With the present issue of the Calendar, a return has been 
made to the former and original practice of issuing the work in 
two Parts. 

The First Part contains a sketch of the History and Con- 
stitution of the University, with Chronological Lists of Officials 
and Honours and Honorary Graduates and Prizemen down 
to 1889 ; also details of Bursary and Scholarship Foundations, 
etc., etc. This constitutes the permanent or historical portion. 

The Second Part, constituting the practical and current 
portion, includes the Calendar proper, for the annus academicus 
next ensuing ; also full details regarding the curricula of study 
and examinations for Degrees in the various Faculties ; 
specimens of Examination Papers; Prize and Merit Lists of 
the year, and generally such information and announcements 
as are subject to variation from year to year. This Part will 
be published annually, while Part I. is intended to stand 
without alteration for a series of years. 

A Supplement to the Calendar, published yearly, contains 
a List of the Books added to the University Library during 
the year, and the Kegister, up to date, of members of the 
General Council,

Cl^c Unifaersitg* 

The University of Aberdeen derives its origin and endow- 
ments from two separate, and for a long time independent, 
foundations. The one of these was the University founded by 
William Elphinstone, Bishop of Aberdeen, under the authority 
of a Papal Bull, obtained in 1494-5, at the instance of King James 
IV. ; within which University was afterwards founded, in 1505, 
the College of St. Mary, subsequently called King's College. 
From this Koyal Patronage, it was held to stand in a specially 
close relation to the Sovereign, and is accordingly styled in Acts 
of Scots Parliament — * Our Sovereine Lord His College and 
University \ The other foundation was that of Marischal College, 
founded in 1593, by George Keith, fifth Earl Marischal, under a 
Charter ratified by Act of the Scots Parliament. 

The first of these Institutions was constituted originally as 
a *Studium Generale et Universitas Studii generalis, "as well 
in Theology, in Civil and Canon Law, as in Medicine and in 
the Liberal Arts, as also in any other lawful Faculty," with all 
rights and privileges as to Degrees exercised by the * Universities 
of Paris and Bologna'. Various confirmations by Parliament 
followed, but among these, the most specific is that of the Parlia- 
ment of 1670 {Fasti Ab, J p. 169-70), an Act of which Parliament 
recites and sanctions all the privileges conferred as to Degrees, 
not only equal to those enjoyed by Paris and Bologna, but also 

Digitized by 



* any other University whatsomever '. The power hereby conferred 
on, and the authorisation thus given to the Degrees of the 
University of Aberdeen, both for European and national validity, 
are at once explicit and complete, more conciplete, indeed, as to 
title than those belonging to any other single University in Scot- 
land. This completeness of title has been acknowledged by the 
Commission of 1858, who in their Report, on p. 222, in order to 
establish the validity of certain degrees in another Scottish Uni- 
versity, make appeal to the Charter of the University of Aberdeen, 
as constituted in 149S, as furnishing the conclusive argument by 
analogy upon which reliance is ultimately placed. 

The two Colleges or Academic Corporations above named, both 
of them exercising University rights and privileges, co-existed 
for a long period as independent and rival institutions, and 
although various attempts were made, and notably in 1641, to 
form them into one Academic body, these attempts were un- 
successful. The Caroline University of 1641 can hardly be said 
to have had a real existence, and it was not until the year 1858, 
on the passing of the first Universities' Act, that they became 
united and incorporated into one university. The history of 
each of these bodies falls, therefore, to be given separately, until 
within a comparatively recent period.

By the Bull of |Erection of the University in U9S, the Bishop of 
Aberdeen was constituted Chancellor; and a Rector is men- 
tioned, although the mode of election to that office is not pre- 
scribed. After the abolition of Episcopacy, the Chancellor, who 
was henceforth a layman, was chosen for life by the Principal 
and Masters ; the Rector sometimes taking part in the election. 

