Edwards Lectureship in Palaeography and Diplomatic

Description

The Edwards Lectureship in Palaeography and Diplomatic was founded in 1943. It was endowed by the bequest of John Edwards (1846-1937), a scholar and antiquarian who had been awarded an LLD by the University in 1919.

Until 1957, Edwards' endowment was used to provide instruction in the named branches of study in the Humanity, History and Scottish History departments. Subsequently, it was applied to provide instruction by a lecturer in the History Department in any year in which students offer themselves, and to make provision for a periodic lecture in which new palaeolographical material is used.
