This volume of essays in Political Science is a tribute to the character and work of Professor Edward Johns Urwick who in June, 1937, retired under the age limit from the chair of Political Economy in the University of Toronto. It is the first volume of a series in Political Economy to be published by the Maurice Cody Foundation and the University of Toronto Press. It includes articles written by colleagues of Professor Urwick in the Department of Political Economy on subjects in which they had special interest, and articles which are summaries of work done by holders of the Maurice Cody Fellowship since its establishment in 1928. By a happy coincidence, this volume is issued fifty years after the chair in Political Economy was founded.