The Officials of the College of St. Mary (in Nativitate\ more 
commonly known as " The King's College," founded by Bishop 
Elphinstone, in 3505, with a view to the work of instruction in 
the newly erected University, were the Principal, who was also 
Doctor or Professor of Theology ; a Doctor or Professor in each 
of the Faculties of Canon Law, Civil Law, and Medicine ; a Sub- 
Principal or Chief-Regent, a Humanist, and three out of six 
Masters of Arts, Students of Theology on the Foundation, selected 
by the Principal and Sub-Principal to act with the latter as 
Regents in Arts. The three Regencies, which at first were held 
by the incumbents only for the time (six years) necessary to 
enable them to graduate in Theology, soon came to be regarded 
as permanent appointments. According to the mode then general 
in Academic teaching, each Regent (the Sub-Principal included) 
conducted the studies of a class in all the branches of the 
Curriculum in Arts during the three and a half years from its 
entrance to its laureation. 

Towards the end of the Sixteenth Century, the assent of the 
Scots Parliament was given to a Nova Fundatio confining the 
teachers each to a separate department, as at present. It is not 
clear how far this alteration ever came at that period into active 

Digitized by 



Operation. The older system of continuous instruction under a 
Regent was undoubtedly again in force in 1641, when the King's 
College of Old Aberdeen was United, by ROyal Charter, with the 
more recently-founded Marischal College of Aberdeen, under the 
title of King Charles' University. The Act of Parliament ratify- 
ing this union of the Colleges fell, by its date, under the General 
Act Rescissory, passed after the Restoration, and so became a 
dead letter. 

After the foundation, in 1620, of a distinct Professorship of 
Divinity, the Principal of the King's College, although still the 
head of the Theological Faculty, ceased to give stated prelections 
in Theology. By the Universities Act of 1858, the oflBce of 
Principal in the united University was made tenable by Laymen, 
^,nd the Principal, as such, has ceased,, in terms of that Act, " to 
be or be deemed a Professor of Divinity ". 

The office of the Canonist, which had become merely titular 
after the Reformation, ceased to exist in the 17th century. The 
Civilist became, in 1860, Professor of Law in the University of 

The duties of the Doctor or Professor of Medicine (Mediciner), 
originally intended to embrace intruction in all the branches of 
Medical Education, were in 1839 restricted to the teaching of 
Chemistry. In its original form, this Chair constitutes the most 
ancient foundation for Instruction in Medicine in Great Britain. 

In 1700, in accordance with an Act of a Royal Commission for 
the Visitation of the Scottish Universities, the special duty and 
designation of Professor of Greek were assigned to one of the 
Regents, and a century later the functions and title of Professors 
of Moral Philosophy, of Natural Philosophy, and of Mathematics, 
were respectively allotted to the other three Regents. One of the 
four Regent-Professors was styled Sub-Principal until 1860, when 
the office was abolished. 

The Professorship of Oriental Languages was founded in 1673, 

In 1703, and again in 1732, the College appointed persons to be 
Professors of Mathematics, but the attempt to establish the office 
as a separate chair failed, through want of endowment. In 1800, 
one of the Regents was appointed Professor in this department.

Although the Foundation Charter of 1693 contemplates the 
existence of a Chancellor, it prescribes no mode of election, and 
the successors of the Founder — the Earls Marischal — under the 
title of " Patrons of the Earl Marischal's College " — seem to have 
been regarded as Chancellors until their forfeiture in 1715. In 
1727, a petition was presented to George II., representing the 
difficulties experienced from the want of a Chancellor, and pray- 
ing His Majesty to appoint the Duke of Cumberland- to the 
Office. The result of the petition is unknown. The first recorded 
appointment of a Chancellor is that of the Earl of Bute in 1761, 
" as the office is become vacant by the death of his Grace the 
Duke of Argyll ". From that time the Chancellor was elected for 
life by the Senatus Academicus. 

Besides a Eector to be chosen annually by the " suppositi,'^ 
divided into four Nations, the Charter established an official 
entitled the Dean of Faculty (to be elected at the same time by 
the Chancellor, Kector, Principal, Kegents, and Senior Minister 
of Aberdeen), whose duty was to preside at Examinations, and at 
the granting of Degrees. No formal record of these elections is 
extant of earlier date than 1664. 

The officials charged with the ordinary work of tuition were 
the Principal and Three Kegents, to whom a fourth was added in 
1620, when the Principalshipt was temporarily conjoined with 
the Divinity Chair. It was the intention of the Founder that 

* The Duke of Ciim'berland, who in 1727 was only six years of age, became, in 
1746, Chancellor of St. Andrews. 

