Administrative/Biographical history:

It has not been possible to trace any information about R L Thompson beyond the facts which can be deduced from the internal evidence in these notebooks, i.e. that he was an undergraduate at Keble College Oxford and came from Warwick. He seems to have been at Oxford during the early 1920s, from the few loose dated items in GC/35/5. He does not seem to have become a doctor, as his name does not appear in the Medical Directory.


Scope and content/abstract:

Lecture notes on comparative embryology, psychology and prehistory, Keble College, Oxford, early 1920s.
