Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Sir Edward Albert Sharpey Schafer, 28 March 1915

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/21/7
Scope and Contents Schafer writes that they ought to come to a decision about the directorship as soon as possible, and that Ewart was to have written a proposed scheme. He emphasises that the Committee would push for a full time director and doubts if the University would relieve Ewart of his duties sufficiently to allow him to take over the directorship.