+ The Principalship in Marischal College was in two instances, in the 17th 
century, held by Doctors of Medicine.

each Regent should devote himself to the teaching of some 
special branch or branches ; and this system seems to have 
prevailed until the short-lived union with King's College in 1641, 
after which date each Regent began to carry his students through 
all the four years of the curriculum. After 1717 one of the 
Regents was, in tardy compliance with the Act of Visitation of 
1700, set apart to the duties of Professor of Greek, and in 1753, 
the other Regencies became Professorships of Moral Philosophy, 
of Natural Philosophy, and of Civil and Natural History re- 

To the original offices the following Professorships were added 
— Mathematics in 1613,* Divinity in 1625, Medicine in 1700, 
Oriental Languages in 1732, Chemistry in 1793, Church History 
in 1833, Humanity, Anatomy, and Surgery in 1839, and that of 
Medical Logic and Medical Jurisprudence in 1857.

(since 1858). 

On the 2nd of August, 1858, the Royal assent was given to an 
Act of Parliament (21 and 22 Victoria, cap. 83), intituled "an 
Act to make provision for the better government and discipline 
of the Universities of Scotland, and improving and regulating the 
course of study therein ; and for the Union of the Two Univer- 
sities and Colleges of Aberdeen ". 

By Ordinance No. 7 of the Commissioners appointed by and for 
the purposes of the aforesaid Act, approved by Her Majesty by 
Order in Council, dated 30th June, 1860, the two foundations of 
the " University and King's College of Aberdeen " and " Marischal 
College and University of Aberdeen " were, from and after the 
15th September, 1860, united and incorporated into One Univer- 
sity and College, under the style and title of the " University 
OF Aberdeen ". 

The University as thus constituted is a corporate body, con- 
sisting of a Chancellor, Rector, Principal, Professors, Registered 
Graduates and Alumni, and Matriculated Students. Its govern- 
ment is administered by the University Court, the Senatus 
Academicus, and the General Council. It possesses all the 
powers, privileges, and property of the two Universities and 
Colleges above-mentioned, and, by virtue of the Universities Act 
(Sect. I.), it takes rank among the Universities of Scotland as 
from the date of the foundation of the University of 1494-5. 

By the Universities (Scotland) Act, 1889, (52 and 53 Victoria, 
cap. 55), which, so far as is consistent with the tenor thereof, is to 
be read and construed along with the afore-mentioned Act of 
1858, important changes have been made in the administration 
of the government of the University, and Commissioners were 
appointed wuth extensive powers for the regulation of the 
arrangements of this as well as the other Scottish Universities. 
The University Court is much enlarged, and its powers are 
greatly extended. Power was also given to the Commissioners 

Digitized by VjOOQIC 


to grant a constitution to the Students' Representative Council ; 
and a new body, the Scottish Universities* Committee of the 
Privy Council, which stands in a common relation to all the 
Scottish Universities, has been instituted. 


The University Buildings, formerly of King's College, are 
situated in College Bounds, Old Aberdeen, where the Classes in 
the Faculties of Arts (as defined on p. 56) and of Divinity are con- 
ducted. The Buildings contain also the Chapel, General Library, 
Observatory, and Archaeological Museum. 

Of these buildings, the most notable, architecturally, are the 
Chapel and its crowned Tower, which have been preserved re- 
markably intact through various vicissitudes, and together form 
a group of Academic buildings unique in Scotland. The Tower is 
flanked by strong buttresses, and terminates in a double crown, 
surmounted by ball and cross. On two of these buttresses are 
coats of arms of the Eoyal Patron, James IV. (dated 3504), and 
his son, Alexander, Archbishop of St. Andrews, who perished, yet 
a youth, with his father, at Flodden. Near the West Door is an 
Inscription, still legible, defining the day and year (2nd April, 
1500) when the .masons (latomi) began to build, under the 
auspices of James IV., who is styled, among other honours, 
** invictissimus," — internal evidence that the inscription is older 
than 1513, the date of the disaster of Flodden. On a smaller 
buttress near, we have the heraldic insignia of his Queen, 
Margaret Tudor, through whom the Stuarts came to inherit the 
English throne. The Chapel, which consists of a long nave 
without pillars or side aisles, and terminates in a triangular 
apse, was originally built of freestone, but is now enclosed on 
the South Side in a casing of granite. Into this granite casing 
outside have been inserted various interesting coats of arms, 
including those of James IV., Bishop William Elphinstone, 
Bishop Gavin Dunbar, Bishop William Stewart, Hector Boece 
(these four l3eing recognised by their respective initials — W. E., 
G. D., W. S., H. B.), and among the subsequent and more recent 
benefactors, a prominent place is assigned to the Simpson and the 
Fraser Arms, in honour of Doctors Simpson and Eraser, whose 
names are associated with very important and valuable Founda- 

