I Bentz wrote us saying:
"Im currently conducting research on Sir Patrick Geddes for
a paper on maritime law. In particular, Im looking for any piece
of information on his time at Aberdeen University, especially any information
and documents regarding the zoological station in Cowie near Stonehaven
that Patrick Geddes set up. Apparently, there are a few pictures of
this station and other documents regarding the exact location. Unfortunately,
they are not in the library collection in Aberdeen. Id therefore
be very grateful if you could help me with any information or advise
me on where I could find the documents Im looking for?"
