Miss ISABELLA DAVIDSON ROMANES, of Edinburgh, who died in 1932, bequeathed to the University Court a sum of £2,000 in memory of her brothers Robert and James, chemists, who graduated B.Sc. in the University of Edinburgh, in 1874 and 1880 respectively. The elder brother, moreover, obtained the degree of D.Sc. in 1876; he was later scientific chemist in the Government School, Rangoon. The University Court has inter alia instituted a biennial Romanes lectureship. The first lecture was given on May 24 by Prof. H. Wieland, of Munich, on “Some Enzymic Reactions of Yeast”.
