 Item
Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/11
Scope and Contents Writing from the Academic Assistance Council at Clements Inn Passage, Adams says he has met Mathilde Hertz, has received a long letter from the Master of Trinity [Joseph John Thomson] and has discussed her case with Professors [Archibald Vivian] Hill and [Charles Stanley] Gibson.

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/5
Scope and Contents Writing from the Academic Assistance Council in the Royal Society, Adams sends an agenda for a meeting and writes about the speakers. Austen Chamberlain wants there to be no implication of hostility towards Germany in the speeches and preferably no reference to Germany; Rutherford has also wished to keep the meeting apolitical. The four societies combining in the appeal do not intend the assistance to be solely for refugees from one country as is the case with other societies. No dinner...

Scope and Contents Writing from the Academic Assistance Council in the Royal Society, Adams says that on Thursday of the next week 'The Times' will publish a 1,400 word article about the AAC written by Rutherford but need this by early Tuesday as they may wish to prepare a leader.

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/9
Scope and Contents In reply to the previous letter [Mark Oliphant] writes to Walter Adams that Oskar Heil is not a Jew and it is not for thar reason he wishes to spend a year in the Cavendish. Heil is of independent means and has been accepted by the Laboratory. Frau [Agnesa Arsenjewa] Heil is Russian and that is the reason for the difficulty with the Home Office. She has applied for a visa and has been refused and [Oliphant] was asked to write to explain the situation to the Home Office. Asks that Adams...

Letter to Adams, Walter 1933-1936, 1934-04-30

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/7
Scope and Contents Rutherford encloses an amended report (in response to the previous letter), which he has signed. Adams's report excellent andt explains the alterations he has made. One part he has deleted and substituted with a general phrase due to the undesirability of special reference to institutions or the nature of the work; Rutherford wants to base the appeal on broad grounds of academic liberty. Regretfully he feels that the history of the Hugenot refugees is an unhappy parallel. Other changes...

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/8
Scope and Contents Writing from the Academic Assistance Council now at 12 Clements Inn Passage, Clare Market, London WC2, Adams tells Oliphant that the Home Office has asked whether the AAC can support Oliphant's application to employ Oscar Heil at the Cavendish Laboratory for the 1935-1936 academic year. Adams is unable to reply as he has no information about Heil's career; he requests details and asks if Heil 'is on of the displaced German scholars'? The AAC may be able to facilitate Heil's entry to...
