Letter to Adams, Walter 1933-1936, 1935-11-08

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/10

Scope and Contents

Rutherford introduces [Mathilde] Hertz, daughter of [Heinrich Hertz], who has some Jewish ancestry and who cannot now live in Germany. As a zoologist 'of standing', Rutherford encloses a letter from Professor [Augustus Daniel] Imms saying he will allow her to work in 'the laboratory' [the Entomological Department of the Rothamsted Experimental Station?]. Rutherford is impressed with her personality and Dr Uvarow [Boris Petrovitch Uvarov] of the [Natural History Museum] Entomological Departments knows her work. Subject to available funds, does Walters think the AAC can help her? Hertz is 'quite prepared to work on the locust problem' of concern to the Colonial Office.
