Col., associate editor of The Interior, joint founder with the late Professor David Swing of The Alliance, a member of the publishing firm of Rhodes & McClure, editor of a score of good books, dying at the age of sixty-three, he left behind him the record of an active and beneficent life.

Mr. McClure did not live to finish this book. The material he had been gathering for years came into my hands with the request that it be prepared for publication with such additions as seemed desirable. In loyalty to the memory of my friend--for he was such to me in my student days at Evanston--I have followed as closely as possible the plan he had adopted in the choice of subjects and arrangement of contents.
