PREFACE 

The project of compiling a School Register for the Edinburgh Academy has 
been under consideration for a number of years, and it is a serious misfortune 
that the work was not undertaken a quarter of a century ago, when yet a 
few of the original pupils were with us, and while access could still be had to 
that unique repository of Academical lore, the memory of the late Mr, James 
Carmichael. During that period much valuable information regarding those 
who attended the School in its early years has been obscured, if not irre- 
trievably lost, and the task of collecting such material as was still available 
has been rendered more difficult. In many directions much anxious work 
has been done in making investigations which have proved fruitless through 
lapse of time, but it is expected that the circulation of this volume among so 
many interested readers may result in opening up sources of information 
which have not hitherto been reached. 

On various occasions during the last ten years members of the Committee 
of the Academical Club have, along with others interested in the School, urged 
the importance of undertaking the publication of a School Register, but it 
was not until 1908 that any definite step towards the achievement of that 
object was taken. The Academical Club then appointed Mr. A. S. Pringle, 
advocate, to be Editor, with a Consultative Committee to co-operate with 
him consisting of Mr. J. H. Millar, advocate. Dr. John S. Mackay, Mr. A. A. 
Scot Skirving, C.M.G., Mr. F. C. Thomson, advocate, Mr. S. C. Freeman, and 
Mr. C. E. W. Macpherson, C.A., as Secretary. Mr. Pringle did much valuable 
work in collecting and arranging most of the information that could be pro- 
cured from the School records and in making out the Schedules and relative Card 
Index on which the Register has been built up. Mr. Pringle was also subse- 
quently engaged in dealing with these Schedules, but after completing a few 
hundred records he found that other calls upon his time and energies had 
become so pressing that he had to relinquish his duties as Editor. 

The Committee of the Club, on Mr. Pringle's retirement in May 1910, 
appointed Mr. Thomas Henderson, W.S., and Mr. P. F. Hamilton-Grierson, 
advocate, to be Joint Editors, and they since that date have carried on the 
work of collecting all the information obtainable concerning those who 
attended the School. 

While the Editors have in some quarters encountered a disappointing 
spirit of apathy (nearly a thousand Schedules are still outstanding), they 
have as a general rule received the hearty and sympathetic assistance not 



vi PREFACE 

only of Academicals, but also of many who had no direct connexion with 
the School. 

The members of the Consultative Committee have rendered valuable ser- 
vices. The historical Introduction is from the pen of Mr. J. H. Millar, as 
are also the School Bibliography and the Biographical Notes on the Rectors. 
Mr. F. C. Thomson has furnished lists of the Directors and other Office- 
bearers. The Athletic Records have been compiled with much labour and under 
serious difficulties by Mr. S. C. Freeman. Mr. Scot Skirving has supplied the 
references to the Academy Chronicle which are appended to the records of those 
concerning whom any article of consequence has appeared in that magazine, 
and the late Dr. Mackay furnished, after careful research, particulars of the 
publications written either for use in the School or for other purposes by 
Academy Rectors and Masters. His lamented death occurred as this volume 
was passing through the press. 

A few words of explanation are necessary regarding the scheme of the 
Register. From the commencement of the School till 1886 the ' Class-Master ' 
system prevailed, but was then discarded in favour of the present system. 
Under the original plan all the boys who joined the First or lowest class — the 
geits — were placed under the care of a particular Classical Master, who undertook 
the sole charge of their education in Classics until they reached the Fourth 
Class, after which they came under the direct tuition of the Rector in Classics 
in the Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Classes, the Class Master sharing indeed with 
the Rector the duty of their instruction, but also returning to start another 
set of geits upon their scholastic course. Thus the same group of boys moved 
upwards from class to class in consecutive sessions from the bottom to the top 
of the School, with the result that they formed closer bonds of union with each 
other and with their Class INIaster than is possible under the modem arrange- 
ments. Almost invariably, too, as each Seventh-Class group left the School, 
the members, with former class associates, formed themselves into a Class Club 
named after the Class Master and distinguished by the years of entering and 
leaving the School. These Class Clubs have done good work, not merely in 
cementing friendships formed in the class-room or the yards, but also in 
preserving the traditions of the Academy and fostering its prosperity. 

Having regard to the significance of the Class-Master system, it was 
•decided to make it the basis of the arrangement of entries in the Register for 
the years during which it prevailed, and for subsequent years to adopt the 
usual method of entering each boy under the year in which he began his school 
life. It should, however, be added that, during the existence of the old system, 
there were now and then cases of boys changing from one Class Master to 
another by remaining for a second year in the same class, or by ' skipping ' a 
class and going to a higher one than would in the ordinary course have been 
taken. The Editors have found it necessary to adhere to a uniform rule in 
dealing with such exceptional cases, and all boys have been entered in the

Master's Class in which they joined the School. It has not generally been 
practicable to indicate the movements of such boys from one Master's Class 
to that of another, but where attention has been drawn to the fact a note 
has been added indicating the change. 

Although a Register of this kind can never be altogether complete, it is 
hoped that the work which has been done will lay a solid foundation for later 
editions. This First Edition, for the reasons already stated, doubtless lacks 
many items of information which are still procurable, and it is earnestly asked 
that all those into whose hands it may come will communicate any particulars 
within their knowledge which are awanting to the Secretary of the Academical 
Club, Edinburgh. 

In conclusion, the Editors have to tender their best thanks to the many 

Academicals and others who have generously given their time and trouble in 

assisting and forwarding the work. They desire in particular to acknowledge 

their heavy debt of obligation to Mr. A. M. Kennedy, the Sub-Editor, who has 

spared no pains and has bestowed much laborious work upon the preparation 

of the book, without which it would not have made so creditable an appearance. 

Special thanks are also due to Mr. Walter Seton Dickson, advocate, whose 

acquaintance with Scottish county families has been of great value, and who 

has made careful search for particulars in cases where the ordinary sources 

of information were defective.

