Dr. A. M. Kellas


    BY the death of Dr. A. M. Kellas we have lost one of the best authorities on the effect of high altitudes on the human system. No one else had so great a practical knowledge, or worked scientifically at the subject with more persistence than he. Born in Aberdeen, he was educated there, and afterwards went to Edinburgh, London, and Heidelberg. For some time he was assistant to Sir William Ramsay, and afterwards lecturer on chemistry at Middlesex Hospital.
