Mudge, B. F.
Professor B. F. Mudge – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 27, 1879 – Death of Prof. B. F. Mudge – Professor B. F. Mudge, the distinguished scientist and paleontologist, died suddenly at his home, Manhattan, Kansas, on Friday, the 21st inst. His death cast a gloom of sadness over his many friends here in this city where he is well and favorably known. As a man of science he held a high rank, not only in the west, but throughout the entire country. For several years he had been making collections during the spring and summer months for Professor Marsh, of Yale college, at times shipping several tons of specimens to that institution. During his superintendence of collecting fossils, he made several discoveries hitherto unknown to scientists. Not only was he a devoted scholar and student of natural science, but he was a man of a wide range of information upon all current topics. Genial, gentlemanly, kind and generous, a universal favorite of those that knew him, his life work is closed, thus passing away, he leaves a name and reputation that many may imitate. The academy of science of this city will, doubtless, take suitable and appropriate notice of his death at the next regular meeting. – Kansas City Times. – Professor Mudge was very well known throughout all of the western states, but especially in Missouri, Kansas and Colorado, and his death is a great loss to the scientific world.
