D. Stewart, curator of the division of physical anthropology, gave an All-University Lecture at the University of Wisconsin on March 29. His subject was the "Diseases of Prehistoric Man." --- DISTINGUISHED GREAT-GRANDFATHER All the world loves a lover, but did you know that the Smithsonian Institution has a reason to be especially interested in the Prince Rainier III - Grace Kelly romance? The Prince's great-grandfather, his Serene Highness Prince Albert I of Monaco, was a distinguished scientist and patron of marine zoology. Around the turn of the century he founded the famous Institut Oceanographique and Museum of Monaco, with which the Smithsonian Institution has been in exchange ever since. Many sumptuous volumes and bulletins have come and are still coming to the library as a result of Prince Albert's deep interest in and generous support of science. In 1921, Prince Albert visited America for the last time, and the Regents and Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution gave a reception in his honor after his address before the National Academy of Sciences in the auditorium of the Natural History Building. The late Austin H. Clark, then curator of echinoderms, who was detailed to act as the scientific aide-de-camp to the Prince during his stay in Washington, had many interesting stories to tell about the days he spent escorting the quiet, scholarly old gentleman about the city. All good wishes to the great-grandson of this distinguished man, Albert I of Monaco! --- ACTIVE IN PAN AMERICAN MEETING The third meeting of the "Program of the History of Americas," co-sponsored by the Commission on History of the Pan American Institute of Geography and History, and the Department of Cultural Affairs of the Pan American Union, was held on March 26-28 at the Library of Congress.
