Since 1861, when, being an Examiner, he could have no pupils, the Senior Wrangler was every year his pupil, viz., twenty-one times, besides twice before that date. This success is without precedent. In 1855 Mr. Bouth wrote a book in conjunction with Lord Brougham. In 1859 he was appointed Examiner in Mathe- matics in the University of London, and, after the necessary interval of a year, he held the office for a second quinquennial period (1865-70). Soon after his gradua- tion he was elected a member of the Cambridge Philosophical So- ciety, of the Geological Society, and of the Royal Geographical Society ; subsequently he became a member of the Astronomical Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society. He is also an original member of the London Mathema- tical Society, having been one of those who helped to establish it. In 1860 he was Modei*ator, and in 1861 Examiner, for the Mathema- tical Tripos at Cambridge. In 1864 he married the eldest daughter of Sir G. B. Airy, the late Astro- nomer-Royal. In 1867 he gained the Adams Prize for his essay on the Stability of Motion. The hono- rary degree of LL.D. was conferred upon him in 1879 by the University of Glasgow. He was elected an honorary FeUow of Peterhouse Nov. 6, 1883. Mr. Routh has written a book on " Rigid Dyna- mics" (4th edit. 1882), and has contributed numerous papei-s on mathematical subjects to the Mathe- matical Messenger, the Quarterly Journal of Mathematics, the Pro- ceedings of the Royal Society, and the volumes of the London Mathe- matical Society.
