THE death of Prof. V. Dolejšek in January 1945, after much suffering, deprived Czechoslovakia of one of its most outstanding men of science. Dolejšek was a distinguished experimental physicist and X-ray spectroscopist. Born on February 20, 1895, in Prague, he studied at the Charles University, where he obtained his doctorate in 1919. In 1922, he worked with Prof. Manne Siegbahn in Lund, and later with Prof. Paschen in Tubingen. In 1928 he was made a temporary professor and in 1935 a permanent professor of experimental physics at the Charles University, Prague.
