Prof. E. B. Rosa


    THE death, on May 17, of Prof. Edward Bennett I Rosa, of the Bureau of Standards at Washington, at the age of sixty years, is a serious blow to electrical science. Born in 1861, Prof. Rosa gained distinction as a student in the Johns Hopkins University under Rowland, and after some experience in professorial work in the Wesleyan university where his early undergraduate days nad been passed was in 1901 appointed to the staff of the Bureau of Standards as a physicist. There his main work was done. In 1910 he became chief physicist, and as head of the electrical department was responsible for many of the valuable researches which have been carried out at the bureau.
