Referee's report by Walter Rosenhain, on a paper 'On the effect of the temperature of liquid hydrogen (-252.8° C.) On the tensile properties of forty-one specimens of metals comprising (a) pure iron 99.85%; (b) four carbon steels; (c) thirty alloy steels; (d) copper and nickel; (e) four non-ferrous alloy' by W J De Haas and Robert Abbott Hadfield
