14R. J. B. Herbert to Harrod, [22
Harrod to draw up a programme for the Liberal Party for a pamphlet
for the Oxford University Liberal Club.
- 1. Harrod wrote
a programme titled "Liberalism at Oxford", which could have served
as a basis for a pamphlet as required by Basil Herbert (AD, two
pages, in HPBL Add. 72734/62-63). The document describes the OU
Liberal Club and its origin, and lists the main officials (Asquith
as the president, John Simon as hon. secretary, and Gilbert Murray
as chairman). It specifies that the club has adopted the
Manchester Programme which came before the conference of the
Reform Club (on the Manchester Programme see for instance M.
Freeden, Liberalism Divided. A Study in British Political Thought
1914-1939, Oxford: Clarendon, 1986, pp. 80-81). Other aspects of
the liberal position are illustrated by means of long citations
from Murray's manifesto "The Oxford University Liberal Club",
which appeared in the Oxford Outlook 1:2, June 1919, pp. 61-63.
