Prof. G. A. Schott, F.R.S


    GEORGE ADOLPHUS SCHOTT was born at Bradford on January 25, 1868. From Bradford Grammar School he went up to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1886 as a pensioner with an open exhibition in science. He took a first in each part of the Natural Sciences Tripos, and it is interesting to notice, in view of his later career, that his first in the second part of the Tripos was in chemistry. He became a College scholar in 1888 and took his bachelor of arts degree in 1890.
