  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Baron
Barons of the Exchequer were formerly six judges (a chief baron and five puisne barons) to whom the administration of justice was committed in causes betwixt the king and his subjects relative to matters of revenue.
Baron and Feme, in heraldry, is the term used when the coatsof-arms of a man and his wife are borne per pale in the game escutcheon, the mans being always on the dexter side, and the womans on the sinister.
Though in Latin documents of the middle ages the term barones for liberi domini was used, it was not until the I7th century that the word Baron, perhaps under the influence of the court of Versailles, began to be used as the equivalent of the old German Freiherr, or free lord of the Empire.

 1972 Wigram
Despite a brisk wind blowing up the main straight McRae soon established Wigram as the quickest Tasman track when he circulated in 68.4 sec for an average of 112.105 mph.
But by the time the front-runners were setting themselves up in the bends at the south-east end of the circuit to run into the main straight, McRae had hit the front and he completed the first lap 100 yards clear of Hobbs, Hailwood, Bartlett, Matich, Noyes and Oxton.
Wigram proved that McRae and the Leda were just as much at home on a fast circuit as on a slow one, such as Levin.

Central to this new commitment on the part of the Libraries to Jewish Studies was the acquisition in December 1985 of the library of Salo Wittmayer Baron, an outstanding scholarly collection of some 20,000 volumes.
The endowment of two chairs in Jewish Studies - the Aaron-Roland Professorship in Jewish Studies and the Daniel E. Koshland Professorship in Jewish Culture and History--and the concurrent acquisition of Salo Baron's library were the result of a chain of event that began in 1979.
Stanford's interest was piqued, and the University subsequently began to negotiate with Professor Baron for the purchase of his library.
