James Glaisher (1809 -1903) was for 34 years superintendent of the department of meteorology and magnetism at the Greenwich Observatory, help publishing his standard dew-point tables which are still in use. He established the British Meteorological Society in 1850 and the Aeronautical Society in 1866. As a convinced Bible-believing Christian, he was one of the signers of the famous Declaration of 1864, affirming this belief in response to the tide of Darwinism then sweeping the country.
