TitleLetter from Gilbert [Charles] Bourne; to William Bate Hardy, Secretary of the Royal Society
Date26 May 1925
DescriptionExplains that he is drawing up a report [on the question of publishing scientific results]. Thinks that the Royal Society could not associate itself with a Scientific Publicity Service, although he thinks such a service would be very useful. Discusses the subject of an Imperial Scientific Intelligence Service, which is on a slightly different footing. Thinks that Sir [Thomas] Heath better read Bourne's report before he makes any arrangements to interview Bourne on the subject.
