Rev. Dr. Arthur Crosby

M, b. circa 1847, d. 24 August 1915
     Rev. Dr. Arthur Crosby. Head Master of Mt. Tamalpais Military Academy.1 He was born circa 1847 in New York. He married Josephine La Tourette Burke on 14 May 1870 in the Reformed Church of Bound Brook, New Jersey.2 Rev. Dr. Arthur Crosby died on 24 August 1915 in Bolinas, California,
Death Ends Career of Rev. Dr. Crosby

Dr. Arthur Crosby, Headmaster of Mt. Tamalpais Military Academy, whose life for the past thirty years has been identified with the best interests of San Rafael died, suddenly Tuesday morning at Bolinas. He had been a sufferer from ill health for some time and under the care of a physician.

The news of the sad event caused sorrow here to every person who knew Dr. Crosby. But it was more poignant to those who had been intimate with him and knew him best.

Dr. Crosby was born in Brooklyn, New York, 68 years ago. He was graduated from Rutgers College, and a short time later began his career as a minister of the gospel. He came to San Rafael about 1885 to occupy the pulpit of t he Presbyterian church. In 1892 he resigned the pastorship to take charge of the Mt. Tamalpais Miliytary Academy, the institution of which he was the founder. Under his personal supervision the academy has attained to a rank that redounds to the honor of the founder. Dr. Crosby was a good man; he had his friends in every walk of life, and his place in this community will be hard to fill. The Crosby family was related to the Roosevelt and Harriman families. Before the death of E. H. Harriman, the great railroad builder many times had been a guest of Dr. Crosby. Dr. Crosby also was related to the eminent divine and publicist, Rev. Horace Crosby, deceased, of New York.

The funeral will be held this afternoon at 3:30 o’clock at the Presbyterian church. The service will be conducted by Rev. Lynn T. White, a close personal friend of Dr. Crosby.

Dr. Crosby was the husband of Mrs. Susanna Rodger Crosby, and the father of Mrs. Oscar T. Sewall, of Englewood, N.J; Louise and William Floyd Crosby of New York, and Harman Crosby of San Rafael. Marin Journal, August 26, 1915.3
