Cornell College Register of Aumni, March 1916


In the following Alumni Directory the lists are alphabetical by states and cities first, and then by foreign countries and cities. Graduates in the regular college courses have the year of graduation immediately following the name. Graduates from the associated schools have the year numeral after the name of the school. At the time of issuing this register it was convenient to indicate only the lawyers, clergymen, and physicians. It was necessary to use abbreviations and other indicia of which the following need explanation: Ora., School of Oratory; Mus., Conservatory of Music; T., Temporary Address, as in the case of school teachers or students, the name being repeated under the name of the home town with the word "Home" after it; (?) means "the last known address." Information to make this list as correct as possible will be gladly received at the college office.

Important Transcription notes


Cornell College Bulletin - A Register of the Alumni by States, Cities and Towns March, 1916, Mount Vernon, Iowa
Published monthly by the College and entered at the Post Office at Mount Vernon, Iowa as second class mail matter.

~Alumni listed in the Iowa section and the Preface, were transcribed for The Iowa History Project by Shary Ferrall, September 2009

~Transcription Notes
1. Place names in [brackets] is the spelling of the town as given in the Iowa places reference used. The non-bracketed spelling is what is in the original directory.
2. The bulletin was rearranged from the original order (by town) to alphabetical by surname, for ease of browsing.
3. The abbreviations have been written out. In the origional, they appear as noted in the preface.
4. The transcriber added the county, which does not appear in the original directory. In some cases, a town is located in more than one county. All counties have been listed, and it is up to the researcher to determine which county the student lived in. Iowa place references used: IAGenWeb Iowa Towns
http://iagenweb.org/state/places/a.htm; Wikipedia www.wikipedia.com and RootsMagic place finder software.
5. Every effort has been made to produce an accurate transcription, but there likely are errors. The typeset on several pages was very faded, making some numbers and letters difficult to read. If the researcher finds the accuracy in doubt, they should consult a copy of the original directory.
