Professor Spencer Ambrose Beach
The "Master of all Good Workmen" has called from our Forestry faculty a true friend and a great teacher. Ames Foresters learned of the death of Professor S. A. Beach, Vice-Dean of Agriculture, with heartfelt sorrw; little had we expected when he was with us at our annual spring campfire early last June that it was the last time we would be privileged to have his genial company on such occasions. The brief talk he gave that night was the last he ever addressed to Ames Foresters; yet when we now review in our memories the thoughts he expressed, there seems to have been in them something of the prophetic. Fellowship in service was his theme; the ever valued personal touches in all undertakings, which, he said, were the outstanding points in the characters of leading workers.
