University of Birmingham; King Edward VII

"His Majesty King Edward VII opened these buildings July 7th 1909, and concluded his address thus; 'To you the students I say that the honour and dignity of this university are largely in your hands and I look to you to initiate and hand down worthy traditions to your successors.' 

This statue was presented to the university by Alderman Francis Corder Clayton, the first Pro-Vice Chancellor, to commemorate the opening of the university by His Majesty King Edward VII"

Statue can be found in the Aston Webb building on the main Edgbaston Campus of the University of Birmingham.
