SPEECHES BY THE PUBLIC ORATOR

The following speeches were delivered by THE PUBLIC ORATOR in a Congregation
held on Saturday, 30 September 1995, in presenting for the Honorary Degree of
Master of Arts

Mr Seth Dubin

Dominus illuminatio nostra, sic enim gloriari solemus, nos autem nisi ceteris
mortalibus illuminationem adferimus officio nostro et maiorum meritis impares nos
esse fateamur; quod Deus avertat et ipsi avertamus. Academiae fas non est soli
opibus suis incumbere, ceteris non impertire; novistis enim omnes Horatianum
illud, Nullus argento color est avaris abdito terris.[1] si
quis quaerat qua praecipue doctrinam largiamur, alii alia commemorent, unum certe
proferamus omnes: Prelum scilicet Academicum, cuius fama cum ipsius Universitatis
celebritate benevolo quodam certamine contendit, in quibusdam mehercle orbis
terrarum partibus nescio an antecellat. nos homines academici discimus docemus
legimus scribimus; libros exaramus doctrina et sapientia refertos; quaestio subit
toties repetita, Cui dono lepidum novum libellum? [2] cui,
nisi Preli Delegatis, exquisitis hominibus, quorum opera tantam librorum copiam
totius orbis lectoribus profusam concessamque esse gaudemus. sed ne illi quidem
soli ta ntum onus suscipere possunt; pergratum est igitur quod tales homines
exsistunt qualem produco. iuris consultus est et quidem occupatissimus, cuius
consilio freti res gerunt maximas Novi Eboraci cives, quibus tamen ita est adsidue
praesto ut otio abundare videatur, societatibus quae litteris et humanitati
inserviunt plurimis intersit, multis praesederit. cur Scientiarum Aulam nominem,
cur Fortunae Melioris Aediculam, cur Institutum Technologiae Hebraicum? quibus
omnibus hic e secretis fuit. propius ad rem accedemus si proclabimus quantum
Prelo nostro Novi Eboraci sito contulerit: cui tredecim abhinc annos fiduciarius
creatus amplissimum quemque civium suorum conciliavit, consilium et experientiam
suppeditavit, ita denique opem tulit in aedibus in urbe sua inveniendis
comparandis emendis ut negotium legum formulis hominumque factionibus
perplexissimum enodaret, quam optimis condicionibus solveret. quae aedes nuper
consecratae sunt, non sine pompa quadam inusitata. sed non deerat amari a liquid,
nam hic e magistratu decedit, onera deponit. cui decedenti tot labores rite
exsecuto Universitas Oxoniensis animo gratissimo togam suam tribuit, grates
meritas agit, omnia bona fausta felicia exoptat.

Praesento virum de Prelo Oxoniensi optime meritum Seth Dubin ut admittatur
honoris causa ad gradum Magistri in Artibus.

Paraphrase

The Lord is our light: that is the official boast of Oxford University. But we
should be failing in our duty and not meeting the standards of our predecessors,
if we did not bring light to others. That must not happen. The University must
not hoard its knowledge but share it. We remember the words of the poet Horace:
Silver has no lustre, if it stays buried in the greedy ground. If we are asked
how we share our treasures, there are many things to which we can point; but
we shall certainly not fail to mention the Oxford University Press, which for fame
and reputation has a friendly rivalry with the University itself, and indeed in
parts of the world is perhaps the better known of the two. We academics are
busy studying, teaching, reading, and writing. The old question then presents
itself, as it did to the poet Catullus: To whom shall I entrust my lovely new
book? The answer of course is: To those magnificent men, the Delegates of the
Oxford University Press, whose exertions have filled the world with masses of
learned and edifying publications. Even they, however, cannot manage without
help; and so their gratitude is great to such invaluable allies as Mr Dubin. He is
a partner in a very busy New York law practice, and yet he still finds time for
a multitude of cultural and educational activities. He has served as officer and
as president of many foundations: one could mention the New York Hall of
Science, A Better Chance, Inc., and the Hebrew Institute of Technology. More to
our present purpose is that he has been of very special help to Oxford
University Press, USA, of which he has been a Trustee since 1982. He has
introduced many highly valuable connections, he has given unstinting advice and
counsel, and in the difficult business of the purchasing and financing of the new
offices of the Press in New York he guided the complex negotiations through the
labyrinth of politics and regulations to completion on the best terms. The building
was inaugurated this summer with a procession of a special sort. The only sad
thing is that Mr Dubin is retiring as a Trustee. The University takes the
opportunity of thanking him publicly for all he has done and of expressing its
good wishes for the future.

