|Title||Referee's report by James Colquhoun Irvine, on a paper 'On the association of xylan with cellulose in certain structural celluloses' by A G Norman|
|Date||30 May 1936|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Botany|
Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. 'For years I have struggled to guide these biochemical cellulose chemists and get them to work on better lines, but I am sorry to see that the influence of the Madison School has laid firm hold on this country'. Suggests the paper might be sent to the Biochemical Journal, where W G Campbell has published similar work. The experimental work is amateurish, and lacking in statistical analysis.
Endorsed on verso as received 3 June 1936.
