For Christian Science

Baltimore Herald

At the meeting of the board of trustees of the Johns Hopkins University yesterday afternoon the resignation of Hermann S. Hering, M. E., associate in electrical engineering, was accepted. Mr. Hering will give up college work, and will devote himself entirely to the cause of Christian Science.

Mr. Hering is the son of a prominent Philadelphia physician, and is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, where he took his degree of bachelor of science in 1885, and mechanical engineer in 1886. He was instructor in the Philadelphia Manual Training School in 1886–87. and was professor in mechanics and applied electricity from 1887 to 1891. He has been prominent in the electrical department at Johns Hopkins for a number of years. and has been exceedingly popular with all the students who came in contact with him. He was active in building up the department of electricity. and organized and carried through many schemes of improvement. One of the most pleasing features of the electrical course was the annual excursion which he conducted to New York and other Nothern cities for the purpose of investigating the electrical plants in operation there.