I present Seth Dubin, a great friend of the University Press, for the honorary
degree of Master of Arts.

Mr WILLIAM TOYE

Subit vir non minus quam XLIV annos Prelo nostro adscriptus, qui in Universitate
Torontonensi educatus valde se Oxoniensem praebuit. o diem candido lapillo
notandum! hominibus academicis domi fere sedentibus, vitam umbratilem
degentibus, pergratum est aliquando imperi nostri provincias recensere, (liceat
enim mihi hoc audacius dicere), coloniarum gubernatores ante oculos habere
praesentes. hic quem produco inter Canadienses suos eminet, qui praemiis
insignibus iterum atque iterum adfectus Ordini Canadiensi nuper sit adlectus.
quaeritis fortasse quid libris producendis contulerit, qua in parte muneris illius
laborarit; haereo, nam libros conscripsit et quidem multorum generum sed omnes
praeclaros, quorum aliquot iuventutis studiosae in usum virginibus puerisque
destinavit, Divi Laurenti Fluvium, Capras Temlahamanas, Ignis Furtum, alios; idem
seniores non neglexit, patriae enim suae annales aureo eloquentiae flumine ornavit,
litterarum humaniorum Canadiensium enchiridion et edidit et re tractat, nuperrime
autem architecturae Canadiensis historiam, in Preli nostri officina designatam
sociisque conscribendam dispertitam, iam rude donatus absolvit. librorum
agnoscitote cum scriptorem tum editorem praeclarissimum; elegantiae membranarum
haud minus studiosus est noster, qui illo quoque nomine insignis curaverit ut sint
in libris `derecta plumbo et pumice omnia aequata', [1]
neque desint ea quae delicatissimus quisque lector exoptat. typographorum
societati iure praesedit, huius quoque generis est praemiis honoribusque
cumulatus. iam demum, credo, existimatis nihil relictum esse quod conficeret homo
quantumvis strenuus; erratis, nam ne tetigimus quidem permultos summae notae
libros quos hic officinae illi plus quam viginti annos praefectus aliis
conscribendos mandavit, quosque a tot scriptoribus exaratos emendavit correxit
iuris publici fecit, quorum multos praemiis insignioribus ornatos esse nemo est qui
nesciat, nemo quin gaudeat. cum quinque iam anni sint ex quo de praefectura
decessit, nihilominus et Musis et Prelo nostro vir impigerrimus servit et serviet,
qui in manibus habeat enchiridion suum iterum retractandum.

Praesento virum de Prelo optime meritum, librorum auctorem editorem
typographum summum, Gulielmum Toye, ut admittatur honoris causa ad gradum
Magistri in Artibus.

Paraphrase

I now present a man who was associated with the University Press for no less
than forty-three years; educated at the University of Toronto, he has shown
himself a true Oxford man. It is a most welcome opportunity for us academics,
most of whom live a rather cloistered life here, to be reminded of our far-flung
empire (if I may use that metaphor) and to see before us one of the governors
of its provinces. Mr Toye is a distinguished Canadian author, who has been
awarded many prizes and medals, and who recently was presented with the Order
of Canada. If asked what role he plays in the production of books, I hardly know
where to begin. He is a writer, and of books of many kinds; some of them are
meant for a youthful audience, such as The St Lawrence, The Mountain
Goats of Temlaham
, and The Fire Stealer. He also writes for an
older readership, perhaps most notably on Canadian history and literature. He is
the editor of The Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature. Most
recently he has brought out A History of Canadian Architecture,
which was commissioned and structured while he was at the Press but published
since his retirement. So much by way of indication of his eminence as author and
editor; but he is scarcely less distinguished in the area of the design of books,
sh owing the taste and ability to meet the most exacting demands in typography.
He has been President of the Society of Typographic Designers of Canada, and
he has received awards in that connection too. You are beginning to think that
we must have reached the end of the interests and achievements of a single man,
however energetic; not so, for we have not even touched on the impressive list
of books by other hands which as Editorial Director of Oxford University Press
in Canada for more than twenty years he commissioned, edited, emended, and
improved, on their way to publication. It is a source of pride to us all that so
many of these books have been honoured with distinguished awards. In the five
years since his retirement he has continued to write and to serve the Press:
among his current projects is a revised edition of his Oxford
Companion.

