Acknowledgements and Feedback

The main payback for archivists is the acknowledgements they and their archives receive when researchers become authors and publish the results of their work. Sometimes it is a simple citation – “I used this archive” or “Thankyou to…” Sometimes it is more detailed. Often it is the only public trace an archivist leaves; and the only direct evidence that what we do is of value to others. Needless to say, acknowledgements are valued and treasured by the archivists themselves.

“Although there are numerous sources to back up this observation, it was initially brought to my attention by Dr. Craig Fees in an interview with him on July 21, 2004. Dr. Fees is the archivist at the Planned Environment Therapy Trust in Cheltenham where the archives of the Dialectics of Liberation Congress are Held. I am extremely grateful to him not only for the generous assistance he provided me in the archives but also for the insightful conversations I had with him about the Congress, its organizers, and its participants.”

A number of people have been enthusiastic supporters, contributing encouragement as well as practical help.

Craig Fees who runs the archive was showing me round when I saw Alexis Korner’s photograph (one used for one of his record albums) on the cover of a book lying on a table. ‘What’s that doing here?’ I asked. ‘Oh, he was a boy at Finchden Manor,’ said Craig. I had stumbled on a bridge between two parts of my life, and between two British cultural movements, which suggested that they were connected by something more than simply being part of the same zeitgeist.”

Dr. Lawrence Friedman, Professor of History at Indiana University, in a letter to Planned Environment Therapy Trust Chairman John Cross, October 4, 1999 [quoted with Dr. Friedman’s permission]:

“The Planned Environment Therapy Archive and Study Centre is much more than an archival source for my British research. In Craig Fees, you have perhaps the most knowledgeable and sophisticated guide-counselor on the history of psychotherapy I have known. Craig listens very closely and always raises the difficult questions. Through Craig, moreover, your Centre has established a working group of scholars whose interests and research overlap decidedly with my own (including Robert Hinshelwood, Lesley Caldwell, Malcolm Pines, and Tom Harrison)…. As you have probably already discovered, I regard Church Lane in Cheltenham as my British research home and look forward to returning for another good research stint.”
