This Committee was established [ca. July 1914] as a result of the efforts of the British Academy towards celebrating the Shakespeare Tercentenary. This Committee was not technically part of the Shakespeare Memorial National Theatre movement, however many of the names involved in the Shakespeare Tercentenary were also involved with the SMNT project. Chairman of the Committee was Lord Plymouth, Gollancz was Honorary Secretary; other members on this committee were Sir George Alexander, Henry Irving, Mrs Lyttelton, Vaughan Williams and James Yoxall.
