TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Blain Jerome Haak, 204 Massachusetts Building, Kansas City, USA
Date13 August 1912
DescriptionThey will find notice of Theodore Haak's life in the Dictionary of National Biography. The cutting enclosed is not all accurate. Haak was a founder of the Royal Society, and an important one, as he is reputed to have been the person that first suggested the meetings, but it is probably saying too much to state that he originated the Society.
