    JOHNSTONE regarded a Festschrift as the ideal honour to a scholar, and it is therefore appropriate that this volume of contributions by his friends should be issued in his memory. A biographical note by Prof. F. J. Cole tells us that Johnstone was born in Ayrshire in 1870, became an apprentice woodcarver and a qualified crafts man, and then went with a National scholarship to the Royal College of Science, London, where he came under the influence of Howes. Soon after, finishing the course, he was appointed, in 1898, assistant in the Fisheries Laboratory, Liverpool, under Herdman, whom he succeeded in 1920 as professor of oceanography, a post he held until his death in 1932.