INTRODUCTION 

' Leonard Horner and I had often discussed the causes and the remedies of 
the decline of classical education in Scotland ; and we were at last satisfied 
that no adequate improvement could be effected so long as there was only 
one great classical school in Edinburgh, and this one jilaced under the town 
council, and lowered, perhaps necessarily, so as to suit the wants of a class of 
boys to more than two-thirds of Avhom classical accomplishment is foreseen to 
be useless. So one day on the top of one of the Pentlands — emblematic of 
the solidity of our foimdation and of the extent of our prospects — we two 
resolved to set about the establishment of a new school. On taking others 
into cDuncil we found that the conviction of the inadequacy of the High 
School was far more general than we supposed. Scott took it up eagerly. 
The sum of £10,000 was subscribed immediately ; and soon afterwards about 
£2000 more. We were fiercely opposed, as we expected, by the town council ; 
and, but not fiercely, by a few of the friends of the institution we were going 
to encroach upon. But, after due discussion and plotting, our contributors 
finally resolved to proceed, and in 1823 the building was begun. It was 
opened, under the title of " The Edinburgh Academy," on the 1st of October 
1824, amidst a great assemblage of proprietors, pupils, and the public. We 
had a good prayer by Sir Harry IMoncreiff, and speeches by Scott and old 
Henry Mackenzie, and an important day for education in Scotland, in 
reference to the middle and upper classes. Mackenzie's vigour was delightful. 
Though about eighty he made an animated address, exulting in the rise of a 
new school upon a reformed system.' ^ 

Such is a concise and authentic account — the locus classicus on the subject — 
of the genesis of The Edinburgh Academy, and it need be supplemented here 
in only a few particulars. The word ' Academy,' it may be premised, was 
originally applied in Scotland to a class of institution called into being in the 
latter half of the eighteenth century by the growing demand for a more 
' practical ' kind of education than the old burgh grammar schools supplied. 
By the end of the century the academies and the grammar schools had in 
most places coalesced, so that the name of Academy had come to signify 
a school in which the endowed and proprietary characters were combined. 
Typical examples were the Perth Academy, founded in 1760, and united 
with the grammar school in 1807, and the Ayr Academy, founded in 1794.

xii INTRODUCTION 

It will, liowcvcr, have been observed that the motives which inspired 
the founders of the new Academy in Edinburgh were far from being purely 
utilitarian. The interests of classical learning in Scotland were what they had 
at heart, the promotion of classical learning was the object at which they 
aimed. But, apart from other drawbacks which they hoped to get rid of, 
the situation of the High School, erected in 1778 not far from the site of the 
present University, had become highly inconv'cnient for boys residing in the 
New Town which had grown up since that date. The best part of a year 
was spent in futile negotiations with the Town Council, who were apparently 
willing enough at one time to entertain a proposal to move the High School 
to a more central situation. The promoters, on the other hand, would hear 
of nothing but two High Schools, one for the New Town and one for the Old. 
They accordingly proceeded with their own scheme, and thus the Academy 
has from the first been wholly proprietary in its constitution. The total sum 
subscribed by the proprietors, who were incorporated by Royal Charter in 1825, 
amounts to some £16,000. Upon this no dividend has ever been paid, nor 
has one penny of public money been asked for or received either out of local 
rates or out of Government grants. The Academy may thus be truly described 
as the unadulterated product of individual enterprise. 

The West Princes Street Gardens (the basin of the old North Loch) and 
the Excise Office (now the Royal Bank) were among the situations thought 
of for the new school. In the end it was built ' in a field to the north of the 
New Town, and within ten minutes' walk from the most distant part of it.' 
The architect was Mr. William Burn, who seems to have had very proper 
notions as to the desirability of abundant cubic space and plenty of daylight 
for class-rooms. The area on which the simple but dignified building with all 
its parts and pertinents stands extends to four acres. Would that double 
that amount of territory had been acquired ! A proposal was mooted, but 
fell through, for buying the greater part of tlie east side of Saxe-Coburg Place 
for boarding-houses. Some of the masters have always received boarders 
in their homes, but many generations of pupils were to pass tlirough the school 
before boarding-houses built for that purpose were provided. The school 
buildings and yards must have been a conspicuous feature in the magnificent 
panorama wliieh unrolls itself to the northward from George Street, until 
they were effectually obliterated from the landscape by the erection of St. 
Stephen's Church in 1828. 

The opening ceremony was a great event. ' It was pleasant,' notes the 
Scotsman of 2nd October 1824, ' to see the boys ranging themselves in their 
order, all neat and clean, with looks full of vivacity, thinking only of the 
animated scene they were bearing a part in, and concerning themselves 
little about the tasks of the morrow.' According to the Courant of the 
same date. Sir Harry Moncreiff's prayer was ' most impressive and eloquent.' 
The main passages in Sir Walter Scott's inspiring address are duly repro- 



INTRODUCTION xiii 

duced in Mr. Lockhart's Life of his father-in-law,^ which does not, how- 
ever, record that his allusion to the Greek War of Independence then waging 
was received with 'ideals of applause.' The Rector struck the right note 
by emphasising the importance of Latin and Greek. ' They were not to make 
any innovation, but surely the country of Crichton and Buchanan should be 
eminent in Latin literature.' Greek would be taught through the medium 
of English, and not of a Latin jargon. The principles of the English language 
would also be taught. Altogether, ' he trusted they were so complete that 
they might be said to be a self-contained house.' As for the good old ' Man of 
Feeling,' he may have been {teste Cockburn) ' animated,' but, if the Courant 
is to be believed, he was inaudible. 

The new venture found the local press upon the whole not unfriendly. 
The Scotsman had been apprehensive lest the Academy should be ' too 
patrician,' but praised the Directors' preliminary statement. It pointed out 
how men of all shades of opinion (and political feeling ran high within two 
years of Sir Alexander Boswell's lamentable death) had joined hands 
in the undertaking, and characteristically taunted the clergy with not 
having come forward to connect themselves with the new institution. 
In the controversy which continued to rage as to whether the High 
School should be transferred from the Old Town to the New, the Scotsman 
supported the negative. The transference was, nevertheless, effected in 1829. 
It is pleasant to remember that, at the dinner given by the Directors to cele- 
brate the opening of the Academy, Sir Walter Scott had proposed the toast of 
' Prosperity to the High School of Edinburgh.' 

