The British Association and a Centenary Fund


    IN 1931 the British Association for the Advancement of Science will hold its centenary meeting in London. No more appropriate place of meeting could have been selected. The Association may justly claim to be fully representative of science as a whole within the British Isles; by its overseas meetings it has stimulated scientific activities and focused the aims and interests of scientific workers in the dominions and dependencies. This dual function makes it inevitable that so momentous an occasion in its history should be endowed with a significance which can most fittingly find expression only in the capital city of the Empire.
