Dates of existence
Born in Hampstead on 6th December 1863, the son of Major Luke Loftus Bushe-Fox, an alumnus of Christ Church College Oxford and barrister, Loftus Bushe-Fox came up to St John’s College Cambridge in 1882 and first studied the Maths Tripos in 1885 as 12th Wrangler, before completing the Law Tripos (LLB) the following year. It was not until 1912 that he proceeded to take the LLM. He was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1890, before returning to St John’s in 1902.
Bushe-Fox returned to Cambridge to take up a position of Law Lecturer at St John’s in 1902, before being admitted to the Fellowship in 1903 as well as taking on the role of Junior Dean that year, and becoming a Tutor in 1905. He was committed to his work in the College and was well thought of by students and staff. Outside his academic commitments he was a keen sportsman, excelling at rowing, lawn tennis and shooting.
His relatively early death in 1916 was mourned by current staff and students alike, and was considered a great loss to the College and future students.
