TitleCopy letter from Francis Alexander Towle, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. [Edward Provan] Cathcart, FRS
Date14 October 1926
DescriptionWarns that there is little chance of an application to the Lawrence Studentship being successful. This is because the Royal Society has taken the recommendations of the Tropical Diseases Committee, that is to use the income of the fund for expenses for the investigation of filarasis in the West Indies [Caribbean]. Mentions the investigations also being funded with the aid of an anonymous bequest for Medical Research.
