THE APPOINTMENT of overseas representatives came about as a result of the increasing
interest shown in the Institution and the rapidly growing number of applications for membership from various parts of the world. Local representatives were first appointed in India in 1932 ; other appointments followed as the need arose and within twenty-five years the Institution had representatives in Australia, British West Indies, Canada, Ceylon, East Africa, Hong Kong, India, Israel, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Rhodesia and Nyasaland and Singapore.
