I am completing work on a database of RPS members from 1853-1900 and I recent put out a call for missing membership lists. This produced three more lists previously unknown to me. I would like to make a final appeal for membership lists for the following years: 1855, 1856, 1858, 1860-1865, 1876, 1877, 1894 and 1898.
If you have these – perhaps bound in with the respective volume of the Photographic Journal – I would be pleased to discuss how I might get a copy so that I can incorporate the names/addresses, etc., into the database.
Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Already research for this project has brought out new names of members who do not appear in the published membership lists and has revised the election dates of others. The completed database will be searchable and will be made freely available in the summer. Depending on the response then it may be extended to 1920.
Regards and thanks.
