Abstract

SOME fifty years ago Marlborough Robert. Pryor, who died at Weston Park, Stevenage, on April.3, was well known in scientific circles at Cambridge, and seemed likely to rise to a high position in those studies. He was a man of many interests and great adaptability of mind, who, though he was rather early diverted to executive business, never lost his interest in those parts of it which were connected with science. Educated at Eton, he entered Trinity College, Cambridge, taking his degree as B.A. in 1870, and that of M.A. three years later. It is rather remarkable that he did not "go in for honours," for he was then so conspicuous a student of natural science as to obtain successively a scholarship and a fellowship by examination in those subjects, being in each case the first elected to these distinctions in Trinity College.
