Museums Association


    THE report of the Council for 1932-33 makes very satisfactory reading. The membership rose to 801, and is now really representative of museum interests throughout Great Britain. Income for the year, at £2,785, was a record, the subscriptions of members exceeding by £268 those of the preceding year, and the net credit balance for the year was £496. The work of the Association has followed the lines of recent years. Co-operation with the Carnegie United Kingdom Trustees in the allocation of museum grants has been continued, and now all applications for grants must be made in the first place to the Association. A successful training course for museum curators was held at Manchester, the annual conference of 1932 at Birmingham, and there is the great venture of an Empire survey of museums, which began in 1931 (Museums J., 33, 206; 1933). The same number of the Journal contains an account of the very successful conference of 1933 at Norwich.
