Edmund Beale followed his father, Charles Gabriel Beale into the legal profession. He joined the family practice in the early twentieth century when his uncle James and cousin Arthur retired. Retiring in the early 1950s, Beale had served as the University’s Pro-Chancellor during difficult wartime years, from 1939 to 1947. Both his father and son occupied the same position, the former when the position was called ‘Vice-Chancellor’, a lay post in those days, and not to be confused with today’s salaried academic role.
