A very well-attended meeting on 27th April, chaired by Roderick Evans, took the long-projected “History of the RISW” several stages further. Dr.Louise Miskell of Swansea University proposed to seek funding for a student to undertake research and write a doctoral thesis on the theme. Andrew Dulley of West Glamorgan Archive Service, gave advice on the effective collection of oral history.

Council member John Tucker explained the possibilities of the monographs of the Scientists of Wales series and suggested a conference on the topic. There was also discussion of a popular history of the RI.
