The Princeton College Bulletin free pdf Excerpt from The Princeton College Bulletin: A Quarterly Record Edited by the President and Members of the Faculty- February, 1895 The venerable ex-President of the College died on the sixteenth day of last November. He had been steadily failing during the summer and autumn and the end came peacefully and without pain. He is greatly missed: for while he had not taken a very active part in the affairs of the College since he resigned the Presidency in 1888, he continued to the last to feel a deep interest in the institution to which he had given twenty of the best years of his life. He never lost his enthusiasm for Philosophy and some of us will long remember a meeting of the Philosophical Club not more than a year ago, when he entered into the discussions of the evening with his old energy and alertness. We shall never forget the debt which Princeton owes to Dr. McCosh. A great chapter in the history of the College was closed when he laid aside the burdens of his office and turned over the responsibilities of the Presidency to his successor. Beyond all question his was the most brilliant administration that Princeton has ever had. Everything contributed to add to the glory of that administration: the circumstances attending the Doctor's coming, the condition of the College when he came, what he was, and what he did. He found Princeton depleted by the war, yet already awakening to a new life. The money necessary for her equipment was ready and he came in time to give wise direction to its use. He brought to the service of the College, a high reputation as a thinker, a commanding personality, and ripe experience as an educator: and with a purpose that was never daunted he bent himself to the task of making Princeton one of the foremost seats of learning in America. The death of Dr. McCosh was the close of a great career. His young manhood was spent amid the stirring scenes connected with the disruption of the Church of Scotland in 1843. He was a prominent champion of the intuitional philosophy in the days when Mill and Mansel were recognized leaders of opinion in Great Britain. Leaving the pastorate for a Professorship in Belfast, he became not only a great teacher of philosophy, but a public spirited student of educational questions. He came to America in the prime of manhood. As President of Princeton College he was enthusiastic, vigilant and wise. He loved the College. He loved his pupils. He had the rare gift of being able to kindle and keep alive in others that zeal for philosophy which was so characteristic of himself. He was hospitable to new ideas, yet zealous also for the maintenance of the great Christian verities that are woven into the entire web of our College history.
