The fine commencement exercises of
Fisk University, accentuated very
strikingly the policy of the school and
the character of the man who is now
its president. Of course, Dr. Merrill
is blessed with a strong taculty, wno
exert their splendid abilities harmoni
ously with that of the president (a
thing devoutly to be hoped for in all
f-.chools), but. the South, and particu
larly the Negro, both are , to be con
gratulated that such a man as James
Griswold Merrill is giving his life as
president of Fisk University.
Dr. Merrill came to Fisk in 1899 as
Dean of the College Faculty and upon
the death of that great and good man,
Erastus M. Cravath, was made presi
dent. The qualities that appear most
strikingly in him are his rugged man
hood, his courage, and his strict ad
herence to the principle of the "Father
hood of God and the brotherhood of
From the principle of action, which
seems clearly set forth by his life, he
has not deviated since he took "up the
work here in Nashville, and the result
is shown in the progress the Universi
ty has been making. True it is, that
some of his utterances have brought
him into controversy with some of our
Southern friends, but, it is to his eter
nal credit, that he stood the test like
a man, and by the deepest and best peo
ple of the city he is held in high es-
fsteeni a man.
Taking up the work just after such a
masterful personality as Dr. Cravath

was enough to overwhelm almost any
man. If must be remembered that Dr.
Cravath established the school and
vas largely responsible ,for what it
was. The faculty, students, graduates,
and the Negro race loved him, and the
public honored him, and justly so, for
nature never made many men like
Then, Dr. Merrill was entirely new
to the work of education of the Negro,
having spent more than a quarter of a
century in the pastorate in the West
and New England, but his good sense
and right-heartedness solved the situa
tion. He was willing to learn, and al
ways tried to be fair to everybody.
There are more expert educators tech
nically speaking, that President Mer
rill, but there are no fairer ones.
As far as we have been able to learn,
Dr. Merrill's interest in the education
of the Negro springs not from a love
of the Negro as a Negro, but from the
love of the Negro as one of God's chil
dren; and this is simple Christianity.
His life is a benediction upon us,
and it is rather unfortunate that he
cannot spend more time at the Univer.
ity, but it seems necessary at present
that he spend much time seeking
funds for the school. It would be a
greater help to our city folk if when
the president Is in town he could spend
more time preaching and speaking
among our churches and other gather
We hope for a long, long life for
President Merrill and his work at Fisk
