TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to [Charles Vernon] Boys Esquire, FRS
Date10 November 1921
DescriptionAgrees that Mr. [Charles Vernon] Boys should approach [Charles] Chree or [Herbert Hall?] Turner for further information on [George Walker] Walker, noting that Turner in particular knew the general trend of his work very well. Asks that he append whatever information he gets from them to the obituary of Walker that he wrote for 'Nature', and alter its wording slightly in order that the two do not appear identical.
