A trust fund furnishing four annual scholarships of $650 each has been established at Knox College, Galesburg, Ill, by Major General Milton J. Foreman in honor of his mother. Announcement of the fund was made yesterday in the conferring of Honorary LL.D degrees upon the general and three other Chicagoans, Chief Justice Thomas Taylor of the Superior court; Silas H. Strawn, attorney and Joseph E. Otis, banker, at the eighty-fifth annual commencement exercises of the college.

In awarding the degree to Maj. General Foreman, President Alvert Britt praised him as a “lawyer, public servant and soldier, who served his day well.”
