Title'Gaitskell Group' - Notes and Correspondence, 1956
DescriptionIncludes minutes of a meeting at the Reform Club, 17 July 1956: 6pp. typescript.

Folder also includes 3pp. typescript titled 'The Labour Party and Science' (notes to begin discussion on 17 July - presumably written by Brumwell) and 2pp. typescript appendix on the 'social sciences'.

Note: This 1956 meeting seemed to be the first one although Lovell ('P.M.S. Blackett: A Biographical Memoir': 1976, p76) states that they began in 1950. the notes sent to Gaitskell in November 1962 (E.33) states specifically 'We have been meeting as a group since July 1956'.
