TitleCopy letter from David Christie Martin to Robert Robinson, The Royal Society
Date23 June 1947
DescriptionSpoken to Kodak, who agreed to provide plates. Will send out invitations to Reception as Robinson requested. Discusses Edward Salisbury's suggestions, on behalf of Cockcroft and Harington, that a nuclear physics conference be held next year. Suggestion arose from two visiting Americans, Hamilton and Evans. [Archibald Vivian] Hill and Salisbury think it a good idea, and it would have support from America. Travel expenses might be obtained from the Nuffield Foundation, as the conference would have medical aspects.
