Tuesday January 30, 1894

To Oxford in evening. Took M.A. degree on Feb 1.

H.H. Turner, Chief Assistant

Rebekah Higgitt says.....
Again in Oxford, in preparation for his new role as Savilian Professor of Astronomy, the taking of his Master of Arts degree was undoubtedly merely a formality, necessary in order to take up the professorship and the associated fellowship of New College, Oxford. Turner already held a Bachelors and Masters degree from the University of Cambridge.
