Kenneth Harrison

Note by Gertude Phillips concerning Harrison (undated)

[Note: Gertrude Phillips was the P&E office secretary.  This excerpt is in response to a letter she returned to Purcell, probably in the 1930s as he did research for the writing of the Parabiographies.  Unfortunately, the original questions did not survive alongside her answers, of which the following was part of one].

Kenneth Harrison, the one the boys called the "Booze-Arts" man - and he was, at that. He was a step-son of Professor Beard at the University I believe. At any rate, he had some left-handed connection with Harrington Beard, the art dealer.
