From Sir ALFRED EWING, K.C.B., F.R.S., lately Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Edinburgh

    Article metrics


    I HAVE been asked to write a note about Lord Balfour's association with universities, perhaps because I served under him as Vice-Chancellor in one of them for thirteen years. Perhaps also because a previous service under him at the Admiralty, when he was First Lord during the War, had created a personal link which the subsequent intercourse maintained and strengthened. Meeting Lord Balfour from time to time in the serene yet vigorous evening of his life, one found in him continually more and more to admire and revere and love.
