TO Grafton Elliot Smith the pious hands of friends and colleagues have erected in this book “a monument more lasting than brass”. A biographical sketch by Mr. Warren Dawson— based largely on letters written by Elliot Smith himself (for he preserved few or none addressed to him), two autobiographical fragments, of which the writing was interrupted by his death, and an account of his Cambridge days, also unfinished owing to the death of its author, Lord Rutherford, are followed by chapters, each contributed by someone most intimately in touch with him in a particular phase of his life or work.
