Scope and content

This file consists of a scrapbook, mostly newspaper clippings concerning the 1886 meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science held in September in Birmingam, and the address that J.W. Dawson gave there. Other topics covered by the scrapbook include the honorary degree received by Dawson from Columbia University in April 1887, and Dawson’s comments on the earthquakes that occurred in southern Europe in February and March 1887. In addition to newspaper clippings, the scrapbook also contains correspondence, illustrations cut from magazines, tickets, invitations to meet the Prince of Wales, Mayor of London, and the Queen, a map, and a group photo of the Dawson family.
