CUS417/107.17


Fonds Number: 
P417
Abstract: 

Osler indicates that the student body and not the graduates elects the Rector. Carlyle was the last non-political candidate to run for it. He hopes to get the vote of the medical students, and the women's vote. Mentions that feelings run high and political parties are well organized. The issue is very uncertain. Osler thanks Keen for his offer and for that of Sanderson. Civilities. Duhring is here and he had been talking books to him all day. The college should nurse well-to-do professional waifs like Mears and Duhring, because it is from such well handled donors that big bequests sometimes come.
