Oxford and Berlin

(p.59) Chapter Three Oxford and Berlin
Alain L. Locke
University of Chicago Press

This chapter explores Alain L. Locke's life at Oxford University and at the University of Berlin. Friendships from Harvard University served to bridge the cultural distance between America and England. In addition to Horace Kallen, there was the exuberant presence of J. Arthur Harley, whom Locke described as being swell-headed as usual. Locke may have felt that the pressures of a new social order called on him to exercise that “diplomatic” aspect of his character he had polished at Harvard. Seeing to it that he was made coxswain of a rowing crew, he suggested he was improving enough that he might even row for the university team. By the middle of the winter, Locke was thinking about the piece he had been commissioned to write for the Independent about his Oxford experience.
