Content DescriptionThe memorandum, which is signed by H. H. La Thangue, puts forward suggested reforms to the summer exhibition, election of members, annual report and annual dinner, and the proposal that a general meeting of the whole body of members take place annually. The paper explains that the proposals followed a meeting of 26 Academicians and Associates held at the studio of John Singer Sargent on 8 June 1905, which had led to the formation of a committee of seven members, including Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Sir W. Goscombe John, Reginald Blomfield and Frank Dicksee. The committee, which met twice, decided to report to a general meeting of the entire body of members in the Autumn.
