Judge Gmbh piesented to the school

Dickinson, also the portrait* of John
Dickinson, Judge Willard Hall, father
of the free seliool system of Delaware,

'«fore Ihe recent additions were made.
Judge Grubb, in prescuting Ihe r;

Continuing, lie «aid, many former
pupil* of the school have afterward
attiuned success and distinction in
various line#. One of these is Diaries
D. Bird, a native of the hundred, who
was the late mayor of Wilmington,
also recalled another. William Dyde,
president of the Clyoe Steamship Co,
of New York. In fact Brandywine
hundred lias not Ixsen wanting in pro
ducing men of worth and distinction
in after life. Speaking of mayors, John
P. AUmoiid, a native of tlie hundred,
was also mayor of Wilmington. Charles
Gilpin, yeara ago mayor of Philndcl;ihia,
and l idled Slates District Attorney a
son of Edward Gilpin and Lydia Grubb,
was also of the old Brandywine hun
ched stock, as was also Edward W. Gil
pin. one of Delaware s best and worthiest
chief justices.
Victor d.« Pont, a former president of
the Union National Hank, Wilmington,
and one of the best lawyers and most
beloved citizen of bis day, was bom and
bred in Brandywine hundred and his
distinguished unde, the gallant Admiral
du Pont, from his childhood to his
death, waa a resident of the hundred.
"Today," he continued, "our present
governor, Preston Lea, was also a native
of her soil, so you see our old hundred
of Brandywine, ran walk erect and hold
her head proudly among her sister hun
dreds of the State,"
In referernce to the deed and framed
portraits and photographs, presented
by Judge tiruhh, he said: "This deed is
Ihe original parchment indenture made
and signed by John Dickerson, more than
100 years ago. This old deed I found
some muni he ago among some pa tiers
of my grandfather, James Grubb, Eng,,
of Grubb's Landing, who waa one of the
five trustees to whom John Dickerson
conveyed t he ground for school purposes
forever. This framed likeness of John
Dickinson is taken from a rare portrait
of him. John Dickinson waa one of tha
most noted

«»me time, was governor of Delaware,
f overnor of Pennsylvania, mendier of
'ongresa from IVlawnre and ex-officio,
chief justiee of the High Court of Ap

"Three Slates clamed him as a citizen,

"Thin other framed |ioitrait is an excel
lent likeness of Judge Willard Hall, who
was born in Massachusetts in 17(50. and
died in Wilmington in 1875. in his tl.ith
year. He cams to Delaware in 1903,
practiced law at Dover until 1823, when
be was appointed United (Mates District
Judge for the District of Delaware, by
President Monroe, which office he lielii
for 48 years until his resignation in 1871."
Judge Grubb also referred to Ihe various
other offices and poaifions of fruit which
be had held in I Ma ware, and said:
knew him while he waa eminent os an
earnest Christian philanthropist, lawyer
and judge, and with hi* New England
training, ideas and methods, and a dis
interested public spirit made an enduring
impression upon Ihe institutions and
people of hi* adopted Stale,
he always remembered hy the people of
Delaware as a framer of our first State
free school act of 1829, and as the real
founder of the public free school ay stem
Delaware, Jo which he gave the best effort*

Therefore. I have llumghl it most appro
priai# that his portrait should hang upon
