Prof. J. N. Collie, F. R. S


BY the death on November 1 of John Norman Collie, chemistry has lost one of her most outstanding personalities. To me, who knew him well from January 1889 until September 1939 when he left London to live in Skye, Collie was a true guide, philosopher and friend, and to-day it is my privilege to write of him as one of his last remaining friends for fifty-three years.
