John Stanley Plaskett: The Twenty-Seventh Bruce Medalist

John Plaskett was a re-entry student. Today, many students begin their higher education late and work full time, but this was unusual in the 1890s. Yet Plaskett, the mechanician in charge of physics apparatus at the University of Toronto, enrolled as a student at 30. Attending but a few lectures, he earned his bachelor's degree with honors four years later.
