SON of the late Dr. Thomas Morrison, for many years Rector of the Glasgow Free Church Training College, Mr. Morrison was educated at Glasgow Academy and University, where he graduated M.A. At the close of his University course he studied for a session in Leipzig. Afterwards he taught for three years in Dollar Institution, and at the end of that time was appointed second master in Lurgan College. There for six and a half years he had a wide experience of elementary education in the lower school, while he conducted the highest classes in French and German. In 1891 he was appointed lecturer in Glasgow Free Church Training College on History, Political Economy, and Physiography, and during the eight years which followed, until the death of his father, he was closely associated with him in the management of the College.

    On the departure of Mr. Allison to become Rector of George Watson's College in Edinburgh in 1904, Mr. Morrison received the appointment of interim Rector, and after considerable delay caused by the Church crisis, was in 1905 appointed permanent Rector of the United Free Church Training College in Glasgow.
