Gray gained his Blue. T he Boat Club celebrated its centenary by a May Week Ball. Cricket. Captain, G. R. Brand. Secretary, H. S. Wigfield. We had a poor match record, almost entirely owing to the bad fielding of an otherwise good side. The second XI failed to win any games. ¡ Rugby. Captain, I. C. Fletcher. Secretary, D. N. Matthews. Although we won most of the friendly matches through united team work, St Catharine's, the ultimate winners, were too strong for us in the first round of the cup ties (31-6).

Y the death of the President the College and University have suffered a grievous loss. He has been loved and admired by every generation of Queens' men since he came to the College twenty-five years ago ; and it would be impertinent here to attempt any appreciation of his personality, well known as it ¡is to every member of the Club. Some facts of his life are recalled below. Thomas Cecil Fitzpatrick, the youngest son of the Rev. R. W. Fitzpatrick, Vicar of Holy Trinity, Bedford, was born on August 27, 1861. He was educated at Bedford School and Christ's College, Cambridge. He was placed in the First Class in Part I of the Natural Sciences Trip~s in 1883, and in Part II (Physics) in 1885, and afterwards served for many years as one of Sir Cavendish Laboratory.

J. J.

Thomson's demonstrators at the

A .t Christ's he was successively scholar,

fellow, and, after taking orders in I 888, chaplain. He was Dean of Christ's from 1890 until he was elected President of Queens' in 1906. Perhaps it was his chief pride at Queens' that he knew personally every resident member of the Colleg~, and that he was always ready to help as far as he could any one, senior or junior, who came to him. In the administration of the College his unusual business ability played a great part in re-organizing the finances and guiding the general policy of 'Queens'. College buildings were greatly loved by him :


under his

inspiration the Lodge and the Old Court were repaired and restored, the restoration of the south and southern half of the east sides of the court being a gift from him to the College to commemorate his twentieth year as President.

The Dokett

Building was also erected during his presidency.

Finally, he

was the prime mover in the foundation of the Queens' College Club in I 912, and has presided over it ever since, fostering it and taking great pleasure in its steadilr mcreasm~ size and.

prosperity. In 1912 the President married Miss Annie Cook. Mrs Fitzpatrick's kindly and generous hospitality has endeared her to us, and we offer her our deep sympathy in her loss. The President's work for the University cannot be described here.

For many years he has played a leading part in its

administration, on Syndicates and Boards and at the Council of the Senate, where his vigour and acut~ness were of the greatest value.

He served twice as Vice-Chancellor, in 1915 and

1928. At the beginning of September the President was in excellent health ; but he underwent an operation during that month, and died suddenly on Wednesday, October 28, The funerai was held on October 31, when the College Chapel was filled to overflowing by members of the College and other personal friends of the President. There was a simultaneous memorial service in Great St Mary's Church.

Queens' College


QUEENS' HOUSE. THE first event to chronicle about Queens' House is that, .to our regret, the Rev. E. M. Vanston resigne~ the post of Head in the summer and left after Camp. Although we wereand are-anxious to have a Queens' man once more as our Missioner, because he would know our College life from inside, yet we were fortunate in havin g a keen man to step into the vacancy in Lieutenant Bache. He is a Lieutenant in the Naval Reserve and has served in the Merchant Service for many years. Twelve months ago he left the sea , to devote himself to social work and came to live at the Alice Barlow House in Rotherhithe: so he became interested in Queens' House and took a part in our work, about wh ich he is enthusiastic. He is a layman- the first we have had at the House for twenty years-but is attached to Christ · Church where the Rev. Leslie Hills of Queens' is Vica r. We are confident that ne will do well at Queens' House and, when he gets to know us, at Queens'. Mr Vanston left the work in a healthy condi tion. The Scout Troop contains about 80 Scouts and Cubs, thou gh with rather a deficiency of older boys: there is a small Club for boys who do not wish to be Scouts: and there is a larger Club for men. The Summer Camp was held in the grounds of Marlborough School, by kind permission: a few, though too few, Queens' men went to help, and in t!,.e wet weather their help was doubly va_luable.

QUEENS' COLLEGE CLUB. DURING the year, July I, r930-June 30, 1931, 68 new members joined. The annual meeting was held in the Combination Room on Jun.e 20, 1931, the President in the chair. It was agreed to invest· £100 in 3½ per: cent Conversion Loan. Messrs S. H. Day and P. J. Oldfield and Rev. R. Broxton were re-elected, and Mr H. G. Lemmon was elected, to serve on the Committee,
