FOR many years, mycologists throughout the world have reaped the benefits of the great work carried out by Dr. E. J. Butler, the first director of the Imperial Mycological Institute, Kew. Following upon his resignation, workers in all parts of Australia contributed to a presentation fund organized by Dr. W. L. Waterhouse of the University of Sydney. Acting on their behalf, the High Commissioner for the Commonwealth in London, Mr. S. M. Bruce, kindly consented to make the presentation, which took place at the Institute on February 8 in the presence of the members of the staff, most of whom had been with Dr. Butler throughout his term of office. One of the gifts was an inscribed table clock made of Australian woods.
