time wrote court reports and special articles on legal subjects for The Tribune. He was admitted to the bar in 1879, and subsequently became associated in practice with Cornelius A. Runkle, who was for many years counsel for The Tribune. In connection with the defence of suits against that newspaper, he wrote, in 1884, a short work on the law of libel especially designed for the use of newspaper men. Since the death of Mr. Runkle in 1888, Mr. Sackett, as regular counsel for The Tribune, has defended with unusual success all libel suits brought against it. In April, 1888, he formed a law partnership with Charles Gibson Bennett, under name of Sackett & Bennett, which continued for a number of years. The present firm name is "Sackett, Chapman and Stevens." They do a large and important business, especially as attorneys for estates and corporations.

Mr. Sackett in addition to being employed as regular counsel for The Tribune writes that greatest and cleanest of American newspaper's editorials on legal and kindred subjects. He is descended from a long line of patriotic sires and seems to have inherited in no small degree the martial spirit of his paternal great grandfather, who entered the service of his country in the war of the Revolution as a volunteer before he was sixteen years of age, and of his grandfather, who served as captain in the war of 1812.
Mr. Sackett was a non-commissioned officer in Squadron A, New York's noted cavalry organization, when in 1896 he was appointed aid-de-camp with the rank of Colonel, on the staff of Governor Black. He is president of the Cornell University Club of New York; a trustee of Cornell University; a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association; of the University Club, Union League Club, Republican Club, Garden City and Opawamis Golf Club, St. Nicholas Society, St. George's Society, National Arts Club, Sons of the American Revolution, Hardware Club, Bar Association, Geographical Society, and other associations.

Mr. Sackett was married in 1886 to Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Titus, of Brooklyn, a grain merchant and one of the incorporators of the Produce Exchange. Mr. Sackett is by religious faith an Episcopalian, and senior warden of St. Thomas' Church, Mamaroneck, N. Y., where he has a handsome suburban residence.

5984.  ELIZA PRESTON KENYON, 1851-, daughter of Pardon W. and (3227) Janette Preston Kenyon, was married, Apr. 13, 1875, to the accomplished jurist, WALTER SETH LOGAN. The following is from the pen of his sister-in-law, (5981) Miss Amy C. Kenyon.

WALTER SETH LOGAN died in New York City on the 19th of July, 1906. He was the son of Seth Savage Logan and Abigail Serene Hollister, and was born April 15, 1847, at the Logan Homestead, Washington, Conn. His youth was spent on his father's farm, but in the intervals of his work there he prepared for college by going away to school. He graduated from Yale in 1870, from the Harvard Law School in 1871, and the Columbia Law School in 1872. In 1872 he entered the law offices of Charles O'Conor and James C. Carter, of New York, and soon won their approval by his work on the famous Jumel will case.

He became an able lawyer, practicing before the highest courts. He proved the rights of the Delaware Indians to their lands in one

Page 428

of the largest cases that ever came before the United States Court of Claims, and prevented the Standard Oil Company from acquiring them. At the time of his death he was Referee in the matter of the New York Building Loan Banking Company, one of the most important References ever given in New York. It was a trial of hundreds of independent law suits; and nearly two hundred lawyers, some of them the most famous in the city and the state, appeared before Mr. Logan in connection with it. He was appointed by Governor Higgins a Commissioner from the state of New York to both the National Conference on Uniform State Laws and to the Washington Congress on Uniform Divorce Laws.
His vigorous intellect and his wide sympathy carried him into other fields; into articles and addresses on our colonial history, on the history of Mexico, on various subjects; into the work of the American Historic and Scenic Preservation Society, of which he was president, and that of the National Arts' Society, of which he was a Governor, and into the membership of other and varied societies and clubs; into an active part in politics and the advocacy of important reforms. In behalf of these last, during his long citizenship in New York, he made many speeches and performed many labors. He was a working member of the New York Reform Club in the Cleveland days, and within a few years he has spoken against vast inheritances and oppressive trusts.

He endeavored to uplift and broaden the profession for which he had a life-long enthusiasm, and was one of the founders, first of the New York State Bar Association, and then of the American Bar Association, being chosen president of the former and vice-president of the latter. He went farther and advocated an International Bar Association.

The cause of international justice and peace was one of his deepest interests and he was a familiar figure at the Lake Mohonk conferences, where he argued in its behalf. He was a leading member of the celebrated committee of the New York State Bar Association to draw up the plan for an International Tribunal which proved one of the agencies that established the Hague Court of Arbitration.

His ardent Americanism impelled him to a strenuous part in many patriotic societies; he was president of the Empire State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, and, at another time, President General of the National Society. One of his oldest

Page 429

friends, a distinguished lawyer, says of him: "There was in him an intense patriotism that ever rejoiced in his country's past and ever prophesied glorious things for its future; but it was for his manysided humanity that we loved him best. I know of no other man who knew so well so many in every walk of life, who touched others from so many sides, or who cherished and enjoyed so many others for the best that was in them, as did Walter Seth Logan."
