Prof. H. G. Plimmer, F.R.S


BIOLOGIGAL and medical science has sustained a great loss by the passing away of Henry George Plimmer on Saturday last, June 22.. Plimmer had contributed much by his writing and influence to comparative pathology during his life, and his last illness interrupted a valuable and strenuous research on trench fever. During his earlier years he prepared himself for a scientific career by visiting and working with the great pioneers of that time, and it was doubtless owing to the influence of men like Pasteur that the direction of much of his subsequent research was due. He always kept up his Continental interests, and often took, part in the proceedings of foreign scientific congresses.
