The Rev. W. Colenso, F.R.S

    Article metrics


    WE briefly announced in our issue of February 16 the death of the Rev. William Colenso, F.R.S., of Napier, New Zealand. The close of so interesting a life, which for more than half a century has been intimately associated with the progress of science and education in the antipodes, is one that demands more than a passing reference in the columns of NATURE.
