TitleMemorandum for the Biological Secretary, regarding a paper 'Shape in relation to fine structure in the bristles of Drosophila melanogaster' by Anthony David Lees and L E R Picken
Date11 May 1944
DescriptionSectional Committee: Zoology

An acting chairman is needed for the paper. John Burdon Sanderson Haldane refereed a similar paper by Anthony David Lees and Conrad Hal Waddington in 1942. The manuscript has already been seen by William Thomas Astbury and John Desmond Bernal.

Notes in green pencil suggest Vincent Brian Wigglesworth as acting chairman for the paper, and asks if he could look at the paper himself. Questions if the paper by Anthony David Lees and Conrad Hal Waddington was really similar to the current paper.
