     Willard Eugene Harn was born on 9 June 1868 at Alberton, Howard Co., Maryland.2 He was the son of Edwin Washington Harn and Leoline Edith Uesline. Willard Eugene Harn married Nannie M. Bopst, daughter of John Bopst and Louisa D. (?), on 1 January 1891. Willard Eugene Harn died on 16 December 1945 at Baltimore City, Maryland, at age 77.
     HARN Sheets, FHL film 1036595, # has name of William E. Harn. TERCENTENARY HISTORY OF MARYLAND, vol III, 1925, page 734-735.

Following article from TERCENTENARY HISTORY OF MARYLAND, Volume II, published in 1925, by the S.J. Clarke Publishing Company, page 253-254.
William Eugene Harn was born at Alberton, Howard county, Maryland, June 9, 1868. He is a descendant on the paternal side from Irish and Scotch stock and from an agricultural loving line. His father was the late Edwin Washington Harn, and his grandfather was Ephraim Harn, both of whom were large men and of fine physique. The father was a farmer in his younger days but he learned the weaver's trade and moved from his birthplace, Triadelphia, to Alberton, where he became superintendent of the weaving room of the duck mills, founded by James S. Gary and still operated by the Gary family. He retired from this business several years before his death and settled on his farm at Hoods Mill, Carroll county and from there he came to Baltimore, where he died. Mr. Harn s mother who is still living, Miss Leoline Edith Evans of Virginia. His grandmother was in her maidenhood Miss Elizabeth Gosnell, of the Gosnell family of Carroll county, a sturdy farming people still thickly entrenched around Woodbine and Taylorsville.
At the time Willard Eugene Harn was born the educational advantages in the country districts were meager. He attended the Public school at Alberton and on Diamond Ridge. The highest grade was the seventh. When at the age of eighteen Mr. Harn finished this grade, he went with John Cowan to learn the trade of carpenter. As a journeyman he was at the Washington navy yard, after which he was associated with Mr. Cowan as journeyman for nineteen years during the greater part of which period he filled the position of superintendent.
In 1904 Mr. Harn launched out for himself and established the firm of Willard E. Harn & Company, with office at No. 213 North Calvert street. Two of his first jobs were St. David's Episcopal church at Roland Park and the Sexton Company's warehouse at Nos. 5, 7 and 9 Gay street. St. David's church is the first monolithic concrete building to be erected in Maryland. In 1915 he built his present office, shop and storage places at No. 2314 Oak street, occupying them the same year. As the business grew Mr. Harn associated with him in the firm his son, John Edwin Harn, who had graduated from Cornell University as a civil engineer. He is secretary of the firm. William Bowersox, superintendent for the firm, was also associated in membership in the business. His office is that of the general superintendent.
The firm as it is now constituted has specialized in cottage construction. Some of the finest cottages around Baltimore have been built by the Willard E. Harn Company. Among these are the residences of James C. Fenhagen, John E. Semmes, Jr., Morris Whitridge, J. Ross Myers, Dr. Thomas R. Brown (Litter Louna), Mrs. Ida L. Dohme, John H. Barret, Dr. Gordon Wilson, William H. Bryan, and F.A. Adams (formerly owned by Charles H. Dickey). The firm however does not confine itself to cottage work, but enters into the building of other structures. The Rivoli theater, one of the most beautiful, convenient, and artistic theaters in the south, was erected by this firm. All of the work done by the Willard E. Harn Company is executed with skillful workmanship and in strict honesty with owner and architect. In order to be able to operate his business along efficient and intelligent lines Mr. Harn found that he would have to supplement the education he had received in the county schools. He accordingly pursued the study of mathematics, drawing, and engineering under private tutors until he thoroughly mastered the branches of learning necessary to complete knowledge in the erection of buildings. Mr. Harn's son is regarded as an authority in these details, but the father has not relinquished one job or title of his interest.
In his private life Mr. Harn has been more of a home man than a public man. In 1891 he was married to Miss Nannie M. Bopst, daughter of the late John and Louisa D. Bopst of Maryland, though for many years they resided in Martinsburg. Miss Bopst's grandparents were born in Germany. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Harn are: John Edwin, who married Miss Elsie Norrington of Baltimore, and they have two children: Miss Edith Muriel Harn, who was educated at the Eastern high school, Goucher College, and Johns Hopkins University. From the latter institute she received her Doctor's degree in Modern Languages. She is now professor of Romance Languages in Agnes Scott College of Decatur, Georgia; and Lillian Pauline Harn, wife of James C. Miller, who was graduated from St. John's College of Annapolis and from the law department of the University of Maryland, and he is now practicing before the Baltimore bar.
Mr. Harn is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and of the Masonic fraternity. He was knighted in Washington (D.C.) Commandery before he was twenty-two years of age. He is a past eminent commander of Maryland Commandery, a Noble of the Mystic Shrine, and belongs to the Charcoal Club.
He attends the Lutheran church, but for all his associates he is broad-minded, independent in politics, and not without the characteristics that betoken a substantial citizen and a faithful follower in the pathway of honest government. One of his friends, speaking of him, said: "He never shows the slightest desire to be spectacular. He is more of the type of faithful friend, honest competitor, and man of unflinching integrity. He has a big heart, a keen but sympathetic mind, and a disposition to make the pathway of life happy, sincere, and helpful to others."

