To the hundreds of students and faculty who .knew Major Archie W. French during his long tenure at the University, these words best describe the man whose death on January 18 brought stillness to the campus. To those who had known him well, the news at first seemed unbelievable. Few had known that the Marine veterdn of two World Wars had for years carried on a fight against death that few could have maintained.

It is to him that we dedicated the 1951 HOUSTONIAN. THE 1951 HOUSTONIAN STAFF
