Typescript letter from Benians to W.H. Moberly

Scope and Content

Benians laid up - Moberley should meet Sibly without him. B agrees that universities should produce people to teach American history in schools. To do this subject needs to have place in one of Honours Exams. History of USA and British Empire used to be compulsory subject in Part I of Economics Tripos but it dropped when Tripos reformed. Best line of approach to find place for American history in Historical Tripos. It would help if subject endowed with Chair, Readership or Lectureshhip. Would M like B to talk to Chairman of the Faculty Board, Master of Trinity and others to collect views on matter?
