Professor Henry Jackson, who died on Sunday at the age

of eighty-two, was one of the best known and best loved of the elder generation at Cambridge. He was a great scholar, and as a tutor of Trinity and as Regius Professor of Greek since 1906 he had done much to maintain the high standard of Cam- bridge classicism. He worked hard for university reform, he gave his hearty support to the women's colleges, and he strove to bring the public schools into closer touch with the University. It was his educational work that gained him the rare distinction of the Order of Merit. But older Cambridge men, and especially the members of his own college, will recall Professor Jackson as the genial host and wise counsellor.. He published little, but his influence on humane studies was sound and far-reaching.
