From The Times, January 22, 1880

Fatal Ice Accident - Yesterday afternoon an undergraduate of Keble
College, Oxford, named Edward Creswicke Scott Rawlinson, son of the
Rev. G. Rawlinson, Professor of Ancient History in the University, and
also Canon of Canterbury, was drowned in the River Cherwell through
the breaking of ice. The deceased left the college a few minutes
before 4 o'clock for the purpose of skating, and proceeded to the
Cherwell, a short distance from the University bathing-place at the
back of the New-park. Two ladies who were standing on the bank saw
him get on the ice with skates on, and almost immediately afterwards
the ice gave way beneath his weight and he disappeared. They at once
gave the alarm, and an undergraduate who was near and whose name is
unknown at present with great gallantry dashed into the water, which
is very deep at the spot, and endeavoured to rescue the deceased; but
although he made repeated attempts, he was unsuccessful. Mr. Shaw
Stewart, busar of Keble College, arrived soon afterwards, and drags
having been procured, the ice was broken and the body recovered and
conveyed to Keble College.
