The Alpha Delta Sigma, journalistic fraternity of the University
of Kentucky, has heard with profound regret of the untimely death
of Herbert Dade Graham, on Long Island, N. Y., the morning of the

This young man was not only a member of thjs organization but
was instrumental in founding it at the University of Kentucky.
Throughout the years of his studentship and subsequently as an
alumnus, his loyalty was at all times unswerving and his leadership
in it was one of its outstanding marks of distinction.
As a student of this university, subsequently as alumnus, as
soldier, teacher, writer, civilian, his every net marked him as a man
of vision and purpose and lofty integrity.
Be it resolved, therefore, that in his passing we who are left are
called upon to surrender a comrade whose place cannot be filled and
Whose comradeship will be an abiding source of consolation throughout the years to come.
Resolved further that these resolutions be offered to the daily
papers, the Kentucky Kernl,'and that a copy be sent to the bereaved family.

Major Graham was president and
of the Huntover Press,
Inc., which publishes the New Era in
Lynbrook, the Enterprise at Oyster
Bay, and the North Hempstead Record. The editor was founding a
fourth newspaper at Port Washington, Long Island. He was closely
associated with Col. Floyd C. Gris- -
When the University of Kentucky granted to Herbert Dade
Graham a baccalaureate degree, the incident was, as the hundreds
of others, without particular comment except for the applause of his
fellow 'Students. Time passed and the boy who had met his school
day tasks with such determination faced the great question of his
country's entrance into the World War promptly and as he had done
before he returned to Kentucky from France wearing the emblems of
his well earned honors.- - His country ,Jike his fellow students on his
graduation day, applauded and he received a certificate of excellence,
a credit to himself, his family and his Alma Mater.
Herbert Graham had changed from the cadet to the soldier and
had gone through an eternity in those years abroad but his countenance was not darkened by the thoughts of his experiences; he had
not grown old under the demands of his duties; his step was as
light and his voice as convincing as in his boyhood days. He next
turned his face toward the duties of being an American citizen who
would justify again and again his existence.
Herbert Graham was a man. . His associates in every relationship have paid him this tribute. It was a privilege to know him.
He is dead at the age of 30 years but he did not die in his prime nor
yet in his youth for he had accomplished more in his short span than
it is given to many men to do in twice the number of his years.
For all the deeds of preparation, of friendship, of loyalty and of
Valor again he must be awarded a certificate of merit this time
inscribed, "to one who did all things well."
His body has been brought to his beloved Kentucky for whose
glory he labored and to which he returned frequently in life to mingle
again with his friends, of the happy past.
Let this message from the Alumni Assoeiation of the University of Kentucky express for him an undying appreciation.
