696R. Harrod to Wilhelmine Cresswell, 9 September 1937 [a]

"I am really quite enjoying this. I think my contributions to the discussion have been quite effective. The committee now consists of 4 Englishmen, 1 Austrian domiciled in U.S., 1 American of Polish Origin and 1 Dutchman. (I believe a Belgian turns up to-day) [1] Our discussions are highbrow in the extreme. The blackboard soon gets covered with mysterious symbols." "We work 10-1 and 3.30-5.30--not excessive really. And then there are lunches and dinners for further discussion."

  1. 1. The fourth Englishman is not listed in the extant documents; it was perhaps A. Loveday. The American was Leo Pasvolsky, of the Brooking Institute in Washington, the Belgian was L. Dupriez of Louvain. The other participants are listed in note 2 to letter 694 .
