Scope and Content

Typescript letters from Geoffrey Pyke [Geoffrey Nathaniel Joseph Pyke (1893-1948), educationist and inventor]. The letters relate to the position of Jews in Germany, the [Jewish] A[cademic] A[ssistance] C[ouncil] and to a movement for research into the causes of anti- Semitism.

['In 1934… he (Pyke) began to work on a major project again, proposing the establishment of a research institute in South Africa to meet the intellectual challenge of the Nazis' racial and antisemitic theories. This idea came to nothing…' Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.]
