In his will Cunningham left 'one-twelfth part (of my residuary estate) for preparing new Mathematical Tables in the Theory of Numbers'. The sum involved was approximately £3,000.

The minutes and annual reports from 1930 onwards also refer to the bequest. Correspondents include:

  1. William Edward Hodgson Berwick (1888-1944)
