Science at the Universities

    Article metrics


    THE proceedings at the academic ceremonies held in Oxford on October 8 to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the University Museum, described in our issue of last week, and especially the address delivered by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Warren, President of Magdalen College, may well serve as an encouragement to the older men of science who have for many years been unwearying in their insistence that science should occupy a high place of honour among the branches of learning cultivated at the universities. The statement of progress at Oxford during the last fifty years, which the Vice-Chancellor and Dr. Vernon Harcourt presented, should act as an inspiration to the present distinguished staff of scientific teachers to whom the world is looking to develop in connection with their university a centre of scientific activity unsurpassed at any ancient or modern seat of learning.
