Letter from Adams, Walter 1933-1936, 1934-04-29

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/6
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.

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...

Letter to Adams, Walter 1933-1936, 1936-05-08

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/19
Scope and Contents Thanks Adams for sending the paper in the ‘Universities Review’, which Rutherford does not believe is liable to cause them trouble. He cannot be at the meeting on Tuesday [May 12] to discuss the future organisation of ‘the new body’ [the Society for the Protection of Science and Learning]. Agrees that there should be a good Executive Committee of twelve to deal regularly with business and has no objection to Sub-Committees formed as the occasion arose with one or two in being for rapid...

Letter to 'Mr Eppstein', 1936-04-28

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.7653/1/i/A/18a
Scope and Contents Copy of a letter from [Rutherford] to ‘Mr Eppstein’ acknowledging receipt of his letter about the National Conference on Refugees to be held from May 20-22. Rutherford recognises the importance of these meetings but is in some difficulty in answering Eppstein [see Ms Add.7653/1/i/A/18] as he is President of the Academic Assistance Council, which is entirely non-political, and were he to preside over a meeting of a political character there would be repercussions for the AAC. He asks...
