TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society
Date16 January 1906
DescriptionProfessor Arthur Schuster has sent a resolution passed at a meeting of the International Union for Cooperation in Solar Research, which he asks that the Council of the Royal Society forward to the International Association of Academies, and is quoted in this letter. The resolution suggests that the International Association of Academies agree to be listed first amongst the bodies constituting the International Solar Union, and that they nominate one of three members of the Executive Committee.

Harrison proposes that the matter be added to the Council agenda for Thursday.
