THE meeting of the British Association in Dundee, which will run from August 30 until September 6, will be the third to be held in that city. The preliminary programme has just been issued. It is stated that for Dundee the present year is one of civic jubilee, for the town “attained the dignity of a city” in 1889: this coincidence with the meeting of the Association will not be overlooked. In referring to the previous meetings, mention is made of that in 1912 as “the occasion of a splendid act of generosity by a citizen of Dundee, the late Sir James Caird, whose gift of £11,000 to the funds of the Association enabled it to commemorate his name in the Caird Fund” for research.
