Reporter, City Editor, Managing Editor and Editor-in-Chief; forth years associated with the Lewiston Evening Journal. During this period his facile pen has been a strong factor in molding public opinion on all issues directly affecting the economic, political and cultural life of the state of Maine. The initials, A.G.S., today are recognized and beloved wherever the influence of New England's journalism is felt.

Among his innumerable friends is an appreciative group who believe that tribute to such a long and brilliant career should come during life. They have chosen this volume to bestow their tributes of esteem. Each in his own manner, combining as a whole a bouquet of delightful color and rare fragrance, they dedicate this volume to him of the gentle life, the kindly influence, whose words have touched the heart of humanity --- "A.G.S."
