TitleCopy letter from Henry Hallet Dale, Secretary of the Royal Society; Sir John Rose Bradford, K.C.M.G FRS
Date11 June 1926
DescriptionInforms of the situation of the tercentenary of the birth of physiology as represented by 'De Motu Cordis' by Harvey, which will take place in 1928. States that although Prof. [Ernest Henry] Starling brought it to attention, the Royal Society should leave it to the Royal College of Surgeons to have a leading part in the celebrations, as Harvey was associated with them. However, states that many Fellows would be interested in the celebrations and asks how the Royal Society can make the occasion representative and internationally impressive. John Rose Bradford's proposals will be laid before the Council.