It was upon the system of the High School that the Academy was in its 
main features admittedly modelled, and the system of the High School differed 
in no material respect from that which prevailed in the other burgh schools of 
Scotland. Its chief notes were the unrestricted competition of the masters 
with one another, and the absence of an appointed and obligatory curriculum. 
This state of matters continued down to the third quarter of the nineteenth 
century, if not later. We find the Assistant Commissioners— Messrs. Harvey 
and Sellar — reporting as follows in 1868 : — 

' In many, probably the majority, of the schools visited we found that there was 
no settled curriculum or course. Each school was a congeries of classes under different 
masters, without any definite aim to which all were striving, and without any harmony 
of action among the teachers. ... In these schools there was a perpetual struggle 
for fees among all these masters. . . . The education is sold in these schools like 
wares in a shop, at so much per pound, and the idea of the seller is to sell as many 
pounds as he can for his own immediate benefit. There is a nominal partnership 
existing, inasmuch as all the teachers are appointed by the same managing board 
and teach in the same building. But all the partners are struggling against each 
other, thinking only of themselves and caring for the good neither of the firm nor of 
the trade.' 

> Edin. ed., vii. 245. 



xiv INTRODUCTION 

Thus every master had a direct vested interest in the size of his class and 
collected his own fees — a practice, by the by, not unknown in some English 
schools, e.g. Merchant Taylors' .^ It followed that the position of the Head- 
master or Rector was anomalous, and it is not surprising to learn that such an 
authority was occasionally dispensed with altogether. At the best he was 
but primus inter pares. At the worst he was but a medium of communica- 
tion between the members of the staff, as they would now be termed, and 
the managing body. ' He had little to do with the appointment of existing 
teachers, did not regulate the work of the school, and held only limited 
disciplinary powers.' The average Scots burgh school consisted in reality of 
so many separate institutions collected under the same roof.- 

The founders of the Academy adopted the traditional plan, with certain 
important modifications. There were to be five classes, the first four being 
each assigned to a classical master, and the fifth being the Rector's peculiar 
care. The first class — universally known as the ' geits ' — was conducted by its 
master through four successive years, until at the beginning of its fifth session 
it was handed over to the Rector. The master then took in hand a fresh first 
class, though he rendered a certain amount of assistance to the Rector in 
teaching his former set of pupils. The Rector's class was to remain with him 
for two years. Before long it naturally split up into a fifth and a sixth class, 
and in 1827 a seventh class was instituted, when a French master was also 
for the first time appointed. A maximum number of 110 was laid down for 
each of the first four classes, and the Rector's class was restricted to the modest 
figure of 160. The various masters and the Rector collected in person the 
fees respectively due to them, but from 1829 onwards the whole fees payable 
by the boys were collected by the Clerk to the Directors, and divided among 
the masters according to a specified scale. At the very beginning the Directors 
laid it down as an absolute rule that no master should under any pretence take 
fees of a higher amount than that authorised, ' and that there shall be no 
Candlemas gift or any other gratuity whatever to the masters.' 

The school hours were from nine o'clock till three on five days of the week, 
and from nine till eleven on Saturday. The much appreciated boon of a whole 
holiday on that day was not conceded until 1850. The session opened on 1st 
October, and terminated with the Annual Public Examination or Exhibition on 
1st August. There was a recess from Christmas Day to New Year's Day, 
both inclusive, and the King's Birthday was a holiday. Four days — from a 
Thursday to a Monday inclusive — were allowed in October or November, and 
four in April or May, for ' the Preachings.' Four other holidays might be 
given in the course of the year at the discretion of the Rector. Promotion 
from a lower to a higher class was in the vast majority of cases automatic : 
the first class of one session became the second of the next en bloc, and so on

INTRODUCTION xv 

up the school. It is a remarkable but by no means an unparalleled fact that 
this system worked a good deal better in practice than it had any business 
in theory to do. 

Two points stand out prominently in the ' Academy plan ' : the un- 
equivocal supremacy of the Rector, and the ascertainment of a uniform 
curriculum. 

With regard to the former, the emphatic declaration of the Directors seems 
worth quoting. ' We deem it,' so they affirm, ' to be quite indispensable for 
the good government of the school, and for an efficient operation of the plan 
of tuition, that all the Under Masters shall consider themselves as subject to 
the superintendence of the Rector : that it shall be his duty to see that the 
system of instruction authorised by the Directors is carried properly into 
effect in all its parts ; that if he finds any of the masters defective in any respect, 
he shall recommend the necessary alterations in their proceedings according 
to the way which his own judgment shall point out ; but, if he finds his 
admonitions neglected, that it shall be imperative upon him to inform the 
Directors,' with whom alone rested the power of appointment and dismissal. 
In process of time the Rector's powers have steadily increased, and the Board 
have for a good many years past committed to him the duty of engaging and 
dismissing the staff. 

With regard to the latter point, attendance upon the writing and arith- 
metic master was, to begin with, declared to be optional. But the exercise of 
this option even in a small number of cases was found to be attended with so 
much inconvenience and disadvantage that, after a year's experience, the 
Directors announced their resolution ' to make it imperative on the boys to 
attend all the classes prescribed in the course of instruction. Wherever,' 
they proceed, ' a boy is either very much before or very much behind his class- 
fellows, the masters will take care that he shall be properly employed according 
to his degree of advancement ; but it is much better for the discipline of the 
school that all the boys in the same class should be occupied and remain 
within the bounds of the Academy during the whole hours of teaching than 
that they should either be allowed to run about in idleness, or go beyond the 
walls to attend other classes, which affords an idle boy too good an oppor- 
tunity to stay away from school altogether.' ^ The closing of the school gates 
during school hours (I understand that they are not now actually locked) has 
thus been a distinctive note of the Academy from its very infancy, though 
boys who live near enough to return home for dinner in the middle of the day 
are allowed to do so. But for this general rule the King's peace in the village 
of Stockbridge would have run the risk of daily breach. As it was, 'cad- 
fights ' with the ' keelies ' of the neighbourhood used to be sufficiently frequent, 
and, in time of snow, sufficiently dangerous, to please the most pugnacious. 
Fortunately, they are all but unknown to the Academy boys of to-day, and 
' Directors' Report to the Proprietors, 1827. 



xvi INTRODUCTION 

the war-cry of ' Hulla ! bulla ! bulla ! ' (with the accent on the first syllable) is 
no longer heard in the land. 

