I will again be quoting form Giants of Science, A brief Sketch of the Public Service of George Davidson. I am pleased that my readers have given such a approving response to his story. The introduction says it is “Brief” but the writing does continue for several pages. In this pandemic I am certain to write about something else besides that. George Davidson was a fascinating man.
