Like many venerable art societies, the RMS was proud of its historical archives; however, during World War II their London headquarters were bombed resulting in the loss of these records.

For some years the organisation has been trying to gather together a complete run of the Society's annual exhibition catalogues but we still need the following years: 1914-1920, 1922-1924, 1927, 1940-1943, 1945, 1948 and 1950.

The Society would be delighted to hear from anybody who has copies of these missing catalogues - even photocopies would be adequate for archive purposes.

If anybody can help please contact the RMS Archivist, Anthony Lester -
