"About Clough Williams-Ellis's autobiography: I hadn't noticed, until you pointed it out, how little there is about Russell."
Crawshay-Williams thinks the reasons may be both a lack of interest in people as compared to buildings and a lack of interest in philosophy. He then adds what he thinks is the main reason: "(This is only my wife's and my opinion; we have not talked about it recently to CWE) that Ralph Schoenman was so unpleasantly rude (in our presence) to CWE at the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis, that it somewhat soured CWE's recent memories of BR and his advisers. (Schoenman was rude also to us, and to other of BR's local friends, and to some extent he alienated them.) BR did in fact write to CWE apologizing for Schoenman; but perhaps the damage was done."
