167R. George Leveson-Gower to Harrod, 2 July 1929 [a]

Leveson-Gower is willing to act as the proposer for Harrod's acceptance to the A.I. [The Athenæum], but warns that the next ballot will not be before three years. [1]

  1. 1. Another letter, from an unidentified correspondent, announces that the author entered his name in Harrod's support (25 July 1929, in HPBL Add. 71190/91). The ballot was held on 22 March 1933 (Harrod to Lindemann, 14 March 1933, in CHER K142/11). On 16 and 17 February 1933 Leveson-Gower explained to Harrod the procedures to be followed (in HPBL Add. 71185/95-96 and HPBL Add. 71185/97-98). When the ballot was approaching, Harrod asked Lindemann to "affirm the doubtful proposition that I am a fit and proper person to become a member" (Harrod to Lindemann, 14 March 1933, in CHER K142/11). Harrod was eventually elected (information from the Athenæum's librarian).
    1. a. From 10, Thurloe Place, S.W.7 # , ALS, six pages, in HPBL Add. 71185/92-94.
