Date28 January 1911
DescriptionHarrison apologises for the delay, but he was not able to get hold of a spare copy of the Report of the Proceedings at the Second General Assembly of the International Association of Academies, he is sending it now [no enclosures]. The Royal Society has at its disposition various medals and other awards for scientific distinction which are not restricted to British subjects. The Society has taken a very active part in inaugurating more than one undertaking of an International character: the International Association of Academies itself owes its foundation largely to the Royal Society. The International Catalogue of Scientific Literature was also initiated by the Royal Society.
