THE British Federation of University Women has suffered a great loss in the death, on June 25, at the age of sixty-nine years, of Miss Edith Stoney who, on the day of her death, had been elected one of its vice-presidents. Edith Stoney was a member of a distinguished Irish family of scientific workers; her father, an uncle and a brother all being fellows of the Royal Society, whilst her sister, Dr. Florence Stoney, was one of the pioneers of X-ray work in medicine.
