TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Sir R [Ronald] Ross KCB, FRS
Date24 July 1911
Description'I appreciate your scruples about writing an obituary notice of Sir Rubert Boyce, but can you suggest someone else to do it? Would Professor Sherrington be a good person to apply to? Dr J W W Stephens wrote a notice for, I think, "Nature", but he is not a Fellow; and as a rule we like to have our obituary notices written by Fellows of the Society.'
