DR. M. S. Sommer was a gentleman of the first water. One could meet him at leisure or at work and find him always the same - kindly, wholehearted, congenial, and cheerful; ready and willing to enliven the conversation with a good quotation from classical literature, whether English, German, or Latin; or eager to tell a good story to illustrate a point he was trying to make.
He was a good friend, loyal and reliable, not easily ruffled by outward circumstances. If conditions of life were not too favorable, he never complained.
