Sir Charles Parsons Memorial


    ACTING in conjunction with various engineering institutions, the Royal Society has made arrangements for honouring the memory of Sir Charles Parsons, whose name is best known in connexion with his invention of the compound steam turbine. These include a memorial in Westminster Abbey, a memorial library in London House, and an annual lecture which, each fourth year, will be delivered on the north-east coast—the scene of Parsons' major activities—and in the intervening years is to be given in London.
