Identifier: Coll-41/10/9

Scope and Contents

From the Series:

These files chiefly look to have been collated by Waddington as 'research files' on a particular topic. It would appear that Waddington collected various magazine articles and press cuttings on certain subjects of interest to him or upon which he was writing or lecturing. Many files also contain correspondence relevant to the related research topics, event, lecture and so forth.

Most of the files of correspondence contain original letters from correspondents, as well as manuscript or carbon copies of Waddington's responses.

Biographical / Historical

The report was written by Professor T.L Cottrell, then Principal of Stirling University, who, along with Waddington and four others, was part of the British Council delegation. The visit to Italy was at the invitation of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in return for the visit to Britain made by an Italian scientific delegation in the autumn of 1969, and was for the purpose of a comparative study of 'the university system of the two countries, with special reference to the organisation of scientific training and research' as well as an examination of the humanities.