In the interior of the Chapel the most interesting object is the 
elaborate and richly carved Oak Screen which is without any 
parallel example in Scotland, and is believed to have few rivals 
m Great Britain. There is every reason to believe that it is 
contemporary with the Founder, who is said by his biographer to 

Digitized by 



have given " caelaturse, sellae, subsellia," t.c., " carvings, stalls, 
and sub-stalls,** for the service of the Chapel. Other notable 
features are the tomb of the Founder, Bishop Elphinstone ; the 
double Pulpit, one Renaissance in style, bearing the name of 
Patrick Forbes of Corse, the other Gothic (originally from the 
Cathedral), containing the arms of Bishop William Stewart (with 
initials V. 8.), who was one of the last of the Roman Catholic 
Bishops of Aberdeen before the Reformation. (For an account of 
the Stained Glass Windows, see later in the Calendar,) 

The large square Tower in the N.E. corner of the Quadrangle is 
known as Cromwell's Tower, having been built about 1658 under 
the direction of General Monk and his officers, who bore rule for 
Cromwell at that period in the North. With the exception of the 
small Ivy Tower, all the other buildings, not previously referred 
to, are modern, belonging entirely to the present century. 

The University Buildings, formerly of Marischal College, are 
situated in Broad Street, Aberdeen, where the Classes in the 
Faculties of Science (except those of Mathematics and Natural 
Philosophy), Law, and Medicine are conducted. The Buildings 
contain also various Museums and the portion of the Library that 
belongs to the departments of Natural Science, Law, and Medicine. 

Of the original College Buildings in the New Town, hardly any 
fragment remains, except the famous Stone with the Inscrip- 
tion : " Thay haif said ; quhat say thay ; lat thame say," which is 
still preserved in the vestibule of the existing building. The 
foundation stone of the present building was laid by the Chan- 
cellor, the then Duke of Richmond, in 1837, the edifice being 
from the design of Archibald Simpson, who has left not a few 
kindred monuments of his architectural taste and skill to adorn 
his native city. 

The site was originally occupied by the conventual buildings 
of the Grey Friars or Franciscan Monastery, which accounts for 
the proximity of the Greyfriars Church within what is now the 
College Quadrangle. 

A scheme of University Extension is now in progress, which, 
when developed, will open up Marischal College to Broad Street, 
and otherwise greatly benefit its surroundings. A portion of the 
new buildings, including the Mitchell Hall and Tower, University 
Union Rooms and Anatomical Department, was inaugurated in 
October, 1895; the new North Wing, accommodating the De- 
partments of Botany, Surgery, Pathology and Chemistry, was 
completed and thrown open at the commencement of the Winter 
Session of 1896; and the North Tower, containing Law Class- 
room, Zoological Laboratory, Secretarial Rooms, etc., was opened 
^n 1897. The new South Wing, which is devoted to the De- 
partment of Natural Philosophy, will be completed in 1898.

the University. These powers, subject to any Ordinances made 
by the Commissioners, are thus defined in the Act : — 

" (1.) To administer and manage the whole revenue and property of the Univer-

tion all representations and reports made to it by the Senatus Academicus 
and by the General Council :

The Library of the University dates from 1500, when Bishop 
William Elphinstone, the founder of King's College, and Hector 
Boeee, its first Principal, presented many MSS. and printed 
books, several of which are still extant, bearing their donors' 
autographs. Other early benefactors were William Hay, the first 
Sub-principal, John Vans, the first Humanist, and Alexander 
-Galloway of Kinkell, Rector of the University. Bishop William 
Stewart, its Chancellor, 1532-45, " built the librarie hous, and with 
s, number of books f urnisht the same ". A catalogue of books 
appears in an Inventory of College property, prepared in 1542 
for a Visitation (the first on record) by the Rector and his 

