"The lives of great men all remind us,
W e can make our lives sublime.
And departing leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time"
—Henry W. Longfellow
IT is most fitting that this, the second volume of Asodecoan on its first
public appearance since 1918, be dedicated to our highly respected friend
and teacher, Dr. Percy T. Dashwood. whose friendly interest and valued
teachings for the past twenty years have done so much for the young aspirants
Dr. Dashwood has been endowed by nature with those great character¬
istics which go to make up the perfect man. His high code of honor, ster
ling character and professional ability have won for him the esteem, respect
and warm friendship of both the student body and faculty.
His retiring and unselfish nature made it necessary for us to bring
strong pressure to bear ere he would permit his picture to grace this book.
He is proud of his profession and his profession is proud of him. for
his accomplishments are many and his ideals high. The monument to his
ability as a dentist is the lingual bar plate, which he perfected some years
We, who write here, are proud and justly so of the good fortune that
has been ours in having been associated with this man to whom we owe so
large a debt of gratitude, and from our hearts we wish for him in the years
to come all the joy and happiness that life can give.
