Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 13. September 24, 1947

Mr. Hearnshaw is Farewelled by Philosophy Dept

Mr. Hearnshaw is Farewelled by Philosophy Dept.

On Tuesday, September 9, from 4 to 5 p.m., the Psych. Lab. presented a pleasant and almost gala appearance to the surprised eyes of past and present senior students of philosophy, accustomed as they were to seeing it under more sober conditions.

In the presence of about forty people—staff, students, and ex-studenta—Mr. Hearnshaw of the Philosophy Department was bade "God speed and good luck" on the occasion of his departture to take up the position of Professor of Psychology at Liverpool University. After we partook of coffee and cakes from flower-furnished tables, Mr. Congalton asked Miss E. D. Maysmor to speak on behalf of present senior students, and then Mr. Frank Simpson spoke for philosophy honours and past senior students. Both accented what was obvious to all who had studied under Mr. Hearnshaw—-his enthusiasm for his work, his invaluable help and friendliness to students, his great ability, and his enviable reputation both in the College and in the community.

A presentation of some books was made, after which Mr. Hearnshaw thanked everyone, referring to the happy years he had Bpent here, and voicing the hope that he might visit us in a few years' time, when he hoped to Bee the Philosophy and Psychology Departments separated, and thus organised on more satisfactory lines.

To any who were likely to be in England during the next few years, he issued an invitation to "come up to Liverpool," where they would probably be entertained in the New Zealand Room that he and Mrs. Hearnshaw were already planning for their new home.
