Sir Arthur Harden, F.R.S


BIOCHEMISTS the world over will have heard with sincere regret of the death of Arthur Harden on June 17 in his seventy-fifth year. By his late colleagues at the Lister Institute and by a host of old pupils from many lands who learnt at his feet or at one time collaborated with him, his loss will be particularly felt, for Harden who, on his retirement in 1930, had completed thirty-three years of service as head of the Biochemical Department, was in himself an institution and a veritable tower of strength in the Lister community.
