The Master and Fellows desire to present a record of
all the living members of the College. They think that
men of all generations will be interested to know what
has become of contemporaries, with some of whom they
may have lost touch, while others again have served
and are serving in distinguished posts all over the world.
They have to thank the Trustees of the Balliol College
(1904) Endowment Fund, who have contributed largely
to the expenses of the undertaking ; Hkewise those who
have so freely given information ; and especially the
Senior Bursar, who has carried out the task of com-
pilation at the cost of much trouble.

PREFACE

There is not much necessity for an introduction in
a book of this kind, but the following facts may be
interesting to members of the College. The Register
represents a * Who 's Who ' of Balliol men now living,
containing details more particularly about their careers
at College and in the University. The alphabetical
arrangement was chosen as the most convenient for
reference.

At p. 381 will be found the Roll of Balliol College —
a chronological list of names taken from the admission
book.

Since the receipt of the returns I regret to say that the
College has lost some of its old members. Their names
have been retained and a note has been added recording
the date of death when known.

There are 2,412 names in the Register, and it will be
found that the professions of our old members may be
classified approximately as follows : Barristers, 388 ;
Clergymen, 254 ; Indian Civil Servants, 249 ; Readers,
Lecturers, Schoolmasters, Tutors, 197 ; Fellows of
Oxford Colleges, 175 ; Home Civil Servants, 129 ;
Professors, loi; Solicitors, 67; Members of Parliament,
56 ; Army, 51 ; Diplomacy, 51 ; Medical, 46 ; Colonial
Civil Servants, 42 ; Journahsts, 33 ; Ministers of
State, 22 ; Bankers, 19 ; Land Agents, 10 ; Heads
of Oxford Colleges, 9.

The above figures have not been checked in minute
detail, and they include members who have retired from
their respective posts or professions.

PREFACE

In a compilation like the Register there must be
mistakes. I have read all the manuscript and revised
the proofs, and for any inaccuracies I accept full responsi-
bility. Some omissions have been made at the request
of members when sending in their returns ; for other
omissions and any mistakes the excuse must be the
magnitude and difficulty of my task. Any corrections
or additions for insertion in a future edition will be
welcomed by the editor.

Thanks are due to my wife, who has helped me in all
the stages of this work; to my shorthand writer, Mr. G. B.
Whitaker, to whom I owe much for his untiring zeal and
especially for his accuracy ; and to Mr. Horace Hart, the
Controller of the Press, who has ever been ready with
valuable suggestions.

Especially are thanks due to those who have made
their returns with such promptitude and care. They
are the real authors of this book ; and its interest for
present and future generations will be found in the
distinguished careers of Balliol men set forth in the
following pages.
