Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter describes the role of the British Federation of University Women and its relationship to the Academic Assistance Council/Society for the Protection of Science and Learning, or, perhaps more specifically, the relationship of its secretary Dr Erna Hollitscher to Esther Simpson. It highlights how women scholars are almost completely absent from the historiography of the rescue efforts of this period.

Keywords: Academic Assistance Council; SPSL; Erna Hollitscher; Esther Simpson; women scholars; British Federation of University Women
