TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Francis Fox
Date8 July 1908
DescriptionIs obliged by his letter of yesterday on the inadequate ventilation of the meeting room. It has been the subject of comment for a considerable time. Harrison raised the matter at Council when Benjamin Baker was a member, and he was doubtful of any experiments to better the situation. A Fellow with great experience drew up a report, but no further action was taken. One consideration is that they cannot move an inch in the matter of any structural alteration without the consent of H M Office of Works.
