ON April 8, at Blackheath, died, at eighty-three years of age, Prof. William Richard Hodgkinson, one of the older school of chemists, whose interests in chemistry covered a wide field. Born at Sheffield in 1851, and educated at the Royal Grammar School there, he early came under the influence of Sorby, the father of metallography, and to this is to be traced his later work on metals and their treatment.
