Oldest Beta Theta Pi member passing...

Charles Yardley Chittick
October 27, 1900 - July 18, 2008

Beta Theta Pi's oldest member, C. Yardley Chittick, MIT '22 passed away on Friday, July 18th. He was 107 years old.

According to the Concord Monitor:
He was the oldest living patent lawyer in the country. He feuded with Humphrey Bogart in prep school. He turned down a job offer from Thomas Edison. And he stayed sharp past the age of 100, sometimes hitting golf balls into a net.
He lived a long and admirable life. His presence at our Conventions will be dearly missed, as he was fond of singing the MIT fight song to the masses.
BQP est. 1839

"There is a destiny that makes us brothers, No one goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others, Comes back into our own."
~ Edwin Markham
