children, William A. Slater, Jr., and
Airs. E, Halsey Aralone of New York;
Mr. Slater's name is Inseparably
connected with the most princely bene
factions toward his native town ever
made by any individual donor, best
known of which is the Slater Memor

. Another of the magnificent gifts bf
this philanthropic millionaire was a
building endowment of $375,000 to the
W. W. Backus hospital. He Partie!-
pated liberally in every enterprise that
might benefit his native eity, giving
largely io cnarity also, but in a way
few knew how much his gifts amount-'
ed to. He subscribed about $15,000
when the Young Men's Christian As
sociation building was erected, had
been a large supporter of the Norwich
City mission in years past, and gave
tne nna.nciai support that broueht
some or me greatest artists and most
noted lecturers in the world to the
Slater Memorial hall in entertainment
courses in connection with the Nor

of $10,000 to the Slater Free library

The Slater mansion on Broadway,

rai'lion dollars, was long the hand
somest residence property in the city
standing in a plot of about nine acres
of beautiful lawn, embellished witli
shade trees. After Mr. Slater remov

sold, the house dismantled and the
land cut up into building lots.
