"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."

Note    N26-433         Back to Index        Back to Jesse Edmund Chute and Dr. Pearl Smith Chute, M.D.
Notes on Jesse Edmund Chute and Dr. Pearl Smith Chute, M.D.:

GMC: "Missionaries in India." Jesse Edmund may have also been named "Edmund Jesse" at birth; he was known as "Jesse", however. George Chute identified her as "Dr. Pearl Hill", but the surname is incorrect (Hill may have been her middle name but that has not been substantiated, and there is no indication of a later remarriage that may have altered her name to Hill at the time the Chute Supplement was written). Her correct name was "Dr. Pearl Smith, M.D.". She was the younger sister of Dr. Everett Smith, with whom she and Jesse worked, while in India.

"Doctors Everett Smith and Pearl Chute along with their sister, a nurse, established hospitals in Pithapuram and Akidu. This medical missionary family from the Niagara area arrived in India in the late nineteenth century. Chute opened the Star of Hope Hospital in Akidu, and her brother founded a hospital at Pithapuram. In 1896, Chute married and moved to Akidu. On the second night of her honeymoon, Chute heard a cry from her verandah asking for help. She responded to the cry and found a pregnant woman in labor. This event eventually led to the founding of medical missionary operations in the Akidu area and to the establishment of the Star of Hope Hospital in 1898."

"A brother and sister Everett and Pearl Smith, of Saint Catherines were getting ready to give themselves to the work in India. God's call had reached them, and they were coming. Think of it. Two young people ... in 1893, the brother, Dr. Everett Smith, came out as our pioneer doctor, and with him his wife, Mary Chamberlain Smith, who had prepared herself for the work by taking a nurse's training. In 1895 his sister, Dr. Pearl Smith, had graduated, and came out to marry Rev. Jesse Chute and go off pioneering with him on the great Akidu field, of which he had been put in charge, to relieve the Craigs, who were going on furlough.

It was a grand field for medical pioneering, as there was no other hospital nearer than forty miles, and from the first the people living in between kept her extremely busy. She had nowhere to put a patient, but all the same that first year she treated 1,642 people. We would earnestly commend these figures to the honest consideration of many otherwise perfectly good young medical graduates - doctors in our Canadian cities who after a long and expensive training have to sit in rented offices anxiously waiting for some patients to come their way.. Why not come to India or some other foreign field where they are waiting for you?

Quite frequently Mrs. Chute had to go by night to distant villages, in answer to S.O.S. calls, and was often put to it to properly care for a patient without hospital or equipment. But in 1898 that want was partly supplied. A small hospital, "The Star of Hope", was built and forthwith occupied."

Note    N26-437         Back to Index        Back to Reverend Edward Lane Chute and Julia Hawes Cleaveland Chute.

Notes on Reverend Edward Lane Chute and Julia Hawes Cleaveland Chute:

"Born in Maine, Nov. 27, 1853; having a desire to go into the ministry he entered college at Andover in 1877, and graduated July, 1880; married Julia, adopted daughter of Prof. John O. Cleveland, D.D. July 7, 1880; ordained at Saugus, July 2, 1880; was pastor there two years; Duxbury three years, and at Northborough since; Congregationalist."

From the worksheet submitted by great-grandson, A. Lionel Chute: "Edward was the youngest of six children born to Anne and Andrew. Edward was born in 1853 in Castine, Me. When a tiny baby the family moved to Ellsworth, Me., and when he was six years in 1859, the family moved to Newburyport, Mass. He attended Andover Theological Seminary for three years, graduating in June of 1880. He became Congregational minister, his first parish being in Saugus, Mass., then Duxbury, Northboro, Ware, Conway and finally Paxton. He married Julia Cleaveland Hawes in 1880 upon finishing theological school. The lovely Old South Church of Newburyport was the scene of the wedding. The young couple went at once to take up work at Saugus, Mass. Edward and Julia had 7 children. Edward died in 1939 aged 85 and was buried in the Chute Lot in Oakwood Cemetary, Newburyport, Mass."

From the diary of Gladys Chute Mears, daughter of Edward Lane Chute.

"Father's funeral at the old South Church where he and mother were married and used often to attend, was most appropriate. There were at least 50 or 60 people there. Audrey came up night before and Alfred that day. He is attending Harvard Summer School. Eloise went back to Worcester Hospital Monday. My impression of the funeral and burial were good, on the whole, however Dr. Macfarland whom Helen and Allan chose for the service was, I thought, too prosaic, tho he made a fine tribute to Father. But he seemed to me wholly lacking in poetry. I couldn't but think how much better Father himself was on such occasions. He expressed a real sympathy and his belief in immortality was so strong, he inspired belief in others. I was able to select some really appropriate music, including a few fine, appropriate old hymn tunes, and Allan sang one. It was a beautiful day and the burial in Oak Hill cemetary was simple and impressive. We missed you and Marion a lot but were glad that three of his children and three grandchildren could be there. So a simple but great life has ended. He was typically "Christian" and genuinely so. He lived for others if anyone can be said to. He certainly was the ideal pastor and I think we can honestly say that no children ever had a better father. I send you herewith the article that appeared in the New York Times the day after his death. There were notices in other New York and Boston and Worcester papers. Under separate cover I send you the current Mt. Lakes News. See good editorial by Dr. Macfarland." - From a letter by his Edward's son Charles to his sister Gladys.

"History of Conway (Massachusetts)1767-1917"
By The people of Conway
Rev. Charles Stanley Pease, A.M., Editor
Springfield Printing and Binding Company
Springfield, Massachusetts

In the summer of 1900 Mr. Frederick Pierce of Chicago, author of the Field and other genealogies, visited Conway and began the preparation of a history of the town. He secured a mass of material which he proposed to publish in two volumes. Lack of financial support delayed the publication until the author's death in 1903. His estate proceed to be insolvent and after unsuccessful attempts to sell the manuscript it was deposited with the town of Conway by permission of the Judge of Probate. At the annual town meeting in 1914 a committee consisting of Rev. E. L. Chute, H. W. Delabarre, C. F. Elmer, and C. L. Parsons was appointed to arrange for a celebration of the 150th anniversary of Conway in 1917. Mr. Billings died in 1915 and Rev. Charles S. Pease was elected to fill the vacancy. In 1916 Mr. Chute removed from town and Mr. Alvin C. Boice succeeded him on the committee. This committee was authorized by the town to publish a brief history of Conway based upon the Pierce manuscript and Rev. Charles S. Pease was appointed editor for that purpose.

Dear George

Just a few lines in regards to the record of the Chutes as you wanted, my father passed away two years ago and I will try and give you some of the information which you ask. This may not be too clear as you want for which you will have to excuse me and my mistakes, but if you want any more that I can help you with, feel free at any time to write me and if any time you are around this part of the country, come and visit us at any time.

Dear George,

In reply to your recent letter, I have gathered all the information I can and hope is is what you require. Sorry to be so long in answering but due to illness it was impossible to get it out sooner. I am wriing this for my husband, Hiram.

You asked about Chester Chute, he is David Chute's boy. He is 44 years of age and is married and has a family of five.

Livingston and Lev are the same person. He also has two girls, Lillian & Glenna, both married.

Most of the Chutes here earn their living by fishing.

If there is anything else you would like to know, I will be only too glad to help all I can.

Best wishes,

Mrs. Hiram Chute