In the seventeenth century the library of King's College re- 
■ceived valuable gifts of medical works from Alexander Reid, M.D., 
the first lecturer on Surgery in London ; of theological works 
from the Scougals, father and son ; and of works on law from 
Thomas Sandilands, Commissary of Aberdeen. The collection of 
early works on Civil and Canon law is the finest in Scotland. In 
1624, Thomas Reid, Latin Secretary to King James VI., endowed 
a Librarian at Marischal College, and bsqueathed *' the best 
library that ever the north pairtes of Scotland saw," including " the 
fairest and largest editions of the Classics that were printed from 
the time of Aldus Manutius until the year 1615, the Philosophers, 
Lawyers, Greek and Latin Fathers, with the works of the chief 
critics, Scaligers, Casaubons, Lambins, etc., that flourished in 
that period, and many valuable and curious MSS.". In the 
•eighteenth century the most generous supporter of the library 
was James Fraser, LL.D., Secretary of Chelsea Hospital, who pre- 
sented many books to King's College, restored the library build-

Hugh Macleod, D.D., Glasgow ; Miss Agnes Melvin ; Alexander

Hall privilege enjoyed, from 1709 to 1836, under the Acts 8 Anne^ 
chap. 21, 41 George III., chap. 107, and 54 George III., chap. 156. 
Such grant to be appropriated " for the purchase of books ".

keep " of the Library. 

In terms of Ordinance No. 2 of the Universities Commissioners

only from Ten a.m. to One p.m. on three days in each week in

Northern Counties of Scotland. 

The sum that can be set aside from general Library funds for

fidently appeals to former students and to all friends of the 
University to present to the Library copies of any publications 
which they may write or edit. All such, however small, will be 
gratefully received and acknowledged.

4. Croom Robertson Fellowship. 


I. The capital shall remain invested in consolidated annuities. 

II. The annually accruing interest shall be paid to the holder of the 
Fellowship minus the absolutely necessary expenses of management. 
For so long, however, as the interest on the capital exceeds £200, only 

Digitized by 



this amount will be paid to the Fellow, and any surplus shall be credited 
to capital. In the event of any income falling in owing to a temporal 
vacancy or any other cause this income shall be added to the capital 

III. The Fellowship shall not be tenable -simultaneously with any 
other Fellowship, Scholarship or Bursary which may be held only by a 
student or graduate of the University of Aberdeen. In regard to Fellow- 
ships and Scholarships which are foundations of other Universities or 
Corporations than the University of Aberdeen, the Nominating Com- 
mittee hereinafter appointed shall have power to decide which, if any, of 
them may be held simultaneously wfth this Fellowship. 

IV. The Fellowship shall be held by the same person for three (3) 
years, conmiencing with the First day of May in the year of appointment, 
or for such shorter period as the holder acts up to the conditions on which 
it is bestowed. 

y. The award of the Fellowship shaJl be made before the First (1st) 
day of May on some suitable date in April after the declaration of the 
names of the Graduates in Arts of the year, and the first award shall take 
place in the April immediately succeeding the date of the foundation of 
this Fellowship. As a rule^ a new appointment will be made every third 
year, but on the occurrence of a vacancy through the death or disquali- 
fication of the holder, a new selection shall be made in the next April 
following thereon, and this holder's three years shall count from the date 
of his selection. 

VI. The Fellowship shall be awarded to one who has studied in the 
University of Aberdeen from the time of his matriculation up to the time 
of his taking the Degree of Master of Arts, who has not completed seven 
(7) years from the date of his first matriculation as a regular student, 
wno has graduated with honours in Classics or in Mental Science and 
Philosophy, or in both, within the three years immediately preceding the 
date of the award, and who is judged likely to continue his studies with 
credit to himself and to the University. To obviate possible doubts it is 
hereby provided that it shall be no bar to the eligibility of a graduate 
either (1) that the continuity of his attendance as a student at the Uni- 
versity of Aberdeen has been temporarily interrupted through ill-health 
or other valid disabling cause, or (2) that for a part of his curriculum 
previous to graduation he has given attendance at another University, 
provided that the period of such attendance elsewhere do not altogether 
exceed one year. None other than a graduate with honours in Classics 
or in Mental Science and Philosophy shall be eligible for appointment to 
the Fellowship. 

