Physical Research in America


TWO volumes, representing the first instalments of what is promised to be an annual publication, have been received from the physical laboratories of Harvard University.1 Each contains fourteen papers contributed by the professors, staff, and students. In the preface the director, Prof. Trowbridge, acknowledges the great stimulus received by the establishment of the Thomas Jefferson Coolidge research fund, which has provided the laboratory with what the volumes show to be a very fine equipment, and has greatly increased the enthusiasm for physical research.
