The papers of E. H. Neville and A. R. Forsyth were also the gift of Raymond Neville in Feb. 1970.

Herman was born on the 6th of February 1861 in Bath and later attended King Edwards school there. In 1878 he was awarded an entrance scholarship to Trinity College Cambridge. In his time at Cambridge he won the 1st Smith’s prize. He received his degree in 1882; the following year he was awarded a fellowship, and in 1885 he received his M.A.

In 1884 Herman moved to Liverpool, where he took the position of Professor of Mathematics, at the University College. He held this post until 1886, before returning to Cambridge. A year after his return, Herman began lecturing in mathematics at Cambridge and then in 1906, became a University Lecturer. During his time at Cambridge he was also appointed Senior Proctor, 1895, and Junior Proctor, 1900 and 1918.

The papers primarily consist of mathematical notes on differential geometry, and are accompanied by a small group of printed pamphlets and correspondence.

The mathematical papers were the gift of Raymond Neville, Feb. 1970. The printed pamphlets and letters appear to have been the gift of J. W. S. Cassels in July 1973.

The papers were sent by E. G. Gallop to E. H. Neville, Fellow of Trinity, March 1928, and inherited by Raymond Neville, the brother of E. H. Neville. W. J. Langford sent the mathematical papers to Trinity College Library on Raymond's behalf in Feb. 1970. Langford sent J. W. S. Cassels "a few papers" of R. A. Herman's at the same time. Cassels then sent these papers to Trinity in July 1973, which were described in a note at the bottom of the letter of donation as "letters and offprints" [now HERM B and C?]

Published

Mathematical notes on differential geometry, with a small collection of nearly 100 tripos and examination questions dated c. 1884-1924 [A59-60] and 8 more dated 1889-1897 [A185].

The notes were originally clipped together in groups with titles in most cases. These titles have been given on the undated finding aid which has been linked to this record.

Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge - Is sending two packets of Herman's notes on Differential Geometry, "18 lbs of them nearly"; is not sending a larger packet of other notes on Solids, as he does not think there is anything in them of interest; notes that among Herman's notes were the proofs of Forsyth's book on DIfferential Geometry. Is going away to Buckinghamshire and says that Neville's notes on spherical harmonics may be sent to him to await his return in Cambridge.
