Titular Professors
At a meeting of the Senate on 7 May 1964, the Principal informed the Senate that "...since the creation of chairs otherwise than by Ordinance had proved to be impracticable the Court had decided to secure the object desired by the introduction of Titular Professorships, to be conferred on members of the University in recognition of personal distinction". The Principal submitted the names of six persons on whom the University Court proposed, on the advice of a committee of members of Senate, to confer the title of Professor in respect of the posts which they held as Reader or Lecturer. The Senate approved the procedure.
