CHARLES MINSHALL JESSOP, who died on A March 9, was born on June 13, 1861. His father was vice-principal of Cheshunt Theological College, and it may be to this that he owed his strong religious views. Jessop was educated at King's College School, London, and Clare College, Cambridge. He was bracketed seventh wrangler in the mathematical tripos of 1885 along with James Harkness and Henry Stroud. Harkness was afterwards the joint author of Harkness and Morley's “Theory of Functions”, and Stroud became, later, as professor of physics, Jessop's colleague in the Newcastle Division of the University of Durham. In the same year (1885) Jessop was elected a fellow of Clare.
