Robert William Frederick Harrison

Appointed to the Assistant Secretaryship of the Society on 16 January 1896 and thus began his Twenty Four years of service with the Society.

The first thing Harrison did on his appointment was to ascertain the manner in which the business of the Society was conducted and the cost of administration. For this purpose he carefully examined the accounts for some years past and found the whole system inadequate to the status and dignity of the Society. He therefore set to work, with the approval of the Officers, and planned a fresh organization calculated to bring the work of the Society into line with modern requirements.
