Professor Smith!

  • Gavin Kennedy

Abstract

On Tuesday 9 January 1751 Adam Smith, aged 27, was elected Professor of Logic at Glasgow University by the Faculty of Professors and, with remarkable speed for the postal services of the time, the very next day he accepted the Professorship by letter. From free-lance public lecturer to university professor in three years was no mean achievement.
