Excerpt from A Book of Homage to Shakespeare: 1916

At a noteworthy meeting held in July 1914 of delegates nominated by many institutions, universities, societies, and other bodies, to consider the question of the observance of the Shakespeare Tercentenary, Lord Bryce as President of the British Academy presiding, it was unanimously resolved, on the motion of the American Ambassador, His Excellency W. H. Page, That the Tercentenary of the death of Shakespeare should be commemorated in a manner worthy of the veneration in which the memory of Shakespeare is held by the English-speaking peoples and by the world at large The delegates, representing the British Empire, the United States, and foreign countries, were constituted as a General Committee, and an Executive Committee was appointed, with Lord Plymouth as Chairman, and myself as Honorary Secretary.
