Date17 February 1908
DescriptionPaper by Sir Victor Horsley entitled 'A description of the brain of Mr. Charles Babbage, F.R.S'. Professor Schafer, who was nominated to referee this paper, cannot undertake to report. He suggests that it should be referred to an anatomist e.g Professor Cunningham, Professor Symington, or Professor Gustav Retzius who is a foreign member of the Royal Society. Will the Chairman please minute his opinion on to whom the paper should be referred. Sir Archibald Geikie has been informed of this.
