      Obituary in The Times, 4 December 1930, p. 18, reads: MISS SARAH ACLAND / Miss Sarah Angelina Acland, who died at Oxford on Tuesday at the age of 81, was the only daughter of the late Sir Henry Acland, Bt., formerly Regius Professor of Medicine in the University of Oxford. A correspondent writes:--- / Miss Acland never enjoyed good health, but was often obliged to spend the winter at Torquay, the Riviera, or Madeira. Notwithstanding this, she acted as hostess in her father's house in Board-street after her mother's death in 1878 and bravely carried on its generous hospitalitieis, which were extended to senior and junior members of the University and to many others from all quarters of the globe. Especially notable were the occasions when the medical examiners made the house their headquarters. She inherited unusual powers of hand and brain from her gifted parents. Mr. Ruskin, who was an intimate friend of her father's and a frequent visitor to the house, exercised great influence on her artistic powers, which were considerable, and she might, perhaps, have attained a high place in water-colour. As it was, she gained distinction in photography, especially in portraiture, and examples of her work may be seen in the Bodleian. She was one of the first, if not the first, to take a portrait in colour photography, and she collaborated with Mr. Sanger Sheppard in the development of the process known by his name. Her facility in learning languages was great. She mastered French, German, Italian, and even Portuguese, and had some acquaintance with Russian. She kept up a numerous correspondence with friends in Canada, the United States, and Japan. But the outstanding quality of her life and character was her unfailing readiness to help those in trouble and sorrow; those to whom she was near and dear have not only lost a much-loved relative but also a most faithful friend. / The funeral will be at Christ Church, Oxford, at noon to-morrow.
