The Rockefeller Gift to Medical Science


AS was announced in the Daily Mail of June 11, the Rockefeller Foundation for Medical Research has made the generous gift of a sum of 1,205,000l. for the advancement of teaching and research in the Medical School of University College and Hospital. Owing to the inconsiderate and premature manner in which the statement was made public, it is natural that some mistakes should have been made and the objects of the gift in certain respects misunderstood.
