The Trustees noted the death of Hon. Timothy Boutelle, member of board when the College first incorporated in 1821, until his death. “While we leave it to the religious society with which he was connected to estimate his religious character, to his political friends to care for his fame as a statesman, and to the members of the legal profession to set forth his abilities as a counselor at law, to the people of Waterville to honor his virtues as a citizen. … We feel it our duty and privilege to record our recollection of him as a wise and judicious friend of science and literature and as a firm and persevering friend of Waterville College. The minds which he helped to cultivate are living memorials to the worth of his endeavors.”
