The Right Hon. Lord Moyne, P.C


IN the preface to "Atlantic Circle", Lord Moyne says that had it not been for the South African War (for which he volunteered instead of going to the university) he would have become a biologist. A man endowed with his gifts of character and intellect, reinforced by a tireless energy and ample means, could scarcely have failed to make his mark. As it was, science had to take second place as an intermittent hobby pursued in the intervals of an exceptionally strenuous public life; and it was not until the last few years before the War that Lord Moyne was able to indulge more fully his taste for the biological sciences, among which anthropology took a prominent place.
