System of arrangement

Owing to the disparate nature of the material in this section, no overall subject classification could be established. Consequently, these papers have been divided largely by their physical format, the exceptions being the clearly identifiable items relating to University College Dundee where Patrick Geddes was Professor of Biology, 1889-1919.
