TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir William Crookes, Foreign Secretary of the Royal Society
Date26 June 1912
DescriptionAmong the delegates to next month's 250th Anniversary Celebrations, there are two distinguished scientific men for whom so far no private hosts have been found, and since Crookes has expressed his willingness to give the shelter of his roof to one or more delegates, the President has directed me to suggest the names of Professor Lippmann and of Professor P Zeeman, who will be accompanied by his wife.
