William Sibly (1883-1959) by Geoffrey L. Rudd
Wycliffe College aroused media curiosity last year due to the stipulation of its founder that vegetarians should be eligible for a discount in tuition fees.
William Sibly developed the ethos of his father through an involvement in the vegetarian movement which reflected the Methodist background of the family.
In the year of his death, Sibly was one of the oldest surviving members of the Order of the Golden Age and visited their International Headquarters - relocated to Natal, South Africa in 1939 - on at least two occasions whilst President of the Vegetarian Society.
