MR. WILLIAM RINTOUL died at the age of sixty-six years at his home in Ardrossan, Ayrshire, on August 25, after nearly a year's illness. His career had been a remarkable one, and began in Glasgow, where he was educated and received in Anderson's College his scientific training. In the late ‘eighties there were (as there are even now) few schools of analytical chemistry, so that Mr. R. R. Tatlock not only filled the post of city analyst but also himself lectured and had a staff of lecturers on chemistry and physics to students many of whom afterwards became his assistants and later occupied important positions in the chemical profession. Ramsay was one of them.
