Obituary

Death of Hiram A. Huse.

Hiram A. Huse of Montpelier, state librarian, lawyer, and one of Vermont's foremost citizens, died at Williamstown about midnight September 23, of neuralgia of the heart. Mr. Huse was tired out from overwork and in company with Mrs. Huse, left Montpelier the day before his death for a brief outing. They stopped over night at Williamstown and while there he was seized with the fatal malady. Mr. Huse was born at Randolph, January 17, 1843. When two years old he went with his parents to Wisconsin, but returned to Vermont in 1860. He was graduated from Dartmouth in 1865, and from the Albany law school in 1867, being a fellow student with William McKinley at the latter institution. He was admitted to the Vermont bar in 1869 and began practice at Montpelier in 1872 and for the past ten years has been a member of the firm of Dillingham, Huse & Howland. He had served as state librarian since 1873, and represented Montpelier in the legislature in 1878. While at college he enlisted in Co. F, 12th Vt. Vols., and served until the regiment was mustered out. The funeral was held at Montpelier Friday.
