There are lives that should be better known and every memory of them jealously cherished. A debt of gratitude and a clear responsibility rest upon those whose privilege it has been to enjoy an exceptional inﬂuence. Horatio Stebbins, in his day and generation, was a man of rare power and lofty spirit. He was a great personality, with uncommon gifts of mind and heart. His mountainous faith was a marked characteristic. He united strength and tenderness in a degree that made him a leader of men. His absolute integrity, his kindliness, his serenity, his patient faithfulness, his fortitude, his magnanimity, his humor, made him the embodiment of the best religious life. For fifty years he preached a rational and reverent religion, with great power. He loved God and his fellow-men. He lived happily, he served gladly, he died courageously.
