Centenary of Dalton's Death


THE Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society, which was so closely associated with John Dalton during the whole of his life in Manchester, is commemorating his work on the occasion of the centenary of his death which falls this year. The first meeting of next session is to be devoted to a memorial lecture. In connexion with it the Society hopes to publish a memorial volume in which it would be of interest to give the whereabouts of relics of Dalton, many of those which the Society possessed having been destroyed as a result of fires started by enemy action. The secretaries would therefore welcome any information relating to Dalton's scientific interests or his connexion with the Society. They are also in a position to receive gifts or offers of gifts.
