Excerpt from The Life and Public Services of Andrew S. DraperMr President, Members of the New York State Teachers Association, Ladies and Gentlemen:For more than a quarter of a century, Dr Andrew S. Draper was a fellow-worker with the men and women engaged in public education in the State of New York. He was deeply concerned in the diversified interests represented by its various educational organizations. He was the acknowledged leader of the great educational forces of our State. He was able to bring the power and influence of such forces to the united support of all measures inaugurated to develop and strengthen the educational system of the State; to bring more complete and serviceable educational opportunities within the reach of all the people; and to raise to a higher plane the moral and intellectual attainments and the social and industrial conditions of all our citizens. Doctor Draper undoubtedly appeared a greater number of times, before this association and the other educational associations of the State, addressing the members of such organizations upon more important educational questions, giving them and the State the benefit of his knowledge and experience and exerting a greater influence upon the purposes and the scope of a great State system of public education, than any other man within his time. It is therefore appropriate that this body, so thoroughly representative of all the branches of educational endeavor in the Empire State, should set apart an hour at this meeting to give expression to its feelings of esteem and appreciation of the fine qualities, the noble spirit and the elevating influence of Doctor Draper's character; to acknowledge the gratitude which the educational workers of this State and the State itself owe to him for the distinguished services which he rendered to public education in this country; and to give expression also to our genuine sorrow and grief for the great loss which the State and the nation sustained in his death.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
