TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [William Abbott] Herdman, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 June 1901
DescriptionEncloses the only suggestions so far received from members of the Zoology Committee for applications of the Gunning Fund [no enclosures]. Explains it doesn't work well to have them sent to the Chairmen of all the Sectional Committees. Regarding the joint consideration of the Fund, Harrison thinks that it would be quite possible to agree upon a recommendation by correspondence between the Chairmen, although he does not know the views of Council upon settling the matter at a joint meeting.
