CARL VON LINDE is probably known to most scientific workers as the designer of a liquid-air machine, and nothing else. He contributed, however, to ordinary refrigeration as well, and still more to the problems of gas separation which are now becoming of such technical importance. Thus it is fitting, in this year which sees the centenary of his birth—he was born on June 11, 1842—to survey his work and to realize the debt which we owe to him.