VII. The award shall be made by the Senatus on the report and re- 
commendation of the Nominating Committee. This Committee, which 
is hereby constituted, shall be composed of the Professors for the time 
being in the Chairs of Humaqity and of Greek and of Moral Philosophy 
and of Logic. The senior of these Professors, in virtue of the date of his 
appointment, shall be, ex officio^ the Convener of this Committee, and is 
hereby empowered to convene the Committee as occasion may require. 

VIII. A meeting of the said Committee shall be held in accordance 
with the provisions of Section V. when an appointment has to be made, 

Digitized by 



or a vacancy is about to occur, in order to consider and adjudicate on the 
records and claims of the candidates eligible in the particular instance. 
For the purposes of this trust it will be sufficient advertisement to insert 
a notice in the ordinary advertisement board, intimating a month before 
the date of meeting that the Nominating Committee will proceed to the 
selection of a Fellow, so that candidates eligible may, if they so choose, 
formulate their claims. 

IX. If the Nominating Committee agree unanimously, or by a majority 
of three against one, upon a single candidate as possessed of the strongest 
claim and the highest promise, they shall present his name to the 
Senatus for appointment to the Fellowship. But in the event of their 
not agreeing upon a single candidate, either unanimously or by a majority 
of three against one, the matter shall b^ submitted to the Principal of the 
University for the time being, and his award when reported to the Sena- 
tus shall be final. If the Principal decline, or find himself unable to de- 
cide between the merits of the different candidates, then, but only then, 
the Nominating Committee shall institute a special examination in the 
two subjects, viz., of Classics and of Mental Science and Philosophy, and 
the selection for appointment to the Fellowship shall be detennined by 
the result of this examination. 

X. The holder of the Fellowship shall ordinarily be bound, and shall 
receive it only on condition that he agree to deliver annually during his 
tenure thereof a course of lectures, never fewer than three in number, 
but as a rule six in number, on either — 

(1) Some Greek or^Latin author, or 

(2) Some questions of Greek* or Boman History or literature or Art 

or Archfleology, or the result of work done when attending the 
British School at Athens, or 

(3) Some question or branch of Mental Science or Philosophy, or of 

the History thereof, or 

(4) Some question or branch of Comparative Philology (Ancient or 

Modern), or 

(6) Some question or period of early Christian History or Litera- 
ture, or 

(6) Some subject of a nature similar to the foregoing and appro- 
priate to the course of further study the holder of the Fellow- 
ship intends to pursue, the subjects specified above being 
intended only as examples indicating the form and aim of 
the lectures, and not as prescribing a hard and fast line. 

XI. The lectures shall be delivered in the College during the winter 
session at such time as the Senatus may approve, and shall be open to 
the attendance of students of the University and of others interested free 
of charge. 

XII. Notwithstanding my expressed preference for a course of lectures, 
the Senatus may direct that, instead of '^delivering such a course, the 
Fellow shall prepare and submit to them an essay or treatise on a selected 

XIII. The selection of the subject of the lectures or essay will be 
determined by the course of further study to which the holder intends 
to devote himself, and will be subject to the previous approval of the 

Digitized by 



Senatus. If the Senatus think fit they may prescribe the subject with 
due regard to the Fellow's proposed course of study, or they may sanction 
a proposal submitted by the Fellow on appointment. 

N:B. — Large scope has been given for the selection of a subject in 
order that the holder of the Fellowship may be able to undertake some 
task that will be in the line of his further studies, and to apply himself to 
it with good will. Thus if he is to study for the Church (either the 
Established or any of the Non-established or Dissenting Communities) 
his subject may properly be one relating to early Christian Literature or. 
History, where there is still room for research. Again, if he means to 
prosecute his Classical studies, or to devote himself to Philosophy, his 
subject should be of a nature akin thereto, and likely to further his object. 

XIV. If a holder of the Fellowship fail to perform the task set him, 
or if he show by the mode of performance that he has not applied himself 
to it with proi)er industry, the Senatus shall withhold the Fellowship from 
him, declare it vacant, and proceed to make another appointment as before 
provided. The order of the Senatus in this respect shall be final, and 
shall not be open to review by the University Court, or in any Court of

The Neil Arnott Foundation for Experimental Physics. 

