IN 1925 the Carnegie Institution of Washington undertook a programme of research into the problem of reproduction in monkeys. Its first step was to establish a colony of rhesus macaques in its Department of Embryology, which was then directed by Dr. George L. Streeter. The Department is next door to the Anatomy School of Johns Hopkins University, where a few years earlier Dr. George W. Corner had begun similar work on the same species of primate. The close affiliation of the two laboratories proved fortunate, and the success of the Institution's programme of research, now directed by Dr. Corner, is marked by a number of monographs published in its “Contributions to Embryology”. Five of these monographs have now been collected in a single volume.
