Presentations to two Cambridge Botanists


    AN executive committee has recently been formed at the University of Cambridge with the view of approaching resident members of the University, past students of the Botany School, and other British and Dominion botanists for subscriptions to a fund for obtaining the portraits, in oils, of Sir Albert Seward, formerly professor of botany, and Dr. F. F. Blackman, formerly reader in botany in the University, both of whom have now retired, for presentation to them. The presentations are intended as a token of personal esteem and appreciation of the great services they have rendered both to botany and to the University. Cheques should be sent to Prof. F. T. Brooks, Botany School, Cambridge, and should be crossed “Portrait Fund”.
