W. A. Shenstone, F.R.S.


“DISTINGUISHED for his skill as an experimenter, for his ability as a teacher, and for his zeal in the introduction of improved methods of teaching physical science as a branch of general education.” Such was the statement of his qualifications for admission to the Royal Society, of which Shenstone became a Fellow in 1898. By his friends he will be remembered for his enthusiastic eagerness in the pursuit of science, by unselfish devotion to what he thought his duty, by his loyalty and good-fellowship, and by the indomitable cheerfulness with which he bore physical suffering.