In addition to the gift of £1000,- made to the University in 1869 
by the late Dr. Neil Arnott, of London, for a Natural Philosophy 
Scholarship, a farther gift of the same amount was made in 1876 
by Mrs. Arnott, to promote the actual experimental study of 
Natural Philosophy. The interest of the amount is to be applied 
to the purchase of apparatus for the Physical Laboratory and to 
the remuneration of any Assistant employed, under the Professor 
of Natural Philosophy, in giving practical instruction to Students ; 
or in any other way that shall seem to the Senatus of the time 
being best calculated to promote the practical study of Physics 
in connection with the ordinary teaching.

Bursaries and Scholarships not exclusively connected 
with the University of Aberdeen. 

Details of these Foundations will be found in the University 
Calendar for 1897-98. 

Scholarships and Fellowships. 


These Scholarships were instituted in 1860, by the Trustees of 
the late Mr. Ferguson of Cairnbrock, out of his Legacy of 
£60,000 for Educational and other Purposes, with a view 
to the encouragement of the higher learning in Scotland. 
They are six in number, of the annual value of £80 each, 
and tenable for two years. 


The following Students of the University of Aberdeen obtained 
Ferguson Scholarships * prior to 1893. 

* Previous to 1864 only two Scholarships were awarded — one for Classics and 
Mental Philosophy coigointly, and the other for Classics and Mathematics.

Her Majesty's Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851, 
having resolved to found a number of Scholarships in Science^ 
have offered to this University the right of nominating a person 
to hold one of these Scholarships every alternative year. The 
Scholarships are of the annual value of £150, and are tenable for 
two years, and it is expected that the next nomination by this 
University will take place in 1900,* 

The Commissioners require the following conditions to be 
satisfied by the person selected to hold the Scholarship : — 
(a) That such person is a British subject. 
(6) That he has been (or will at the end of the Session of 
Studies preceding his nomination have been) a bond- 
fide Student of Science for a term of three years ia 
an Institution or Institutions in which special atten- 
tion is given to scientific study, 
(c) That he has been, for a full year preceding the date of 
his nomination, a student of the University of Aber- 
deen (or has been a student of this University for a 
full year ending within twelve months prior to the 
date of his nommation, and since ceasing to be such 
student has been engaged solely in scientific study). 
{d) That he indicates high promise of capacity for advancing 
Science or its applications by original research. 
[Evidence of having been engaged in scientific research 
will be strictly required, this being one of the main 
qualifications for a Scholarship.] 
(6) A nominee, whose age exceeds thirty, will be accepted 

only under very special circumstances. 
(/) The Scholarship may be held at any University in 
England or abroad, or in some other institution to 
be approved by the Commissioners. A scholar will 
be expected to spend at least one year of his tenure 
of office at an institution other than this University ; 

* The Commissioners reserve to themselves the riffht of withdrawing at any 
time the privilege of nomination, or otherwise altering tne scheme of foondation.

and the continuation of the Scholarship for the 
second year will be dependent on the work done 
in the first year being satisfactory to the Commis- 
(g) The nominee will be required during his tenure of the 
Scholarship to devote himself to those branches of 
Science, such as Physics, Mechanics, or Chemistry, 
the extension of which is specially important to our 
national industries, and he must pledge himself not 
to hold, during such tenure, any position of emolu- 

In addition to these conditions, the University Court of this 
University have sanctioned the following regulations : — 

(1^ The Scholarship shall be awarded for the best thesis em- 
bodymg the results of original research in Physics or Chemistry, 
carried out by the Candidate ; but in the event of two or more 
theses appearing to the Examiners to be of equal merit, an ex- 
amination may be resorted to as a means of deciding between 
such Candidates. 

(2) The Candidates being otherwise of equal merit, the 
Scholarship shall, as far as possible, be awarded on alternate 
occasions for distinction in Physics and Chemistry. 

(3) The Competition shall be open to all Bachelors of Science 
of this University of not more than three years' standing, and 
only to such. 

(4) The Professors of Natural Philosophy and Chemistry shall 
be the Examiners. 


Founded in terms of Ordinance No. 117 of the Universities 
Commissioners (1889). The value is £100 per annum, tenable 
for two years.
