Ernest William Hobson died in Cambridge, England. G. H. Hardy wrote, "Although he lived to be 76, he was active almost up to his death; his last book (and perhaps in some ways his best) was published when he was 74. He was a singular exception to the general rule that good mathematicians do their best work when they are young." (J. London Math. Soc. (1934) s1-9 (3): 225-237)
