BARTLETT, William Pitt Greenwood, mathematician, born in Boston, Massachusetts, 27 October 1837; died in Cambridge, Massachusetts, 13 January 1865. He was graduated at Harvard in 1858, and was one of the proctors of the College from 1859 till 1862. He became one of the corps of computers for the "Nautical almanac," and the character of his work is shown by the fact that, owing to the condition in which it was left at his death, another computer was able to take it up without the loss of any of Mr. Bartlett's labor. He published several papers on the elements of quaternions in the "Mathematical Monthly," and on interpolation in the "Memoirs of the American Academy."
