April 17, 1951 was the fortieth anniversary of the death of Edmund Montgomery; and on that date the Southern Methodist University Press. published the first biography of this eminent British-American philosopher. Handsome, urbane, educated in medicine at Heidelberg, Berlin, Bonn, Wiirzburg, Prague, and Vienna, member of the Royal College, of Physicians of London, this scientist-philosopher whose work was. admired by Europe's keenest intellects, lived for many years obscurely on a plantation at Hempstead, Texas. A less likely cultural home for this illegitimate son of a Scottish lord could scarcely be imagined.... This admirable biography of Edmund Montgomery (1835-1911) philosopher and scientist, and of his wife Elisabet Ney (1833-1907), Bavarian sculptor, leaves little to be desired.
