Your University, One Photo at a Time

Sir Henry Jones

Sir Henry Jones
Sir Henry Jones (1852-1922) studied Philosophy at the University of Glasgow and later became a professor of Moral Philosophy at the University from 1894 to 1922. He was knighted in 1912.

The plaque  above commemorates him and marks the house which was gifted to the University in his memory. The house, located at the corner of Gibson Street and Oakfield Avenue, across the road from the Stevenson Building, today houses the academic offices of the Philosophy Department, the lobby of which is adorned with the commemorative plaque.
