457R. Harrod to D. Veale, 16 July 1935 [a]
Harrod will not be able to take part in the 29 July meeting of the Social Studies Research Committee;  he submits, however, that the Committee should send someone to America to the Conference on Social Studies to report back, as this is probably what the Rockefeller Foundation expects.  He adds that "the matter was discussed at a group of most of the economists in Oxford who have considered [b] somewhat intensively how this money should be utilized, during the course of the last year, and they were of the opinion that this would be in our interest". 
2. The Committee accepted Harrod's suggestion, and invited Mr. Fulton to attend the conference and report back (minutes of the meeting in Social Studies Research Committee, OUA UR6/MS/3 File 1 part 1). (John Scott--later Lord--Fulton, 1902-86, fellow of Balliol College, previously tutor in philosophy and at the time tutor in politics, was granted a Rockefeller fellowship in 1936-37).
3. Refers to the group preparing the research of the Oxford Economists' Research Group; the financial source under consideration was a Rockefeller Foundation Grant of which the Social Studies Research Committee was benefiting.
