Students His Friends.
Brights's Disease Causes Death at His Home in State Island.
Harry F. Towle, principal of Curtis High School in the Borough of Richmond, died today at his home, 180 Hamilton avenue, New Brighton, Staten Island. He had been hill for some time with Bright's disease. He was in the sixty first year of his age.
Mr. Towle had long been connected with the Department of Education of New York City and is best known by Brooklynites for his many years of service in the Boys High School, Marcy avenue and Madison street, where he was an instructor for more than twenty years.
In the Brooklyn school he was undoubtedly the best like instructor of the faculty. His influence on the students was apparent on all sides and when he discontinued his connection with the high school in 1906, although the student body, as well as his fellow instructors, were glad to see his advance in the department, his loss was felt by all.
He knew how to deal with the average youth, and the manner in which he mingled with the students was the secret of his success. He commanded discipline at all times, and although he was in a sence one of the "boys" he did not at any time gain the disrespect of a single student.
While at Boys High School he was head of the Latin Department, and although the others who made up the corps of instructors brought forth excellent results, Mr. Towle had a way of his own which resulted in his promoting larger classed each term than did the others who instructed in latin.
Mr. Towle was a graduate of Dartmouth, and his alma mater always held a warm place in his heart. Many students followed the footsteps of Mr. Towle, entering Dartmouth at his suggestion upon their graduation from B.H.S. Mr. Towle was for a time president of the New York branch of the alumni. He was also for many years a member f the executive committee of the National Dartmouth Alumni. He was graduated from the university in 1876.
Mr. Towle was born in Epsom, New Hampshire. He attended the district school of his home town, and prepared for college at Pennacook [Pembroke ?[] Academy. After his graduation from Dartmouth he taught in Hollis and Nashua high schools in his native State, and was principal of the Whitman Massachusetts High School before going to Yonkers, where he was principal of a grammar school.
In 1883 Mr. Towle came to the Central High School, which was at that time located on Court street, and he taught mathematics there for a period of five years. When the Boys High School was created, he was appointed head of the Latin department, and also acted in the capacity of assistant principal of the institution.
It was while Mr. Towle and Oliver D. Clark were both connected with the Boys High School that a principal was needed at Curtis High School. The Board of Education appointed Mr. Clark. When Mr. Clark was taken ill his place was filled by William A. Crane, and instructor of the Curtis High School. Upon the death of Mr. Clark, the man who had filled his place was in the field for the pricnipalship, but the Board of Superintendents unanimously elected Mr. Towle.
His regime in Curtis since 1906 had been a success and he had brought forth the same results for which he was most preeminent at the Boys High School and other institutions with which he was affiliated.
Mr. Towle had been a member of Plymouth Church of this borough for more than twenty one years. He made his home of Montague street up to the time of his appointment as the head of the Staten Island institution. He was a member of the Psi Upsilon Fraternity and had been president of the Dartmouth College Society of New York. He was president of the latin Club, a member of the Teachers Association, member of the Schoolmasters Club and a member of Orion Lodfe, F. and A.M. He was also a member of the Sons of the Revolution.
He is survived by a widow, Annie M. and a daughter Florence Wilson Towle. Funeral services will be held a his late home Thursday afternoon at 2"20 o'clock and the burial will be in Whitman, N.J.
