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

impression is that the laboratory is distinctly overdirected and over¬ 
organized. The multiplicity of details in its organization points 
certainly towards a deficiency in output. It seems to be inventoried 
ad infinitum, each room having its own special inventory and each shelf 
being specially arranged and numbered. It seems to me it is utterly 
impossible to carry out this inventory method where there is much work 
to be done. As a matter of fact there appeared to be but little work 
in progress. This may have been due to the fact that they were pre¬ 
paring for the large Congress which, of course, kept them very busy 
Hamburger himself is not doing any work at present as the Congress 
occupies all of his time. He had no suggestions to make with regard 
to the alcohol program for he was evidently too busy then to read the 
program over at all critically. 
He is especially interested in haemolysis and had just received 
Richet’s Dictionary containing his article on "Isotonie". His 
chemical assistants were working on blood and sodium chloride and also 
sodium bromide, using a high power centrifuge and reading off the pre¬ 
cipitate on the graduated part of the tube. Hamburger's laws and 
researches are altogether too difficult for me to understand as they 
are entirely outside of my province. He is a great admirer of Donder 
who was formerly his chief. 
Hamburger has countless ingenious details of administration. 
The reprints received go first to his office and after fourteen days 
are removed and filed. His distribution of reprints is given a 
given a great deal of attention. He lias printed labels for shipping 
reprints to people on his mailing list, with a special book to check 
up what is sent to each individual instead of the library card system
