Hot Springs diary, 1943


This is the diary kept by Lionel Robbins during his time in America in 1943. This includes time in Washington prior to the Hot Springs conference, the Hot Springs conference itself, and time in Washington after the conference. The diary was intended as a report for War Cabinet and other colleagues back in Britain. The folder includes a circular from Robbins marked 'most secret' and sent to Sir Edward Bridges, Sir Wilfred Sady, Mr N Brock, Mr Gorell Barnes, and the Economic Section explaining the purpose of the diaries. There is also a letter from L S Pressnell to Robbins thanking him for the loan of his journal (meaning the three diaries) and saying how interesting he has found them, 21/12/1977.
