|Report, 'Some observations on the crystalline lens', by Clare Harris
|A study of the biochemistry of the eye lens, using specimens from dogs, cats and rabbits and ox-eye lenses obtained from slaughter-houses. Prepared for the Royal Society's Glassworkers' Cataract Committee, but not published. Clare A. Harris was a medically qualified clinical assistant at the Royal London Ophthalmic Hospital, Moorfields.
According to W.H. Brock's study of the Glassworker's Cataracts' Committee [in Notes and Records of the Royal Society] 'Harris's report proved profoundly unsatisfactory and the Committee did not recommend its publication or that it should be sent to the Home Office. Instead, probably on the advice of Gowland Hopkins, the investigation was passed to Dorothy Rose Adams, who had graduated from Girton College with first-class honours in physiology in 1923'.
