A History of the Descendants of David McKee, of Anahilt

Excerpt from A History of the Descendants of David McKee, of Anahilt: With a General Sketch of the Early McKees The history of the McKees had been for years a subject of study by the author of this book. His manuscript was nearly finished, and he had written to several persons that he hoped soon to have the volume published, when suddenly the Author of Life said of his earthly labor, "It is finished." From the time he divided the first honor of his class at Jefferson College in 1856, until his death of pneumonia, December 24th, 1891, all his life was spent in teaching. His continuous connection with the Pennsylvania State College for twenty-five years, in times of prosperity and adversity, bears silent testimony to his sterling qualities. His retiring disposition led him more than once to refuse the offered Presidency of the Pennsylvania State College, yet again and again he took the helm as Acting-President, safely steering the institution through the thickest darkness of its history until day began to break again and another pilot could be secured. He was an accomplished scholar in literature and the dead languages, a fine mathematician, thorough in everything, always willing and ready to help, steadfastly doing the right, and an earnest Christian worker, for several years before his death being an elder in the Presbyterian church.
