Charles Warren Bulfinch
Obit in The Dartmouth, S2 or 52, 13 October 1899
(sic - title says Charles, text says Chester)

Although it was pretty generally known among his classmates that Chester W Bulfinch was suffering from consumption, yet his death on Tuesday, Sept 12, (1899) came as a complete surprise and great shock to tall. Early last April he was obliged to give up his newspaper work on account of failing heath, and being examined by Dr. Bowditch, the great specialist on consumption, he was refused admission to the Consumptives Home at Rutland MA, on the ground that his case was incurable. For a time he was treated in Boston, but his physician said that he acted like a man worn out, both in body and in mind, and that he lacked strength to fight the disease. He was recommended to try the open air treatment, and early in May he went to his mother's home in Warwick, MA where he spent most of his time out of doors lying on a spring cot-bed.
The Saturday before he died his mother carried him over to Orange to spend a few days with his aunt. All day Sunday, Monday and Tuesday he was out of doors, although he suffered considerably from pleurisy the last day and his condition was such that a physician was called in to attend him. The end came very easily at twenty minutes past eleven in the evening.
Chester W Bulfinch was born in Malone, NY, Nov 25, 1875, but when quite young removed with his parents to Woburn MA. After the death of his father, in 1885, he and his mother went to Athol to live, and it was here that he prepared for college. After his graduation in June, 1898, Bulfinch entered the office of the Burlington News, Burlington VT. Soon afterward he went to Rutland as a reporter for the Daily News. Here his ability was immediately recognized by the management of the paper and he was soon promoted to a sub-editorship, a position which he held until his resignation last April. The proprietor of the Daily News said that he never had a young man enter his office with such a promising future before him.
Those who were in college with Bulfinch will remember him as a very earnest student, deeply interested in newspaper work and one who made a careful study of all of the leading questions of the hour. Of a quiet and unassuming disposition he was great favorite with all those with whom he was associated.
