WE regret to record the death of Mrs. Howes, widow of the late Prof. G. B. Howes, who succeeded Huxley at the Royal College of Science. Mrs Howes died in Kenya Colony, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Rae, on July 4, aged seventy-nine years. Forty years ago she made the home of her husband a resort for the younger school of biologists, and did much to forward the cause of modern biology.
