    MR. E. G. BAWDEN has entrusted Mr. Edgar Speyer “with a sum in cash and securities of about 100,000l. to be applied to purposes of charity and benevolence, and for the advancement of knowledge, especially in aid of human suffering.” After careful consideration, this sum has been apportioned for various good purposes in the form of capital to be vested in trustees, and to be known in each case as the “Bawden Fund.” The largest allotment is in aid of advanced university education and research, and for this purpose a gift of 16,000l. is made to complete the sum of 200,000l. required to bring about the incorporation of University College in the University of London.
