Yet the year has brought an ever deepening sense of loss in the death of Associate Professor Sophie Jewett which was announced to the Trustees last November. It will be gratifying to all to know that there are to be visible tokens of her connection with the College.

Her family proposes a memorial gift which shall be devoted to books such as she loved, for the service of the students- the department of which she was a member, with other friends, proposes to fill one of the windows in the angel transept of the Chapel- one of her devoted students is founding a scholarship in her name- one of her close friends on the Faculty, a small library of choice books, to be placed in College Hall for the use of all the students, and the department has arranged a memorial library. So we have her name and her work closely associated with the future life of the College, as it has been in the past.A suitable memorial to another gifted woman and beloved teacher has been completed during the past year.

Through the generous co-operation of colleagues and former students of the late Professor Clara Eaton Cumming-s the collection of lichens formed by Miss Cummings and purchased by the Trustees as a gift to the College after her death, is now enclosed in a suitable mahogany cabinet, which occupies a dignified position in the rooms of the department of botany in Stone Hall. The cabinet bears a bronze tablet suitably inscribed, and the collection thus installed forms an appropriate and lasting memorial to one who was throughout life devoted to the advance of botanical science, and who reached distinction in a special department of the subject.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
