Agricultural Advisers in Washington and London

Nature volume 149, page 549 (16 May 1942) | Download Citation



THE growing importance of agriculture, both in national and in international affairs, has in recent years necessitated certain changes in diplomatic and consular representatives. Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Holland have long had agricultural councillors attached to their consulates in London ; men of high distinction such as Mr. Harald Faber, Mr. van Rijn, Mr. I. Bagge (to mention only past officers) and others whose pre-eminence in their subject caused them to be greatly respected by experts in Great Britain. The United States has now appointed an agricultural adviser, Mr. Loyd V. Steere, who has already had some years of service in Berlin, so that he is thoroughly familiar not only with American but also with Continental conditions. Mr. Steere will be cordially welcomed by British agriculturists.
