1876 Obituary 
We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. S. T. Davenport, well known as an active and energetic officer of the Society of Arts. Mr. Davenport's connexion with the Society had lasted for thirty-three years, and it was in great part to his unceasing and zealous efforts that the present prosperity of the institution is due. To very many of the members he was well known, and all who take an active interest in the Society of Arts will feel his loss severely.
Mr. Davenport's death was very sudden; it took placo on Friday, January, 1876, after an illness of only four days.
