Notes, topics or text 

On BR's Australian lecture tour in 1950.

"Lord Russell is a most charming person, very simple and pleasant to meet, with no fuss, and is most co-operative. ... The response to the lectures here was terrific—the hall we had the lectures in holds 1,150. There were about 100 standing, and about 450 at an overflow meeting to which the lectures were relayed. He holds his audiences amazingly—practically no coughing, which is most unusual in Melbourne. ... Lord Russell did quite a bit of work here on articles and correspondence, and we arranged for a stenographer from a typing agency for him, and also for some copying to be done by an agency."
