Within This Site Your Eye May Trace|
The Well Known Smile On Friendship's Face;
Here May Your Wondering Eyes Behold,
The Friends Of Youth, The Lov'd Of Old;
And As You Gaze With Tearful Eye,
Sweet Mem'ries Of The Years Gone By
Will Come Again With Magic Power,
To Charm The Evening's Pensive Power.
|Some In This Site Have Passed The Bourne|
From When No Travelers Return;
Some Through The World Yet Doomed To Roam,
As Pilgrims From Their Native Home
Are Here By Nature's Power Enshrined,
As Lov'd Memorials To The Mind--
Till All Shall Reach That Happy Shore,
Where Friends And Kindred Part No More.

PROCTOR (Lat. procurator, agent), in a general sense,
one who is commissioned to manage the business of another. In a particular
sense, a proctor is one who is commissioned to transact the business of his
principal in the ecclesiastical or admiralty courts. Hе discharges functions
similar to those of attorneys and solicitors in other courts. In England,
the proctor can be admitted to practice only after a clerkship of seven
years with a senior proctor of at least five years' standing, and he must
produce a certificate of considerable proficiency in classical education.
Before the abolition of the probate and matrimonial courts of doctors'
commons, the proctors were the only persons allowed to practise in them.
(See Doctors' Commons.) Proctors are known in the United States only as
officers of the courts of admiralty, whose duties, authority, and
responsibilities correspond to those of attorneys at law.—The name proctor
is also given in England, and in some American colleges, to university
officers whose duty is to guard morals and order.|
