179R. Harrod to E. E. Day, 9 October 1930 [a]
Harrod asks if the Rockefeller Foundation could obtain for him facilities for exploring the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Council for the Social Sciences: this would be relevant to the Bodleian Library Commission's visit to the United States as, in Harrod's view, their "library problem is bound up with the question of providing more extended plant for social & economic work than at present exists." Harrod asks if there is some institution in New York he could show to his colleagues in the Bodleian Commission in order to "demonstrate the way in which a library staff can co-operate with field workers". 
Day replied on 14 October that he would assist Harrod in providing opportunities to visit important research organizations in the social sciences in the New York area (in RF 1.1, Series 401R, Box 61, Folder 805).
