IN Prof. Osborne Reynolds, whose death took place on February 21 at Watchet, Somersetshire, Great Britain has lost its most distinguished scientific engineer. He was born at Belfast on 1842, but spent his childhood in Suffolk, where his ancestors had, for generations, been rectors at Debach and Boulge. Having received his school education at Debenham, he entered Queen's College, Cambridge, and after a brilliant academic career, became a fellow of his college in 1867.
