Albert F. Ravenshear

  By searching for "line of closest fit" in Google Books yesterday I came across a reference to Ravenshear's letter to the editor in Nature by Keesom. By making another search for "A. F. Ravenshear" I was able to piece together a consistent picture of him which is shown in the following chronology.

1882 Whitworth Scholar

1899 Her Majesty's Patent Office

1899 Testimony and Authority in Mind

1901 Use of Least Squares in Physics in Nature

1904 name mentioned in The English Patent System

Supplemental (Sep 23):

1908 The Industrial and Commercial Influence of the English Patent System
