Whale myoglobin. This is no. 15 of the projects listed in MS. Eng. e. 2347. Whale myoglobin became eventually the material of choice for the main programme after further narrowing down of various types of whale (blue whale, finback etc. analysed elsewhere in the notebooks and notes) to the sperm whale. The notebook has its own index running 15-1 to 15-59. Work in this book covers 15-1 to 15-29 only, the continuation having been transferred to a separate notebook (MS. Eng. e. 2351).

Experiments on specimens prepared by J. Keilin (then working in Molteno Institute Cambridge), crystallisation, diffraction pictures etc., December 1946 - October 1952, with an occasional later note 1953, 1954.

At the rear of the book are notes on preparations and methods.
