Anniversary of a pioneer science journalist
Richard Arman Gregory was born on 29 January 1864 in Bristol. (There is no direct connection as far as I can make out with the later Bristolian Professor Richard Gregory.) He contributed in its early days to the science journal Nature, going on to become its assistant editor, and was also scientific editor to the publisher MacMillan for thirty-five years. He collaborated with HG Wells on the popularisation of science.
