TitleLetter from Leonard Hill, the London Hospital Medical College, Turner Street, Mile End, London, 17 June 1901, to 'Dear Sir' [William Abbott Herdmann?]
Date17 June 1901
DescriptionHe would like to propose that the Gunning Fund should be devoted to the furtherance of research into metabolism, to be carried out by Dr. [Marcus Seymour] Pembrey at Guy's Hospital and Dr. J. [John James Rickard] Macleod at the London Hospital. He gives a summary of Macleod's suitability and previous experience at Leipzig. Hill does not believe the Gunning Fund could be better spent, noting the importance of metabolic researches, citing the practical national benefit of researches on the marching soldier.
