In this lecture theatre on 14 August 1894 at the Oxford meeting of The British Association, Sir Oliver Lodge, F.R.S., demonstrated the reception of a morse code signal transmitted from the old Clarendon Laboratory, some sixty metres away.
Sharp Laboratories of Europe generously funded this plaque which was unveiled by Sir Michael Atiyah, O.M., President of The Royal Society.