I present William Toye, a devoted employee and friend of the University Press,
distinguished as author, editor, and typographer, for the honorary degree of
Master of Arts.

WILDE LECTURERSHIP IN NATURAL AND
COMPARATIVE RELIGION

It is intended to elect in Michaelmas Term 1995 two lecturers to hold
office, one for the academic year beginning 1 October 1996, and one

invited by 15 November 1995, and should be sent to the Secretary to
the Wilde Electors, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1
2JD.

Candidates are requested to send a typed application including
an indication of the lectures they would propose to give, and any
statement that they may think it desirable to submit. The scheme of
lectures should be for one year, and applicants are asked to indicate
any specific preferences as regards period of tenure. Applicants
should name three referees and invite their referees to send
references to the Secretary to the Wilde Electors by the date given
above. On this occasion preference will, other things being equal, be
given to candidates proposing subjects in the field of Comparative
Religion.

The choice of the electors will not necessarily be limited to
those who apply.

The emoluments of each lecturership will be about £3,500 a
year, to be divided between stipend and expenses at the discretion of
the electors.

The Wilde Lecturer is not subject to an age limit, and is not
required to become a member of the Universities Superannuation
Scheme.

A.J. DOREY
Registrar

Extracts from the Decrees

The lecturer shall hold office for one or two or three years, as the
electors shall determine. A person may be appointed lecturer more
than once; but the same person shall not be appointed twice in
succession.

The lecturer shall deliver not less than eight lectures in each
academic year in Natural and Comparative Religion; these lectures to
be delivered either in the course of one term, or so that not less
than four be given in each of two terms.

For the purposes of this lecturership Comparative Religion shall
be taken to mean the modes of causation, rites, observance, and other
concepts involved in the major historical religions. Natural religion
shall be taken to mean man's conscious recognition of purposive
intelligence and adaptibility in the universe of things on which he
is dependent for his continued existence and well-being and with
which he endeavours to live in harmonious relations.

1996 Leverhulme Research Fellowships and Grants

The Leverhulme Trustees, through their Research Awards Advisory Committee,
offer annually a number of fellowships and grants to individuals in aid of
original research. These awards are not available simply as replacement for
past support from other sources. They are intended to assist researchers
experienced in their own field pursuing investigations, particularly those who
are or have been prevented by routine duties or like cause from undertaking or
completing a research programme. Awards will not normally be made to those
under the age of thirty on 1 June 1996.

Research Grants are intended to assist with research expenses over and
above normal living costs and are open to applicants whether in full-time
permanent employment or not.

Research Fellowships are open only to those with permanent full-time
posts. However, applications may be considered from those not in full-time
permanent posts, only if their professional framework of employment
characteristically involves part-time work or short-term contracts (e.g.
practising artists in colleges of art). The fellowships are intended to
provide either a contribution towards replacement teaching costs or a
contribution towards loss of earnings (where research is not normally a
function of the candidate's contract or position) plus research expenses over
and above normal living costs, if required.

The awards are not available to persons who at the time of
application are registered or are intending to register for, reading or
waiting to have work examined for, degrees or equivalent awards, doctoral
studies, professional or vocational qualifications. No subject of inquiry is
excluded from consideration, nor are awards restricted to university
graduates. The awards are only open to persons resident in the United Kingdom
who have been educated in the United Kingdom or some other part of the
Commonwealth for at least two years at secondary school level and, where
applicable, at first degree level, or who can demonstrate that they are
permanent members of the UK scholarly community. The awards are tenable for
between three months and two years. The amount of each award depends on the
nature of the work and the circumstances of the case but will not exceed a
total of £15,050.

