Admin History Sir Thomas Malcolm Knox, Principal of St. Andrews University 1953-1966, was born in 1900 and was educated at Bury Grammar School and the Liverpool Institute. In 1923 he gained a First in Literae Humaniores from Pembroke College, Oxford, and for the next eight years held various secretarial and executive positions in Lever Bros. Ltd. In 1931 he was accepted for the post as Lecturer in Philosophy at Jesus College, Oxford, and in 1933 he was subsequently appointed to an official Fellowship and Tutorship. In 1936 he moved to the Chair of Moral Philosophy at St. Andrews and in 1953 was finally confirmed as Principal. He retired in 1966 and died in 1980.
Knox was known to philosophers in his capacity as translator of Hegel and as editor of the works of R.G. Collingwood. In recognition of his devotion to scholarship he received the Hon. D. Litt. from Glasgow and was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1955.
