THE joint committee consisting of representatives from the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Royal Physical Society and the Royal Scottish Geographical Society has awarded the Bruce Prize to Dr. G. C. L. Bertram for valuable biological work in the Arctic and Antarctic during 1932-37 ; and especially for his work as biologist with the Graham Land Expedition during 1934-37, when he took part in the important sledging journey which discovered King George VI Sound. His particular work was on seals, and he has written an important memoir entitled “The Biology of the Weddell and Crabeater Seals”, published by the British Museum (Natural History) in September 1940 in the British Graham Land Expedition Reports. In addition, Dr. Bertram is the author of a more popular book on the technique of polar travel entitled “Arctic and Antarctic”.
