Scope and content

Letter from Sir L. A. Selby-Bigge of the Board of Education to Principal E. H. Griffiths, regarding the call up of academic staff under the Derby Scheme. He reports that the Board will be applying the procedure of Circular 931, 26 Nov 1916 (Special Provision respecting Advanced Students of Science & Technology). Selby-Bigge encloses a form for completion by any University teacher of advanced physical science and technology, who is engaged in work relevant to the war effort, the interruption of which would be detrimental to the public interest. His case for exemption from call up under the Derby Scheme would be considered by Lord Derby. Shorthand annotations.
