23R. E. L. Woodward to Harrod, 12 May 1922 [a]
Woodward informs Harrod about the possibility of Hertford College electing a Tutor or Fellow, and explains (probably at Harrod's request) that the condition that the Fellow belongs to the Church of England would not commit him to a particular school of thought. 
(The episode is also reported in H. P. Brown, "Sir Roy Harrod: A Biographical Memoir", 1980, p. 7). Other considerations, however, seem to have played a part: see letter 24 R.
Woodward wrote again on 14 May, indicating who could supply Harrod with further information regarding the Hertford Fellowship (in HPBL Add 71616/10), and on 17 May, expressing his understanding of Harrod's position and the hope that other opportunities for Harrod would occur (in HPBL Add 71616/13). Cruttwell, the Dean of Hertford, also wrote on 17 May to a similar effect (in HPBL Add 71616/15).
