DescriptionMr Howard Collins of Churchfield, Edgbaston, Birmingham, offers £20 to aid someone "whose ability in biological research is not equalled by their resources". Collins wishes this sum to be regarded as a single donation but it may be repeated. The Treasurer, John Evans, asks if Foster has anyone he wishes to nominate for this aid, or Rix wonders if he should write to Professor Burdon Sanderson.
