TitleReferee's report by George Walker Walker, on a paper 'The support and origin of the mountains of central Asia' by Richard Dixon Oldham
Date[May 1917]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Geology

Recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. The seismological discussions should not be published. Refers to work of Charles Robert Darwin, Love [Augustus Edward Hough Love?], Herbert [?] and Sidney Gerald Burrard, to whose work the author should refer. Considers there to be no logical connection between the gravity data and the conclusions, and 'the seismological argument is false'. Suggests the seismological portion be removed from the paper entirely.
