Thayer's Note:

a The quick reader of this summary in Cullum's Register might get the impression that Prof. Larned's was a somewhat inconsequential career. The AOG obituary is recommended reading, setting us right on this point; he was one of the three or four people in the history of West Point to have the greatest influence on the Academy's physical plant and appearance.
