THE Selection Committee, consisting of the presidents of the Chemical Society, the Royal Institute of Chemistry, the Society of Chemical Industry and the Pharmaceutical Society, has awarded the Harrison Memorial Prize for 1944 to Dr. Leslie F. Wiggins, of the University of Birmingham, in recognition of his researches on transformation products of the hexose sugars. His originality and resource, combined with exceptional experimental skill in these investigations, have opened new fields of theoretical interest.
