"OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS"

SIR WILLIAM OSLER TO LECTURE IN NEW LECTURE HALL AT 8.15

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Sir William Osler LL.D. will give an illustrated lecture on the "Oxford University Press" in the New Lecture Hall this evening at 8.15 o'clock. Sir William Osler is a graduate of Trinity College, Toronto, and has received many degrees from American and English institutions including that of LL.D. from Harvard in 1904 when he was Ingersoll lecturer speaking on "Science and Immortality." At present he is Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University and Delegate of the Oxford University Press.

While the lecturer is best known as a great physician, he has always taken a deep and active interest in the Oxford Press which was founded in the fifteenth century and has grown to be an enormous plant with its own type-foundries and paper-mills. Lantern slides will aid in the description of the Press. The lecture is given by invitation of the Syndics of the Harvard University Press and will be open to the public although a few seats will be reserved
