WILLIAM PATON KER
THE Committee desire to add a tribute of their sincere appreciation of the late Professor W. P. Ker, more especially here in connexion with the volumes of Essays and Studies, of which he edited Volume III and had nearly completed the editing of this present Volume IX before his sudden death at Macugnaga in July. In addition he wrote Articles in Volume I (Browning), Volume VI (The Humanist Ideal), and Volume VIII (Hazlitt).
President of the Association in 1915, a VicePresident for ten years, and a Member of the Committee, he rendered very valuable service to the Association both as Author of the Pamphlets on Romance (10); The Teaching of English at the Universities (26); and The Eighteenth Century (35), and by lecturing frequently to the Central Body and the various Branches.
Great as is the loss of so distinguished a Master of so many Literatures, it is a lasting honour to the Association to have had his name on its List of Officers.
