ON September 24, Sir William Bragg, president of the Koyal Society, opened the new science building at Shrewsbury School. Charles Darwin was at the School from 1818 until 1825, and the building, hitherto used for science teaching, erected in 1903, was named after him. It has been considerably re-modlled and improved for chemistry teaching under the present building programme. The new building was dedicated “in thankful commemoration of the life and work of Charles Darwin”.
