THE NEW WELSH KNIGHT. I It is not generally known that Dr. Isambard Owen, who is said to be about to have the honour of knighthood conferred upon him, is a Mon. mouthshire man, having been born at Chepstow in 1850, his father being at the time the chief consulting engineer of the Great Western Railway Company. It may be safely said that no man has better deserved the honour. Dr. Owen's services to the cause of Welsh education in all its various phases are too weU known to need recapitulation. It is not, perhaps, so generally known that his patriotic efforts have entailed sacrifices which few professional men, with so many calls upon them as this popular London physician, would be prepared to make. In addition to the numerous demands of a large private practice he occupies in his professional capacity the posts of physician to St. George's Hospital, dean of the Medical School, lecturer on medical jurisprudence, honorary secretary to the Metropolitan Branch of the British Medical Association, and to the International Medical Investigation Committee, He occupies the unique position of holding a seat on the Council of each of the three constituent colleges to the University, of which he is senior deputy chancellor.
