Prof. Alexander Larmor


THE death, on October 10, of Alexander Larmor, emeritus professor of natural philosophy at Magee College, Londonderry, has removed one who rendered very valuable services to scientific education in Northern Ireland. His published work, though important, gives a very inadequate idea of his powers of mind and his wide knowledge; his friends and correspondents know that, if he wrote comparatively little, he thought deeply on the subjects which interested him.
