I, L A N F Y N Y D D SUCCESS OF A "LLANFVNYDD BOY."— Mr David T. Oliver, who is a member of the South Wales Circuit, has been awarded a gold medal for distinguished merit at the recent examination for the LL.D. degree of the Royal University of Ireland. We under- stand that this is the first occasion on record on which a medal has been awarded in connection with the LL.D. examination, and that owing to the absence of any stand- ing rule directing the grant of such a mark of distinction whenever the authorities see tit to do s), the present award had to be made the subject of a special vote on the part of the Senate. In his previous academic career at the Royal University Dr Oliver passed all his examinations with high 0 honours. He was placed in the first class in his B.A. examination, being also awarded an exhibition of J..5°. After taking his M.A. in the second class (but with first place in history and political science) he passed his LL.B. in the first class, and was awarded a prize of J. 2 5 for being second on the list. He is also a LL.B. (first-class honours) of the London University. Dr Oliver, who is an old pupil of Caterham School, comes of a well-known Nonconformist family, settled at l.lanfynydd, where he hi nself also spent some of his earlier years. His father, the Rev Henry Oliver, B.A., of Bristol, formerly of Pontypridd, and then of Newport, himself the eldest of four sons who entered the ministry, will be remembered by many as being, while in the vigour of his manhood, one of the foremost preachers of the day among the Congregationalists of Wales. Another son of his, Mr John Penry Oliver, is also at the Bar, being a member of the Oxford Circuit. -#
