  Robert Baldwin Ross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Robert Baldwin Ross (May 25, 1869 – October 5, 1918) was a man of many talents, responsible for bringing together several great literary figures and acting as their mentor.
Ross is also of interest in his decision to 'come out' to his family, who he gathered to hear the announcement not long after he left university.
Ross was preparing to travel to Melbourne, Australia (to open an exhibition at the National Gallery) when he died suddenly in 1918, an event which caused great grief to his many friends.

Baldwin lived the rhetoric of his times: he was a gentleman, morally courageous, utterly genuine in his willingness to sacrifice his interests to those of the institutions he revered — the constitution, the law, the church, property, and the family.
Baldwin was determined to settle the issue, to end the connection of church and state in higher education, and to destroy King’s College as a visible symbol of Anglican privilege and class favouritism.
Baldwin’s mood was not lightened when, on 26 June, Mackenzie moved for a special committee to draft a bill for abolishing the Court of Chancery and conferring equity jurisdiction on the courts of common law.

 ROBERT BALDWIN - LoveToKnow Article on ROBERT BALDWIN   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Robert Baldwin was called to the Bar in 1825, and entered into partnership with his father.
The special struggle leading to his resignation was an attempt to abolish the court of chancery of Upper Canada, whose constitution was due to a measure introduced by Baldwin in 1849.
He had, William also reports, a gift of impromptu eloquence, and a faculty both for saying witty things pleasantly at other peoples expense and for listening placidly to witticisms directed against himself; while he was generous to excess without needing to make exactions in order to support his generosity, and always respected the Church.

Ross was a grandson of Robert Baldwin, co-founder of responsible government in Canada, and was born in 1869 into a distinguished Toronto family.
Ross, who is also credited with nurturing the career of British poet Siegfried Sassoon and a host of other artists, was almost single-handedly responsible for rescuing Wilde's estate from bankruptcy and re-establishing public interest in his work in the 20th century.
Ross died in 1918, and his ashes were later placed in Wilde's tomb in Paris.

Robert Baldwin Ross left Cambridge University without a degree, but he'd nonetheless become a pivotal figure in London's literary and artistic circles by his early twenties.
Unlike Wilde, however, Robbie Ross managed to live his life openly at the same time that he placed himself firmly within the London establishment as a writer, critic, and art dealer, not to mention as a frequent guest of the Asquiths at 10 Downing Street.
The pluckish Ross also provided a haven for young literary figures like Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, Osbert Sitwell, and Robert Graves during the years of World War I, and less happily, he suffered the persecution of Oscar Wilde's nemesis, Lord Alfred Douglas.

 The Corruption of Civil Rights and Civil Law
Just as few are aware that "civil rights" no longer means what it once it, but its opposite, "civil society," with whose very name most are unfamiliar, may be doomed to go in the same direction.
Dershowitz concludes that Clinton is an opportunist, who ignores the principles of the Bill of Rights for political expediency, but also, more significantly in the long run, is part of a movement of opinion through which the very meaning of civil rights has been corrupted.
A representative of Baldwin later said that "It was a parody on the hysteria in this country coming from right-wing fanatics." However, nothing from Ken Starr or the Republicans in Congress has been anywhere near as hysterical, hostile, or fanatical as remarks like all of these from Baldwin, Dershowitz, and others.
