Excerpt from Autobiographical Sketch of James Croll: With Memoir of His Life and Work
Aving been one of the intimate friends who urged Dr. Croll to write an autobiographical account of his remarkable career, it fell to me to arrange the materials which he left for publication... . Unfortunately, the auto biographical sketch was never completed, and together with the additional papers which came into my hands, it hardly furnished an adequate account of his life and scientific achievements. Accordingly, an effort was made to obtain further information, and various friends were asked to forward letters illustrating the development of his researches. The cordial response of several leading scientists made my task less difficult, but the time occupied in procuring and examining these materials partly accounts for the delay in the appearance of this volume.