Of the curriculum itself not much need be said. Latin and Greek, as we 
have seen, played the principal part, and members of the staff were not dilatory 
in compiling and publishing appropriate text-books. The Latin Rudiments 
(based on Ruddiman) and Delectus and the Greek Rudiments and Extracts 
are, in the present writer's humble opinion, incomparablj' the best works 
of their kind ever produced, in this country at all events ; infinitely superior 
as teaching instruments to new-fangled compilations designed to make grammar 
easy and agreeable. The correct pronunciation of the Latin tongue gave cause 
for much heart-searching in the early years, even the Proprietors stepping in to 
take part in the fray. A compromise was ultimately reached, as a result of which 
the boys in the first three classes were taught to pronounce in the Scots manner, 
and the boys in the higher classes in the English, Such an arrangement was 
almost bound to break down ; and, in point of fact, the English mode of pro- 
nunciation predominated down to Dr. Harvey's day, when in 1872 the other 
was revived throughout the school. The most novel feature in the orthodox 
course of instruction was the importance attached to the teaching of English, 
both for its own sake and for that of the study of the classics. The Directors 
undertook to provide a master for English ' who shall have a pure English 
accent,' though he need not be an Englishman by birth, and who shall be 
' a well-educated, accomplished scholar.' It only remains to note that the 
frequent infliction of corporal punishment was to be ' discouraged,' though 
in point of fact the tawse has never fallen into desuetude. 

The Rector and Masters were elected on Saturday, 8rd April 1824, six 
months before the opening of the first session. Their names were as follows : — 

Rector.— The Rev. John Williams of Balliol College, Oxford, Vicar of 
Lampeter, and Headmaster of Lampeter School. 

Classical Masters. — Robert Mitchell, A.M., Rector of the Grammar School, 
Kirkcudbright ; William Henry Marriott, B.A., Trinity College, Cambridge ; 
Archibald Carmichael, Teacher of Latin and Greek in the Academy, Inverness ; 
and George Ferguson, Assistant Master in the Grammar School, Selkirk. 

English Master. — Charles Barker, B.A., Trinity College, Cambridge. 

Writing Master.— James Glover, Writer in the Academy, Hope Street, 
Liverpool. 

Mathematical and Arithmetical Master.— James Gloag, Teacher of 
Mathematics in Heriot's Hospital, Edinburgh. 

The Janitor was the celebrated John Howell (d. 1863), who wrote an Essay 
on the War Galleys of the Ancients and a Life of Alexander Selkirk, and from 
whom the Directors were presently to purchase ' some very ingenious models of 
an ancient galley, a Roman Camp, Caesar's bridge over the Rhine, and of some 



INTRODUCTION xvi 

machines described in the classics.' The remains of the galley were certainly 
extant down to a comparatively recent date in the cellars of the main building. 

There can be no doubt that in the person of John Williams ('Taffey ' or 
' Punch,' as he was familiarly denominated) the Directors secured a remarkable 
man. He had been a contemporary and a close friend at Balliol of Mr. Lockhart, 
to whose good offices, as well as to those of Sir Walter Scott, he doubtless owed 
his appointment. On the eve of his election the Directors heard disquieting 
reports. Williams not only had all the irascibility of a Welshman, but was said 
to be ' morose and cynical ' ; his temper was ' unequal ' ; his manners were sadly 
to seek ; as assistant to Dr. Gabell at Winchester he had been more conspicuous 
for the fortiter in re than for the suaviter in modo ; and so on. A deputation of 
the Board hastened to Oxford, where the evidence was conflicting. A long and 
beautifully written letter from Lockhart probably did more to allay their mis- 
givings than anything else, and the present writer is bound to say that he never 
read a more handsome, a more judicious, or (to judge by the event) a more truth- 
ful testimonial. Under Williams the Academy flourished beyond expectation. 
At the end of its fourth session the number of boys attending the school had 
reached the astonishing figure of 521. Before long the Academical Club for old 
boys was formed, and talked of ' hiring apartments.' It was to fulfil a much 
more useful purpose in establishing prizes for the school, and in founding an 
exhibition to the Universities in 1868. After manifesting all the symptoms of 
senile decay, it rose like a phcEnix from its ashes in 1900, and became the power- 
ful organisation which we know to-day. 

In 1828 Williams resigned the Rectorship to take up the Chair of Roman 
Language and Literature in the new-born University of London. His place was 
filled by the ' transient and embarrassed phantom ' of the Rev. Thomas 
Sheepshanks, who remained for only one session. In 1829 Williams, who 
had never even lectured in London, returned to Edinburgh and resumed his 
former office, to the mutual satisfaction of himself and the Directors. This 
singular escapade supplied Sir Walter Scott with strong confirmation of his 
cherished opinion with regard to schoolmasters, which the curious will find 
set forth in Mr. Lang's Life of Lockhart,^ and much more bluntly expressed 
in that invaluable storehouse of Academical tradition. Colonel Fergusson's 
Chronicles of the Cumming Club.^ The Archdeacon, as he became in 1833, 
remained at the Academy until 1847, consolidating the great work he had begun. 
In that year he returned to his native principality, and presently became the 
first Warden of Llandovery School. Sir Walter, whose younger son had been 
one of his private pupils at Lampeter, described him as ' a heaven-born teacher ' 
and as ' the best schoolmaster in Europe.' And this testimony is corroborated 
by Archibald Campbell Tait — the greatest of his pupils, the greatest perhaps 
of all old Academy boys — who paid a fine tribute to him in 1857, and again at 
the Jubilee Dinner in 1874. ' He was a man and a real man ; he taught as

none but a man of great intellectual power could teach ; and he fascinated 
his pupils as none but a man of feeling could those with whom he has to 
do.' ^ It may be doubted if full justice has ever been done to his share in 
reviving the moribund and all but derelict frame of secondary education in 
Scotland. Yet it should not be forgotten that what he did was done, not 
merely with the passive acquiescence of the Directors, but rather, with their 
lively counsel and energetic aid. A glance at the names of the original 
Board — being the fifteen which come first in the list printed in this volume — 
conclusively shows that a more distinguished and representative body of citizens 
could scarcely have been gathered together in the Edinburgh of 1824. Besides 
being distinguished and representative, they were, moreover, essentially busy 
men ; and they were thus able, as their minutes prove, to bestow an amount of 
trouble and attention upon the institution under their control which would 
astonish the present generation. For it is busy men alone who can find time 
to do the things worth doing. 

