During the summer of 1937 it was my pleasure and privilege to visit on many occasions the "Palace of Discovery" of the Paris Exposition. This vast, splendid and instructive exhibit of scientific principles and progress was essentially the idea of that "grand old man" of French science, Jean Perrin. The details were admirably worked out with the wholehearted cooperation of many of the most important French scientific workers who gave freely of their time and energy.
