the apparent similarity of these three pairs of sites. Campbell Island is but 20 miles removed from Madisonville, while less than 30 miles to the northeast from the latter is Fort Ancient, forming the third angle of the triangle embracing these several Miami river sites. While the Fox site, located 14 miles southwest of Maysville, Kentucky, is upwards of 50 miles from the Feurt site (on the Scioto, just above its juncture with the Ohio) this distance is considerably less than that from the Fox site to Madisonville. The Gartner site, on the Scioto river, north of Chillicothe, is less than 20 miles removed from the Baum site, in the Paint creek valley of Ross county.

There remain a number of unexplored sites of this culture in the state, while many others, presumably of the same group, are to be found along the river in adjacent territory. The examination of these sites outside of Ohio is greatly to be desired, in order that the evidence which they contain may be added to that already available regarding the migrations and chronology of the great Fort Ancient group of our prehistoric population.

HONORABLE JAMES E. CAMPBELL, President of Ohio State Archæological and Historical Society.

Former Governor of Ohio.

TRIBUTE TO JAMES EDWIN CAMPBELL *

BY DR. WILLIAM OXLEY THOMPSON

HONORABLE JAMES EDWIN CAMPBELL:

The present opportunity is taken by the University to extend to you most cordial greetings in recognition of your distinguished citizenship and of the approaching anniversary of your birthday. The University, unable to be in session on July seventh, anticipates the exact date and assures you of its warmest felicitations upon the noble public career to which we all turn with a genuine and patriotic pride. Ohio your birthplace has had many distinguished public citizens whose character and achievements have been a continual inspiration to their children from generation to generation. The University congratulates you today that your name has been written indelibly upon that scroll of honor and service. The zeal of youth that carried you into the struggle for the life of the Nation and later with unusual brilliancy into the active field of politics has ripened in these later years into a strength and dignity of character, a breadth of horizon, a generosity of spirit and a refinement of intellect that have made you the most beloved neighbor and citizen in our great commonwealth.

The University recognizes with profound gratitude the important service you rendered to the cause of higher education in 1889-1891, when Governor of Ohio, and later, in 1895-1896, when you served as a member of the Board of Trustees. The passage of the Hysell bill, providing the first state levy for the maintenance of the University, was possible because of

your

active support of the measure This was the most important legislation of your administration and will, we trust, perpetuate your memory as the friend of higher education and in a most vital hour the devoted friend of the Ohio State University. From your message to the General Assembly, January 6, 1891, we direct attention to these significant statements:

The Ohio State University is worthy of your fostering care. The University has made notable progress, and through your generous, although somewhat fitful aid, it has become a credit to the State. Many persons are of the opinion that a small special tax for the benefit of this University is a burden which the people would bear cheerfully for the sake of education and advancement. You might, therefore, very properly inquire whether the national gift ought not to be supplemented by a permanent fund of such a character.

The University recognizes gratefully that your attitude in contrast with that of five predecessors who did not even mention the University became a clarion call to others to urge a more liberal provision for the University. That day was the dawn of the modern progress now so happily achieved in which we all rejoice.

The University finds genuine satisfaction in contemplating the patriotic ancestry from which you sprang. Your grandfather — Samuel Campbell

Samuel Campbell — served in the war of 1812. Your grandmother — Mary Small Campbell — was the daughter of a Revolutionary soldier. From this ancestry sprang a son — Lewis D. Campbell - who served with distinction in both civil and military life as did his brother-in-law — Robert Reily — who made the supreme sacrifice at Chancellorsville in 1863. Then follows a list of grandchildren among whom you stand the sole survivor — who served in the Civil War. The later generation of great grandchildren, not fewer than eighteen in number, among whom your own daughter is numbered with a brilliant record in France, and your son, James Edwin Campbell, Jr., with the rank of Captain and overseas service, presents a military service in the World War rarely equalled. Standing as you do amid five generations alike patriotic in their devotion to the democratic government under which we live, the University greets you as one of Ohio's most beloved sons honored alike in war, in

peace

and in public life.

The Trustees and Faculty of the University join today in this testimonial, as we believe all good citizens of Ohio would have us do, to give expression to our affection and to place in your hands a record of the high esteem in which thousands of our grateful alumni

hold you.

We greet you as citizen, soldier, patriot, public servant, patron of education and lover of humanity.

Long may you live to enjoy the honors cheerfully awarded, and to be happy in the affection of your friends and fellow citizens.
