Philip J. Lent 1899 MSNS graduation photo by Bailey of Mansfield

The community was shocked Tuesday evening when it was learned that Philip Lent had passed away during the afternoon at the Blossburg Hospital. Death was caused by septic poisoning. Mr. Lent received an injury to one of his feet several years ago, from which he never fully recovered. The foot had been lame for several days and Friday he came home from his school at Millheim, Pa., but not considering it anything serious. However, when his condition became worse, he was rushed to the hospital, where an operation was performed, but all efforts to save his live were unavailing.
Philip Lent was born near Mansfield January 20, 1882, the son of Frank and Celesta Smith Lent. August 10, 1907, he was married to Lillian Hayward of Mansfield. Four children were born to them, Leslie, Frances, Merrill and Mariam. Since his graduation from the Normal School in 1899 he has been a successful teacher. He taught for several years in Mount Jewett, later teaching in Mountoursville, Elkland and Cedarville, Pa., Highland and Southport, N.Y. and for the past four years has been principal of the schools of Moosic, Pa., resigning there this year to take the principal-ship of the schools of Millheim. He was a faithful member of the Methodist Church and Friendship Lodge, F. & A.M. In his school he was loved and respected by his pupils and his high Christian character and honesty won for him friends wherever he was known. Besides his widow and children he is survived by his parents, and one brother, Emerson Lent, of Mansfield. Funeral services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at the Methodist Church the Reverend Harold G. Stearns officiating; interment will be in Prospect Cemetery. (handwritten on article Sept. 27, 1927)
