     POLANYI IN MANCHESTER" (Revised version of a paper presented at the

     Taylor and Hugh S. Taylor were brothers who took Ph.D. degrees in physical
     chemistry at Liverpool. M. G. Evans went to Princeton in 1933 to work with
     Hugh S. Taylor."  This note was to a paragraph: "Manchester, like Berlin,
     was a site of regular visitors by foreigners in the early decades of the
     1900s.  During the forced Jewish exodus from central Europe during
     1933-1934, Hans Bethe and Rudolf Peierls were in Bragg's Manchester
     laboratory for a time before Bethe moved to Cornell University and Peierls
     went over to the Cavendish and then took a post in Birmingham.[27] As
     suggested above, there were close connections between Manchester and
     Princeton University through the Hungarians Wigner and von Neumann, as well
     as through Henry Eyring and the British-born and educated Hugh Taylor.[28]"

     Holzminden and Georges de Laire (1836-1908) in Paris, and carried out
     research on fragrances. He later elucidated the structure of the