If it hadn't been for the stubbornness of the young lady who later became his wife, Elmer Harn, who retired two weeks ago after thirty-seven years as a teacher at Polytechnic Institute, might have spent his life in a newspaper city room instead of behind a professor flat-top desk. For so long as he worked at being a newspaperman, the future Mrs. Harn wouldn't have him. "I followed after that girl for nine years," he explains, as if recalling a losing battle, "but she said she would never marry a newspaperman, who changed night into day." So, as any good Irishman would, Mr. Harn "pitched the job for the girl"' and turned to teaching. And he has never regretted the choice. He considers it the wisest thing he ever did. In that, most of the thousands of students he taught at Polytechnic in the past three-and-a-half decades will agree, regardless of the merits of the musical and literary criticisms which made up most of his newspaper writings.

An Unpredictable Manner
They remember him, more and more fondly as he comes within the focus of a more mature perspective, as a wild-eyed, emotional and highly eccentric Irishman, who was just as often in trouble with the school administration as they were themselves. His manner of teaching was informal and unpredictable. He would sit upon his desk, or in a window, or stand with one foot on a chair. In short, his manners were largely those of the newsroom, for whose sloppy freedom he has always borne a great fondness. He never placed much stock in textbooks, or the teacher who instructed by them. And, happily for his pupils, he never felt unduly constrained to follow even his own assignment sheet. Instead of the beauties of Hamlet, as announced, his students might receive a dissertation upon the mating habits of pigeons (some having coincidentally appeared in the classroom window) with only the very pith end marrow of the Hamlet problem telescoped into the period's final two minutes.

Widely Informed
He impressed his students, and does even yet. as being one of those rare persons whose talk deserves the adjective "brilliant," even on the most banal of subjects. In his mouth, the art of fishing and the choice and construction of flies, for example (which he for one would never content to brand as banal), become almost an epic. As a teacher, he had a keen quiet sense of humor and an immense and sudden Irish temper. "Be quiet." he'd address his class preparatory to a lecture. "I have a few pearls to cast." He lost his temper, when he lost it. in a most wonderful fashion. He rarely, if ever, allowed himself the luxury of profanity and he even more rarely the release of hurling blackboard erasers. Bui to his students it sometimes seemed as if he were capable of lifting and throwing his whole desk, let alone an eraser. Even before John Kieran became a sort of human test-your-strength device by which to measure prodigy of whatever age, Mr. Harn impressed his students as enormously and discouragingly informed on all manner of things. His memory, especially for poetry, was and is prodigious. Not only can he quote scene after scene from Shakespeare, for example, but he can quote the changes in the scenes from edition to edition. " He had a preference for red ties, which time has sobered to black, and like every good Irishman, loved a fight.

Nothing Like A Fight
He got into the thick of one at the first City-Poly game after he joined the Polytechnic faculty in 1904. Ostensibly, he, an instructor, was supposed to separate the struggling students. Instead, he encouraged the Poly youths himself, and capitalized upon the confusion to knock off with his cane the hat from the head of the Polytechnic vice-principal, for whom he had small use, then or now. Later that afternoon, he was called before the principal, who was then Willian R. King, "Mr. Harn," said the principal, "your action this afternoon was highly reprehensible, highly reprehensible but it was the best thing you've ever done!" "Yes, I always enjoyed those City-Poly fights," Mr. Harn smiles in retrospect, "and would yet, if they hadn't moved them out to the Stadium, where I can't get to 'em." As a matter of fact, Mr. Harn- has had to fight for much of the success which has been his in life. He was born, the son of a cotton-mill worker, in Alberton, in Howard county, on April 7, 1870. April 7 that year happened to fall on Good Friday and he had to wait sixty-nine years before his birthday fell on Good Friday again. As a youth Mr. Harn did mill work, whitewashing and other odd jobs to work his way toward college. His mother, who was an Evans, traced her ancestry back to William Bradford, the second Governor of Plymouth colony, and of this genealogical blue ribbon Mr. Harn has always been very proud.

