In reply: I have no difficulty in accepting Peterson’s comment. My view of what happened at the genesis of the College arose from the fact that, at the time, Professor Maddison and I were close friends and had many conversations about academia and its institutions. This led me to greater awareness of his contribution and less of the contribution of others. I should have been more careful in reaching my opinion.
