The Board of Governors is the supreme governing body, and comprises all contributors above 5/., and a large number of honorary members, with various qualifications, resident in various parts of the West of England. The Council is the managing body, consisting of sixteen, one-half of whom are elected by the governors (in the first instance by the contributors of money, about 20,000/. having been already promised in Bristol alone), and the other half are nominated by the Vice-Chancellors of the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and London, by the two contributing Oxford Colleges, by the Lord-President of the Privy Council, by the faculty of the old-established Bristol Medical School, and by the Principal and professors of the College.
