Cecil French Bequest. Cecil French was born in Dublin and trained as an artist at the Royal Academy Schools, London, and at Sir Hubert von Herkomer's School at Bushey, Hertfordshire. On 30 June the Fulham Public Libraries Committee accepted with thanks Cecil French's offer of six works by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, for display in the libraries.
