3R. H. E. C. Gatliff to Harrod, [October 1919] [a]

Gatliff communicates that he and others are going to revive the Jowett Society which lapsed during the war, and asks whether Harrod would join. He gives details regarding the first two meetings, to take place in November. [1]

  1. 1. The Jowett was an undergraduate society, whose aim was to stimulate interest in philosophy among undergraduates by means of written papers. A copy of the list of meetings for November 1919 is in HPBL Add. 72768/60. A correction in pen indicates that the second meeting was to take place in Harrod's rooms. Harrod was secretary of the Society in Michaelmas term 1921, and was elected president at the 211th meeting held on 30 November 1921 for Hilary term 1922 (Minutes, JS, Ms. Top. Oxon. d. 359/1).
