Excerpt from History of the Royal Astronomical Society, 1820-1920 Grove-hills, should not be ignored because it fell just outside our limiting dates. Colonel grove-hills was treasurer at the time when our centen ary was celebrated in 1922, and was actively engaged in rectifying our finances; his death a few months later was a real tragedy. He is also one of the joint authors of this volume, and it seems in every way appropriate to include his among the few portraits in the volume.
