Administrative history

In March 1907, a committee of former students and associates of Professor James Blyth, professor of Natural Philosophy 1880-1906, was established to raise funds for a memorial to him. The memorial eventually took the form of endowing the Blyth Memorial Prizes, and erecting a wall plaque in the College.
