Metallographic Researches: Based on a Course of Lectures delivered in the United States in 1925

Abstract

THE practice which has been developed of late years in the United States of inducing a European metallurgist of standing to give courses of lectures on his own researches at various centres is certainly an excellent one. Not only does it bring American metallurgists and students of the subject into personal touch with men who would otherwise remain nothing but names to them, but it also brings the trans-Atlantic visitor into touch with American affairs and institutions and sometimes engenders a higher degree of respect for them than had previously been entertained. Most of the lecturers thus brought to America have been British, but recently Dr. Carl Benedicks of Sweden and the German metallurgist, Dr. Guertler, have been included in the list. In the case of Dr. Benedicks, the subject matter of the lectures given has been put into book form under the title at the head of this notice.
