    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 31, 1885 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Death of Professor Dodge - The following is taken from the Oakland (California) Tribune, dated December 11, and refers to a gentleman who formerly lived in Pulaski, a brother of Mr. C. C. Dodge, of this town. "Prof. William C. Dodge, principal of the Oakland Normal School, died this morning at three o'clock, of pneumonia. He had been ailing for about six weeks, but his malady did not take a dangerous trend until a day or two ago. Prof. Dodge was 70 years of age, and was born in Robin, Jefferson County, New York. He came to this coast in 1850, and engaged in mining operations in Tuolumne County. He was afterwards principal of the public school at Sonora, Tuolumne County, for several years, and many men now prominent in this state, obtained the rudiments of their education under his direction. He came to Oakland twenty years ago and taught at Brayton School for a long time. He afterwards taught at San Lorenzo, and was the principal of the Peralta School in the Temescal District. He leaves a wife to mourn his loss. A son, Frank Dodge, died in 1869, at 29 years of age. The leading a very quiet life, Mr. Dodge was widely known in universally esteemed by all who knew him. Of a most sympathetic disposition, his ear was ever ready to listen to sorrows and afflictions of his fellows, and to the extent of his means his hand ever followed the dictates of his heart in relieving the wants of others.
