THE passing at the very height of his powers of Dr. Temple will be felt keenly by librarians whose memories of his years of office as President of the Library Association must be amongst their most valued ones. His processional way through life from the Palace at Exeter to that at Canterbury has been told by many and his statesmanship, eloquence, literary gifts and fine Christian leadership have had many and eloquent witnesses. To us, however, he remains the stalwart, entirely friendly and delightful figure who controlled the Scarborough Conference with skill, dignity and companionable humour. His dinner‐table stories were some of the best we remember. As a writer he was one of the foremost religious philosophers of his generation and, in education, his advocacy of adult education gave it the high place it holds in public esteem today.
