The issue of the Physikalische Zeitschrift for June 1 contains a short account by Prof. F. A. Schulze of the work of Prof. Wilhelm Feussner, who died in 1928 at the advanced age of eighty-five years. He was born in Hanau in 1843, and studied at Heidelberg under Kirchhoff and at Marburg under Gerling. He took his doctor's degree in 1867 and became lecturer, in 1880 additional professor, and in 1908 honorary professor of theoretical physics at Marburg. He retired in 1918, but still kept in touch with modern research, and contributed to the section on interference in the new “Handbuch der physikalischen Optik”.
