38 (38), Thomson to Ledermann, 22 Oct 1938

Identifier: Coll-1064/73

Scope and Contents

Thomson expresses his disappointment over the decision of the Faculty of Science not allowing Ledermann to submit his DSc. He encourages him to speak to staff at St Andrews and make a formal application, and tells him he will speak to both Edinburgh University and St Andrews University if this is unsuccessful.

Thomson comments that C Spearman has written an Anti-Thomson article in the British Journal of Psychology, and tells him that The Factorial Analysis of Human Ability should be published very soon. He comments that Ledermann must have had an anxious time in the last few months, and enquires as to how his family are in Palestine.
