Winchester College

Sir Jeremy Morse received Ad Portas

Sir Jeremy Morse is one of the most distinguished Old Wykehamists alive, famous as a classicist, a banker and a cruciverbalist. He entered Winchester College in 1942, having won an Exhibition. Classics at Oxford followed, and then the world of finance, in particular sixteen years as Chairman of Lloyd's Bank. He is a Fellow of All Souls' College Oxford and was for some time Chancellor of the University of Bristol.

Sir Jeremy was a Fellow of Win Coll from 1966 to 1982, and Warden from 1987 to 1997. The sharpness of his mind, particularly as a crossword aficionado, was so highly regarded by the novelist Colin Dexter that he named the famous Inspector Morse in his honour.
