"History of Rochester and Monroe County New York From the Earliest Historic Times to the Beginning of 1907" by William F. PECK, The Pioneer Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1908.

Professor Eugene C. COLBY, who since 1905 has been state supervisor of drawing and manual training, while for twenty years previous he was connected with the Mechanics' Institute of Rochester as principal and one of the leading teachers, has gained a reputation in connection with instruction in industrial art that extends far beyond the borders of the state. He was born in Denmark, Maine, on the 13th of October, 1846, his parents being Samuel C. and Harriet (DAY) COLBY. His preliminary education was acquired in the district schools and he also studied in the village of Denmark, at Hiram and in the academies at Freiburg, North Bridgeton and Norway, eagerly availing himself of the opportunities for educational advancement. In early manhood he taught school in Hiram, Sebago and Naples, Maine, and soon after attaining his majority went to Cambridgeport, Massachusetts, where he was employed in a wood working shop and later in a piano factory.

About the time industrial drawing schools were established he attended such institutions in Cambridge and in Boston, Massachusetts, and in 1874 he entered the Massachusetts Normal Art School in Boston. While pursuing his course there he also taught drawing in the evening school at Cambridge and when three years had passed he accepted a position as teacher and supervisor of drawing in the schools of Lawrence, Massachusetts, where he remained for eight years. Later he became principal of the Mechanics' Institute of Rochester, New York, which was established in that year - 1885 - for the purpose of teaching art and industrial education. He was principal of the department of industrial and fine arts from the beginning until the department was divided, when he became the superintendent of industrial arts. The department annually has upwards of one thousand pupils under the charge of thirty teachers. After twenty years' connection with the school he resigned his position, to the deep regret of all of the faculty, the pupils and those interested in the school. One of the local papers spoke of him as a tireless worker in behalf of the Mechanics' Institute and continued : "He is the one who may be said to have brought the Mechanics' Institute through years of struggle and adversity to the period when it became easy sailing for all who identified themselves with the noble work. He was one who did the practical work of organizing the classes and teaching at a time when all looked discouraging and before there was any silver lining to the clouds of difficulty which hovered around the institute. It was a battle royal Mr. COLBY fought in the early days and he not only performed the duties of principal and teacher but materially assisted Captain LOMB and his loyal associates in securing patrons and funds to carry on the work. Many people have wondered how it is that in all reports during past years of the working of the institute the name of its most valuable officer has been so seldom seen. No doubt this is due to the innate modesty of Professor COLBY, who recoils from publicity and prefers to keep in the background. Public opinion, however, which seldom errs, is fully posted in regard to the inestimable services which have been rendered to the Mechanics' Institute by him and there is a strong feeling among the citizens that he should be recognized and his future in the institute rendered impregnable. Professor COLBY possesses all the characteristics necessary in the oversight of multifarious studies, being cool and dispassionate in his temperament, patient and courteous in his attitude and endowed with peculiar gifts for imparting instruction in the various training departments of the institute. He is, withal, a man of unspotted character, a Christian gentleman and a true friend. The whole interior arrangements of the Eastman building were planned by Mr. COLBY and indeed it may be truly said that had it not been for his heroic and faithful devotion and incessant toil since 1885 the Mechanics' Institute would never have arrived at that point of perfection as to merit the confidence and magnificent generosity of George EASTMAN."

When twenty years had passed Professor COLBY resigned his position in connection with the institute to accept the proferred one - that came to him unsolicited - of state supervisor of drawing and manual training. On the occasion of the commencement exercises which marked the close of his twenty years' connection with the school Mr. ROSS said:. "For twenty years Professor COLBY has worked with us honestly, earnestly and with untiring industry, and with a singleness of purpose and loyalty to the best interests of our institute that have only been equaled by the work of Captain LOMB. The name of Professor COLBY will always be associated with the long years of our severest struggle for existence, and it is greatly to his honor that no suggestion of leaving us ever came until our institute had become an assured success. It is with deep regret on the part of the board of directors that he is leaving us, and he leaves with the respect and friendship of every member of the board and our best wishes for his success in the position he has taken. The institute owes him a debt of gratitude, and his fidelity to its interests will never be surpassed"

During Professor COLBY'S second year in Rochester the board of education engaged him to establish and supervise the teaching of drawing in the public schools, which work he did for two years in addition to his regular institute work and brought that department of the schools to a high degree of proficiency. He has always been interested in the progress of art education and has been a prominent figure in many educational movements, being closely identified with various teachers' associations.. He was the first president of the New York State Art Teachers' Association and was one of the organizers and the first president of the Rochester Teachers' Association. He has also held other offices in state and national educational associations, is a life member of the New York State Teachers' Association and was its superintendent of exhibits for several years. Few men have had his breadth of experience in their special work and few, if any, have had their work more thoroughly endorsed by the educational authorities. In his present position as state supervisor of drawing and manual training he makes out the . examination questions in drawing and has charge of the marking and rating of papers in Albany. He also instructs teachers in drawing at the teachers' institute and is now inspector of the divisions of the department. He also does much institute work and inspects schools in their work in drawing and manual training.

On the 18th of July, 1878, Professor COLBY was married to Miss Anna C. HOLMES, a daughter of Judge Alfred HOLMES, of Lockport, New York. He built a fine residence at No. 39 Rutger street, where he and his family are now living. Unto them have been born two daughters and two sons : Alice Harriet; Frances Maria and Alfred Holmes, both now deceased; and Eugene Holmes.

Professor COLBY has been president of the Rochester Art Club and is a member of the Rochester Society of Artists, while at the present writing, in 1907, he is president of the art department of the National Educational Association. He has gained national distinction in connection with his chosen field of labor, and there is today no man in all the country whose opinions are regarded more as authority upon the subject of instruction in industrial art. Fraternally he is connected with the Masons, and his interest in the moral development of the community is shown in his membership in the Plymouth Congregational church, in which he is now serving as a member of the board of trustees.
