Reference numberRR/72/155
TitleLetter from Paul Gordon Fildes, on a paper 'The stability of D-arabinose adaption of Bact. lactis aerogenes' by Cyril Norman Hinshelwood and S Jackson to D C Martin, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society
Date6 May 1949
DescriptionThe question of refereeing is difficult as this line of Hinshelwood's is new and there are no Fellows with expert knowledge in the subject. All the experts are 'young men not yet raised to the dignity'. Marjory Stephenson would have fitted the bill but she has since passed away. Only non medical bacteriologists fit the bill and he can only suggest Thornton.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, 1950].
