342R. Harrod to A. T. P. Williams, 12 January 1934 [a]

Harrod asks the Dean of Christ Church for a reduction of teaching hours to 5 during Michaelmas term: "I am at present engaged in preparing a study of the Trade Cycle and would use the extra time made available for this purpose". [1]

  1. 1. Harrod's study was to become The Trade Cycle, the first two chapters of which were written at the end of 1935 (the first extant evidence being Meade's comment on the first draft in January 1936--letters 510 and following--, while the trade cycle mechanism was first expounded in "The Choice of a Currency Policy", here as essay 16 , [jump to page] - [jump to page] .

    Harrod was eventually granted a reduction of teaching hours in excess of what he asked for, although there were some bureaucratic problems which forced him to make another application under a different paragraph of the Statute (Harrod to A. T. P. Williams, 7 and 14 February 1934, in HPBL Add. 72764/2-4).

    1. a. From Christ Church#, ALS (copy to be typed), two pages, in HPBL Add. 72764/1.
