University of Birmingham: Chair of Zoology


    THE appointment of Prof. L. T. Hogben, F.R.S., to the chair of zoology in the University of Birmingham, represents a serious loss to the University of Aberdeen where, in the course of a short but fruitful tenure of the regius chair of natural history, he had built up one of the most attractive and active departments in Great Britain. Both at Aberdeen and Cape Town, Prof. Hogben adapted the policy of his department to fit in with local biological interests and exploited to the fullest extent the natural resources of the neighbourhood. At Birmingham he will find ample scope for similar activity, and his greater proximity to London will enable him to attend meetings from which his absence has, too long, been felt.
