      Horatio Nelson Chute & Lucretia Clappison Chute:
      "Listed in "Who's Who in America", edition unknown. [WEC]: "Received a good education, at the common schools; then entered Woodstock College, Ontario, 1860, and stayed two years; then farmed with his father till 1865 ; when he taught a district school. In 1866 he took charge of the schools in Aylmer. In 1869, was assistant professor of Latin at Woodstock; resigned in 1870 and entered the University of Michigan, from which he graduated in 1872; as B. A., and since that M. S. Since 1880, he has been a teacher and professor in the Physical Sciences, Ann Arbor, Mich., and has written and published several books."
      Chute Family Records: original revised edition of "High School Physics" Carhart and Chute, 1907.
      "When Mr. Chute retired from what was then called Ann Arbor High School in 1927, the staff and alumni were so sorry to lose him that they raised a bunch of money in his honor to start up the Horatio N. Chute award, which was to be giving to the outstanding male citizen of the graduating class. 75 years later, it is still the school's most prestigious honor, and I was very honored to win it this year. We have the biggest high school in the state, and through this award, Mr. Chute's name is still known to many students and parents."
