Obituary edit

Mrs. Muriel Wilde. Dr. L. S. Sutherland writes:— Mrs. Wilde (née Agnes Muriel Clay), who died in Alton Hospital on March 1 in her eighty-fourth year, was among the earliest Oxford women to obtain a first class in Literae Humaniores. She came up to Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, as a scholar in 1896, and from 1901 she was the Hall's first tutor in classics until her marriage to Mr. H. N. Wilde in 1910. Her affectionate concern for the Hall was lifelong. She was a member of its council for many years and latterly an honorary member of its senior common room. She had a particular interest in its library which she enriched munificently both by annual subsidies and by large gifts from the fine collections that she and her husband had made. Another abiding interest was the Oxford Mission to Calcutta, which she served as honorary secretary and assistant treasurer for 17 years. An ardent traveller and keen walker (with her husband) in her younger days, she was latterly crippled with arthritis, an affliction she bore with a dignity and patience which were completely characteristic.
