Mr. G. V. Boys


GEOFFREY VERNON BOYS, secretary of the Institution of Naval Architects, died on March 15 at St. Mary Bourne, Andover. He was the only son of the late Sir Charles Vernon Boys, whose death at the age of eighty-nine occurred a year ago, and was born in 1893 at Oxford, where his father was then repeating, with improved accuracy, the Cavendish experiment, when he obtained 5·57 for the mean density of the earth.
