Samuel Gershon’s reply to Thomas A. Ban

Samuel Gershon’s reply to Thomas A. Ban’s question about the development of the flame photometer

Of the two Wynn brothers, Alan and Victor, Victor did the work on the flame photometer for projects ongoing in the Florey research center on electrolyte and fluid balance in sheep. Remember, sheep were a huge industry in Australia and since Trautner and Wynn were both in the physiology department, they helped each other. Later, Victor Wynn went to Oxford and Alan Wynn stayed in Melbourne in the Physiology Department.
