Biography of Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang graduated MA 1914 and as was a very successful student, becoming Prizeman in Professor John Phillimore's Latin class in his first year and he gained a first class certificate in Greek. In his second year, 1910-1911, he studied Political Economy in addition to Latin and Greek, earning a first class certificate in Greek.

Arthur took Moral Philosophy in the session 1911-1912, the only subject which ever required a resit. Otherwise he proceeded easily to Intermediate Honours in the Classics (1st class Hons) and Greek and Roman History with Greek prose in his final year. In 1912, however, he sat Oxford entrance exams and won an honorary exhibition to New College. He left Glasgow for Oxford, returning in 1914 to graduate MA.
