TitleLetter from Gilbert [Charles] Bourne; Twyning Manor, near Tewkesbury; to William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date25 April 1925
DescriptionAccepts the Royal Society's invitation to act as the Chairman of the proposed Committee [researching and presenting a report on the question of publishing scientific results]. Wants to have all correspondence and other available information on the matter given to the Committee before its first meeting. Thinks that many Fellows of the Royal Society will actively oppose any suggestion that the Royal Society takes responsibility for a popular science service or keeping isolated scientific workers in touch with scientific developments, but doubts that they are right. Discusses how the Committee's recommendations could be received.
