Kidston's collection of microscope slides, numbering over 3,000, of which some hundreds have been figured, was bequeathed to the Botanical Department of the University of Glasgow. Owing to the terms of the bequest, the slides are not normally allowed outside the Department, though, under special conditions and by special arrangement, they can be sent for inspection to the British Museum (Natural History), Cromwell Road, South Kensington, London, S.W.7. A catalogue of these slides has been prepared by Dr. M. Calder and is to be published shortly. Kidston's library of palaeobotanical literature, almost complete to the time of his death, was also bequeathed to the Botanical Department of the University of Glasgow.
