    SPEECH BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

    The following speech was delivered by the Public Orator in a Congregation
    held on Saturday, 31 July, in presenting for the Honorary Degree of Master
    of Arts

    Mr ZAIN AZAHARI BIN ZAINAL ABIDIN

    Octo iam lustra sunt ex quo hic quem produco sese amicum et Academiae et
    praecipue Preli nostri cum firmissimum tum impigerrimum praebet. eo enim
    tempore primum venerabilis illa arbor, quae per totum orbem terrarum tot
    protulit ramos, in Malaya quae tum appellabatur, Malaysia hodie appellatur,
    surculum quendam tenerum inserebat; de quo cum poeta suavissimo P.Vergilio
    dicere possimus,

    nec longum tempus, et ingens

    exiit ad caelum ramis felicibus arbos

    miraturque novas frondes et non sua poma.

    cui et nascenti et crescenti hic opem multifariam contulit, sive aedes idoneae
    inveniendae locandaeque erant, sive benevolentia confirmanda qua inter
    mercatores indigenas stabiliretur hoc novum negotium, sive ipsi rei publicae
    gubernatores conciliandi, qui cum idcirco niterentur ut quantum fieri poterat
    in omni mercaturae genere cives sui summam exercerent potestatem, tum hoc
    praesidente, suadente, totam rem summa sapientia, summa auctoritate
    moderante, Prelo nostro et agendi et crescendi libertatem libenter
    concesserunt. quod hodie nulli secundum floret, libros emittit doctrinae
    saluberrimae refertos; neque civitatis rectores ignorant quam necessarias
    partes in pueris inque hominibus iunioribus educandis formandisque agant
    Preli ministri operarii editores. vir est hic inter suos eminentissimus, qui ita
    in vita publica auctoritatem habet ut omnes simultates, omnem partium
    acerbitatem defugiat; nobis vero otium suum liberalissime impendit homo valde
    Oxoniensis, nam et pietate probatissima iamdudum noster est, et cum ipsi
    acciderit ut quamvis in Universitatem admissus tamen inter nos iurisprudentiae
    studere non potuerit, nihilominus et frater et filius huc venerunt, quos
    gradum iam adeptos hic nunc adparet ut rite adscitus subsequatur. talem enim
    virum cum aliquo saltem pro tot tamque insignibus beneficiis munere donare
    cupiamus, togae nostrae honore insignire destinavimus.

    Praesento virum de Academia optime meritum Zain Azahari bin Zainal Abidin,
    pietate praeclarum, benevolentia insignem, qui Prelum nostrum consilio
    auctoritate labore indefesso sustentavit, ut admittatur honoris causa
    ad gradum Magistri in Artibus.

    Paraphrase

    Mr Zain Azahari has shown himself for more than forty years to be a true
    friend and an active supporter of the University and in particular of the
    University Press. In 1958 the venerable tree of the Press, which has sprouted
    so many branches throughout the world, was first putting down a new growth
    in what was then called Malaya, and is now called Malaysia: an off-shoot of
    which we might say, quoting the great poet Virgil describing a freshly grafted
    plant,

    Nor was there long to wait: the mighty tree

    Shot heavenward, itself surprised to see

    Fresh foliage and fruit unknown before.

    (Virgil, Georgics 2.80-82)

    In its birth and in coming to maturity the Kuala Lumpur branch of the Press
    received great help from Mr Zain Azahari, in such important matters as
    securing suitable buildings, and generally in establishing a required local
    presence for the Press in Malaysia. He played a central part, as Chairman and
    adviser, in dealing with the consequences of the Government's policy of
    encouraging Malay owned enterprises, and his advice and skilful management
    were vital in securing for the Press its present flourishing and successful
    position. In particular, the Malaysian Government has recognised the important
    role of the Press and its employees in educational publishing. He is a
    prominent man in Malaysian society, but he has kept clear of the bitterness
    of party politics. He has been most generous in giving of his time to the
    Press, and indeed we think of him as already an honorary Oxonian. He has
    proved his attachment to Oxford, and although he was himself unable to take
    up the place offered to him here to read Law, his son and his brother have
    both come and studied here for Oxford degrees. He now follows them. Wishing
    to confer a mark of recognition in return for his great services, we have
    resolved to confer upon him an honorary degree.

