2. An "I'Anson Professorship" and "Mary Gertrude I'Anson
Scholarship" at the University of Toronto
In 1968, the Mary Gertrude I’Anson Fund was
established by the bequest of Mary Gertrude I’Anson of the residue of her
estate to the Governors of the University of Toronto. The Fund was directed
toward support of the Connaught Laboratories until the sale of the laboratories
in 1972, after which time support was redirected for a limited time by
Governing Council to the Division of Community Health in the Faculty of
Medicine. In 1981, Governing Council broadened the scope of the Fund to
encompass all medical research at the University of Toronto.[www.governingcouncil.utoronto.ca]
The Mary Gertrude I'Anson Scholarship is awarded annually by
the University of Toronto: The Scholarship was established for the
support of medical research in the University of Toronto in the tradition
and pattern of the research formerly performed by the University’s Connaught
Medical Research Laboratories.

Mary Gertrude I'Anson was born in Toronto in 1893, the only known
child of William I'Anson and Sarah Rebecca Rogers [Source: Rootsweb]
William was the son of James I'Anson and Mary Rutter, Quakers of Darlington
whose roots can be traced back to Capt. John I'Anson on the family tree.
|3. A Donator of Paintings in England
In 1933 Miss G. I'Anson donated the Italian 17th-century painting
"Landscape with Hermit" by Salvatore Rosa to the Walker Art Gallery in
Miss I'Anson had no interest or connection with Liverpool. She
lived at 27 Argyle Road, Kensington (according to the records of the Walker
Art Gallery). Her intention had been to donate the painting to the
National Gallery in London, but they had suggested that the work would
be better appreciated in one of the nation's provincial galleries, and
had suggested the Walker as a gallery with an appropriate collection.
The current Curator of the Walker Art Gallery thinks that Miss I'Anson
had donated other paintings at other times to other galleries.
