Dear madam,

Thanks for the reply Sir

On 8 November 1946 Lionel McColvin, librarian of the City of Westminster in London, long-serving honorary secretary of the Library Association and Britain's most prominent librarian, began a three-month visit to Australia which resulted in a substantial report on Australian libraries. Welcoming him at the Rose Bay flying boat base in Sydney was John Metcalfe, Principal librarian of the Public Library of New South Wales, the recently elected president of the Australian Institute of Librarians and Australia's leading librarian. The two knew of each other's work and had met briefly 11 years earlier when Metcalfe was visiting London. Now Metcalfe would help his colleague settle in, albeit briefly, in Sydney, inviting him to his home in Dover Heights and obtaining ration coupons to buy replacements for the Englishman's worn clothing, which was in any case too heavy for the Australian summer. Despite a later reputation for sartorial insouciance, Metcalfe always knew that it was important to dress for the occasion. For McColvin was due to meet ministers, senior bureaucrats, mayors, councillors and others of influence across the length and breadth of Australia. Whilst the itinerary was being finalised, the two men, good talkers both, began an exchange of ideas and a flow of contrasting viewpoints which would continue for virtually the whole time McColvin was in New South Wales. It was a cordial clash of intellects and a happy beginning to the visit, but it might easily have been very different. Right up to the moment when McColvin stepped onto Australian soil, Australian librarians had been squabbling bitterly about the way the visit had been arranged. On that Friday evening, waiting to welcome McColvin, was the most outspoken critic of all: John Metcalfe.

Thanks Sir
