<ul><li><p>THE SEVENTH CENSUS OF GRADUATE RESEARCH STUDENTS IN CHEMISTRY, 1930 </p><p>The Seventh Census of Graduate Research Students in Chemistry, 1930, continues the annual compilation which was first issued in 1924.* It is interesting to note the steady growth in the number of students in American universities who are undertaking research in the various fields of chemistry: 1700 in 1024, 1763 in 1925, 1882 in 1926, 1934 in 1927, 2071 in 1928, 2498 in 1929, and 2795 in 1930. The present compilation includes returns from one hundred thirty-seven universities, of which twenty-one have reported members of the faculty only engaged in chemical research. </p><p>TABLE ll </p><p>Number of Graduate Students Engaged in Research in Various Fields of Chemistry 1930 1929 1928 1927 1926 1925 1924 </p><p>Subjecl Told M D F Told Talol Total Told Talol Totol </p><p>G e n e r a l a n d Physical 520 208 312 261 448 406 430 343 332 240 </p><p>Colloid 78 39 39 32 82 86 79 58 77 69 Catalysis 44 21 23 20 34 27 28 31 33 51 Subatomic a n d </p><p>Radio 39 10 29 23 20 18 21 21 27 20 Electro-Inorganic 49 26 23 15 24 25 21 32 42 38 Electro-Organic 19 8 11 11 15 13 11 13 14 18 Photochemistry </p><p>a n d Photog- raphy 44 10 34 19 41 22 25 25 19 24 </p><p>Inorganic 129 73 56 69 116 124 116 109 86 101 Analytical 102 53 49 79 95 96 75 54 44 71 Metallurgical 46 35 11 32 36 22 21 34 28 38 Organic 811 379 432 312 719 668 570 475 430 422 Physiological 233 113 120 193 222 146 134 207 196 172 Pharmacological 16 8 8 18 14 11 7 14 20 30 Pharmaceutical 34 13 21 25 27 16 14 21 39 20 Sanitary 16 10 6 13 27 30 25 11 12 9 Nutrition 78 41 37 65 80 52 58 51 76 48 Food 34 19 15 16 31 52 27 37 49 35 Agricultural 108 54 54 65 91 111 89 72 55 91 Industrial a n d </p><p>Engineering 63 40 23 40 91 156 183 274 184 203 Chemical Engi- </p><p>neering 301 185 116 96 285 . . . . . . . . . .
