* *Dame Harriette Chick, D.B.E., D.Sc., who celebrated her one-hundredth birthday on 6 January 1975, was awarded the 1974 Prize Lecture of the British Nutrition Foundation for distinguished research in nutrition. Dame Harriette, a member of the scientific staff of the Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine from 1905 to 1970, was one of the first to study vitamins. In 1919 she led a small team sent by the Accessory Food Factors Committee of the Medical Research Council to Vienna to investigate whether the diseases affecting the population in that city were the result of vitamin deficiencies in the diet. Dame Harriette chose the classical work of that team on rickets in children and on vitamin D as the subject of her Prize Lecture.