Having thus seen the Academy fairly launched upon its career of usefulness 
and prosperity, we must proceed with our narrative at a somewhat more rapid 
pace. Archdeacon Williams's successor was the Rev. John Hannah, Fellow of 
Lincoln College, Oxford, who held the Rectorship for seven uneventful years. 
The most important incident in his term of office was the acquisition upon lease 
in 1854 of the field at Raeburn Place. The Directors had never been insensible 
to the importance of exercise and athletics. In their preliminary statement 
they proposed that the geits should have three-quarters of an hour for play in the 
morning, and another quarter of an hour before going into school at two o'clock, 
and they further expressed the opinion that ' between every change of occupa- 
tion there ought to be an interval in all the classes ; a i-un of five or ten minutes 
in the playground will be quite enough to renovate the relaxed energies both of 
body and mind, and make the boys come with fresh vigour to their new employ- 
ment, and will materially conduce to their health.' It was in these intervals 
that the game of ' hailes,' unquestionably the best variety of the hockey or 
shinty type of game ever invented, came into vogue, superseding marbles and 
other more infantile amusements. A drill sergeant was engaged as far back 
as 1826 for the benefit of such boys as chose to take advantage of his services, 
and the well-known name of Mr. Roland occurs in the prospectus of 1831, if 
not earlier, as giving instruction in fencing and gymnastic exercises. Elderly 
and middle-aged men will recall the old gymnasium ' down the bank,' nor will 
tiiey have forgotten that it was on the level piece of ground outside ' Roland's ' 
that the fights took place. Cricket of a sort was played in the yards in the 
'forties. But the provision of a cricket field was an enormous step in advance, 
which it would have been impossible to take but for the public-spirited efforts 
of individual members of the Academical Club, and more particularly of

INTRODUCTION xix 

Dr. Hannah, Mr. Kenneth Mackenzie, Mr. Thomas Cleghorn (a son-in-law of 
Lord Cockburn), and last, but not least, Mr. Robert Balfour, who jointly assumed 
the pecuniary responsibility for the transaction. The field would long ago have 
been handed over to the speculative builder had not a movement been set on 
foot to acquire it in perpetuity. The necessary funds were raised by private 
subscription, and the Academy cricket ground, together with the Grange 
Cricket Club field and the adjoining pond of the Coates Curling Club, has since 
1882 been vested in a body of trustees, who hold it for behoof of the Academical 
Cricket Club and the school. The Academical Football Club was founded as a 
branch of the Cricket Club in 1858, and by that time, no doubt, the ' winter 
pastime ' was in full swing in the Academy during the appropriate season. 
The tale of the achievements of the school and the club, both in football and 
in cricket, compiled with meticulous industry from the most elusive sources, 
is duly set forth in another part of this volume. The school colours are blue 
and white — the colours of the young Gargantua, the white signifying gladness, 
pleasure, delight, and rejoicing, and the blue, celestial things. 

In 1854 Dr. Hannah accepted the Wardenship of Trinity College, 
Glenalmond. He was succeeded at the Academy by the Rev. James Stephen 
HoDSON of Balliol and Merton Colleges, Oxford, a brother of ' Hodson of 
Hodson's Horse,' and assuredly not the least striking figure in the roll of 
Academy Rectors. During his time the school may be said to have held a 
unique position and enjoyed a unique prestige among the educational establish- 
ments of Scotland. This was partly due to good fortune as well as to good 
guidance. Competition was not severe. Glenalmond was really the only 
formidable rival. Merchiston Castle School and Loretto School were just 
emerging to dry land from a trying series of vicissitudes towards the close of 
Dr. Hodson's reign, the one under Mr. Rogerson, the other under Mr. Almond. 
The Academy thus enjoyed a practical monopoly of the best material — the pick 
of the boys emanating from the upper and professional classes ; for the number 
of those who were sent for their education to England was at that time trifling. 
Yet it would be unjust to deny to Dr. Hodson his full proportion of the credit 
due for the uninterrupted successes achieved by his old pupils at the Universities 
and in other walks of life. A fine scholar and a strict disciplinarian, he ruled 
the place not with a rod of iron nor a pair of tawse but with a tongue 
steeped in vitriol, and he left upon all who passed through his hands the 
indelible impression of a strong personality. Now the gift of sarcasm, though 
an admirable servant, is a notoriously bad master. Dr. Hodson made many 
enemies, nor heeded how many he made. The stories illustrating his propensity 
to an ' hybristic ' manner and speech are innumerable, and it need hardly be 
said that this failing, luxuriantly indulged, became inveterate with the lapse 
of years. He did not reserve his memorable gibes for those boys whom he 
disliked, or for their parents, whom he probably disliked still more ; the long- 
suffering Directors themselves fell under the dreaded lash. He had a positive 




XX INTRODUCTION 

genius for calculated indiscretion, and lor several years before his abdication 
his relations with the Board had been a good deal less than pleasant. Finally, 
after a controversy which strained them to breaking point, Dr. Hodson resigned 
at the end of the session of 1869. 

One has heard so much of ' Goudie,' as he was nicknamed, and come across 
so many men who had been under him — they grow fewer, alas, every year— 
that it is no easy task to ' reckon him up,' in Mr. Bucket's convenient phrase. 
But it cannot be seriously doubted that he was a great headmaster, and our 
last word in parting from him must be one of applause rather than of censure. 
Not much importance, perhaps, is to be attached to his institution in 1855 of 
a 'Modern Side,' which blossomed into a 'Modern School' in 1866. As in 
most other schools in this island, that department was for many years a mere 
receptacle for boys without much natural aptitude for study of any kind, 
though doubtless it served a purpose by relieving the ordinary classes of their 
presence. But the highest testimony to Dr. Hodson's clearness of vision and 
soundness of judgment (apart from the many distinguished men whom he 
helped to ' turn out *) is afforded by the fact that he foresaw the termination of 
the ' halcyon days,' and the advent of a period of storm and stress, w^hen the 
Academy system would be tested to the uttermost. Repeatedly in his annual 
reports to the Directors he drew attention to weak points, more especially to 
the unwieldy size of the classes, frequently running up to 80 or 90, to automatic 
promotion, and to the tendency of boys to leave school too early. Had his 
warnings been heeded in time much trouble and anxiety might have subse- 
quently been spared. 

