A bequest of five thousand dollars
by the late
Pearson Kirkman Marfleetof Prophetstown,
Whiteside Co. Illinois, U.S.A. to the University of Toronto, in the
City of Toronto, in the Province of Ontario in the Dominion of Canada. The interest
of this money to be devoted by the Governors Pearson Kirkman Marfleet of the University of Toronto to the maintenance of a lectureship to be called the Pearson Kirkman Marfleet Lectureship. The Lectureship to be maintained in perpetuity, and each lecturer to be appointed and to deliver a course of lectures at least once in every four years. In each annual calendar of the University the terms of the lectureship shall be announced.
Mr. Marfleet, an American citizen, devoted [constant] thought to the public welfare of his own country, and also watched the growth of the Dominion of Canada with profound interest. It is therefore suggested that in making the appointments to the lectureship from time to time those should be chosen who will set forth some phrase or phrases of the national movements of each or both countries.
