    Responds to the British Medical Journal announcement that John S Burdon-Sanderson has been appointed as Brown Professor, the senior position at Brown Institute for the Study of Animal Diseases, University of London. Notes that Burdon-Sanderson must be the first 'brown' professor and compares this situation with America, where the large black population and 'free institutions' have led to 'many Brown Professors'. Anticipates that in the future, when the 'rights of women shall have been recognised', there will be women and therefore 'Brunette' university professors.
