Foreword by Sir Humphry Rolleston. Preface states 'These slight sketches of the lives and works of the eminent scientists who form the subjects of the essays contained in this book, were suggested to me by seeing their names written large on the walls of the new building of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine as I walked down Gower Street one day in Agust 1928'.
