Founding Fathers

  • Alan Megahey


In 1950 Edward Paget celebrated the 25th anniversary of his consecration as Bishop of Southern Rhodesia. He was a towering figure, physically and otherwise, and he looms large in the story of Peterhouse.25 He was born in 1886 in Christ Church College, Oxford, where his father, Francis, had recently become a canon of the cathedral and Professor of Pastoral Theology, in succession to Edward King, one of Edward’s godfathers, after whom he was named, and who went on to be the great (and controversial) Bishop of Lincoln. Paget’s paternal grandfather was Sir James Paget, a leading Victorian surgeon and vice-chancellor of the University of London; James’s brother became Sir George Paget, Regius Professor of Physic at Cambridge.
