ABSTRACT
Lennard-Jones, John Edward (1894-1954) was an English theoretical physicist. He was born John Edward Jones in Leigh, Lancashire, England, and was the son of a merchant. He received a degree in mathematics at Manchester University in 1915. After serving as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps during World War I (1914�1918), he obtained his Ph.D. in 1924 at Cambridge University. He changed his name to Lennard-Jones in 1925, when he married Kathleen Mary Lennard.
