TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Dr. [John] Horne, FRS
Date30 October 1917
DescriptionInforms Dr. [John] Horne that the Education Committee concerned with the teaching of science in schools is a Government Committee on Commission, of which the Society's President, Sir Joseph [John] Thomson, is Chairman. However, notes that Sir Thomson has not yet reported for this Committee, so it cannot have been reviewed in the newspapers. Suggests that perhaps Dr. Horne is thinking of the Conjoint Board of Scientific Societies who did report on the subject recently. Offers to provide Dr. Horne with a copy of that report.
