TRANSCRIPTION

“Noted men assist in the observance
Enthusiasm greets announcement of Americans’ success in art competition
Wonderful ovation for Englands’s ambassador
In spite of the disagreeable weather great crowd attends exercise

Marked, but not marred, by inclement weather, the Carnegie Institute Founder’s day celebration yesterday perpetuated the notable traditions of former years.

Learned addresses by Ambassador James Bryce, of England, and Director W. T. Hornaday, of the New York zoological park, an impassioned plea for the preservation of the Pittsburgh orchestra by Henry E. Krehbiel, musical critic of the New York “Tribune,” a beautiful prophecy for the future contained in Secretary S. H. Church’s report, and the announcement of prizes in the art exhibition were the features.

Remarkable enthusiasm was occasioned by President W. N. Frew’s announcement that Americans had won first and third places and had been awarded two of the three honorable mentions in the art competition. The canvases and painters who won the highest honors possible in America are:

Prize-winning pictures and painters
Medal of the first class (gold), carrying with it an award of $1,500, to Thomas W. Dewing, of the New York city, for his painting, entitled “The Necklace.”

Medal of the third class (bronze), carrying with it an award of $500, to Emil Carlsen, of New York city, for his painting entitled Surf.

Honorable mention to Frederic Clay Bartlett, of Chicago, for his painting entitled “Roman Afternoon”.

Honorable mention to Charles W. Hawthorne, of New York city, for his painting entitled “Venetian Girl.”

Honorable mention to Arthur Kampf…”
