Meanwhile, in Cambridge was EH Carr, C Level Contact List the prolific writer, diplomat, and historian, whose studies of the USSR had become highly relevant. Did you have contact with Carr? What impression did his work make on you? When I went to Oxford, Soviet history was not considered a very legitimate object of study. Among other things, it C Level Contact List was seen as too contemporary and it was assumed that archival material could not be obtained. I saw it as a more or less virgin field in the 1960s. There were hardly a few people studying C Level Contact List these subjects, but I thought of them as essentially political scientists who had drifted into the field of history.
In short, there was no one whose work on C Level Contact List Soviet history I found to be of great interest at Oxford. The two people who had a job that C Level Contact List was serious and interesting to me were Leonard Schapiro at the London School of Economics and EH Carr at Cambridge. And I had a relationship with both. Until the moment Leonard C Level Contact List decided that he didn't like him ideologically, he was very supportive and a big sponsor. In Carr's case things turned out differently, and I have often wondered why I didn't go to Cambridge to study with him in the first place.
It is one of the mysteries of life, but C Level Contact List the truth is that I did not do it. In fact, I didn't contact Carr either, although I greatly admired his work. However, it was he who one day contacted me and then the same question of the C Level Contact List last name appeared. It was around 1968 or 1969. Carr wrote me a letter at my Oxford address addressed to “Mrs. Bruce." He would say something like, "Dear Mrs. Bruce, I C Level Contact List wonder if you have noticed that a person named Fitzpatrick is working on your subject and has published this article...». So I replied, "That's me" (I'm sure he knew and the letter was his little joke). He invited me to go to Cambridge and visit him.
