An Institute of Measurement Science will be established at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., with the support of the National Bureau of Standards and the Martin Company of Baltimore, Md. The Institute's first classes will be held beginning in February as part of the University's regular curriculum. Several courses leading to the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees will be offered, including instruction in meteorology, in statistics as applied to measurement, and in electronic, thermal, and optical measurement. The Martin Company provided $10 000 toward the establishment of the Institute. Courses will be held at the University and also at NBS, where they will include work in the Bureau's laboratories.
