2 The Members' Prizes were originally founded in 1752. They were four in number, and were
awarded to Bachelors of Arts who were not of sufficient standing to take their M.A. degree.
From 1827 to 1870 two were given to Undergraduates and two to Bachelors of Arts. Since 1870
only two prizes have been given each year, one for a Latin Essay and one for an English. They
are open to all members of the University under the standing of M.A.
