TitleCopy letter from James Hopwood Jeans, Secretary of the Royal Society; to Prof. [Sydney] Chapman, FRS
Date10 April 1924
DescriptionAsks for a suggestion of a referee for the paper 'On the drift of spinning projectiles' by J. W. Campbell, which has been communicated by John Stanley Plaskett, suggests [Ralph Howard] Fowler although he is not a Fellow. James Hopwood Jeans states he has not had time to read through the paper carefully but mentions that it seems to be a simplification of results obtained by [Ralph Howard] Fowler, E. G. Gallop, C. N. H. Lock, and [Herbert William] Richmond [The aerodynamics of a spinning shell, 1920]. Suggests referring the paper to the Mathematical Committee.
