Joseph Shaw (Christ's College)
Shaw was admitted as a Sizar at Christ's College, Cambridge in 1803, gaining a BA 1807, and an MA in 1810. He was a Fellow of the College between 1807 and 1849, when he was elected Master in succession to John Graham. However, he resigned the office before his term of grace had expired, in the conscientious feeling that his age rendered him unsuited to responsibilities of the office. James Cartmell was elected in succession. He then became a Senior Fellow from then until his death.
