Today, alongside students of Computing Science and Psychology, Mathematics students graduate and we have chosen a couple of mathematically gifted graduates from 1912 to feature.
Alexander Gray won 3rd place in his Ordinary level Mathematics class and 2nd prize for his Mathematics Honours and Advanced Honours classes. Moreover, he achieved three first class certificates in the subject. He not only excelled in Maths but also picked up first class certificates for Natural Philosophy (Physics) and Chemistry. He was strong in Humanities subjects too and won a ‘special prize for prose’ for Professor Philimore’s section of the Humanities class: a student talented in many fields!
Annie Harriet Hunter (MA1912) also appears in the prize lists for mathematics and was 3rd place in her class in 1910. She was one of 23 female students studying the subject in a class of 53. In the academic session 1910-11, there were 129 female students of Mathematics subjects while there were 455 male students.
Congratulations to all of today’s graduates!
