Mathematical Gazetteer of the British Isles

Isaac Milner (1751-1820) was born in Leeds, Yorkshire.

William Herschel (1738-1822) was Director of Concerts in Leeds from Feb 1762 to Spring 1766, writing six symphonies for grand orchestra and at least one violin concerto.

W. H. Bragg (1862-1942) was Cavendish professor of physics at the University of Leeds, 1909-1915, when he developed his sons ideas into x-ray diffraction devices, c. 1912.

Leonard James Rogers (1862-1933), of the Rogers-Ramanujan identities, was professor of mathematics at the Yorkshire College, 1888-1919, which became the University of Leeds.

The University bought the prototype version of Bill Phillips' economic model analogue computer using water flow and it remains there as a prized relic.