Got Book About Protestants
He entered Rock Hill College, a parochial school at Ellicott City, in 1S89. Although he had no high school education, having studied independently with preachers, and knew no foreign languages, he graduated in three years, with French, Latin and Greek. He was awarded a book, "The History of the Protestant Revolution," "for diligence" by his professor in Latin, and the faculty medal for "mental philosophy." This alone of all the medals and charms a scholar collects over a lifetime he still wears. The others, he says laughingly, he pawned. His first teaching position, was at a little elementary school at Roxbury Hills, where he was a pedagogical jack-of-all-trades. Former Governor Warfield was the first man to teach at Roxbury Mills and Mr. Harn the last. Mr. Harn says Warfield jokingly accused him of destroying the school. For four years he was principal of the graded schools at Ellicott City and then he went back to Rock Hill College as an instructor for a year. There he taught Greek and mathematics. Then came the nightmare that was five years of newspaper vagabondage, "I hit the high spots of life," Mr. Harn says of these turbulent years in what is probably a masterpiece of understandment. His marriage to Miss Pauline Mayfield for that was the stubborn young lady's name was a turning point in his life. He started teaching again at Calvert Hall, where once again he instructed in Greek and mathematics ... and Latin, which, he says, he always hated. After two years, he went to Pittsburgh to work in the office of a telephone company, was taken ill and returned to Baltimore to become a member of the secret service of the United Railways. The purpose of this job, Mr. Harn explains, "was to stop leakage on the line: the good men were rewarded, the bad one fired." "But I didn't like the work," he says, "I had to work every other Sunday." Finally, in 1904 he landed in Polytechnic to stay, But-now the secret can be told he first applied for a position at City and got one at Poly only because there were no vacancies at City. At Poly he taught English from the. very beginning. He had started to teach English at Calvert Hall when the regular English teacher died. Because he had done newspaper work the good fathers thought he should know something about English . . . and, by almost unpredicted coincidences, he did. Mrs. Harn died fourteen years ago, putting an end to a marriage of high and rare devotion. At about the same time, Mr. Harn finally gave up contributing to newspapers, which he had done, at space rates, sporadically ever since the great renunciation.

Now Lives Alone
Now he lives alone in a converted apartment in Forest Park. The front room is both his living room and his office. There are bookcases on either side of the folding doors at its rear and old pistols and swords hang from its walls. He is ??? to greet a caller in smoking jacket and a high, stiff collar, a label of his generation he has never seen fit to discard. The first thing he normally does is proffer a drink: Rye, Scotch, Bourbon anything you desire, he explains, except rum and gin. Then he excuses himself from joining you -because he is to have wine with his dinner instead. He hasn't changed much in appearance through the years. He is tall, spare and modelly erect. He still brushes his hair, now white, in a pompadour straight back from his forehead. His mind is still lightning quick. And he is still unreservedly outspoken and quick to flare at the mention of persons or things for which he has no respect. Ask him if he knows professor Such-and-such, a contemporary of whom you are fond and whom you therefore think will make a nice conversational bond, and, likely as not, he'll answer, "Certainly I know him; he's a damn fool.". But unless you know Mr. Harn, you can never be sure whether he intends such a pronouncement as a term of opprobrium or endearment. Such emphatic exaggerations are all a part of the ornate, climactic language with which he clothes the simplest thoughts.

Last To See Billy Alive
For example, it was typical that he should battle through the years with his first principal at Polytechnic, King, and yet at the end value him as one of his dearest friends. And it was equally typical that he should describe their last moment together, just before King's death, as he did. "I was the last to see Billy King alive," he recalled, "I took him a bottle of whisky, and he kissed me on the cheek." For companions, Mr. Harn has a housekeeper and a tomcat named Kingfish. The first time you visit him, he poses Kingfish on his hind legs on a dining room chair and, manipulating the cat's forelegs in forensic gestures, requests that he give his speech for the guest. The speech, actually delivered by Mr. Harn after the manner of a poor amateur ventriloquist, turns out invariably to be some manner of diatribe against the President. Too much spending, says Mr. Harn, returning to his natural voice, too much spending. He thinks there are a lot of things wrong with public schools, but that is another story. He is writing" what he calls a report on his "steward-ship" in the schools for Dr. Weglein's eyes alone.

Great Stakes With Fishing
If the doctor sees fit to disclose its contents, well and good; if not, Mr. Harn will keep his peace as best he can. Fishing is his consuming hobby and greatest pride. Twenty rods, all made by himself, hang on his dining-room wall; 600 flies, all tied by his hands, are filed in his desk drawers. He's very proud of his flies, which he gives to other fishermen. "Aren't they pretty?" He asks, fingering the colorful strands. "They've all got names, too: there's a Mickey Finn, there's Tiger; there's Black Ghost. Yessir, I've made a lot of friends with these flies."

Follows The Fish
Mr. Harn says he fishes wherever there are fish to be had. During the summer months he fishes mostly near Syracuse, where both his son and daughter have homes and where he knows twenty-six good fishing streams. He maintains a room in both his son's house and his daughter's house in Syracuse." "Then1 when one of them does something I don't like," he laughs, "I can go over and stay with the other until I cool off." He has two lessers hobbies. Poetry is one and being a "joiner" is the other. Now, for the first time in a busy life, he has more time than he knows what to do with. But he has a tentative schedule mapped out. "I'll loaf six months," he says, "then I'll review my Greek and mathematics, and then I'll write my obituary and go to sleep.". But everyone knows Elmer Harn will find a great deal more time to fish than that.
