The Yearbook of the Universities of the Empire, 1939

    Article metrics


    IN its main outlines the Universities Yearbook retains the shape given to it twenty-five years ago by its original designers. Its principal features are still: a directory of the officers and members of the staff of each university, general information as to origin, organization, equipment, courses of study, etc., and reports of events of outstanding interest which occurred during the past academic year. The reports, by the way, are in some cases excessively meagre, even such an important university as Bombay, for example, reporting nothing more than the total number of full-time students and the number of degrees conferred.
