Book Notes 415
This book tells the story of Smithson and his bequest and
describes all the manifold activities in which the Institution
has engaged in its hundred years. There is no doubt that Smith-
son's desires have been fulfilled; the Institution has increased
knowledge by investigation and research in a great many fields
-anthropology, ethnology, archeology, astrophysics, zoology,
geography, geology, meteorology, mineralogy-and has diffused
knowledge through its publications, international exchange
service, museums, art gallery, and National Zoological Park.
The First Hundred Years of the Smithsonian Institution is
worthy of the achievements it commemorates. Not only the
United States but all nations where scientific research has been
carried on have benefited from the work of the Smithsonian.
