South-Eastern Union of Scientific Societies : Annual Congress, 1948

    Article metrics


    AT the invitation of the Mayor and the Corporation of Great Yarmouth, and with the co-operation of the Great Yarmouth Naturalists' Society, the South-Eastern Union of Scientific Societies held its fifty-third annual congress during June 14-19 at Great Yarmouth, under the presidency of Mrs. Jacquetta Hawkes. The Mayor, in his welcome to the Congress at the Town Hall, where accommodation was provided for meetings by the Corporation, said that those who were not versed in ‘old buildings' could not appreciate the beauty of them, and that societies such as he was addressing opened the eyes to the reasons why such old buildings as those on the South Quay at Yarmouth should be preserved. Capt. Dannreuther inducted the president, and congratulated her upon being the first lady to hold the office since the foundation of the Union more than fifty years ago.
