Sir John Frederick William Herschel, astronomer, was born in Slough, Berkshire, England on March 7, 1792. He graduated from Cambridge in 1813 and was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in the same year. Herschel took an active part in the foundation of the Royal Astronomical Society and later served as its president. From 1834-1838, he conducted a scientific expedition in South Africa to survey the southern hemisphere. Herschel died on May 11, 1871 in Collingwood, Kent, England. He was widely recognized as the leading British scientist of his day, and he contributed important advances in mathematics, physics, photochemistry, philosophy of science, and above all, astronomy.

Sir John Frederick William Herschel (1792-1871) was an astronomer and prominent member of several British scientific societies of his day.

J. F. W. Herschel was born at Slough, England, March 7, 1792. His father, Sir William Herschel, was a renowned astronomer. After studying at Dr. Gretton’s School at Hitcham, and at Eton, J. F. W. Herschel was educated at home by a mathematician by the name of Rogers. Herschel graduated as Senior Wrangler from St. Johns College, Cambridge at the age of seventeen. He founded, along with George Peacock and Charles Babbage, the Analytical Society of Cambridge – an intellectual discussion group which encouraged its members to “do their best to leave the world wiser than they found it.” In 1813 Herschel was elected a fellow of the Royal Society.

In 1814 he entered as a student at Lincoln’s Inn to study law. He turned, however, to science. He reported in his journal on the 10 September, 1816 that he is “going under my father’s direction to take up stargazing.” Herschel distinguished himself in astronomy for the rest of his life.

Herschel co-founded the Royal Astronomical Society, and served two terms as president, starting in 1827. In 1829 he married Margaret Brodie. In 1831 he was knighted. Of particular scientific interest to Herschel were double stars and sun spots. He made numerous advances in the development of telescopes and microscopes, as well as the fields of magnetism and optics. He published one hundred fifty two papers and was a trustee of the British Museum.

J. F. W. Herschel died in 1871 and was buried in Westminster Abbey near the grave of Sir Isaac Newton.
