Reports of Visits to Foreign Laboratories, vol. 4 (1923) [Illustrated Typoscript in 7 volumes] Reproduced with the kind permission of Dr. Cecil E. Leith
Benedict, Francis Gano
Cambridge, England. 
Department of Biochemistry at the Addenbrooke Hospital. 
Professor Ü. G. L. Wolf. 
On my visit to Cambridge unfortunately Professor F. Gowan Hopkins 
was away, but we saw Professor C. G. L. Wolf, formerly at the Cornell 
University Medical College in New York and now in charge of the labora¬ 
tory at the Addenbrooke Hospital. He had a Tissot type of respiration 
apparatus and was doing gas analysis with the Haldane gas analysis 
apparatus. One got the impression that Dr. Wolf was distinctly falling 
backwards in his scientific work and becoming more or less a routinist 
for routine urine and gaseous metabolism measurements. It seemed a great 
pity that this man of superabundant energy and very widely read should 
be more or less degenerating into a routinist. One got the impression 
that he was not fully content with the experience there and yet his own 
private laboratory in a nearby building was very well equipped and he 
had a very good assistant. One got the distinct impression that the war 
had left him very much upset in his plans, as it has so many others. 
A photograph was taken of Dr. Wolf at his desk in the Addenbrooke 
Hospital (see figure#^ ) and another photograph (see figure ) taken on 
the lawn at their estate, South Acre, Cambridge, showing the family group 
Dr. and Mrs. Wolf and their three daughters (the son was away), F. G. B, 
and Mrs. Benedict. 
A visit at Dr. Wolf’s delightful home brought out many interesting 
side lights, but the general impression remains that Wolf is through with 
constructive work. It is a great pity.
