Lillie was President of the Academy from July 1, 1935, to June 30, 1939. 3With the resignation of William Rubey in 1954, Detlev Bronk, President of the Acad- emy, assumed the duties of the Chairman of the National Research Council. This action was later affirmed by the Academy Council when it voted in June 1959 to designate Dr. Bronk Chairman of NRC. At a meeting of the Council in October 1962, it was stated that the intention at that time was to establish the general principle that the President of the Academy should serve as Chairman of the National Research Council ("Minutes of the Council," October 9-10, 1954; June 14, 1959; October 6-7, 1962).
