Death of H. C. Campbell
The following obituary of Hugh C. Campbell is taken from the Atchison County Mall, published at Rockford, MO.
Hugh C. Campbell, born at Putney, Vt., Nov. 18, 1841, died Oct. 18, 1912, at the Soldiers Home at Leavenworth, Kansas. His illness was of a continuous nature, and his death was not unexpected by his family and friends.
Mr. Campbell received a collegiate education in his native state, and after serving in the Union Army throughout the Civil War, he engaged in farming. Later he engaged in teaching, beginning in Brookfield, MO., from there he came to Rockport, where he was superintendent of the Rockport school for a period of 10 consecutive years, a record that has not been equalled by anyone in charge of the Rockport school. As a educator he was second to none, as shown by results, for from his school went forth some of the best equipped graduates in the history of the school. We may say he was a model of his profession, the main feature of his administration here being perfect control of his school, and the confidence placed in him by all. He was a master of the school, also a dignified gentleman of high ideals, who had the respect by all. With sincere sorrow his friends here learned of his failing health, beginning with a paralytic shock a few years ago. From Rockford Prof. Campbell went to Kansas where he continued teaching for several years.
He leaves a wife; two daughters, Mrs. Lucy Campbell of Chicago, and Mrs. A. Stiles of Rockport - and one son, Allan of Neodesha, Kansas.
This follows a note of the funeral, and of the burial under Masonic Honors. The bearers were selected from graduates of Prof. Campbell's school.
