|Title||Referee's report by Karl Pearson, on a paper 'On certain independent factors in mental measurements' by J C Maxwell Garnett|
|Date||25 September 1918|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Mathematics|
No clear statement regarding publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Considers the paper as 'not strong' and controversial. Suggests Thompson [?] should be allowed to voice his opinion. Refers to work by Spearman [?]. The paper is a reply to others by Thompson and Spearman published in the British Journal of Phychology, and is not sure the conversation should be transferred to the Philosophical Transactions.
[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London' A, 1919]