It was, then, at no ordinary juncture that Dr. Thomas Harvey came to the 
Academy in 1869 as Dr. Hodson's successor, and the opening of the Fettes 
College in the following year was the outward and visible sign of the gravity 
of the crisis. Dr. Harvey had been a Snell Exhibitioner, and had formed at 
Balliol a lifelong friendship with Mr. Jowett, destined to become the Master of 
that College, with Sir Alexander Grant, with William Young Sellar, and with 
other men of high distinction. He had held a classical mastership at the 
Academy for a few years (1847-56) — it is recorded that he played cricket 
with the boys, a rare thing for a master to do in those days — so that he was 
already familiar with the ways of the school ; while he might be presumed 
to have learned the business of a headmaster by his subsequent experience at 
Merchiston, where it is interesting to recall that Mr. Almond was one of his 
assistants. An accurate and elegant, if scarcely a profound, scholar, he was 
admirably qualified for taking the Rector's classes, and those who have been 
taught by him can testify to the pleasure as well as the profit which they reaped 
from his tuition, no less than to repeated instances of his consideration and 
kindness. But it was his misfortune rather than his fault that, whereas at the 
beginning of his career it was the chief function of a headmaster to teach, by 
the end of his career it had become the chief function of a headmaster to 



INTRODUCTION xxi 

' organise.' The centre of activity had passed from the class-room to the office, 
and to-day the difficulty for a zealous head is to find a spare moment to bestow 
upon the instruction of his pupils. Dr. Harvey failed to grasp the significance 
of a transition which can have been but little to his taste, and the general 
discipline and efficiency of the school suffered in consequence. Yet before his 
resignation he had introduced two innovations of importance. He had per- 
suaded the Directors in the first place to institute a Preparatory Department 
for boys under ten or so, which has proved an unqualified success, and in the 
second place to provide a proper dinner for the boys in the middle of the 
day. Hitherto a simple and inexpensive meal, consisting perhaps of a ' bap ' 
and a ' cookie,' or a ' half albert ' and a rye roll, purchased at the window of 
the janitor's lodge from the fair hands of the ' Mrs. Jenny ' of the day, had to 
content the most voracious appetite. Gaps had, of course, to be filled out of 
school, and tuck-shops did a roaring trade, the one which enjoyed the great 
bulk of the Academy custom being John Bowton's, at the west end of 
Hamilton Place. Henceforth a regular hot dinner was served daily in Hall 
for the modest price of one shilling. That these banquets supplied a ' felt 
want ' is evident from their steadily increasing popularity, which ultimately 
necessitated the building of a new dining-hall and kitchen in 1912 on the 
north side of the geits' yards. It should be added that in 1886 a ten- 
tative beginning was made of promotion by merit, though it was not until 
Mr. Mackenzie's reign that the system got into full swing, and Dr. Harvey 
himself appears to have viewed it with little favour. 

One really formidable danger was happily averted in Dr. Harvey's time. On 
the south side of the town a competitor had sprung up in the shape of George 
Watson's College, converted from an ' Hospital ' into a day school of the familiar 
tj'pe. A section of the public was supposed to be desirous that the same pro- 
cess of transformation should be applied in the case of the Fettes College on the 
north side of the city. The Fettes authorities were strongly opposed to any such 
proposal, and, while not contending that day boys should be expressly excluded 
from the benefits of Sir William Fettes' bounty, were prepared to receive them 
only under conditions which operated as a practical barrier to their attendance. 
Had the Commissioners under the Educational Endowments (Scotland) Act of 
1882, with whom jurisdiction in the matter rested, decided in favour of revolu- 
tionising the plan upon which that munificent endowment had so far been 
administered, the probabilities are that the Academy would have been ' squeezed 
out.' But they did not so decide, and a ' place in the sun ' was left for the senior 
institution. The case for the Proprietors, it may be mentioned, was admirably 
presented before the Commissioners by the late Mr. Andrew Beatson Bell.^ 

Robert Jamieson Mackenzie came to the Academy as Rector in 1888 in 
the prime of life and vigour. He resigned in 1901 owing to a breakdown in 
' See the Third Report of the F^ducational Kndowments (Scotland) Commission, 1880, p. 202. 



xxii INTRODUCTION 

health ; and in sober truth he had expended in the interval more than enough 
energy, and undergone more than enough toil, to suffice for an ordinary working 
lifetime. As no detail was too minute to engage his attention, so no scheme 
was too ambitious or too Utopian to captivate his imagination. He accom- 
plished great things because he aimed at even greater things, and, in so far as 
he was compelled to leave his ideals unrealised, they have to a great extent 
been attained under his successors. In breaking the back of his life's work, so 
to speak, he was truly fortunate in having associated with him at that time, 
as Secretary to the Directors, Mr. James Avon Clyde. The combination of 
two such agents — the one to generate, the other to regulate, the necessary 
power — was more than almost any Board could have withstood, and the 
Directors, to do them justice, though disposed by nature to a cautious and 
conservative policy, were in no mood to be obstructive. With surprisingly 
little difficulty Mr. Mackenzie induced them to embark upon projects and to 
incur financial responsibilities the mere contemplation of which but a few 
years before would have seemed an act of insanity. It was, moreover, one of 
the most remarkable features in the new Rector that, unlike many ardent and 
impetuous spirits, he would always listen attentively to the other side and 
carefully weigh every objection that could be formulated against his pro- 
posals. He was thus able to work in perfect harmony with men whose 
temperament and habit of mind were the very antithesis of his own, while a 
hidden and unexpected fund of patience enabled him to await with tolerable 
composure the maturing of his designs. He could indeed afford to wait, for 
his prognostications as to what the Board would inevitably be constrained to 
authorise and to do were almost always verified. 

It is impossible in this place to give a full account of what Mr. Mackenzie 
achieved, but the following points may be briefly adverted to : — 

1. He restricted the size of the classes to a maximum of twenty-five or 
thirty. This, of course, involved a considerable increase in the staff. 

2. He confirmed the system of promotion by merit which Dr. Harvey had 
reluctantly introduced. He also made promotion terminal ; but annual has 
now replaced terminal promotion, experience having demonstrated that the 
latter has often an unsettling effect. 

3. He made cricket and football compulsory throughout the school, a step 
which rendered necessary the acquisition of an additional field at Inverleith 
Place, and which has had a highly beneficial effect upon the school athletics. 
' If I were asked,' he wrote, ' what was the most dangerous occupation for a 
boy's hours of leisure, I should at once name loafing.' ^ 

4. He succeeded in raising the average age for leaving school, and invested 
the most suitable of the older boys with a certain amount of disciplinary power 
by creating the ' Ephors.' 

