Date25 June 1901
DescriptionThanks him for his note with the names of the proposed medallists. Harrison informs him he has no note of a motion on the subject of the British Academy moved by Armstrong and the Astronomer Royal at the last Council meeting. Sir Michael Foster also does not remember a motion, but has a note recording that it was agreed that the consideration of the desirability of a British Academy would be resumed at the next Council meeting.

Harrison has noted a motion moved by Armstrong and seconded by Sherrington, and ultimately withdrawn, on the subject of the Antarctic Expedition.
