Death of Mr. Palmer Phillips

Extract

We regret to report the death of Mr. Charles Palmer Phillips, Commissioner in Lunacy, at Elstree, on September 27th, in his 74th year. He was a son of the late Mr. William Edward Phillips, Governor of Prince of Wales's Island. Born in 1822, he was educated at Eton and Oxford, and was called to the Bar in 1846. He was principal secretary to Lord Chancellor Chelmsford in 1859, was a Revising Barrister for the City of London in 1864, and secretary to the Commissioners in Lunacy from 1865 to 1872. In the latter year he was appointed a Commissioner, and held the office until his death. He was the author of works on “Copyright Law” and “The Law Concerning Lunatics.” His death removes a personality familiar to every Asylum Superintendent, many of whom can bear testimony to the kindly, courteous, and efficient discharge of his official duties, in which he took a keen, intelligent, and philanthropic interest.
