Guthrie was joined in proposing Dewar for the Royal Society by 23 other Fellows who signed the certificate; these included Thomas Andrews, Frederick Abel, William Crookes, Clerk Maxwell, William Thomson, John Tyndall, Lyon Playfair, and some who will appear later in Dewar’s life. 41 Liveing’s absence is not easily explained but, by custom, Stokes was unable to sign since he was a Secretary of the Society. Nevertheless Dewar’s backing was impressive and he was elected at the first opportunity, on 7 June 1877, when there were 57 candidates and 15 elections.

He came to Cambridge in 1885 and almost at once took over from Dewar the lectures on organic chemistry although lecturing was not formally part of his duties. He lectured at first three times a week, but soon increased that load until he was lecturing nine times a week, in fractured but quite intelligible English, and was running a practical course also. His formal duties did not require him to undertake his own programme of research, but again this he did. He had been given an Hon. MA7 and had become a member of Caius, which had had its own laboratory since 1873 in which Ruhemann was to work.

The chemistry faction gained the upper hand and their attention was drawn to Dewar, possibly because of the publicity he had received when compiling his list of 53 referees to support his application for the Glasgow chair the previous year. He was to use this list again at Cambridge, noting however that he had now published 30 papers. Moreover he had also been honoured by the Chemical Society with the invitation to give a lecture, which he had recently done on 19 March, choosing as his subject the fashionable one of ‘Dissociation’.
