Nature volume 162, page 100 (17 July 1948) | Download Citation



As a memorial to the late Dr. Douglas Edward Lea, the Hospital Physicists Association has decided to found a memorial lecture", to be given biennially during one of the meetings of the Association, by a worker of distinction in the field to which Dr. Lea had made many outstanding contributions, namely, the actions of radiation on living cells. The lectures will be open to the public, and the Association has set up a Trust Fund to cover the expenses of these lectures in perpetuity. Any income in excess of that required to meet the expenses of the lectures will be devoted to scientific research or publication. Friends of the late Dr. D. E. Lea who may wish to contribute to this Fund are asked to communicate in the first place with Mr. J. W. Boag, Medical Research Council, Hammersmith Hospital, London, W.12, who will notify them of the way in which contributions should be made.
