Friday April 13, 1894
William Christie, Astronomer Royal
RH says..... A report of this RAS Council Meeting can be found online here. It's from The Observatory, a journal founded by Christie back in 1877. Christie does not seem to have taken an active part in this meeting and, in fact, the ROG's input seems to have been limited to the submission of a paper on 'Observations of Denning's Comet' and the election of 'F.W. Dyson, M.A., Fellow of Trin. Coll., Camb., Royal Observatory, Greenwich, S.E.'.
