TitleCopy letter from Arthur Schuster, Secretary of the Royal Society to Mr Anderson
Date19 March 1915
DescriptionSchuster writes that the Council of the Royal Society concur in the views expressed in Anderson's previous letter subject to two modifications. The first is that the personal services of members of the Institutions at which research work is being carried out, ought to be given gratuitously. Secondly the Council also suggest that the firms should defray all out of pocket expenses connected to the research, if called upon to.
Schuster also suggests that no patent should be applied for without the sanction of the Royal Society, and that if firms required further personal assistance then payment should be made.
