Example text

Therefore, when James Klugmann arrived in Cambridge in October 1931 to take up his place at Trinity College, he already had good connections to the embryonic Cambridge communist group which had come together over the previous months. The Gresham’s cohort would be increased the following year with the arrival of Brian Simon, who would go on to become president of the National Union of Students, and Klugmann kept in touch with the Floud brothers, Bernard and Peter, at Oxford and the London School of Economics (LSE).

As a precocious 16-year-old, John Cornford had taken a two-term course at the LSE prior to going up to Cambridge. Like Klugmann at Gresham’s, he resented the Officer Training Corps, became anti-militarist and atheist in outlook, and had taken an anti-authoritarian stance in opposition to the school authorities, debating, amongst other things, religion with the school chaplain. However, he enjoyed debates on Marxism with his closest schoolfriend, Tristan Jones. He and Jones, who had visited Russia in 1932, read Capital, Wage Labour and Capital and the Communist Manifesto together and they both considered joining the Communist Party.

Klugmann, Kitty and Maurice Cornforth set up the meeting in discussion with the Party leadership at King Street. The meeting established a National Student Bureau – with Meyer its first secretary – and identified the need for a stronger communist strategy in the universities in order to win leading positions, bring in outside speakers and dominate existing left and labour associations. This strategy quickly paid off, with more cells, members and a growing communist presence beyond the three largest centres (Cambridge, Oxford and the LSE) to include 12 more universities in Britain.
