Prof. A. E. H. Love, F.R.S

An Erratum to this article was published on 05 October 1940


PROF. A. E. H. LOVE, Sedleian professor of natural philosophy in the University of Oxford, died on June 5, 1940, at the age of seventy-seven. Though of late years in frail health, he had been active in lecturing and attending to University business up to the time of his brief illness, and he had seemed well and brisk when meeting his colleagues at a sub-faculty meeting early in the summer term. He was unmarried; his sister Blanche, whose devotion to his welfare was extreme, survives him.
