Un-numbered copy of a letter from Ledermann to Thomson regarding Ledermann's DSc, 21 Oct 1938

Identifier: Coll-1064/72

Scope and Contents

Ledermann expresses his disappointment at the decision by the faculty to refuse his DSc on the basis that he is leaving Edinburgh one term before his period of research has expired. He asks for Thomson's advice on the matter.

He also informs Thomson that his paper on sampling distribution is likely to be printed in Biometrika; and that an article he wrote titled The Orthogonal Transformation of a Factorial Matrix into Itself is to be published in Psychometrika.
