There was a very interesting symmetry, if you like, because neither Jim Ede nor the University was the client, there was a twin client. So there was this symmetry between responding to the committee on the one hand, who I suppose ultimately had a final say, but there was also, could be, three or four times weekly response to a question, or a letter even, from Jim directly, saying that this or that was of interest to him. There was a period, looking back through the files, I found I’d written something like fifteen letters to Jim in response to material that he’d put down in print, handwritten notes, sometimes of several pages, sometimes deeply felt, agonizing almost over certain aspects of what he might or might not have and there would be consistencies and inconsistencies over a period of time but it was necessary to respond. To a large extent it was possible to convince all and sundry that one could get quite a substantial building on this site of a certain form and that was generally backed.
