The Proposed College of Physical Science at Newcastle-Upon-Tyne


A FEW weeks ago* we gave some account of the initiation of a movement in the North of England, having for its object the establishment of a College of Physical Science in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. As the Executive Committee appointed at the public meeting had only then begun its work, the details entered upon were given as mere indications of the general form the institution might be expected to take. A letter from the Master of University College, Durham, which appeared in our columns more recently, added somewhat to our information, and a circular which has been issued, with commendable promptitude, by the Executive, is now before us, representing the views of the promoters as modified in committee.