Awards must be taken up between 1 June 1996 and 1 May 1997.
Applicants for fellowships holding academic posts at Oxford should, if the
fellowship requires dispensation from university duties, seek the approval of
the General Board and their faculty board before making an application.
Application details will be available from the address below after 1 September
1995.

All requests for application details must be accompanied by an A4
size self-addressed envelope, appropriately stamped for 100 grams, for each
set of details, and no request for application details will be considered
after Friday, 3 November. Telephone requests for application forms will not be
accepted. Completed application forms plus one photocopy must be in the hands
of the Secretary by Friday, 10 November, and will not be considered if
arriving after this day. Applications made by fax cannot be accepted.
Application details (form F2 for both types of award) are available from the
Secretary, Research Awards Advisory Committee, the Leverhulme Trust,
15–19 New Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1NR.

1996 Leverhulme Emeritus Fellowships

The Leverhulme Trustees, through their Research Awards Advisory Committee,
offer annually approximately thirty-five Emeritus Fellowships. These awards
are to assist persons who hold or have recently held full-time teaching and/or
research posts in universities or other institutions of comparable status in
the United Kingdom.

Applicants must have retired during the last three years (that is,
on or after 10 November 1992), or must have retired by the time of commencing
the fellowship, and should be aged fifty-nine or above at the time of
retirement. The awards are primarily designed to help in the completion and
preparation for publication of the results of research already begun by
persons with an established record of research. The award attached to the
fellowship is to meet incidental costs. The award cannot provide a personal
allowance or pension supplementation. Grants are not made for equipment,
including books and computer hardware, nor can the trust make a contribution
towards institutional charges for accommodation or overheads. The fellowships
are tenable for between three months and two years and are not thereafter
renewable.

The amount of the award depends on the nature and cost of the
assistance sought but will not exceed a total of £15,050. Awards must be
taken up between 1 June 1996 and 1 May 1997. Application details will be
available from the address below after 1 September 1995.

All requests for application details must be accompanied by an A4
size self-addressed envelope, appropriately stamped for 100 grams for each set
of details, and no request for application details will be considered after
Friday, 3 November. Telephone requests for application forms will not be
accepted. Completed application forms plus one photocopy must be in the hands
of the Secretary by Friday, 10 November, and will not be considered if

1996 Leverhulme Study Abroad Studentships

The Leverhulme Trustees, through their Research Awards Advisory Committee,
offer annually approximately twenty studentships for a period of advanced
study or research at a centre of learning in Europe or any part of the world
except the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Applicants must explain why their work should be conducted by
residence overseas, rather than from the UK. The studentships are not intended
for those who wish only to improve their knowledge of modern languages;
otherwise no subject of study is excluded. At the time of application
candidates must hold a first degree from a United Kingdom university, or be
able to show evidence of equivalent education in the United Kingdom.
Undergraduates in their final year are not eligible to apply. Applicants must
also have been educated at a school or schools in the United Kingdom or any
other part of the Commonwealth and be normally resident in the United Kingdom.
They must be under the age of thirty on 1 June 1996 or, if older, must at the
time of application have completed a degree course (undergraduate or
postgraduate) within the last five years.

Studentships, which are tenable for one or two calendar years only,
may not normally be held in conjunction with other major awards and must be
taken up between 1 June 1996 and 1 May 1997. Students are required at the end
of tenure to make a short written report to the committee of their experiences
during the period of study or research. Students must be available for
interview in London in late April; travelling expenses within the United
Kingdom will be refunded. Application details will be available from the
address below after 1 September 1995.

All requests for application details must be accompanied by an A4
size stamped addressed envelope and no request for application details
received after 22 December will be considered. Completed application forms
plus one photocopy must be in the hands of the Secretary by Friday, 5 January
1996, and will not be considered if arriving after that date. Applications
made by fax cannot be accepted. Application details are available from the
Secretary, Research Awards Advisory Committee, the Leverhulme Trust,
15–19 New Fetter Lane, London EC4A 1NR.

