196R. A. H. Smith to Harrod, 10 January 1931 [a]
Replies to a letter not found. Smith discusses Harrod's proposed alterations to the minority report on the Bodleian Library development:  he suggests that, when recasting the argument, it would be expedient to: bring out Harrod's main points--shelf access, carrels, research rooms, and so on--; point out that these are incompatible with a building of the size contemplated by the majority; and leave up to the University the decision whether to build a larger building in Broad Street or an altogether new library elsewhere. Smith also suggests to produce an alternative plan for Broad Street.
