 1879, at San Diego, California, aged 27.

Lieut. Howe was a native of Massachusetts, from which State he was appointed to the Military Academy in 1870, graduating five years later, No. 13 in the Class of 1875.

He was promoted to be Second Lieutenant, 4th Artillery, serving first at the Presidio, California, and later at Sitka and Fort Stevens, Oregon. He was in the field in the Nez Perces campaign, but was compelled by sickness to return to Fort Stevens. He was afterwards stationed at San Diego, California, for two months, returning there later on sick leave. He died of consumption at San Diego, June 16, 1879.

One of Lieutenant Howe's classmates thus writes of him: "Though not easily forming friendships, he seemed to be greatly esteemed by those who knew him intimately, and in the relations of son and brother, was worthy of the highest regard."

(Secretary of the Association.)
