AN international congress in honour of the hundredth anniversary of Mendeleeff's birth was held last September in Leningrad with a splendour appropriate to his importance as the greatest Russian man of science. The official list mentioned ‘delegate's from many countries. As, however, the Russian Academy of Science had preferred to send personal invitations to scientific workers abroad instead of requesting societies and associations to send their representatives, we should more properly describe those who took part in the congress as guests. There were 26 foreign participators and about 300 official Russian delegates, besides some 1,400 unofficial Russians, who attended the lectures.
