I would at the outset like to record my appreciation of the high honour I have enjoyed in being your President during the last year. It is an honour which I especially feel, for I regard myself far more as a Zoologist, who sometimes finds insects to be interesting arthropods, rather than as a true Entomologist. I lack that entomological single-mindedness which sees the rest of the animal kingdom, and the plant kingdom also, as little other than a stage upon which insects may express the ingenuities of their adaptiveness. Maybe as a zoologist I also lack that psychological tension which at times I recognise among my entomological friends.
