This book is a written memorial for the late Frederick Tallmadge Towne, son of Henry R. Towne. Henry R. Towne was a successful mechanical engineer and businessman, and his son was following in his footsteps until his early death at the age of 34. Upon graduating from MIT, Frederick went to work for his father's business: Yale & Towne Manufacturing Company. This memorial book contains letters from friends, school faculty, and business acquaintances, all sharing their experiences with the young man and remembering his life. It also contains a short ancestry of the Towne family. In the front of the book is the card of Henry R. Towne, whom the book was gifted by, along with the letter "E" penciled in. This could be the lettered copy of the book, or a later mark.
