DEATH OF THEODORE L. SEWALL.
One of the Prominent Educators of Indianapolis - His History.


The death of Mr. Theodore L Sewall, while not unanticipated, occurred rather suddenly yesterday morning at 6
o'clock at the family residence on North Pennsylvania street. For a number of years Mr. has known that his life was in danger from tuberculosis. Two years ago he spent the winter South and last winter and spring he was in New Mexico and Arizona, having given up all business in the hopes of recovery. He returned to Indianapolis late in the spring and was here for several weeks. A specialist came on from New York to see Mr. Sewall and advised his going to a sanitarium at Poughkeepsle. N.Y. This Mr. Sewall did, but found he was not benefited and returned home the last day of November. Soon after his return he became worse and went to bed, and his decline since that time has been gradual. Mr. Sewall was a gentle man, kind, courteous, a scholar of high attainment, and one whose character, honesty of purpose and unwavering fidelity stamped him as unusual.
Mr. Sewall came to Indianapolis in 1867 to make a visit. He was asked to start a preparatory school for boys, and in September of that year he opened the Boys' Classical School. Associated with him as an advisory board were some of the most influential men of the city, including Albert Fletcher, A.W. Hendricks, N.A. Hyde and others. Mr. Sewall also had a fine corps of instructors. The school was a success and the property at the northwest corner of Alabama and North streets was bought by Mr. Sewall for the school. In 1880 Mr. Sewall married Mrs. May Wright Thompson, one of the leading teachers in the Indianapolis High School. In 1882 they opened the Girls' Classical School, which was a success from the start Both schools were carried on, Mr. Bewail having charts of the one for boys and Mrs. Sewall the one for girls. This was continued until 1889, when the boys' school was sold and both Mr. and Mrs. Sewall devoted themselves to the girls' school. Mr. Sewall taught languages and other branches and on him devolved the financial management for which he was pre-eminently qualified. He was a good business man and the success of the school was his great ambition. Mr. Sewall was a man of fine literary tastes and one of the most prominent members of the Indianapolis Literary (formerly the Gentlemen's Club). He was president the season of 1890-1891, and was its secretary several years. All his work in the club was valuable and thoroughly prepared. One, in particular, which created great interest was a history of the club with sketches of the prominent members, which is described as "an interesting characterisation of individuals." Another paper was a review of "Marie Bashkirtseff," of fine literary quality. He was a fine critic and discriminating; a modest man, so much so that only those who knew him well realized his real worth. He was one of the organizers of the Contemporary Club, and served as its secretary four years. He was also a member of the Art Association. In faith Mr. Sewall was a Unitarian. He was identified with the First Presbyterian Church. His parents have been telegraphed, and other relatives also. The time for the funeral, which will be conducted by Rev. M.L. Haines and Rev. N.A. Hyde, will be announced later.
Thomas Lovett Sewall was born at Massillon, O., Sept., 20, 1853. His father and mother were of old Massachusetts families. He was a descendant of Chief Justice Sewall, Rev. Joseph Sewall and the second Chief Justice Samuel
Sewall. Mr. Sewall attended school at Wilmington, Del. and entered Harvard College in 1870 and was graduated in 1874, the seventh Sewall in the direct line to receive a degree from Harvard. Mr. Sewall continued for two years, taking a post graduate course and receiving the degree of LL.B. He has entertained many noted people, and among his guests was President Eliot, of Harvard. His father and mother and brother Frederick will arrive to-day from Chicago, and his brother, E.D. Sewall, will come tomorrow from Milwaukee, and a sister from Connecticut. The funeral will probably be held Thursday.
The Indianapolis Literary Club, at its meeting last night, took informal action on the death of Mr. Sewall. A suitable memorial will be prepared. The club will be represented at the funeral. The Indianapolis Journal, 24 December, 1895.6

Captain Sewell first came to the Territory of New Mexico in 1892, and at that time bought six claims in Last Chance Gulch. Previous to this he had been at Cripple Creek. After remaining here a short time he returned to that place, and it was not until 1897 that he came again to Elizabethtown and took up his residence here. At present he is superintending the construction of a tunnel known as the Isabella B., for Homer C. Chapin, of Chicago, who owns claims or options on all land the tunnel will tap. For eighteen months the work has been under way and the tunnel now extends a thousand feet into the mountain. It has crossed numerous rich veins of ore and the prospects are bright for a rich mine when the railroad is built in the valley.
His own claims that he purchased in 1892 Captain Sewell still owns and contemplates developing as soon as railroad facilities and a mill are brought to the locality. Pacific States Publishing Co. History of New Mexico : its resources and people (Volume 2), p. 958.
