. Robert Hart Cary.
The Daily Missoulinn, of Missoula,
Mont., contained the following notice
ot the death of Robert Cnry..
Early Yesterday morning, Robert
Hnrt Cary, physical director at the
University of Montana, ended a long
fight against death and passed nwny,
quietly and without pain. The end wns
not unexpected. Since Wednesday
afternoon the physicians at St. Patrick's
hospital had been fighting grimly in nn
effort to prolong a breuth of life until
his parents, who are even now speeding
on their way from Nebraska, could
arrive nt his bedside. Mr. Cary was in
a comatose condition for 18 hours before
his death and oxygen was administered
nt frequent intervals in order to keep
him alive until his father and mother
could rench his bedside.
The disease proved too strong, however,
and at about G o'clock yesterday morn
ing the young mnn died. A f ow friends,
some of his associate at the university
and others who had known nnd loved
him for years were at the bedside when
death came.
Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Cary, the parents
of the dend man, will reach Missoula
early this morning and funeral arrange
ments will be completed upon their
arrival, Last night the body wns re
moved to the Sigma Chi fraternity
house, where it lies in stPte.
Keen grief was general yesterday
fyhen the news of Mr. Cnry's death be
came known. The young man was un
usually popular and could count as his
friend every man with whom he had
ever come in contact. The quickness
with which death came added to the
shock. Although Mr. Cary has been in
ill health for years, he had never
seemed near death. His cheerful de
meanor and his optimism bore no trace
of a sense of approaching death. Last
week he was taken to the hospital with
what seemed a slight case of tonsilitis.
Ho recovered, apparently, and on Sat
urday left the hospital and went out to
the university, where, he took charge of
the football squad in the absence of
Coach Philoon. On Monday he again
coached the football men nnd seemed in
good health. Ho became ill in the even
ing, though, and wns taken to the hos
pital again. There he sank quickly and
on Tuesday noon became unconscious.
His condition grew rapidly worse until
at last ill hope of recovery waB aban
doned and the physicians administered
oxygen in a vain attempt to keep the
spark of life until the parents, sum
moned from their home in North Platte,
Neb., could arrive in Missoula.
A combination of diseases caused the
death of Robert Cary. Ho had been
suffering for several years with din
betes. To combat this disease he
fasted and dieted carefully nnd the fact
that he never ate starchy foods seemed
to have caused a recation, which con
tributed to his death. A cold, which took
the form of tonsilitis, weakened him
and hastened the end.
Although his parents live in Ne
braska, Robert Cary's real home, dur
ing the last 10 years of his life, was
ultimately caused his death. After
finishing his college course (ho gradu
ated from the Sheffield scientific school
in 1909) he broke training too nlmiptly
and wrecked hisllgestive system.
After graduation ho returned to the
went." Ho went first to Spokane, where
hi- worked in the Old National bank
for a time.
After working in Spokane for awhile
Mr. Cary returned to Missoula nnd
forked ns a reporter for The Missoulinn
until 1910 he wns appointed uthletic
director at the University of Montana.
Ho served there with admirable succeess
turning out two championship football
teams and two championship track
teams. This is the position he held at
the time of his death.
When Robert Cnry first returned to
Missoula he was suffering with dia
betes and told friends at the time that
he did not expect to live more
than a few years. Yet he never com
plained nor gave up the fight. With
death staring him in the face nil the
time heysfjihls way, happy and un
flinching. He was the cleanest of men
m6rnlly and was n truo Christian in
beliefs and practice. He lived n life of
which ho could bo unashamed and went
to his death without a whimper, calmly
facing the end he expected at any
time. He va3 a man of whoso friend
ship one can be thoroughly proud. He
leaves behind him scores of friends
who will trensuro his memory and on
whom tho influence of his lifo will
always bo felt.

Robert Hart Cary was born in

parents moved to North Platte while
their son was young and it was there
that he spent his boyhood. He came
to Missoula in 1904 and entered the
