TitleCopy letter from Edwin Deller, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Sir Henry [Alexander] Miers, FRS; Birch Hays, Manchester
Date25 September 1920
DescriptionRefers to Professor Vernadski, the Russian Minerologist who is stranded in the Crimea and anxious to return to England to pursue his studies. Suggests that there is very little the Society can do and an application to the Scientific Relief Fund is the only possible route through which Professor Vernadski may be granted aid, though it is intended primarily to provide relief to English scientists.
