Prof. T. R. Elliott, C.B.E., F.R.S., and the Beit Trust


    MANY generations of Beit Memorial research fellows will hear with regret of the retirement of Prof. Elliott from the honorary secretaryship of the Advisory Board to the Beit Memorial Trustees, an appointment he has held since 1930 when he succeeded the late Sir James Kingston Fowler. The Beit Trust, one of the first great benefactions for medical research in Great Britain, has played a very notable part in the training of a number of skilled investigators who have made important contributions in most branches of scientific medicine. From its inception in 1910, the Trust has been particularly fortunate in its first two honorary secretaries to the Advisory Board, both of whom have been distinguished by their enthusiasm for its work, pride in its achievements and vision in its possibilities. The continuity of the generous policy of the Trust, the ease of its adjustment to changing conditions without any lowering of standards or narrowing of aims, have owed much to their work.