    I present Zain Azahari bin Zainal Abidin, one of Oxford's benefactors,
    outstanding for his devotion and distinguished for his active benevolence, who
    has favoured the University Press with his advice, his support, and his hard
    work, for admission to the honorary degree of Master of Arts.

    As part of its system of rolling reviews of departments and faculties every
    ten years, the General
    Board has established a committee to review the Pitt Rivers Museum. This
    review follows the
    recently completed review of the School of Anthropology, which examined the
    contributions of the
    Pitt Rivers Museum to the academic activities of the school but did not carry
    out a full assessment
    of its museum functions. The report of the review of the School of
    Anthropology has been
    submitted to the General Board and will be considered by it early in
    Michaelmas Term.

    The terms of reference of the review of the Pitt Rivers Museum are as follows:
    `To review the
    organisation, staffing, and management of the Pitt Rivers Museum, its
    relationship with other
    bodies (including those in the School of Anthropology), its roles in curation,
    teaching, and
    research, and its obligations to its local, national, and international public; and
    to make
    recommendations.'

    The review committee is chaired by Mr Laurence Whitehead, and the other
    members are Dr C.
    Gosden, University Lecturer/Curator of the Pitt Rivers Museum; Professor Ruth
    B. Phillips,
    Director, Museum of Anthropology, University of British Columbia; Dr Tristram
    Besterman, Director,
    Manchester Museum; Professor P. Kirch, Department of Anthropology,
    University of California;
    Professor J.B. Mack, Keeper of Ethnography, the British Museum; and
    Professor M.J.J. Rowlands,
    Professor of Material Culture, University College, London.

    The committee intends to hold its meetings in Michaelmas Term, and to submit
    its report to the
    General Board as soon as possible.

    The committee has invited comments from all members of the Subfaculty of
    Anthropology, staff of
    the Pitt Rivers Museum, and other collaborators of the museum. Any other
    members of the
    University and members of the public who wish to submit comments in
    confidence on any issues
    covered by the committee's terms of reference or any related matters are
    welcome to send them
    to the secretary of the review committee, Dr A.M. Knowland, Oriental Institute,
    Pusey Lane, Oxford

    interests in the history of medicine: Green College has close links with the
    Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, which is
    developing a new programme in the history of tropical medicine and infectious
    diseases.

    The Research Fellowship is non-stipendiary and may be held in conjunction
    with another appointment. Applicants who are not already funded for their
    research may be eligible to apply to the Wellcome Trust for an award in the
    history of medicine in association with this fellowship. The fellow may also be
    offered affiliation with the Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine in Oxford.

    The fellowship is tenable for a maximum of three years and provides access
    to all college facilities, dining rights, and an academic expenses allowance of
    £250 per annum. The fellowship will be available from Michaelmas Term
    1999 and selection will take place as soon as possible.

    The fellowship is open to graduates of any university who are undertaking (or
    proposing to undertake) postdoctoral (or equivalent) research in the
    University. The college is looking for evidence of serious interest in and
    capacity
    for a research contribution, to be made alongside others
    engaged in the history of medicine in Oxford and which will further develop
    the college's interests in this field.

    An application form, and further notes for applicants, are available from the
    Warden's Secretary (telephone:

    Joan and Richard Doll Clinical Tutorial Fellowship

    Green College intends to appoint a Tutorial Fellow who will be responsible for
    the provision of additional clinical teaching to Oxford University clinical
    medical students who are members of the college.
    The appointment will be for two years initially and may be renewable for a
    further two years. The fellowship will be available from Michaelmas Term and
    selection will take place as soon as possible. It may be held in conjunction
    with another appointment which need not necessarily be a tenured clinical
    appointment. We are looking for a clinician who is actively involved in patient
    care in Oxford and possesses an enthusiasm for clinical teaching. Candidates
    from a wide range of backgrounds will be
    considered.
    The tutorial fellowship is a non-governing body fellowship which provides
    access to all college facilities, dining rights, and an honorarium of £2,000
    per annum.
    The purpose of the appointment is to strengthen the support and guidance
    the college provides for its clinical students, particularly in the form of
    bedside tutorials for first-year students and revision tutorials for third years.
    The tutorial fellow will work closely with the Senior Tutor and with the many
    clinical fellows who are already providing pastoral and academic support for
    the college's clinical students. It is anticipated that the tutorial fellow will
    commit about four to six hours per week to these
    responsibilites.

    Application forms, and further notes for applicants, are available from the
    Warden's Secretary (telephone: Oxford (2)74775, e-mail:
