William Clifford born in Exeter, England. He played an important role in introducing the ideas of Riemann and other writers on non-Euclidean geometry to English mathematicians. "Clifford was a first-class gymnast, whose repertory apparently included hanging by his toes from the crossbar of a weather cock on a church tower, a feat befitting a High Churchman, as he then was."
