TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society, to Vernon Kellogg, Secretary of the National Research Council, 1701 Massachusetts Avenue, Washington DC
Date16 June 1922
DescriptionInforms Vernon Kellogg that it would be difficult for the Royal Society to cooperate directly, considering their distance from the Pacific Ocean, with the American Committee. Instead, suggests the American Committee communicates directly with one or more Fellows of the Royal Society who are in the Pacific region: Professor [Wilfred Eade] Agar, Sir [Tannatt William] Edgeworth David, and Sir [Walter] Baldwin Spencer in Australia, and Professor [William Blaxland] Benham in New Zealand.
