Professor Tyndall, 1864, (1946). Creator: George Richmond Featured Print

Professor Tyndall, 1864, (1946). Creator: George Richmond

Professor Tyndall, 1864, (1946). Portrait of Professor John Tyndall (1820-1893), Irish-born physicist and mountaineer. Tyndall was appointed Professor of Natural Philosophy at the Royal Institution, London, in 1854 and became President of British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1874. Some of his most notable work was carried out in the fields of heat radiation and acoustics. A keen mountaineer, he combined the pastime with studies of glacial motion in the Swiss Alps. Towards the end of his life Tyndall's health was poor and he died in 1893 from an accidental overdose of chloral hydrate, an imsomnia cure widely misused in the late 19th century. From "British Mountaineers", by F. S. Smythe. [Collins, London, 1946]

Professor Faraday lecturing at the Royal Institute...1856, (1901). Creator: Unknown

Professor Faraday lecturing at the Royal Institute before the Prince Consort and the Prince of Wales, 1856, (1901). Michael Faraday (1791-1867) giving a lecture attended by Prince Albert and his son, Prince Albert Edward (future King Edward VII). Faraday was one of the greatest scientists of the 19th century. His most significant contribution was "Experimental Researches on Electricity" which was published over 40 years, where he described his discoveries, including the laws of electromagnetic induction (1831) and the laws of electrolysis (1833). He also discovered the principles of the electric motor and dynamo. Faraday founded the famous Friday evening discourse and children's Christmas lectures at the Royal Institution in London, both of which are still given today. From "The Illustrated London News Record of the Glorious Reign of Queen Victoria 1837-1901: The Life and Accession of King Edward VII. and the Life of Queen Alexandra". [London, 1901]

The Night-Watchman, c1908, (1909)

The Night-Watchman, c1908, (1909). Physicist Douglas Mawson on nightwatch in the hut at Cape Royds. Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) made three expeditions to the Antarctic. During the second expedition, 1907-1909, he and three companions established a new record, Farthest South latitude at 88°S, only 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, or 180 km) from the South Pole, the largest advance to the pole in exploration history. Members of his team also climbed Mount Erebus, the most active volcano in the Antarctic. Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII for these achievements. He died during his third and last oceanographic and sub-antarctic expedition, aged 47. Illustration from The Heart of the Antarctic, Vol. I, by E. H. Shackleton, C.V.O. [William Heinemann, London, 1909]
