Article entitled 'Oxford reformed', 1964-1970


  • How to

Darlington lists this in his bibliography under 1965 as 'Submitted to Encounter, 4 May (unpublished)'. In a footnote to his drafts he accurately sums up the history of the article as 'invited by Encounter November 1964 - submitted to Encounter May 1965 - rejected by Encounter 1 June 1966'. This delay, and cavalier treatment, prompted Darlington to correspond with the Society of Authors and others, especially after the widespread press comment on the CIA's involvement in the finances of Encounter. The periodical commissioned and published a shorter article 'Oxford Unreformed', Encounter, 28 (Jan 1967) and a correction in the March issue (MS. Darlington c. 18/C.99).
