TitleLetter from Andrew Balfour, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, to Sir John Rose Bradford, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date10 March 1926
DescriptionSubmits a memo on Prof Leiper's proposal for work in British Guiana and the West Indies. Suggests that 'this part of the British Empire has in the past been sadly neglected' in terms of research grants, drawing criticisms from Americans and making the region reliant on the Rockefeller Foundation -- suggests that streptococcus, nephritis, Bright's disease and malaria are the main areas that need research -- thinks that the Royal Society might cooperate with the London School of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene on this. p128-32.
