Some notes and some comments on Bureau history
MetadataShow full item record
The historical notes which follow are necessarily brief; and Bureau staff will find considerably more detail, on some aspects, in "Fifty Years of Scientific Progress" and in the Annual Reports and Technical Communications which have been published. These notes are of a general nature; they do not pretend to be a history. History has a habit of being mislaid or forgotten if not put down on paper; the problem is to find time to collate and record the material. Considerable reference has been made to our Annual Reports; some of the very early information has come from Government files; and, in the more recent decades, there has been some dependence on memory - with all the dangers which that implies. Bureau staff have reason to be proud of their organiaation - it is the best of its kind in the cane sugar world. This eminence has not been achieved easily; and the credit goes to its individual staff members over the past seventy-one years, to its organization and administration, to the team work and dedication of the entire group, and to the industry which has so loyally supported it. Norman J, King. Director.