5. He did much to widen and diversify the life of the school, as by 

' Rei-tor's Report to the Directors, 1889. 



INTRODUCTION xxiii 

encouraging tlie study and practice of music, of which he was himself an 
enthusiastic amateur, and by re-establishing the school library, which, origin- 
ally a feature of importance, had been allowed to dwindle away almost to 
vanishing point. He himself composed the music for an exceptionally 
felicitous and inspiring set of words by Mr. Henry Johnstone, which has 
firmly established itself as the school song, and which will be found later on 
in this volume. 

6. He was instrumental in erecting in 1899 two large boarding-houses (a 
third has since been added), in each of which a master was installed to have 
the charge of about five-and-twenty boys, and he introduced a regulation 
that no boy who does not live with his parents or a relative shall attend 
the Academy except from the house of a master who holds the Directoi's' 
licence to take boarders. This rule is only relaxed in very special cases by 
leave of the Directors, granted upon good cause shown, and has proved a 
most salutary innovation. 

7. He tightened the reins of discipline, which had become unduly slack. 
The old rule against leaving school in school hours was to be strictly enforced. 
Boys were to return to school after the holidays on the prescribed day and at 
the prescribed hour, or the Rector would know the reason why. Similarly, 
they were to remain at school until the last moment of every term (for the 
session was now officially divided into three ' terms '). They were no longer to 
come dropping casually in a day or two after the appointed commencement of 
work, or to drift casually away a day or two before its appointed termination, 
merely to suit the convenience or the caprice of parents. Every one must 
understand that rules were made to be obsei-ved and not to be broken. To 
facilitate the proper exercise of control, an official school head-dress was to be 
worn by every boy. This was to be a glengarry with the badge of Homer's 
head. Later on, a blue cap with the laurel wreath encircling a monogram 
embroidered on it in white was introduced as an alternative. Thus an 
Academy boy would be known everywhere by head-mark. 

In this long list of reforms those embraced under the two last headings 
were probably of the highest immediate importance, for they grappled with 
some of the peculiar difficulties attendant upon the management of a day 
school. To conduct a boarding school is, in one sense, a comparatively simple 
affair. The boys are yours, body and soul, during term. And the vigilant 
parent is far away. Unpleasantness may arise, and may even be the sub- 
ject of correspondence, but a journey has to be faced before the parent 
can descend upon you like a whirlwind, there is time to cool down, and 
everything has blown over before the arrival of the holidays. The pro- 
blem before the day-school master, on the other hand, is clearly much more 
complicated and less patient of solution. Dual control is always a delicate 
matter. He has to fit in his own authority with that of the domestic ruler, 
and the two must not clash. In so far as they overlap they must coincide, 



xxiv INTRODUCTIOX 

or there will be trouble. But the parent, after all, belongs to a species of 
which the time-honoured differentia is the possession of reason, nor would it 
be safe to affirm that his affection for his offspring is always unenlightened. 
It is bare justice to a much scolded class of the community to record that the 
vast majority cheerfully acquiesced in, if they did not positively welcome, 
the ' screwing up ' of school discipline for which Mr. Mackenzie was responsible. 
A few, who ought to have known better, may have grumbled because they 
were not allowed to take Jamie or Bobbie away from school at odd times 
every now and then to run messages or to meet trains. But these were rare 
exceptions. Uniform experience has shown that the school flourishes in 
proportion to the degree of firmness with which the code of rules and regulations 
is enforced. 

Mr, Mackenzie's labours speedily bore good fruit. He gathered round him 
a body of eager and competent masters, mostly from beyond the Tweed, and 
well versed in the best traditions of the English public schools. Their loyal 
co-operation was invaluable, and so was that of the existing staff. Nothing 
could have been more honourable to all concerned than the good understand- 
ing and good feeling (often ripening into a much warmer emotion) which 
were immediately established between the old type of master and the ne^ . 
Mr. Mackenzie seemed to breathe into aH a portion of his own sanguine and 
invincible spirit — to impart to the whole school the secret of a new life, which 
still beats with undiminished vigour. The number of boys in attendance 
went up by leaps and bounds. Additional buildings had to be run up for 
their accommodation. But for one temporary check, due to a substantial rise 
in the fees which became necessary in 1896, the numbers have never gone back. 
In recent years they have equalled, if not surpassed, the tale of the most 
prosperous sessions under Archdeacon Williams. 

One further observation must be made with regard to Mr. Mackenzie. 
Though not an old Academy boy, he had steeped himself in the history of the 
Academy both written and oral, and he set himself systematically to revive the 
school patriotism of old boys which, for one reason or another, had in many 
instances grown languid. In 1896 he instituted the excellent practice of hold- 
ing a ' reunion ' of old boys at intervals of a few years, the reunion culmin- 
ating in a dinner in the Hall of the Academy. But such gatherings were 
merely indications of a more important movement. In 1900, after protracted 
negotiations between the representatives of the various interests concerned, 
the Academical Club was reconstituted upon a new and wider basis, so that it 
now comprehends the Cricket, and with it the Football, Club, and has a general 
membership of nearly 1200. Had it not been for the Academical Club this 
volume would never have been issued, and had it not been for the spade-work 
indispensable to its reconstruction, the Endowment Fund — always a favourite 
scheme of Mr. Mackenzie's — might never have taken practical shape. Opened 
in 1904, that fund amounted in a few years to upwards of £8000, and it has 



INTRODUCTION ^. xxv 

enabled the Directors to face without flinching such important undertak- 
ings as the erection of a science theatre and of the new dining-hall already 
referred to. Academicals will please note that the fund is still open, and some 
may perhaps be moved to emulate the generosity of such pious donors as 
Mr. George Grabble, to whom the school owes a fives court and a handsome 
library ; Mr. William Ewing Gilmour, to whom the school owes a fine pavilion 
at the New Field ; and Mr. Patrick Johnston Ford, to whom the school owes 
the redecoration (to its immense advantage) of the old Hall, and the erection 
therein of an organ which specifically, and most appropriately, commemorates 
Mr. Mackenzie. 

