Philip Kelland was a remarkable man, not only for the accomplishments that I described in his biography in my book, but that he made a considerable impression on many undergraduates, such as Robert Louis Stevension. (See "Some College Memories," from The New Amphion, Being the Book of the Edinburgh University Union Fancy Fair, Edinburgh, T. & A. Constable, 1886.)
It was claimed that "no man's education is complete, or truly liberal, who knew not Kelland."
The portrait of Kelland is by William Hole.
