Prof. C. G. Barkla, F.R.S.


CHARLES GLOVER BARKLA, Nobel Prizeman in Physics for the year 1917, died at his home, Braid-wood, Edinburgh, on October 23. The news came as a shock to his friends, for his death occurred rather suddenly. He had been in poor health for some months and had undergone an operation in June. He had, however, recovered from that and was back at work, looking well and seemingly his bright, happy self again, when suddenly he collapsed, was ill for a week and died.
