Convention 1961

Saturday 8th April - LONDON

The AGM took place at Caxton Hall at 2.30 p.m. under rather sombre circumstances as Our President Emeritus Mr. C. Glidden Osborne had passed away on January 15.

The accounts showed that in the year 1960 subscriptions had fallen to £206 7/- from 1959s £213 5/-. The sale of reference books was also down by £2 to £50 5/-, but we had brought in just over £6 by sales of back issues of our magazine and also in advertising and an extra £16 was made via the auctions.

A fairly large increase in general expenses was due to postage on the new 140 page Reference Book No.24 (“Guinea Gold”), stationery, the binding of back issues for the library so they might be better protected, and also on a presentation to Mr Glidden Osborne to mark his retirement.
