TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Arthur Robertson Cushny, Fellow of the Royal Society, Chairman of the Physiology Sectional Committee
Date8 October 1912
DescriptionThe paper, 'Physiological observations made on Pike's Peak, Colorado' by C G Douglas, [John Scott] Haldane, Professor Y Henderson and Professor E C Schneider, was referred to [Leonard Erskine] Hill and [Joseph] Barcroft, both of whose reports are favourable to publication. The Biological Secretary suggests that the paper might go forward for printing in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' without waiting for a meeting of the sectional committee, if Cushny agrees.
