WHEN the complete story of the last forty years of development of experimental and applied psychology in Briitak (written, it will become clear that an enormous wnount of this development was due directle enthusiasm, foresight, scientific knowledege and organising skill of Dr. C. S. Myers. For soie Vime there was no certainty that psychology would claim him for life. Literature, music, philosophy, archaeology all attracted and held him, as well as natural science. It was, however, as a student of natural science that he gained an exhibition at Gonville and Caius College in 1891, and later a scholarship. He had a distinguished student career at Cambridge, where his interests turned chiefly in the direction of biological studies, and from physiology and anatomy he went on, through the influence of Rivers and Haddon, to experimental psychology and anthropology.
