The dedication for this volume of the Calyx reads as follows: On January 19, 1907, was celebrated at Washington and Lee University the centennial of the birth of Lee. In testimony of the esteem in which his memory is held in all sections of the country the orator of the day was Charles Francis Adams, of Massachusetts, who delivered a beautiful and just tribute to the Southern hero. We have endeavored to add our mite to the occasion by dedicating this volume of the Calyx to the memory of Lee, and we wish to express our appreciation to the Lowell Bank Note Co., of Boston Mass., for their kindness in furnishing us with the portrait of Gen. Lee shown in the front of this volume. Miss Mary Lee, daughter of Gen. Lee, consideres it the best portrait of her father ever published. [paragraph] Robert Edward Lee -- essentially a Man of Character. Washington and Lee University -- essentially a School of Character, the character of Lee her greatest endowment.The available file is a PDF.
