6 June 2013: Summer Soirée

Salon 299 incorrectly stated that the Summer Soirée would take place on 26 June. The correct date is this Thursday, 6 June 2013.

Fellow Janet Owen, whose biography of Sir John Lubbock has just been published, will talk about the relationship between Lubbock, Darwin and other prominent scientists of their day and examine the parts they played in promoting new ideas in the intellectual ferment that resulted from the publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (1859) and Lubbock’s own Pre-historic Times (1872).

Michael Archer, former conservator in the British Museum’s Clocks and Watches Department, will talk about the Society’s clocks, including the Benjamin Gray and Justin Vulliamy Regulator located in the Society’s entrance hall.

Admission to the Pimms and wine reception that follows at 6pm is by ticket only (£10, from the Society’s Executive Assistant).
