His early years were spent in Memphis attending Pentacost -Garrison School. His high school years were spent at The Choate School in Wallingford, Ct .

He is a Certified Investment Counselor as well. Mr. Howard served in the Armed Services, posted in Japan.

Recurring themes in Mr. Howard's generous philanthropy were his sentimental attachment to Memphis and its history, his dedication to superior education for those that might not be able to afford it. He was devoted to "give opportunity to people who otherwise would not have it" and took great joy in honoring others through his gifts. In recognition of his ongoing gifts to the Memphis Garden Club Mr Howard was named an honorary member of the Garden Club of America, which he found both humbling and amusing as it is an all women's organization.

HUME, DAVID - 1. New Hanover  
HUME--David. The InterSchool Orchestras of New York deeply mourns the passing of our best friend, founding president and constant support, the brilliant educator David Hume. In 1970, when budget cuts and other priorities were eliminating music from the education of New York City school children, David was one of the few important leaders to take action on the crisis that was taking place in arts education. David's pioneering contributions with ISO have had a lasting effect on three generations of children by uncovering talent, developing careers, creating devotion to fine music, and renewing musical activity in the schools. None of this would have been possible were it not for his vision. Thank you David for the joy and success you have brought into so many lives. Board of InterSchool Orchestras of New York

HUME, DAVID - 1. New Hanover  
HUME--David D. Headmaster Emeritus of Saint David's School, dies at 87. The Headmaster, Trustees, Faculty, Staff, Boys, Alumni, and Parents of Saint David's School, New York City, mourn the passing of a dear friend, Headmaster from 1953 to 1990, Headmaster Emeritus and Honorary Trustee thereafter. Mr. Hume is perhaps the most revered and influential figure in the history of our school. He came to Saint David's when he was just twenty-five years old and the school just one. For the next thirty-seven years, this brilliant, principled man, with a wonderfully whimsical sense of humor and powerful intellect, set the direction and tone of the school. He helped create the school's most honored traditions that sustain it to this day. In so many ways, Saint David's is today the school that David Hume helped it to become. During his headship, 1,200 young men graduated. David was a graduate of Canterbury School, Yale University, and Columbia University. During his tenure at Saint David's, Mr. Hume served as President of the New York State Association of Independent Schools, the Country Day School Headmasters Association, Interschool Orchestras of New York, the Elementary School Heads Association, St. Thomas More Chapel (Yale University), and the Guild of Independent Schools of New York City; Vice-President of the Independent Schools Multi-Media Center; Director of the National Association of Independent Schools; Trustee of the Professional Children's School of New York City, Marymount School of New York, and Nightingale-Bamford School, New York City. He was a member of the Elizabethan Club, Yale University. He was an avid reader, writer, painter, sailor, boat builder and patron of the arts. Mr. Hume's tremendous dedication to the School for more than six decades is appreciated and celebrated. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Catherine, his sons, Christopher, '68, Adam, '70, Benjamin, '71, and Noah, '75, his daughters, Charity, '72, Amity, '74, and his sister, Rozanne Edmondson, and her sons, Timothy, '73 and Nicholas, '75 and their families at this time. Details regarding a memorial mass will be forthcoming.
