HOWARD N. LEGATE DEAD.
First Clerk of the State Board of Agriculture was originator of the State Crop Report.
Howard N. Legate, for some years first clerk of the State Board of Agriculture, died yesterday at his home, 11 Copeland place, Roxbury, following a week's illness. He was born in Charlemont, Feb 3, 1871. In 1891 he was graduated from the Massachusetts Agricultural College at the head of his class, and he immediately began service as second clerk in the office of the State Board of Agriculture in Boston.
In 1909 he was advanced to the position of first clerk, which he had since held. In 1908 he was graduated with honors from the Boston Y. M. C. A. Evening Law School, and was subsequently admitted to the Massachusetts bar.
He was widely known throughout the Commonwealth in the agricultural field and had a thorough grasp alike of agricultural and of legislative matters. His knowledge of law aided him materially in his work, and he originated the State crop report.
He was chairman of the Ward 21 Republican committee and a member of the D, G. K. Fraternity and the Boston City Club. He is survived by his wife, Annie Filena Dakin Legate, whom he married Oct 31, 1898; a daughter, Helen Newton Legate, and his father J. M. J. Legate of Charlemont.
Funeral services will be held at 2 tomorrow afternoon at his home, 11 Copeland place, Roxbury. Interment will be at Charlemont on Sunday afternoon.
