Biographies & Memoirs / Biography / The Great and The Good by Edmund Heward Edmund Heward Barry Rose Publishers, 1994: first edition hardcover in dust jacket: 264 pages including index; a gift from the author to "John", on 12.7.'98. Page vii, second page  of the acknowledgment, has attached  publisher's panel. Synopsis: Rather than writing  a full biography, (Lord Radcliffe had destroyed all his personal papers], in this volume Edmund Heward  records the magnitude  of his subject's  public service, first outlining  his following   achievements in a two page preface .  Over a period of forty years Lord Radcliffe served as Director- General of the Ministry of Information: as a Commissioner to divide India,  and  to make a  new constitution for  Cyprus: as Chairman of a Royal Commission to revise the tax laws:  as Chairman of a committee to consider the monetary system: and as Chairman of a number of security enquiries.  He had many interests in the educational and cultural worlds.  He was Chairman of the trustees of the British Museum, Vice -chairman of the Court of London University,  and Chairman of the Advisory Committee of the BBC.  He was a collector of French impressionist  and other paintings,   and  lectured on a variety of subjects from the law to Rudyard Kipling. He  was the Reith  Lecturer for  the BBC, and  wrote and spoke in great style.  Only two  ambitions evaded him: he failed  to build the new British Library on the Bloomsbury site;   and although  his friend, Gulbenkian intended  he  be  chairman of a World Wide foundation for the Arts, he  failed to establish the trusts before his death , and Radcliffe felt unable to agree to  the terms required by the Portuguese Government .The author describes his subject as a romantic, outwardly formidable , inwardly sensitive; with a keen sense of humour, and held in warm affection by family and close friends.
