He gave its growth constant and thoughtful study and the result brought him fame and honor. Throughout the eastern United States his products appear in some of the finest and largest semi-public buildings. His name appeared in the front ranks of State, national, and international ceramic associations. Gregory, a year before death called him, made a trip to Europe, partially to study further possible uses and forms for his excellent and attractive terra cotta products.
He was dreaming ahead, as usual, and being of such calibre as Kipling writes: As the editorial in his home paper so well put it:. He was practical in his applications. He always stood his ground. He was either for or against. He spent no time grumbling about everything to emptiness but would devote his entire energies to attempt to change conditions where they could legally and effectively be altered. He was full of energy. A man of enthusiasm. Such a man could not, and would not want to, except a multiplicity of civic, and social zeal and enthusiasm in national campaigns, while at home he stood by the men whose qualities he believed would most benefit the community.
He desired no public office himself, but gave without stint of his effort and substance to promote civic welfare loyally, and progress nationally. He was an unostentatious leader, but he wielded because of his personally, a powerful influence. Fraternally, he was widely popular and of distinctive prominence. He was a member of long standing in Masonic orders, a Sir Knight, with the thirty-second degree Scottish Rite, also a member of the Mystic Shrine and of Corning's Consistory.
Fraternalism was to him a matter of constant inspiration, as he in such associations proved to others. In religion a staunch Presbyterian, his spirit marched in time with better morals and high ideals and on all such issues he stood firm as supporter and abettor. His efforts for all good causes were used with the remarkable energy and vim that showed in all his activities.
Much credit is due Mr. Many of the wise policies now in use he propounded and advocated when they were but empirical ventures. State conventions found him nearly always one of them, a booster for good roads, a perspicuous judge in matters of taxation and highway systems. His affiliations were numerous in societies, clubs and associations and his posts of honor many.

Gregory was president of the National Brick Manufactuers' Association in , chairman of the membership committee of the New York State Automobile Association; first president of the State Ceramic Society in ; member of the National Terra cotta Society; member of the American Ceramic society; member of First Presbyterian Church; member of Corning Rotary; first vice-president Corning Automobile Association at the time of his death, and also its first vice-president, being a charter member; member of Painted Post Lodge, No.
Business affairs held him steadily, but what avocations he allowed himself outside of social and fraternal contacts, were found in gold, or in water sports. His death inspired an editorial far above the average eulogy, a tribute that only a man of exceptional endowment could evoke. It deserves permanency and is well worth quoting from. The editorial reads in part:. His forebears were pioneers wrestling with the rugged lands. His own nature was pioneer but his activities were transferred from the primitive to the complex and with fundamentals he too, wrestled as a pioneer, going through trial and adversity, great business responsibility; in industry and community and political life he dealt primarily with conditions, studied those conditions and sought to better and alter them.
Any student of Morris E. Gregory's active and busy life will find its theatre and activity in pioneer work in fundamentals in a complex field……. Enough of a practical optimist to be an ideal pessimist, his qualities of leadership among movements and men lay in his urge to do something. Few men found more self-expression than he or met with less resistance in essentials. The news column today carry the sad message to his friends that this soldier of industry, community crusader has fallen in his prime.
They tell us in detail of his many connections and activities. Summed up they chronicle the story of a man who believed thoroughly in himself and his community, and who was not afraid to put such belief to the test. And, most important, he was not an individualist. He could and did do his work through groups.
Gregory married, October 29, , Annie C. Creveling, daughter of Samuel W. Morris Creveling, active in his father's business. George Erwin, associated with his father in terra cotta manufacture.
