The New Chair of Human and Comparative Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons
Thanks to the munificence of Sir William H. Collins, a new chair of human and comparative anatomy has been founded at the Royal College of Surgeons. The first to hold it is the distinguished anatomist F. Wood Jones, who occupies the chair of anatomy at the University of Manchester. After graduating in the University of London in 1904 he became demonstrator of anatomy at the London Hospital and St. Thomas's Hospital. After some years as medical officer in the Far East he was appointed anthropologist to the Egyptian government and took part in the archeological survey of Nubia. In 1919 he was appointed professor of anatomy at Adelaide University, which position he resigned in 1927 on taking the Rockefeller chair of physical anthropology in the University of Hawaii.
