The Times/1887/Obituary/Theodore Walrond
Our columns on Friday contained the name of Mr. Theodore Walrond, C. B., one of Her Majesty's Civil Service Commissioners, who died at his house in Lancaster-gate on Thursday, aged 63. He was the eldest son of the late Mr. Theodore Walrond, of Calder-park, near Glasgow, and was one of Dr. Arnold's favourite students at Rugby. He was elected to a scholarship at Balliol College, Oxford, in 1842, and finished a brilliant carrerr by taking a first class in the school of Literæ Humaniores. He was widely known and liked in London society, and had held his commissionship for about 15 years. He was indefatigable in his attention to aspirants for Civil Service appointments, was an intimate friend of Dean Stanley, and the author of memoirs of Lord Elgin.
