    Article metrics


    THE mere fact that the name of the late Prof. Pritchard is most widely known in connection with his astronomical researches, is in itself no uncertain sign of the energy and capacity of the man, for, as he himself stated, he did not really begin his astronomical work until he was seventy years of age. There are, however, other sides of his career for which he is little less worthy of grateful remembrance, exhibiting him, as they do, in the light of a pioneer in more than one important movement.
