TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Editor of "Who's Who"
Date16 February 1909
DescriptionHarrison draws attention to an entry in the publication "Who's Who", under the name of Sir Clements Markham, to the effect that he has been President of the Royal Society Club. Harrison finds that Sir Clements Markham has never held officer in the Club and has no doubt it is due to a printers mistake. Harrison is move to make this correction due to the inconvenience that has not infrequently been caused to the Royal Society and the Royal Society Club by the establishment of a club in St James Street which has assumed the name of the Royal Societies Club.
