103R. F. J. Warburg to Harrod, 15 February 1926 [a]

On Harrod's suggestion, Routledge will pay special attention to Robert Byron's book. [1]

  1. 1. R. Byron, Europe in the Looking-Glass; Reflections of a Motor Drive from Grinsby to Athens, London: Routledge, 1926. Byron thanked Harrod for the troubles he had taken--which included a visit to Gilbert Murray--on 23 July 1926 (in HPBL Add. 71182/90-91). In 1928, Harrod wrote to Woodruff, who worked at The Times, to bear in mind "that Robert Byron [wanted] a job urgently". "He is a man of great literary capacity taste and knowledge. He knows about painting, would do dramatic criticism very well etc. [...] I am convinced that he would do any reasonable job well. [...] A man of twenty times the brains of Eric Siepmann" (6 February 1928, in DWP Box 3 Folder 23).
