Professor Littell is a man of whom Scranton is very proud. He is the son of the late H. W. Littell and belongs to one of the oldest families in this region. He has achieved a remarkable place for himself, of which a man twice his years might well be proud. He is now professor of mathematics in the navy department with the rank of Lieutenant, and is considered one of the foremost men in the nation in his particular profession. Last year (1901) he was in charge of the expedition which went to Sumatra for astronomical observations, and his knowledge of scientific subjects is so great that much is expected of his future career.
