Abstract

"I understand that Mr. S. S. Wheeler is to be nominated as Chief of the Department of Electrical Engineering, which is to be established as an adjunct to the School of Mines. For a number of years past I have had an opportunity of observing Mr. Wheeler's work in connection with electrical engineering, and I believe him to be thoroughly competent to take charge of this new Department of your College. It, therefore, gives me great pleasure to recommend him very heartily for the position." Yours very truly, [signed] TAE
