TitleCopy letter from Sir Gavin Rylands De Beer to David Christie Martin
Date28 May 1956
Description[Attached to MDA/A/16/72] Is engaged with preparing "tableau d'honneur" of XVth International Congress of Zoology. Asks for suggestions on what to do about Cyril Hinshelwood's being noticeably absent from this Congress. Brings attention to Hinshelwood and Robert Robinson's presence at 'less important' centenary, Perkin Centenary Celebration, and hopes that no biologists will read into this a discrimination between the A and B subjects.
