OLD scientific friends of Mr. Francis J. Blight will learn with much regret of his death at the age of seventy-seven years, on January 27 at his home at Mill Hill. Previously to 1927 he had been closely associated with Messrs. Charles Griffin and Co., Ltd., the well-known publishers of technical scientific books, and since 1899, when Miss E. E. Griffin died, he had been chairman and managing director of the firm, only retiring in 1927 in consequence of rearrangements following on the death of Miss Helen Griffin.
