Royal Geographical Society Anniversary Meeting

    Article metrics


    THE anniversary meeting of the Royal Geographical Society held on Monday afternoon was, as we anticipated, exceptionally large and representative. The report of the council stated that the membership of the Society on the 1st of May was 3691 (including 22 ladies), a net increase of 166 fellows since May 1st, 1892, being the largest net addition to the membership of the Society since 1875. The total net income for the year was £93,000, and the expenditure £9012. In addition to the services performed to the fellows and the public by means of evening meetings, the use of the Map Room and Library and the publication of the Geographical Journal, twenty four intending travellers have received instruction in practical astronomy and route-surveying from Mr. Coles, and instruments have been lent to eleven travellers for use in all parts of the world.
