[Transcript of 222/ [original almost unreadable]:

June 19 1971. Dear Daryll, sorry to have let a few days slip by without writing to you as promised. I have spent some time being X-rayed, and had a flood of visitors. Now the situation as I see it:

  1. To comfort you, let me say at once that our own work on the [?] and theoretical is internationally regarded as outstanding; I wish my own attempt at a textbook had sold as well and as long as your ‘habitat, economy, and society’. Second, everyone recognises that your contribution through the IAI to research and study has been really outstanding, and in the end amounts to much more than one individual or head of department has done – plus the fact that you built an outstandingly good department. In the IAI one has only to list the achievements: Africa [?] into a first class Journal; an outstanding set of books in two [? ?] several fields; the invaluable ethnographical survey; the invaluable African Abstracts the most successful series of seminars [? ?] which anyone has ever run – and you ran them all; … information and vision; [?] you not only had the idea, and I can remember had to persuade your colleagues but you found the finance and inspired people and organised them to work and produce the goods. All this was done in a complex political situation – the French and Italians etc. not easy to work with; changes of Chairmen; and above all independence in Africa [? … ]about ‘white’ intervention in studying them. It is a terrific achievement (and writing I have forgotten the research fellowships) – terrific. No-one else could have done it. You asked me whether you had been at fault in not training a successor. the simple truth is that was [sic] no-one who could possibly succeed you, to run the IAI with anything like your success. If there is any fault it lies with people like Meyer and me, who discussed the situation but could not see where someone could be found to take over from you, either in terms of ability and skill or in terms of being acceptable to British, French, Italians, Germans, Belgians, [?Dutch], and above all Africans. We could have, and would have, suggested a successor to be trained had we been able to think of someone.

MS 450

 

2/2/222/ continued:

  1. You have also kept the IAI going in the face of new competition from other organisations arising from the new fashion for Africa; organisations which competed with us for money – and you have therefore had to do so in a situation where it was more difficult to raise money and costs were rising – and through three changes in secretary.
  2. Unlike a University department, which is carried by the whole university, the IAI is on its own; hence it is much more vulnerable. I myself feel that it may have to go into a period of restricted [/page 2] activity – maybe AFRICA and publications and a little more for a time; but that the work has been so invaluable it will recoup. (I add to what has been done the card index and those great bibliographies). Some things will have to go. Our main problem is whether we should reduce the number of actual Exco meetings when the business is less and settle much business by letter. But possibly it would be best to have this discussed at the Officers meeting and not raise it in Exco for the future until next year – I’ll think that over.
  3. My main concern is you and your health. You have the Exco meeting to run and two seminars whose organisers are most inefficient. If you insist that you must do all this, then equally I insist privately, and I shall insist at the Exco meeting, that we forbid you to take on anything more in the way of worrying about funds (we can rest on our bonus for a while), etc., and propose that Exco – or preferably [?] officers discuss the future apart from you. You have too much on already to take on anything more – and I hope you will show this letter to Evelyn and get her on our side. You must rest – and the future of the IAI is something we should worry about – I know you are concerned in it, but you just cannot do it on top of everything else.
  4. I repeat, be sensible and now leave what is to be done in the future – if anything can be done – to others, while you battle with your three meetings. Looking forward to seeing you and Evelyn Sunday, As ever Max
  5. You might get our Secretary to tell the Registrar at Lusaka that Mary and I are coming to the seminar. I have little hope that Van Velsen will do so.

PPS. I also told you that to get 10 good books out of 10 seminars was a great achievement, and if the last three, or one or two of them falter, as is likely with so much initiative now inevitably given to Africa – well, to some extent it was to be expected – even statistically.

2/2/236.2/ CDF, 20 Feb. 1973 – letter virtually illegible (tp.; faded copy) [transcript: You will [?] that at its June 1973 meeting the Executive Council agreed to the establishment of a small Review Committee to consider the Institute’s [?current situation]; to make a realistic appraisal of its prospective financial resources; and to make concrete proposals regarding the future role and the orientation of its activities. The composition of the committee and its mode of functioning was left to the Chairman (Council minute no. ?1847). For a number of reasons, including the heavy burden of current work in the Institute it has not been possible to prepare for convening this committee before now. The Chairman however considers that he should now constitute the committee and arrange for it to meet here in London at a convenient date between [? ?]. I am writing now, on the Chairman’s behalf, to invite you to serve on this committee and to let him know as soon as possible whether you would be able to come to London at any time during this period. He feels that the committee should be a fairly small one but at the same time it should be as widely representative as possible of our Council’s membership, and would very much like to include the [?] Council members, one Anglophone and one Francophone. Since we have no special funds at our disposal to meet the travel costs of committee members attending from overseas, it will possibly be necessary to convene the meeting at a time when African members of the Council are visiting Europe, and be in consulting [?]. Subject to this, the most convenient dates seem likely to be Wednesday 4th or Thursday 5th [?]. In the past month or two the Chairman has consulted the members of the Institute and received from them some suggestions regarding future activities of the Institute and it is intended to embody these and some of the ideas put forward at the last council meeting in a memorandum for consideration by the Review Committee. Yours sincerely … Director
