On Harley's thesis, which explores Russell's ideas and Beacon Hill School.

"I am forced to conclude as the result of my research that the theoretical foundation behind Beacon Hill at least at the beginning was Russell's despite the fact that he did not take much hand in the actual running of the school. ... His first publication on education in Principles of Social Reconstruction came out in 1916 and can not be attributed to any influence from Dora as they had not even met at the time he was writing it. ... I have also uncovered a letter which Russell wrote in 1896 to his first wife Alys in which he says that he would like to start a co-educational school in order to teach any children he might have a sensible attitude towards sex. This proves that he had considered starting up a school a long time before having met Dora."
