TitleLetter from Sydney John Hickson, The University, Manchester, to Sir Archibald Geikie
Date10 June 1908
DescriptionHickson wishes to bring to Council's attention the present state of affairs regarding the Directorate of the Natural History Museum. He is in correspondence with principal zoologists but has not yet been able to decide on the best form of a resolution. He will have this ready for the next Council meeting and asks that it be added to the agenda paper. The matter is important, and if pressure cannot be brought to bear on the Trustees, a step will be taken which will influence the future of biological sciences badly.
