Biography

Mentioned on P 40 of The Man Who Invented Vegemite — a biography of Cyril Callister, who worked at Gretna: ‘Cyril wrote to his father that not all of his colleagues had earned the respect they believed they were owed: we have an insect from Nottingham named Williams. He who has been an infant prodigy, I think, is unlikely to recover from the excessive swell of the head in consequence. He has the nerve to have his letters addressed Mr Gill Williams B Sc 1st Class Honours London. We are thinking of buying some insectibane for it.
