655R. Margaret Pyke to Harrod, 10 April 1937 [a]

Replies to a letter not found. [1] Pyke, the secretary to the National Birth Control Association, agrees with Harrod that support of population must pass through support of the welfare of the mother and the children, but does not agree that the problem has to be seen in terms of the extinction of the human race. She also agrees with Harrod that co-operation between those who advocate birth-control and those who want a larger birth-rate is indispensable.

  1. 1. Harrod's letter probably concerned a letter by Pyke on "Birth-Rate Decline" to the editor of the Daily Telegraph, 3 April 1937, p. 11.
    1. a. From the National Birth Control Association, London # , two pages TLS, in HP IV-C/A/16.
