TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date9 October 1905
DescriptionThe Society does not find that Professor [Augusto] Righi was proposed for the Rumford Medal in 1902, the year when the award was made to Mr Parsons. There is a printed statement over Sir A Rucker's name drawn up in 1898. Harrison encloses this in case it may be of service for Larmor's proposal of Righi for the Hughes Medal [not enclosed]. Reminds Larmor that he proposed Professor D I Mendeleev for the Copley Medal.
