Date20 March 1907
DescriptionThe Royal Society has been considering the proposal that the Royal Irish Academy should form one of the Academies in the International Association of Academies. The proposal appeared to the Council to be part of a larger question regarding better representation of the various parts of the British Empire. It was agreed that steps should be taken to procure information for the consideration of the question. The claim of the Royal Irish Academy will be carefully gone into.
