Uncle Bob

 

1909 Ole Miss Yearbook

In 1913 the University of Mississippi yearbook remembered the passing of Bob Brothers.

For thirty years a true and tried servant, a loyal instrument of our Alma Mater, --now, all those who have been near and dear to him the long gone to Another Land, he is left alone, dried leaf, barely clinging to the bough that has held him. In all probability his place will be vacant when the first bell rings next year. God make his sunset days mellow and sweet with the kindness of those whom, in humble wise, he has helped to serve. God make the final wrenching loose of the leaf from the bough gentle and without pain, and find the good old darky a place of rest after long, long toil.
