Quotes from biographical sources

Boston . . . Another well-loved character, Arthur Jeffreys, has also gone to join his ancestors. Arthur's case was [unfortunate]. A Dartmouth graduate, who shortly after receiving the sheep skin, taught for a while; he also had several other jobs. But easy money on the Pullman lured him; then its twin sister, fast living, joined up. The result was that for years Arthur's life was one of hardships, but for the kindness of an aged mother.
