Identity:

George Henry Morland was a member of Burlington Fine Arts Club.

Life:

Morland was a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Club in 1867 and attended the meeting held on 13 December 1867 when it was proposed by William Mitchell that JW was 'not a proper person to remain a member of the Burlington Fine Arts Club, and that the Honorary Secretary be authorized to strike the name of Mr Whistler from the roll of members of this club - and the Treasurer, to refuse to receive any further subscription from him', a proposal seconded by Bernard Woodward (#12958). This was as a result of a quarrel with JW's brother-in-law Francis Seymour Haden concerning Haden's treatment of his medical partner James Traer, resulting in JW knocking Haden through a plate-glass window.
