TitleLetter from William Abbott Herdman, the Royal Society, Burlington House, London, to Robert Harrison
Date20 June 1901
DescriptionHe asks if Harrison has received an opinion from the Officers as to whether the Gunning Fund process may be done by Chairmen's correspondence, or whether a joint committee meeting would be necessary. He would find it difficult to attend a meeting before 4 July, due to examinations and holidays. He asks if Harrison has had any award suggestions from the Zoology Committee. He encloses a draft circular letter to be sent out to reach a consensus on the award. In a postscript, he enquires if the whole fund must go to one man, or whether it can be divided.