        Corpus Christi College


        Corpus Christi Visiting Fellowship 1996–7

        The college proposes, if suitable candidates offer themselves, to elect to a
        Corpus Christi Visiting Fellowship for each term in the academic year
        1996–7. The fellowship is intended for persons of high academic
        distinction, either from abroad or from the UK, who wish to pursue academic
        study and research as a member of the college. It is tenable for one, two, or
        three terms during the year. Preference will be given to candidates whose work
        is close to the academic interests of one or more fellows of the college. A
        Visiting Fellow is entitled to free luncheon and dinner during all periods
        when the kitchen is open and to full membership of the senior common room.
        Applicants should write to the President's Secretary, Corpus Christi College,
        Oxford OX1 4JF, before 1 November, enclosing a curriculum vitae, a list of
        publications, a programme of work, and the names of three referees. It is

        Visiting Senior Research Fellowship 1996–7

        The college proposes to elect a distinguished visitor to a Visiting Senior

        research as a member of an Oxford college. The college has a preference for
        applicants able to visit for the whole academic year but, in any event, no
        election will be made for less than one term. The fellow will be a member of
        the senior common room and will have dining and lunching rights. A small study
        room will be available free of charge; residential accommodation may be
        available on payment. The college has a preference, in 1996–7, for a

        Jesus College, Oxford OX1 3DW, not later than Friday, 3 November, enclosing a
        curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief statement of the programme

        Greendale Scholarship 1996

        Merton College proposes to elect a Greendale Scholar from 1 October 1996.
        Greendale Scholarships are for Swiss nationals who are graduates of, or in
        their final year of study at, a Swiss university. Candidates should, by 1
        October 1996, be graduates of not more than three years' standing and should
        have spent no more than two years in postgraduate study or research. In
        assessing the time spent in postgraduate study, it may be possible to discount
        the time spent on taught courses or professional training and time lost
        through illness, but this allowance will not extend to more than twelve
        months. The scholarship will run for two years with the possibility of renewal
        for a third. Candidates will be required to register for a degree course or
        some other formal qualification within Oxford University. In no circumstances
        will a scholarship be conferred upon someone who is not able to enter the
        University in October 1996. Further particulars and copies of the application
        form may be obtained from the Assistant Tutorial Secretary, Tutorial Office,
        Merton College, Oxford OX1 4JD (fax: Oxford (2)76361). The closing date for
        applications and references is 6 December.

        psychology), recent economic, social, or political history, industrial
        relations, management studies, public and social administration, international
        studies, international relations, social and medical statistics, American
        studies, or any aspect of social studies (such as, for instance, Commonwealth
        history or the study of Western Europe or the Third World) which falls broadly
        within these fields. Candidates should normally, by October 1996, have
        completed, or be close to completing, a doctoral thesis. They should not have
        spent more than eight years in full-time postgraduate work in social sciences,
        and, subject to the completion of a doctorate, the fellowships will be for

        to £14, 985; pre-doctoral fellows receive a grant of £7,287. In both
        cases fellows receive free accommodation in college or a housing allowance of

        Competition, Nuffield College, Oxford OX1 1NF. Applications must be received

        Asian Studies Centre


        Cha Fund for Asian Studies

        The Cha Fund provides postgraduate students who are working on research
        degrees in any aspect of south, south-east, and/or north-east Asian studies
        with grants towards the costs of their thesis research. Students from any
        college within the University of Oxford may apply. The maximum grant available
        is £500, and no student who has been awarded a grant from the fund for
        any amount up to that limit will be eligible for another. Nor are students
        with probationary status, students for the M.Phil. degree, or students whose
        thesis deals only tangentially with Asia eligible for consideration. Among the
        purposes for which grants may be given are: travel essential to thesis
        research, the acquisition of materials essential to thesis research, and the
        preparation of art-work or other material for inclusion in the completed
        thesis. Grants for subsistence or for the editing of theses will not be made;
        nor is funding available to present papers at conferences, except when a very
        strong case can be made for the relevance of such a presentation to the
        applicant's thesis research. Candidates are expected to apply for grants
        before incurring expenses. Applications for grants are considered twice a
        year, early in Michaelmas Term (for grants needed at any time through to the
        end of the following April) and early in Hilary Term (for grants needed at any
        time through to the end of the following September and/or during all or part
        of the following academic year). Applications should be made on a form
        available from the Secretary of the Asian Studies Centre, St Antony's College,
        Oxford OX2 6JF, and should be submitted by the end of the third week of the
        relevant term. No awards are made during Trinity term.
