Scope and Contents

Rutherford is delighted it is possible for [Mathilde Hertz] to receive an award. He feels that the AAC's attitude is of as much symbolic as practical importance due to the prestige 'Germany of the old days' gained from [Heinrich Hertz's] discoveries. Will write to Thomson about new soureces of funds for her.