The recent history of the Academy must be dismissed in a few sentences. 
Mr. Reginald Carter succeeded Mr. Mackenzie in 1901, and left in 1910 upon 
his appointment to the Headmastership of Bedford Grammar School. He was a 
strong man in every sense of the expression, and neither parents nor boys were 
long in learning that behind that benevolent and imperturbable smile there 
lurked a will of iron. He followed out the broad lines of policy which his 
predecessor had laid down with only a few variations in detail, and the 
same course has been pursued by Mr. Reginald Herbert Ferard, who reigns 
in his stead. Many years, it may be hoped, will elapse ere it becomes proper to 
sum up the results of Mr. Ferard's Rectorship. Thus much, however, it is per- 
missible to point out, that under both Mr. Carter and Mr. Ferard it became quite 
a usual occurrence for boys to win scholarships at the English Universities 
direct from the Academy — a feat seldom, if ever, performed even in the palmy 
days of Dr. Hodson. Let it also be put on record that five or six years ago there 
was formed an Officers' Training Corps, without which no school is nowadays 
complete, and that, upon the first occasion of entering for the competition, the 
Academy eight won the Ashburton Shield at Bisley in 1911. This notable 
triumph coincided with successes almost equally notable in football and cricket ; 
for in these the Academy of to-day appears to retain much of the prowess which 
distinguished it of yore. 

In this outline of the story of our Alma Mater much has of necessity been 
omitted. It has been impossible, for example, to speak of the strange case 
of the dux of 1841, erroneously believed to have perished a few years later 
beneath the blue waters of the Danube ; of the visit of the young Prince of 
Wales (afterwards King Edward vii.) to the Exhibition in 1859 ; of the hot 
water into which Dr. Hodson plunged on that occasion by referring to the 
change for the better which had taken place under his sway in the external 
appearance, manners, and behaviour of the boys, and by alluding to the ' reign 
of terror ' which had formerly existed in one of the classes of the Academy 
(believed to be that of Mr. Ferguson, by this time Professor of Humanity in 
the King's College, Aberdeen) ; of the ' round-crowned hat ' episode, in which 
Dr. Hodson was involved in the 'sixties ; of the memorable performance of the 



xxvi INTRODUCTION 

Antigone in 1881, of which the entire credit was due to Mr. Islay Ferrier 
Burns, then a master at the Academy and now a tutor at Westminster 
College in Cambridge ; and of other dramatic performances which took 
place in Mr. Mackenzie's and Mr. Carter's times. These and sundry other 
topics not wholly destitute of interest must await the good pleasure of the 
vates sacer, whose constitutional habit of procrastination still delays the 
appearance of a full-dress history of the Academy, but who hopes before 
long to mend his ways. 

It would have been even more inviting to linger on the many trains of 
thought and association which such a survey as has been attempted is apt to 
suggest. More especially would it have been delightful to expatiate upon the 
older generation of masters. Robert Hamilton, Writing and Arithmetic Master 
(1826-52) ; James Gloag, Mathematical Master (1824-64) ; Archibald Carmichael 
(1824-47), James Cumming (1826-46), John Trotter (1845-61), D'Arcy Wentworth 
Thompson (1852-64), Henry Weir (1853-81), James Carmichael, son of the fore- 
said Archibald, and himself an old Academy boy (1857-94), James Clyde 
(1861-78) — all Classical Masters ; Alexander Gilmour, Writing and Arithmetic 
Master(1851-4and 1868-1904); and John Sturgeon Mackay, Mathematical Master 
(1866-1904) — such names are full of significance, not merely for old Academy 
boys, but also, for all who take an interest in the history of education in Scot- 
land. These men were by no means cast in the same mould ; a striking and 
distinctive individuality was indeed their most marked feature ; each in his 
way may be said to have been something of a ' character,' if we eliminate the 
depreciatory, while retaining the affectionate, connotation of the word in such 
a connexion. But, one and all, they were unmistakably formed of the clay 
which alone produces good men and true. Strong, manly, upright, indepen- 
dent, devoted to duty, well found, for the most part, in learning, ' con- 
sumers of their own smoke,' they form a group of which any institution 
in Christendom might be proud, and which any educational system may be 
deemed exceptionally fortunate in having produced. And they kindled in 
countless pupils a warmth of regard and affection which the lapse of years 
has proved powerless to extinguish. 

Something, too, might have been written in praise of the famous men who 
have gone before us — of the scholars, the divines, the statesmen, the lawyers, the 
doctors, the public servants, the merchants, the sailors, and the soldiers, to 
whom the Academy was as a nursing mother. But, after all, their names and 
the outline of their careers will be found in this Register, and many of these 
names will readily occur to every reader. There are some men for whom the 
most fascinating occupation of their leisure moments consists in the desultory 
perusal of ' Whitaker ' or ' Oliver and Boyd.' Let us trust that all old Academy 
boys, together with some others who can lay no claim to that distinction, will 
find an even more potent spell in the succeeding pages, while they skip 
from entry to entry, as one familiar name calls up another, and obediently

follow whithersoever their fancy may lead. The fare set before the reader 
is varied, abundant, and appetising. Let him, therefore, fall to with a will, 
but let him not forget to murmur by way of a preliminary grace the pious 
aspiration : 

' FLOREAT ACADEMIA.' 

J. H. M. 
Edinburgh, May 1914. 



' It is one of the most benign influences of learning and literature 
that they can unite those whom nothing else can. And so it is 
pleasing to find that in the foundation of this our school the great 
Sir Walter joined heart and hand with Cockburn and Jeffrey and 
others, to whom in most other public questions he had stood in 
life-long antagonism. It was a pure and generous impulse which 
made these great men, in the prime of their powers, pause to think 
of the coming generation, and to provide for them what they hoped 
might prove some better learning than they themselves had enjoyed. 
. . . But to produce great scholars is not the only or even the chief 
work of a large school — rather to train boys so that they shall 
become upright, honourable, intelligent, industrious men in all the 
walks of life. Tried by this test, I believe the Academy has 
abundantly fulfilled its mission.' 

Principal Shairp, at the Jubilee Dinner, 1874.

EDITORIAL NOTE 



It will interest readers to be informed that the Frontispiece has been drawn by 
Mr. William Hole, R.S.A., R.P.E. Reference to this outstanding feature of the 
Register could not be made in the Preface, as although Mr. Hole most cordially 
entertained the desire of the Academical Club that he should furnish a Frontispiece, 
and generously undertook to do so if possible, it was doubtful until almost the last 
moment if the pressure of his other engagements would permit him to execute 
the work. 

The sincere thanks of the Academical Club are due to Mr. Hole for his gift of 
this admirable etching.
