THE NEW ASSISTANT CURATOR AT RAVENSKNOWLE MEASURES THE RAINFALL

Mr. E. W. Aubrook, who has succeeded Miss Ellen Gallwey as Assistant Curator and Meteorological Recorder at Ravensknowle Museum, measures the week-end’s rainfall, which amounted to approximately half an inch. Mr. Aubrook is a native of Oldham, and has had previous experience as assistant curator at the Museum and Art Galleries at Paisley, as assistant in the department of entomology at the University Museum, Oxford, and as assistant in the department of agricultural entomology at Manchester University. His speciality is beetles, and he has already had a beetle named after him. It is called the Micrambe-aubrooki and is a new species which he discovered at a chrysanthemum show at Manchester Town Hall in 1934. Mr. Aubrook has compiled a list of beetles of Oxfordshire for the Victoria County History of Oxfordshire and has also written various notes and papers on entomology.
