George Ramsay

George Gilbert Ramsay (1839-1921) was Professor of Humanity at the University of Glasgow, 1863-1906, and (in his eighties) was Dean of Faculties (1919-1921). He wrote a number of Latin text books.

A keen climber, Ramsay was a member of the Alpine Club in London and the president at the meeting in 1889 at which the Scottish Mountaineering Council was established. He was the first president of the SMC.
