Reports of Visits to Foreign Laboratories, vol. 3 (1913-16) [Illustrated Typoscript in 7 volumes] Reproduced with the kind permission of Dr. Cecil E. Leith

Such intercourse is of mutual benefit and renders possible a 
entente cordiale between ourselves and the laboratories visited. The 
entire independence of the Nutrition Laboratory from all other existing 
institutions, the broad principles of administration adopted by the 
3oard of Trustees and the President, and the select field, of research 
have raised this laboratory above many others and hence entree can he

held triennially in different European cities gives an opportunity for 
making known to each other the workers in the various scientific fields

for I have had the opportunity to visit these men in their laboratories 
and frequently at their homes, and thus see them at work, tell them of our
