However, it was he who one day contacted me and then the same question Country Email List of the last name appeared. It was around 1968 or 1969. Carr wrote me a letter at my Oxford address Country Email List addressed to “Mrs. Bruce." He would say something like, "Dear Mrs. Bruce, I wonder if you have noticed that a Country Email List 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. I hurried over and we became, I think, friends. He was quite.
Curious. His office was at Trinity College, Cambridge. I remember walking up many Country Email List dark stairs to get there and his own rooms were dark, and there he was: a tall, older, impressive-looking man sitting Country Email List behind his desk. Then I came in, a petite young woman. Through our conversations I found out why she was interested in my work. Although he was not primarily engaged in cultural history, I had a section on cultural politics in the book Country Email ListI was writing. I think it was the second volume ofFoundations of a planned economy . It was obvious from my published article on Lunacharsky that I knew something about it, and he wanted to find out.
Carr stayed in touch even after I left for the US . In a way, he was more present with me Country Email List than I was with him. Not because I hadn't wanted to, but rather because I thought, "He's a great man, and who am I?" In 1971, when she was no longer married to Alex, and was living in London, in a relationship with a journalist who Country Email List worked for the Financial Times , Carr wrote to me at the home of this person, whom she had never mentioned, instead of writing to my Oxford address.
