TitleLetter from Professor John Stanley Gardiner, Zoological Department, Cambridge; to William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date22 January 1923
DescriptionFor representatives to go to the Pan Pacific Congress, suggests E. J. Allen of Plymouth, Petersen the Dane, or failing them, Borley for their knowledge of fisheries. Suggests strongly that William Bate Hardy himself ought to go, as he would be a good representative of the Royal Society and of English science. Also suggests T. Bainbrigge Fletcher, Head of the Entomological Station at Pusa, India - the largest organisation in the world aside from the USA that deals with tropical problems. Finally suggests Guy Marshall for his West African experience, and Rivers, Haddon or Elliot Smith for knowledge of 'native races'.
