A Year's Work of the Carnegie Institution

    Article metrics


    THE Carnegie Institution was founded, and endowed with 2,000,000l., in order “to encourage, in the broadest and most liberal manner, investigation, research and discovery, and the application of knowledge to the improvement of mankind.” The year-book for 1906 contains a general report on the work of the year, and short abstracts of the special investigations in progress. To the reader it affords abundant opportunity of “fine confused feeding”; to the reviewer a mass of projects and results of which it is hopeless to give any adequate account.
