John Schmid, one of the trustees of the New Paltz Normal School died Wednesday morning while the commencement exercises were being held at that institution. Mr. Schmid had been in poor health for some time but had made an effort to be up so as to attend the closing exercises. It was only after being warned by his physician that he agreed to stay at home. While the exercises were in progress word was received of his death and cast a gloom over the assemblage. He was stricken with typhoid fever which was the cause of his death. Mr. Schmid was 61 years old and had been in the clothing business in New Paltz for many years. He was vice-president of the Huguenot National Bank, an official in the savings bank and had served as village clerk besides holding other positions of trust. He is survived by a widow and one son, Otto. The funeral will be held Saturday.
