Hindle CSAC 61/5/78 DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The material was received from Miss Phyllis Barclay-Smith, C.B.E. Many of the items are in poor and fragile condition. ' The collection covers most aspects of Hindle's scientific career, and includes some information not elsewhere recorded, such as the proposed expedition to Uganda and Nyasaland , in September 1914 (see B.5-B.9) and Hindle's reported death in Africa (see A.2); the box of publications (C.55), though not complete, contains several items not recorded either in the Bibliography of the Royal Society — Memoir (A.1) or the 'List of Publications' (A.2), and, in conjunction with Section C, gives a fuller picture of Hindle's scientific and general writings than would otherwise obtain. J. Loeb, J.£. Marchoux and other colleagues are also clear (see under Index of correspondents), and his attempt to improve international understanding by means Hindle's friendly relations with G.H.F.

Section B (scientific research and activities) is the largest in the col- lection, and includes scientific material (laboratory notebooks, professional F.R.S., as his 'electicism and opportunism in science, in that the nature of his research was governed by the conditions in which he happened to be living at the time'; an example of this might be his observations at Dax on the fauna of hot and the incident of laboratory infection which affected him, his assistants, and correspondence) und some biographical and administrative correspondence relating to appointments, tenure and the like. fully covered, notably his work on kala-azar, yellow fever and other viruses, The major fields of Hindle's work are hospital stoff attending them. described by the author of the Royal Society Memoir, Professor P.C.C.

Its purpose was to undertake research into the effects of dipping solutions and methods on cattle exposed to infection by cattle Trypanosomiases (see B.7. for a de- tailed exposé of the project). It was to be a joint venture of the Quick Laboratory, Cambridge, and the Cooper Laboratory for Economic Research, Watford, financial sup- port being provided by a grant from the Colonial Office to Professor G.H.F. Nuttall (Director of the Quick Laboratory), by a personal grant from P.A. Molteno, and by the Cooper Laboratory. Hindle was to be Nuttall's Assistant in the field. Correspondence March-August 1914.

Royal Society's Kala-Azar Commission fn China 1925427 Hindle was a member, and later the leader, of the Commission, the purpose of which was to investigate the problem of visceral Leishmaniasis (kala-azar) in N. China. The Chinese hamster was used as the main laboratory animal in the transmission experiments, and at the end of the expedition Hindle attempted to introduce them as laboratory material in Britain, but the species failed to breed successfully. The Golden hamster, brought from the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, to Hindle's laboratory by Sau! Adler in 1931, was bred with conspicuous success as a laboratory animal and as a pet. See B.37. for correspondence relating to the unsuccessful attempt with the Chinese hamster, and B.93.~B. 100. for material on the Golden hamster.
