William Loughrey was first proposed by HUGH BYRNE  HUGH BYRNE as a student of the RIAI at a council meeting of the Institute on 10 March 1865. The proposal was seconded by PATRICK JAMES BYRNE  PATRICK JAMES BYRNE and EDWARD P. GRIBBON EDWARD P. GRIBBON . The council decided that the question should be postponed until JAMES RAWSON CARROLL  JAMES RAWSON CARROLL was asked for his opinion of Loughrey, which suggests that Loughrey may have been Carroll's pupil. Carroll's response must have been positive, for Loughrey was duly elected a student on 23 November 1865. Handwritten corrections, apparently dating from the end of 1867, to a copy of the membership list for 1866-67 in the RIAI archives include the deletion of Loughrey's name with the note, 'Left. No address'.
