Professor E. M. P. Widmark. 
Since we were here three years ago Professor Widmark (see figure 48) 
has a new laboratory, which is combined, in part, with Professor Overton's 
laboratory in pharmacology. The building is extremely modern and contains 
many features in construction and planning that could well be copied in many 
other laboratories. Professor Widmark exhibited at the Congress an interest¬ 
ing shaking machine for extracting liquids with various liquids. This seemed 
to have great importance, for I heard people referring to it later on. 
Widmark was, as usual, very serious and discussed his problems and takes his 
whole position there in a very intense way. He was much interested in the 
problem of milling wheat in the bread proposition. Thus, he felt that Rubner 
did not realize that although he feeds animals the remaining part of the wheat, 
it really costs the animal a considerable amount just to grow. ’Widmark thinks 
that this is not reasonable. He told me that there was a great deal of work 
being done in Sweden in agriculture. They have established special experiment 
stations for developing wheat, so as to extend the area of its cultivation 
always farther and farther north. At the present time the lower part of 
Sweden, Sk£ne, is devoted in large part to wheat, and they expect ultimately 
to grow all of their own wheat. I was sorry not to have spent more time with 
Professor Widmark,for, although he is doing no work exactly along our line, he 
is a man of stimulating ideas and well worth visiting.
