Author Bio for Gregory, Sir Richard Arman

Sir Richard Arman Gregory, 1st baronet (1864-1952) was an English astronomer and journalist. Born into a poor family, he was apprenticed in the shoemaking business but was quickly recognized for his talent and intelligence. The headmaster of Clifton College and friend of the author’s father offered him a post as a laboratory assistant, and his science teacher lent him the money to buy out his apprenticeship. It was at Clifton, he came across his first telescope and developed his love of astronomy. He won a scholarship to the Royal College of Science in South Kensington in 1886. In 1893 he became a freelance journalist, and became assistant editor at Nature magazine, a post he held until 1919 when he succeeded became editor. He served as editor for another nineteen years (to 1938) and is credited over his whole tenure with turning Nature into the premier science magazine it remains today. As editor, Gregory promoted a spirit of scientific free inquiry and worldwide international scientific contacts. He was also the science editor at Macmillan, the publisher of Nature, for 50 years. And he was a professor of astronomy (1897-1918) at Queen’s College, London, one of the pioneering institutions for the higher education of women. He chronicled the role of science in the liberation of human thought.
