Extract

It falls to the lot of only a very few able men to take up some neglected branch of science, and by their genius, their energetic work, the discoveries they make, assisted by their personal charm and bonhomie, to be able to attract general attention to their researches, and so attain a great public success, filling with interest and enthusiasm the intelligent, and attracting even the veriest tyro within the circle of their investigation. Such has been the outcome of the life-work of our friend and associate of many years, Professor John Milne, whose untiring energy in the study of Seismology has obtained for it now a foremost place in the physical sciences as having most important bearings on the economy of the globe and the very existence of our race.
