Annual Conference of the Geographical Association


    THE annual conference of the Geographical Association was held at the London School of Economics on Jan. 3-5. In addition to the usual business meetings, and some discussions on special problems of the teaching of geography, there were public lectures on some recent research work; and the chief part of the presidential address was also concerned with geographical investigation. The president, Sir H. G. Lyons, gave a concise review of the year's activities and then indicated the vast mass of material now available for geographical study in the reports and maps of the many national and other surveys now at work, and some of the difficulties of access to this material. He suggested that the Association should seek the co-operation of other interested societies in attempts to obtain some satisfactory classification of, and readier access to, this material.
