THE ninety-fifth meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science was held at Pittsburgh on December 27–January 2, and during the week members of this and associated organisations numbering nearly four thousand participated there in a most successful series of meetings. Joined with the city as hosts were the Carnegie Institute of Technology, the University of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania College for Women, Duquesne University and the Mellon Institute. Dr. Thomas S. Baker, president of the Carnegie Institute of Technology, was chairman of the local committee and Dr. Davenport Hooker, of the University of Pittsburgh, vice-chairman. Arrangements for sessions were admirably provided in the group of academic and public buildings in the Schenley Park centre.
