About this Item

23 folio sheets, typed rectos only and bradbound into unprinted blue paper wraps. Three horizontal folds, tiny tears to the edges of the wrappers, a near fine set. A verbatim transcription of the commencement ceremony noting Rev. William V. Tunnell's invocation, and brief addresses by Hon. H.B.F. Macfarland, and Hon. W.S. Montgomery, the bulk of the transcript is dedicated to Washington's address (complete with notes on the audience's reaction with applause and laughter) and which appears from page five to midway through page 22. OCLC lists a transcription of the speech in another volume published in 1905 (two copies), but makes no mention of this stenographic record. A possibly unique artifact of a major Washington address.
