    DR. H. R. MILL has been elected a member of the German Academy of Naturalists at Halle “in recognition of his original contributions to geographical science and particularly to Oceanography and the furtherance of Polar research”. This Academy, the full title of which is the Kaiserlich Leopoldinisch-Carolinisch Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher, was founded at Schweinfurth in 1652 by a group of medical men who called themselves the Argonauts, as their object was to explore new realms of science in order to bring back the ‘gold of knowledge’ for the benefit of mankind, an aim which it now defines as the study of Nature for the good of humanity.
