Excerpt from The Astrophysical Journal, Vol. 42: An International Review of Spectroscopy and Astronomical Physics Died on March 24, at 8 Morels Garden, Chelsea, England, after a long illness, Margaret Lindsay, widow of Sir William Huggins, in her sixty-seventh year. The achievements of the Victorian age were all passed in review in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. In the columns of the London papers was a long list of men whom the Queen delighted to honor, among them but a scant number from the ranks of science, and but one woman even remotely mentioned, and that one Margaret Lindsay Huggins. Knighthood of the Order of the Bath was conferred upon William Huggins "for the great contributions which, with the collaboration of his gifted wife, he had made to the new science of astro-physics." So it may be said that the wife became Lady Huggins in her own right. Dr. Huggins was born for research, and under him, as he remarked himself, "the astronomical observatory for the first time had also become a laboratory, and the spectroscope attached to the telescope had shown that the chemistry of the solar system prevailed wherever a star twinkled." For thirteen years Dr. Huggins worked alone, mapping lines of stars by night and of the elements by day. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
