586R. Naomi Mitchison to Harrod, 30 September 1936 [a]

Mitchison will treasure the photograph of Harrod with which the Editor of the Evening Standard has illustrated Harrod's article on population. [1]

  1. 1. Harrod, "We Must Have Larger Families" ( 1936:10 ), here as press item 11 (the article was illustrated with three photographs--without caption--representing babies). Mitchison was involved with the birth-control clinics movement, which she meant however as a step towards the emancipation of women rather than as a form of population control (J. Benton, Naomi Mitchison. A Biography, Glasgow: HarperCollins, 1990, pp. 40-41).

    Harrod's article also stimulated ironic comments from Roger <Chervode> (letter to Harrod, 29 September 1936, HPBL Add. 71191/202-3).

    1. a. From River Court, Hammersmith Mall, W.6. # , APcS, addressed to Christ Church but forwarded to Campden Hill Square, in HPBL Add. 71191/204.
