Degrees conferred upon him.
The degree of D. D. was confeered on Dr. Hoge
by Hampden-Sidney College in June, 1854, the degrees of Ll. D. by Washington and Lee University at the commencement in June, 1886.
That commencement was a centennial celebration.
At the invitation of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Hoge
delivered an historical discourse.
There was a peculiar propriety in selecting him as the representative of the University
on that occasion, as his grandfather, Dr. Moses Hoge
, was a member of the first class on which degrees were conferred by that institution (successively known as Liberty Hall Academy, Washington Academy, Washington College, and Washington and Lee University), one hundred years before.
