Veteran Educator Dead
Prof. Edmund L. Patton Served as President at Two Colleges
Professor Edmund L. Patton died last evening at 8PM after a short illness at his home at the Madeira Apartments, 711 Twenty-second Street Northwest in the eighty-first year of his age.

Dr. Patton's life was spent in the cause of education, he having been President of Erskine College, Due West, South Carolina, President of the West Tennessee College at Jackson, Tennessee and for sixteen years professor of ancient languages in the University of South Carolina at Columbia. He retired from the latter institution in 1898 since which time he has made his home with his two sons, W.E. Patton, clerk in the War Department and Lieutenant Commander J.B. Patton, United States Navy. He leaves a widow and the two sons mentioned.

Dr. Patton was born in Abbeville County, South Carolina in 1827 and was the son of William Patton, a successful planter of that State. He is the last of a family of nine children.

Among Dr. Patton's former pupils are several Washingtonians, J.J. Darlington and Charles A. Douglass and J. Altheus Johnson of the Washington Bar and Mr. W.O. Bradley, Chief of one of the divisions of the Treasury Department.

The funeral exercises will be conducted at his home by Rev. H. Waddell Pratt, Pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church and the burial will be at Oak Hill Cemetery.
