Fellowship of the New Zealand Institute


    AT the annual meeting in 1919 of the Board of Governors of the New Zealand Institute it was decided to establish a fellowship of the institute, since —apart from Hutton and Hector memorial medals, which can be gained only by very few—there are no honours attainable in the Dominion for those engaged in scientific research, the number of whom has greatly increased in recent years, while more branches of science are pursued than formerly. This fellowship, which entitles the recipient to place the letters “F.N.Z.Inst.” after his name, is limited to forty fellows, and not more than four are henceforth to be elected in any one year until the number is complete, after which only such vacancies as occur may be filled.
