SCOTTISH UNIVERSITY PRINCIPALS
SIR,—May I be allowed to correct an error in Mr. Alan Dent's letter of last week, under the above heading?
My husband, Sir Donald MacAlister, was not "well over eighty " when Principal of Glasgow University. He was fifty-three years of age when he was appointed, and resigned when seventy-five. He died some four years later at seventy- nine.—Yours faithfully,
EDITH F. B. MACALISTER.
