Excerpt from The Inauguration of William Allan Neilson, as President of Smith CollegeAt a meeting of the Board of Trustees on September 14, 1917, William Allan Neilson, Professor of English at Harvard University, was elected President of Smith Col'ege, succeeding Marion LeRoy Burton, who had resigned to become President of the University of Minnesota. Though his inauguration was postponed until the following spring, President Neilson entered at once upon the duties of his office.William Allan Neilson was born in 1869 in the village of Doune, Perthshire, Scotland, where his father was schoolmaster. He prepared for college at Montrose Academy, and was graduated from Edinburgh University with honors in philosophy. Receiving a travelling fellowship in education, he crossed the Atlantic and spent some time visiting schools and colleges in the United States and Canada.During the next four years he was English Master in Upper Canada College, Toronto, a position he resigned in 1895 to enter the Graduate School of Harvard, where he held a Morgan Fellowship. After taking the degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Harvard, Mr. Neilson went to Bryn Mawr as Associate in English, returning to teach at Harvard in 1900. Four years later he was called to Columbia University, where he served as Adjunct Professor and Professor from 1904 to 1906, lecturing also in Barnard College. From 1906 to 1917 he was Professor of English at Harvard and Radcliffe.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
