Prof. Rankine Brown To Retire This Year

Prof. Rankine Brown To Retire This Year

At the end of this year Professor Rankine-Browne will retire. His long record of service to the College dates from its very foundation when lectures were held in the Wellington Girls' College, and throughout the forty-five years of the College's existence his ability as a teacher and his kindness as a man has gained him the respect of all who have had the fortune to know him.

It is quite properly felt by a large number of past and present students that a suitable recognition of the regard in which the Professor is held should be made on his retirement. The Executive has, therefore, set up a committee to consider ways and means to achieve this end. After consultation with representative past students it is agreed that his name might be best kept alive in the College by the establishment of a prize which will bear the Professor's name.

For this purpose subscriptions are to be called for, later in the term, from members of the College. We may rest assured that a liberal response will be forthcoming.
