George William Hill

George William Hill (1838-1914) is considered one of the nineteenth century's best mathematicians. He worked with Simon Newcomb, and is known especially for his theory of the motions of Jupiter and Saturn, which yielded accurate ephemerides for those planets. He was a member of the Nautical Almanac Office from 1861-1892. Painting by Beverly Stautz
