Dr. Arthur Ransome, F.R.S


THE death of Dr. Ransome at Bournemouth in his eighty ninth year recalls the memory of a Manchester physician who was a pioneer in the training of female health visitors, and in the investigation of tuberculosis and of the-cyclical waves of epidemic diseases. He died on July 25; and by a striking coincidence, at the first meeting earlier in the same day of Section I.—that of Preventive Medicine—of the Congress of the Royal Sanitary Institute then being held in Bournemouth, a message of appreciation of Dr. Ransome's past work had been authorised, which never reached him.
