DescriptionProfessor Robert Wallace, Professor of Agriculture and Rural Economy at the University of Edinburgh, called yesterday to see Dr [Michael] Foster with reference to the enquiry into Tsetse Fly and Rinderpest.

Foster will be unable to see Wallace before Wallace leaves London so Harrison has sent Wallace a note suggesting he call on Lister. Provides Wallace's current contact address.
