  • Notes 
    • THE late representative for North-West Lanark is a son of Dr. A. Halliday Douglas and Jessie, daughter of Mr. Kenneth Mackinnon, and was born in Edinburgh, 2nd October, 1865. He pursued his education at Edinburgh Academy and the Universities of Edinburgh and Freiburg. During his course at Edinburgh he took first-class honours in Philosophy, and among other distinctions the Vans Dunlop Scholarship, the Hamilton Fellowship, and the Ferguson Scholarship, the last-named of which is open to students of all the Scottish Universities. He also took the degrees of M.A. and D.Sc. For seven years he filled the position of Lecturer in Moral Philosophy in Edinburgh University, but in 1895 he threw himself into politics, contested North-West Lanarkshire in the Liberal interest, and was returned in 1899 with a majority beyond what had been hoped for even by his friends. He resides at Auchlochan, Lesmahagow. In 1904 he published a volume in memory of his brother, the late Mr. A. Halliday Douglas, and his other publications include "John Stuart Mill, a study of his Philosophy," 1895, and "Ethics of John Stuart Mill," 1898. Mr. Douglas married in 1895 Anne Isabel, daughter of Mr. Robert Tod, Clerwood, Corstorphine,
