HORATIO W. MYRICK, A. M.B.
HORATIO WHITTEMORE MYRICK was born at Marblehead, Massachusetts, August 29, 1865, and received his early education in the schools of Castine, Maine, and Concord, Massachusetts. After attending the High School of the latter town for one year, he went to work at carriage-building, but remained at this trade for only a year, when he moved to Waterbury, Connecticut, and there served a three years' apprenticeship in a machine-shop. He then worked for a year in the Springfield Armory, occupying his spare time in preparation for college.
In the Fall of 1887 he entered Lehigh University, where he remained for two years, and then came to Tufts, where he was graduated with the Class of '90, receiving the degree of A. M. B.
For three months after his graduation Mr. Myrick was employed by the Economic Electric Company of Brockton, Massachusetts, and then served in the experimental department of the Thompson-Houston Company at Lynn until the Spring of 1893, when he went to Springfield, where he was engaged during the Summer upon the designing of special machinery.
In the Fall of 1893 Mr. Myrick returned to Tufts as Instructor in Electricity and Mathematics, and the following year he was appointed Walker Special Instructor in Mathematics, which position he held until March, 1896, when he resigned.
